Your wedding day is one that you’ll remember for the rest of your life. It will also be a swirl of emotions, loved ones, and little moments that pass by so fast. You have only one chance to grab hold of these memories before time steals them away. When you do, you get the incredible gift of reliving those memories all over again and sharing them with generations to come.
If you’re looking for a New England wedding photographer who will melt into the background while still managing to capture all the best candid moments—I’m your girl. I’ll admit I also have a special affinity for photographing nerds like me—people who are quirky, nontraditional, and mayyybe even a little hesitant about being photographed (“I hate being the center of attention and what do I do with my hands?!”).
No matter how nervous you are about being in front of the lens, I’ll make sure you have fun and come away with images you will treasure forever.
With a degree in photography and experience shooting weddings since 2009, I’ve found the right mix of photojournalism and lifestyle photography is magical. This style allows me to go beyond the typical shots and capture the entire story of the day, the love you have for one another, and the friends and family surrounding you.
Choosing a photographer you like as a person is so important. The professional you choose will be a part of your big day. If you need me to diffuse some family drama, calm some nerves, dry off a bouquet, or pin a boutonniere or two, I’m there. You can count on me to be organized and flexible, always keeping the focus on your love, not the photoshoot.

What inspired you to become a wedding photographer?
The classic “I’ve had a camera in my hand since I was a kid” is totally accurate for me. Growing up I loved photographing my family, looking at photographs from years past, and eventually having my friends model for me in high school. I took a dark room photography class in my junior and senior years of high school and I loved the whole process, from shooting, to developing and enlarging, and getting the final print. Two of my cousins were married around that time and I brought my first digital camera along to both weddings; one was at Union Station in Worcester, MA (which I have since photographed at!) and another was in Sedona, Arizona. I was completely hooked after that. Photographing weddings is such a joyous event and truly an honor to be apart of every single one I get to photograph.
How do you ensure that your clients feel comfortable and relaxed during the photo shoot?
I’m kind of a goofy lady, and I feel, and have been told, that helps my clients relax. We are all there just to document someones love story- nothing needs to be uncomfortable or scary about that. 🙂
What is your favorite part of the wedding day and why?
The first time the couple is seeing one another- whether it’s during a first look or at the ceremony, there is ALWAYS a sense of calm that comes over both partners. I love seeing love in action, and to me, that is such a palpable moment. They are home.
