You might be thinking…
How the heck does this work?
Maybe you’ve never gotten married before, or even hired a photographer before. Maybe you don’t know what to look for in a photographer, or you’re worried that you’re awkward and you don’t know what to do with your hands. Here’s the secret though - a good photographer knows how to bring out the best in you.
And the best in you is exactly who you are.
If I told you to stand next to each other in smile, I’d probably just get some awkward looking photos of you looking uncomfortable and feeling even worse. I think we can all agree that none of use want to go back to high school, so let’s ditch the awkward prom poses too.
That’s why I do things
a little differently
You only get one wedding day - make sure it’s everything you’ve ever wanted. Want to elope on top of a mountain? Want a huge wedding with everyone you love? Lots of flowers and decorations? Whatever your thing is, come as you are. Let this day be a reflection of you, and make sure it’s everything you want it to be. Your day is for you - use it to celebrate your love, not to worry about pleasing everyone.
You could have the most beautiful photos in the world
But they wouldn’t mean anything if all you remember when you look at them is how awkward you felt, chances are you won’t love them. That’s why i want to make sure you have a good time and you feel like you can be yourself - because it really is all about the experience. Your wedding is a big deal - and it’s my job to document it accurately and truthfully.
That’s why I take a different approach.
no stiff poses
or forced smiles
Just natural reactions, real moments, and candid photos. Don’t worry - I’ll guide you if you don’t know where to put your hands or which side is your good one, but I won’t make you stand there like a teenager at prom (we’ve all gone through that phase and I don’t think any of us need to go back). I’ll tell you what looks good and what doesn’t (I’ll be nice - promise), and if I ask you to run across a field into the sunset but you hate running (which is fair), I want you to feel like you can tell me. I don’t want to make you do a bunch of things that feel awkward or just aren’t part of who you are.
Are we a match?
