Can we make a connection first?

Let’s be real this is a huge investment.

I get that and I want you to be as comfortable and confident as possible when doing it. So what do I do and why should you spend all that money, you ask? I document the moments you don’t see happening. I don’t create them. I only catch them. I have an eye different than yours.

I laugh with you.

I make you feel comfortable even when you have every right to be stressed on your big day. I hug you. I make sure you are as happy as a bird with a french fry. I make sure every detail on my end is taken care of. I want to be considered a friend not just a part of the vendor crew. I want to be the one you run up to and share a funny story with.

I dance at receptions.

I even eat a slice of cake. I dress like a guest because I want to blend in. By the end of our journey, we are friends. We get each others sense of humor and we celebrate your love together. I hate being walked over and bossed around–in fact I don’t let that happen.

I am not everyone’s style.

Nor do I want to be. I do not approach your day like every other wedding. Each couple has their own story and their own aesthetic. I like a cool style. I looveee emotion. Get excited about the shooting with me, you’re spending hard earned cash. Let’s take it slow. This allows so much more creativity. Please oh please don’t pretend like you’re miserable around me. Nothing hinders my creative flow more. There’s nothing like showing up to a shoot after hours of prep time to feel like I’m the weird mom walking in on a rad party. I’m on your team and I want to make it worth it for you. Show off your love. This is your journey and your beloved, let them know how much you cherish them.

My clients are vivacious.

Free-spirited adventurers ready to send tradition down the street. They appreciate the art I provide. They are confident in their skin and love showing that off. They aren’t afraid to step out of the box and dance in public. They appreciate the creative things in life. They are free and they are awesome. Being imperfect is perfectly fine with them.  They are spunky and freaking cute.

If you feel the same connection, then shoot over an email and let’s chat. If it doesn’t work out then I’ll send you to an artist that’s perfect for you.
