My Philosophy

There is nothing I love more than a good story, and I approach my photography as visual storytelling. It’s an honor when someone invites me into their lives for a little while, and allows me to capture who they really are in a photograph! My goal is always to create a mirror of sorts that reflects back a part of that couple– his joy, her strength, their trust in each other, a connection that cannot be put into words. When someone lets me in enough to do that, it’s a beautiful gift!

Photographing weddings is absolutely my favorite part of my job. I love every moment of the wedding day! The excitement of the bride as she gets ready, surrounded by her dearest friends. . . the anticipation of the groom as he waits to see his bride for the first time. . . the details, all carefully chosen to tell a story about the couple. . . the pure romance of the first dance. I love it all, and I am passionate about capturing that romance in an artistic way.

The Experience 

The Bridal Consultation

We’ll start by meeting for a bridal consultation, which is a wonderful time for us to get to know each other a bit. We’ll talk about your love story and I’ll start getting to know who you are as a couple! At our consultation, we’ll also begin planning your complimentary engagement session.

The Engagement Session 

Your engagement session will be at a location of your choice. I encourage you to choose a place that has significance to you, somewhere you’ve already shared memories. For example, one of my couples chose for us to dress up and go to a city where they once spent Valentine’s Day. Another one of my couples chose the park where they met. It adds so much romance when the session location is already somewhere that you’ll remember forever! I like to think of the engagement session as an incredibly romantic date, where I get to capture your true connection and who you are as a couple. It is also a great time for us to get to know each other even better and to work together before your wedding day!

The Wedding Day 

Your wedding day will fly by in a blur of love, joy, and romance! I’ll be there capturing every minute for you. Other than the time we set apart for portraits and family formals, I photograph the day in a photojournalistic way, with minimal posing or intrusion. My goal is to simply capture the beauty of the day as it happens. I also pay special attention to photographing all of the details you chose for your day.

The Photographs

Every wedding collection includes your full gallery of high resolution images on USB, along with a print release for self printing, web size digital images for social media sharing, and beautiful, archival quality prints of your choice. I also offer a full line of gorgeous albums, canvases, and specialty products.
