Ask yourself this: why do you feel it's important to hire a professional wedding photographer? Why are you commissioning professional portraits of yourself? Why is this season so special you want to have it documented? What’s the story that you want to tell? What feelings will you have on that day that you want to remember for the rest of your life?
Because it matters. You matter. Your life matters. Your story matters and it's worth documenting and holding onto. Not only does it matter to you but it will matter to the generations that follow you. It will serve as a solid foundation upon which your children and grandchildren can build upon.
My photography style is a mix of 'editorial' and 'lifestyle' photography. Did that just make you go, "Blah! Blah! Blah! Artsy-smartsy stuff"? In a nutshell, 'Editorial Photography' means that I am naturally looking at the world and at the composition of the photos I capture as if I were seeing it on the cover of a magazine. I want it to be a little larger than life. I value light, composition, and depth. The 'Lifestyle Photography' is the pull toward the authenticity and the 'life-as-art' in my work. It is important that my style meets your eye and makes you feel something good.
In an age of digital everything and instant access, the poignant moments can easily get posted on a social platform and easily get lost on a hard drive or worse, purged by an error with technology. Placing a priority on fine-art wall prints, archival quality albums, and heirloom print boxes alongside truly professional photography allows you to take those moments back and make them important again. The times change so quickly but I value how photography can stop time.
I’m committed to getting tangible, high quality printed photos in your hands through custom designed keepsakes and stunning wall art.
I will be sending a digital welcome packet and other materials via online magazines rather than printed magazines. I feel that every little thing I can do to reduce the amount of waste that ends up in a landfill is important. Which brings me to another topic, and that is how I source the products that I offer. I do not outsource any of the services that are required to create your final images and I only offer products that are made in the United States and frames made by hand from sustainable woods. At times, this raises my bottom line but I feel it's of higher value.
