How would you describe your style?
My eye for beauty reaches across the spectrum of stylish affairs to the simple and mundane moments, captured through my unique point of view. I approach a wedding day with a documentary sensibility limiting my interference in the day and events and instead, capture the honest moments as they unfold. My editorial experience comes into play in order to help guide my couples and create timeless imagery with an artful perspective.
