I cannot think of any other medium that so greatly encompasses preservation, appreciation, gratitude, and documentation the way that photography does.
Photographs have power. They can transport you to another time, they can conjure a once vivid memory after it fades, they can show you what love looks like and at the very least, they can record a moment or an image of something you never want to forget.
The magnitude of family photography is what interests me. Whether an engagement, a proposal, a wedding, a new baby, an immediate or extended family, what is happening right now is important and I want to record it for you. I strive to make images that are real, raw, emotive, artistic, classic and genuine and in a few years, or in many years, my hope is that they will be waiting for you when you want to recall the memories that you are making right now.
I earned my BFA in photography from the University of Delaware and I have been photographing weddings and families professionally for over 13 years in Philadelphia, New York, and surrounding areas. I've learned that it's not about being in the right place at the right time, it's about being open to everything that is happening around me. The magic is always in the details and in the small moments that could get overlooked.
My work has been recognized by Philadelphia Wedding Magazine, The Knot magazine, Lehigh Valley Style magazine, Style Me Pretty, and multiple online wedding resources. I am passionate about photographing your love story for you, for your family and for future generations to appreciate, and in doing it in such a way that the energy and love within your images can be felt for the rest of time.
