IT IS PERSONAL
I have now been in the biz for a little over 2 years and have shot well over 30 weddings. Each couple has taught me something new and I am eternally grateful for every single one of them for trusting me with the honor of capturing their most special day. Finding a wedding photographer that gets you can be difficult. The most important thing for me when photographing my couples is the bond that I have with them. Connecting with a couple is so so so important in order to ensure that I can truly encompass their love for one another and tell their story in the most honest and artistic way. This is why, before we decide to work together, I would love to take you out for coffee, desserts (bonus points if you love creme brulee!) or take our dogs to the dog park together so that we have a chance to get to know one another. An engagement session is the best opportunity for this because we can get a great idea of how posing and working together will go on the wedding day. It is very important to me to be your friend through this process and not just some stranger with whom you only email back-and-forth for months before finally meeting in person on the day of. Your wedding album will thank you, trust me.
IT IS SO MUCH MORE THAN PRETTY PICTURES
Capturing every moment of your day is a tremendous honor for me and is something that I do not take lightly, however, it also so much more than being behind the camera. I intend to be there for you in so many ways, whether you have bugs caught in your train or you just need someone to take a minute to pause and breathe with. Your wedding day will go so much smoother if you have a photographer with whom you feel comfortable and allow to help you in any way possible. Left your bouquet in the trolley? I can run grab it for you so no body in heels has to. Blisters start forming on your ankles? I will have bandaids for you. You can rest easy knowing that I will be there to serve you AND take beautiful photos at the same time!
IT IS FUN + STRESS-FREE
I will be there to serve you and do everything in my power to ensure a smooth, comfortable, and (most importantly) fun wedding day! I promise not to hog every second of the day to myself. You will have plenty of time to enjoy your wedding day to the fullest. If you need something, I'll be right there but I am not going to overwhelm you. The saddest thing in the world to me is when a couple gets tired of having their photo taken and refuses to pose for anything else. I refuse to let that be the case for us- we will have a great time and I promise not to stick a camera in your face during every second of the day. Besides, often times my favorite photos are the ones you don't know I am taking! Candid. photos. are. my. favorite.
IT IS TIMELESS
You deserve a wedding album that is honest + true to who you are as a couple with editing that is not trendy, won't go out of style and will be cherished in your family for years to come. My couples never receive their wedding albums and think, "Why is my skin so orange?" or "These weren't my wedding colors!". Instead they receive a diligently beautifully captured and edited gallery with all of the love, intimate moments, and tearful laughs in a classically beautiful + elegant way. I prefer a combination of candid portraits with a few elegantly posed romantics thrown in. Real moments are so beautiful to me, so I focus heavily on those. When you show this album to your grandchildren, I want them to be able to feel exactly what it was like to be there with you that day.
