who am I

When I started my business in college I never knew it would bring me to where I am now.  I love not only capturing the joy and happiness a couple experiences on their wedding day, but also meeting those couples and forming relationships!  Yes, I'm a wedding photographer... but I truly value the sanctity of marriage and advocating for my couples and their relationships leading up to the wedding day. 

Marriage, is a beautiful thing.

Jersey born and raised, I love pizza, my fur-babies, my fiancé, making people laugh and I have a small weakness for a really good cupcake!

Not in a crazy cat lady way! I grew up with dogs but somehow ended up with two cats. They're cool, they're different and they know how to sit and speak on command - just like dogs. ;-)

I am engaged!

Meet the newest family member, Bo! He's a lab mix and loves to run, is highly motivated by food and loves socks. You'll see him frequently on my Instagram stories. :)

I love nothing more than getting the chance to connect with clients face-to-face. So if we are able to, let's get together for some good ol' fashioned fun (pizza, anyone?) & if we are too far apart, let's let the interwebs connect us. 
Here's what I've have been up to ...
