Weddings & Elopements
There are so many reasons why I love weddings; I love all of the little details that you can include, the way you get to express who you are as a couple, and the excitement of having some of your favorite people celebrating with you on your special day!
My job as a photographer is to catch every moment and give you photos to hold dear and cherish the rest of your life.
Having a documentary approach to weddings means capturing small moments that sometimes go unnoticed. I don't force anything, or put you in awkward poses with fake smiles.
I like to document how things naturally unfold, capturing you and your guests interacting with one another while you're at your truest and most relaxed!
This way when you look back at your wedding gallery you will be able to relive every moment and know that nothing was fake or forced. The only time we need to really pose for anything is during the formal portraits - if you choose to do them - I leave that up to you!
My hope for you is that you are too busy making memories by being present in every step of the day, to notice me moving around and snapping.

Wedding photography is a special investment and in my opinion the most important! Your photos will be what you have left after the celebration is over. I have been photographing weddings over 10 years and give consistently beautiful images to all my clients whether its a small backyard wedding or a huge fancy celebration with 300+ guests.
