I love to travel and meet my clients pretty much anywhere they want me to. I work closely with my clients to provide photographs that are dramatic, powerful, emotional and cinematic. I am a story teller and because my work is so personal, dedication to my clients is paramount. We build a close relationship throughout the build up to the wedding or event and remain close for years after.
In 2014 I was so thrilled to be named one of the 50 top wedding photographers in the United States which still makes me jittery! My work has also won multiple award on Fearless Photographers in the United States as well as ISPWP. And my images have also been featured on The Lovely Find, Munaluchi Bride, Love Wed Bliss, Two Delighted, and Glamour and Grace to name a few.
