I do things the only way I know – with full blown enthusiasm. I’m loud, excited, and will be fully invested in you and your love story! Take some time to read what to expect to see if we’re the right fit for each other.
No hard feelings if you decide we aren’t the right fit for each other, you deserve the best experience. The experience you have with a photographer strongly influences how you feel about your photos later on. And you should love both.
I’m not going to show up at our session or your wedding and pose you perfectly while having you look directly at me and smile. Because poses aren’t real moments. We’re going to get to know each other and do things that make you feel. Nothing forced, nothing fake. If you want to show up to only smile at the camera or get perfectly posed images, I may not be the photographer for you.
Listen, anyone can have a traditional wedding. If that’s your jam then great! But don’t feel like you need to follow ‘traditions’ - make your own! If you want to get married hiking through The Enchantments for three days, great! If you want ice cream sandwiches instead of cake, awesome! If you want 10 of your closest friends to celebrate with you over a campfire on the beach, amazing! I want you to look back at your photos one week, one year, and one decade later and feel like you’re there again - whatever your truth looks like. Because that’s what this is all about.
Like I have said 1000 times before, I will be fully invested in you. If you’re here to just show up for cute pics to post on Instagram this isn’t going to work. We’re friends now, so we’ll be creating magic together! I want you to have a good time! Most of my couples show up saying something along the lines of “we’re awkward in front of the camera” or “you’ll have to help us” but they leave saying they had fun and that it was so easy. You’re going to fall in love all over again.
You probably haven’t planned a wedding or elopement before so you’re figuring all of this stuff out as you go. Since I’ve been to hundreds of weddings, I’m knowledgeable when it comes to all of the details. The dos and don’ts, how to save $$$, get permits, plan, prepare, and all kinds of other info on how to get ready for your wedding. I’m ready to help in any big or little ways that I can to make sure this is a stress-free experience for you!
My particular style of photography and editing is very much all about who my couples are and how the moment felt. If you’re looking for a photographer who will make artistic choices outside of their normal style - I’m not that photographer. I will make choices that only benefit you and your lasting memories that we created together.
