Your experience with me starts long before you step in front of my lens. I take the time and energy to get to know you & your story, so that I can capture the parts of your relationship that are authentically YOU. So that you can look back on the photos from this season of life, and feel like you're right back in that moment, feeling those same feels. To me, a perfectly posed + still photograph doesn't capture a feeling the way that a candid one can. I direct my couples as if I were directing a movie which creates images that are full of movement and those intimate in-between moments. No awkward prom poses over here, ever. You can expect to walk, run, dance, embrace, play, and laugh. And just FYI - shots of tequila before our session are ALWAYS a yes in my book.
On a day you'll remember forever, you deserve to have people at your side who feel just as excited about your wedding as you do. I'm an empath by nature, and my greatest strength on a wedding day is my ability to feel the emotions of those around me and create a comfortable space. I will do everything in my power to help you have the best day ever. Whether that’s keeping you calm and taking deep breaths with you before your first look, gluing on a stray fake eyelash, or making sure no one forgets to drink water all day long. I will show up for you in whatever way you need me to — because I care.
My job is to not only capture your day authentically but also to edit that way, too. My style is true to life with some extra warmth and a splash of mood. I keep the colors in my photos true to the environment, so if you get married on the beach in the middle of summer, your photos are going to be bright + colorful, just as they were shot. If you get married in the PNW on a moody + rainy day, your photos will reflect that, too. I never want my editing to distract from what really matters - the connection in the images.
It's important that you love your photographer's signature editing style just as much as you love their photos - so grab a glass of wine and browse some full galleries!
