As the photo that I've chosen for the important task of projecting your very first impression depicts, you can expect a damn good time with me behind the camera. I picked up my first camera at 13 (Canon), shot my first wedding at 16, and have captured close to 300 weddings. I learned on film and still shoot with film as well as digital today, more commonly known as Hybrid Wedding Photography. If I had to define my style, I would say that I am a light-obsessed emotional photographer. Not that I sob behind the lens while working (although when the vows are handwritten and the love story is moving, I definitely get teary), but that I live for real, authentic, emotion. I want to capture each couple, exactly as they are, as as joyful as they should be. The struggle is most certainly real with the obsession for finding or creating beautiful lighting, and each one of us is prone to squealing with excitement when we find the "perfect" kind of lighting.
Engagement sessions are my happy place, because it is the time that I get to know my couples, in an element that defines them. Sometimes that means we are bar-hopping on tandem bikes through downtown, eating cotton candy and playing in fun houses at the State Fair, frolicking in orange groves or fields of flowers, others we are on a boat in the middle of the ocean taking photos underwater, and truthfully, I'm down for any adventure you can throw at me (including BASE jumping off a bridge, which to be fair, I've only done once), if it's in the name of a great picture. When I'm not behind the camera, you can usually find me somewhere in the woods with my main squeeze and our beautiful toddler, disconnecting from society, so that I can approach each wedding with a blank creative canvas, ready to be filled with beauty.
