What I believe in
I'm about Real Connections. Real stories.
If you're here, I hope its because you find something in my work that moves you. Your photographs have the ability to preserve memories and create new ones. The foundation of my work is storytelling and documenting your wedding day as it unfolds. I want to capture the genuine moments as they are happening, and avoiding the staged and posed feel.
I believe in couples doing things their own way. Whether you want to climb up the side of a mountain, to find a secret spot to elope, just the two of you, or inviting 50 of your nearest and dearest to celebrate somewhere meaningful to you, no special day is too big, too small, too far away or too simple. Do things your way- If that means sticking with tradition, or forgoing it all together. I am supportive in your plans and would love to tell your story.
I would love to get to know you, not only as a couple about to embark on a life's journey together, but as individuals, as I believe in creating real connections, so you can open up and be yourselves. I do this so I may be able to capture you in a conscientious and honest way..
What you can expect
Hiring a photographer should be more than another check off the box, it should be an experience as well. I'd want to be more than a vendor to you, and you feel more than just a client. You mean so much more. I find I work best when I feel like we have a great connection and that isn't only what I deserve, but most importantly what you deserve too.
I want your photos to capture your truth and your love. So when you look back on these images in the years to come, you can be reminded of all the emotions you felt and the love you have for each other.
Our memory of events and people might not always be as reliable as time passes and this is why your wedding photographs are so important- They are the thread that ties your day and moments together. You do not get to take much home with you after the wedding day, except the images that tell the story. Your images will increase in value over time as they are handed through generations.
My style is heavily focused on real moments. No forced smiles, nothing staged and fake. I’ll help direct you a little bit when it comes to your portraits, but would rather you focus on each other. It’s important to me that you two are being yourselves and present with one another. I want to capture you in an honest way and that’s the best thing to me! I of course will help guide you through the day, making sure you are exactly where you need to be at the right time. Again, I talk about how connection is so important, it’s really because I work best when I feel like we are friends. We are in this together so we can create something beautiful together.
Chances are, you haven’t had to plan a wedding before, so I can understand how overwhelming it may be to figure everything out. I can pull from my experience at weddings to let you know what works what doesn’t and how to get the most out of your day. This can be anything from sorting out a timeline that ensures you aren’t feeling rushed on the day, to vendor recommendations. I would love for you to be able have a stress free day and be able to enjoy yourself with your friends and family. I'm happy to help in any way I can to make this as stress free and fun as possible!
Think we'd make a good fit?
Perfect. Wondering what's next? Simply reach out to me and tell me all your plans, whether you have many this far, or are just in the beginning stages, I would love to hear from you. You are exactly who I have been waiting for.
