what should i expect working with you?
The last thing a bride should be worried about is a timelines. Which is why I sit down with each one of my brides and go over their dream day so they can experience a timeline that ISN'T hectic, rushed or overwhelming.
On the day of the wedding:
I don’t believe in forcing moments, but I do believe in creating spaces for moments to happen.
I will totally pose you and your tribe, but I will also watch you move, and talk, and laugh (and maybe even cry). I’ll catch hugs, and glances, and imperfectly crossed legs because your mannerisms and your connections are unique. Your wedding album shouldn’t look like anybody else’s. It is YOUR day, and I just want to be the person you trust to capture it all.
For daily sessions like portraits and lifestyles, I will always start you with a movement. If you have never been in front of a camera before, it can be intimidating-- TRUST ME, I KNOW, but I am here to help you feel comfortable with your person. I will get you running around, dancing, laughing, and everything in between.
I want you to be comfortable, because ultimately when you are comfortable with me, that’s when I can truly start to see the real you and THAT is what I want to capture.
What you'll get:
EARTHY, NATURAL EDITING
In my images, I LOVE recreating a film-like look that still maintains a modern touch.
I'm continuously drawn to natural skin tones, darker shadows and a warm overall feel to each photo.
Unique characteristics to my images: grain for texture, soft contrast for that dreamier feel, cool highlights, and warmer shadows.
I try to maintain the balance of being true to life, while bringing darker touches to my images. This may mean, darker colors worn (purples or dark blues) may sometimes may look darker than original image.
CANDID, CAREFREE POSING
I am all about movement in poses & making you feel comfortable in front of the camera (better yet if you forget I am even here)
We will absolutely get a few posed shots for your grandma (no offence Grandma!), but after that you better believe we are going to frolic (or walk around in a happy manner for the men folk out there) and have fun!
