I'm an award-winning documentary wedding photographer, living in Bangor Maine, who is drawn to dramatic light, clean compositions, and emotional moments that punch you in the gut. My work has been featured in Maine Magazine, on the cover of Seacoast Weddings, and in Real Maine Weddings and Style Me Pretty, amongst others. I'm also a Fearless, ISPWP and a WPJA award winner and was named one of the top 50 photographers in the United States by Weddzilla.
But, more importantly, I'm head over heels about getting to know my couples and capturing the specific qualities that make them, their friends, and their family so uniquely lovable and memorable. By capturing these special qualities I'm able to craft wedding day stories that transport you back to your big day.
I used to study fiction, but realized that capturing real life with my camera was more compelling. After graduating with a master's degree in English, I spent my free time, when I wasn't teaching writing to college students, capturing photos of everything and everyone I could find, and knew I had found the right career after photographing my first wedding in 2011.
What else is there to know about me? I'm kind of obsessed with my 5 pound full-grown zuchon fur baby named Colonel that my husband, Tony, and I dote on way too much, dark chocolate, good black coffee, running, making to-do lists (and then satisfyingly crossing off each completed item), exploring Maine islands, reading, particularly young adult literature (ppst- follow me on Goodreads!), and watching compelling tv. And I may be a Mainer, but I have a hard time stomaching lobster and other seafood (which is such a shame, I know- I'm missing out!).
This is my story. Let me help you tell yours.
