a quirky photographer for modern professionals
I am so thrilled my work has grabbed your attention! Or maybe it was my love for good coffee and vinyl. Either way, I am passionate about telling stories and creating amazing photos for my clients and their family and friends. I am a Tampa and destination wedding photographer (will work for travel) and lifestyle photographer. I specialize in natural, organic moments and I love warm tones. I am an inclusive photographer and I am all for marriage equality. I am proud to serve all couples, including same-sex LGBT weddings and sessions. I also really enjoy offbeat, alternative weddings and people who push the norms and make their own traditions. The quirkier, the better.
My goal is to make genuine connections with everyone I work with, create amazing photos, explore our creativity and everyone to have an enjoyable experience at the same time. If you believe in investing in your memories while also having a blast, contact me!
Your wedding isn’t in Tampa? I am certainly not opposed to traveling to exotic locations such as… ok, I will go anywhere. Just ask about my bucket list and you may only have to pay travel fees!
The personality behind the camera: I am goofy, clumsy and really cool I promise. I love my husband Mohamed, our 3 pups (Zita, DD and Enzo), karaoke, music from every decade, Wes Anderson movies, riding bikes or blading, cozy get togethers with friends and family, road trips, and Tampa. Tampa has been my home since 1986 and I love living in our 1926 bungalow in Seminole Heights.

3 Rescue Dogs
If you haven’t noticed already, I love animals, especially dogs. I have 3 rescues. Enzo, who inspired the above image, is an Italian Greyhound we rescued from Pasco Animal Services. He was found running the streets and is now in tip, top shape. The oldest and queen of the bunch is Zita. She was Mohamed’s 1 year anniversary present to me. DD, short for Demon Dog, is our middle child. When she loves you, she really loves you, but it is the same for when she hates you.
I’ve been wearing glasses for a while now and I feel naked (and somewhat blind) without them. My face and brand would not be the same without them. Neither would your photos since I wouldn’t be able to see sh*t! If you’re looking for some neat frames, let me know and I will tell you where to get them!
If you’re from Tampa you know the reference in the title here. There was a record store called Vinyl Fever and you could get $1 deals on great albums! I love vintage anything, especially the sound of music on vinyl. I’ve been collecting since high school and many also come from Banana Records in St. Pete. If you’re having a vintage or modern vintage wedding, I’m the lady to hire because it makes me super excited!
I’ve been traveling since a very young age, because I was born in Lebanon. My dad is Lebanese and my mom was American Italian and Irish. My dream is to continue traveling for destination weddings and landscapes. I have a drive in me to see the world and if you’re getting married in Italy or anywhere on the Mediterranean I may just give you a really good deal. I love history and there is just so much to see and document it drives me crazy that I am not getting out there more often.
