Why do you want to work with APW Couples?
APW readers are kind, generous, and thoughtful, and their weddings are so full of intention, crafted to be true to them as a couple, and fun and welcoming for their guests. Add in their serious smarts and sense of humor and style, the truth is APW couples have some of the most fun weddings around.
Describe your artistic approach to weddings?
For me, wedding photography starts with the people, and great photography is built on trust. We work together closely before your wedding, so I can learn about you as a couple, and who and what are most important to you in your celebration.
I believe that clients should have the chance to be fully-present at their wedding, without turning it into a photoshoot. That's why I take a photojournalistic approach, documenting all the expected and unexpected moments as they unfold before my lens. These moments of love, joy, energy and emotion - shared between the couple and with their families and guests - they fill my heart.
Inspired by my own wedding experience, and the memory of the day feeling like one big communal hug, I want to deliver images that will wrap couples in the warm embrace of these memories. I strive to create images that are candid and classic. Others have described my work as poetic, exuberant and having emotional depth.
What are your non-work-related hobbies?
I love to read, take walks, do yoga, visit farmers markets and museums, cook (especially with my sisters and mom), and travel with my husband.
What’s your favorite book?
I can't pick just one! Pride and Prejudice is my long-standing favorite. Newer loves include The Night Circus and All the Light We Cannot See. For non-fiction, Personal History: the Autobiography of Katherine Graham is a wonderful read.
If you could have a one minute dance party at your desk, what song would you pick?
