I never thought that I’d be a wedding photographer, but as far back as I can remember I wanted to be an artist. I grew up in Fall River and graduated from U Mass Dartmouth with a BFA in Printmaking. I went on to study Art History at Brown. But I couldn’t figure out how to make those fields work as a job. So I went back to school for something more utilitarian: a master’s degree in Professional Writing and spent over a decade working in communications. I had a good career, but my heart wasn’t in it. I could never figure out how the pieces of my life — my passions, my skills, and my work — fit together.
After not making art for years, I picked up a camera again. Pretty soon, photography was all I could think about.
Today, I am a full-time wedding photographer and have photographed over 300 weddings. I’m honored to be named as Boston Magazine’s Best of Boston® 2017 & 2013 “Best Wedding Photographer.” In 2013, Rangefinder Magazine honored me as one of the world’s “30 Rising Stars of Wedding Photography.”
