Why do you want to work with APW Couples?
If someone asks me what my favorites weddings have been, the answer always ties back to the people, the personalities, and the mood of the day. I love working with couples who are laid back, up for anything, adventurous, down to earth, and deeply in love.
All the details of the wedding are great, but when it comes down to it, what is most important is the people, the love, the good times, and of course the marriage that comes after.
Describe your artistic approach to weddings?
It’s all about telling the story, capturing the energy, and showing the real mood. I like to keep it documentary for most of the day, shooting the natural and intimate moments as they happen, without directing. I’ve been told I’m pure stealth.
I’m laid back and flexible, and I’ll go with the flow if/when the schedule fails or the rain comes. I’ll also hike up the mountain with you or get my feet wet if I need to (and sometimes even if I don’t).
To make sure that we’re comfortable with each other, I prefer to meet before the wedding (in person, phone or skype). When it’s time for couple portraits, I won’t pose you rigidly, I will mostly give you cues and direction, and photograph what happens naturally as you respond and react, to me and to each other.
What are your non-work-related hobbies?
Rock climbing, camping, hiking, playing with my foster kittens, too much baking, road trips, chocolate covered strawberries.
Explain your travel policy:
There is no travel fee for anywhere in the continental US. International fees are case by case, I’ll just need a plane ticket and a place to stay!
