omg. you said yes!
Your wedding day is one of the biggest milestones in your life. It's the joining of 2 people and 2 families. It's a reunion and celebration. Documentary wedding photography with me is capturing your love, your connections and the people who are closest to you.
We love A Stress-Free day
We love To Keep Things Simple
We love a good story
from question to dance party
It starts with a big question, a huge amount of courage and a bit of planning. Perhaps there will be a ring or maybe a proposal puppy? Or both!
Proposals happen quickly. One minute you’re a belly full of butterflies, the next you’re embraced in a big hug full of excitement. Top secret or a planned sneaky surprise, I will work with you to figure out the logistics and will arrive at our planned location. I remain hidden while capturing your special moment until the question's been popped. Choose to have a quick portrait session right after or keep it a secret until you receive your photos.
Pre-Wedding Adventure Session
Let's pretend to be socialites and dress up for the horse races, hop on a ferry and spend a day on the island, or perhaps geek out at a cafe playing board games. Whatever wild adventure or quiet past time you're interested in doing, I'm in!!! Let's get out there and do something that speaks true to you both as a couple or something that you've both always wanted to try but haven't quite had the chance yet to.
Adventure sessions with me are more of a hangout. Let's get to know one another whether it's doing something that's special for the both of you or something new.
An alternative to a couples session could be that we document an event relating to your big day. This could mean capturing moments with a special loved one growing up (like grandma!) or perhaps you're planning one last wild party before you tie the knot.
Your Wedding Day
Whether you've been dreaming about this day since you were 4 or you hadn't realized how excited you'd be until the ring was on your finger, I'm here to capture that for you.
Many couples tell me, "We blinked and it went by in a flash." It may come with hiccups and a bit of chaos, but it's still special nonetheless. After the champagne's been popped and the cake has been devoured, after all the songs have been sung and speeches been read, after you take off those blistering shoes that you knew you should have broken in before your wedding,
3 things remain: Your promises to each other, your rings and your photographs.
On the big day, it's important to me that you enjoy yourselves. It's your day! Natural smiles, candid and emotional moments are what I am looking for as these are the images you'll love looking back on, I promise. I arrive when you're just about done hair & makeup and are about to put on your dress or tux. I photograph all the moments big or small throughout your day through ceremony, cocktail hour and also reception. Have me stay through until first dances or extend to have photos of the evening dance party.
Elopements & License Signing
Having an intimate gathering with just 30 guests or less? Or only having yourselves, your witnesses and a commissioner?
Whether it's a large celebration or just a few guests, your love for each other is just as special. Elopements are a great way to exchange vows and rings with only closest friends & family. It's your day, you decide how you want it to be.
I arrive just before your ceremony to capture some details. We photograph all the moments during your mini ceremony as well as the signing of your license. Choose to have some post ceremony photos at a mini cocktail hour or casual BBQ in your home. If you need, I can also be one of your witnesses. :)
