Why wedding photography? Why do I love, love? I know that weddings are not just for you, but also for your growing family.
This is the beginning of your story, where two beautiful families become ONE!
The start of one grand adventure, where memories are made...and generations are documented.
I believe in printing your story because I am in this for your children, their children and THEIR children, etc...
I believe in creating art to look back on. That goofy suit that was TOTALLY in style 20 years prior. How you styled your hair? All the details you spent HOURS planning!
I want to be the photographer that listens to your story, how you met, and who you are as a couple.
I want to document your day in a natural environment that speaks volumes, and truly shows authentic personalities.
All engagement sessions are complementary to most booked wedding packages. Engagement sessions are sometimes referred to as "Get to Know Me" sessions. This is a time where we can goof off, go on an adventure, play around and really get a feel for each others personalities. It's recommended that we find a babysitter to watch your children during this time, so you have time to focus on each other. Don't worry, we will have plenty of time to include the kiddos during the big day!
Ask me how we can make it an adventure session!
I seriously am a huge sucker for all the details! You spent so much time (and money) planning every little detail. The details encompass many memories that remind you of your day and I want you to look back at your album and just remember every.little.detail. You can expect this to be the first thing I focus on while you get ready. I ask that my brides have everything ready for me in a pile before my arrival.
A time for mimosas and girl talk, and I'm not just talking about the guys, haha! (TOTALLY KIDDING by the way) The guys like cigars, watches, sports and ya know….manly stuff! I totally get it. This is a time, where everyone is getting ready. New tags are ripped off, makeup is applied and hair is done! LARGE windows that allow as much natural lighting as possible are my favorite! (Keep this in mind when choosing a location to get ready!) This is also the time where we do a first look with your love.
The moment is finally here. Months of planning have (finally) come down to the final hour! It's in this moment, where it really hits you and nerves are soaring, palms are sweaty, but all that seems to melt away the moment you lock eyes with your future husband. You find yourself slowly walking towards him, with the biggest smile. The second most important moment in your entire life is about to happen! I say second because....well....just wait till you have babies together! <3
This is one of those rare moments where you actually have ALL of your closest family members in the same room with you! I make sure to do my absolute best to make sure all family members are looking sharp and I take three on three (just in case we have blinkers!) I like to do family formals immediately after the ceremony/marriage license signing. This part I like to keep traditional.
A time to be with your girls, to see it all come together, and all your beauty come to life! A moment to share with the boys (I tried saying "Give me your most manly face") and it just resulted in laughter!
Bride and Groom Portraits
It's no secret that bride and groom photos are my favorite part of the day...that and cathedral veils!!! ...but not just because the moments you share on the day your become husband and wife are nothing short of magical, but because these photos are the photos you will share for the rest of you life. I want you to be in your moment together. Let all the feelings really sink in and just be who you two are together...I will handle the rest!
Now, it’s time to PAAAARRRR-TAY! Time to get down and unwind with all of your closest friends and family. Grab a drink and let me capture all of the rest! I would advise friends and family that if they drink too much….and pass out at their table…I WILL take all the photos! ;) All in good fun! I am fully equipped with knowledge and gear to handle any reception venue.
