My biggest goal on your wedding day is keeping a calm vibe and staying with you in the spirit of celebration! I recognize that wedding days can get chaotic even with the best planning. I’m here to keep the ball rolling while also honoring the day as it unfolds — spontaneity is the joy of life after all!

My style of shooting is a mix of candids and posed shots. Throughout the day, I focus on capturing candid moments as they happen. However, when it comes time for portraits of you and your new spouse, I like to “work out of poses”. This means that I will get you into a pose to capture beautiful portraits that are well-lit and well-composed and then I will give you prompts to get you moving (and most likely laughing) for natural candids that capture your personality and the spark between the two of you.

WEDDINGS

why i love

For me as a photographer, I want to capture emotions and action in my wedding photos. I’m always chasing beautiful scenery, of course! However, my focus is to create a collection of wedding photos for you that really showcases the dynamic between you and your partner. I think it’s important for each couple to honor their own experiences and celebrate their wedding day in a way that suits their relationship.

My favorite clients have been folks who want to have a laid-back, fun wedding celebration with their closest people. Food, music and laughter are important to my clients. There’s usually dancing, kids running wild and the warm glow on faces around a fire pit on cool Appalachian mountain evenings. My favorite clients are those who remember that the most important part of their wedding day is the heart of their love for each other and for those who gather with them. The rest is just lagniappe (a little something extra).

i'm a romantic at heart. i feel so much gratitude for being able to witness other love stories.
