I have been a photographer since I was 14 years old and haven’t put my camera down since. I fell in love with the peace and beauty of creating black and white images in the darkroom. There was just something so intimate about watching your images appear on a piece of paper in a room only lit by red lights. I loved photography so much that I decided to get a degree in Photography.
Over the past 12 years, my photography career has taken me on so many adventures but ultimately it fell into the world of weddings and elopements. There is just something about creating something for someone that has so much meaning to it. I give people tangible memories that bring you back that moment. They give you back people you’ve lost, and remind you of the people you love. As a wedding photographer, I give my couples a beautiful mix of documentary-style photography (Capturing those moments) and truly stunning portraits. I use the environment around us to capture the two of you and make it a piece of art that you will want to hang on your wall forever.
It’s important to me to share a connection with each of my couples, I will be there to hold your hand if you need it during the entire wedding/elopement process. It is important for me to build a strong level of trust with the two of you and your families so that you know I can take the vision you’ve dream of for that perfect wedding day and give it all back to you with my special creative twist. I help each couple on day one with designing a wedding timeline, this way on the day of we will keep to the schedule and make sure you actually get to enjoy your day. We will start our adventure together with an engagement session. This experience together is how I will learn more about you and your story; and it’s how you will become more comfortable with me. This of course leads to epic wedding images which you and your family will treasure forever.
I am a true adventurer, addicted to National Parks, wildlife, and traveling. My adventurous side has brought me to over 50 countries, all 7 continents, and 46 states. I have hiked the Inca trail, snorkeled with orca whales, trekked with gorillas, have froze my toes in both the north and south poles, and spent more hours on safari in Africa than I can count. I have stories upon stories of my adventures and I am always happy to share them all you have to do is ask ! I also give really great honeymoon and travel advice, or I can even take you along with me! Twice a year I bring groups of people to Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda for their first adventure to Africa. There is nothing better then watching a person’s face as they see a wild elephant for the first time.
