The short version of my story is that I am a natural light enthusiast with a soft spot for fall weddings, the look on couples faces when they see each … other for the first time, cloudy skies and wedding ceremonies filled with personal touches that bring tears to my eyes. I love creating a bond with my clients, and I feel like that bond with my couples is so essential since I am an integral part of the precious moments that they will hold on to forever. The long version is that I started out in 2001 with a film camera and some black and white film, taking snapshots of friends and family, processing and printing my own film by hand. For the next 6 years, I took classes and built up my film portfolio, expanding into color film and portrait work, evolving with each roll of film. In 2007, I picked up my life and moved from the suburbs of Philadelphia to Pittsburgh and got my hands on my first digital camera. At that moment a whole new world opened up. I shut myself in the studio for two years and set my mind on fashion photography with dreams of my photographs gracing magazine covers and billboards. During my final year of college I was required to do a three month internship. I plastered ads on Craigslist and sent out mass e-mails to local photographers. And then I stumbled into a career I never knew I would have. I shot my first wedding in 2007 and it was a fiasco. I understood all the horror stories immediately, the stories of drunk brides and feuding families leaving wedding wreckage in their wake. I shot that wedding and never looked back. So when I began interning as a wedding photographer, I prepared myself for the worst. Instead, I was pleasantly surprised. It was amazing. It is fast paced, challenging, and filled with some of the most pleasant people I’ve ever had the pleasure of dealing with. No bridezillas or drunken bridal parties. I spent those three months absorbing all the knowledge I could. And here I am, years later, still in love with wedding photography, still learning and evolving. I took an internship with the idea that it was just a stepping stone and turned it into a career I am obsessed with. I’ve been internationally published, had work hung in several gallery shows and travelled as far as St Thomas, Jamaica and Arizona for weddings (but if you want me to photograph your backyard wedding that sounds just as amazing to me). While personality is a huge factor to me, what really matters is my work. I want you to be in love with my work, I want you to look at my images and think "That is exactly what I envision!" I show my favorite images on my website, but update my blog each time I shoot a wedding, I want you to have an accurate idea of what kind of images I will be providing you with. I’m always willing to travel for my clients and I like to meet my clients to make sure we click and have the same expectations. I want you to be comfortable with your choice and to walk out of our meeting feeling confident that I am the right photographer for you. Hide Bio Full Bio
