what gives a photo it’s life?
It’s not just about light, or location or outfits. It’s about the energy between you. It’s about those embraces in the morning as you wake up slowly, and that knowing laugh they catch your eye with. Those little ways they love you that you want to carry with you, preserve forever. The photos that you look at and feel that rush of affection in your heart every time, because that person in the photo is your person. Those smiles are created for and by your love, and they are probably the greatest emotions you’ve ever felt.
That level of intimacy I just described is damn intimidating, and that’s why letting me in matters. The better I know you, the better I can photograph you.
It’s about comfort, vulnerability (on both ends), and trust.
how we do it
To be real, i’m invested AF in this and I want you to be too. Creating a collection of photographs that is a representation of your love, of your very favorite day, is the most meaningful thing to me. The shapes of the clouds, the way the light hit your skin, the look in his eyes. These galleries I look back at with the very same excitement as i’m sure you do. I never forget that these photos are going to a home, to a family, to grandkids in the future, and grandparents today who couldn’t make it.
It’s important to me to know the details, to pay attention when you tell me your whys, and spend every moment i’m with you observing and doing what I do best; taking a ton of photos. The images I give back will be meaningful, intentional, and a collage of your new favorite memories.
The way I shoot is unique to every couple. I will never force you to spin and laugh if your truth is quiet and slow. Our energies work together to create an experience that makes you feel comfortable and confident, and brings out the best of each of you.
