An Epic Wedding Experience

I believe if you love the photos I take but don’t love my experience, I haven’t done my job. What good are beautiful images if the feelings they evoke are negative? I refuse to let that happen on my watch. I provide a cohesive, communicative, and fun experience from the moment you inquire to the moment you drive off to the afterparty. That's my promise to you.

You Deserve the time of your life

Let's get real for a second.

A wedding is about more than just the Pinterest-perfect centerpieces and spotless dresses. It’s about celebrating your love surrounded by the people who love you most in the world. You deserve wedding photos that capture your epic, once-in-a-lifetime day exactly as you lived it—goofy glances, tearful vows, unplanned moments and all. Your choice for a wedding photographer should be someone that fits your style and personality so that your images are captured in the most genuine way possible. I take the time to get to know all my couples so I can produce my most creative work while still being aligned with your style and personality. This process assures that you will be enamored with your photos, allowing you to relive the special day all over again, but from another viewpoint. You and your partner deserve to cherish and remember this incredible experience for the rest of your days. I wouldn't have it any other way! If you're nodding your head yes, you're in the right place.

What makes us a perfect match?

People describe me as edgy, bold, honest, real, ambitious, fearless, and intuitive. I perform at my best working with couples who are adventurous, spontaneous, rule breakers, and down to earth. If this sounds like you, then we’re gonna be fast pals by the end of this wedding adventure.

How I work with my clients

Candid with a hint of direction here and there

Ever had a photographer tell you to “just act natural”? What does that even mean? I’m a pro at giving directions that makes you feel at ease and help bring out your natural emotions. But I’m also not afraid to step back and let the candid magic unfold! In terms of editing, I don’t box myself into the “light and airy” or “dark and moody” categories—I’m somewhere in the middle. I love depth, deep tones, and contrast when editing and am not afraid of a well-placed shadow. It’s sexy! I love to take my natural surroundings into account, and incorporate movement into your images. Whether you’re dancing, skipping, or piggy back riding, we will keep moving. I’ve also been known to crack the occasional dirty joke to get you to loosen up and just have fun!

what to expect

1. Pre Wedding

Prior to your wedding day we'll get together for your engagement session. These sessions last 60-90 minutes and are a lot of fun. We get to know each other, get you comfortable in front of the camera, and share lots of laughs. Maybe even grab a beer afterwards! I highly recommend doing an engagement session because it yields much more relaxed results on the big day.

2. Wedding Prep

A month before the wedding, I’ll send over a questionnaire to begin planning all the little details like a family shot list, vendors, timeline, etc. This helps the big day run smoothly and ensures we are on the same page. I’m always available as a resource should you have questions or need recommendations.

3. Post Wedding

Your full gallery will be ready for you within 4-12 weeks from your wedding date in a personalized online gallery for you to share with your family and friends. If you order an album, we’ll start designing that together, and you can order prints directly from my professional labs.
