the paper elephant

Most days you can find me coloring and playing make believe with my daughter and hubby. When I'm not being called Mommy, I'm daydreaming about traveling the world and creating beautiful art. I'm an INFJ-A personality type (Jon Snow) and an enneagram 6•1•7 (Ron Weasley with hints of Hermione Granger). I started my career in fashion photography and dipped my toes in the wedding industry in 2007. I truly fell in love with weddings in 2012 while planning my wedding and focused my business on couples and boudoir. 

My team and I take a storytelling and journalistic approach in preserving the moments of your day by focusing on beautiful lighting and offering subtle directions to avoid overly posed images. Nobody wants to be a cake topper bride! We want to be observers and only intrude when it's desired to achieve an artistic vision. Our couples describe us as easy going and personable with a style of photography that is fun, timeless and romantic. 

All wedding collections include two photographers. Most of the time my husband is the best fit since we can read each other from across the room. However, sometimes rowdy groomsmen respond better to another female, so we'll discuss which member of my associate team is the best fit for your wedding day.

In lazy mornings, short breaks, long kisses, and moments that feel like they go on forever.

Adventure is the cure for anything that ails you, but it's somehow also true that there's no place like home with the one you love.

The photographs are about the wedding and that the wedding is not about the photographs.

Your photographs should focus on your love for each other in a timeless and classic manner.

You should live in the moments that you want to
remember!

I spend most of my time with my high school sweetheart, our adorable daughter, our scaredy cat, and our amazing family that sends hundreds of text messages each day.

I believe everyone should invest in experiences over things. I have been to 12 countries and dream of moving to Italy!

WANDERLUST

I'm happy to stay HOME on a Friday night binging TV shows, watching movies or playing board games.

NETFLIX + CHILL

My academic background is in architecture and graphic design, so I'm obsessed with home renovations and strive to create beautiful design in everything I do.

I've been obsessed with brain games since I was a child: sudoku, crosswords, logic puzzles, lumosity and elevate apps, etc.

Books are my jam, but my time is limited with a toddler running around, so I love podcasts. my Current favorites are Armchair Expert, Business Wars, and Imagined Life.

I'm a foodie at heart and a sucker for sweets. Gelato is my favorite, instantly taking me back to my time in Italy. And if bacon is an option on anything, yes please!

Most days you will find me curled up in a blanket or wearing a sweater, no matter the weather. I enjoy the cozy moments.

Ludwig Mies van der Rohe said it best, "Less is more." I'm constantly trying to marie kondo my life and live more meaningfully.
