If you want a photographer who will make you feel instantly comfortable being yourself, you’re in the right place!

My gift is making couples feel like naturals in front of the camera. I use gentle guidance and organic movement to help you feel like you’re alone with each other, whether you’re in the heart of the city or in the middle of the dance floor. There’s nothing I love more than helping camera-shy couples learn to love the lens!

You fell in love for a million reasons, but near the top of the list is that you can be your true selves together. You love the special moments, but you also love doing life together - and that's what your marriage is all about. 

Whether you're planning an intimate elopement or a party on the dance floor, you deserve to feel completely comfortable just being yourself. Because when your wedding is a celebration of your connection as a couple, no detail will be more memorable than the way you loved each other at the start of it all.

before i tell your love story,

let me tell
you mine.

ten years ago,

I met my husband in the ER on the Fourth of July. I like to say our love story is like something out of a novel, because that's what it feels like! The night we met, I was staying in the hospital and we watched the fireworks together through my window. There were fireworks in more ways than one! I knew he was my person right away.

Iyke is the reason I believe in lifelong love. We got married after a month, and our wedding was an intimate ceremony in our garden - just the two of us. Ten years later, we're still completely inseparable. We have four little ones who keep us on our toes, and I wouldn't have it any other way!

MEET MY PEOPLE

Iyke and I are polar opposites who balance each other out. I remind him that laughter is important, and he reminds me to rotate my tires. I thank God for sending me a partner who leads our family with pride and loves me out loud!

Husband, love,
& the other half of "we"

Nnenna is the first one to the table when I say it’s time to eat, and the first one to ask for a snack ten minutes later! Daring and strong-willed, she’s got an appetite for life — just like her mom.

Vows to You

I'll help you
stay present.

I'll see you for
who you are.

I'll be there
when you need me.

We talk through every detail in advance, so that on your big day, you can leave the to-do list up to me. 

My gentle editing style is meant to embrace all the beautiful parts of you — no heavy retouching required.

When you’re halfway through the reception and haven’t had a bite to eat, I’m the one bringing you a plate!

my photo philosophy

1. The color I can't get enough of is

2. I never leave home without

3. The fastest way to my heart is

6. The perfect weekend includes

My bracelets. They're my good luck charms!

Through a big bowl of rice

A surprise plane ride going somewhere new

5. the way to turn my day around

4. the best thing about my love story is

7. A night in, or a night out?

A night drive with great music - heat on, windows down!

That I can't choose one thing!

Quick - hand me my heels!

FILL IN THE BLANKS

My Favorite

The photos on my mantle

aren't the ones that came out perfect -
they're the ones that are filled with love.

The tiny toes. The new baby smell. It takes me right back to those early days!

My first photos of my babies.

Whose memory we'll carry with us in our hearts for the rest of our lives.

My mother-in-law, our angel.

Traveling together is one of our passions. Next on the list? Santorini!

My husband is from Nigeria. We would love to move back there someday!
