I am a lover of love. Seeing people in love gives me inspiration, it gives me hope and it moves me to create some of my best work. And while I have done all types of weddings from big to small, I really love the small and intimate declarations of love. Think rustic, barns, wilderness, forest, private island in the middle of the Caribbean (yes I believe in manifesting my dreams) and I am THERE!

Do you know what else I love? Courthouse weddings, Travel, Destination Weddings. Have wedding, will travel. That’s a new saying I just made up. I’ve done NJ Weddings, but have also traveled for weddings out of state and I’m ready to do some more of that!

But there are a few requirements I have for my couples. In order for me to give you my absolute best work, there needs to be love. When there is love in the air my creative energy flows naturally. I prefer to capture the “feeling” of the day. The ambiance, the emotions, the connections. I want to be more of a guest at your wedding than the hired photographer. Your friends and family should feel like I’m one of your friends who just has a passion for capturing your special day. Because actually, if you book me, chances are that is exactly what happens. We become friends. As soon as you choose me to capture one of the most important days of your life, you tell me that you trust me and you love the thing that I am most passionate about; my photography work.

So what do you say? Do you think we would be a good fit? Because THAT is VERY important!
