I love everything about them.
The special details, the raw emotions, the beautiful candidness, the stylish fashions, the unique locations and the wonderful people I meet.
As your special day unfolds there will be a mix of tears, laughter, nerves and most of all happiness. As your photographer my role is to capture all of this in a very natural, fun and artistic way.
I am there to document your day, not just take great photographs.
To get the best results, it’s important that you are totally comfortable with your photographer and relaxed in front of the camera.
I encourage people to forget about the camera, take in the moments, stay connected to each other and don’t let the distractions take those moments away from you both, enjoy every minute as it really does fly and most of all have fun!
There’s nothing I love more than being able to provide a couple with a photography story of their wedding day and knowing that they will love those photos and share them with family and friends.
I look forward to working with you to capture your wedding day and all the special moments.
