Connection. Preparation. Celebration.
I believe in developing a sense of connection with my couples. Wedding Photographers spend the most time with couples (outside of the wedding party) on that special day. Knowing/understanding the vision and what they're most excited about aids in achieving a fantastic result. To do this, preparation, communication, and a clear vision are essential. Before the wedding day, we establish precisely what the day will look and feel like. Once these attributes are concrete and our preparation aligns, we get ready to celebrate!
Do you give directions? What about Posing?
Posing/making minor adjustments is one of my favorite aspects of a wedding. My approach is to make minor adjustments solely to highlight my couple's best attributes and their God-given beauty. With my in-depth training and understanding of the psychology behind a stunning photograph make these adjustments look natural and aesthetically pleasing. To me, every human is beautiful, and I take pride in helping that shine brighter.
Clean, elegant, and timeless, with an editorial edge.
Why am I a wedding photographer?
I'm a sucker for romance, true love, and editorial imagery in particular. I appreciate the fine details that make an image stunning or timeless. Being a wedding photographer also means being a portrait, landscape, and product photographer, and all of those niches are aspects I enjoy. It is fast-paced, and every wedding is individualized for each couple. Each couple is authentic, and so many things had to align to make it possible for them to meet/fall in love. This pair is the only two people who have ever existed on earth since the beginning of time. That's beyond special if you ask me. It's about capturing the spark that embodies their unique love, the heart-melting interactions with those they cherish most, and the photos they'll laugh at for years.
