Describe your business in 1-3 short sentences.
I am a queer owned, LGBTQ wedding photography studio. I wanted to create a collective that would support my LGBTQ community by honoring and sharing their love stories with the world.
Why do you want to work with APW Couples?
I want to photograph unique love stories that are an important part of who the LGBTQ community is.
Describe your artistic approach to weddings?
I want my couples to look at their collection of photographs that I deliver and have strong reactions to them, whether they're laughing or crying or both. Guaranteed, I've already done the same when creating these images for them. I want to know each couple intimately, and have them trust me enough to reflect back the beauty and rawness and energy that they possess. I want them to remember these tiny, beautiful moments...forever. When my couples look at their photos I want them to not just remember what that moment looked like, but be able to feel it-- the laughter, the tears, the smiles, the hugs, the quiet moments and everything in between.
What are your non-work-related hobbies?
I'm an avid writer, and I also love gardening, cooking, going to art shows and reading poetry.
