I am always available for your questions, concerns, and ideas. In many of my client’s testimonials, I am applauded for my ability to be there for them. I’ve even had brides call me to vent from the stress and pressure of planning a wedding!


Something you can count on from me is my expertise and professionalism. I have been doing photography for 10 years, and just recently in 2014, decided to start a business. I take great care to evaluate every individual photograph I take. These are not pictures to me.

This is something that is very near and dear to my heart. I analyze each individual image for quality, lighting, artistry, and editing. Each INDIVIDUAL image gets examined meticulously.
