I absolutely LOVE being a wedding photographer. After my photography classes were finished at RISD in 1996 I thought I would only do B&W film limited edition landscapes but I soon started wedding photography in 2001 at the request of friends AND I'm so glad I gave it a try. I could not imagine my life absent from the opportunity to witness a couples love and document all those moments for you to cherish for a lifetime. If you are looking for photography that will give you the ability to relive your wedding moments as you look through your album look no further! I will provide you with a personalized experience to capture your wedding moments forever in fine art prints and albums of the highest quality. Remember the cake is eaten and the flowers fade but your wedding images need to last forever!
My dates fill up quickly because I only book a limited number of weddings each year I can be as excited about your wedding as you are!
Packages range from 2300 to 4200 with most couples spending 3200 for the most popular inclusive wedding package with an album.
I am a Wife, Mother, Sister, Friend, Daughter and a Photographer who captures LOVE. Like many photographers my interest in photography started at a young age. Growing up I was always snapping photos and compiling album after album of images. After completing college and beginning a career in an unrelated field I decided to return to school in 1994 at RISD (Rhode Island School of Design) to pursue my dream of photography. I wanted to be more than a picture taker and endeavor to perfect my photography every day. I attend many workshops to learn new secrets to photography. I also plan my own for fun photo sessions during the winter months. I have photographed over 100 weddings in my 17 years as a wedding photographer. I have run a successful photography business for 19 years. You can be gauranteed I'll still be here when you need reprints or to save any future moments in your life.
When I'm not working my other passions are traveling and cooking. I love to venture overseas or camping to discover areas I haven't been to. I take tons of photos of the new places I travel to. My home is full of canvas prints from my travels. I also enjoy taking photos of my family and enjoy looking back on all the years of photos to see how fast we are all changing! I try new gourmet recipes in the winter and in my busy season the crock pot is always warming something delicious up for dinner
Giving Back I belong to charity photography groups such as Operation Love (photos for military) and the Heart Gallery (which helps foster children find forever homes though portraits that show the child's inner spirit). I was the Hudson Valley Coordinator for Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep (infant bereavement photography) for over 10 years and still photograph for them at local hospitals. Through these organizations I am able to give back to a community in need of capturing precious moments. I am also an administrator for Wedding Vendors of the Hudson Valley helping all vendors learn and network together to improve a couples wedding day experience. I am founder and creator of The Hudson Valley Dream Team a group of local wedding vendors that strive to make your wedding day perfect!
