Why do you want to work with APW Couples?
I already am! This is my market of people in Colorado + across the country already! People who are focusing their weddings on the celebration of their marriage, rather than an expensive price-tag, pinterest board or “publication”. As a queer person myself who is planning a wedding, I have spoken with way too many people who aren’t accommodating and inclusive. It’s hard to understand, as a business owner, how this is possible. How photographers don’t LOVE their couples. I dig deep, I love big, I commit body + soul. I work with couples whose love fuels my passion, inspires me and pushes me to reach beyond my comfort zone to make amazing art! A Practical Wedding is completely in line with my values as a business owner and person. I couldn’t think of a better match.
Describe your artistic approach to weddings?
It all starts with a breakfast burrito and an iced toddy. That and an awesome couple, a couple that I have built a relationship with over time, texts, phone calls, skype dates, engagement sessions + laughter. I always scout, always prepare and always come ready to bring the best to each day even when things don’t go as expected or meticulously planned. I use humor, authenticity and love to bring forth the truest parts of my couples, to photograph them at their purest and most “in love” form. When you come as a human with love, you can’t fail.
