Weddings are, first and foremost, a celebration. My primary goal as a photographer is to keep it as such. The approach is simple: documenting your day as it unfolds and directing only when the moment and light are right. I combine my love for editorial composition, authentic moments, and natural light to create imagery that is beautiful yet true to you. Aside from capturing the best images possible, my number one priority is for you to partake in your wedding so that, years down the line, you'll be able to look back on your photographs and remember. Remember that love and joy was truly experienced to its fullest that very day.

My name is Serena and I'm a vintage loving, video game playing documenter of love stories. I first stumbled across the beautiful craft of photography in 2007 and, after assisting my very first wedding, I became obsessed with the art of capturing fleeting moments. It was a privilege to witness a strong bond between two individuals and the coming together of family and friends from near and far. It was then when I left my full-time job at a biotech company to pursue my dream of creating beauty out of ordinary moments. I haven't looked back since.

I use a combination of film and digital cameras to create timeless images - filled with a blend of romance, whimsy, and authenticity. My goal is to bring out the best in you, so that you can look back on honest images of yourself and your loved ones.

The connection between you and your photographer is such an important factor in capturing images that adequately and sincerely tell the story of your day. After all, your photographer will spend the majority of the day by your side.

If you feel a true connection to my work, I would love to hear from you and learn more about your love story.

I also firmly believe that favorite TV shows can really say a lot about a person and their interests. With that said, some of my recent enjoyments include: Westworld, Black Mirror, Game of Thrones, Sherlock, The OA, Last Week Tonight, Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, Silicon Valley, The Americans, New Girl, and The Man in the High Castle.
