I'm all about authentic, raw moments. I live for capturing unique, one-of-a-kind photos that are brimming with emotion. There is so much beauty in the seemingly ordinary...but really, there is no ordinary. When you found each other, ordinary life transformed into an extraordinary adventure together. I want to capture a snippet of this adventure you're on, this story you are creating together, hand in hand, side by side.
I'm NOT about posing you in (awful, stiff poses) because the last thing I want is for you to feel awkward and uncomfortable with fake smiles and those are not the kinds of photographs any of us want. My approach is relaxed, spontaneous, fun and creative yet unobtrusive. My goal is to capture who you really are as a couple. I love capturing laughter (especially big belly laugh, laughter...snorts and all). The moments that are pure, unfiltered laughter, tears, and even quirky, fun attributes that make you who you are as a couple. THOSE moments are the wonderfully and real moments that make for truly stunning photographs. Those are the moments captured in a photograph that will draw you right back to all the feels you had that day...weeks, months and even years down the road.
Connections are super important to me not only in my photographs but with my couples. My couples are not just clients but I consider them friends. I don't want to just be a "vendor" at your wedding. I want to get to know you as a couple so that I can photograph you as friends not clients. Investing my time getting to know you as a couple and treating you as friends not just "clients" helps me capture those authentic photos...because we are comfortable with each other. Your entire experience matters to me and your photographs matter to me. You are not just another booking on my calendar. Your wedding is a chance for me to use my creativity to capture the beauty that is your life, your love.
I know that going with me is a little bit of an investment but I hope you will invest in my talents just like I will invest myself in your photos. What I can promise you is that I have a crazy strong passion for what I do. I will do what it takes to make sure I deliver epic, heartfelt photographs from your wedding or elopement. I'm going to give you every ounce of my creative self. When I'm lucky enough to be invited into your lives to document your love story, I'm invested in you 100%. I've got you babe and I freaking mean it!
I'm interested in capturing images for the adventurous, the wild-at-heart, the whimsical, fun loving couples who don't mind braving the elements, climbing a mountain, chasing a rainbow or even a sunset. I'm interested in working with couples who want to sneak out of their reception for some photos. I want to photograph love stories that make my heart skip a beat! No matter where your adventurous love story is taking place, from the PNW to Hawaii to a National Park...Count me in! I specialize in adventurous, outdoor weddings and elopements. If you are looking for a photographer who's style is creative, fun, warm, moody, and laid back (all at the same time) then I would LOVE to tell your story in photographs. If you are just looking for another "vendor" who happens to take photos, I'm not the girl for you, and that's totally okay! But if you want epic wedding photos and want to have a great time in the process...I'm your girl!
