For as long as I can remember, I've always gravitated towards love and beauty. I curate art that unfolds like a story, has depth and exudes romance. My photographic approach with is soulful and tender, candid yet captivating. I'm a visual story teller capturing your most magical and raw moments. I love to create beautiful wedding day photos that are rich in detail and unique to each of our couples. Documenting your love story in the most beautiful, romantic and artistic manner so you may relive even the smallest moments again and again.
I'm a modern romantic, I love fiercely and have a profound wanderlust spirit. I'm a self described Mojito (maker) expert and can never say no to afternoon of laughter and Mimosa's with friends. I was born and raised in Southeastern Canada, lived and travelled abroad and now call Virginia home with my husband, our three children and our sweet rescue dog, Rugby.
Our artwork has been featured in Vogue Italia, the iconic Louvre Gallery in Paris, France, Time Square and many of the leading wedding publications including The Knot, Vow Bride and the Carolina's magazine.
