Intimate & Emotional Wedding Photography

Manifesto

 

I want you to have the photographer of your dreams, even if it’s not me. I want us to connect from our very first interaction because that’s how I ensure that your experience feels like your best day ever. If we don’t connect, that’s okay! This experience is about you.

I truly believe that photography is a form of visual storytelling. I want you to look back at your images years down the road and remember exactly how you felt in that moment. Instead of focusing on perfection, I focus on feeling and connection.

about me

 

I have always been a little rebellious and a lot impulsive, especially as a teenager. In fact, when I was 18, I met James and 6 months later we eloped. Hippie elopements in the woods weren't a thing back then, but getting married in a giant, fancy church with hundreds of people watching wasn't really my thing. I was crazy in love and ready to fly off to a new life with my husband. So, just like that, we did it.

Why am I telling you this? Because I have ONE, I repeat ONE photograph from that day. I have very little to show our girls from the day we said "I do". I don't regret eloping, in fact, elopements are among my favorite things in the world, but I do wish I had photos from that special day.

But that's okay, I got you. Whatever your day looks like, however big or small, let's make sure you have beautiful, authentic images from your day fifteen, twenty, sixty years from now.
