I’m a full-time couples/elopement/wedding photographer living in New York City. I began my photography journey at the age of 11 when my parents tasked me with documenting our family trip to China. The moment I snapped my first photo, I felt a rush of excitement fill my body. Knowing that with just the click of a button, I could ‘write’ any story that I could imagine was so mind-blowingly amazing that I can’t even put it into words. From that moment on, I knew that photography was going to play a role in my life, I just didn’t know how big that role was going to be.
A few years later I discovered my passion for photographing love stories when my sweet cousin allowed me to snap some photos during her wedding. I absolutely fell in love with the feeling of helping others capture such special memories, from getting ready to dancing the night away and all the moments (big and small) in between!
I honestly still can’t believe that I get to document and share love stories as a job. While my journey to becoming a full time couples/elopement/wedding photographer has been circuitous to say the least, I’m so happy and grateful that this is where I’ve ended up. I’m so excited to share more of my story with you and can’t wait to hear and document yours! My hope is that you’ll walk away from this experience with not only beautiful, timeless photos but also a new friend :)
I think we're a match!
Getting in front of the camera and getting your photo taken by a total stranger can be really scary and stressful. Trust me, I get it!
That's why I love to get to know my couples on a more personal/friendship level. We'll spend time before our session getting to know one another so by the time it comes to take your picture, you'll feel like an old friend is behind the camera. Plus, truly getting to know you allows me to capture images that truly represent how special, warm, and magical your relationship is. I want you to know that I am completely committed to making sure that
When I'm not capturing images of my cutie couples, you can find me chilling on the couch with some sort of dessert (sour gummy worms, dark chocolate, or a warm chocolate chip cookie) watching the latest episode of Euphoria or mystery movie.
While photography is my main hobby, I also love to bake. My grandmother taught me how to bake at a really young age and I've been baking ever since. Giving people baked goods is just one of my love languages. Some of my favorite things to bake include chocolate chip cookies, mini cupcakes, and pumpkin spiced sheet cake with cinnamon cream cheese frosting.
On the weekends, my lovely boyfriend, Jared, and I like go get out and explore new areas of New York. At least one night a week, we like to try a new sushi restaurant. We also like to take our precious doxie Sadie out for a long walk.
So that’s a little sneak peek into my life and a few of my favourite things. No matter who and where we are, we’re all souls wandering this beautiful earth, with a different story to share. No tale is one and the same. And that’s why I LOVE documenting love stories (and hopefully yours too!)”
I know it sounds cheesy, but honestly, each and every one of my couples inspires me on the daily. I love hearing about your story, your plans, and dreams and I get so excited thinking about ways to incorporate these things into our session.
My style is definitely inspired by golden/warm sunshine, genuine laughter, being outdoors and in nature, and authentic connection.
My goal when photographing is to document your love story in an authentic and meaningful way so that you can relive that day for years and generations to come.
One of the most important things to me is that you feel super comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera on the day of your wedding/elopement/session. Instead of stiff, awkward poses, I choose to focus on prompts that will encourage you to connect naturally with your partner.
I like to think of myself as an extroverted introvert. I know when to jump in and give you a little direction (like what to do with your hands), but also when to just sit back and capture the magic between you two unfold.
Above all else, I want to make sure that your experience in front of the lens is a fun and memorable one. The last thing I want for you is to feel like getting your photo taken is another chore on your to do list.
I absolutely love to travel and I am so lucky that my parents introduced me to it from a very young age. Through travel, I have discovered new places that truly feel like a home away from home. Travel has really shaped me into the person I am today and I want to continue growing and seeing more of the gorgeous places the world has to offer.
