Fine art wedding photography

A glimpse of the girl behind the lens. I am a natural light wedding and portrait photographer and specialize in fine art wedding photography. I studied photography at the Art Institute of Philadelphia and after receiving my Bachelors degree I worked as an Art Buyer. I first started pursuing wedding photography in 2007 and am forever grateful that I am able to have a full time wedding photography business. I love shooting film and it has changed my business in so many positive ways. I live in West Chester, PA but also love traveling for destination weddings.  When I’m not photographing a wedding you can find me cuddling my two puppies Riley and Penny. 2016-04-20_0001 2016-04-20_0011 2016-04-20_0003

A wedding is one of the most important days of your life, and for me to be in your world on that day is an honor. My images combine romance, whimsy, and warmth while capturing genuine human emotion. It is with these raw, unrehearsed emotions that I bring you back to that exact moment in time for years to come. Every  wedding is special and I want the moments I capture to be treasured by you as much as they are treasured by me.

There is no such thing as a typical day. That’s what I love about being a fine art wedding photographer. I am so lucky I get to be creative on a regular basis. One of my favorite things to do is connect with my clients on the styling and bringing together the visual details of there wedding day. Whether it’s working on a wedding color palette together or brainstorming portrait locations I love being available to my clients to provide a wonderful experience.
