I love being surrounded by joyful people and moments.
I see the world in screaming color.
I’m always looking for dramatic light and, more importantly, genuine laughter and love.
I’m a wedding photographer who used to be a divorce attorney. No, really. I was absolutely miserable in my legal career and missed photography (I’d graduated with a degree in photojournalism before going to law school), so I started photographing friends’ weddings and networking in the wedding industry on the weekends. A few years later I was able to take my creative side hustle full time, so I said goodbye to the law and haven’t looked back since. There’s a lot more to the story than that, but it’s better told over drinks!
