Introvert and extrovert, I’m definitely both. I’m adventurous and curious. I started in front of the camera and now spend my time behind it. I’m a fluent Spanish speaker and dabbler in others. I love to travel the world but hate to fly. I love food, design, art and architecture. I love a good project, and even installed my own hardwood floors. I’m not afraid to tackle a challenge. I love hiking and the outdoors. I spend most of my free time outside of weddings in the garden. I’m the proud mother to three boys, and the proud wife to Patrick, my youth sweetheart and main squeeze for 18 years now. Olivia is our little girl Labradoodle and the best hiking buddy. I’m based out of the Fredericksburg, Virginia area and shoot often in and around Washington, Richmond, Charlottesville and everywhere in between.
How I Approach Weddings
I live for new experiences and meeting new people. I love to immerse myself into a new culture, getting to know what those people are all about. I approach weddings the same way. Each weekend, a new experience awaits and appeases my fickle nature. The unpredictability of weddings and the anticipation of a moment to come are what I live for.
I’m a hybrid photographer, so I shoot both digital and film photography. In my eyes, some moments were just meant for film while digital enables me to capture the split second with accuracy. My goal is to document you and your families in a genuine way, but I also love to get a beautifully set up portrait and feel that my strength lies also being able to do both and blend them naturally. Each wedding is different, but the element that remains the same is that there is always a story to tell. I work great in stressful environments and feel like the fast paces timelines of weddings is where I excel.
I’ve been shooting weddings for almost 10 years now and have learned a thing or two about what my clients are looking for in their wedding photography. My wedding packages start at $2600. Albums are offered a la carte. Images are delivered via online password protected gallery and you’ll receive a beautiful hand made box with prints and a thumb drive, because what are photos if we don’t actually print them?! I love elopements and backyard weddings too! Please inquire for custom quotes for elopements and destination weddings. I’m passport ready and always willing to travel!
Portrait sessions, including Boudoir are $500 and include a private password protected gallery.
