This is hands down the most common thing I hear from couples when we first chat about their wedding day or session. Couples will always point out that they really want authentic + raw imagery, but don't know if they can get there.
Don't you worry!! I have my methods and tricks to ensure my couples are having fun & don't feel awkward at all. I place equal importance on capturing effortless + natural images, while making sure my couples feel comfortable. This is how I achieve the effortless and candid moments that I'm known for!
As long you guys are willing to put your trust in me + be vulnerable with me during our time together — I promise we can create some beautiful photos that will illustrate your authentic love.
My work is heavily focused around capturing real moments. I'm very sentimental at heart and place a large importance on capturing both the look + feel of each wedding day.
Whenever possible, I guide my couples into beautiful light + encourage them to relax, let go, and enjoy. From there, I capture all the beauty that unfolds naturally. I am happy to offer my couples directions + prompts if needed. However, often couples are so caught up in having a great time - they don't need my help!
Capturing these unplanned moments, which showcase all the authentic emotions you were feeling, allows us to freeze those feelings in time. You can look back at your photos, even decades down the line, and remember it all with ease.
Another common question is "What does a 'typical' wedding day with you look like?" The answer: there is no such thing as a 'typical' wedding day.
While most weddings do generally follow a similar flow, each couple is unique. Their wedding day deserves to be seen as unique, too. Viewing my couple's wedding days in this way keeps me on my toes + ensures I'm never on 'auto-pilot.'
Each couple can expect a mix of me being either an observer or a participant in their day. Sometimes, I'll be a fly on the wall - discreetly capturing quiet + intimate moments. Other times, I'll be right in the action, encouraging laughs + big smiles.
I live in Scottsdale, Arizona, and also based in Orange County, California! AKA no travel fees for all my Southern California weddings + shoots. But I am available worldwide to document your story!
ABSOLUTELY! I am available to travel worldwide, in fact, I travel for about 75% of my weddings, if that takes me to the cliffs of Greece or the Mountains of Italy- then my bags are packed!
YES, please!! I recommend it. When you inquire, you will get more information on it.
