i shoot weddings. i document one of life's most special occasions.
on your wedding day i am an observer with a camera. there to document - not to change it or alter it. i love photographing the organic, emotional connection couples have naturally. i let couples be who they are and let them simply enjoy their day and i capture it.
i love meeting new couples and hearing how they met, the journey they've taken and how they ended up at this point. i truly feel fortunate to witness the most special day in my clients' lives.
in my spare time, i'm usually enjoying the great outdoors.
i love: coffee, movies, photo books, traveling, food & cooking, meeting new people, and exploring and hiking in these beautiful mountains.
