your wedding day happens once…
you deserve to be present for it

 

my philosophy….

My style and workflow emphasizes the fact that your wedding isn’t an editorial photoshoot…it’s a day where you get to celebrate your love and commitment to each other with your loved ones. I am super passionate about working with people of all shapes and sizes – no modeling experience needed here! My goal is to make the day and everything before and after it an experience rather than a task you have to do. I’m here to make the planning and day as stress-free as possible.

Your wedding day isn’t a photoshoot.

It’s about celebrating your love and the gathering of all of your loved ones in one place at one time. It’s not about finding the most “Pinterest-worthy” moment or landscape but capturing your day as it unfolds, whatever that may look like.

Creating the anti-paparazzi experience.

The whole planning process and wedding day should be an experience you never forget. I’m here to make the planning and day as stress-free as possible. On the day of, I’m not there to boss you around or tear you away from your guests if you’d rather be partying down with them. I’m there to serve you and document your day, whatever that looks like.

Here to serve your story, not my own.

I’m the perfection combination of organized and flexible, proactive yet not overbearing, knowledgeable but not bossy, and a comforting presence both with and without a camera in hand. I promise to be transparent with you throughout planning and to show up to your day to serve you and your story, not my own.
