I make a living by preserving memories and by helping others stay relaxed, feel confident, and stay organized.  I work as a photographer, coordinator, and cheerleader on before and during your wedding day. 

I think of myself as outdoorsy and fit but I also love to binge watch worthy streaming shows and cuddle with my cat. I am the youngest of four and we were all encouraged to pave our own way through hard work and continuous education.  I am a workaholic, dreamer, traveler, foodie, and artist.
