Note to self: Wedding Prices above are not final and can be modified to fit your budget and your needs!! Let’s get to doing this thing, however it is you want it done!
I take on a documentary approach when photographing you because my goal is to tell the story of your life. I want to give you my perspective and a piece of today that you can look back on. I want to give you back your moments through my eyes. I am not just your wedding photographer, I am your helper, your shoulder to vent to, and your person 100% of the day. You will receive a gallery of images filled with emotion, composition, and a timelessness that can be enjoyed for decades. I want your story to unfold naturally. While that happens, I will photograph the laughs, the tears, the hugs, and the quiet moments while you and your groom, and everyone else, breathe it all in. I also pull aside the details of the day that you might not have even noticed, and save those for you too.
I want you to invest me, because you better believe I invest in you.
Money is just part of the deal. I want you to invest in me whole-heartedly. ‘Cause I’m also going to invest in you. I put my heart on my sleeve and take your photos personally, because photography’s personal as heck. Aside from the day of photography, I will invest time in helping you decide what to wear for your shoot, what location best fits your landscape dreams, and getting to know you because I want to know you. I want to know details about you, what are your likes and dislikes; this all helps me understand what matters to you, what makes you laugh, and what makes you feel comfortable during our shoot. Who you are matters to me. I’m going to spend hours and days after our session day looking and admiring your faces on my screen while I edit and get the colors right. I’m telling you, this is freaking personal and I will invest my heart and talent and my eventual aching hands into every bit of it.
Just the way you are.
I try to provide a space where you can be comfortable being yourself, and I freaking love photographing what results from that. It’s always new, it’s always beautiful, and it’s always YOU. I want you to be yourself and trust me to do the rest. Be vulnerable with me, and let me photograph that for you.
I want to cater your experience to fit you. What landscape makes your heart beat? Do you like never-ending hills, the desert and Joshua trees, or beaches and coasts? I have the perfect location for you, waiting to be explored by you and your partner… and with me and my camera. I want to photograph all the moments, and in the process help create some.
I’m your photographer, no matter the location. I’m not just for the “wild at heart,” what does your heart beat for? That’s what I want to document, too.
Whether your wedding is on a beach on an island I’ve never heard of before, or in your backyard, or in a popular venue, or in Yosemite, I want in on that love fest. It doesn’t matter to me if your wedding only has 20 guests, or none, or 100 guests you can’t imagine life without, I WANT IN!! What is it that your heart beats for? That’s what I want to photograph for you. Tell me what matters to you, and that will matter to me. I grow to love you and truly care about you because we become friends. However you dream and plan it, I want to document it.
My intention is to give you images that make you feel something, that make you laugh, and cry, to give you photos that have good composition, but some that will probably have none too. You will get crisp images, and you will get some perfect ones too, but some off-focus ones will be part of the deal. If they make me feel something, you’re getting them in your gallery.
It’s personal because the photographs will last forever and be the time capsule back to your day.
As your wedding photographer I will document the small and significant moments of your day. When you pick up the album in your garage where the dust has settled 20 years later, the emotions and connections that filled up your wedding will come flooding back to you. You and your partner will feel the love all over again. Your future children will also be immersed in the images just like I was with my mama’s photo albums. The time capsule that is your day will hold more than just beautiful images, it will hold love and feelings you can relive. This is my goal. Perfection is overrated.
What the heck are you waiting for? Book me. I want you.
*Thank you so much for trusting me to photograph your days and big moments in life! I am honored and can’t wait to start!!
