There’s something about the true happiness of weddings that I just can’t get enough of. It’s that feeling that made me choose to be a wedding photographer, and that keeps me coming back for more every year.
My style is relaxed, fresh, bright, and natural. My belief is that your happiness on your wedding day is more important than anything else, and I'll work tirelessly to ensure that you are. When it's all over, I want you to see your images and say "this is my wedding, exactly as I imaged it."
My two daughters - Anna, 21, and Lydia, 18 - are everything to me. They are constantly a wonder, each with their own views of the world, their own dreams, challenges, and styles. Raising these two incredible people has been rewarding, humbling, and truly like nothing else life could have given me. Now, they are both in college and pursuing the next chapters of their own lives, and my husband and I can't wait to see what they do.
Christian is my best friend, my partner in life, and has been for over 24 years. He gets me. He supports me. He is gentle, smart, funny, and strong. At every wedding I photograph, I think about him, our wedding, and the years we've lived since. A wedding is the beginning of a wonderful story, and oh how that story unfolds.
I have never in my life lived without animals. Even in college, I had fish and tiny frogs, and in graduate school I cared for a dozen dolphins as part of my bioacoustics research (my past life - don't we all have one?) I'm in awe of the wonder of nature and all its diversity, and as a scientist I found out that we really only know the start of it. I wouldn't live without my pets. They can be a mess, but they are unqualified love. Yep, even the cats. ;-)
I am not an adrenaline junkie. The ocean is my fresh air, but you can keep surfing the crashing waves for yourself. I like gentle sails, peaceful kayaks, quiet appreciation of the glimpses of life that peek up from the depths. Whales are fantastic to me. Sea birds, sea lions, sea critters in general. And after the exploration, I'm a connoisseur of the good nap. Ahhhhh.
