1. i AM NOT A TRADITIONAL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
My heart is deeply tied up in the million tiny stories that make up a wedding day, the beauty and meaning behind them, and most of all - the people who invite me to be a part. That being said, the way I work is directly influenced by those feelings. I want you to hire me because you love my work and you can see yourself in it, no other reason. If you want someone who will encourage you to be fully yourself, to live in the moment, to walk a little farther into the woods; if you care most about looking back on your photos and seeing the joy and emotion of your favorite people, let's talk about me being your photographer.
2. I DON'T LOVE THE WORD "POSE"
I work largely by watching hard for the meaningful, and it's my job to make sure you're comfortable enough to let that unfold in front of me. My goal is to create a natural atmosphere where you can just be yourselves, and forget that you're having your photo taken, because that's where the magic is. While I definitely get some traditional shots (grandma's going to want those for her mantle and that's important too), my main focus will always be on the in-betweens and candid. I would describe my style as timeless, heartfelt, and natural. Absolutely expect me to ask you to step into the woods, dance, do something silly, and get your shoes dirty (a little or a lot, your call). My best work comes when the people who invite me in trust me enough to let creativity run wild.
3. I WANT TO KNOW YOU, FOR REAL
The thing that I love most about being a photographer is getting to know you, your lives, your personalities, how you interact with one another; and through that, knowing how best to serve you. It's a huge, huge part of how I enter a wedding day. Your wedding photographer will be with you more than anyone else, honestly, and I think you should be able to trust+like them a heck of a lot. I never book a wedding without meeting the couple first (because there's no better way to know if you're a great fit....also coffee is involved).
4. I'm invested
I work hard to make sure that you feel prepared and confident going into your wedding day, whether it's by being available for questions or helping you put together the timeline. I want to help make this experience as stress free and wonderful as possible for you, so that you can focus on just *being*. This isn't a "one day of work and then done" kind of job for me, and I take the entire process so seriously.
My wedding and portrait packages are built around your day/wants so their pricing tends to vary and can be customizable. Contact me even if you don't see what you want, and let's find out if we can make it possible! Wedding days are normally full day coverage, because I've realized that my style works best with a story I can watch from start to finish. Portrait sessions are never rushed, and are all about just having fun together (and usually walking, lots of walking).
WEDDING DAYS START AT $3000 | PORTRAIT SESSIONS START AT $400
