Describe your business in 1-3 short sentences.
Laid back, light filled, lifestyle portraits for people in love.
Why do you want to work with APW Couples?
There is a school of thought that we should surround ourselves with people that share the same values, ideas, and aspirations. I was once an APW bride, so I consider myself lucky that I get to spend time with creative, enthusiastic, and level headed couples who understand exactly what a wedding is about. Every APW couple I have spent time with always has a great story, and turn from clients to friends after we’ve spent the day together!
Describe your artistic approach to weddings?
I look at every day through the perspective of a writer (I think this has something to do with my history in the journalism field). Every couple has a story waiting to be told, and I am the one “holding the pen” ready to document it all! I get emotionally attached to each wedding I photograph, and while that can lead to me crying during the toasts or dancing with the bridesmaids, every tear or blister is worth it if I can provide pictures that are not only beautiful, but tell a story that is unique and full of joy. I want my couples (and their family members) to look at their galleries or albums and feel like the photos are a beautiful, accurate, and timeless representation of a day that was so important to them.
What are your non-work-related hobbies?
I often don’t describe my job as “work”, but when I’m not hanging out with my camera I am spending time with my husband and our daughter Hazel. Family adventures around the Bay Area are my favorite times!
