capturing a fleeting moment, a moment never to appear again, when the Stars Align and the magic happens. For 20 years, it has been my great honor to be a part of the most intimate moments of a couple's beginnings. Creating a visual record; a slice of life and touchstones of love to be cherished and passed on. My style is comfortable and relaxed for you, as I work steadily, sensing when that moment is about to happen. I have the rare ability to personally connect with people, resulting in emotive and enduring images with a fresh perspective for each new and different couple. I'm a hopeless romantic. "I love catching those little things that make one person special to the other".
