I capture the unspoken — the glances, the silences — drawing from New York's pulse and the richness of global cultures. Every wedding is its own intricate narrative. Rooted in theatre and life's everyday rhythms, I document moments both transient and timeless.

Embracing Film At This Year’s Weddings

I am embracing film at this year’s weddings, adding a classic touch to my photography services, and I am genuinely excited about it. There’s something truly enchanting about the classic look of film, and I couldn’t be more excited to reintegrate this beautiful medium into our services.


When I first embarked on my photography journey, film was my medium of choice. The tangible quality of film, with its unique textures and rich colors, initially captured my heart and shaped my early experiences behind the lens. Returning to film feels like reconnecting with an old friend, and it’s a reunion that’s both nostalgic and exhilarating.

I blended the old with the new this year, incorporating film photography into our digital shoots. This approach allows me to capture a wedding day’s candid, fleeting moments with the distinctive aesthetic only film can provide. The anticipation of waiting for film scans from the lab adds an element of surprise and delight to the process, reminiscent of a slower, more reflective time in photography.


I recently received my first set of film scans from the lab, and the experience was nothing short of magical. Seeing those first images reminded me of why I fell in love with film photography in the first place. Each frame brought a sense of depth and nostalgia that digital images can’t quite replicate.

Re-exploring film has been a journey of rediscovery. It’s a way to offer something unique and exceptionally beautiful to the couples we work with, ensuring their wedding photos are not just images but timeless art pieces. I am excited to offer this medium to our clients this year and cannot wait to see how these stories unfold on film.


Whether you’re drawn to the nostalgia of film or simply seeking a unique addition to your wedding photography, we’re here to make it happen. Let’s create something beautiful and enduring together, shall we?
