I'm so excited to meet you, here's who I am!
I am an avid traveler, photographer and explorer who loves The Beatles, 20+ hour road trips, and love making my friends and family say "He's where now?" I have a passion for working with couples that love to travel, explore, and be in the moment. I absolutely LOVE weddings, elopements, and using actual dates for photos. I try not to do fully posed shots, so my sessions are usually about being natural and interacting through making each other laugh, playing a game, and being themselves.
We're a match if you're...
Fun & Relaxed · Travelers · A little untraditional · Obsessed with exploring · Spontaneous · Will brave the weather for photos · Not afraid to get a little dirty · Chasers of the sun
PLACES I'D LOVE TO GO NEXT
Oregon | Washington | California | Florida | Utah | Canada | Germany | Ireland | Italy | Japan | Mexico | Anywhere in the Caribbean | I'm open to suggestions!
I am not a believer in posing for every photo, I try to avoid that as much as possible because it feels inauthentic to me. I'll do a few posed shots, but that's a small portion of the session. I want to capture the raw energy and emotion of the couples I work with, so I do what I call "Half-Posing". I'll position you according to the light, and then have you interact with your partner. That allows the photographs to look more like candids with more authentic emotion. My edits are dramatic with a film base.
My StyleBook a Session
My base wedding package includes 6 hours of coverage, myself and an assistant for lights, an engagement session, & timeline planning. I have 3 total packages going up to 12 hours of coverage and if those don't work for you, I'll do a custom package to suit you and your fiance best!
Date Night Sessions
The premise here is simple, a planned date captured in a one or two hour photo session. You relax and be yourselves while you two go mini golfing, get ice cream, or have a sunset picnic. I'll be there to capture the two of you being yourselves
These one to two hour sessions are unique and it is absolutely the best way to see if we are a good match. I'll try adding some adventure to the session by finding unique locations or in some cases creating them with props like a 1955 Ford F-100.

Ready to talk details?
Let's get started! I'll need some basic details to see if I'm available, and to give you an accurate quote. I'll also send you a few questions in the follow-up about you (and your fiance) so I can figure out what type of coverage or shoot is right for you. I'm 100% about making sure your engagement, wedding, or portrait shoot is unique to your personality while keeping true to the style you've seen here.
Let's have some fun!
