"Your work is straight out of a fairytale!"

I look for dramatic light & shadow, wide open spaces, & overlooked corners with beautiful details. I compose every shot as if it would be the one you'd choose to hang on your wall. Every gallery is a unique work of art, thoughtfully made especially for you!

 

My shooting style emphasizes how the subject lives within it's environment, with thoughtfully created compositions. My editing style begins with deepening shadows & popping highlights for a classically dramatic look. My earthy style of toning creates a timeless, romantic vibe & helps to preserve skin tones.

earthy, moody,  & dreamy imagery

You. 

I don't create work to pad my portfolio or change my style to mimic whats on the front page of the magazines. Everything I do is about creating specifically for my client.

I believe in using natural, candid prompting & posing in my sessions to keep things upbeat, fun, & relaxing. No pressure to perform, no fake smiles or laughs, just bringing out the best of you.

Being in front of the lens is intimidating to some, which is why I choose to get to know my client well before I bring out my camera. Together we will plan your session to emphasize exactly what you hope to see looking back at your photos!

Conceptually

I choose to take on no more than 25 weddings per year so I that I can provide the best & most personal client experience possible.

 

Working together, you will also receive access to my carefully curated client guides filled with information such as location ideas, recommended vendors, what to wear, how to prepare for your session,

& much more!

Being organized, efficient, informative & openly communicative are just a few of the standards I hold myself up to.

A professional

My roots are in fine art & because of that I look at the world a little differently than most. I am constantly falling in love with my work, being newly inspired & growing.

 

I regularly participate in lectures, courses & work with my community of photographers to keep myself fresh.

 

No one deserves cookie cutter images, which is why I strive to create completely unique galleries for every single person I work with.

 A friend

I am here to listen.

I am here to laugh, cry & scream out in happiness with you!

My job is more than taking amazing photos for you. It's being your personal hype man, the coordinator that wrangles the wild bridal party, the seamstress to fix your broken zipper, & making sure the DJ knows the right cue to play your entrance song.

This is the beginning of a lifelong friendship & I am here for you every step of the way.
