To be invited into a very important day and document my clients’ wedding stories is a sacred and challenging endeavor. After photographing more than 75 weddings over 7 years, weddings to me are the perfect place for me to exercise my eyes as a creative. I thrive using my creative problem solving skills on wedding days, to combat ever-changing light and moving-subjects. It’s a thrill and I always have to pinch myself to remind me that I get to do this!

Don’t let your photos collect dust on a hard drive. We consume most of our content from screens and for many that experience is too fast. Printed on the best papers and curated for its uniqueness, these heirloom photo albums create a physical experience for reliving your memories.
Each book is archival quality, meaning this isn’t the kind of quality you get from other photo books. Printed on archival papers and using acidic-free inks, each book is guaranteed to last for centuries.

As soon as my work speaks to you. Most my couples book me 9-14 months out from their wedding date.
I do book on a first come, first served basis. It is quite common for couples to inquire, discover I have another inquiry for their date, and then book me proper within 24 hours. I do my best to keep all parties notified, but I do encourage booking as soon as you are able.
To confirm booking, I require a signed contract & a non-refundable deposit. 50% of the total is due at booking, and the remaining balance is due 30 days before your wedding. I do accept bookings on a first-come first-served basis.
Booking is all handled online, with my portal accepting Credit/Debit Cards and ACA Bank Transfers.
My goal is to step into your day and photograph what happens. With a keen focus on portraiture, my style is photojournalist and documentary. I aim to find beautiful and unique ways to tell your unique story.
I am unobtrusive through most of the day, outside of your formal portraits. I observe what I see with my camera, and aim to keep things as are. You won’t find me interrupting genuine moments to reposition people.

Don’t let your images collect dust on a hard drive. Invest in a professional heirloom album.
My albums are sourced with longevity in mind. Heirloom Albums are a beautiful, physical experience for you and future generations to treasure.
Wedding days are chaotic, emotional, and fast-paced. I’m a portrait artist who is forever drawn to photographing people. What stage could be grander?
But in all honesty, I do this because it brings me great happiness to use my creative problem solving to create such beauty and memory for my couples. Documenting memories, while solving the logistics of light releases so many happy chemicals in my head.
Not with me you don’t. I take all the fun and candid photos from large to small weddings and also do both sets of getting ready photos. All of the moments, all day long.
If the wedding requires two-photographers due to limitations or requests, then I will provide one on a case-by-base basis.
