It’s your wedding day, not my photoshoot.
This simple mantra drives me to ...
Care more about your wedding images having an impact in the history of your family than thousands of likes on an Instagram post.
The images I get excited about most are the ones that end up in your album, framed on your wall, and passed around during Thanksgiving to remember relationships with loved ones. My work is not about creating an epic image with you as human props, but to honor and celebrate you, your families, your relationships, and your legacy.
Be inspired by real, unscripted moments.
I won’t ask a groom to take his jacket off and have someone pretend to help him put it on “just for the picture” when it was put on an hour ago. I'd rather show the guys comparing pocket squares with each other, or frantically googling how to tie a double Windsor five minutes before they were supposed to leave. I’ll be with you on the dance floor, moving among the guests during cocktail hour, and being there for all the congratulations and hugs after you've just kissed as newlyweds. I'll laugh when I hear a good joke and applaud with the rest of the guests after an incredible, heartwarming speech.
Encourage you to spend time with your guests instead of posing for photos for another two hours.
After photographing weddings for more than 7 years, I know some of the best ways to maximize your wedding timeline. We’ll work together early on in the process to craft a timeline that allows you to get family photos done so you can still spend time with your college buddies who flew across the country to celebrate with you.
Be more interested in how comfortable your shoes are so that you can dance in them rather than who designed them.
Whether they’re Jimmy Choos or your trusty flats that have never let you down, the only thing I’m concerned about is how you’re enjoying your day on them. Photography is one less thing you’ll have to worry about. Expect prompt communication, a wealth of knowledge and advice, and photographs that will take you back to that historic day of your new family.
If you connect with this approach, please reach out! I’d love to be a part of your wedding.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Are we a good fit? +
If you want to concentrate on enjoying the day and making memories with your loved ones rather than feel like the day is a photo shoot with a photographer telling you what to do all day, we've already got a good thing going on. You’ll have a fantastic and easygoing experience with me - this means reliable communication and full service before and after the wedding, where I will walk you through what to expect for this entire process, and ultimately allow you to enjoy your day without worry. I celebrate and welcome all love.
Do I need a 2nd photographer? +
Tell me about your wedding plans and I’ll help you decide whether your wedding coverage would benefit from a second photographer. To me, the purpose of a second shooter is not simply to "“have more pictures.”
Do you still take posed family portraits? +
Absolutely. Traditional posed family portraits are still important documentations of family history, and often end up in a beautiful frame on a wall to be seen for many years. We will work together to make sure we have a list of family formals that are important to you so that on the wedding day, we can make them quick and painless for everyone.
I’m bad at being in front of the camera / I’m super awkward! +
Me too! I understand how nerve-wracking being in front of a camera can be (I myself get anxious when I know I'm being photographed!). For couples photos and family formals, I will definitely give some direction and guidance so that you look your best, but I won't pull you away from your wedding for 3 hours to take photos. You let me know how much time you'd like for portraits of just the two of you. I recommend at least a solid half hour alone together. The rest of the time, please enjoy your day with your loved ones and just ignore me!
When will I receive my images? +
You'll get to see your online gallery around 3-5 weeks after your wedding. For an average 7 hour wedding, I typically deliver between 400-600 final images. All wedding collections include your un-watermarked high resolution images for your personal use.
How do I secure you for my wedding? +
A 30% non-refundable retainer is required along with a signed contract to officially reserve your date. Everything is done online, and I accept all major credit cards. Send me a message and we can start the booking process!
