Why do you want to work with APW Couples?
Because APW couples are awesome. Because they value art and good photography and story telling. Because they are unique and think outside of the box. Because they are genuinely in love with each other. Because they know that a wedding is so much more than pretty details and decorations. Because they understand that really good photography comes with a price but it’s so worth it because when all is said and done, the photos are your visual love story to hand down for generations.
Describe your artistic approach to weddings?
For me, the best kind of wedding photography is a living thing that shimmers with the soul of happiness itself. It’s the beginning of a long and beautiful story. That’s what my clients and I believe in. They always tell me they can feel the energy and essence of their happy day in my work. And it’s what I will do for you and your wedding, I promise. I bring a particular way of working to the party. I’m small and unobtrusive. You’ll hardly know I’m there. Some clients call me the phantom of the lens, like a Ninja. I work with natural light in an intimate photo-journalistic style. It’s the key to how I capture the authenticity and emotion of your moments. Please look at my work and you’ll see what I mean. If you’re creative and fun and embrace doing things with a twist then chances are you and I look at life through the same lens. Chances are the wedding you imagine for yourself is more special than the usual stuffy banquet-hall numbers so many people default to. Chances are you already value the importance of wedding photography that is as fresh and unexpected as your wedding itself. If that’s you, then let’s get together and create something perfect together.
What are your non-work-related hobbies?
I am a nanny to an amazing three year old. That is my day job and while I suppose it isn’t a hobby, it is what I spend a lot of my time doing. We go on adventures in the park, we play dinosaurs, we go to the museum and art galleries. We have coffee dates, he drinks tea. We’ve adopted a tree in our local park and named her Michelle Branch and take care of her. Aside from doing that, I have a horse named Little Red. We’ve been together for 16 years and have essentially grown up together. I spend as much free time as I can with him. I love to craft and paint and hang out with my friends and family. I love eating good food, is that a hobby?
What’s your favorite book?
Peter Pan and The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, because, should I admit this….I believe that Narnia and Neverland are alternate universes and might actually exist.
What’s your favorite movie?
Hook. Please see above. It’s based on a true story, I’m sure of it.
