I'm married to the man of my dreams-- his name is Jordan and he is truly my best friend. We tied the knot on September 13, 2019 at Wrightsville Manor. I may be a little biased because of that, but it is one of my favorite venues in Wilmington to photograph! 

We are also expecting our first baby (it's a boy!) this August! I cannot wait to step into this new role of being a mama and watching my sweet hubs become a daddy.

 When I say I love hearing about all the details of your wedding plans, I ain't lying, friend. Being engaged is so much fun! I fully understand how precious and exciting this time is, and that's why I strive to help my couples savor every single moment. It goes by fast but that doesn't mean we shouldn't celebrate engagement, marriage, AND beyond, right?

I'm a Long Island native living in Wilmington, NC. I've been in beautiful North Carolina for over 13 years though, so I consider myself more Southern than Northern these days. I absolutely LOVE where I live!

Even though I earned my Exercise Science degree in college (and still enjoy teaching fitness classes), I've always had a passion for pretty images. When I reflect back on my younger years, I think about the hours I would spend taking photos and editing them for my Myspace page or on the website I made about horses when I was 12 (kinda embarrassing but also cool?). And I often wonder why I didn't pursue photography as a career from the start. But here I am now, and I wouldn't change a thing about the journey that got me here!
