  Wedding Photography

I love photographing weddings! I accept only a limited number each year, so I can devote my full attention to the entire photographic process (not just capturing your big day, but also the work of processing and retouching your images and assembling your album). I also like to ensure that we’re a good fit and will have a mutually positive experience working together. My wedding packages include a complimentary engagement session as a great way for us to work together before your big day and the best way for you to already feel comfortable in front of my camera. I love to travel and a destination wedding is my cup of tea…anywhere around the world.

 Portrait Photography

I love connecting with individuals and families while capturing the natural and spontaneous group dynamics. I believe you can’t have too many photographically-captured memories to keep and pass down to your children and grandchildren. How about an updated family portrait, senior portraits, corporate head shots, or a beautiful commemoration of a milestone achievement?

 Event Photography

Over the years, I have learned that I can’t do everything. I know that I can either be mentally present for my child’s birthday party, that special and intimate dinner party, the large event I’ve spent too many late nights organizing, or I can spend that time behind my camera and end up missing out on the “moment.” I’m now a firm believer that it’s okay to let a professional capture my special event, so I can sit back, relax, and enjoy my friends and family. I love capturing the little details that make an event so special, but often get forgotten afterward if they’re not photographically preserved.

  Travel Photography

I am a world traveller with over 35 countries checked off my list. My travel photography website The English Explorer and all-things-travel Facebook page is where you can stay up-to-date on my adventurous side. You can also purchase canvas prints! If you like what you see, share the love by clicking “Like” on my page and following me on Instagram.
