If I could tell you only one thing on the wedding day it would be that I want you to be present with yourself, each other and your people. You hear it a lot, but the wedding day really does fly by. That's why I am a firm believer in living in the moment on your big day. This is a major influence in how I document your wedding moments and how I choose the moments I include in your final gallery. While I do direct for lighting and overall composition, I never want you to feel pulled by a photo timeline the entire wedding day. I want you to laugh the big laughs with your girls, cry as you hug your grandma, dance while you're waiting to get your dress on. All the while, I'll be observing and documenting the real, the raw, the in-between.
I spend the wedding day looking for the in-between moments that bring emotion, context and story telling into your gallery. When I hand pick each photo, I am not simply looking to include a snapshot of the big moments but instead string together each piece of the day as if they were stills pulled from a movie and you're the lead characters. It looks like using light, composition and seemingly insignificant details to create a photo that shows the emotions you were feeling. It looks like slowing down and creating space on your wedding day to take a deep breath, experience the moment and let the emotion fill you up. It looks like helping you to curate your wedding day to be nothing more and nothing less than exactly what you imagined. (because I am a firm believer that a wedding day truly can be whatever you want it to be.)
Making magical moments is a product of not only my years of wedding experience but from your decision to live and let live. I cannot make emotion that isn't there come through your images. I will not manufacture wedding moments for you because the whole purpose of a wedding day is to celebrate the marriage, the coming together, the lives lived as two now made one. When booking me, you are also making a decision to be present and live up your wedding day to fullest - with all the joy, tears, anticipation and celebration. Your presence will make your wedding gallery that much more impactful upon the many many times you'll go through it.

WHY SHOULD WE CHOOSE YOU?
With over 100 weddings worth of experience, I have spent the last three and a half years creating an reliable, easy to work with wedding process. From inquiry to delivery, you will be looked after with care and intention, because I am not simply a photographer. I am a friend, a personal expert to rely on, a problem solver and historian.
HOW DO YOU PROTECT OUR IMAGES?
Starting with utilizing top of the line gear with back ups for everything, from the moment I take the first image your photos are already backed up on two separate SD cards. Once the wedding or session is over, the photos are immediately backed up into three other locations including in the cloud. I have never lost a gallery and plan to keep it that way because your images are of utmost importance to me.
WHAT DO WE NEED TO DO TO BOOK YOU?
First INQUIRE! You can do so here. You can see the process written above but the key parts are a signed contract and paid retainer. These two are the only things that actually lock in your date!
DO YOU OFFER FULLY FILM PACKAGES?
I do offer fully film sessions, but not weddings. I do offer dual film/digital wedding coverage though and that seems to be a really happy medium for me and my clients that love film.
WHAT IF WE HAVE A SPECIFIC VISION FOR OUR SESSION?
That is amazing! I love when my clients have a clear vision that they want to bring to life. In fact, I have inspo calls to create mood boards with every single one of my session clients. This ensures we are able to create the perfect look and vibe for your session as possible.
HOW WILL WE RECEIVE OUR IMAGES?
All galleries are delivered via an online gallery link that allows you to view, download and share with friends.
