...so I am not going to try to sell you with a quick list of random, non-photo related facts about me. Let's be honest, you’re probably not going to reach out simply because we both think Stumptown coffee is awesome and we both love the color green... Am I right?
My approach is purely documentary. Not a single image on this site was explicitly directed because let's face it, posed "prom" wedding poses are lame and reflect absolutely nothing unique about you or your partner.
My couples have always trusted me to capture the truest versions of themselves, so the very last thing I want is for you both to think of this as a "photoshoot."
I promise never to tell you when to laugh, where to look or how to react. That is not the memory you want when you look at your images. You're not pretending to be "in love" in a commercial shoot, so why should your images reflect that? At the very least, your photos will reflect what already exists:
WHY you fell in love in the first place.
During our time together, focus less on me and the camera and more on all the things you love about your partner. What draws you closer? What amazing memories do you both have? What exciting adventures are on the horizon? What does your partner do to make you laugh? Focus on these things and I promise you will absolutely love the experience and the results...
Remember, I will always step in if something doesn't look right!
Friends are more willing to share and be open with friends, so in short, YES, we should be friends! I propose we get to know each other in person and plan fun activities together. We should go hiking, do yoga, drink wine, take a Crossfit class or go mountain biking if that's your thing, watch football, share stories...whatever! I'm still good friends with many of my previous clients. I can assure you our relationship probably will not end once you've received your wedding photos. :)
I look forward to getting to know you both!
