Documenting moments that only belong to you.

I do things a bit differently --

Take some time to read through my approach and what to expect to see if we’re the right fit for each other. I would much rather you go with another photographer in order for you to get the best possible experience, because the experience you have with your photographer strongly reflects how you feel about your photos later on.

I am there with you and for you every step of the way, so we need to like, nay, love each other in order for this to be done right.

I want us both to be so excited about working together that we are doing happy dances in our living rooms.

That's what you deserve from a photographer.

I am not your vendor, I am your friend.

I get really invested in my couples because I really do care so so much and want to be more than just a photographer to you. Let's focus on creating together rather than just 'getting photos done'. I am very close to all of the people that invite me to walk this time with them.

Connection is so important to me, because photography is nothing if not personal and we need to like, nay, love each other in order for this to be done right. My main focus above all else is that my couples are having a good time. Most of my couples show up uneasy saying “Sorry, we’re awkward and hate getting our photo taken”, and by the end they’re talking about how easy and fun it was.

Trust me, getting photos taken doesn’t have to suck or be awkward in any way, and I will make sure you have a damn good time.

My style is heavily focused on real moments.

I want this to feel and look like you, so I won't make you do anything that feels cheesy or forced. No poses, no discomfort, no awkward half-smiles.

It's that real, authentic good stuff.

Although I can take beautiful images putting you in front of a cool sunset, that’s not my jam. Even though I could just show up to your wedding and be a fly on the wall and get good shots, that’s just not who I am. This isn’t going to be an afternoon full of posing. I’m not going to be making you to turn to the right a little bit and smile at me on your wedding day, while making sure your dress is always laying perfectly flat. It’s way, way more than that to me. If you’re just wanting a photographer to show up and get the typical, posed, smiling “perfect looking” shots, we might not be the best fit.

Photographs are something that will only increase in value over time as the images get passed down for generations. you’re shopping around just trying to find the cheapest deal, trust me, I’m not that. And that’s okay because you deserve to have a photographer that will fit all of your wants and needs — including your budget. I’m passionate about capturing couples who believe in the value of meaningful, authentic photographs that will last a lifetime.

I want photography to be more than something on your checklist of things to do for your wedding. You don’t realize it now while you’re focused on centerpieces, who’s sitting where, bridesmaid dresses, and florals — but photography is really the only thing that lasts past your wedding day. The number one thing I hear from couples who went cheap on photos for their wedding is how much they regret it.
