Consider a tapestry—woven not with cloth, but with experiences. Composed of stories, spaces, and all the moments in between. Simultaneously sentimental and unexpected, bound together by both the timeless and the beauty of a fleeting instance.
This, I believe, is the texture of your wedding day—a milestone on one of the most compelling journeys you’ll ever take. Photos taken with purpose, I seek out the unscripted, the brief—but extraordinary—moments that define days and last a lifetime.
My work is driven by movement of the heart, deeply rooted in family, and inspired by the land. It’s my connection to stories, my faith in something old and something new, that fuels my creativity and keeps a camera in my hands for 15 years now, I cannot imagine a more beautiful way to fill my days.
