You’ve planned out every detail of this day to reflect your love story and create a phenomenal experience for your guests . From the perfect shade of off-white peonies in the bouquets to that inside joke referenced in the name of the signature cocktails, I truly love all the little decisions that make your wedding unique to you – and most of all, I understand that while those details are meaningful, what is most essential is that magical something that is happening between you and your partner on your wedding day. I would never want your wedding to feel like a photoshoot but I deliver images that look as polished and timeless as one. My work reflects all of the care and curation that went into planning your celebration as well as the irreplaceable moments between the most important people in your lives who have all assembled to celebrate your love.
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 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 in the most authentic way possible. 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 but I also love the opportunity to flex my technical muscles by using off camera lighting to capture you and your guests dancing when the light is low.
I’m currently based just South of Boston but I love to travel and have an up-to-date passport. I’ve been a full time photographer since 2008 and have photographed over 150 weddings – each and every one was as unique and fabulous as the couple they were celebrating.
