how I work//my philosophy

I want to be the photographer you hire because you value photography. Because you want emotion filled, genuine and raw photos to look back on. I want the bride who doesn't hesitate to get her dress a little dirty, who isn't afraid to go barefoot + couples who let friggen loose. Connection and vulnerability is key. Photography is an investment and I want us to trust each other, to create with each other. I draw close to the way your fingers move across her face as you brush her hair away, the soft stares and wild laughter. You want to dance and give each other piggy back rides? even better. I want the real you; the silly, tickle each other 'til you snort kind of you. Photographs are the only tangible thing you can take away from your big day, they will tell your love story and I value that so much. Forever grateful to all my rad couples that I get to work with!

There is no beauty without some strangeness//

If my work gives you the feels and you want to run through the ocean, climb up a mountain or say your nuptials somewhere that makes you feel alive, lets do this. Lets create something beautiful together.
