Whether you're newly engaged, planning your dream wedding day, or treading through the emotionally charged days of parenthood, your life deserves to be documented in a beautiful and authentic way.
The couples experience is all about YOU GUYS. Who are you as a couple? What do you like to do? Where do you hang out? My goal is to curate an experience with you guys that feels honest and sincere.
I work closely with you to help determine locations or activities that are important to you as a couple; places that mean something to you or invoke a happy or nostalgic feeling. Being comfortable in your location(s) translates through your portraits in so many ways. I also help you determine outfits (if you need it), as well as the perfect time of the day to photograph in order to get the best light.
I bring music along with me to every single session and sometimes (if it's your thing) I'll even bring along a little liquid courage to loosen you up. I know standing in front of a camera is HARD. I get it! However, here's my promise to you. I promise to make it fun. I promise you'll walk away from your session feeling excited to see your portraits as well as feeling like you just had a really amazing date (with me as your 3rd wheel of course).
With nearly 6 years behind me and over 125 weddings under my belt, I've seen a lot of stuff. I bring my knowledge and experience to every single wedding I have the honor of documenting. From elopements and intimate gatherings to raging parties, I'm your girl.
Your wedding day is going to be a collaborative experience with a lot of your vendors, but mostly with me. It’s important that we take time to get to know each other prior to your wedding day so you feel confident and comfortable with me and my experience.
Whether I'm fluffing or bustling your dress, feeding you snacks, grabbing you some Advil, or telling you you look like a rockstar, I'm all in all day. And not just the day of, but also leading up to your wedding. We work closely to help determine the best amount of time to spend on your family, bridal party, and couples portraits as well as the best time within your day to do so.
I’m a doer, a hands-on, fly-on-the-wall, silent cheerleader. I’ll coach you through your day if you need it, or cheer you on to take another shot of tequila. I’m not here to just be another vendor, I want you to rely on me as your friend who just so happens to be a professional wedding photographer.
In my eyes, this relationship is a two-way street; a mutual understanding of each other that will to help create amazing photos from your wedding day.
Family is all about the messy moments and chaos. I say, we embrace it already and get on with it.
As a mom, I am all too familiar with wanting a "perfect portrait", but you know what really moves me? The moments in between the perfect pictures. The messy, unposed, candid, and full of emotion moments that fill your life up.
It's so easy to get pulled away from the honest and raw beauty of your life, but let me tell you, it is beautiful. Every single disheveled second of it. Let go of your expectations and let me in with open arms. I promise there is plenty to document during this time of your lives.
Don't have a perfectly styled home? Most people don't. Do you have some windows with natural light and an open area? Do you have a kitchen? Do you have a bedroom with a big bed? This is all I really need to document your life inside your home. It's the space you've created to hold your memories, the walls you've filled with photographs, the couch your kids have jumped off, the stairs you watched your babies climb. This is your life and it deserves to be documented and saved forever. Don't worry about your kids. Kids will be kids. Let's let them be themselves so you can hold onto these memories exactly as they are.
