”These moments of impact, these flashes of high intensity that completely turn our lives upside down actually end up defining who we are... like our own personal greatest hits of memories that we play and replay in our mind, over and over again."

Our Philosophy

Wedding photographer in tampa & puerto rico

I see photography as creation, as moments that are captured to tell your story beyond your time. A legacy you leave behind so that your love will always remain immortalized. That photo you find decades later and get to say "wow, these are my great great ancestors" This is how I shoot weddings, this is how I hone my artistry constantly and strive to capture more than just the pretty moments. I aim to capture the true, the meaningful, the legacy building moments.

As a wedding photographer I have the opportunity to document one of the most important days in a couples lives and it is a responsibility I treasure and treat with so much love and respect. I have had the privilege to travel to many destinations to photograph weddings like New York, Puerto Rico, Florida, Charleston, Mexico and the Dominican Republic to name some. The truth is no matter how big or how small a wedding is, I approach all weddings with the same joy, enthusiasm and excitement. I love to photograph LOVE and it truly fuels me to be able to do what I do.


Some couples have asked me what makes me unique and the truth is that what I say to this is; my authenticity to tell your story. I will never put anything above my job to shoot your wedding as your own unique story. No cookie cutter images here, but rather moments of connection and emotion that are meaningful to you. I become a silent observer, documenting candid interactions and bursts of laughter. With each shutter click I am creating a tangible memory imbued with the soft focus and rich tones that my style of shooting lends itself too.

I truly believe that choosing your wedding photographer should not only about loving their work but also connecting with their style, personality and the way they constantly work on their craft. I have been shooting weddings for quite a bit now and you can find lots of my work online, published and on my socials. You will see I am versed in everything from small gathering to the ultra luxe large weddings. I am blessed with an incredible team that makes me a better photographer and let's me be a boutique company focused on giving the best customer service before your wedding, on the day and after the I Do's have been said. I only book a limited about of weddings a year (less than 20) for this sole purpose.

We are also completely inclusive, we believe love is for all and we make sure to always express this to my incredible couples.
