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.

Playbill Photo Feature

It was an extreme honor to receive a Playbill photo feature on Playbill.com!  What began as a fun concept shoot turned into a passion project for myself and the team, and it was phenomenal to see the final product featured on a site that I’ve been a fan of for so many years.

Theatre photography has my heart, and it’s been such a joy to explore these shoots.  While I am primarily a wedding photographer, working with performers has brought a new life to my work.  It’s so marvelous to be working with a community that I love and respect so dearly.  I look forward to more collaborations with this theatrical dream team, and I know we’ll have more work to share soon!
