I am a mother of 3 amazing little kiddos who keep me on my toes. I am a wife to an incredible man who has supported this dream of mine from day one. He is my rock and my number one fan.
Michael and I had our first son when I realized I needed to purchase a professional camera to really start my photography career. However, as with many new parents, we lacked the funds. So, I took the one thing I owned with value and sold my beautiful engagement ring in order pay for it. Michael supported my decision 100%! I have never once regretted exchanging my engagement ring for a camera. I love my job, I love my couples and am thankful for each one of them for giving me the chance to have the career and life I always dreamed of. (Also, in case you are wondering.... I still love having my original wedding band as my wedding ring).
I love capturing the connection between two people and why your love is special. My images are light and airy, but at the same time they are sharp and crisp. I want your images to be as clean and classic and true to what we are seeing in real life. When years and decades pass, I want your children and grandchildren to be able to flip through your wedding album and oooh and aaah over how dapper grandpa looked and how beautiful you were as a bride. I believe a great wedding photographer is someone that not only know how to take a technically beautiful picture, but also someone that knows how to anticipate those candid and genuine moments on a wedding day.
Having your photograph taken as a couple is all about how the two of you interact together. I never want my couples to feel stiff or posed, but really strive to have your images create an authentic feeling of who you are. I love getting to know my couples through their consultations during the booking process. I want to get a feel of who you are before a camera is ever picked up to ensure the best experience possible! I have plenty of session preparation materials to make sure you feel comfortable and ready for your engagement sessions, formal session and wedding day, so you don't need to worry about a thing when it comes to stepping in from of the camera.
There is something so welcoming about a perfectly placed setting for your guests to sit down to. When friends and family gather around a table to share a meal, it starts the perfect introduction to an evening of celebration and dancing. These are details I love to photograph!
It is the little things you love that make your relationships different from everyone else. It could be as simple as the way he brushes back your hair with a crooked half smile or the subtle laughter you have when he says something funny. These are the best moments.
They sparkle and they shine. That little ring is something that means so much to you and a symbol for the rest of the world. Make sure you do a quick little ring clean before our sessions because I always love the chance to photograph your bling!
I am a flower girl at heart! I am serious! Every wedding photographer has their favorite wedding day details and those sweet smelling florals are mine! Even if your wedding budget is limited, invest in your bridal bouquet. This bouquet will be in more pictures than any other florals!
