Worried about feeling too posed on your wedding day? Have you ever described yourself as being “awkward” in front of the camera? You’re in the right place.
This is your WEDDING. The best day of your life. It’ll be filled with all sorts of emotions, and it should be documented in a way that makes you remember every single one of them. You should feel comfortable enough to be completely and unapologetically yourself from start to finish. And it should be FUN!
That’s where I come in. My photography is candid, real, and designed to put your love in the spotlight. So you don’t have to worry about anything other than getting married.

What inspired you to become a wedding photographer?
I always felt my purpose was to serve others in some way, but it took me a while to figure out how I was meant to do that. I was working my corporate job as a chemist, the thing everyone expected me to do, and truthfully was hating life. Every day was a struggle, and I just knew it wasn’t right for me. I thought back to my days as a barista in college, and I remembered how fulfilling it was to see so many people and brighten their day with something as simple as a cup of coffee. It sounds silly, but this is what motivated me to make a change. I always liked photography as a hobby, but doubted myself for years, never thinking I could actually make it happen as a career. But I finally bet on myself in 2020 and decided to use my passion to serve people on one of the most important days of their lives: their wedding day.
How would you describe your photography style?
My shooting style is more candid and in the moment, but I think it’s important to include some traditional and timeless images as well because these are typically the ones your family members will want to print and hang up. My goal is to create images that make you remember how you felt in that moment that also represent who you are as a couple. As far as my editing, I describe my style as true to color but a little on the warmer side color wise.
How do you ensure that your clients feel comfortable and relaxed during the photo shoot?
I always encourage everyone to do what they need to do before the session to make sure they’re as relaxed as possible, but I also do my best to keep things casual while we’re shooting. I try to keep the focus between the two of you and not so much on me, and I encourage interacting with your partner rather than my camera. If I want you to look at me, I’ll tell you, but this is about you and your relationship, so we should make this silly and fun and goofy! We’ll do a lot more movement based poses rather than static ones to keep you in the moment.
How do you ensure that you capture all of the important moments on the wedding day?
I will send you all sorts of planning resources after booking so you can make sure you plan accordingly for all the shots you want, but I also have a sit down meeting with all of my couples before their day and come up with a detailed timeline. This way, we all know what’s happening when and we can list out what photos you want during each chunk of the day. I have a second photographer with me when needed and use two cameras during the ceremony to make sure I don’t miss anything! I have backups on backups of all my gear so if something breaks I’m covered!
What is your favorite part of the wedding day and why?
The reception! I feel like this is when all the pressure is off, all the formalities are done, and you can just focus on having a good time. Some of my favorite wedding photos ever are dance floor photos!
