You deserve to enjoy your wedding.
You've spent months planning for your wedding day, you deserve to be a part of it. I believe you also deserve a photographer who has the confidence to capture those unforced moments instead of forcing you to spend hours away from your family and friends, Your wedding will be wonderful, and it is worth celebrating. Be there for it. Soak it all up.
Personality over poses.
You are not a prop. Luckily, I'm not the type of photographer who is going to make you pretend to put on a jacket or a dress three times just to get a stiff picture. I'd much rather capture a photo of the groom and groomsmen laughing over a beer, or that "Oh wow...you're about to be married!" look from a bridesmaid to the bride instead of a manufactured moment. I have a knack for creatively capturing the magic of the day and the people between the poses. That gives you the freedom to let your guard down and enjoy the moments. Be you - I'll take care of the rest.
You are more than your shoes.
"My favorite wedding photo is the one of the cufflinks", said no one ever. Those human relationships, vibrant personalities, and heartfelt and quirky moments encompass much of what makes your wedding day memorable. The little details that go into a wedding are a reflection of your personal touches, but you are also so much more than your shoes. So while I will happily document those details for you, I vow not to miss the laughs, tears, whispers, or embraces because I'm off spending 30 minutes of your wedding day photographing those shoes from fourteen angles.
Having photographed hundreds of weddings, (over 200 at last count) if it can happen at a wedding you can bet that I've seen it happen and I've captured amazing moments right through it. Dimly lit churches, freak rainstorms, even a sub-zero degree outdoor winter wedding after dark. That was...something. I've been through it and I haven't missed a beat. There simply is no substitute for experience.
Who am I?
