Questions and Answers

What three words describe your work?

Fresh. Creative. Romantic.

Why should someone hire you?

Because I'm passionate about my work, and I care about each of my couples. My approach to every wedding is to tell your story in a fun, fresh way that reflects your unique personality and style. I work with a sense of wonder, discreetly capturing all the real, unscripted, unforgettable moments. I also know that details matter—your dress, shoes, flowers, jewelry, friends, family etc. I get that, and provide a complete documentation of your wedding day.

What's the best advice you give to a couple when planning their wedding?

Once you're done planning and everything is set, trust your vendors and just enjoy your wedding day. Relax and have fun, I'll make you look good!
