You want a wedding photographer who embraces your awkward feelings about pictures and your fears about where to put your hands -- someone who can release your beautiful inner butterfly. Wait, did I really just say that outloud? That sounds like something out of a cheesy rom com.

**don't get me wrong, I love a good movie binge**

But seriously, every client I've ever worked with has said to me at some point in time, "Hey, we're really awkward and not photogenic, so we're going to need, like, A LOT of direction." I. GET. IT. And here's another shocker, YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE A MODEL TO HAVE BEAUTIFUL, "DAMN-I-LOOK-GOOD" WEDDING PHOTOS! You just need a wedding photographer who is kick-ass skilled and intentional about bringing out your own natural, kick-ass personalities and vibes on your wedding day. Here's the truth, lots of people can take a decent photo and call themselves a photographer. But few photographers are skilled enough to take your images to another level of artistry and connection that you'll be proud to print and share with your grandkids. That's where I come in!!
