well, hello there!
I'm inspired by people and by love, by those who are honest and authentic to themselves, and by the interactions that shape who we are ...
When I'm not talking someone's ear off, I'm a Netflix-binging, dog-loving, sometimes-a-neat-freak type of girl who doesn't give two hoots about fashion trends and has a thing for bad reality tv (Bachelor in Paradise, anyone?).
I was born and raised in New Jersey and still reside here with my hubby of three years and my 12-year-old springer Lexi (I've had her since she was seven weeks old so we've got a BOND like no other).
I'm also a bit of a workaholic. I've been shooting weddings officially since 2008 and just went full time (holy moly) in 2015. I love incorporating natural moments and the elements (couldn't you tell?) in the story of your day.
Having a first-class seat to the most important day of your life is what keeps me going at it again and again, so if you're feeling what I'm putting down and you're ready to chat and see if we actually vibe...let's connect.
Over the course of many years working hard to create consistent and beautiful photographs, one major thing that has been impressed upon me is the importance of the EXPERIENCE. Weddings are amazing, a roller-coaster whirlwind ride, and many of the people who will help you get to the other side still standing are the very vendors you hire and trust to guide you.
I'm a stickler with communication, so you'll never find me ghosting you. I'll be guiding you with tips, expectations, questionnaires and timelines, answering all of your e-mailed questions within hours, and having a good laugh (and a good cocktail!) with you during your engagement session.
My goal is simple: I will work WITH you and FOR you. If your mom wants photos with all of your aunts and their aunts' aunts', we'll make it happen! If you want to try a certain photo, but are a little embarrassed to admit it, let me know and it's as good as done.

We'll setup a time to talk. Either video chat or in-person locally to me, whatever works for you! Weddings are a HUGE DEAL, so I want to make sure I understand where my couples are regarding style and vision. This means "meeting" you, in person or on video chat. We can plan a FaceTime "date" or chat over coffee in my town.

You let me know which collection you've selected and we get that contract signed and the retainer paid to secure your date (30% of the total!). We pop open a bottle of celebratory champagne, real or imaginary.
One little note: I can't save any date without a contract signed and retainer paid. I do put a courtesy 72 hour hold on your wedding date after consultation, but beyond that, nothing is secured on the calendar. Dates book up fast (I'm not kidding, some people book two years in advance), so be ready to LOCK IT IN if you're in love!
