THE EXPERIENCE

Not sure what a photographic experience with me is like? Will it be awkward? Do you have to memorize pinterest poses before? What do you do with your hands?

When you are photographed by me, you can expect to lose track of time because it goes from scary to fun in about 10 minutes flat. I will guide you when you are feeling awkward or insecure in front of the camera. Trust me, you are beautiful and are far more photogenic than you think you are. Through prompts, just enough direction, and beautiful light I will photograph not only breathtaking couples portraits but those really intimate special moments in-between.  The ones that you didn’t even know happened.  The spontaneous moments that just happen organically showcasing your true connection to each other. Telling an authentic, beautiful, sometimes awkward and hilarious story through photos.

 

It is my hope to give everyone in their hands a visual representation of the happiest times in our lives. These moments mean so much over time. If you are like me, when you are feeling a little too much pressure from the world it is so nice and grounding to look back at old photographs at a time my heart was exploding with joy. Or maybe it’s a photo of someone I love dearly. Photographs have the power to take us back.  It is as close to a time machine as we can get, and I am so grateful for this gift I have been given.

Who do I love to photograph?

What I look for in the people I photograph is authenticity. My couples are so excited to get married, even though they already feel married because that love feels so right. The brides that I connect with are artistic, passionate, and get really excited about the candid moments that she missed because she was free to be in the moment. All of my grooms always appreciate my love of keeping everything natural and authentic.

I am looking for couples that are about living life in the present moment, taking it all in, and savoring it. That can't contain their happy tears and aren't ashamed of them! Who wants to make their wedding day and the storytelling images truly reflect who they truly are as a couple and a family.

Photographs are beautiful, but my clients always feel deeply connected to their images upon viewing. The people that I photograph don't care about perfection - because they know that no matter what it doesn't exist and in that freedom, they simply enjoy the hell out of life.

My clients don't care about cussing in front of me. They understand my sarcastic, ridiculously cheesy humor, and it makes them laugh their asses off during their sessions to lighten to mood. During wedding receptions, my clients and their guests embrace me getting in on the dance floor with them while I take some crazy fun party photos.
