About Ariel

Ariel’s approach to photography is rooted in the pursuit of curiosity and empathy toward her subjects, and she’s particularly drawn to weddings because they are full of life, conversations and everything in between. 

With ten years of industry experience since earning a B.A. in Journalism, her signature style of vivid, candid and earnest imagery draws from a love for storytelling and a former career as a producer in digital media and TV. 

Ariel’s photography is also strongly influenced by one of her favorite writers, E.B. White, who famously penned the phrase, "“Always be on the lookout for the presence of wonder.” Sometimes, moments that seem insignificant to the present carry much more meaning when reflected back through a photograph years later. Intentional observations of the everyday moments is what drives the core of her work.
