Hi & Welcome!

I’m Cassandra. I’m a traveling lifestyle photographer for free spirited families, down to earth couples and self-empowered women looking for an artistic, soulful experience.

After losing my dad in 2013, my motivation to document real, honest moments for others was heightened beyond measure.

I believe that life moves fast, and documenting love in all of its forms is a surefire way to be able to relive those moments forever, and to have something tangible to hold on to for generations to come.

I’m also incredibly passionate about sharing what I know with other photographers, and helping them to streamline their business while remaining authentic to their art. I’m a huge advocate for community over competition, and I feel so lucky to be a part of this creative industry.

Whether you’re a potential client or are eager to learn more about photography, you’re in the right place and I’m so happy you’re here.


CLIENT LOVE // Families

We’ve hired Cassandra more than a dozen times, and the memories that we are able to look at every day on our walls are so worth the investment. She makes you feel so comfortable and at ease — just completely in your element. A lot of photographers are talented, but Cassandra has a special talent. When I look back at photos from years ago, I can remember exactly how I felt in that very moment. She truly has a way of capturing the love, the excitement and happiness you are feeling right then and there.

Cassandra has been our family’s go to photographer for the past 6 years! We loved her work after seeing another friend’s pictures and knew we needed the love she captures in my own life. Not only does she take phenomenal pictures, but the highlight films she creates while we are just doing our thing — they’re magical. It’s the emotions, facial expressions, mannerisms of my daughters caught on those films and in her images that we treasure. She’s worth every penny and we can’t recommend her enough.

CLIENT LOVE // BOUDOIR

It’s an understatement to say that Cassandra does beautiful, magical work. I couldn’t have imagined that the pictures would turn out as amazing as they did. During the photoshoot she made me feel naturally at ease. Initially this was just a gift for my fiancé, but the pictures Cassandra delivered made me feel more beautiful and confident than I ever have. They are classy and sexy with just the right amount of lust.

By the end of my shoot with Cassandra I felt like I had made a new best friend.

CLIENT LOVE // VOWS

Our wedding wouldn’t have been the same without Cassandra. We were planning a destination wedding in Italy, and wanted to have our wedding documented by someone that we could really trust. Cassandra joined us for the entire long weekend in Italy and it was perfect. When it came to the big day, she was full of energy and smiles, and our wedding photos are a dream come true. If you’re looking for a wedding photographer for your destination wedding - look no further.

We seriously couldn’t have asked for a better photographer for our wedding - Cassandra is amazing! Throughout the entire year of planning, she was involved and responsive (not to mention sweet as can be). On the day of the wedding, she was great at instructing us and the bridal party on where to go/look etc. during pictures. The final pictures are absolutely STUNNING! She captured the entire mood and feel of our wedding. We absolutely loved working with her.

Cassandra is so sweet. Having her in Greece with our family was like having an old friend along for the trip!
She is worth 10 times what she charges - all you need to do is look at her work because it speaks for itself.

Don’t hesitate booking Cassandra. She’s worth every single penny. She over delivers EVERY SINGLE TIME as I have used her on multiple occasions since. You will be spoiled when you receive your pictures. She has an amazing eye and captures moments beautifully with transparency. She’s also a kind and generous person and keeps you at ease.

If you’re thinking about working with Cassandra, our only advice is to ABSOLUTELY DO IT. If you’ve seen her work, you know that it speaks for itself. We couldn’t be happier with the entire gallery - even our family and close friends were moved to tears by the beautiful and candid moments she so perfectly captured.
