I have been photographing weddings for over a decade, but began to focus on weddings as a specialty about 5 years ago. I have photographed over 100 weddings in my career. I love being able to capture a day that is all about family and love. It is an honor that I take very seriously. Weddings are such a joyous occasion, everyone is happy to be there and I love to be surrounded by happy people! I also find the fast paced nature of wedding photography to be invigorating! It is hard work and I love every minute of it!
The thing that sets me apart from your typical wedding photographer is my ability to get along with everyone! I feel like the best way to make pictures fun, is to MAKE PICTURES FUN!!! So I try to have a good time with everyone so I can catch em smiling:-) but I also know when to stand back and just capture the moment. I also think the couples I have worked with really appreciate the fact that I am very detailed in my posing and directing.
My goal on any wedding day is to create a timeline that allows for you to get the most out of your time with me. While I do focus on portraiture of the bride and groom, the bridal parties, and the couple with their families, I also focus on telling the story of your day and capturing all the events of the wedding celebration. My overall style is a mixture of fine art portraiture and modern storytelling. Proper lighting is crucial for quality wedding photography so I bring my own lights. I use portable flashes that allow me to photograph in darker spaces.
In addition to rocking the photos, nothing on your wedding day is outside of my job description! I will do whatever is necessary to ensure that you don't have to sweat the small stuff on your big day!
