I am a goofy, friendly, feminist photographer here for all my couples, including my LGBTQIA brothers and sisters. What does that mean? I won't make you conform to any gender roles or bring any preconceived notions about who you are based on your age, race, body type, gender or sexual orientation. I will also do my best to not make you feel like a cheeseball. I want to make great photos of you, your friends, and family. My goal is to celebrate you in a way that feels amazing and honors who you are. Let's create new traditions! Let’s party! The photos will be great. Because I care.
My style is "in this" with you. I'm an observant storyteller and I want it to look like you stepped out of your own body to make these pictures. -- Like a good dream! I shoot every job as if it were my own wedding (you know, if that were possible. lol. -- we are celebrating you as humans and as a couple!). I will deliver photos that make you remember the very best parts of your day and hold that magic indefinitely. I will capture things as they unfold naturally so that you can, above all, truly be in the moment with friends and family. I work with each couple to design an easy plan to achieve that goal. I will be minimally-invasive, supremely focused, and trying not to cry during your vows or dance when the music hits.
