I think the photographer – couple relationship is truly key for wedding images to be a success. Aside from all the creativity and technical nitty gritties, the relationship between the person behind the camera and the people in front of it, is important. Many of my couples I know through references, or at least feel […]

I’ve got a thing for pretty things, as any girl would, of course! But my definition of pretty has changed a ton over the years, especially as I continue down this path as a wedding photographer. Naturally it has sparkles and shiny objects you can wear on body parts, but there is also that definition […]
