Wedding photography is my passion, and that is 100% because of the bonds I develop with each of my couples. From the initial consultation to the engagement session to working together on the timeline to offering advice throughout the planning process, I'm happy and honored to be there every step of the way.
People always ask how I manage to capture such iconic, joyful images. My secret? I strive to make each and every couple comfortable by getting to know you, learning your love story, and working with your style and energy. Even the shyest brides and grooms have no problem opening up in front of my camera.
One of the best ways for us to get to know one another is the engagement shoot. (It's also one of my favorite sessions to photograph!) This shoot gives us a chance to talk, practice those perfect smiles, and learn to feel comfortable in front of the camera. Let's face it - most people aren't used to a photographer following them around for a full day, capturing their every move. We're normal people, not celebrities! During the engagement session, we'll figure out which poses come naturally to you and how to best capture your unique personalities. Think of it as a dress rehearsal, except at the end you get beautiful photos you'll treasure forever.
On your wedding day, I'll begin with the bride and stay with her until it's time for the ceremony or the first look. Afterwards, we’ll meet up with the groom and my second shooter, and then you’ll have full coverage for the duration of the day. I’ll be there every step of the way to capture all those joyful and major moments; working from a timeline and shot list that we've perfectly created together. This means you don't have to worry about getting the right shots, sticking to a schedule, or missing the cocktail hour. You'll get to enjoy every moment of your wedding day, and you'll have timeless, emotional, and joyful photographs to help you relive the memories for years to come.
