Most days you can find me listening to a variety of podcasts, binge watching a new show on Netflix while editing photos, or planning my next grand adventure!
I was born in Northern New Jersey, but grew up and grew my business in Orlando, Florida! I also had a short spell living in Richmond, Virginia and travel back at least once per year! I met the love of my life, Jack, in college and together we reside with our cocker spaniel, Rocky, in a tiny town on the outskirts of Orlando. We are getting married this July in Aspen, Colorado! Travel plays a huge role in our relationship and we love exploring new places together. I’m a wedding photographer who travels across the state of Florida and across the country every wedding season, a true lover of adventure, and I have a *slight* Amazon Prime addiction (but honestly, who doesn't??)
I started my photography journey in 2010 while homeschooling through high school. It was a great form of expression for someone who never got to really be around anyone! After college and a few jobs that just weren't the right fit, I decided to take this passion and go full-time with my business. Over the past 6 years, through 300+ hours of education and hands on learning, I created the best decision I could have made for myself and future family.
It has given me the opportunity to be a part of 50+ couple's intimate love stories, spend my days at home with my pups, take care of my dad with end-stage cancer, travel the country with the love of my life, and brought incredible new friends into my life (who were originally clients)!!
The gorgeous details of the wedding day are amazing, but the most important part to me is capturing intimate love story of my clients exactly as they happen (while cracking some terrible dad jokes in the process). My end goal is to make the wedding day as stress-free and fun as possible. If that means a confetti champagne cannon in the getting ready room or making an absolute fool out of myself, then that's what I will do!
My amazing fiancé who supports all of my crazy dreams. He's my adventure partner, the best dad, and even second shoots most of my wedding days with me!
My crazy 9 year old who acts like he's 2! He is our emotional support fluff, the best cuddle partner, and the lover of all toys! He has a bed in my office and spends most of the work day snoring.
I'm obsessed with Fall scents and amazing smelling items. Our house always has a candle or wax melt going and it almost always is a fall scent because it reminds me of home!
I love puppies. Cocker Spaniels are my soul mates. I grew up with 3 and we have a sweet fluff of our own, Rocky. They are just so fun!
If I could drive around in an RV exploring the world, I would. Roadtrips are my jam and I take as many as I can each year.
I LOVE Parks and Recreation. We both do. We have matching Mouse Rat shirts and re-watch the series multiple times a year. Jack is the Andy to my April.
Podcasts are my favorite form of entertainment. When we are out exploring, we love listening to Armchair Expert, My Favorite Murder, and The Bellas Podcast.
Speaking of The Bellas, I am a HUGE WWE fan! During my college years, I was able to shadow the lighting director of WWE and fell in love. I later worked for Nikki Bella on a project as a graphic designer!
I am obsessed with notebooks. I love all the fun designs and just writing down everything! I am very detail oriented and the notebooks keep me in check.
I am obsessed with a good pun and corny dad jokes. Laughter is really important in all of my relationships, and what better way to do so than with jokes??
We love to explore new places together (and I love making Jack take pictures in the new places). We are planning a destination wedding to start our new life together in an adventurous way!
I have a weird thing with numbers! They have to end in a 5 or 10, or I feel uneasy. Jack had to break a really bad habit in the car of not putting the volume to a random number in order for me to drive with him!
