—  YOUR FOREVER  —

"FOR IT WAS NOT INTO MY EAR YOU WHISPERED, BUT INTO MY HEART.

IT WAS NOT MY LIPS YOU KISSED, BUT MY SOUL." —JUDY GARLAND

Congratulations on your engagement beloved! 

You've been blessed to find the one you simply can't live without.

Your wedding day is the beginning of your forever journey and on that premise alone,

I aim to give you and your spouse-to-be nothing but my very best.

I shoot with my heart and I keep in mind that the work I produce will be cherished by you, your children, your grandchildren, and dear loved ones in the years and decades to come. I keep in mind that you will refer back to this body of work through the good and tough times of your marriage; that this is your story and every image must evoke again the emotions you felt that day. Every detail matters and I'm here for all of it: the engagement collection that announces to the world that you two have a date etched in eternity to become one; all of the various facial expressions he makes when he sees her for the first time; the first kiss as husband and wife; the tear-jerking toasts and first dance; and the exit of your big day into your future. Ultimately, from start to finish, I document this utmost important transitional season of your life as if it were my own.

Let's spend your entire day together shall we? Because when it's all said and done, you'll want to know what you were doing before exchanging I Do's: the fun stuff that happened in your hotel or AirBNB, the grooming process, the laughs, joyful tears, and all things bridal party shenanigans. But you're also going to want to see the tying or zipping of your wedding dress, everyone's reaction to your vows, the way you both walked down the down after being pronounced husband and wife, the rockin' time you all had during your reception.

As you age ever so gracefully, your wedding collection shouldn't. Toward that end, your day is captured with my end result style in mind. I strive to produce a timeless body of work for you and your spouse to enjoy throughout the years composed of natural skin tones with a slightly moody cinematic feel. Not only will these priceless images look great on social media (because Insta right?), but they will remain so full of depth in your heirloom albums and draped on the walls of your home.
