Artist Statement

    I adore the way that analogue film captures light and I shoot both film and digital media because I believe that each has a unique and beautiful way of documenting a wedding day. When I see the potential for a stunning moment, I will give direction. Otherwise I want to be soft and unobtrusive so that you can enjoy your day. Your wedding day is about you celebrating your love for each other. My luminous style comes from an obsession with light.  This pairs perfectly with outdoor celebrations and naturally lit surroundings.

   From my earliest memories I’ve loved the pictures in books – drawings of characters in fairy tales, etchings of scenes in classic novels. These romantic images continue to inspire me as I travel the world telling true-life love stories through photographs.

     While I’m thrilled every time my work is featured on a blog or in print, nothing is sweeter than hearing how much my clients love their images.  I feel deeply honored every time I pick up my camera and enter the world of a wedding.

    I’m currently based in Boston but I love to travel and have an up-t0-date passport.
