What is my style?
There are certain key ingredients that come together in my style. My choice of top quality Nikon cameras & lenses, appropriate lighting, classy and romantic posing, and tasteful editing, are all apart of achieving this look. I will use natural light while available but as conditions change I will be ready to create and modify lighting with off camera flash. Over time I have come to prefer a very romantic meets organic feel, so I only use flash when necessary.
What is my approach?
A certain amount of the photos will be posed but my goal is to focus more on capturing the natural interactions between you, your family, and guest throughout the day. At times I may gently guide you into a pose but then let you focus on each other for a bit. I take a variety of images so that I cover something that everyone will love. These include candid, fun moments, romantic more serious moments, and of course formal photos. At times I will incorporate artistic or more dramatic and moody shots. Of course I am always open to the clients vision or request as they may arise.
I understand that getting in front of the camera can be nerve-wrecking and most people aren't sure what to do. No worries. I will give you as much guidance as you need and help you focus on each other rather than my lens. I think one of the most important things about your wedding day is to have fun with it because that will come through in the photos. I always say, if you are comfortable, then the picture will be believable. It's my job to help make you more comfortable during your wedding day or portrait session. If that means providing some humor to lighten the mood, or bringing you a drink to keep you hydrated, I'll do just that. I am your photographer, but I am here to serve you in whatever way I can during this momentous occasion. By the way, I am a registered nurse, but let's hope you never need me in this capacity! lol.
Whether it’s engagement sessions or wedding day celebrations, I strive to create beautiful images.
More and more brides these days are avid pinners and use Pinterest for inspiration in planning their wedding day. If this is you, feel free to pass your ideas or must have photos for wedding photography along to me. I don't mind and will try my best to incorporate those into my artistic process throughout the day, when possible. If you don't have an ideas and just want to leave it all up to me, that is fine too.
