Why do you want to work with APW Couples?
I love weddings that directly reflect the couple not only as a whole, but individually as well. When it’s not about the size of your venue, or the amount of guests, or the cost of your dress or flowers – when it’s about the lives/personalities/ dislikes/likes of the couple that is getting married – that’s when I want to be apart of it. When you document such an event, where immense love is being out-poured from not only the couple but the friends and family as well – it’s inspirational, emotional and what I thrive for. It keeps a meaning, reason and passion for what I do. I consider it an honor to be a part of an unique, creative and intimate wedding.

What are your non-work-related hobbies?
Non-work related hobbies – this is difficult considering my job was created through my hobby. I would still consider photographing a hobby. Whether I am getting paid or not, I still photograph. I love photographing. And I love that I still love photographing out-side my job!! I have ridden horses ever since I was 5 years old. Unfortunately, I don’t have the time anymore to ride as much as I used to, but I still have a horse who means the world to me. Horses will forever occupy a large place in my heart. Traveling!! Sign me up!! I love traveling – seeing new places – experiencing new people — and photographing them!! My dog, my four-legged best friend, probably one of my best hobbies. I have recently made a commitment and promise to her and myself that everyday we will have at least 15 minutes of “play -time”. This usually incorporates going for a walk – she loves them, and I love the excuse to step away from my computer and spend some time with her. Life’s busy – but don’t let it pass you by. Take at least 15 minutes a day to smile and enjoy life!!

Explain your travel policy:
I serve the greater Chicago-land area, most of New York & most of Pennsylvania at no additional cost to my clients. When travel fees do incur, I make the promise to my clients that there’s no frills. No outrageous costs. I make it a point to keep my travel costs as inexpensive as possible.
