I am humbled and honored to have won this years Hudson Valley Magazine reader;s choice for "The Best of the Hudson Valley" in the categories of Portrait and wedding photography

Winning this award means so much after many years of hard work. I adore my clients, I absolutely am obsessed by photography and I continue to strive to improve everyday.

When I am photographing I am finding the beauty in the moment, but especially in who you are. I fall in love with everyone I photograph.I just can not help myself

Making Your Photography Experience Fun, Easy and Comfortable

There are so many photographers you may choose from.  We come from many difference walks of life from Urban hipster to a quiet country shooter. So many options, so many different prices.

I have learned as an experienced shooter that to capture  the intimate moments we desperately want to document, a couple needs to feel safe in our presence. 

At our first shoot, usually an engagement session, I take time to get to know my "subjects" 

I know how difficult it can be to be in front of  a lens, waiting for that awful click when you just. know you made a bad face. I know how self conscious it feels to stand still for what seems like a eternity. I know how bad  we can feel when we see a less then flattering images of ourselves.

The one constant comment I hear always is" That was so much fun"  and "I love these, how did you make us laugh so hard?" "I actually love these and I hate all pictures of myself"

I think it is the ability to listen and really be present with you. I want to hear your story, and be more then some hired hand, but a photographer that actually blends into the wedding without standing out or being in the way. After initial prep shots, everyone stops posing and let's me be as a fly on the wall-there but unnoticed, unless I am helping dry a bouquet or smooth a dress.

Here a few moments that I was lucky enough to be able to witness, without anyone feeling as though they had to hide the emotions from me or my camera.
