WHY DO I SHOOT WEDDINGS? To be honest, I never thought this is anything I’d do for a living. I worked in film with some rough characters. The idea of working in an industry like weddings never crossed my mind. I shot a friend’s wedding for free years ago as a favor and realized I actually kinda liked it…like a lot.  And it was all downhill from there. A year later I got out of the film industry and started shooting weddings on the regular. Now I’m super lucky to be trusted by some of THE RADDEST couples to document and become a part of their wedding and the moments that lead up to it.

 I typically shoot all over the U.S. and abroad. Uptight and super traditional is not what I do(but I’m happy to do traditional for you). I’m all about a relaxed, fun and adventurous day of shooting. I will probably SWEAR A LITTLE, if you OFFER ME A SHOT I’LL DEFINITELY PARTAKE, and I will most DEFINITELY HIGH FIVE YOU after you walk back down the aisle. To me it’s all about being genuine, honest and fun. But have no fear, I’ll still make sure I get all the important shots, including the family portraits
My methodology is this: IT’S MOST IMPORTANT TO BE AUTHENTIC TO YOURSELVES! When it comes to your wedding I want you to not be afraid to FOLLOW YOUR OWN HEARTS. So many couples feel pressure to have the wedding their family wants them to have when really they just want to elope to Iceland. I vote Iceland. I love my couples because they’re people I connect with on a personal level and not just paycheck. I’d love to GRAB A PINT and just get to know you and your fiancé first if we’re in the area. If not, let’s set up a Skype chat or a phone call(I’m a big believer in a phone conversation vs 20 emails).
