A FINE ART + DOCUMENTARY PHOTOGRAPHY APPROACH TO "I-DO"S
Nearly a decade ago on a sunny beach of Georgia is where I accidentally discovered my calling. Between a hectically run bed and breakfast I was cooking for that offered elopements and a surplus of camera equipment from my then in-progress BFA in Photography, I was heaved in to the whirlwind that is capturing marriages. To make a long story short, the gig at the mismanaged B&B (thankfully) didn't stick, I began freelancing, and haven't looked back since.
Since those sandy sophomore days, I've been honored to meet and photograph a wide array of unique couples from around the world who have had weddings as diverse as they are - soaring cathedrals, exotic beaches, city courthouses, mountain tops, rocky shores, cruising yachts, and yes, even a Renaissance Faire or two. One of the coolest parts about my jobs is that I am granted an incredibly friendly and rich window in to my clients' lives, and it is generally the case that many couples walk away with not only a photographer, but a new buddy. It just makes sense to me that hanging out with folks on one of the biggest days of their lives means I will joyfully stick around for the rest of the ride. I've found this intimate dynamic makes my job easier, and it makes my work better.
With all that I have learned and everyone that I have worked with in these years, two things have stayed absolutely unchanged: my unbridled love of visual storytelling and my ability to positively thrive off of unscripted, off-book, crazy, beautiful, authentic moments. In short, weddings are kind of my thing.
Whatever you've dreamt up for your wedding, you can be sure it will be professionally guided and beautifully captured. I offer a distinctively fresh and fun approach to wedding photography that seamlessly blends candid captures with creative portraiture. It's your wedding, so I invite you to feel the butterflies, delight in the company, be giddy, boogie down, pop the bubbly, laugh and cry - but don't sweat the photography. My goal is for every client to enjoy their day without worry while I document the big moments and little details that'll be cherished for a lifetime. I take immense joy in being able to tell your story of your day from start to finish; I pride myself in my originality and artistic vision, and not by my ability to recreate Pinterest ideas. From the anxiously excited engagement session to the delivery of your wedding album, I truly love collaborating with my clients on creating an energetic and emotional way to look back on your wedding.
