For me, a camera helps to make sense of the world; organizing the chaos of everyday life. My first camera was a vintage Olympus, passed down to me from my mom who had fallen in love with photography through the same lens. I was immediately enthralled with the idea of preserving fleeting moments. I spent my time, eye pressed up against the viewfinder, shooting anything and everything.
Over the past 8 years, I have fallen in love with photography all over again through capturing the unparalleled joy of a wedding day. From the expression on the couples’ faces the first time they see each other, to the unique traditions and beautiful details, to the love of family and friends that fill the day with warmth, this truly cannot be described as a “job.” Documenting this day for my clients is the most fulfilling and inspiring experience and I am truly grateful for the opportunity.
My background in fine art photography helps me capture weddings from a unique perspective. I absolutely adore beautiful natural light, whether its pouring through the windows of an old family home, or in a breathtaking sunset over a glowing tent full of guests celebrating the couple.
My clients are, first and foremost, my friends. Getting to know them in the time leading up to their wedding day is crucial to me as it allows us to establish a level of trust and candidness. That trust and candidness carries through to their wedding day where I am able to capture the intimate and wonderful moments they experience together surrounded by their loved ones.
If this philosophy resonates with you, and you’re in the midst of planning your special day, I’d love to hear from you!
