As a formally trained anthropologist, I approach photography as an observer with an artistic and creative mind. I’m a true romantic at heart and fight back tears at most weddings— photographing the couple exchanging their vows with a blurry, tear-filled eye. My creativity allows me to mold small, touching moments into genuine, fine art photographs. I see myself as a librarian at heart—an archivist of this specific and wonderful moment of your life— cataloguing little glances of love and adoration that will be embraced and shared generations down the line.

My romantic inclination seeps into every aspect of my life: I still shoot film and buy vinyl records, and I hold a secret desire to someday live on a small farm in the countryside of France with a tiny vegetable garden, a goat, complete with a dark-­room in the cellar. I think there is nothing better than a good glass of wine, homemade ice cream, a game of scrabble, or falling asleep in a hammock with a book on my chest.

My influences include Richard Avedon, Diane Arbus, Egon Schiele, Jackson Pollock, and Anais Nin.
