i especially love the effortless + iconic moments, the joy + all the laughter
i dream of couples who want to hug their parents extra tight that day, the ones who dream of timeless days filled with ceremony exits where the applause is deafening + the rose petals are thrown, the flickering of candlesticks all down the tables + the greenery-wrapped decor, the champagne toasts + the tears that go along with them + the bands that help the parties go deep into the night. give me all of it, every damn day.
my approach to photographing weddings is like Type A-control freak mixed with a free spirit; basically, let’s plan the day ahead as best possible so we are left to do nothing but be present in the day, wholeheartedly + without reservation.
i shoot anywhere + everywhere but most importantly i want weddings filled with sentiment + family + meaning.
in my day-to-day life
i’m a wife + momma to a strong-willed + energetic four year old boy and his 1.5 year old sister, who is a chunky, sweet ray of sunshine. (we worked hard for these IVF babes + know how lucky we are.) i drink french press coffee every morning, love shopping for art + talking all things decorating, i chug a green smoothie in the morning but will sneak a cheeseburger any chance that i get + i am a quintessential homebody. and of course, everyday is better when it ends with a beer (an IPA + the hoppier the better).
the commonality with all my brides is that something about my work + who i am + what i love resonates with them; i feel lucky that this often leads to a friendship + cocktail dates where we share our love of the target dollar bin + other fun stuff.
i hope that this tiny look into me + my work inspires you to connect.
