I’m the introverted, kinda awkward, all about the vibes and adventure(ish) soul that you can typically find behind the camera (rather than in front of it).

I'm here to serve + empower all the introverted, awkward in-front-of-the-lens, adventure(ish) couples who want to have an authentic, non-traditional wedding experience.

What matters most are the emotions you experience as the day unfolds. Whether that be in a place with easy to reach epic views, or any place or location that embodies who you are as a couple. I’m your go-to gal when you decide to take back control of your wedding day.

My Approach

And that's perfectly okay. I’m the kind of person who wears mismatched socks, needs a paper planner to feel like an adult, and who’s favorite animal is: Bird (yep. ALL of them.) Want to make my day? Gift me a feather you found that I don’t already have in my feather collection.

I’m an adventure(ish) gal with an adventurous soul. I’ve lived in northern New York for the last 20 years and I’ll never get tired of exploring the state I get to call home. I’m all about the views that are easy to reach and still take your breath away. If you’re here to hire me for your chicken wedding (yes, just like dogs who get married)—we need to talk, like, yesterday. ʸᵒᵘ ˡᵃᵘᵍʰ ˡⁱᵏᵉ ᴵ’ᵐ ʲᵒᵏⁱⁿᵍ

To be completely honest, I'm not for everyone.

If you’re into the Meyers-Briggs, I’m an INFJ. If you’re more of an enneagram person, I’m a 5w4.

If you’ve no idea what any of that means, don’t worry, they’re from highly critiqued personality tests (I could go on a tangent about the validity of personality tests—but I’ll refrain) that are meant to give others an idea of what basic personality traits you have.

I'm seriously stoked you're here

My values

Human Rights

I am a firm supporter in LGBTQIA+ rights and any discrimination is not tolerated. When you’re with me, you’re in a safe space. Trans women are women. Trans men are men. Your sexual orientation is valid. Your gender expression is valid. All of my preferred vendors are also LGBTQIA+ friendly/inclusive—bigotry can’t sit with us.

Diversity + Inclusivity

Real couples are more than the white-washed, cisgendered, traditional couples you all too often see in wedding publications. The wedding industry isn’t always welcoming to those who stand outside of heteronormative expectations—I’m here for you. Straight-passing or not, conventional or otherwise, your love story is welcome here.

Environmental Justice

Protecting the environment is reflected in my business and personal life with informed consumerism, Leave No Trace ethical practices, carbon neutral travel practices, and ethical living.

I promise to always make a safe space for you to be you

I want you to be your most authentic self—even if that means feeling vulnerable for a moment in time. Ya girl has worked hard, done the research, and published a piece of scientific literature to earn a doctorate in the study of human behavior. I’m practiced and nuanced in understanding the emotional and mental needs of people. (Please don’t ask me to read your mind, cause my friend, that’s not what psychology is about. And no, you don’t have to refer to me as “doctor.” The only time I ask that is if I become your professor.)

I’m here to provide you not only with stellar wedding portraits, but also be supportive, nurturing, and full of empathy and understanding for where you are emotionally and/or mentally. On top of this, you need to know I am a safe-person. This means that I welcome all love stories regardless of race, gender, sexuality, or religion.
