I was recently sitting in my Grandma’s living room looking at all of the pictures she had collected over
the years. Frames in various sizes and shapes scattered through out her tiny living room. Everything from photos of her own wedding day, pictures of her daughters, her seven grandchildren and her
grandchildren on their wedding days.
You see, Photos are Timeless. They last Forever; Not Affected by Time; Everlasting. I love that my job is all about preserving those memories that will last for generations to come. On your wedding day, I am more than just your photographer. I'm a storyteller. I photograph every detail from the jewelry you wore to the first kiss as Husband and Wife.
My goal is to make you forget you are in front of the camera and to just enjoy the experience. It would be my honor to be the person who captures the love and emotion on the biggest day of your life. I want to capture those real, raw and authentic moments. Photos so real that you are instantly reminded of the way you felt on that day.
The "AR" Couple
They are the modern chic couple that believes in an everlasting love. They believe marriage is a gift and choose to always put each other first.
They believe in a strong community of family and friends. They are extremely loyal and would do anything for the people they love. They rather have a handful of lifelong friendships than to be the "life of the party."
Slow dancing in the kitchen is probably a regular occurrence for them. They enjoy cooking new meals and going on long walks together.
They are genuine, authentic, kind and the best of friends. They believe that love always protects,
always trusts, always hopes and always perseveres.
They believe that love N E V E R fails.
Over the past years of wedding photography, I learned that the best experiences happen when my couples and I really click. Having that foundation of a personal connection creates more organic and authentic moments. And those are the moments that will be cherished forever. Those are my hopes for you when choosing the perfect wedding photographer!
