"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever...It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything." Aaron Siskind

Hello and Congratulations

This time in your life is ALL ABOUT YOU...as a couple, as a bride and a groom. It's all about your families and friends. It's about creating one of those "best days ever" that you will remember and cherish and tell stories about. My purpose is to give you photos that you will treasure for a lifetime. I love spending time with clients who I connect with, and who in turn, connect with me. I believe it is important that as I stand there "next" to you documenting your life changing moment as you say I DO, you feel open and comfortable.

So here is a little about me, but when we meet I really would love to hear all about you. :)

It turns out I am crazy for love and emotions. I miss the years of growing up in Poland mainly because of our big family dinners every Sunday. That's part of why I love weddings so much. It's the gathering of family and friends that get me every time. 

Throughout your wedding day, I commit to capture the moments for you to cherish for the rest of your life: the laughter, the hugs, the fun, the dancing, the emotions, the closeness, the stuff you don't see happening on the other side of the room.

Officially I might be your "wedding photographer", but I am also your wedding coordinator, seamstress, makeup fixer, chauffer, chewing gum holder, boutonnière pinner, stress reliever, opinion contributor (only when asked), roudy-wedding-party boss-lady, tissue provider, wedding-dress-corset lacer, mud stain cleaner.

...on a more personal level... I love God deeply.  I love holding my husband's hand.  I love our children, our three pups, our home. I love it when my mom cooks my favorite Polish food. I love to curl up on the couch with a good book. I am all about comfy clothes. Every few years, I will cut all my hair off...just because I want something different...and it will grow back. I am completely addicted to chocolate.
