You believe in your story. I surrender to it. Capture it. And hand it back to you in a way you can remember forever.

You're about to embark on the most wonderful of adventures. Because you're here that tells me you value epic, mind-blowing photography. Well done!

I'm fortunate, and sometimes I have to pinch myself when I think about how much I love what I do. I illustrate every story you trust me with.

Incredible photographs result from a trusted relationship between us. This comes from a friendship, and from time invested in getting to know you, and why you have chosen the different elements that will make up your wedding day. Think of me as a visual biographer of sorts, a narrator, telling your story through the images of your day.

I want you to be blown away by how beautiful you really are, by how beautiful I see you to be.

Lets get started!

+ you are beautiful

A Tragic Loss

by November 4th, 2008 No Comments »

When the phone rang Sunday morning, I didn’t expected to hear tragic news. One of my brides (PK) was calling to tell me her brother-in-law tragically died in an auto accident. He was only 23, and after 2 1/2 months of marriage, her new groom (D) had lost not only his brother, but also his best man. PK was rapidly trying to gather images of her brother-in-law for the funeral.

I can’t seem to shake this couple from my thoughts. I’m struck by not only how fragile life really is, but also how a photograph can suddenly take on new importance. In fact, in some instances, it may be all we have left to remind us of a certain time in our life or a certain person. It reminds me of why I do what I do.

I’m so happy I was able to capture this moment. There are times when I have to shoot within the constraints of a location or set up, which is limiting. But on this particular wedding day, the gift of being in the right place at the right time, with the right access to lighting and position allowed a very precious memory to be preserved forever.

PK and D, I’m so very sorry for your loss.
