philadelphia area photographer
chester county photography studio
Hello! I am based in Chester County, and I photograph portraits, weddings, and headshots in the Philadelphia tri-state area.
I began photographing professionally in 2000 and have taken photos of literally thousands of different kids and families, over 400 weddings, and hundreds of headshots.
My studio in Malvern is on gorgeous historic Chester County grounds, with 19th century preserved structures including an old ruin, a white-washed wooden barn, stone walls, a general store, and open outdoor space with tons of foliage.
The building is a fully restored 1800's home, with a winding staircase, four fireplaces, and gorgeous wood floors. There are two large camera rooms set up to photograph headshots, newborns, children, pets, and families on a wide array of backgrounds, as well as acres of land outside for seasonal photos.
You'll find me just a few minutes south of Malvern Borough, only about a 15-minute drive from downtown West Chester, the Paoli Train Station, Exton Mall, or Ridley Creek State Park. Center City, Philadelphia, is about 40 minutes without much traffic.
I'm a WPPI Certified Professional Photographer, which means that I've passed the Certification Exam and the Image and Business Materials Submission Review provided by WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International) and the New York Institute of Photography.
To receive this certification, I've had to meet or exceed the standards for a trained professional photographer. This means that you can trust me to be able to document your important moments with not only technical expertise but empathy and professionalism as well.
Diversity and inclusion are important to me. No one will ever be turned away or treated differently because of race, religion, or sexual orientation. I celebrate everything that makes us different, as well as the traits that unify us. You will not be judged here.
Black Lives Matter. Love is love. No human is illegal. Kindness Matters.

Portraits can be created in my Chester County portrait studio or on-location. I photograph families large and small and have tons of backdrops indoors and acres of land outside to use.

Slideshows, prints, canvases, save-the-dates, and thank-you cards are also available. All prints and albums are made in the USA.
