As a wedding and engagement photographer, I have the honor and privilege of documenting one of the most important days of a person’s life. My goal is to capture the unscripted moments, fleeting glances, bursts of laughter, and joyful tears that you’ll want to relive again and again. I strive to create images that are candid, emotional, and timeless, and am a proud member of the Wedding Photojournalist Association.

I primarily photograph weddings in D.C., Virginia, and Maryland (where I live with my wonderful husband, two children, and two beautiful Siamese cats). When not photographing weddings, I enjoy reading books by Alexander McCall Smith, cooking Mexican food, doing crossword puzzles with my husband, playing poker, and listening to/watching Broadway musicals.
