describe your artistic style: I would like to say my style is "vintage-romantic". I guess what that means is a little bit of vintage quality (light/color) but focused on the relationship of the couple. That's the romance. I'll let them be themselves... snuggle, kiss, and be in love. My first objective of any wedding I photograph is that your true personalities shine through the images. I try to capture the love between you in the most honest, flattering and beautiful way I can. Colorful images with lots of natural beauty are what these eyes are drawn to.
what inspires you? I'm a nature lover through and through. I'm inspired by the color and impressive light that is around us every day. In every wedding I photograph I try to draw out as much of the natural background as possible. Whether it be a lovely forest, sandy beach, baby blue sky or even a colorful sun flare.
what do you love about weddings? When I first went into wedding photography years ago I had many people warn me about the horrors and stress of wedding photography. I have found that to be so untrue, and quite the opposite. I'm crazy about weddings, I find that it is truly the happiest day of all and feel quite honored to share it with them. I find it so inspiring how passionate family and friends are to help on the wedding day as much as they possibly can. Bridesmaids pampering the lovely bride like bees-on-honey, dads so emotional they don't know how to sit still, and groomsmen running to the nearest store for the lost bow tie (again). It's so special how everyone joins together to celebrate the love two people have for each other.
what's your travel policy? I live in the Pacific Northwest but travel all over for weddings!
