describe your artistic style: I love earthy images, with personality, quirk, and passion. I find that I'm almost always drawn to nature when it comes to photography, and can't get enough of a forest or sweeping vista. I believe that photos should exude personality and that shoots should be fun and creative!
what inspires you? I used to regularly flip through my parents' wedding album as a kid, looking at them as young people on their special day. They were the same pictures every time, but I still loved looking at them. To me, wedding photos are about so much more than just documenting the day. They're an heirloom for generations to come. I'm inspired by every bride and groom. I love their story and how uniquely each wedding comes together, and there's nothing I'd rather do than get to be the photographer who gets to snap all those details-- from the little emotional moments, to the decor, the fashion, and best of all, the love.
what do you love about weddings? Wedding photography perfectly encompasses so much of the photography I adore. Fashion photography, photojournalistic event coverage, portraits, food photography, outdoor photography... I've never felt like one thing truly captures all of my photographic interests the way that weddings do! Plus, it's such an honor to be trusted to photograph one of the biggest days of a couple's life! I love the moments I get to spend with a couple alone on their wedding day, creating images they'll cherish forever.
what's your travel policy? I love travel! No seriously. I got in a '73 Winnebago in Anchorage, AK and drove it across the country and back. I dig travel. No location is too far! I'm currently inspired by Joshua Tree, Iceland, and Alaska!
