I believe, it's about more than hiring someone to hold a camera and snap a few pics. Wedding photography is about  capturing the moments of your big day in a way that beautifully tells your story.

Raina McMillan, THE PHOTOGRAPHER

GET TO KNOW ME

Fueled by equal parts caffeine and Old School Hip Hop and R&B, I spend my days capturing the kinds of images that tell stories with beauty. Your story, your love, is beautiful and I can't wait to capture it in images you will treasure for years to come. 

I believe in real moments and heartfelt conversations over a good beverage. In the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments.
