I started off by taking photos of my daughters, and became OBSESSED with photography. I loved everything about it. The ability to create art and connect with my subjects was fascinating to me. It gave me the creative outlet that I needed. My husband’s cousin happened to be in need of a wedding photographer so I shot my first wedding a week after I bought my little trusty camera. Since there were no other photographers there (it was before the days of smart phones), my images, as amateur as they were, became the only tangible memory from that day. To this day, a family photo I took that day is being proudly displayed at my husband’s grandma’s house.
And now as they say, the rest is history.
I want my clients to look back on one of the biggest days of their lives and relive each and every moment. Every couple deserves their fairytale wedding. I will make sure your wedding is documented in the most beautiful way possible. If it requires me to insert myself in order to make a genuine moment happen, that’s what I will do for my clients. I am a photographer, a director, a curator, and most of all, a story teller for your wedding.
Every wedding is unique, and offers an opportunity for a love story to be told in completely different ways. My job is to document those fleeing in between moments, encapsulate memories in a tangible form, so my clients can pass down their memories for future generations. Through out a typical portrait session, I will lead my clients in different scenarios and have them react to me naturally. Reaction always produces the most genuine emotions, rather than actions. Most of my clients tell me they don’t even feel like it was a portrait session. It felt more like a typical Saturday afternoon stroll in the park with their favorite person.
Being a film photographer, I love the ethereal feeling a film image provokes. Film has made me a better photographer and really forces me to conceptualize an image before shutter is clicked. It offers my clients an ethereal imagery of their wedding that’s hard to duplicate. I transition seamlessly between both digital & film, so my clients get the best of both worlds. It would be an honor to document your story.
