I have been a wedding photographer for the entirety of my career. I began photographing destination weddings in Florida, where I lived in Tallahassee until the summer of 2008. Upon moving to Brooklyn that summer, I began photographing weddings in Manhattan, Philadelphia, New Jersey, Connecticut, Washington D.C., the Jersey Shore, the Hamptons, and beyond.
If you are looking for a wedding photographer, I promise to take care of you with excellent customer service and beautiful wedding photography. I’ve photographed over eight hundred weddings, and have been so grateful to every client who has commissioned me to document their wedding day. Weddings are crazy, unpredictable, and incredibly fun. Helping my clients have the best day possible is hugely important to me, and if you hire me - well, you're in experienced, caring hands.
I’ve been honored with many awards cementing my place as one of the most sought-after wedding photographers in New York and Philadelphia. Some of my most treasured awards and honors include:

  • Two Grand Awards from the Wedding and Portrait Photographers International (WPPI) Annual 16x20 Print Competition

I have been a portrait photographer since I was in college. My love of photographing people led me to take my first darkroom photography class and has led me through every part of my career since. There are portraits at weddings, headshots are technically a special genre of photography, and everything else that I adore shooting revolves around the art of photographing people.
Portrait photography encompasses many genres. The portraits that I have been honored to have created over the years include:
  • Glamour-style modern portraits
  • Boudoir portraits
  • Bridal portraits
  • Maternity portraits
  • Family portraits
  • Senior portraits
Photographing women has been a great love of mine since I can remember. Creating portraits that make women feel and look beautiful is such a joy, and I have been so honored to meet and work with the incredible women who have visited my studio over the years. My portraits touch on glamour with a beautifully nuanced editorial edge. The modern portraits that I will create for you mark this incredible time in your life, whether you’re celebrating a birthday, or milestone, or just want to document your unique beauty at this moment, here and now.
Boudoir portraits have also been a part of my business since I began shooting weddings. Brides often reach out to me to document them before their wedding as a gift to their future spouse. It’s an extraordinary time to create portraits and it becomes an extraordinary gift for any newlywed to receive!
As a wedding photographer and portrait artist, I have always been drawn to beautifully editorial bridal portraits. Sometimes there is a great opportunity to create these portrait images on the wedding day, but often the days are so fast-paced that there is no time for a portrait session to focus on just bridal images. For that reason, many brides choose to come into the studio for a separate session to highlight this incredible time in their lives.
Maternity portraits are another one of my favorite types of portraits to create. I love documenting this incredibly pivotal time in the life of a new family.
Family portraits have also been a great joy to create for clients over the years. My family portrait work began when my first wedding clients began having children, expanding their families and hearts. I have been documenting families ever since, both for my wedding clients and for new families that I meet along the way.
I also cherish every high school senior that I get the chance to photograph. I well remember my own high school pictures, and it’s such a delight to create those images for the seniors and their families.
If you are looking for portrait photography of any type listed above, or something not yet illustrated on my website, please contact me. I create portraits both in my Gowanus Creative Studios studio, and on location in New York, New Jersey, and Philadelphia (and beyond!). I’d love to hear from you!
