My most important job as your photographer is to tell the story of your wedding day while making you and your family and friends comfortable.
I believe the more comfortable you are, the better your pictures will be.
My typical client loves their family + friends over anything. Always, always. They value time spent together, and are able to appreciate the quieter moments in their relationships, that strung together, share a story of deep love.
They appreciate beautiful photography, art and design. Someone who lets me do what I do best, and trusts my many years of experience in the industry. Whether you are the most camera-shy person or the biggest ham, there is no cookie-cutter approach to every client.
I will get you comfortable in a way that is best for you.
As a Queer Mexican-American woman, I pride myself on being a welcoming + inclusive photographer + human being and embrace everyone. I am so happy you are here to view my work, stay as long as you’d like and please feel free to leave a comment or share any posts!

Last week I attended my ninth Engage! Luxury Business Summit conference at The Cloister on Sea Island, Georgia. I am what we refer to as a Nine Baller, and I proudly wore those nine balls around my neck until I broke my name tag with my (not so) smooth dance moves and they all […]

Mallory + Wes’ wedding at the Tokeneke Club in Darien, CT with the ever-amazing Amy Champagne Events was one for the books! Not only was it THE hottest day, like ever, but it was also the most beautiful. The day was filled with so much laughing (Wes and his groomsmen were like a pack of […]

When I first got into weddings that is all I wanted to focus on, and quite frankly it’s all I was able to handle at the time! I had upwards of 40 wedding clients a year, and for a boutique studio that was, quite frankly, way too much. I updated my approach to my business, […]
This summer I had the honor of being asked to document a field to vase dinner tour at my good friend David Beahm’s personal home, Thistle Dew Farm in PA. I had visited there a few weekends before and if I could describe heaven visually, this would be on my map of heaven. Right in […]

The Webb Barn wedding in Wethersfield CT of Stephanie and Mike was perfect. When I met Stephanie and Mike at my studio I knew instantly that we were going to make a great team! They are so open and in love and able to just be themselves with me, I knew it would be […]
This July I had the honor of photographing my cousin Stephanie + Greg’s wedding in Cancun, Mexico. It was so much fun to bring my family there with me, and to see them partake in the festivities that, in my normal day to day world, is considered ‘work.’ It was a welcome break from reality […]
