hi, i'm gen

You probably have five tabs open right now searching for the perfect photographer to bring your dreams to life.

I remember that feeling from Jeff's and my wedding! 

After 7 years photographing weddings, I understand that loving your photographer's approach is equally as important as loving their work. So kuddos to you if you're here cause you've figured that out too!

Let's have a drink and see if we're a good match!

From boardroom to ballroom

How a 20-Year SVP at a Fortune 50 Company became a Wedding Photographer

I've loved photograph since my grandfather handed down his film camera to me. I can still remember taking rolls of film, then waiting at the corner store for them to develop.

But growing up, I never thought I could build a career creating art and documenting people's stories!

It wasn't until years later, after a 20-year corporate career that I saw a way to build an amazing client service experience, centered around providing moment-driven photography! 

Your experience & memories

come first

Sometimes that means I climb into uncompromising positions, or get in close for those happy tears.

It always means that I go the extra mile, to document what's most important to you.

I've had a camera in my hands since the age of 15, and have invested countless hours in training to hone my craft because these memories - your memories - matter.

I love goofing around with my peeps.

when I'm not behind the camera...

Photography lets me capture life in all it's crazy, wonderful glory for my couples and clients.

And some days I get to capture the crazy wonderful life I'm fortunate to call my own!

This is my tribe and these are the moments I live for - whether it's playing one of our many favorite board games, taking our 2-year old pup Velma on a hike or finding a new restaurant to try out.

It's why I meet couples over drinks (in person or virtually) before we decide we're a perfect fit for each other. It's also why I don't work with every couple who contacts me.
