Hi! I'm Molly, and here's my story:

I graduated from UConn with a Bachelor's in Psychology and Speech, Language, & Hearing Sciences, along with a minor in Cognitive Science. My plan was to get a Master's degree and pursue a career as a Speech Language Pathologist... but that was just my "realistic and safe" career pathway. Since Highschool, I always loved photography and videography, and being a wedding photographer and filmmaker used to be some lofty "dream job" in my mind, not realistically the "right" path for me- as a high achieving academic with parents who talked about "useful college degrees" and "successful jobs, not hobbies." But just 3 months into working a "normal job," I just knew this wasn't my calling. So rather than going to graduate school, I decided to just go for it- to shoot for my dreams- and become a full time photographer & videographer! You only live once, right? So why not re-direct my life towards a more fulfilling path of doing what makes me happiest and gives me the most freedom?? I wanted to at least try, and boy did I. In a short time, my business took off, and I was filling my calendar full of weddings and photoshoots. Never have I felt so fulfilled, and so certain that I made the best decision ever. Documenting beautiful memories of love and joy among newly weds, newborns, families, and friends has given me such purpose and happiness each day, and I love it.

A little more about me:

I'm engaged! My fiancé is getting a PhD in neuroscience, so he's the introverted science geek and I'm the extraverted kinda-crazy artist. We live in Willimantic, CT in a converted firehouse with our dog Maple, and he proposed to me in front of our woodstove on a cozy winter morning- which was perfect because I love our home. I painted all the walls very fun, bold colors and I love doing house projects when my schedule allows. Some other things I love when I'm not behind the camera or editing (which is most of the time), I am swing dancing, hiking, playing piano and guitar, cooking, or planning my own wedding! But most of the time I am editing your photos & videos or emailing you back, haha. 

My business is young, and I'm so eager to grow. I love this period of life I am in, full of learning and practicing and growing, and I am striving to do everything I can to better serve my clients, to help you feel comfortable in front of the camera, and to grow my skills and talent in the craft of taking and editing photos and producing films.

My girl Maple!

One of the best things about working for myself is getting to be with Miss Maple all week. She's always by my side, as I'm editing, emailing, and working on my business. She's also my adventure pal as well, we do it all together!

My boyfriend Tylor and I rescued her just before Covid hit, and it was the best decision we have made together :)

Sometimes, depending on the location, I'll even bring her to my photoshoots- since she loves people and running around outdoors!
