These photographs will become your heirlooms. A true investment which will be passed on to your children and grandchildren, to be looked at for 5, 10, 15+ anniversaries to come. This is such a special time in your life and it deserves to be captured beautifully.
Photography is an art form and it’s equally important that you resonate with a photographer's style of work and that you feel a connection with them. After all, your wedding photographer will be following you around all day, so it’s important that your third wheel is someone you feel comfortable with, can make you laugh, and can calm your wedding butterflies. For the two of you be able to relax and feel comfortable in front of the camera I believe that it’s key that we get to know each other beforehand and meet as friends on your wedding day.
If you are looking for someone to just show up and take photos, I might not be the right photographer for you. The same goes if you are looking for a great bargain—I am sure that there are cheaper photographers out there than me, and that’s okay! The most important thing is that you and your photographer's values are the same. I don’t want to be just another vendor checked off your list; I want to be a trusted friend who you can count on to make this one of the most memorable experiences you will have.
I put my whole heart into my work and I hope you do the same when it comes to choosing a photographer for your big day! This is so much more than a job—it's always been about the people and the stories. Every story is important and unique and I'd love to help tell yours.
