I'm a Pittsburgh raised portrait photographer, coffee addict, and animal lover, about to re-locate to Savannah, GA. 

Photography isn’t just about taking pretty pictures, it’s about saving the most important moments in people’s lives. I’ve always been in love with the way a couple looks at each other at the altar, the way a father cries when he sees his daughter in her dress for the first time, the groom’s face when the bride walks down the aisle, and the small quiet moments that happen behind the scenes of one’s big day.

From getting ready, to the last stragglers of the after-party, I love being there to capture it all. I always say it’s not just photography, it’s collecting moments; It is an absolute privilege to collect the moments that people consider the most important, allowing them to relive them for the rest of their lives, and to share them with generations in the future. It’s so important to me that friends, families, and couples can look at the photos I take, and feel the raw emotions felt on that day, remembering all of the love and joy between people. Photos are stories, they’re memories, and they mean the world.

I believe in the power of a photograph. There is something  amazing about capturing a split second in time and being able to save that forever. It's a career I wouldn't give up for the world.

In my spare time I volunteer with two Star Wars groups called the 501st Legion and the Rebel Legion. These are costuming clubs that visit hospitals, conventions, libraries, and more! You can find all the photos I take with them on my blog.

I hope to hear from you soon, feel free to chat with me about questions and inquiries!
