But it’s so much more than just a wedding day. Remember the nervous anticipation before your first date? The first time you held hands? Or that not-quite-as-planned first kiss? You’ve learned one another's quirks, secrets, and dreams. You’ve shed tears of frustration while facing and overcoming challenges together. Now, you’ve decided there is no one else you'd rather conquer the world with.
And that’s a big deal. Like, HUGE! You aren’t just throwing a party, you’re celebrating your epic, once-in-a-lifetime love. You aren’t just getting married, you’re stepping into a lifelong commitment with your partner. As your photographer, it’s my desire to honor your whole journey together - past, present, and future.
Tacos, the beach, anything sparkly, my cats, the Bachelor, sarcasm, my hubby, traveling, hockey & watching super awesome people like you get married.
Which is maybe why I love weddings so damn much. It’s an emotional day, full of palpable joy that I couldn’t be happier to capture for you. And I'll be honest, I'm probably going to cry at your wedding.
I love the whole process, though. From your very first email until I hug your neck at the end of the night, I love making sure your wedding comes together perfectly.
I am an emotional girl. I feel
ALL THE THINGS.
Like, super f-ing pumped that you and your love are about to embark on this incredible adventure together. Whether you book me or not (but, I mean, book me!) I'm genuinely thrilled for you that you found the one person you want to annoy for the rest of your lives.
You’re more than just a bride, or just a groom. You’re a real live person, with stories and experiences that have brought you to this step in your life. Tell me about em! I really, truly want to get to know you both. The best part by FAR about my job is when a client turns into a friend. Did we just become best friends?!
