a bit about me.

My love for photography started in my small hometown outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. From the time I was about three years old, I begged my parents to let me use their camera (probably a wise decision on their part to deny those requests and give me some disposable cameras instead). As I grew older, my infatuation with taking photos grew as well.  I studied photography throughout high school and college, but that was not the educational path that I pursued. Instead, I earned my bachelor’s and master’s degrees in accounting at Penn State University. It seemed wise to study something that would give me a stable job coming out of school, (right?) and I was lucky enough to receive a job offer with a prestigious accounting firm after graduation.

I worked at that firm for over four years (in addition to earning my CPA) and recently left to explore the creative fulfillment that photography has always given me. Recently, several people near and dear to my heart got engaged and I was honored to take their engagement photos and start professionally pursuing my true passion. I knew immediately that being able to capture the love and joy between a couple for them to cherish for years to come, brought me the fulfillment I was searching for.

I strive to capture the intense feelings and genuine moments between two people that shows how big their love truly is. For me, the authenticity of a moment between you, or with your family and friends, is better than anything else. I want to see you laughing, loving, and just being you. These memories are so important, and I am forever grateful to those that choose me to help document this amazing chapter in their lives. 

As a photographer, I love natural light, authentic moments and adventurous souls. When not behind the camera, I’m forever a Harry Potter superfan and pasta addict. I’m always looking for new people and places to inspire me. I love to travel, other than the fact that it sometimes pulls me away from my wonderful fiancé Mike and our pup Kingsley, the best Great Dane a girl could ask for.
