What motivates you to do what you do?
My personal relationships mean the most to me, and I know we all want to feel loved and make deeper connections with the people around us. Photography seems to be a constant in my life since I was born, and I will always cherish my family photos and all of the home videos that my parents filmed. I the small and big moments of a wedding day are so precious and sentimental, and I take a lot of pride in knowing that the photos will be shared for generations.
What is a favourite service that you offer and why?
International wedding photography. I absolutely love to travel and experience different cultures all over the world. I think destination weddings are great way for couples to provide an experience for their guests, and it’s a great way for me to really dive deep into their interpersonal relationships.

What is your most memorable career moment?
I was lucky enough to book a session in Lake Como, Italy. We rented a boat and spent a beautiful morning cruising around the lake while taking photos, popping champagne and listening to Frank Sinatra. I felt like I was in a movie!
What inspires you?
Fashion and music. Fun style and a killer playlist is my love language.
What is your advice to couples getting married?
Be yourself and do what feels like YOU. Don’t listen to trends. Your best wedding day will happen when you feel like you are in your element. Also, have fun with your style! It’s a special day, so why not wear something you have always wanted to wear? Be bold.
What would you like couples to know about you?
My approach to photographing couples is to catch you being your authentic selves. I love being a fly on the wall. I’m always willing to pose couples, but it’s so much fun to just feel like I’m getting a peek into your simple, but special life with each other.
