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 and a sense of enlightenment 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 :)
Let's talk about your day!
i'm so glad you're here xoxo
I work hard to create an environment where you and your partner feel comfortable enough to be your authentic selves. Rather than putting you into stiff, awkward poses, I like to focus on prompts that will encourage you two to interact in an effortless and natural way.

exploring new places
My parents exposed me to travel from an early age and for that I am so truly thankful! From dipping my toes into the ocean for the first time on the beaches of St. Tropez to studying abroad in Switzerland for a semester, travel has truly molded me into the photographer and person I am today.
my precious sadie
Growing up, my family always had dachshunds in our home. They are my mom's favorite breed and now mine too (I mean just look at their little faces)! I always knew I wanted to get a doxie and in the midst of the pandemic/being back home seemed like the perfect time. My little sadie lady means the world to me and is hands down the best editing buddy :)
my cutie boyfriend
Like a lot of other couples nowadays, my boyfriend, Jared, and I met on a dating app. I couldn't believe that someone so kind, funny, and handsome wasn't already taken (lucky me!). About one month into dating, Texas had its apocalyptic snowstorm and long story short, led to his apartment building catching fire, him temporarily moving into my parent's house with me, and then the pipes bursting and subsequently flooding the downstairs of my parent's house. Needless to say, if we made it through all this, we can make it through anything.
I would not be able to do what I do today without the constant love + support from Jared. He is my best friend and I can't wait to see what the future has in store for us!
