I’m a firm believer that everyone should have their lives meaningfully documented. Life is happening and with photographs we can do our best to hold onto it. I unfortunately know the feeling of wishing there were more images of someone who's no longer around. My mother would always hide from the camera when her hair wasn't in place or if her clothes didn't match. Now she is gone and photos of her are scarce. We don't consider how important photographs are until they are all we have left, or all we have left behind. who we are and what we do is important, and it is undoubtably worth documenting.
MY FAVORITE PEOPLE TO PHOTOGRAPH
My favorite people to photograph are the ones who are real with themselves and with me. I want to get to know you so that we can create images of your true and transparent self.
If you're getting married - I want to photograph you as the person that your fiancé wants to spend the rest of their life with. I want to know what makes you laugh and what pulls at your heart strings. I want to be able to see what it is about you both that made you fall in love with each other.
If you're a family - I want to be able to step into a-day-in-the-life of who you are, and photograph how you spend your time together as it naturally happens. I enjoy children who play in the dirt, and parents who encourage it and don't care if clothes get dirty or hair gets tangled. I want to spend an afternoon with you and make photos that represent who you are, not those generic "smile at the camera" poses. I want to document people who embrace who they are as individuals. To capture honesty; reflections of the true self.
WHAT TO EXPECT
When I'm about to photograph a new face, almost every person gives a quick disclaimer that they've "never done this before." That's okay! Most people haven't. I take pride in my ability to have an effortless & easy going time together. My style isn't cookie cutter and I won't ask you to do anything that you don't want to do. Instead, I take the time we have together to get to know you and document who you are, as you are. When you feel well, you photograph well. i could talk endlessly about how important having your own personal photographs are, but i’d rather convince you with my camera.
Intimate moments documented & processed with a film-like aesthetic.
I primarily photograph weddings, portraits, & families. However I am always open to discuss any other ideas you may have.
how to book
You can start the conversation by sending me a message via my contact page. If you're interested in wedding photography, I try to make our introductions more personal by meeting in person after our first few emails. We can meet for coffee in the morning, or grab a drink in the evening if that better suits you. If you're not a local, we can chat via phone or video call. I'm a big supporter of personal connections, so I'd like to get to know you and your fiancé as best as possible before photographing your wedding day. Assuming we feel like we're a great fit for each other, I'll need a signed contract and a 25% retainer to officially seal the deal. Bookings get addressed on a first come first serve basis.
