What Makes Me Different?

1) I Take Stress Away

Right from the start, I simply the photography process for you: I pick the perfect location for portraits, give you tips on how to prepare so you can look your best, and I create a photography timeline for your wedding so that you don't have to worry about a thing!

I feel very strongly about my clients feeling comfortable and having fun in their photographs. So, during your session or wedding, I ensure that you feel relaxed- and that each smile is a real one- by making it a genuinely fun experience.

I've focused my 15+ years of experience on learning how to make the experience better for my clients. While shooting, I use prompts, simple games, and a suprisingly robust knowledge of memes and netflix to help you totally forget that I'm holding a camera at all! ;) 

Most of the beatutiful images you see on my site are of people who told me that they're “not photogenic” or “awkward in front of the camera”. Yet, time and time again, they're shocked by how comfortable they felt while I photographed them! You will, too.

2) I rule the light

Sunsets and nightime portraits are a specialty of mine (see some examples here)! I love to squeeze every drop of color from the stunning sunset you'll remember from your wedding. (and sneaking off to steal a few moments with your new wife/husband under a fire-red sky will be just the breath of fresh air you'll need before lighting up the dance floor!)

When I shoot your reception, I make sure to show off your hard work on the decor with gorgeous lighting! I have both the skill and the gear to be able to work in any lighting situation, even ceremony or reception spaces that are dark or present unique challenges. If it rains and location plans change, I will create gorgeous images in any space we use.

All of this adds up to one thing for you: no worries. I can handle what your wedding day dishes out, and I'll create totally unique, stunning images for you.

3) I feel the love

Although my main focus is my couples, I also recognize that a wedding day is not just about the two of you- it's also about sharing the joy of your wedding day with the people you love.

I take extra time during the formal portraits to make sure that your loved ones are relaxed and looking their best. I also stay alert in order to capture those candid moments that just can’t be planned- a stray kiss on the cheek from dad, a peel of laughter from grandma, and those crazy dance moves you know your weirdest, funniest friends will be busting out!

I know that my couples want to look out during thier ceremony and see the faces of the people that have been there for them through thin and thin, ups and downs. Ultimately, that feeling of being surrounded by love is what I aim to capture in a photograph for you to have forever.

Do you want heartfelt photographs that bring your wedding day memories back again and again? If so, I would love to be your photographer. Please contact me right away- I can't wait to hear about your wedding plans!
