Meet Sonia

You’re searching for your ideal photographer and somehow you’ve made your way here. Before you make any final decisions, you want to make sure my personality is one that you’d be happy to spend a good portion of your wedding day with, right?

Absolutely. I would hate for you to end up with someone you don’t get along with — because that will translate to your photos.

And in the case of branding photos – you don’t want to waste time and money on hiring a photographer that can’t actually capture your vision.

You deserve a photographer who’s going to deliver what you’re looking for, so let’s make I’m that photographer before you commit to anything.

I do things a bit differently.

I’m not a huge fan of posing in the traditional sense of the word. I find it tends to be stiff and lack personality. It’s wonderful for those timeless family photos and that one shot of you two smiling for mom and dad’s fridge. When we’re shooting, I will make sure you know what you’re doing and will give you plenty of direction. When you’re both comfortable with being in front of the camera, I’ll ask you some questions and direct you into a place where you can forget about me and just focus on each other and the little reasons you love this person.

It’s the real memories and emotions that I want to document. Because it’s the real memories and emotions you’re going to want to remember. If looking back on your photos is going to make you cringe about the awkwardness, they’re not worth taking. Let’s create some meaningful art so you can look at the photos after and truly say “that’s so us”.

Kind words

Sonia was amazing and really helped to make my wedding special. Due to covid, plans changed drastically and many of my family members were unable to attend the wedding.

Sonia was great enough to do a pre-wedding photo shoot with me and my fam (sans groom LOL) and we had a blast. I will treasure that memory and those photos for the rest of my life!


The perfect mix of professional, fun, and comfortable. Sonia captured not only the photos I asked for, but also the photos I didn’t know I needed or wanted. The candid queen tbh.
