My Story

When I was thirteen, I was introduced to photography by an incredible, talented spirit. I was amazed at how she always captured the very essence of who she was photographing in such a small moment of time. Each and every photo held a story behind it. Many times she placed a camera in my hands and let me tag along so that I would have an opportunity to experience wedding photography. There were no guidelines or rules, just be creative and capture what I felt worthy in my own sight.

To this day, capturing a story is what continues to inspire me, while creating one-of-a-kind pieces of artwork out of life's most precious moments. I am so blessed to have such amazing opportunities to photograph the stories and establish relationships with the couples and families who are placed in my path.

I couldn't have said it better than my teenage idol:

"Sometimes I get to places just when God's ready to have somebody click the shutter".
~ Ansel Adams

I love people, and capturing the best of each unique couple. I would love to meet you both and photograph your wedding day story.

My Philosophy Your wedding photographs are memories to cherish and share. When you look back on them, they will help you remember all of the feelings and emotions present on that day. The joy and fufillment I receive in documenting those most precious moments of your wedding day is an honour.
The Experience I enjoy providing my clients with detailed care - creating an enjoyable, stress-free, and easy-going approach from our very first meeting. I'll be the one to carry your dress, coral family members, and know when you just need a moment to take it all in. More than anything, I want you to enjoy and celebrate every moment of your wedding day, while I focus on capturing the moments for you as they happen.
