Client Reviews

Simone did our engagement session and was the primary photographer at our wedding, and we couldn't be happier with the results. Not only is she the epitome of professional, we chose her because she gave off an energy that made the photos seem less forced and more natural. Simone's style is a mix of candid and posed which worked well for our wedding where you want "the moment" captured and need to nail the family photos and, boy, did she ever. She worked us through the nerves, the inclement weather, the questionable party-goer decisions, and was so patient through it all. Simone just made everything okay, which meant we were okay and able to enjoy our day that much more. As reference, I'd say on a scale from 1 - 5 (with 5 being most Type A), we're solid 4's, and have the utmost trust in her ability. I would 100% hire Simone again and would feel most confident in that choice.

Simone was absolutely amazing at our wedding! My wife and I are a little bit shy about taking pictures together and in general. We both feel kind of awkward! As an LGBTQ+ couple, it can be a little bit intimidating to have your pictures taken, because a lot of the examples of weddings that you see are heterosexual couples, so we didn't really have a vision to build off of. When we relayed that to her during our initial meeting, she told us not to worry and that she would make sure we didn't look awkward in our photos! On the day of our wedding, Simone helped to make us extremely comfortable, and as a result, we have some really incredible pictures! She also remembered all the special photos we wanted to take with our families, and was able to rally the troops quickly and efficiently so we could all get to the cocktail hour! We are so happy with the quality of our pictures and would 100% use Simone again in the future! She's the best!

We worked with Simone for engagement photos and our wedding day in August of 2021, she is AMAZING! The engagement photos were a great opportunity to get comfortable in front of the camera before our big day. We went to one of our favorite local hikes at sunset and had so much fun. Our wedding was a small event and Simone and her second shooter (Calvin) did a fantastic job. They perfectly captured the ceremony and efficiently went through our formal photos with family and friends. It was also definitely worth it to have them get ready with us and stay for part of the reception. We are so grateful to Simone and can’t wait to work with her again for other special events in our lives.

- Amy & Brock

We are so happy that we found, Simone, the perfect photographer for our wedding. Her warm and funny personality made us feel very confident that she'd be a perfect addition for our wedding day. Before our wedding, we had several discussions about what we envisioned the day would be. She listened intently and was well-prepared when the day came. On our day, she worked very hard, taking a variety of pictures at several different locations. She never stopped! In the end, the wedding pictures were full of smiles, laughter, happy tears and captured the magic of the entire day. Now we have beautiful pictures that we will cherish for a lifetime. We love Simone and her work!

About My Work

Photography has been a major part of my life since the wee age of 16, when I managed to convince my lovely art teacher to let me turn all my high school AP art projects into photography projects (what a saint)! From there on, I've been glued to a camera. I studied Fine Art Photography at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts and Tufts University in Boston and have photographed a variety of work professionally over the past 10+ years including for the Boston Red Sox, Health Warrior, Facebook, and have had my photographs published in Rock & Ice Magazine, The Boston Voyager, WBUR's The ARTery, and Vice's The Creator's Project. 

With all these experiences and more, I've discovered that the most authentic and beautiful photographs are those that center around big, beautiful, genuine love! I thrive on diving into the experience of the love between you, your partner and your family's (whatever that looks like for you!) and capturing those moments in true, natural, and candid ways to ensure authenticity in the imagery. Are you creative too? Got a wild and crazy idea for a photo that you want to pursue? I'm your gal! My creative energy and spirit are all yours, plus I love to photograph a good dance party.
