I am a Pittsburgh native, though I did float around the U.S and beyond a bit – NYC to Central America to California – before setting roots back in Pittsburgh with my husband and 3 adorable kids.
Photography is my true passion. In the past 12 years I have specialized in wedding photography while nurturing my love for photojournalism as a newspaper freelancer. My perspective is so profoundly shaped by my photography training that I find myself seeing light and composition everywhere. In my free time I enjoy designing and creating jewelry, spending quality time with a glass of wine and a group of friends, and experimenting with some personal fine art photography projects (view here).
I incorporate a unique blend of documentary and fine art styles into my wedding work. My ultimate goal is to tell YOUR story, so on your day I will function more as a fly-on-the-wall than a director. I am competent with lighting formal group shots and will move through these as quickly as possible. But I also do invite you to set aside time to create natural portraits in beautiful, relaxed settings. Get to know me, relax around me, and help me figure out how to do this in a way that makes it the right experience for you.
Your day. Your story.
