Personal Philosophy and Approach
I DON'T HAVE ONE TYPE OR AN IDEAL CLIENT
I am here to create for anyone who connects with me and trusts me enough to be themselves. I believe there is beauty in diversity and that every story is valuable and unique. When it comes to the couples I meet, what’s of utmost importance to me is to build relationships which are based on genuine disposition and freedom to be oneself without limitation or pretense.
Whether you are having a small, intimate wedding; an elopement at a remote location or a larger gathering; whether you are introverted or extroverted, whether you consider yourself to be a simple or complex being or whether you love or shy away from having your photos taken – I welcome the beauty of it all.
LET’S NOT DO ANYTHING THAT FEELS FORCED
I believe there is greater value and meaning in the un-staged, unforced, non-awkward images than the ones where everything is meticulously staged, static and devoid of any emotion or worse yet, filled with awkward emotion. I am not a photographer who is going to move your hand, your chin or tilt your body to get the image. I am not a total fly on the wall either that is not going to engage and will merely blend into the background hoping something awesome happens. I am also most definitely not going to leave you to flounder, wondering what you should be doing because I know that feeling and it’s not a good one. For creative portraits and throughout the day I balance the truth of the moment with creative vision, optimal lighting and the environment and provide subtle direction at every step which allows you feel like yourself.
How I do things a little differently
ACTS OF SERVICE IS MY LOVE LANGUAGE
FEEL LIKE YOURSELF
& BE YOURSELF
Value family, friendship and honest relationships and you appreciate artistic expression beyond the need for just another wedding vendor. You are dynamic, curious; you have insecurities and fears and you have hopes and dreams. You are not perfect but you are always learning and evolving. You appreciate individuality; you are drawn to photographic style and perspective that embodies traces of simple timelessness and captures mood and feeling as opposed to trends that come and go. You are not afraid to laugh at yourself or to embrace any imperfections that may arise during the day. You are multifaceted and you want to have your personal story documented in a way that is reflective of the real you, in all of your forms.
