EVERYTHING YOU'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR
I see our time together as an opportunity to produce something extraordinary and tailored to your unique story. Something beloved that will be shared with your future generations. Which is why the experience I give you is completely tailored to what you want.
Together, we'll connect and establish exactly what that is, from the beginning. In turn, I'll create images that are profound, intimate and meaningful to you.
I respectfully understand when to be invisible, and when to provide direction. With discretion, I constantly seek to photograph the subtlest, most meaningful gestures and conduct myself with the highest level of professionalism.
Have all your moments covered. From expressive family formals, to romantic newlywed portraits, to decisive moment candids and visionary decor details, I will bring my passion, creativity and non-stop enthusiasm to document it all.
I capture all your most loved people. I make it a point to focus my lens on your family & closest friends. So, you not only have stunning images of your love, but of the important people that love you too.
As a former art historian and 17th - 19th Century painting specialist, my trained eye will capture organic, in between moments with refined composition & elegance. You can stay immersed in the experience of your wedding weekend while I capture your story in an authentically beautiful way.
Fall in love with your photos. I skillfully capture your unique narrative from a fresh perspective. Anticipating expression with an eye for elegant composition and light. My style is a blend of photojournalistic honesty and artistic sophistication.
Feel fully cared for. By committing to a limited number of weddings each year, I'll be dedicated to you. You can expect warm, prompt, reliable responses, and a genuine will to guide and support you.
Rest assured your day will be captured with high quality and from multiple angles. With every wedding I have a lighting assistant and second photographer to ensure the full story is preserved properly.
Feel confident knowing I'll find the best spots to capture you beautifully. I always spend hours at your venue scouting the most beautiful areas to photograph your day.
Relax knowing I can handle anything that comes our way. I'm always prepared for all the weather scenarios with multiple backup plans, and we'll take any "photo gifts" as I call them, that come our way.
Take me anywhere your heart takes you. I speak both Spanish and French "almost" fluently and whether you're planning an outdoor estate wedding, a week-long wedding overseas, or eloping to Paris, my bags are always packed
I can’t wait to learn more about you and what you envision for your day. We’ll schedule a call to discuss.
From there I’ll send over a custom proposal tailored to your every need. Secure the date with a contract & deposit.
Feel confident knowing all the important details will be take care of in advance. With a few touch points over the course of the year, we’ll make sure everything is set.
Get excited knowing you’ll be able to soak up every moment with the ones you love most. Relax and enjoy while I capture it all beautifully.
