I’ve always been drawn to matters of the heart and the amazing connection that exists when you bring family together. Before my career as a wedding photographer, I was a cardiology nurse. I worked with patients intimately and incorporated their families into the treatment and healing process. It was a beautiful time in my life because I was so intertwined with patients as they went through something profound. What I love about documenting a wedding day is that I also work so closely with couples, and with their family. I am able to witness and participate in an event that will forever be remembered and celebrated. It is truly an honor and a privilege to have that close connection to those I’m photographing.
