LEAVE NO TRACE
I'VE BEEN PHOTOGRAPHING ADVENTUROUS COUPLES IN LOVE SINCE 2018. I LIKE TO THINK I HAVE THE BEST JOB IN THE WORLD. EVERY PERSON THAT I'VE GOTTEN TO PHOTOGRAPH OVER THE YEARS HAS MOLDED ME INTO THE ARTIST + PHOTOGRAPHER I AM TODAY.
Anyone can be a wedding photographer and deliver photos, but I go beyond that. My goal is to hold a space for you that allows you to be true to yourself. I want you to dream big! This day should be about you and cultivating your experience that will last an eternity. Forget the posed photos and the expectations for you to do "what is right". There is no right or wrong way to get married! Let's create art together to authentically preserve those once in a lifetime memories.
