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

Putting things into perspective…

by March 10th, 2009 No Comments »

Terri Stone, Editor in Chief of CreativePro.com, came out with a thought we could all use reminding of…

It’s hard not to feel down when every possible medium is hammering us with bad economic news. But last week, the radio show “Here and Now” ran a story that, for me at least, puts our current plight in perspective.

The news piece was about the work of Dorothea Lange, an American photographer who lived from May 26, 1895, to October 11, 1965.

Lange originally made her living shooting portraits of wealthy people, but when she saw how the Great Depression was devastating the United States, she took her camera to the street and was hired to document migrant workers’ life under FDR’s New Deal.

Yes, the stock market is hitting new lows every day, and many people are losing their jobs and their homes. And there’s no doubt that some — including those who work the very fields Lange photographed decades ago — live in dire poverty. Yet most of us today are nowhere near the stark destitution Lange chronicled. Hold onto that thought when the next negative headline hits you.

To listen to the inspirational radio piece and see several of Lange’s photos, go to the “Here and Now” Web site. For a full-blown exploration of her images, check out the Library of Congress archive.
