Behind the Lens

meet the artist

I'm a hopeless romantic who finds great joy in creating and capturing connection and beauty wherever I go.

Hopeless romantic (and total Enneagram 3), lover of light,  travel, and the soft, glowing colors of sunset. 

If I'm not behind the camera chasing your love affair with each other, or my own with golden “light,” I'm making my own memories at home: either snuggling my cats, cooking with my husband, or researching our next travel destination (I've made romantic memories in 36 countries)! Every day, I fall more in love with late nights and lazy mornings (so invite me to brunch, not breakfast), big laughs, real conversations, and saying yes to things that bring me joy (like binge watching Friends, or eating a box of macarons). 

I have wonderful clients who deserve a photography experience they won’t forget. While they’re making their own romantic memories with my camera to capture it, I’m making lifetime friends during our sessions, happy hour dates, and even the occasional exchange of a box of macarons.

Overindulging in a box (or two) of macarons. Watching Friends over and over again. And really pretty shoes.

about you

Does this sound like you? Inquire with us.

Our clients are seekers of beauty, lovers of travel, with a taste for adventure and good food. 

You love getting lost on the streets of a new city and get excited for what you might discover (like a vintage shop, old book store, a little cafe with the best gelato). You love trying new restaurants and starting with a charcuterie board and a glass of vino. Part of your life's mission is to leave this world a better place than you found.
