MEET BECCA

I have been studying photography since 2009 and working professionally since 2011, when I shot my first wedding. I spent almost a decade traveling the world and studying environmental sustainability until coming home to Philadelphia in 2019 to launch my career full time as an independent visual storyteller. In 2018, I earned a graduate certificate in Documentary Studies and have worked with institutions such as The Philadelphia Inquirer, WHYY News, Sundance Film Festival, National Public Radio, as both a photographer and videographer.

MY WORK

My training as a journalist and documentary visual storyteller is evident in all of my work, from weddings and portraits to documentary films and branded visual content. Services I offer include:

  • Wedding Photography & Videography
  • Portrait Photography
  • Event Photography & Videography
  • Freelance Video Editing
  • Freelance Photojournalism
  • Freelance Documentary Videography

Working with me

"Becca is extremely professional, patient, creative, and collaborative. Working on a small team with low capacity, I deeply appreciated Becca's willingness to deliver high-quality products while accommodating our budget needs. Her intuition and clear communication will put any nonprofit communicator's stressed-out mind at ease!"
