On your wedding day I want you to feel as if I am a part of your wedding as another bridesmaid, ready to serve you and be your personal hype girl! I believe that emotions and details are the moments worth remembering; from the elegant getting ready moments, the first look with your best friend and the teary-eyed dance with your dad - every heartfelt moment should be captured for you to cherish it for a lifetime. Your love story is beautifully unique in its own way and it deserves to be celebrated in a way that leaves you speechless and confident! I strive for making each one of you comfortable enough to know that I have your back in whatever situation. As your photographer and friend, I strive to give you a stressless and enjoyable experience that is built to serve you well and it is an absolute honor to be a part of your special day!

for authentic, joyful, couples in love
