My goal is to give you a thorough account of your entire wedding day made up of images that you're proud to show off now AND 50 years from now. That's why my photography style is current and relevant but will also stand the test of time.

Listen, I know how scary and vulnerable it can feel to be in front of the camera. "Where do I put my hands? How should I smile? Does my arm look okay?"  I have asked all of these questions when getting my photos taken and I totally know how nerve-wracking it can feel.

You know what you want, but you have no idea how to achieve that look. How on Earth are you supposed to look intimate and happy and in love when you know your picture's being taken?! 

Don't you worry — no matter your comfort level, I am a master at helping people actually have fun at their shoots. We will work on poses that look and feel natural so you don't feel awkward or uncomfortable. You WILL be having fun, so that excitement, happiness, and connection will undoubtedly shine through in your images.
