- The Studio
"Purely from a photography standpoint, a wedding is like candyland. You have people that look the best they've ever looked, and so much selection and care has gone into every detail. You can point the camera anywhere and it's beautiful. I love that -- that's where the joy lies."
"I record what unfolds before me in a low-key way, concentrating on the moment and making each image as beautiful as possible. What I enjoy most about wedding photography is the excitement of never knowing what's going to happen next and what images you'll find."
"It's about allowing a bride and groom to enjoy the easiest, greatest day of their life without having to stop them -- I'm anticipating what will happen next and positioning myself to be there without affecting the picture at all. I'm capturing the moment in a very natural, candid way."
"Photographing weddings is a wonderful balancing act. I instinctually capture the event through a couple's lens- one that tells their story in a truthful and natural way. But I'm also an artist, so it's important to bring my aesthetic eye to the coverage. When everything comes together, I deliver images that are artistic, honest, and timeless."
"My way of doing things is a little different. It's relaxed and hands-off. Particularly come photoshoot time, people get nervous from the pressure of being in front of the camera -- they're not used to it and I'm well aware -- so that's why it's important for me to distract them and treat it as a space to breathe."
"Since I was young I have always been interested in storytelling. Being an English major in college fueled that passion and now I use my camera to uncover and tell other people's stories. I get inspired hearing my clients' anecdotes about how they met. It is important to me to make meaningful connections even before the wedding and I think that sets people at ease on their big day."
"I think it takes a certain kind of personality to do what we do. Someone willing to go all in, to go deep, to take risks. Because it's not about coverage -- we will get all the moments -- it's about finding and nurturing the moments that truly represent the intensity of the day."
"I love being able to float around a room and capture moments that will make a couple extremely happy. It's about the joy of that room. That's the stuff that I really like to take pictures of."
