I am a lover of memories, of all shapes and sizes. While I am also a lover of design and aesthetic, in the world of weddings I value documenting over curating. My favorite photos of my parents are the ones where they were living their life at their fullest in their 20s and 30s, with not a care in the world. And my hope is that the photos we take on your wedding day will be the ones you and your loved ones look back on one day and feel like they are getting to know a side of you they hadn’t seen before.
In other words, I believe that the most meaningful moments are the ones not planned, and my hope is that you will treat me as a friend with a little pocket camera first and foremost.

My style is to capture real emotions, and genuine connections in the most casual and unobtrusive way I can. Because memories fade, i want these photographs to remind you how your life looked, but more importantly how it felt. While I will offer direction when I think it will put you most at ease, whenever I can step back and document your day in a hands off way I will.
i see style as being made up of how i direct you, how i technically shoot, how i edit the photos, and ultimately what my vision is for your final gallery. all of the decisions that are made are made with the sole intent of enhancing how it felt to really be in that moment.
DIRECTING STYLE / In my eyes, the best case scenario of a wedding or session is that you guys will be having so much fun with eachother that you will hardly notice me there. I promise that your favorite photo will come naturally when you least expect it, and it serves as a reminder that you don’t have to do everything right the whole time, so let yourself relax, have fun, and know that the more you two can let go of expectations, the better the photos will turn out.
SHOOTING STYLE / the technical aspect of composing photos is really important to me, and will influence where i recommend we shoot, what time of day, and how i direct you. having said that, i am all for breaking technical rules if it means i can offer you something unique and meaningful. I will shoot on Digital, 35mm film, and polaroids during to add variety and pull out different feelings and colors that were present during the day. I love the clean moments but I also love the messy ones, and I think both are equally important in telling your story.
EDITING STYLE / different people interpret edits in different ways, but from perspective, my editing style is true to life with an artistic touch. My edits are designed to highlight feelings of nostalgia and always aim to create beauty in otherwise under appreciated moments.
FINAL PRODUCT / with all things, consistency is really important to me. i take a lot of time to ensure that each image in your gallery fits seamlessly with the rest. i encourage clients to think of the whole gallery as a movie, and each image as a scene. while each scene may not be the most pivotal, if done right, each will have their place and together they will perfectly tell your story.
