I am not your typical photographer by any means. I believe in documenting the moments, not making them. Sure, some of your wedding has to be posed a little, but your joy, laughter, and tears are all up to you. I am there to capture your day so you can relive every emotion all over again.
Not only am I there to photograph the biggest day of your lives, but I am also your personal happiness advocate! Need your dress bustled but can't find your MOH, I got you! Don't know how to pin your boutonniere? I've pinned hundreds! I'll be your emergency MOH or BM, your food runner when you're hungry, you're seamstress if there is a rip, your therapist when your mother-in-law is driving you nuts.
I am so much more than just your photographer. At the end of the day, we will feel like family <3
-You will most likely see me dancing or singing a little during the reception... I just can't contain my love for good jams.
-Fluffy puppies are my weakness... I don't put it past myself to roll on the ground and play with them!
-I love food, junk food that is.
-I embarrass my weirdness and awkwardness!
-I will probably say a few inappropriate jokes throughout the day.
I hear most of my couples say before every session "we've never had profession photos taken before" or "we have no idea what we are doing". This is 100% totally normal! Everyone feels a little awkward or nervous before your session. If you didn't feel this way in the beginning, I would say you're weird!
Since this is probably the first time I am meeting my couples, we spend the beginning moment simply chatting so that we can get to know once another! Having a connection with my couples is the most important part of the Ultimate Edge Experience!
I walk my couples through everything with clear instructions and by showing them the pose! I strive for portrait time with me, for both the engagement session and the wedding day, so be fun! Portraits filled with true laughter, smiles, and love shine so much brighter and have so much more meaning! My #1 goal as a photographer is to give my clients an experience they actually enjoy!
I was born and raised in sunny South Florida where I lived for 24 years before I made the choice to move to New Jersey to live with Jason. Down where I am from we say we are FloGrown, which stands for Florida Grown. I absolutely miss living in Florida, but not for the reasons most people would think! I don't miss the warmth or the beach, honestly I am over that scene, however I miss our friends and family the most. When we moved we left all that behind so we try to visit Florida as much as our schedules allow us to.
I worked as a Veterinary Technician while I lived in Florida for over 6 years and I loved every ounce of my job. I launched Ultimate Edge Photography back in 2015 while I was in Florida, focusing mainly on family portraits when I had free time. It wasn't until I moved to New Jersey in 2016 when I officially made photography my full time career!
I am so thrilled to say that I am officially married!!
On February 12th, 2021 I finally had the chance to call this man of mine my husband! It was so amazing to be able to plan along side so many of my couples, but it is even more amazing that I can say we got married and can now start our lives together as a family!
This is such a tough question because I am obsessed with it all! If I had to choose an absolute favorite it would be first look, bridal details, and family formals. People always think I am so weird because I say family formals, but this is the only time I can get to know your family! I love being able to connect with everyone, including your closest family and friends!
What is your favorite part of a wedding day?
I feel in love with photography back in 2007 in my first year of high school. During that time we only focused on landscape and nature and I took a picture of a traffic cone that I thought was the most amazing image ever! I know that sounds so silly but that was the moment when I was like "wow, I can really create something amazing!". In 2015 I officially launched my business!
How Long have you been photographing?
I used to focus solely on portrait photography while also working as a veterinary technician full time. However, 2017 after I photographed my first wedding I found my calling! Since then, I went full time into photography and I have captured over 150 love stories! Now I only specialize in weddings and engagements and I couldn't be happier!
What type of photography do you do?
I absolutely, whole hardheartedly, love chicken nuggets and Starbucks. I promise I am an adult! During a wedding day, and if I have time to stop, I will totally devour some chicken nuggets and a Starbucks coffee! McDonald's nuggets with honey is where it is at!
What is something most people don't know about you?
CHRISTMAS! Ugh, Duh! I love all the lights, the vibe, the cold weather. Just everything about it! We go all out every year on out Christmas lights. We actually have a competition every year with our neighbors on "who can do it better". Every year we add to our collection once everything goes on sale. I want to be one of those moms that has an ugly sweater for every day of the month for December!
What is your favorite holiday and why?
I would say I have a classic, documentary, and joyful type of eye. A normal wedding gallery consist of a well balanced mix of detail shots, portraits, and candids! Bridal details and newly wed portraits are some of my favorite moments of the day but candid moments are the ones everyone cherishes, so I make it an important part of your day to document as many candid moments as possible!

Kahlua (Mini Aussie), Whiskey (Mini Aussie), & Stuart (Chocolate Lab)
