Although I grew up in New Jersey, Cleveland is where I now call home. I’ve lived in four states, including Hawaii, and love to travel as much as my bank account will allow. I’m a big advocate for staying up past my bedtime. I love to sip lattes while staring out a coffee shop window. I quote The Office way too often and I can honestly never have enough ice cream.
When I’m not documenting love stories you can typically find me hiking in CVNP, drinking an IPA at a local brewery or binge-watching The Office from my couch surrounded by my husband and furbabies.
And if it’s a really good day, all of the above.

I've always loved animals and can't imagine ever not having at least one as a part of our family.
We're 100% the kind of couple that has spontaneous dance parties in the kitchen.
Being able to tell a couples love story lights me up in a way I never thought possible. My love affair with photography started long ago but it was truly transformed the moment I photographed my first couple. Now, over six year later, I have mastered the delicate balance of anticipating and capturing the magic of those once-in-a-lifetime moments. The simply authentic ones that can never be recreated.
It’s so important to me to capture your genuine moments and emotions with intent and purpose; tangible memories you will have long after your wedding day is over.
There's a really good chance that if you look at me on a wedding day, I will have the biggest smile plastered across my face. This is because I love witnessing and documenting couples stories. It's such an honor to be invited to one of the most special days in a couples relationship. Whatever your story includes, I’m here for it. Because your love is incredible and deserves to be documented, exactly as it is….
Working with a limited number of couples each year allows for a personal and approachable experience. I believe in kind-hearted communication, transparency and approachability with your vision and values. This means I truly love getting to know my couples on a personal level and becoming friends from that very first email.
Meaningful photos come from meaningful relationships. I want my couples to be able to relax and be fully present in each and every moment, knowing that I am able to create my best work when there is complete trust in my relationships. With hundreds of wedding photographed, and all the details meticulously planned, my couples have complete trust I will preserve their story and bring their vision to life.
