Not everyone has worked with a professional photographer, and if this is you, then that’s okay! I want you to know a little bit about what it’s going to be like when working with me - that’s what this page is all about. I want to give you the photos of your dreams, and that can only truly happen if we are both on the same page. If all this sounds good so far, then keep reading friend. 

heres what's going
to happen:

Welcome to the ELOPEMENT experience. Are you ready?

COME CHAT WITH ME

Think of me more as your best friend, third wheeling with you on a date, capturing the in between moments and the TRULY candid moments that you dream about having to remember this season of life. I will not tell you to hold still and smile. I won’t tell you to smile at all actually. I only want you to smile if you’re feeling it. If it’s truly the emotion you’re feeling in that moment. And fear not - I have some tricks up my sleeve to make sure you guys are well prepared and ready to love on each other when we take photos (coffee or some beers may or may not be involved ;))

I 'M NOT ABOUT THE
"FAKE" CANDID

LET'S CAPTURE MEMORIES & EMOTIONS

TAILORED TO WHO YOU ARE. TOGETHER.

The truly candid stuff I’m talking about are those moments when you forget I’m there. When you’re wrapped up in your own world together - the music getting louder, your worlds getting closer. When you look deep into each other’s eyes and start to dream about your future together. When you start holding each other because you realize that this is it - your human is finally here. The rest of your life is with you right now. 

Every friendship starts with some sort of experience. I’m a huge food person - I’m always looking for a good atmosphere and delicious grub! And before we go out and shoot, I wanna make sure we get to know each other. A great way to do that is breaking bread together (sounds so old-timey, but I honestly love that term!). Let’s go get a burger and some beer, or ramen and sake, or pastries and coffee. You name it, I’m game. I want to meet you both face to face (not just over a screen), and hang out like pals first!

EXPERIENCE

THIS ALL HAPPENS BECAUSE OF TRUST AND FRIENDSHIP

WE CAN CREATE THE BEST MAGIC IF WE TRUST EACH OTHER, AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, FEEL COMFORTABLE WITH EACH OTHER.

THIS ALL HAPPENS BECAUSE

OF TRUST
AND FRIENDSHIP

Those epic moments you see on the edge of cliffs are the ones that bring out the most in us. Being that close to God in a place like Taft Point, Yosemite at sunset will honestly wreck me every time. That’s why I think adventuring to the most beautiful parts of the world brings out the best emotions in us. And that’s why I want you to trust me when I say: I am down for all of it. Any adventure you can cook up, I’m here for it. Even if it means camping in below freezing weather. :)

ADVENTURE

The images that bring you back to an emotion are the ones that will forever and ever remain important to you. You’re not thinking about it now - but photography shouldn’t just be something on a checklist that you need to accomplish. Photography is arguably THE most important thing to invest in on your wedding day. Because you’re putting me in charge of your memories. And my goal is for you to have images that will last for decades to come, so you can relive your day, emotions and all, over and over again.

FOREVER

LET"S GET STARTED

i    will        forever
       love     you...

INTIMACY MEANS MORE THAN JUST KISSING

One thing that I’ve began to love most about this career of mine is getting to capture intimacy in all forms - physically and emotionally. Vulnerability is something that will come naturally in this process with me. I want to capture your tears, your laughs, your wind-swept moments, your epic moments, your close moments. They are all there, and can come out in a shoot together if we let it happen.

I'VE FALLEN IN LOVE WITH INTIMATE WEDDINGS

After doing the big wedding thing for almost 2 years, I’ve truly found my passion in this career. It’s the intimate declarations of commitment that always resonate the most with me and my work. I’ve honed in what has made this job incredible for me personally, and it’s when I get to be intimate with the new friends I come to love in this experience that mean the most.

BREAK THE TRADITION. 
YOU DO YOU.

THERE ARE OTHER WAYS TO GET MARRIED THAN IN A BIG BALLROOM.

Think again!

If you’re thinking the only way to get married is to have a big wedding and inviting all the people, then I’m here to tell you otherwise. If that’s not what you want, or what you think is right for you and your boo, then HEAR ME OUT: There are other ways to do it! Consider opting outside for something smaller. More intimate. Let’s get those emotions running with a beautiful view, and the people that mean most to you. Take back your day and do what means the most to you and your love story.
