Hi, I'm Helen — a bubbly Wilmington, Eastern N.C. and

Outer Banks based artistic wedding and lifestyle photographer and graphic designer.

See if my style suits you and if you like what you see, let's chat.

Pausing on the everyday magic in your fast-paced life.

My style?

Color is a language without words.

If you're looking for the light and airy photographer, I'm not it.

If you're looking for the dark and moody, I'm not it either.

I'm just plain color, which is an oxymoron in itself, I know.

Because color is extraordinary and it's what makes you unique.

That's why we blush when something makes us happy,

and color lights up our face.

I'm here to capture it when it lights up your face.

“Helen is an absolute joy to work with! From the moment we met her during our engagement session we felt as if we had known her for years; she made us so comfortable and kept us laughing naturally in front of the camera. We knew she would make our wedding day just as special, and it certainly was. Helen’s positivity and joy for life, and especially love, radiate to those around her. The moments she captured of our loved ones celebrating with us in that magical secret garden are simply stunning.”
