As part of your wedding day, I believe in being more than just a random vendor who shows up to take your photos and leaves. The key to looking natural in photos is a photographer who helps you feel comfortable. The secret to those romantic, intimate moments is a photographer you can trust.
Telling your story honestly and beautifully is just as important as clear communication + being there for you. From booking me to after your wedding, my goal is to make you feel supported every step of the way. Team work makes the dream work. So let's work together to make this an experience of a lifetime.
Honest storytelling is at the root of what I do. Life is messy and imperfect, and I like it that way. I plan to document the real – not just how everything looked, but how it all felt too. The fleeting little moments, captured so you can have those memories forever.
But if there's a moment that you don't know what to do, or you feel awkward in front of the camera, don't worry, I gotchu boo. I know when to direct you, guide you, make you laugh, make it fun – and when to stfu, take a step back, and let you do ya thang. I'm here to document your story in a way that's true to you. These are your memories and your life after all.
I believe in posing that's not stuffy – we're not trying to make you look like two awkward ass kids going to the prom. Unless... you're going for that look. In which case, yes, let's do it.
Posing can be fun, epic, moody, edgy, quiet, artistic – all while feeling comfortable and easy. Intentional, thoughtful poses can describe exactly who you are, without any words.
That's why I take time to get to know who you are as a couple so I can give you direction that works for YOU. You'll look natural, because you'll feel natural.
Your wedding day will have so many sweet moments, and I'll be there to capture it all as they happen. During portraits with limited amounts of time though, my assertive side takes over and I will do everything I can to make sure it's easy and efficient so everyone can get back to the paaartay (I'll see ya on the dance floor!)
After the festivities, you can expect sneak peeks within 3 days, and the entire gallery delivered online within 8 weeks.
My editing style is true to life, with a lil bit of mood. I want to preserve all those yummy colors of the forest, the sunset, the mountains, the water – as well as the colors you intentionally chose for your day. Each session and wedding is edited differently, depending on the lighting and location in order to stay as true to the setting as possible. Most importantly, your skin will look like your skin. We are alllll about that natural look here.
The gallery will have a mix of color + black and white images, and maybe some extra nostalgic film-like edits, if you like that sorta thing ( I do, tell me if you do too!)
When working with me, you can always expect prompt communication, honesty, and transparency. I know I'm not the only person you're working with for your wedding, and all the planning you gotta deal with – so I'm here to make it as easy as possible.
Throughout the planning process, I'll help you with all things photo-related, and have guides and resources on deck. Whether it's location scouting, helping you pick outfits for your engagement session, making suggestions for your wedding timeline, or creating a customized guide for your destination adventure session, I'm here to take care of ya (especially during this pandemic!)
