I try to do things
a little different
Yeah I can take beautiful images by putting you in front of a rad sunset, that’s not my thing. I could just show up to your wedding and be a fly on the wall and get good shots, that’s just not what I want to do.
I’m not going to let it be an afternoon of super staged, awkward feeling, forced smiles and poses. I’m not going to tell you to tilt you head this way or that way and smile at me on your wedding day while making sure your dress is always laying perfectly flat.
It’s way, way more important to me then that.
If you just want a photographer to show up and get the regular, typical, posed, smiling “perfect looking” shots, we might not be the best fit. If you’re shopping around just trying to find the cheapest deal, trust me, I’m not that. And that’s all okay, because you deserve to have a photographer there that will fit exactly all your wants and needs.
I'm not just some vendor and you're not my just client. We're are now friends. It's cheesy and weird, but I get really invested in my couples because I really do care so much and want to be more than just a photographer to you.
Making a connection and building trust creates all sorts of good things around here.
Let's focus on creating beautiful images together
rather than just 'getting photos over with'.
You know how I keep reaping over and over how important connection between us is to me? It’s because it’s how I can give you my best work. My main focus above all else is to make sure my couples are having a good time. Most my couples show up uneasy saying “sorry, we’re awkward and hate getting our photo taken” (I’m talking about you, guys) and by the end they’re going on about how easy and fun it was. Trust me, getting photos taken doesn’t have to suck or be weird, and I will make sure you have a damn good time.
You probably haven’t been a bride or groom before so you’re piecing all of this stuff out as you go. Since I’ve been to tons of weddings, 'I’m kinda of in the know how when it comes to weddings. The to do’s, don’t do’s, how to save mula, get permits, get the most out of your day, create memories with your friends and family, plan, prepare, and info on how to get ready for your wedding that I’ll share with you. I’m happy to help in any big or little ways that I can to make sure this is a stress-free experience for you!
I want photography to be more than something on your have to check off your list of things to do for your wedding. You don’t realize it now while you’re so focused on centerpieces and who’s sitting where and bridesmaid dresses and florals, but photography is really the only thing that lasts past your wedding day. The number one thing I hear from couples who went cheap on photos for their wedding say they regret it. It’s something that will only increase in value over time as the images get passed down for generations
I'm not going to make you do any corny shit that feels forced.
My style is very focused on real actual moments. Nothing staged or nothing forced. It’s the real, raw, good stuff. I of course will guide you as we shoot so you’re not awkwardly standing there wondering what the heck do, but it’s important to me that you guys are being 100% yourselves and present with one another. This way, we can capture you for who you really are.
We create together.
I DON'T STICK TO ONE Set shooting STYLE
Because every couple's story and personality is so different.
I make sure that the way I interact, capture, and edit really encapsulates who my couples is and how things actually feel. It’s all of the little things that are going to go a long way. The artistic choices I make aren’t to benefit me because these are your memories, not mine. I focus on quality over quantity so we can create something together you’ll value forever.
