describe your artistic style:
When I document a wedding day, I am striving to capture not just the big moments that everyone sees, but also the smaller, in-between moments that are just as special and meaningful. I don't want to just be a photographer for hire. I want to figure you out, as individuals and as a couple. I want to document your day in an artistic and genuine way. I want to form a client-photographer relationship that feels more like a partnership.
I am an artist. But I can't create the art without your help. It is YOUR wedding, after all. I'll need your trust, and I'll need your openness. The rest will take care of itself.
what inspires you?
I am inspired by pure emotion. People who don't hold back are my favorite. Couples who aren't afraid to get dirty or let it all hang out push me to do my very best. I am inspired by great storytelling, candle-lit dinners, and finding quiet perfection in the chaos. I am inspired by you.
what do you love about weddings?
Weddings are my favorite because they're a huge important day full of love, romance, and pure unadulterated fun. The greatest weddings are a culmination of all of the best parts of a couple's personality, rolled into one perfect day of celebration.
How lucky am I to be able to document such an event, for a living!? It's the best.
what's your travel policy?
Have passport, will travel.
