Capturing depth of connection, authentic emotion, and magical light. Serving Virginia and All Places, especially those in the human heart.
I shoot real.
I choose the ordinary beauty over the constructed dream. I choose you. I choose your real family, their real squabbles and love, your real partnership with your love and how that looks on your wedding day.
You won’t find me in the pages of glamour blogs. You will find me on Top 50 lists of some of the best creatives in the industry. You will find me shooting through your arm, over your head, running for good light or a fabulous interaction, in the middle of the dance floor with you, laughing at your uncle’s jokes, crying at your vows.
You will find me suggesting creative photo ideas to you, bustling your dress, and asking how your energy is before we launch into the next part of your day. You will find me staying until the story is fully told, finding the in-between moments, and always keeping in mind that how you feel on your wedding day is more important than everything else.
You will find me easy to be with in moments of great heart. You will find me cheering you on.
And you found me today! Let’s do this. It would be my pleasure.
