I believe a wedding is a celebration of life and love. It is a complex event filled with opportunities to photograph all aspects of life and embrace love as its best.

The purpose of my photography is to capture the genuine feelings that the bride, groom and their guests experience at a wedding. I open the window back to the wedding day, so they can again smell the bouquet, touch the wedding dress,…
