I wanted to be a fighter pilot. Not even kidding. But I grew up, and I started accumulating Fine Arts degrees (BFA in Photography, Birmingham-Southern College, MFA in Photography Parsons School of Design). But that made me a little bit of an art snob that looked down at commercial photography. That was UNTIL I photographed my first wedding. I delivered the images in person via DVD (yeah, it was a long time ago). The bride jumped up and down and squeeled with glee.
I WAS HOOKED. From that point on, my goal has been to make every client feel that way about their images. Over the years that has evolved into putting a tremendous focus on something greater than just the images--the experience of the client. Using the years of experience to help guide clients and their families through this important day, doing everything in my power to make it enjoyable and memorable for them is equally as important as the images I deliver.
Sipping chartreuse and green tea while looking at the most perfect white subway tile and hand painted signs. Driving through the mountains to Portland reminiscing about the best memories back home. Cozy sweaters, vintage demin, and Pabst while telling one of a kind love stories. The trials and tribulations of love, joy, and happiness. Lastly, champagne brunch and avocado toast while surrounded by the finest exposed brick, dreamcatchers, and maps to our souls. Dreamcatchers, macrame and 100 Days of Summer. Anthropologie trips and walks on the beach, love letters and secret admirers. Fall breeze, flannels, and hot cocoa. Whales and dinosaurs and handmade crafts. Salvage denim, antique leather bags, and the first time we watched Moonrise Kingdom.
