Why do you see yourself as being Modern, Vintage, Classic, or Eclectic?
I believe I am a modern wedding photographer as I have a deep love of color and whimsy. I want to embrace all of the details and moments of your day that are full of joy and happiness all the while portraying how vibrant and fun they were!
What is your favorite wedding detail you've ever seen or created?
I have to say that I adore photographing details. There are so many little things that make up the story of your wedding day. I LIVE for those things! It's so hard for me to pick just one favorite detail that I have seen. I always swoon for handwritten vows and love letters to each other! I also love little nods to the life couples have already built together, like including a memento to (or their actual) fur baby. Every couple has a touch of their own personality to their wedding that I know is special to them and I want to make sure I honor each and every one!
What is your favorite store or brand?
I am SUCH a shopper - it's not even funny. I do have to say I gravitate towards places like Boden or Anthropologie as they have so many fun and colorful things that I sometimes can get lost in them. They are both so attuned to detail and have the most beautiful set-ups and displays that I get so much inspiration from!
What advice do you have for a newly engaged couple?
For newly engaged couples, I always, ALWAYS recommend to them to enjoy their engagement. Have fun and sit back for awhile and just acknowledge that you are engaged! You've taken the first step towards forever and that moment in time should be acknowledged and celebrated!
What is your favorite thing about weddings?
My favorite thing about weddings is getting the chance to document a love story. Everyone's love story is different and I am beyond honored that I am chosen to capture their first day together. Not many people get to say they have the important job of being able to tell individual stories of people around the world. I love being a storyteller and get inspired everyday by my couples!
What qualities do you possess that enable you to work well with brides and grooms?
As an introvert, I really dislike talking about myself! However, I feel that I am outgoing with my couples. I really want to get to know them and what they are dreaming for their wedding. I take the time to get to know them and help them plan their whole day. I also am easygoing and relaxed on the day of their wedding because no couple deserves to be stressed on one of the biggest day of their lives! I try to exude a fun and creative atmosphere to be able to capture their happiness and laughter throughout the day!
What steps do you take to ensure that your clients will have amazing wedding days when working with you?
Organization and planning are the biggest steps I take with my clients! I talk on the phone with my clients (or in person!) a week or so before their big day to go over the questionnaire and timeline I built for them so that there is no confusion or stress on their big day. They know exactly what I am going to be doing all day and they trust that I am going to stick their schedule as closely as possible to ensure they have nothing to worry about. Communication is so vital!
