more than just photos
First things first, it is important to me that we are the right fit for each other. If you're here, that means you have connected to my work in some way. Having you trust me to capture your love story in a beautifully authentic way is the biggest compliment I could receive.
As your photographer, my goal is to create a unique experience that is worth the investment, rather than just some pretty pictures. In order for me to capture who you to really are together, I need your trust in me, my creative process, and in yourself. Read below about my why, what my photography style is, and what it isn't.
I believe that a picture can tell 1000 words if you are intentional. Telling a story is not carefully curating the perfect picture and placing every last strand of hair in it's proper place. Instead, I take a go with the flow approach where I capture things as they are happening. The the big, the small, and everything in-between. You’ve got to be okay with me capturing the messy, the perfect, the perfectly imperfect, what you remember, and what you missed. I'm there to freeze time when your dad lovingly kisses your cheek before the walk down the aisle, your hubby grabbing your butt, and your grandma shakin' it on the dance floor.
As a storyteller, I will spend time before we ever meet getting to know you through questionnaires, emails, texts, etc. You will get to know me through client guides that I created just for you! That way when we meet, we can already feel like best friends. It's not unheard of for me to comment on your instagram posts, help you button up your dress, or hold a tent while you change your bra. I am not just a photographer, I am a friend by the end. If you're just looking for somehow with a fancy camera who calls themselves a photographer, than I am not your girl, and that's OKAY!
I'm going to be here for you every step of the way. When I say I've got you, I MEAN IT. Need someone to hold your dress? Bring you coffee the day of? Give you a huge hug? Answer any questions you may have?? I'm here for you! I'm the photographer for the wild, the fun, and the truly in love. Want to get married in the middle of the desert? HECK YES!!
