Joy + Passion + Soul


My focus is on gorgeous light and real emotion.  I photograph with an instinct for authenticity – not a cookie-cutter version of what I think your wedding should be.

“I instantly fell in love with her natural, documentary-style photography, and her LIGHT. There was something magical about the way she captured couples, and It wasn’t because it was overly produced – it was a keen understanding of what makes a good photograph: chasing the light and capturing the moment.”

I am a Hudson Valley wedding photographer located in the bucolic river town of Cold Spring in New York’s Hudson Valley.  I live in a little village home, circa 1850, with my three fierce daughters.  Accentuating soul, joy, passion with lovely light in photos makes me giddy. I want my photos to not only document what you see but to also bring you back to how you felt at that moment.  I love mood!

In addition to wedding and elopement photography, I also photograph families and editorial/commercial work.  You can find my work in the pages and on the covers of Edible Hudson Valley and Chronogram Magazines.  In addition, my work has been featured in three books, “Connecting: Celebrating the People and Places of the Hudson Highlands”,  “Raising Rabbits” and “OpenDays25: A Quarter Century of America’s Gardeners and Their Gardens.”.

Most clients invest between $4200 and $6500. Elopements start at $1700.  



It was a stressful build-up to the wedding day, but I’ll never forget your words that calmed me. I don’t know if you knew it on our call, but you literally guided me off the emotional precipice I was running towards that day.

We so enjoyed working with you. In this relatively short time getting to know you, it’s easy to understand why you are highly recommended and loved by many. You were consistently patient, attentive, and supportive.  You were invisible and everywhere all at once. Our friends and family have been singing your endless praises. Not exaggerating – it’s actually ridiculous on how many compliments you are missing out from hearing.
