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!

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 ...
