How are you different from other photographer and what is your style?

 

I am drawn to classical elements of art. So I would describe my style as elegant, however, I also have a playful personality and I like to infuse fun into everything that I do. Wedding photographs should look timeless and tasteful, but it is necessary to capture the joy and emotion in each still.

My goal is to enhance the natural beauty of each bride and her bridesmaids through the artistry of Photography and Make-Up.
