If this is your first time hiring a photographer, enjoy the ride, if not, then you're in for a surprise! I think it's important you know what you’re getting into first to make sure we are a good fit for each other. I want you to be sure the experience that I put my heart and soul into is everything you could dream of and more.
For 1-4 hours I want you to press pause on your crazy life and be present with your partner and/or your babies(furry or not). I want you to remember why these humans mean the world to you, why you fell in love, that they matter and that they are your reason.
I want you to walk away from your session more in love, connected and alive.
During your session we will play games, joke around and get real. I ask you questions that make you guys think, make you hug each other a little tighter, make you want to playfully swat you partner. Any laughing and smiling you do will come naturally. Be prepared to get silly, maybe run around a little and sit and lay all over nature. We have a lot of fun, everyone will enjoy themselves and you'll forget about my camera.
This isn’t going to be a few hours of staged, awkward feeling, forced smiles and poses. I’m not going to be making you to turn to the right a little bit and smile at me on your wedding day while making sure that everything is perfect. It's going to be real, you hair will fly in the wind, you dress might get a little dirty and you won't look perfect.
This is vital! No one feels comfortable in front of the camera... even me. I love having my photo taken by it feel uncomfortable unless the right person makes me feel comfortable. Every person I work with has no idea what to do, where to put their hands and is afraid their photos won't turn out good. You're not alone!
The more we get to know each other, the better the photos are. The more we feel like friends and the trust build the more creative my ideas become. If you trust me and go alone with my crazy ideas or the more I feel comfortable to try new things. You'll here "Oh I have one more idea!" many times. We can create something so unique!
This is probably the first time you're planning a wedding and you have no idea where to start! You think you need to do the traditional ceremony- reception with so and so many people. But guess what?! You can do anything you want! I know that feels overwhelming because now you have so many options!
Whatever you decide is best for you, I am here for you. With advise, ideas, inspiration and with ways to get the best out of your budget. I'm your go to girl for anything! And if I don't know I have the resources to find out!
I want your day to be more then you could ever imagine and I'll do anything to help to make that happen!
I want photography to not just be another thing on your checklist to check off.
You don't realize it now but when the day is over, the decor is put away, the flowers have dies, the food has been eaten and the music has been turned off; the only thing that will last beyond your wedding day is your photography(and Videography if you decide to do that too).
You spend so much time, energy, sweat, tears and money to plan with day and guess what? You will barely see or be able to enjoy most of it because you'll have so much going on, so many people to talk to, things to think about, and you want to have fun!
So that's what I'm there for, to remember all the things you didn't. To capture you enjoying all your hard work.
I got you!
It breaks my heart when I hear couples saying “I wish we had a smaller wedding” or “we wish we would have eloped” or “planning my wedding was the most stressful time of my life". Wanna get married at a music festival? Hell yeah. Or maybe go backpacking through the desert for the weekend and exchange vows on the edge of a cliff? Wear a black wedding dress and a green suit? Maybe have your reception first and say your vows at the end under twinkling lights and the moon? Skip out on all the pressures of a wedding and elope with your best friends?
Whatever it is that would make your day feel like your own, I’m a fully support you and am here to help you every step of the way.
