Growing up, I used to have this weird, irrational fear that one day, I wouldn’t be able to rely on my memory to piece together the time that has passed. In my heaviest, nostalgic moods, I’d go through entire boxes of poorly organized family photos, and just stare in the background of every picture, to see if I could find some clue that would unlock a past memory I maybe had forgotten. Terrible hair phases, kid-teeth that came in at awkward angles, the outfits our mom forced us into (then begged for a smile); all of these life phases were charted through photographs, with an unanimous objective to help us remember. This is where my affinity for photography, and the actual documentation of life, began to mean something to me, and it has been the vehicle of my dream life, ever since.
Simply put, I want to help you remember your wedding day, for quite literally, the rest of your life. I want to capture fleeting moments and fragments of seconds during your day that would otherwise go unnoticed. I want you to laugh-cry the first time you see your wedding images, and then years after that. I want your wedding images to be a reflection of who you are, and what speaks to you as a couple, versus anything you’d see on a Pinterest board. I want you to feel conﬁdent that you’re in good hands, and that I’ll also tell you what to do with them (because hands feel instantly awkward on our bodies the second a camera is on us- don’t worry, I’m prepared). And most importantly, I want you to eat ALL of your dinner on your wedding and at least two pieces of cake so you’ll have “dancing fuel”.
