Because it's not about just taking photos of how the day looked, its also about telling the story of how the day felt - so that you can share that story for generations to come.
love is magic
I like to say that, until you need me, you can pretend I'm just another guest...blending in.
I know exactly what it feels like to be "on guard" and constantly worried about something, so much so that you lose the moment you're in.
that's why I do my best to create an environment where every single person around me feels comfortable, and safe, and unguarded. Where people feel utterly free to laugh and smile genuinely, or quietly cry and let the tears fall.
Just Be YOU.
I am at your wedding to tell YOUR story. This means a balance of quite a few things.... being spontaneous and candid and abstract, but also gently directing or guiding when needed. It means being visible and invisible all at once. It means that I keep my head on a swivel looking for moments, but I also look to SEE what's important. And most of all, it means making sure you are FREE TO EXPERIENCE your beautiful wedding and be in the MOMENT...not thinking about my camera at all.
A wedding isn't just about one day. It's about kicking off a new chapter in your life -- with an intentional celebration that's all about your love story. The hope is that, when you look back on your photos 5, 10, 30 years from now...they take you right back to that moment.
To give you the attention you deserve, I also keep a limit on how many events I can take on every year. While I wish I could take on every single couple that believes in my work and what I do, I also firmly believe in quality over quantity. I want to show up fresh and focused and give my all, every single time.
