My Approach…

is so much more than documentation, it’s about the entire experience. I specialize in allowing couples to slow down, relax, and connect on their wedding day to relieve their memories in more ways than just the photographs. From behind the lens I visually narrate the story of the day you got married but my natural intuitive ability to connect and center bride and grooms around taking in all the memories is what makes my approach unique.

The way the air felt on your skin as you waited for your betrothed, to the way your lover smelled as they kissed your neck as if each kiss was a private memory just for you, to the way the champaign bubbled and tasted on your lips as you savored the congratulatory toasts of your closet friends and family.

I want you to drink your entire wedding day in. Because I know just how fleeting this one day is and when you look back through your photographs I want you to be able to relieve the way your wedding day tasted, sounded, smelled, felt, and looked.

My style is relaxed, adventurous, and focused on creating an atmosphere of romance, joy, playfulness, and poignancy.

I BELIEVE THAT GREAT WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY IS MORE THAN JUST GREAT PHOTOS, IT SHOULD ALSO BE A GREAT ALL AROUND EXPERIENCE. BECAUSE THE EXPERIENCE OF GETTING YOUR PHOTOS TAKEN MATTERS.

I know I’m expensive. And I know I’m not the photographer for everyone. And thats ok. I know I’m probably going to be one of the highest expenses on your wedding day. There’s a reason for it. I’m crazy passionate about the people who invite me into one of the most important days of their life to tell their story and I invest my whole heart and soul into my work and each of my couples and I hope you do the same when choosing the right photographer for your big day.

PHOTOGRAPHY FOR THE QUIRKY, THE SOUL SEARCHERS, STAR GAZERS, AND CREATIVE COUPLES


I specialize smaller intimate weddings of 130 people or less whole weekend wedding day rendezvous, and elopement adventures to somewhere magical. I want to get my shoes muddy with you, warm up over sips of coffee together, toast champagne in red solo cups together and capture all the spontaneous, raw, and gritty moments that unfold on your wedding day. 

I want you to remove yourself from the stresses of the wedding production trap of unattainable perfection and feel every emotion that floods over you. I want you to feel connected to your partner and the people who’ve come to celebrate your love. Because in 50 years, you’ll find that getting married was the most perfect moment because it was YOUR moment.

I book a limited number of weddings and elopements each year so that I can be invested and present for you and your story. If this feels like you, and want your wedding experience to be something meaningful, email me and let’s collaborate on something authentically you.
