UNIQUE. ARTISTIC. TIMELESS.
captured with a modern flair
While I may be biased, I believe that photography is one of the most important things we have – we often believe that photos are about us and for us, and while they are to an extent…they serve a much greater purpose – they provide our loved ones and future generations with their history. Photos allow our memories to refresh and relive times in our lives that may otherwise become a blur and allow future generations to gain a glimpse into who we were years ago.
I have been professionally documenting lives for 12 years and during that time, I have developed an eye that allows me to capture unique, artistic, and timeless images with a modern flair. I keep my post-processing (i.e. Photoshop skills) simple – allowing quality images with true emotions shine through rather than lose those important things in a fog of the current photo-processing fad. Personally, I love black & white images and would adore an opportunity to work with the right couple to present their wedding day fully in black & white. But don’t worry, if that’s not your preference, you’ll see in my blog that I show a lot of color images.
My approach to photographing your wedding is first to get to know you – this happens with conversations and an engagement session (if possible). We talk together to pre-plan, ensuring that I can incorporate coverage of as many important things as possible. During your wedding day, I will work quietly and discretely to capture candid and photo journalistic moments. But I will also step in to lightly guide you at times when you might need a little direction such as during your Romance Session (photos of just the two of you) or a few group photos.
Photographing weddings has always appealed to me – there’s something magical about being “the eyes” through which this occasion will be remembered for years to come…documenting the official formation of a new family, of families & friends all gathering around in happiness and support of a couple as they pledge themselves to one another.
I thrive in a being “the calm in the storm” – weddings are uncontrolled events, with things sometimes happening differently than what you planned. When things sometimes get hectic and stray from the plan, I remain calm and composed. In addition to my couples thanking me for the fantastic images that I deliver to them, they are also thankful for my calming demeanor as it helps them remain relaxed through the day.
