How long have you been doing this? Why do you do this?
Eleven years and counting! Nearly 200+ weddings later...I am truly in love with photography, it has been and will always be my lifelong passion and source of happiness. I am naturally drawn to documenting love and beauty in all capacities. As someone whose fought for 2SLGBTQIA rights for nearly my entire life, I can relate to how important diversity is and I am striving for it in all parts of my life. I am aiming to serve all clients based on their individual needs, while considering their intersections of oppression, and being sensitive to their privacy needs.
I had such a great experience with Ez for my engagement shoot, wedding, and boudoir session. They were accommodating and professional, and made the whole experience painless. I love their classy and modern style. I've recommend them to friends and will continue to use them in the future. I absolutely love the photo memories They have captured for us. I can't wait to have another reason to use them again!

Ez and Their intern did an amazing job capturing our wedding! The photos turned out better than we had hoped for! We had to change the date of our pre wedding meeting a few times due to my crazy schedule and Ez was always so flexible! They were also very good at figuring out poses for us that weren't too cliche! Everyone that has seen the photos absolutely loves them. I would definitely, and already have, recommended Ez to friends and family looking for a photographer!
Thanks Ez for helping us document our big day!!!
I was lucky enough to have EZ photograph my wedding. Every step of the process was handled with care and professionalism. During the consult EZ listened carefully to my needs and desires for the wedding day, which resulted in a plethora of photos that I absolutely adore. Ez captured every shot I wanted. Ez's gentle guidance in posing us made the shoot both comfortable and fun. Shooting with them was an absolute blast! I highly recommend Ez because of their professionalism, great spirit, and amazing talent. You will treasure each picture they take, just as I have treasured each and every photo Ez captured at my wedding.
As a wedding photographer of eleven years, I've never felt like pre-made collections worked for my inquirers. Now, I prefer to customize collections to each clients individual needs.
