about my work

Why Photography?

Photography is about capturing the magic of real moments. The value we hold for things and people becomes more meaningful as years pass. I feel like I have found a way to freeze time so as to never forget the passion for the moments we live. 

I studied photography and psychology through undergrad and graduate school at Fordham and Columbia in New York. Over the years, I've come to realize that the key to my approach is actually psychology. My combination of technical skill, ability to anticipate emotion and behavior, and my ability to connect deeply with my clients defines my work. 

 

I began shooting film on my Dad's 35mm camera in 1998. Instantaneously, I fell in love with the magic of prints, and to this day am a lover and advocate of printed work. I offer products to satisfy both the heirloom and digital enthusiasts. 

I shot my first wedding in 2009 at a Long Island light house and was immediately hooked. I still burn with excitement as each and every event and session draws near!

Your photographer is the vendor that you spend the most time with- find someone you connect with! I work to establish a relationship of trust and comfort from the start and work with clients whom I believe I am a good match for in my approach and style. My work with my clients is very personalized and for this reason, I limit my monthly bookings to allow for the individualized attention that makes what I do so fulfilling. 

When I am not shooting weddings, I enjoy film photography, lifestyle family and couple sessions, intimate events, commercial work and landscape photography. 

Experiencing wedding planning for myself truly allows me to relate to the stresses and joys my couples experience on their wedding journey. Having an understanding of the time and care planning a wedding entails makes me love even more the moments and details that make your wedding distinctively you. 

I am honored to have received The Knot & Weddingwire's Best of Weddings Award for 2016 & 2017. 

A LITTLE About Me

Photo by Catherine Rhodes

In 2014 I married my other half and creative soulmate, Alex. Alex and I met at a Yellowcard concert in 2002 and the years to follow have been filled with music, art, adventure, and food.

Being an artist himself, he has always supported my creative pursuits and has been able to tolerate the demands of a creative work schedule. We have two "fur children", a fluffy little papillion and an adopted tortoiseshell cat who has taken charge of our home. This Autumn 2017, we will welcome a baby girl into our lives!
