Describe your business in 1-3 short sentences.
I'm a photographer who appreciates the beauty in the unplanned. My style is unobtrusive yet intimate, capturing all the spontaneous emotions and intricate details of the day all while barely being noticed. I believe in getting to know my clients as people, not just customers, and I want to create an honest and natural experience with them.
Why do you want to work with APW Couples?
I adore couples who value the commitment and relationship to and with each other more than stressing out over place cards or favors. I love it when couples analyze the structure of the wedding day and choose to keep the traditions and the events that are meaningful to them and throw the rest out. I am always SO excited when couples tell me they want their celebration to be more about having fun, dancing their butts off, eating good food, committing their lives to one another, and enjoying the company of their friends and family more than anything else. I love genuine, real people!
Describe your artistic approach to weddings?
My goal, above all else, is to provide you with photographs that capture the atmosphere and emotion of your day, of your personalities, and of your relationship. I'm not going to pose you every other minute -- in fact, I'd prefer it if you forgot I was there for most of the day! I want you to feel relaxed, confident, and like you can truly be yourselves. I want photos that are colorful and bold and honest. I want you laughing with your nose scrunched up -- your REAL laugh. I want you hugging your grandmother with a tear rolling down your cheek. I want you dancing up a storm with your best friends from college. I want you to be YOU and just let me capture everything else. :)
What are your non-work-related hobbies?
I love fitness (running in particular), wasting time on the internet (sup Reddit?), cooking & baking, and hanging out with my nerdy husband and our awesome dog!
What’s your favorite book?
I will read anything that Mary Roach writes.
What’s your favorite movie?
