I have a suspicion that the images that you’ll be savoring for a lifetime, are the ones that show YOU. The real version. With unscripted bear hugs and belly laughs. The images that capture the first day of your marriage, rather than just the pretty things that were there.

I anticipated this about you and crafted a fun a meaningful experience with that in mind.
That's why the time you spend in front of my lens won't feel like a photoshoot. It will be a little refuge from the hustle of planning and bustle of the wedding day. Time where you simply get to love on the person who means the world to you. Couldn't we all use a little more of that?

Less like a photoshoot more like quality time with your favorite person.

You have a beautiful wedding day where you are fully in the moment and I document all of your meaningful memories.

I hand select and fine-tune every image + deliver the gallery 5-6 weeks after the wedding.
