Whether it’s a walk in the park with your family or the whirlwind of your wedding day, my goal as your photographer is to look for and capture whatever it is that tells your story. As much as I love pretty details and beautiful places, I’m convinced that the most important subjects you can put in an image are people. A photo should make you feel. It should cement a time, place, occasion, or emotion and convey it in ways that memories and words fail.
I LOVE weddings. This photo is one from my own in 2017, shot by the awesome Chris Turner. It was the happiest day of my 25-ish years on this planet.
Weddings are so full of positivity, anticipation, love, tears, laughter, joy, and everything in between, and I feel so privileged to hang out and document the day as it unfolds.
For 90% of the day, I'm laid back and prefer to be out of the way so you can connect with your family and friends and really enjoy the day. I'm a huge fan of natural emotion when it comes time for portraits (that other 10% of the day) and have a bag of tricks to really bring out the feels.
I want to be your friend. I want to have a couple beers, grab a coffee, and really get to know the people I work with. I want to ride that line of professionalism, make jokes, and be more of a friend with a camera than just be referred to as "the photographer". I feel this all leads to more genuine photos as you're a bit more relaxed on the day, and more open to crazy photo ideas that most people would give me weird looks for.
