the day you get married

Because really, in all of this planning that you're doing, it's easily forgotten - this isn't just a wedding.

 

This is a marriage.

 

A marriage of families and friends and love - and this idea is what makes weddings more than just a day of gorgeous flowers and pretty views. There's so much more to your event than what it looks like. How does your family interact? Who are the party animals? How many times are you going to cry? (Or attempt not to? But really, just let it happen.)

 

These are the things that are meant to be remembered. But our time together is so much more than hiring a wedding photographer - you're getting a listening ear. A soothing, calming voice of reason. Somebody whose done this before, and can give you advice for literally everything. You're getting an experienced helping hand for buttons, zippers, boutonnieres, and you-name-its. You're getting intimate moments with the love of your life with photographs you didn't even realize were happening.

You're getting the opportunity for hikes and tramps through forests and trails and all of the gorgeous greenery you can imagine. You're getting the person who might start a dance party, and will accidentally stay late because the music is too good. You're getting a listener and an old friend. 

You're getting the photographs of your dreams. 

What They Say

She was perfect! She knew all the right things to do and say to capture great pictures. Even with a group that was as loud and inattentive as ours, she was able to get everyone back in line and organized to have pictures done. She's knowledgeable on where to go to get the best lighting, best angles, and she knows how capture the right moments when we truly express ourselves. She's definitely confident in the work she does and you can tell she knows what she's doing by the way she leads. She's funny and easy to get along with, and always does her job with a full-fledged smile! When you think about having pictures done, sometimes it can be a drag, but she actually made it the opposite of that and we had fun with every minute of it. Excellent photography with passion and professionalism.

the inspiration

It's pretty simple - it's you. It's the hugs you dole out and the soft touches on each others' backs. It's your parents squeezing you so tight it's like you're young again. These are the things I find home in.

And I'll use those to make art for you.

I believe that your story is important and worth telling: as-is. 

I might not take a single photo of you looking at the camera, sorry in advance.

But these aren't just photos of you: they're about you.

Photographs are no longer a sit still look pretty notion. They can be filled with energy and light and warm goodness like never before. And we're going to make that together.

I'll shift my focus to the things you value most: your family, your village, the people you're willing to feed because you love them so much. And I'll spend less time photographing the plates or decor - if at all. Okay, maybe one.

Because ultimately, on your wedding day, you're there to love people, and use things. And I'm there because I completely agree with you and want to make sure that's what you have the biggest pleasure of remembering.

FAQ's

Q: Okay, that's cool, but what if we're really awkward in front of the camera?

A: To be in front of my camera, all you have to do is exist. Your hand doesn't have to go in specific places, your dress doesn't have to be perfectly splayed out, you don't have to be anything you're not. What you're doing right this second is perfect. It's honest enough for me.
