I come to you from my cozy studio in the heart of the Hudson Valley, in Woodstock, New York. It is gorgeous here - the light, the history, the nature all merge into one valley that takes my breathe away daily.
Are you lucky enough to be getting married in this most special place? I would love to be the one to capture your Catskills wedding. I think weddings are magical. Mine was one of the best days of my life (above is a picture of me on my wedding day in 2012). I want you to look at your photographs and relive all the feels you had from that day.

Here are some FAQ to help you but please feel free to contact me via email for lots more details.
I am originally from NYC and now live with my family in Woodstock, New York. I have been taking pictures for as long as I can remember....falling in love with the darkroom in high school and transitioning to adore the digital darkroom too. I earned a Master of Fine Arts degree in Photography from the University of Massachusetts Amherst in 2007 and have exhibited my photographic work in galleries nationwide. I have always worked professionally in the arts - running a gallery at UMass Amherst to being the Education Coordinator at a not-for-profit photography center to currently working as a photography professor. I especially love to help others find their creative voice through the photographic medium.
Are you available for photographic services?
Yes! I am available to photograph your wedding, event, family, or individual portrait in the Hudson Valley. I am also available to teach classes or teach private sessions. Every summer I teach a popular Teen Photography Camp in Woodstock - so keep an eye out for that.
Can I see examples of your photography?
Of course! This website has a small amount of examples. Browse the wedding link and you can see excerpts from different weddings. Interested in a photo booth? Check out that link. Want to see more? No problem! Get in touch and I can send you a full wedding album or excerpts from many more weddings.
How many weddings have you photographed?
I photographed my first wedding in 2000 for a close friend. I had so much fun doing it that I offered to photograph several other friend's weddings for the next few years. I continuously photographed more and more weddings a year as a side profession while I was working other jobs in the arts or attending art school. Before I knew it, I was getting more requests for my services than I could handle (not a bad thing at all!). So, I decided the best thing was to only take a small number of weddings and family portraits a year. That way I can put a lot of energy and love into each occasion that I photograph, and never feel overwhelmed (because YOU are worth it!).
How much do your services cost?
I customize pricing based on each wedding, portrait, private lesson etc. I find that each of my client's needs are so different and I want to make sure that my pricing reflects each individual. For example, a wedding with 50 people will likely to have different photographic needs than a wedding with 250 people - that is why I like to have a brief consultation over the phone and then send a quote based on that conversation. Do not hesitate to contact me for information.
Where are you located and will you travel?
My home + studio are in Woodstock, New York and I tend to photograph a majority of my wedding, events, portraits and family sessions in the Hudson Valley region. However, I am always up for traveling! Just contact me for details.
Do you have an assistant?
Yes, I have an assistant who also acts as a wonderful second shooter. She will help me with equipment, run the photo booth and/or be another creative set of eyes to capture the day.
