I got my first camera while I was in elementary school. It was a pink Kodak 110mm camera that used flash cubes, which I thought were the coolest thing ever. On rainy days my parents would set up the slide projector and we would have slide shows featuring our family vacations. My mom was good at keeping photo albums and I loved to look at the ones she made when she was in her late 20’s. Occasionally, when I have nothing to do or need some inspiration I dig them out and look at all the memories captured.
It wasn’t until high school that taking photographs soon turned into a passion. My grandmother gave me her 35mm Yashica camera to use in a high school photography class, which is now a part of my vintage camera collection. She was my inspiration, my muse, and was an artist herself. My passion for photography led me to get my BFA in photography from Tyler School of Art. My photography and artwork has been exhibited around the Buck's County area, and recognized by Adobe in 2007 for a Design Achievement Award. My love for photography and art is constantly growing.
I love getting to know my clients and building a friendship with them, rather then just being their wedding photographer. When I’m not photographing a wedding or editing client photographs I work on my own photography, check out local art galleries and go on mini day trips to find new locations to shoot.
In July 2009, I photographed my first wedding and quickly fell in love with capturing two people on one of the most beautiful days of their lives. When photographing weddings, portraits, engagement session I love to bring a creative, fun, friendly, and fine art photography style. I love to pay extra attention to the details of your day and create images that are unique and one of a kind. And yes, I do tend to cry during the father daughter dance! I am currently located in Perkasie and would love to meet with you over coffee and chat about how I can capture your memories!
Thank you so much for stopping by! Feel free to check out my photos, and learn a little more about me.
Things I love:

"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever...it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything."
