I want to be the kind of photographer who says something.
Anyone can learn to take a decent picture. Anyone can learn shutter speed, lenses, and push a button.
I want to make photographs.
Artful photographs that tell a story; the whole story.
More love soaked and dreamy than you ever imagined; more authentic, raw, and honest too.
I want to give the couples who entrust me with their wedding day a gift greater than simply “documenting” their day. I want to give a three hundred and sixty degree view that includes everything. That doesn’t mean thousands of images. It means the whole truth–something so much bigger than the two of them, but then, something as small and simple as a whisper in her ear, a smear of lipstick on his cheek.
If you can sacrifice the need to control, the worry, and just trust, this is where we’re going together. Complete authenticity that makes for the most beautiful photographs because: reality is the most beautiful.
I’m still learning and refining. Still teaching my eyes and my heart to be open to it all, the bigness and the smallness of every thing, and that is what I have to offer. My open eyes and my open heart.
I don’t do boring, cookie-cutter, or anyone-could-have-taken-that. I do passionate, romantic, authentic, soulful.
I can’t do this in the best way at big traditional weddings with gargantuan guest lists and a checklist of every photo you want. I will take every photo on your list but I won’t make magic, and I don’t want anything less than magic for you on your wedding day.
So if you get a feeling in your gut, the same flavor of butterflies your love gives you, when you look at these photos, I would be absolutely honored to photograph your best day. If these photos stir something in you, they move you, and maybe you can’t even say why–then this dream is for you.
And then, like any incredible story, these images will be ones you can look at for the rest of your days and feel something.
