Hi there! I’m beyond excited that you found me and I am very excited to get to know you! I was a bride before I was a photographer, so I value & encourage choosing a photographer who will not only create beautiful images for you and of your love, but could also be your friend. It’s such a special relationship to have and I hope that learning a little bit about who I am will help you choose me to make memories with you.
For as long as I can remember, I was dedicated to being a traditional teacher in a classroom, but after getting engaged and marrying my husband, I couldn't imagine spending my life any other way than creating. I absolutely fell in love with the way my own photographer made me feel in front of the camera and felt a truly magnetic pull to do the same for others. After six years of marriage and an extraordinary journey with my business, I'm more in love with being a wedding photographer than ever before!
I also love my sweet little family and things that sparkle and living on the North Shore of Massachusetts and traveling (especially to shoot weddings!) and gold foil. I’ve recently become addicted to avocado and Starbucks, but never at the same time. A clean home makes me happy but I can easily pass on tidying up to spend the night laughing so hard I cry.
I will always choose quality time. I will also always choose to do my best for you, and to dream as big as you do so that your image collection and experience with me is
everything you’ve ever wanted.
There are moments at each session & wedding I photograph that truly take my breath away. It can be as simple as a bride whispering "I'm so excited & I'm so lucky!" after reaching a note from her groom. It can be as fleeting as a mother brushing her baby girl's hair off her forehead. It can be as grand as a handwritten letter being read aloud during toasts from the grandmother too ill to travel. Despite their size or audience, these are the moments that matter.
When these moments happen, when I see the way my clients fill with joy at the very emotion they're experiencing, then later see themselves in a moment they didn't know they would visually love so much... I know I've done my job. My heart for photography comes from relationships and my inspiration is fueled by the raw emotion attached to every single one. I'm drawn to overwhelming love, but mostly by the people that share & express it for me to capture.
If I could only choose one source
of inspiration for the rest of my life,
it would be water. Everything about
the way it moves, sounds, and feels breathes life into me.
There are few things that enrich a space (and my soul) like fresh florals - my favorites are peonies, ranunculus, garden roses, and fresh cut sprigs of olive branch.
Tears that roll slowly down cheeks, the kind of smiles that go from eyes to ears to cheeks and back again, snug embraces that seem to linger for days... all the best things to photograph!
There are so many places I want to see, memories I want to capture, and images I want to create.
I want to share my dreams just in case you were the person meant to make one of them come true.
