I am so pumped you are here!! 
That means you have connected with my work and you are planning something amazing and I would be so stoked to be a part of it.

Photographing couples in every phase of their relationship has given me so much meaning in my life. I thrive when my couples value the experience more than a perfectly planned out photo and they are down to hang with me instead of treating this all like a business transaction. My best work is when I know who you are and can help you feel 100% comfortable with a camera in your face and we tell stories, have a beer, and go on an adventure together. I want you to go home at the end of the day and not even care if you ever saw even one photo because the experience and everything you felt that day was enough.  Then, I want you to fall in love with each other all over again when you do go through your photos, looking at them over + over again seeing new things each time you relive that moment. This is all so much more than taking pictures, and I firmly believe that not anyone with a fancy camera can take a good photo. This is about you. About getting away from everything that is happening in your life, to slow down and take a deep breath, to be present with each other - whether this is in the middle of your wedding day or 10 years into marriage with kids and jobs and everything. I want to create something meaningful for you.

Phew! Ok let's get to the goods.

Elopements + Intimate Weddings

I can't even tell you how much I love a small, intimate setting for your wedding day. There's no stress, minimal planning, you can spend all your money on everything you've dreamed of, and you can do it in an incredibly beautiful place. 

Sounds perfect right?

Eloping isn't for everyone but when you know, you know. If you are all about that stress-free life and don't care about getting soaked in the rain or under a waterfall and are emotionally prepared to cry your eyes out, then I think we are going to be best friends.  I had a small wedding of 30 people so I feel like I resonate most with these types of weddings.

If you are on the fence, get in touch with me about a few alternatives I've share with some of my couples who have a big wedding, but do something special with me first. It's pretty rad and I highly suggest it to all of my couples.

Wedding Photography

The Big "W". 

If you are getting in touch with me, then you are probably right at the beginning of wedding planning and you just realized that you have to make 10000 huge decisions all at once and it's so overwhelming am I right? 

Well, let me just pause and say this because I think it's really important. 

Investing in good wedding photography is the most important investment you can make on your wedding day.

Just think about it, it's the only tangible thing that you can take away to relive your day over + over again. They live longer than your flowers, the cake, you'll get more use out of them than your wedding dress. They are passed onto your kids, your grandkids, and grow in value over the years.
They are so important. I want to give you something amazing that you can hold on to and cherish for years to come. It shouldn't be something that you are willing to cut corners on, I don't treat it that way, and if you don't either then we are perfect for each other.

  "I can't fully explain what this photo means to me. In our 3 years of being married there have been some long seasons of struggle, loneliness, frustration, and feeling in the dark. Marriage is just hard. That being said, A very wise and important person to me told me a long time ago, "keep a community around you who will remind you just how great and wonderful your spouse is. There will be seasons when it's hard to remember that on your own." Well, who knew that a photographer could not only remind me of that, but literally help me fall in love with my husband all over again. Looking through these pictures, I had forgotten the way I look at John, I had forgotten just how deeply and strongly I love this man." - Wendy

Add On's

Engagement Sessions have become some of the most meaningful interactions with my couples and I HIGHLY recommend them for everyone. 
You get a chance to become more comfortable in front of the camera (this one is huge).
We get to know each other on a personal level.
You get take a day for just the two of you, away from all that wedding planning stress.
I can't even begin to explain how much better your wedding photos are when we have already worked together. It's like night & day.

  "We really couldn't believe our eyes. I knew Aaron is the person that makes me laugh hardest, but I just didn't know what my face looked like when I'm with him.    We are totally in love with the gallery and really can't stop looking at it. We laughed and cried when we saw it for the first time and something strange happened: the images reminded us of what we were saying to each other, so it was a true moment to reminisce.  We are having a hard time choosing which images to print because we really want to print them all and cover our walls with your work."

FAQ's

How long does it take you to deliver the edited photos?
Up to 2 weeks for an engagement + anniversary session, up to 6 weeks for a wedding + elopement.
My goal is to always get them to you as soon as possible, without compromising the quality of my work.

Do you deliver all of the images?
No, I hand select the best of the best images, and spend time carefully editing them in color + BW and natural touch up’s
 so you don’t have to worry about that pimple you got the night before. (happened to me on my
wedding day too). 

Travel, who books it, how does that work?
Once I know your location and the time I will be spending with you, I will send over a quote of what the travel fees will be. 
This flat fee is included in your final invoice due 2 weeks before the wedding day. I book my own travel from there and you
never have to worry about it again! I am always up for creative ways to keep costs down, I can sleep in your spare
bedroom, at a friend’s house, or have you drive me around - plus we get to know each other better!

Everyone in your photos always looks so cute, but we are so awkward.
Oh honey, there isn’t anyone as awkward in front of the camera as me.
I completely 100% resonate.  I have never worked with a couple that
hasn’t warned me of this, and look what we created! 
I’ve got a stash of secret ways to make you feel comfortable, have tons of fun,
 and you won’t even remember the camera is there by the end. 
Yes, my couples have told me that 100 times too.
