So here's the thing. I care about what your day feels like.

What I've discovered about weddings after spending years of feeling underdressed and out of place is that I THRIVE when I'm capturing an experience. Weddings can be a big production, and as much as I can resonate with all you do it yourself brides, I feel like it takes away from your ability to actually experience such a significant day in your life. If planning your wedding has felt like the most stressful thing in the world and everything you value and want to keep at the center gets torn away because of the fact that you have to also entertain and take care of 100+ people? Well guess what, you don’t have to do it that way.

This is me yelling from the top of a mountain "YOU CAN DO WHATEVER YOU WANT". 

There is so much pressure to create a wedding that looks a certain way, but what do you want your day to feel like?

I specialize in documenting small, intimate weddings and elopements all over the world. If you are dreaming of your day being 30 of your favorite people standing under your favorite tree or overlooking a view that takes your breath away, that’s what I care about. If you want it to be just you and your love with no one else around and want to make a whole trip out of it, that’s what I care about too.

I was trying to plan my 125 person wedding once upon a time and I had to go sit in the car and cry with my now husband because I felt so overwhelmed. I didn’t want to do the things we were doing, I wanted it to be about us and about the people we care about and who are actively in our lives.

So we decided to have a small, intimate 30 person wedding on our favorite backpacking trail and it ended up being the best decision we ever made.

If this is you, get in touch with me!
