Hi! Welcome to my photography page.
I’ve been shooting weddings since 2005 when I opened my own business in North Carolina. I actually started shooting in 2000 with my mom, when everything was medium format film. In 2005, I went ‘digital’ and haven’t looked back.
I love shooting weddings and capturing the real moments between brides and grooms and their loved ones. My style is fun and laid back. I definitely believe in candid portraits, but I like to ‘pose’ the shots a bit. Men definitely need more help with group shots and need direction and I’m here for that. Weddings are so much fun and I’ve been lucky to document so many over all these years.
I took a few years off from the photography business, as I became a plus model and was living in different cities and countries. During this time, when I was living in Miami, I met my future husband. I definitely never expected that as he was a model from Brazil and not planning to stay in Miami.
After our time in Miami, he went back to Brazil and planned to continue modeling in Istanbul next. My agency had me placed with an agency in Istanbul and our whirlwind romance continued in this beautiful, busy historic city. We have been very lucky traveling the world and having multiple ‘honeymoons’!
Now fast forward to today, and we are back living in Miami and we have a beautiful one year old son, Valentino.
These days as a new mother have been some of the best of my life and some of the hardest! I’ve enjoyed documenting every month of Valentino’s life and seeing the changes each month brings.
