Why do you see yourself as being Modern, Vintage, Classic, or Eclectic?
I definitely see myself and my work as being modern storytelling because of my approach and compositions. I love capturing connection, (hands especially), but maintaining a look that is smart and stylish.
What is your favorite wedding detail you've ever seen or created?
I'm not sure that I have a favorite... every couple and family is so unique to themselves that I always find a detail that is touching or just kickass at every wedding. But if I had to choose, I do always remember this of mine that had sewn part of her mother's wedding dress into hers so she would be there with her the whole day. She had passed away a few years prior and I thought there was something so poetic about wanting to keep it to herself. It was really beautiful to me.
What is your favorite store or brand?
I'm pretty obsessed with skincare these days so I'm going to say Kiehl's is probably my best friend/worst enemy.

What is your favorite thing about weddings?
