I absolutely LOVE what I do! I have been married to my best friend for 6 years and we have 3 wild boys and 1 less wild pup. I love all things coffee, and fall, because layers (am I right?!) I binge listen to true crime podcasts, (any muderino's?), and my guilty pleasure is watching CW shows while editing. I listen to my music on vinyl, which I introduced my husband too, even if he won't admit it and I am in totally love with my French heritage. And while my feet are planted in Connecticut, I often photograph weddings in The Hudson Valley, NYC, and throughout New England.
I believe every love is beautiful and unique, so I strive to really get to know my couples to be able to capture them as such . Building a connection with you allows me to be able to photograph you as you are. Whether that's having a pizza picnic in a park, watching the sunrise from a mountain side, or taking a stroll down the beach. I am always here for it! We will laugh together and when you say your vows, I will most definitely be shedding tears with you! I believe in your experience above all else.
I can't wait to connect with you and hear about everything you are dreaming up for your wedding!
