Hello there!

I am a photographer specializing in family and wedding portraiture. My natural light studio is located in Highland and I enjoy shooting in the surrounding areas of the Hudson Valley. My life is a journey which includes a wonderful husband & three little people, ages 5, 7, and 9. I have always loved capturing memories with my camera. I picked up a class in college to learn the basics, but it wasn't until after I had my first daughter that I really started shooting every day. After working as an elementary school teacher, I switched gears to photography. I have been dedicated to learning all about it by attending workshops, classes, and shooting as much as I can. Life is hectic but I wouldn't have it any other way. I can't get through my day without chocolate, and at least one good laugh, usually provided by one of my children. My style could be described as candid, playful, sometimes detailed, and always natural. My main focus is to make people feel comfortable and allow them to go about their day while I capture precious moments they can enjoy for many years.

Maggie & Jay: The Roundhouse at Beacon Falls

Posted on October 8, 2014

Maggie and Jay were blessed with a gorgeous late summer day for their wedding.  Their setting at The Roundhouse at Beacon Falls was stunning.  Their first peek at each other before the ceremony was so sweet and I love how Jay was wiping away Maggie’s tears of excitement.

Their ceremony was lovely and they were so excited to finally have said “I do”  Cocktail hour took place overlooking the rushing waterfalls while everyone enjoyed some food and libations. Soon after, Maggie and Jay were introduced as husband and wife, and the party was off!  The EV Band was phenomenal and got everyone on the dance floor!

The flip flops were a great little touch, so when I asked Maggie if there was any meaning behind it, she told me her mom worked in Oncology and was a breast cancer survivor.  Instantly I felt a connection with her since my mom is also a survivor.  The shoes were a big hit for aching feet!

A great day for two people clearly in love and smitten with each other.  Thank you for inviting me to capture these memories for you!

Thank you to Syndi Acampora for second shooting with me!
