SO NICE TO FINALLY SAY HI

About Us


What? You thought this was going to about me? I'll get to that but more importantly this is about you + me and how we will get along.

You are marrying your best friend, the love of your life, the Marshall to your Lily, the JayZ to your Beyoncé, the Blake Lively to your Ryan Reynolds, you know the one you can't live without, and at the end of the day if it means rain on your big day, things are running 10 minutes late, or the wind blowing your veil all over the place during the ceremony, it doesn't matter because you realize life is imperfectly perfect, you two know this is about something bigger, this is about the two you and the people you love and the memories you are creating laughing, toasting and tearing up over love and forever.

This is where I come in, someone to document your love. You probably haven't had professional photos done together. Worries of feeling awkward and not knowing what to do or where to put your hands may make you just feel uncomfortable. Don't worry - this is the fun part. Modeling is hard work and I will work with you to make sure you are feeling comfortable and having fun along the way. We will do a combination of posed and "unposed photos" you know the hard things like walking holding hands or cocktails, fixing your fly always and then telling you not to care about them and embrace them and teach you some secrets on how to rock your photos. By the end of your session I hope we feel like old friends and you're laughing about how much fun that was.

Along the way, I am there to help and support you.

Let's me make one thing clear - don't worry about your mother, moms love me. I'll make sure she has the family photos she wants for the Christmas cards.


About Me


I will cry at your wedding, because I love weddings and I love your story.

Growing up I never imagined I would be a wedding photographer and actually swore when I went back to school for photography at 30 I would never do weddings. When I moved back to the Bay Area from Brooklyn, I second shot a wedding, got into my car and cried, not just a couple tears, I ugly cried and could hear my mother in my head saying "never say never because you know what that means." I fell in love with weddings instantly and in a way I knew there was no going back and since then have photographed over 150 weddings. I fell in love with it all - there is so much beauty in love, for the careful time spent getting ready, watching traditions combine when new families are formed, the flowers (I'm a sucker for pretty florals), the toasting and of course the dance party. You'll probably catch me dancing along as the night goes on.

I tend to have a hard time staying in one place. Besides the Bay Area, I have lived in Portland, Oregon - spoiled by amazing coffee on every corner, Western Massachusetts, where the fall makes you fall in love with life, cozy sweaters and cider donuts, and New York City - my favorite place in the world besides my home in the Bay Area. Since moving home to the Bay, I've been luckily enough to travel for photography.
