Philosophy

Whether I’m photographing an engagement session or wedding, business or any other special event, my goal is to capture the personality not only of that event, but the mood of the entire day.

I understand that in the moment, your moment, there are dozens of little memories that can easily be overlooked — the child dancing like crazy and taking command of the dance floor, the infant smiling at the newly married couple, the look in the groom’s eyes as he sees his bride for the first time… I want to capture those moments for you to look back on year after year.

I believe that you deserve to open up your wedding album 30 years from now and to still be proud of what’s inside — real moments, with real emotions and real love. And when you open that album, I want you to vividly remember how much joy there was in celebrating YOUR love. I want you to remember how teary-eyed your mom got when she saw you in your wedding dress for the first time and how much fun everyone had dancing and laughing to the beat of the music. I want you to remember your moments with so much intensity that it transports you back to that day.

I believe that your wedding photos should take your breath away, now and forever.

When the day is over, it’s the moments, the people in your life and your family traditions that matter most. You might stress over which accent colors to use, the centerpieces or whether you should have a unity candle, sand ceremony or tying of the knot to represent your love (and of course,  I will take beautiful images of these choices). But, when your grandchildren open your wedding album and look back in time, it is that love between you that they will treasure and keep in their hearts forever.

My couples trust me with these special moments because they know that I will go above and beyond to capture their celebration. They know that when I deliver their wedding album, they will fall in love all over again. They trust that they can let go and that I will capture all of the things that are important to them. And they know that I want nothing more than to create images that are meaningful to them.

My goal is to document real moments and to make sure you never forget the love that started it all.
