REAL. INTIMATE. SOULFUL.

I am a storyteller, a friend behind the camera who feels wildly passionate about making you look and feel beautiful on the happiest day of your life. With over 6 years of wedding experience this is more than a job to me - it's a calling to create art that will tell your love story for generations to come. With a click of the shutter, I capture the tears in a father's eyes the first time he sees his daughter in her wedding dress, the nervous hands of a bride ready to walk down the aisle, the tender look between the newlyweds. I am there for the joy, the laughter, and the happy tears and I photograph it all because this is the start of something incredible and I am honored to be a part of it. Documenting real life love stories is what I live to do and I would love to be a part of your happily ever after.

The Candid Difference

 

Out of a sea of wedding photographers, why choose me? I've got a few reasons. . .

1 |  I KNOW THE LIGHT. 

Photography means "painting with light." During a full wedding day, there are a wide variety of lighting situations from blinding midday sun to pitch black reception halls. I know how to use the available light in the best fashion and how to emulate natural looking light with my flashes when the lighting isn't ideal. I create photographs consistent with my style no matter what the lighting conditions are and that control is something I've trained hard on. 

2 |  I AM COOL AS A CUCUMBER. 

Weddings can be a bit stressful. Things don't always go according to the plan and emotions between family members can run high. The good news is this: I'm on your side and I'm always cool and collected. As the oldest of six kids, I am accustomed to chaos and know how to navigate it. I'm a problem solver, peacemaker, and comedian in the face of calamity. I've curled bridesmaid's hair at the last minute and cut groomsmen off from the their flasks. I've rearranged florals and pinned boutineers and prayed with nervous brides. I've taken pictures in all sorts of unexpected weather, once when it was raining cats and dogs. I don't panic and you can depend on me so that you don't need to panic either.

3 |  I MAKE YOU LOOK MAGICAL IN LESS TIME.

Have you ever sat around waiting for the bride and groom to show up to the reception and felt the rumble of your stomach only to know it would be at least another 30 minutes before you would set your eyes on anything delicious? We've all experienced waiting around for photographs to be done so that the celebration can begin and, while I'm not a magician and I can't completely avoid that wait, I do work hard to be efficient so your guests spend less time starving to death and more time celebrating your big day. I do this by working with my couples extensively before the day of their wedding to plan a timeline and shot list so they can provide information to family members on where to be and when. This emphasis on preparation helps us spend more time capturing beautiful moments and less time corralling family members and wondering what shot comes next.
