Avant Garde

Working with me is effortless! I am available to you for any questions and help you may need in planning for your big day. I am a master of the timeline and can plan for even the most obscure scenarios, as I have experienced everything imaginable in my time as a wedding photographer. On your special day, I am the guardian of the timeline, your confidante, and in charge of making your day as stress free as possible! I will be troubleshooting all problems before they arise to ensure you remain carefree and calm, to focus on what truly matters most. All of this I do with a radiant smile and infectious, happy attitude that makes everyone else have a good time

Leading up to wedding day I am available for any help you may need regarding timeline creation or vendor suggestions. I know how difficult and overwhelming it can be to search for your dream wedding team, and how frustrating that can be. So I have taken care of that obstacle for you.

One of the benefits of booking your wedding day with AGS is that I provide you with a full list of my professionally vetted recommendations. On top of that, I also offer custom designed save the dates and thank you cards, totally complimentary! The whole goal of our time together BEFORE your wedding day is so I can get to know you and your fiance and who you are as a couple to better represent your love on the big day. That can happen during one of our many planning conversations or during your engagement session. 

I’m a southern soul living in the big city. I’m a transplant, originally from North Carolina, but have definitely made New York my home. I grew up wanting to be a photographer and have taken every opportunity to study and experience the craft. I am a HUGE foodie. I absolutely adore trying new places to eat and new recipes to try my hand at cooking. Living in The Tri State area definitely afforded me the opportunity to experience many different types of foods and cultures, and for that I will always be thankful.

Let me tell you about the Avant Garde Studios Experience! My couples are truly some of my favorite people in the world. You guys know how to ignore the hustle and bustle of modern life, take a step back, and get lost in the love you each feel for each other. It is my immense pleasure to capture that authentic love for each and every one of my AGS Couples! In case you were curious what the process of working with me + my studio is like, I have some good news for you...
