Why I photograph weddings: 

I believe that photography has the power to keep memories alive forever. I completely understand the importance of capturing life’s special moments through photography. It’s not just about capturing an image, it’s about encapsulating the feelings and emotions associated with that moment. When you look back at a photograph of your first kiss, first dance, or a candid moment from your wedding reception, I want you to feel those same emotions all over again, even if years have passed. Those memories make life so meaningful, I can’t wait to get to know you and learn what makes you – you.

My favorite quote: 

You must never give in to despair. Allow yourself to slip down that road and you surrender to your lowest instincts. In the darkest times, hope is something you give yourself. That is the meaning of inner strength.

My favorite dessert: 

Chocolate and Pistachio Gelato. Bellicimo.

My favorite place to visit: 

New Zealand, if Earth was an album New Zealand would be the greatest hit. Mountains, Glacier water rivers, adventure travel, astonishing views from sunrise to the middle of the night. The freshest food and the most spirited, sports-loving, and kind people in the world.

My ideal Friday night: 

Hosting a dinner party (myself being the cook) making different kinds of pizza. Enjoying some drinks while watching a Chicago team hopefully win and playing party games.
