I was born and raised in Pittsburgh and have no plans to leave, outside of traveling. I am 1 of 3 daughters, a girlfriend to Dave, and an Aunt to two amazing kiddos. Gift giving and overly expressive texts are my love language, and I am addicted to gum. I have no idea what Enneagram I am because I can't remember, but I feel like I fit into multiple groups. I enjoy "me time" more than most, but you won't find me hiding in the corner at a social gathering. In fact, I'm normally joining your guests on the dance floor while taking photos.
MY LAST MEAL WOULD INCLUDE PEANUT BUTTER
I HOST A BOOK CLUB ONCE A MONTH
(Yes, we do actually talk about the book - with wine)
MY FAVORITE PAST TIME IS MARSHALLS
MY MAIN CONCERN WHEN BUYING A HOUSE WAS BEING ABLE TO WALK TO GET COFFEE
I WANTED TO OWN A BRIDAL SALON "WHEN I GREW UP"
The world of weddings was waiting for me
NO MATTER THE PLACE; MY COFFEE ORDER IS SF HAZELNUT & OAT MILK
Experience over production
prompted over posed
I started photography because I love meeting new people and helping them relive days that make them happy, not to pay the bills. I don't just 'go through the motions' to get the Instagram perfect photo. It's important for me to be more than just a photographer. In addition to your friend, I want to be your best resource for all things wedding. I want to help you with locations, timelines, details to include, and help you decide if you should do a first look or not. I will not just take your payment and show up on your wedding day, I promise I will be your guide through it all.
My goal is to capture you just as you are, whether you're traditional or non-traditional, because your story is unique and shouldn't look like everyone else's. Every session is an experience unique to you. I want to know what you're all about and how we can best capture that. I want to photograph you in a location that feels like home to you or represents something about your story. The more I know about you - the more I can capture YOU instead of just a pretty picture.
I remember looking through photo albums and prints that belonged to my grandparents and parents, as my sisters and I grew up. There's something special about flipping through an album versus scrolling on your phone! One day photos will be all that we have to pass down - don't let these years pass by undocumented!
