Your wedding is a once in a lifetime event.

You’ve been dreaming about it since you were a little girl.

You’ve been planning it for what seems like forever.

You’ll be surrounded by your closest friends, your loved ones... and your new in-laws ;-)

The day will come and go just like that.

That's why photography is important.

While I love shooting my signature style of relaxed portraits... most of the images I will capture at your wedding are of the events of the day... as they unfold, and moments as they naturally occur. 

I won't be bossing you around, telling you what to do, or getting in the way.

I will tell your story in a thoughtful and artful way assuring your memories will last a lifetime.

My goal is to show up at your wedding as if I were an old friend with a fancy camera and I'll do my best to blend in like a fly on the wall.

Of course I'll let you know if I need your attention for a few portraits, but for the most part... I just want you to relax and enjoy your day.

Don't worry about the photos... that's my job (and I'm not worried one little bit!)
