A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME

40.jpg

My wedding style is timeless, natural and fresh. I strive to preserve the memories from the day in a way that will take you back to those moments as you look at them years later. My editing is very clean and soft. I like to get creative capture the images from perspectives that no one else may see. Having fun with clients is my most favorite part of my style. It’s not like we are taking pictures it is like we are just hanging out. The emotions and moments present themselves naturally and we use them to tell the story of your special day.

My journey as a photographer began in 2010 when I began capturing my love for my new baby girl through the lens of my Nikon. I loved being able to preserve those priceless moments.  Not long after my daughter was born, I started receiving requests to capture these moments for other families and couples. Then, in the Summer of 2010 I was approached for my first wedding. Fell in love! Loved everything about photographing weddings.

So now, 100’s of sessions and 50+ weddings later, I am doing what I truly love and providing clients with timeless memories.

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about me. Learn more about wedding day coverage below...


WHAT TO EXPECT

You should expect that the images I create reflect both you as a couple and the events and emotions of your wedding. The best way to do this is to get to know you as a couple before your big day. Whether that be at an Engagement photo session or a informal meet up in person or on the phone, it gives a chance to feel comfortable together and go through your wishes, expectations and time line for the day.

You should also expect that my style of photography will capture the unique moments of your day so beautifully that in years to come you can look through your wedding day album and your memories will come alive. I aim that every photo evokes powerful emotion and every photo tells it’s unique part of your love story.

GETTING READY
Photography coverage begins with details of the Bride’s dress, shoes, jewelry bouquet and special items.  I follow up with shots of the final preparation of the Bride and bridesmaids.
The Bride’s individual portraits are next and special group shots with the bridesmaids. I will then visit the Groom and shoot the Groom’s details, Groom portraits and special group shots with the Groomsmen.

THE FIRST LOOK
Before the ceremony I photograph just the Bride and Groom seeing one another for the very first time. This coverage is optional.

THE CEREMONY
The ceremony site and it’s details will be shot before the Bride makes her entrance. I will be there to capture the grooms reaction along with the emotions of family and friends during the key moments of the service.

THE PHOTOS
Family photos are now taken as the guests are enjoying cocktail hour.
The Bride and Groom portraits then will be followed by photos with the bridal party at our pre discussed locations.

 

THE RECEPTION
The table settings and special details will be shot before the guests enter.
Then the moment of the Bride and Groom’s grand entrance and your first dance together as husband and wife will be captured along with all the key moments of toasts, speeches, cake cutting and the smiles and laughter of friends and family.

THE PARTY
I will be there for the bouquet and garter toss, the dances and to document the enjoyment on the faces of your friends and family as the celebrate your union.
At (insert time here) the photography coverage concludes.
