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.  My experience and choice of off camera lighting contributes to my stylized and commercial look.  A certain amount of the photos will be posed but my goal is to focus more on capturing the natural interactions between you, your spouse, and 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 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. 

Claire + Travis : I love pulling the couple away from their wedding reception to get a few intimate night portraits. Here at the Crystal Ballroom at the Rice the city lights and views of downtown Houston were perfection!

Moffitt Oaks is one of my favorite Houston wedding venues where you have wide open spaces, beautiful scenery, and a country rustic feel.  Jon and his groomsmen where right at home on their wedding day.

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.  

DON'T FORGET THE LITTLE THINGS

Every good story needs the details and you've spent much time in planning and picking them out.  It's my job to capture your day with all of it's pieces big and small, so that when you look back on this day you can relive each memory as if you were there again. I take just as much pride in the small things and will be creative but gentle with yours.   There is certainly an art to this and at any given wedding you might find me hoisting your dress up into position or meticulously arranging your rings for the perfect shot.   Each new wedding I am blessed to be a part of still excites me today.  I am inspired by the uniqueness of your story and its possibilities!
