My style of wedding photography is photojournalistic. While capturing formal portraits are important, I also believe the ambiance of your day & the life-force of your invited guests is of equal priority. With a gentle eye, I will steer your formal photographs to best reflect your personalities, while simultaneously documenting those subtle yet profound candid moments that make up such an important day. I keep a keen watch as the day naturally unfolds so you have a record long after the day has passed you by.
High school introduced me to photography & there I spent my waking hours shooting film, developing, & printing deep within the darkroom. From there I went to Otis School of Art & Design to study Fine Art Photography (2001-2005), which exposed me to art theory & artist's studio practices. After college I flexed my logistical side & produced art fairs (2004-2012) that shared contemporary art to communities in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami, & New York. In 2013 I transitioned into a small business owner & made photography my full-time world. So if you will, find comfort in knowing that art & photography are a part of my physiological make-up & the path I've taken shows this.
My camera & I stay vigilant throughout your day, which no doubt will have many moving parts, while maintaining an unobtrusive & honest presence.
STAY IN THE MOMENT. I’LL SUPPORT YOU & DO THE REST.

KIVA LOAN PLEDGE - I pledge to make a Kiva loan for every wedding that I book. This is something that has been important for me to integrate into my wedding photography business from the beginning. It hasn't escaped me how becoming a small business owner has changed my life for the better. I am grateful to have had the privilege & opportunity to see my goals through. I believe when you are given a chance to work towards a life that you deliberately design for yourself, it can be transformative & ripple positively outwards. The empowerment that results is priceless & I believe that all humans deserve the right to choose what they want for themselves & see their vision come to fruition. Struggle is real, I've been through my share, & it's time to do my part to help fellow dreamers & builders. (www.kiva.org)
