Taking a select number of weddings for 2023-2025
My grandfather got me my first film camera at age 13. I remember I would walk around shooting anything and everything. I didn’t know it yet but this would become my life long passion. I spent my twenties shooting fine art photography, and black and white self portraiture, and found my inspiration in work that spoke to human emotions.
In 2016, after almost giving up on the idea of a “photography career” as many of you know so few artists are ever able to make a living at what they do. I landed a job photographing elopements and weddings full time for a NYC based company. I fell in love with this work and the ability to connect with such a diverse group of people regularly. In 2019 I began paving my own path and have worked for myself ever since. Im deeply committed to this work and truly feel honored to get to do what I do.
My wedding photography and portraits can be described as photojournalistic/street-styled with a vintage fine art edge. I shoot both 35mm analog film and digital photography. I absolutely live for and love colors and colorful weddings. I believe in going with the flow of a day and telling authentic and genuine stories. Above all else I want couples to look back and feel moved and connected with the work we create together.
A few photographers I love and worth checking out:
In addition to photography I attend NYU graduate school for Mental Health counseling. I live in the Poconos with my husband Ralph and my daughter Luchiana Aruna. We love flea markets and thrift shopping, deep late night talks of sustainability, off grid living, alternative educational models and the fintech world. I shoot in NYC and the Poconos.
A bit about me — I’m a wedding + elopement photographer based in the Catskills of New York. I live with my partner, Kimberlee, our two dogs and our two cats. Photography is very personal to me — it came into my life in a deep and powerful way and presented me with a new and much needed perspective — seeing others in an intimate, sincere space allowed me to finally see myself. It’s been a critical piece of my own healing, and really – it’s just an honest piece of me, like my arms or the way I say ‘melk’ instead of milk. My interests range from kayaking to cooking to smutty romance novels to yoga to petting dogs to magic to buying records. I secretly wish I could be a dancer (spoiler: I am very clumsy) or a fly fisherwoman (am signed up for lessons, fingers crossed). I specialize in film and digital and documentary story telling.

I’ve been shooting film photography since high-school where I took some of my first dark room classes. I really fell in love with the craft and continued to pursue my degree in fine art through college. Ive always had a deep love and respect for documenting intimacy and my friends relationships. In 2017 I ended up second shooting for a wedding photographer. Wedding photography kind-of happened it was nothing planned in any real way. But, it has been the perfect combination and really satisfies my passion for the work. In addition to photography I also love music I sing and play multiple instruments. I shoot 35mm film and digital photography and love documentary story telling. G shoots in NYC, Long Island and Upstate NY. Gs work below: click links
