Being in front of the camera is weird. I'm all about creating a relaxed atmosphere, so every moment
feels like a fun date with your boo thang.
Expect laughter, inside jokes, and me breaking it down on the dance floor with you – because it's not just about the photos; it's about the incredible memories we'll make together.
As a published Connecticut photographer (most recently in Green Wedding Shoes), I'll take you from those initial feelings of awkwardness to feeling confident and connected to your loved one every. dang. time.
From belly laughs to the quiet stolen glances between you two, I'm here to make sure you have stunning images that tell your story for generations to come.
We have three small and wild humans that call me mama. When I'm not with clients, you can find my homebody self baking sourdough, working on the latest homeschool project, having kitchen dance parties while listening to 2000s pop punk and emo hits, or volunteering at my church.
I didn't grow up with a camera in my hands like other photographers might have, but photos were always important to me. Not because I had a ton, but because there were never enough. I don't have a bunch of photos of my parents' childhood. I can recall one picture of my grandma on her wedding day. There just aren't enough photos.
Unfortunately, I didn't realize the deep importance of photos until it was too late. I have a bunch of silly selfies with the people that mean the most to me, some of them have since passed on. But if I'm being honest, my husband and I didn't even have a professional wedding photographer at our wedding.
I don’t have:
Wedding photos that I cherish.
Beautiful memories of the day I got married.
Images that take me back to being young and in love.
Photos from that day of people that made an impact in our lives and are no longer here.
I had a friend who graciously grabbed some snapshots for us at our wedding, but they’re not displayed in my home. In fact, I’m not even sure where the album is.
We let our wedding be dictated by other people, and it was a day that should’ve felt exciting as we started our new life together, but it felt (and still feels) more somber than it does sweet.
I love my husband. I love the life we’ve built together. But I hate our wedding day.
I’m passionate about couples preserving their memories on their terms with the finite time we have here on earth. Life is for making moments, big and small, last forever.
My gift to you is making you feel perpetually connected to the irreplaceable memories that matter most.
It's never about the photo, but what the photo holds tight for you.
