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

Being Thankful

by November 8th, 2010 No Comments »

I received a phone call from Ellen the other day. Her story is amazing, not unlike a lot of the stories of breast cancer survivors. I just love this photo of her and her hubby, by the way.

Ellen and her husband Tim

I met Ellen and her family through the Reid Foundations “I am thankful” campaign. Working with Reid to capture the images and stories of how the hospital and staff has positively influences people’s lives around the Wayne County and surround area, I met a lot of very interesting people with interesting stories. But Ellen captured my heart. Maybe because I’m a mom like her, maybe because I could imagine how she might have felt when she heard her diagnosis, or just maybe it was because we’re really not too far apart in age.

When I talked with Ellen, she mentioned no one had photographed her since her diagnosis. She wouldn’t let them – – until now. And I am so, so honored to be the first once since to capture Ellen and her family together.  Ellen you have an amazing spirit! I think it shows below, don’t you?

This photo was choosen to be the cover shot for the "I am Thankful" campaign book.

Below are the inside pages of the campaign piece and MORE amazing stories of how Reid has touched people’s lives.

This piece/project has been one of my favorites to be a part of. It truly takes a team of story gathers and writers at the Reid Foundation, (a photographer) and a wonderful graphic designer, Janhavi Vora, at CS Kern who did the hard work of bringing the pieces together to make an outstanding publication. Read on!
