"Now at last they were beginning Chapter One of the Great Story no one on earth has ever read, which goes on forever: in which every chapter is better than the one before." - C.C. Lewis

Your wedding is the first day of the rest of your life together. The day where family and friends come together and celebrate the love you have found. The day where you are center of attention and feeling the most beautiful you'll ever feel! I am there to not only take pictures, but to document all your special moments. To create the story of your wedding day that you'll be able to look back on for the rest of your life.

I love capturing the in between moments. The ones that are often missed because you looked away just a little too soon. When I'm photographing a wedding I am looking 100% of the time. I am waiting and watching for just the right moments that will make your heart melt.

All those tiny details that you worked so hard to put together are very important to me. I will capture every bit of your wedding from your table settings to your flowers to your entire venue!


I love to document the people involved in making your day perfect! We can't forget about these lovely people!



The very first official duty of the bride and groom as husband and wife is cutting the cake. Cutting the cake has a far more significant meaning than most would know. The feeding of one another a piece of cake has a root in the good old days when the wife stays at home and the husband goes to work. Although these traditions have changed, the meaning behind this is still quite beautiful. When the groom feeds his bride a piece of cake itself signifies nourishment, and through this sign, the groom pledges to make food available, provide shelter and money and for the upkeeps of the house and the family in general. When the bride feeds her husband the cake she pledges to care for the home, prepare food and give birth to children. That's pretty heavy for eating some cake!

This makes documenting this moment so important. I will capture your cake, and all the moments in between until it is shared between the two newlyweds.
