My Approach

It's about more than just skill with a camera

I believe in love.  

Everyone’s love story should be told.  My photography focuses on telling the story of the joy, love, and energy on your wedding day.  It tells the story of how you celebrate with each other and your guests, how you laugh with your friends and family, and how you experience the journey of your wedding together.  

It tells your love story.

I believe in providing the best customer service.  Walt Disney is an inspiration to me and how I approach my couples' experience.  He believed in "plussing", going above and beyond what was expected.  I bring a similar to approach to everything I do, which means going above and beyond just creating unforgettable images of your wedding day.  I take care of my couples as well as their family and friends.  

I have been awarded Best of Weddings in The Knot in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018, as well as WeddingWire’s Couples’ Choice Award 2012, 2015, 2016, and 2017.  In 2014 my studio was inducted into The Knot’s “Best of Weddings Hall of Fame.” These are all awards based on reviews our couples have written over the years.

"Act Naturally" is an oxymoron.

When people are asked to stop being themselves and pose, to do things which might feel awkward, that awkward feeling shows in the photographs.  You can tell it's fake, and the couple might even look miserable.

I believe in a more organic approach. Instead of giving people specific motions or poses, I'll suggest movements or interactions that will provide a more natural feel and flow.  The vast majority of my wedding photographs are not staged, they are real. Even the posed "formal" shots are made fun and easy.

The joy, the laughter, the romance, the love, the cherished moments that I capture are not staged.  I tell the real story of your wedding celebration in images that will last forever.  I tell the stories of the funny things that happened, the laughter that was shared, the intimate moments of a newly married couple, and the celebration of their love by family and friends. I tell the whole story of your day, so that years later you can bring yourself right back to the joy and love of that amazing celebration.

So, what is my philosophy on photographing weddings?   I capture the real.  I love Love and absolutely love sharing wedding days with my couples.

"I believe discriminating couples who want their wedding photographs to express the vitality and love of their wedding day select their photographer not just on the quality of the work, but on who the photographer is as people.  I am upbeat and fun when I share your wedding day with you, and in the ways I interact with your guests. I believe the wedding day is the most beautiful celebration of your life, and I am going to make sure your experience with me is professional, comfortable, and the most fun you’ve ever had with a photographer!
