I have found that I am able to create some of my best images with couples that I am able to connect with on a personal level. Couples that aren’t afraid to get a little dirty, let their hair blow wild and couples that want to build a friendship. If you’re interested in the perfectly posed shots we probably are not the best fit. If you’re looking for photos that portray your relationship for exactly what it is then let’s chat!

Trust me, there will be tons of laughs, we will find an epic place to explore and we will create intimate images that represent YOU. The photos that you can look back on and remember how you felt in that exact moment standing in front of the love of your life, laughing your ass off because I gave you a goofy prompt. One thing I value is making experiences with people I can connect with on a personal level.

Some of my favorite, most memorable experiences with couples include hiking up different trails right before sunset blasting our favorite songs, jumping in the freezing cold ocean with our clothes on, getting lost in Skyline Drive after dark and shooting in a monsoon that nobody was expecting. If this sounds like you and you can see yourself in my work I would love to dream together and create something incredible. Let’s create magic & memories while adventuring somewhere amazing. 

If there is one piece of advice I could give to any couple getting married it would be to do what you TRULY want. Weddings are usually a huge production and most of the time I notice that couples are feeling super stressed all the way until the open dance floor and that’s not how it has to be. I know it sounds important now but in the end it truly will not matter what colors the table cloths are, who’s sitting where or if you have grass stains on the bottom of your dress. Your wedding day is to celebrate you and the love of your life so make sure you can actually experience it in the moment. So close all of your Pinterest tabs and really think about what YOU want to do, where YOU want to go & who YOU want to celebrate with. That’s what will create the biggest memory that will resonate with you forever & I will be there to document it all because in the end the only tangible item you will have to take away are photographs.
