Well you can read below about the "history" of me and my 18+ years in photography, but the truth is I just love marriage. I support marriage and love that I get to have such a personal and fun relationship with my clients during one of the most important times in their lives. Truth be told, it's almost like we date for a year or so with all that we do together before, during and after your wedding!

My goals are to create timeless images for your family to cherish. I believe in good mix of photojournalism and guided posing throughout the wedding day. My hope is one day your children and grandchildren discover your wedding album and you pass on the story of your love through it.

I'm currently living in New Jersey with my husband (wedding film-maker Rob Adams Films) and two kids, Felicity Grace and Judah Michael. 

I'm very much looking forward to hearing your love story!
