Let's capture something special. Something authentic. Not just the same photos shot off Pinterest. :)
Your wedding day!
If you are just price shopping for your wedding or providing a detailed shot list, I cannot promise you the same kind of photos for your wedding as you see throughout my work. The couples I have the privilege of working with, truly value photography and the importance of allowing me to capture the most authentic and creative story of their wedding day. I will most definitely respect you guys wishes as a couple, but my best work definitely comes from a more natural and unbound place.
I can promise that I will always focus on providing the most positive and fun experience, engage with everyone joyfully, and paint a beautiful story of your day.
The only thing I ask that you promise me, is that you'll focus on just having a good a*** time, because you're getting married!
Real Moments With Real People.
A short film I created for Taliah + Christopher seeing their album for the first time.
No matter how amazing or beautiful your wedding photos are, they don't serve their purpose if they are just sitting online, and lost in everyone's feed on social media. Think about the amount of times you see a beautiful photo on Facebook or Instagram, like it, but then within seconds continue scrolling and more than likely never see that photo again.
That shouldn't happen to your most cherished wedding photos. They should be up on your walls, beautifully stored, secured, and visible in an album. They should be in your face every day reminding you why you stepped foot in this journey in the first place.
This is why I'm a wedding photographer who believes in your photos not just being for me, but actually created in print, for you, in a way for you and your spouse to never forget, frequently see, and always remember why you fell in love.
YOUR FREE GUIDE
I find it bizarre how much time the average bride will spend on designing out the look of their ceremony and reception, sending and responding to emails, making and taking calls, food tasting, visiting venues, let's not even talk about the amount of photography websites and portfolios, but spend (and I might be just a tad bit off) little to pretty much zero time on how to not stress having a heart attack throughout the entire process.
I definitely know how intense and overwhelming wedding planning can be, but it really shouldn't feel that way. Being my full-time career, helping couples plan through it all, and being a large part of the equation as a photographer, I really do care about what your journey TO your wedding day feels like, as much as the day of the wedding, and after.
This is why I am providing a FREE GUIDE with incredibly insightful information on planning a "Stress-free Wedding." 5 OF THE BEST ARTICLES in my opinion, with a ton of tips, advice, and experience on stressing LESS, all combined here in one place! Why should probably 900 hours of planning or more leading up to the wedding be so daunting, while roughly 12 hours of the actual wedding day be the most fun, but a blink of an eye. Before, during, and after your big day should be your "Dream Come True", not just 12 hours!
This is not booking me as your wedding photographer I am just simply sending you this guide I put together to help your journey out whether we work together or not! :D
When Kristen and Ty asked me to photograph a maternity session with them, I was very hesitant initially, because I never shoot maternity sessions. I even suggested that they considered finding a photographer who specializes in maternity shoots. Kristin responded that she did not want someone who specializes in maternity sessions, she specifically wanted me to document this chapter in their lives. That she connects with my style and creativity and more importantly trusts me 100%. This not only led me to photograph their session, but also taught me a beautiful lesson. It's not always about who has the best photo out there, (who judges that anyways), it's all about your couples, having the best connection with you, trusting you, and valuing your experience over anything else.
