I pursued international nonprofit photojournalism before stumbling into wedding photography in 2008 and realizing it was a career perfectly scripted for me. Nearly ten years later, I truly believe I have the best job in the world.
There are plenty of other superficial things I could share about myself— I love dark chocolate and red wine, I love DC for its grand architecture and rich history, I have a husband I adore, a strong marriage, a darling baby girl, a quaint old brick home, and a never-dying love for strong coffee.
But if you really want to know me, here are a few things that matter:

It is the best thing that ever happened to me, and I want to do all I can to help my couples grow their love and commitment to each other, because it really does make all the difference in the world.
