A New England wedding & portrait photographer


I've had the honor of working at some of the most picturesque locations New England has to offer and it is truly a privilege. From stunning farms and vineyards, to breathtaking mansions - I'm in awe of their tranquil beauty! Every venue speaks its own language through stories that are kept hidden within its walls. There's something enchanting about being nestled outdoors between trees while admiring nature; it definitely strikes a chord with me!

Over a decade ago, I started my journey capturing precious moments through the lens of a camera. I've had the privilege of photographing babies and families - teaching me how to approach each moment with patience and calm. My first wedding was like love at first sight - that inspired an unending passion for storytelling through photos. It's why today, as couples take their vows in front of family & friends - I'm so dedicated to documenting every detail; from the raw emotion that tugs at your heartstrings; little things which only make weddings so special. Nowadays, with each couple I have shot over time, their story has grown and weaved it's own unique path - from vowing togetherness till 'death do us part' to blossoming into full-fledged loving parents!

As a mother of two beautiful children, I treasure each moment we spend together. Each day with them is packed full of joy and laughter - something that's reflected in the prints hanging on our walls! Every time one catches my eye, it brings me back to an amazing memory from when I captured it. This experience drives me as photographer: My mission is for all clients to feel those same feelings whenever they look at their photos; inspiring nostalgia so cherished moments can be enjoyed over and over again!

Just a few things I love most!

Favorite place to travel:

Unlike most people who prefer to travel somewhere warm, I will always say YES to a trip to Iceland. There is something about the beautiful waterfalls, black sand beaches and ever changing landscape that will forever hold a special place in my heart. I really love the culture and the unique cuisine, and the fact you can stand in two continents at the same time. Also, what could be cooler than holding a real life glacier in your own two hands?

Most memorable moment with my kids:

Christmas 2022 vacation in Iceland... The trip of a lifetime! We spent our favorite holiday week touring 2 lagoons, the golden circle and on Christmas day we saw the magical Northern Lights!

Favorite Venue:

The Rosecliff mansion located in Newport, RI evokes childhood memories of the ultimate princess dream wedding. It was an honor to photograph a wedding at such a stunningly beautiful venue. The sheer grandeur and opulence of the architecture and decorative arts held within this Gilded Age treasure took my breath away with each click of my camera. All of this and the exquisite landscape design with its sweeping coastal views will bring you back in time to a romantic and bygone era.

Favorite Starbucks Latte:

Iced Grande blonde latte
2 pumps SF vanilla syrup
2 pumps white mocha sauce
Vanilla & Cinnamon powder sweet cold foam
*I'm always up for coffee dates!
