I love sauvignon blanc and summertime, and doubly so when paired together. I spent my childhood playing dress-up from a trunk of scarves my parents collected on travels to India. I still find great joy in playing with clothes, even as I pursue adventures.
I split my time between New York City, Chicago and my native rural home in southern Indiana. When I'm not honing my craft and taking care of my clients, you can find me sitting on a porch or a fire escape or exploring by foot, whether that means taking in my adopted home of New York City 100 blocks at a time or hiking a landscape new or familiar. My Fitbit reports that I almost always exceed 15,000 steps each day, but I struggle to squeeze in as much sleep as I know I ought to.
My photography style is intimate, joyful, classic and spontaneous. In addition to growing up in the industry, I have assisted and second shot for and received training and mentorship from more than 25 different professional photographers, mostly high-end pros in Chicago and New York, who have informed my technique, professionalism and artistic eye. I believe in knowing my clients well, which is part of why I make engagement shoots and planning meetings a priority in every client's experience. These are opportunities for us to all get to know each other, so the images I capture on wedding days are a reflection of not just my style, but my clients' true selves.
After more than 15 years of working in the wedding photography business, I still get a thrill before every wedding. My favorite parts of weddings are the gowns and the live bands, the cultural traditions and the palpable love and affection shared, not just between the couples, but also between the families and friends who gather at these celebrations.
My clients are couples of discerning taste with an appetite for adventure. They value experiences and relationships over possessions, but believe in investing in what's beautiful and filled with integrity.
