WHY I love WHAT I do
I've been photographing weddings, families, and more since the summer of 2015, but to be quite honest, I never saw myself taking my business this far until I realized how genuinely happy it made me compared to the full time research job I had after graduating from Mount St. Mary's University with a Biology degree in 2020. I absolutely love the joy that creativity gives me, the wonderful people I get to meet, and the amazing time I have celebrating some of life's greatest moments with you.
On your wedding day, you won't just find me behind the camera. I will also be there fixing your veil, laughing with you and your loved ones as if I've known you my whole life, and shedding many happy tears as you say "I do" to the love of your life. Nothing makes me happier than seeing the pure joy on couples' faces on their wedding day! During your portrait session, I will laugh with you and happily listen as you tell stories about your loved ones.
You can always find me wiping away tears and sharing in the laughter when your loved ones give toasts at your wedding. I love hearing the stories, the jokes, and the sincere love that radiates in these moments. The union of the couple is obviously the most important part of a wedding, but the love shared between family and friends in celebration of that union is remarkable.
First Looks & Letter Readings
Whether it's a first look between the couple, a bride and her father, or a big bridal party reveal, this moment is so special every time. I love helping to plan the perfect first look, but when it comes down to it, they're always just so eager to see one another that nothing else matters. Not sure if you want to share a first look? First touches and private letter readings are also super special and definitely build up the excitement even more.
Don't get me wrong, I love all of the fun in wedding party portraits as well! But one of my favorite moments is after the ceremony when I get to say "now hold your wife's hand" or "look into your husband's eyes" and the newlyweds look at one another as they realize they are finally married! I love being able to capture the pure love and excitement in these private moments.
Don't ever think that all of that planning was for nothing! Of course the most important part of a wedding is the marriage, love, and celebration, but the details make it extra beautiful and they are the perfect way to share in the interests of the bride and groom. From the rings to the flowers to the deserts... I've seen so many creative touches that make each wedding so unique.
