Wedding days are often characterized as stressful or overwhelming.
Our couples crave the opposite. They desire relaxation, intimacy and connection on their wedding days. They entrust their vendors to document, direct, organize and orchestrate so they can be present.
Does the idea of standing and posing for hours make your skin crawl? Mine too. Do you want to avoid your wedding day feeling like a photoshoot? Me too.
Do you want to miss cocktail hour for a photoshoot, while all your friends drink without you? I doubt it.
While we will take photos of you and your partner on your wedding day, my priority will always be presence over poses. More time with your loved ones over more "photo-ops".
Your wedding day is not a photoshoot for Instagram; it's a day where all your friends and family are joining together for the first and maybe the last time.
The unexpected rain may bring out a plethora of umbrellas and raindrops on suit jackets, but it also shows how incredible your friends are when they all step in to move the bar inside the tent in the middle of a downpour soaking their suits and spend the night with soaked shoes on the dance floor.
You may have red wine spilt on your dress minutes into your reception. Okay, honestly, that sucks, but it’s what happened, and it sure made one heck of a memory for your wedding day. Those are the stories you’ll give your friends crap about for years to come; we know this guy will never hear the end of it.
Telling the story of your wedding day and your love story, the planned and unplanned moments are much more meaningful than curated images for your Instagram. These are the memories and moments from your day you will remember for years to come, and they deserve to be preserved just as much as the beautiful portraits of you and your spouse.
You want to look back on your wedding photos and be transported back to the exact moment of a hug.
You want to look back on your wedding photos and see yourself not a stuffy, posed version of you.
