I know that experience of planning a wedding or elopement can feel overwhelming, confusing, tedious, and even frustrating at times.

But let me be the first to tell you, it doesn’t have to be this way!

 That’s where I come in. I will do my absolute best to make sure that the whole planning process is as stress and worry-free as possible. I’ll help you find the perfect location/venue, recommend the best vendors, and create a unique timeline so that you can focus on what really matters, getting married to the love of your life! Together, we’ll create a day that is SO you.

What to expect from your new york wedding photographer

Whether you're looking for a photographer for your wedding, elopement or couples session, it's SO important that you find the right photographer for you, one that you vibe and connect with on a personal level. I'm all about capturing candid & heartfelt moments between you and your loved ones and it is so much easier for me to do that when we feel comfortable with and trust each other!

My number one goal as your wedding photographer is for you to be able to relive your day every time you look back on your wedding/elopement photos. I want you be able to relive the excitement you felt as you got ready for your ceremony, the overwhelming sense of joy as you said kissed the love of your life for the first time as a married couple, or the sound of laughter as you danced the night away with your friends and family. 

I take a documentary style approach to photographing weddings and elopements, which basically means that I capture all the moments, no matter how big or small, surrounding your day. I especially love capturing those candid, heartfelt, in-between moments that really exemplify how special and one-of-a-kind your relationship is.

To do this, it's really important that I get to know my couples on a more personal level. Every couple is unique and I want your photos to truly look and feel like who you are as a couple. Whether you're the kind of couple who is always laughing and playing around with each other or the kind of couple who is a little more quiet and reserved, I'll give you prompts that will help bring out your true, authentic selves.

Your experience in front of the camera

Let's face it, getting your picture taken can be a nerve-racking experience. Trust me, I TOTALLY get that. That's why I aim to make you and your partner feel super relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera. Instead of sticking you in stiff, awkward poses that may not feel like something you'd actually ever do, I like to focus on movement based prompts that will encourage you to naturally connect with your partner. Often times, couples tell me they've never done professional photos, and that is 100% okay! We can take things at your pace and even play some of your favorite music to make you feel as comfortable as possible. I like to think of myself as an extroverted introvert, which means I know when to jump in an give you direction (like what to do with your hands or let you know if a piece of hair is out of place), but also when to step back and just let you two do your thing. Your comfort is my number one priority during our shoot and I promise I'll work hard to make sure you and your partner feel relaxed and stress-free during our session.

frequently asked questions

01/      Where are you based and do you travel for shoots or weddings?

I am based in New York City, but I am always down to travel for weddings/elopements and couples sessions. To ensure that all my couples get my absolute best, I limit the number of destination sessions I take each year so reach out ASAP if you're thinking of having a destination wedding/elopement or session. 

02/      My partner and I have never had professional photos taken and we're a little nervous, is that okay?

That is TOTALLY okay! Most of the couples I work with have never gotten their photos professionally taken. I totally understand that getting your picture taken can be kind of scary, which is why I work really hard to make sure you feel as relaxed and comfortable as possible during our shoot. To learn more about what it's like to work with me, check out my Experience page!

03/      How long will it take to get our photos and how do you deliver them?

It typically takes me anywhere 2-4 weeks to deliver couples session galleries and 6-10 weeks to deliver wedding/elopement galleries. Don't worry, I will keep you updated on the process. I deliver all galleries through an online platform called Pixieset. You will be sent a link to the gallery via email and will be able to download them from there!

04/      Are you vaccinated against COVID-19?

I am vaxxed and boosted. Your health and safety is very important to me which is why I am up to date on the vaccine and will get any boosters that come out in the future! 

05/      Are our images safe with you?

I'm glad you asked! I shoot all my sessions on two SD cards, store all the images on two hard drives, upload all images to the cloud, and keep all images on the original SD cards until I deliver your gallery. I also store one of the SD cards and hard drives in a fire/water proof safe. Call me crazy, but I'd rather not leave losing your images to chance!
