Welcome! I'm a wedding photographer, wife, and mom to a sweet baby boy we call John-John.

I started this business because I believe that every couple deserves not only gorgeous images from their wedding day, but an experience that allows them to be fully present and feel absolutely incredible!

Last spring, Patrick’s sister Mollie studied abroad in Dublin, Ireland. We were so excited for her and wanted to share the experience so we planned a trip for a week in March. Lucky for us, our siblings have studied in some really cool places and we always make sure to visit them.

As we stepped off the plane and walked onto the tarmac at ACK, I said to Patrick, “Pinch me.” I couldn’t believe we were actually in Nantucket. Just two weeks before I’d received an email from Jaime asking whether I’d consider traveling to the island to photograph their elopement. A quick peek at my calendar and I answered with a definite and enthusiastic, “YES!” If being asked to travel to a gorgeous location wasn’t enough, they welcomed Patrick joining me to both second shoot the wedding and so that we could enjoy a few days together in what they described as “a magical place you should enjoy with someone you love.” Seriously, that’s what they said. Cue all the heart eyes for this romantic couple.

When our plane touched down in Liberia, Costa Rica, our adventure began. As we stepped out of the airport, the delicious, warm air hit us and we immediately started peeling off layers. Coming from the DC arctic, we all did a little victory dance to be in a tropical climate. Once we were in our tanks and shorts, we found our shuttle and the four of us who had arrived at similar times piled in.
