On stage I found exhilaration in bringing stories of human experience to life for an audience. On wedding days I find the act of preserving a story as it unfolds in front of me just as exhilarating. Although my medium of expression has changed, story-telling is still at the root of what I do and it is still the thing that brings me the most joy and sense of purpose. My dance background combined with my empathetic nature allows me to effortlessly anticipate movement and moments of genuine connection throughout wedding day.
As the daughter of two musicians, art was celebrated daily in our home. I followed my passion for the arts to Shenandoah Conservatory where I graduated with a B.F.A. in Dance Performance. I originally took up photography in college to document the dance pieces I created, but once I picked up the camera, I knew it would be part of my life somehow. It is rare that someone finds even one passion in their lifetime and I feel so fortunate to have known two.

I recognize that each couple has varying levels of comfort in front of the camera. No matter how much direction you and your fiancé require, we always incorporate movement into our work.
