People often ask me how long I’ve been doing photography and it’s always a hard question to answer. As a child I always had a camera in hand. At just 10 years old, I began crafting stop-motion videos using LEGO bricks, followed by filming family travels at 14, and vlogging on my YouTube channel at 17. I quickly became the family and friends photographer, shooting anything and anyone that would allow me too.These early experiences ignited a passion within me, and I soon realized that capturing these moments was more than just a hobby – it was my life's purpose. Through my own lens, I captured special moments, as it became my way of connecting with the world and conveying emotions where words often fall short.
Starting my career in NYC, my photography journey has extended across the tri-state area and beyond. National parks have been a consistent source of inspiration; from capturing the awe-inspiring landscapes of Zion National Park to the peaceful scenery of the Great Sand Dunes and Rocky Mountains. Traveling internationally, I've photographed iconic landmarks like the Eiffel Tower and the Acropolis, even arranging a fashion shoot at the Louvre in Paris. Travel is a catalyst for my creativity, fueling my passion to capture diverse experiences and new horizons. These visuals allow me to share my adventures with others, inspiring them to discover the beauty of the world and create their own stories.
As my love for both national parks and global exploration continues to grow, I'm thrilled to expand my portfolio with more incredible destinations. If you're envisioning a wedding in Hawaii's stunning surroundings, a couple’s shoot in the romantic charm of Italy, or an editorial in Greece, I'm here to expertly capture those special moments and bring your vision to reality.
When you choose me to capture your moments, get ready for a laidback experience that's all about preserving genuine emotions. I thrive on documenting the raw, unfiltered, and candid instances that truly reflect you. I want you to feel at ease, to be yourself, and to forget about the camera's presence. As we embark on this creative journey together, I'll ensure you're comfortable and enjoying every second. It's my goal to capture the true essence of you, just the way you are.
