I approach weddings with open hands. No shot list or preconceived notion of how it will look. The only expectations I have from my clients is that they truly love each other and understand why we are doing a wedding in the first place. From there I believe good things will naturally fall into place, and a good environment will create happy memories. The goal is not to turn your wedding into a photoshoot, but to treat it as a time where I will come into it as a guest, and integrate myself into the fold so that I can see the true connections...but with a camera.
Our focus is on photographing not just how it looked, but how it felt. We know how to pose you, but prefer to guide you. This way the true you can come out.
Because moments happen in the split second, our shooting is very spontaneous, just like you and your wedding. So it helps when everyone including vendors are on board. You are unique in your own right, and we want you to be you….not the other wedding on Pinterest. We try to make unique piece with art in mind. Our goal is to create not just wedding photos, but art that ranges from documenting candids to guided portraits to the abstract that conveys a feeling. We are not looking to make a catalog of your wedding, we’re aiming to tell a story
We believe true genuine moments cannot be scripted. We give space, but can step in when need be. We will give direction to your family and friends and even you two at times, but instead or trying to manipulate every single moment for a perfect photo, we try to create an environment that is enjoyable, where people can feel like they can let their guard down and laugh and smile genuinely, or cry and let the tears roll.
If at the end of the day your family and friends see us as members of the family, rather than a hired vendor, then we know we’ve done our job. Because it is only then that people can allow us and feel safe enough to give us the privilege to see them as they truly are.
Inquire with me to get more details on our collections and services.
All our collections include an engagement session, hourly coverage, USB drive with high-resolution images and full printing rights.
I have been fortunate enough to have learned from the most humble and incredible artists both as an art student and as a professional. Professors who poured their souls into the well-being of young barely out of teenage age adult, mentors who challenged me to go find the answer instead of simply handing it over, people who have told me the hard things I needed to hear but who also lifted me up when I was on the floor, and seasoned wedding photographers who asked questions about why I do what I do and reframed how I saw the world.
Absolutely. 70-80% of my couples are outside of the state I live in. A travel cost will be provided depending on the location of the wedding. We have traveled from as close to the next state over, to as far as across the ocean for our clients.
Getting ready photos are a huge part of the process. We highly recommend our clients to look at the space they will be getting ready at whether it is at the venue or off site: Does it have good natural light, is it a space they feel good in without clutter on the walls, are there windows to allow for sun to pour in and to look out at the scenery. If you feel your venue may not be a good fit, an AirBnB or a nice spacious hotel room with large windows are always great options for getting ready in.
Yes. We have insurance through the Hartford Insurance Agency, and a copy can be provided for your venue.
Many of my best work has come from working solo. I will bring in a second shooter depending on the details of your wedding.
We work with all sorts of videographers. The most important thing is to make sure that you understand our approach to the wedding, and that the videographer you choose shoots in a similar fashion and has the same goal: To be as unobtrusive as possible and to let the day flow.
