FIRST THINGS FIRST
Feeling a connection? Or just wanting to hear more about elopements? You're in the right place!
Real quick, here are some things to expect from me so you can be 100% sure you're reaching out to just the right person!
I'm here to help from the get-go!: Not even sure if you want to elope or go small yet? That's okay! The earlier you reach out, the more I'm able to help you through the process.
Laid-back personality: I'm a "let's be friends!" as soon as we meet kind of person. I'm super relaxed when I shoot, and I have no problem taking pauses here and there just to talk or share an embarrassing story or two. Also, don't feel like you need to be formal in your emails with me. I'll be sending my best gifs from the get-go.
Low-key approach: I never want you to feel like your day is a huge production, so I've tailored my approach to be so so simple while giving that super romantic final product. I'm a gear minimalist--I use a few top-of-the-line cameras, lenses, and flashes that I know how to use to their full capability. You won't see any huge off-camera flashes, softboxes, or power chords when you're with me.
Mess is best: I've learned the rules so I can break them. I like a little mood, a little grain, and a few light leaks here and there. I think those small, messy details help convey the mood behind the photograph. I've been photographing for 10 years, and this is the style I've worked really hard to create. If we're using art as analogy, I'm more like Van Gogh and less like Chuck Close.
Where I belong: I do my best work at elopements and intimate weddings where the focus is on the couple and their relationship rather than impressing a big crowd or throwing a rad party. I'm more the "heart to heart with your grandma" kind of girl than the "tequila shots on the party bus" kind of girl.
Marriage matters: I am so passionate about marriage and love and romance and UGH. I just love it all. I think it's incredible, so don't be surprised if I tell you that your love story has me all choked up.
