prices from: Pricing for wedding packages begins at $1600 for elopements and $3200 for full weddings. Each image is hand edited by myself to create a beautiful, fine art gallery for you and your loved ones. Packages include different collections of photographers, additional hours, extra sessions, and heirloom products; and can be adjusted to meet your needs. Photographs are the only thing – five, ten, twenty years from now – that will be just as precious and important to you as the day of your wedding. They are your first family heirlooms as a married couple, and will be so incredibly special to your family, friends, and future children. I understand that. That’s why I put my all into every wedding – whether it is a two hour elopement or twelve hour celebration – to ensure that each image is emotional, honest, and will stand the test of time.

describe your artistic style:
I am a primarily film photographer based out of New York City. I’m absolutely in love with emotional portraiture, documenting culture and artistry in weddings, and creating photographs rich with history for my couples and generations to come. The most important thing to me is that you will look back on your photographs in ten, twenty, or fifty years, and have timeless images that feel incredibly romantic and momentous. My favorite couples are ones that pick venues unique to them and their story, and involve personal details for me to photograph.

what inspires you?
Hi! Welcome, I’m Sophie. Lover of all things light, film, and French Bulldogs (I own a puppy, Olive, who you'll likely hear about more than once during our conversations). When i’m not photographing weddings, I’m usually exploring New York City (I love museums), shooting backstage at fashion shows, or spending time with my family. I love to travel and explore, and when we meet I’ll likely have hugs for both of you as well as the best recommendations as to where you should go grab lunch. I am a huge fan of couples intensely in love, who care most of all about the experience of their wedding day and spending it with family and friends. Having an intimate wedding in central park surrounded by the ones you love? That sounds right up my alley. Eloping to Rome to say your vows on a hillside in the middle of some ruins? Yeah, that too. Moments matter to me, especially moments that mean something. Of course we’ll get beautiful photos of you and your bridal party, and I won’t miss your cake cutting. But I for sure won’t be passing up photos of you and your new husband sneaking away to watch the sunset or your dad crying during your first dance. Like what you see? Yay! I think we’ll be fast friends. Head over to my contact page and give me a little info about yourself & the plans for your wedding and I’ll respond as quickly as possible. Talk soon!

what do you love about weddings?
When you book your photographer, keep in mind that you aren’t booking just a photographer. You are investing in someone who gives their all to create your very first family heirlooms. Wedding photography is a long, hard, intense job and I love it. I believe in emotion, in intimacy, and in photographing everything from the timeless family formals to the tiny details you’ll never want to forget. That’s why when you reach out, I want to start to become your friend. Tell me about your first date, what you love about eachother. How you met, or where you live. I’m going to be telling your story, but first I need the prologue.

what's your travel policy?
While I primarily am based out of New York City and serve the surrounding areas, I love to travel! This coming season I will be headed to San Francisco, France, Los Angeles, and Boston for some amazing weddings. Travel fees are based on location and time of year.
