about

I remember the first wedding that I attended.  I was about 8 years old and had never met the couple before.  I remember following my mom to congratulate the bride after the ceremony.  I remember a lady whispering, shocked that some lipstick from an unknown guest had rubbed off onto the bride's dress.  I remember the bride greeting her friends and family, and I remember thinking that she didn't seem to care one bit about the pink stain on her dress...

 

Years later, I have memories of all the weddings that I've been a part of, as a photographer, a bridesmaid, or a guest.  I remember a bride laughing about how her groom's reckless abandon in life (and with socks) perfectly complimented her practical approach.  I remember a groom tapping his watch jokingly as his bride walked down the aisle, late as usual.  I remember a dad wracked with conflicting emotions, describing through choked back tears how his baby was all grown up, and had found someone whom he already considered to be family.

 

I am a documentary photographer for this reason.  I love these moments and can't wait to show you what I saw at your wedding.  I anticipate the moments before they happen rather than creating them, so that you can focus on dancing with your friends, rather than smiling for the camera.  I hope to be as unobtrusive as possible and love to capture real emotion even in posed photos.  I'd love to provide you with a gorgeous collection of artwork that embodies the true spirit of the day, while leaving you free to make your own memories.
