Why do you want to work with APW Couples?
I love APW people. Hands down my favorite couples to work with have always come from APW. I love to work with couples that are grounded and thoughtful and lively, and for some reason I am always finding those kinds of people here.
Describe your artistic approach to weddings?
The photos that I hold most dear are the ones that make me remember the emotion of the moment—not so much the ones that are perfectly staged. With that said, I do love a beautiful and well made photograph, and sometimes that means directing natural poses. But I like to think that you can have a stunning photograph that is magnificent and real. When I am taking pictures, I want to be first an observer and second a creator.
What are your non-work-related hobbies?
Mountain walks in early morning sunshine. Making and eating anything chocolate. Trying to figure out why our tomatoes died this year. Planning the next adventure. Learning Spanish. Writing letters. Eating good food. Reading.
What’s your favorite book?
How can I pick just one? Our Town…anything by Annie Dillard…The Old Man and the Sea.
