As a wedding photographer, my role is a special one. I’m being invited to capture two people on the most romantic, joyous day of their lives, and the experience is often just as emotional for me as it is for the couple. There’s something really amazing, a really unique energy, that happens in wedding photography, which is why I’m so happy to be doing this as my life’s art and work. My photos are artistic and in the documentary style, so couples can just live in the moment with one another and be photographed as they really are. I encourage all of my clients to be their true selves, which happens when they feel comfortable with me and the freedom I give them to simply enjoy being with each other on their day.
My love for documentary stems from my history in music photography. My teenage years were spent in the media pits of concert venues. It was a great (and fun) way to learn how to handle even the most awkward of lighting situations and how to capture the fastest, rarest moments on film. Those years taught me that special moments cannot be forced or staged. They have to happen naturally and grabbed at just the right second.
I am an artist and old soul with a sarcastic sense of humor. I love to bike on vintage cruisers, drive through the mountains and scour beaches for sea glass. Every summer I become
a little very addicted to citrus tea and drink it until I’m just plain sick of it. I play music in my car just loud enough to (hopefully) cover the sound of my own voice as I belt out the lyrics with the windows down. I take every opportunity to stare at the night sky and become ridiculously excited each time I spot a shooting star. Some day I will sit on the beach in St. Kitts, visit a castle or two on a foggy afternoon in Ireland, watch the aurora borealis in directly over my head and, although I cannot pronounce it, I will stand before Icelands Eyjafjallajökull volcano in person.
