The story of a photographer
As a professionally trained photographer and creative visual artist, my job of telling the most beautiful love stories brings me so much fulfillment and joy. I’m hard-working, yet light-hearted. I love music, movies and my two dogs. I’m powered by lots of coffee, dancing in the kitchen and the thrill of my last street photography trip. I love luminous light, beautiful architecture and couples who are deeply in love and who care about creating a magical experience for their wedding day.
What does all of this mean for you? With over 14 years of experience documenting beautiful weddings around the state and numerous destination weddings, you can trust me to never miss those important details, candids and spontaneous moments. You can be sure I’ll direct you effortlessly with a guided approach, to allow for a refined, fine art look that always displays authentic emotion.
what to expect
You’re about to start planning the most important event you’ll ever throw. Let’s make this a journey that’s exciting, personal, unforgettable and a lot of fun.
I create a unique experience for every couple and believe you deserve more than just a wedding photographer. When you work with me, you are investing in someone who gives their all into what they do.
And I am equally as invested in you.
working with me
• Typically I book dates about a year out. If you think you would like to work with me, it’s never to early to reach out and reserve your wedding date. Preparation is key! The second I am hired you have unlimited access to me and we’ll stay in close contact throughout the entire process. There are never too many emails or questions. I love to help and be involved with every detail of your day.
• Loving your images is all I want at the end of the day. If you see a location you love, let me know and we’ll shoot there. If you’ve found inspiration, whether it’s my work or not, I’m always ready to take a look. I want to know you and what you love! • Visual and present in the moment, I love collaborating with couples and capturing moments in an authentic and artful way.
Images don’t just happen, they’re crafted. Whether it’s being in-the-moment to capture that perfect candid, or saying just the right thing to evoke the ideal reaction, my years of experience have taught me how to navigate all the different aspects of a wedding day so I never miss a moment.
When a bride or groom is getting ready, I’ll sometimes clear the room to help them feel more comfortable. We’ll talk about the couple’s history, a story that makes them smile every time they think of each other. Their first kiss, the first time they held hands and the overwhelming emotion that came with the proposal. As they open up about their history, I quietly shoot to get the most authentic smile and joy possible.
When you fly across the United States to Key West or San Diego to exchange your vows on the Ocean Cliffs and if it rains, I promise I won’t miss the 15 seconds where the sun peeks out. We’ll chase the light. We’ll make the most of it. And I’ll work harder than you can imagine to capture magical images of your whole celebration, rain or shine.
