For Brides & Grooms

Hello Brides & Grooms-To-Be!

I am so excited for you! williamsburg-photographer

Getting married is one of the biggest days of your life, and I am honored that you are considering me to capture the moments & memories on your special day.

As you probably already know, getting along with your wedding photographer is just as important as loving their photos. So while I am normally a private person, I do want to help you find out if I can be the right photographer for you. So here is a little about me & what makes me different:

I LOVE
capturing THE moment that forever tells a story. I love romantic dips, loving embraces, kisses, and especially love pictures when you aren’t looking at the camera.

I BELIEVE
photographs should evoke a flood of memories & emotions (not be stiff and unnatural). That having your picture taken should be easy & fun (even if you’re camera shy like me). And I believe the wedding day should be centered around experiences and moments, not on detail shots, but a few are always nice to have.

I ENJOY
the organized chaos of weddings and helping couples plan the photo part of their day! I enjoy helping people, being more than “just a photographer”, laughing, (happy) crying, action shots, and sunset photos whenever possible (even in a hurricane or the snow if the couple is up for it :).

I AM

hampton-roads-photographer

a wife (10 years+), mother, OU grad, gluten-free, chocoholic, short (5’3″), down-to-earth, and prefer a little coffee (or tea) with my sugar. I grew up in small town Ohio, but have lived in Virginia since 2000. A November baby, I love the fall and Halloween is my favorite holiday (but a Halloween-themed wedding is still on my bucket list!)

And check out testimonials from couples I’ve photographed too (more on WeddingWire.com and theKnot.com). They are far better at explaining my style and the connections I have forged with my couples and their families.

Even in the heat of the summer, I always dress professionally in a suit. If the groomsmen can do it so can I. I need the extra pockets anyway!
