READ THIS, PRETTY PLEASE
If you want to have a laid back, intimate wedding experience, enjoy the company of sweet friends, celebrate love in a place you love, and have photos that reflect how the day felt, then you’re my kind of people.
Let’s embrace the wind messing up your hair, the bottom of your dress getting dirty, and all the other spontaneous and “imperfect” moments that make your day memorable.
We won’t stop to flatten out your hair or fluff up your dress. I want to keep it natural and honest, just the two of you and your love.
I don’t do posey portraits or the typical “pinterest” shots. I want to capture how you felt, the mood, the “outtakes”, and the unscripted moments.
I will give you direction of course, while photographing what happens naturally as you respond and react, to me and to each other. It’s less about the posing and more about the direction and the action cues I give you. I’ll ask questions, get you talking, get you reminiscing, and bring out those natural responses!
I don’t want it to feel like you’re in front of my camera to pose for me. I want it to feel like we’re all hanging out, talking, and I’m just your typical photographer friend who takes photos of everything!
On your wedding day my style is mostly documentary, capturing the natural moments as they happen. I’ve been called a “little brown ninja” by a few different couples, since, according to them, I hop around catching things unnoticed. I don’t want to step in and change the naturally occurring emotion, I just want to capture it.
And of course, I also shoot the more “formal” family portraits and bridal party shots if you want them!
Absolutely! 99% of my couples tell me they’re awkward having their photo taken, even the ones that might look super hip and natural in my portfolio. I promise. My job is to make you feel comfortable, break that awkward barrier and draw out your genuine selves. So don’t worry, you don’t need to be model pros, you just need to be honest, open, and remember how into each other you are, and you’ll be great!
I live on the road, in my sprinter van. Which means YES I love to travel! Your wedding may or may not require a travel fee, depending on where and when it takes place. So just get in touch and I’ll give you an exact number!

Education is a small part of what I do, but I love it. Weddings are still my top priority, and my biggest passion. The reason I enjoy mentoring is because I wish I had help when I first started, and I really love being able to offer that to new photographers who are finding their way.
