I am so happy you’re here
I am a storyteller, I tell the stories of my couples and their love, I document the moments, the people, the places, the things that make up the sum of your entire story. I’ve always been fascinated by movies and by books and the overarching story they’re able to tell through all the sums of the little parts.
I love to make best friends with my clients, and to give all of myself to document their special days. I live with my grey kitty Thunder in Portland, Maine, often marathoning Harry Potter, exploring this gorgeous world of ours or digging into the latest fantasy books. I’m addicted to coffee, to video games, and to those glorious afternoon naps. I hit the snooze button too many times, and obsess almost daily over Van Gogh.
You bring me your crazy amazing, wild love, and I’ll bring my camera and do the rest.
I want to document the big moments, the small moments, and all the messy in between moments that make up your entire love story. I want to laugh until we’re crying, I want to be there for the most exciting day of your life and passionately tell the story of how hard your hearts beat for one another.
I want you to look back on your photos and smile and remember the butterflies you felt in that moment, I want you to hold in your hands the memories of one of the best days of your life, with the one person you’ve chosen to join your soul with. I believe love is one of the most authentically beautiful things in the world, and I want the experience of looking at your photos to feel like embracing your lover all over again.
I’ll be a mixture of in the shadows and right beside you. Some points during the day I’ll be more direct, but mostly I’ll step back to capture the moments unfolding. I want to make certain we click, and I want to feel more like a friend than just your photographer. It’s not a responsibility taken lightly, and by the middle of most days I’m crying along with my couples at a speech, or dancing right along with you on that dance floor.
If adventure speaks to you, and taking advantage of this incredible day to create some of the best memories you’ll ever have is high on your priority list, we’ll get along just fine.

I believe that my best work comes from connections with my couples, I want to grab a drink with you, I want to get to know you, I want to drive to your engagement session spot together and really learn about one another. My goal is to become friends with my couples, and not to just serve my “clients”.
This means you’ll be more comfortable with me behind the camera, this means you won’t be afraid to ugly laugh and joke and be yourselves with me, this means we’ll get you your best possible photos of who you two really are, not just the perfectly posed unrealistic photos.
Let’s tell the story of your rad love.
