My Style


LIGHTING

I generally use a combination of the following lighting techniques on your wedding day: natural light, off-camera lighting, and on-camera lighting. By using light in different ways I can create images that show off exactly what your wedding day looked like.


EDITING

The way I edit your images has a lot to do with how I light them on your wedding day. That being said, there are 3 things are always consistent with every gallery:

1. Your images will be timeless and beautiful, even if they are lightly styled for today’s trends

2. The colors will be true to what they looked like in real life

3. Your skin tones will be natural


POSING

This is something I spend a lot of time talking about with my couples. In general, I shy away from heavily staged or forced posing on a wedding day. Yes, of course we will create some “smile at the camera” pictures because those are very important. But the real magic happens when you guys let your guard down, focus on one another, and allow real moments to unfold naturally.

All of that being said, I know how it feels to be camera shy and because of that, I work hard to make the photography experience fun and stress-free through pre-session/wedding education. That all starts with the reminder that you are wonderfully made just the way you are. Believing that will always translate beautifully in camera.

More than anything else, I want you to remember how you felt when you look back at your wedding photos. Let’s say it again for my friends in the back. I want you to remember how you felt.

Why? Because photographs are there to remind us of past experiences. So, when you look back at your wedding pictures you should not remember me pushing you into potentially uncomfortable poses that have no meaning to you. Instead, you should remember how your partner’s hand felt holding yours. You should remember how hard you laughed, the way it smelled outside when the wind blew through your hair, and how you felt like you were the luckiest person in the whole wide world because you just married your best friend.


CUSTOM PHOTOGRAPHY TIMELINE

You and your story are unique so your wedding gallery will not look like any other wedding I photograph. That’s why it’s so important for us to get together before your wedding day to talk about what is most important to you when you look at your final wedding pictures.

Once I have a better of idea of what you to see most of, I can create a photography timeline that will allow us enough time to capture it all without feeling photography driven. After I design the timeline we will set up a time to go through it together. That’s when we can make adjustments, add stuff in, and talk about all the “what if’s” so that you know exactly how to prep for and what to expect on your wedding day!
