MY STORY AND WHAT IT MEANS FOR YOUR STORY

Two years into photographing weddings a family member passed away unexpectedly. I was unable to attend his funeral due to a wedding I was booked to photograph. The day before the wedding, and the day of the funeral, I was scrolling through his Facebook page looking at all of the photos people were sharing of him. I immediately saw the importance of these photographs to people like I had never seen before in my life.

I immediately saw the importance of these photographs in a way that I have never seen or understood before. 

I promised myself that when I covered the wedding the next day that I would keep this in mind and work, working as hard as possible to get the best possible imaginable photos of the couple, their family and friends. I had a renewed purpose and connection to the importance photographs hold, long after our dear ones are gone.

About six months later, I found out that the father of the groom from that same wedding had passed away unexpectedly. Soon after hearing this, the photos I had taken of his dad started to show up on facebook. Again, it was those photos that became super valuable to the couple and their most valuable way to look back on his dad’s life. Reaffirming the mean of what I do. It is with this mindset that I approach each wedding and everything I do.

This reaffirms the meaning of the pictures that I take. 

PHILOSOPHY
People
People are the biggest reason WHY I photograph weddings.

I love many things about photographing weddings. But without the added flavor that is so unique to each couple, I don’t know if I would be a wedding photographer. I truly cherish getting to know the couples that I work with – their story and relationships make my role interesting, dynamic, and fulfilling. 

I take my role as a photographer seriously. I completely understand the importance of the people involved throughout the wedding day.

Stories
You may think you know a standard wedding, but the STORY is always different.

The story of a wedding day is never the same. Every group of people carry a different set of past stories and the next chapter of that story is what plays out on your wedding day.

Focusing on the many unique people throughout your wedding day always excites me to tell the story of you in a fun, dynamic and creative way.

Moments
People + stories = moments.

Small moments string together, comprising the overall wedding day. I capture timeless moments showing beyond how the day looked, but more of how it felt. Moments are fragile and fleeting. I bring a calm presence and eliminate distraction, allowing the moments to flourish.

Candid moments of the day help narrate the true story of your wedding.

    Moments

    This is the most important portfolio gallery.

    The moments during your wedding day are going to be the things you want to relive again, they will make you feel that wedding day love, and they are going to show you the moments you forgot.

    All moments are shot candidly and artfully. They total 90% of the wedding day.

    Creative Wedding Portraits

    I love the creative portrait time on the wedding day or during the day after session. My favorite thing is to create a portrait that is unexpected.

    I keep poses simple so the portraits feel natural almost like moments themselves.

    In the end we'll have portraits that are more art then just a simple portrait.

    Engagements Photos

    I love engagement sessions because it's basically and hour of fun creative portraits while getting to know my couples even more.

    The most common thing I hear at the very start of an engagement session is "We are so nervous.” Following up, ten minutes later by, "this is not that bad… and is actually pretty fun!”
