my philosophy

01.

love for my brides

Photographers are usually in this for the same, genuine reason that stems from a passion of capturing a moment that might have otherwise passed one by. We have such strong desire to create a tangible way for our clients to relive their wedding day for years to come. After all, there is nothing quite like revisiting old photographs and feeling yourself absorb into a memory. After shooting 100+ weddings, I’ve felt my reason for chasing this dream evolve and change…and while I absolutely identify with the defining words mentioned above, the truth is I do it for my brides. My brides…otherwise known as my girls. My friends. It’s the text message while dress shopping, adorned in a dress that became the ‘one’ and I feel my excitement rise as each day approaches. Amongst the flowers and the details, I find myself become apart of each of my girls’ weddings…and that in itself makes it so much more meaningful for me.

desire to create moments

My desire for creativity and to provide ’something more’ quickly collided, and ultimately won my career dreams over the cubicle I once found myself sitting in back in 2013. Wedding photography quickly became my speciality and it remains so incredibly special to me to be able to celebrate with my couples on their best day. My approach to each wedding experience can be described with two basic beliefs and guiding principles.  One is to commit myself to those candid moments. I take a photojournalistic approach to my weddings to ensure that those unanticipated and unplanned moments are captured in a natural, intimate way. Secondly, I also strive to bring a creative, editorial edge to each of my weddings. This type of philosophy allows me to create breathtaking images by giving my bride and groom direction and suggestions all while paying close attention to composition and detail.

believer in fairytales

Stylistically, my photography is best described as timeless. Full of love and light, I strive to produce images that have the ability to conjure up a feeling of elegance, beauty, and infatuation. My inspiration stems from my own love story. The butterflies my husband still manages to give me or the way our son looks up at me with so much wonder and innocence…they have taught me so much about love.  It truly is an honor to do what I do. This is so much more than a career for me…it’s truly my passion.  If you never really stopped believing in fairytales, if you’re head over heels in love, and if you’re planning your dream wedding that you want captured and preserved in a beautiful, timeless way…you are in the right place.
