*personal post*

I wonder if they’ll look back
And know how I saw them -
Carefree, full of life, and love.
Moments that were new and became tradition,
Caught and frozen in time by Mom’s camera.
‘Mom’s a photographer’ they tell people, but do they see it? Will they see it when they look back on their childhoods captured within rule of thirds, on a f/3.4 with an ISO of 200 with 1/450 speed? Settings that depend on light and location.
I’m sure they won’t.
But I do hope they see, that they are loved. They are cherished. They are seen.

Photography is important, and I’m lucky to be here

On any given day you can ask me my favorite part of my job, and it’s always the same answer. My favorite part of being a wedding photographer/photographer in general is simple: anthropology. I meet so many families and people and learning their backgrounds and relationships is a treat. What songs gather all of the cousins on the dance floor, or what meal brings a smaller family around the table. Who’s on the memorial table and why are they so greatly missed. The stories and traditions, the testimonies, the love. Getting to witness and learn is something I feel so privileged over.

What’s even better is that in 2024 I get to keep following along on social media. Some wedding clients become legacy clients and I learn little things, like how today is Sue & Roy’s 40th wedding anniversary. These two have been parents of the bride twice - well with three weddings (this will always be special) and guests at another wedding last year. The weird and wonderful part of my job is having this anthology of families. I have images and stolen moments all catalogued of people who would have been strangers otherwise.

This family has always been a joy to work with, I’ve even shown up super early to prep because they’re just too kind. So Happy Anniversary Sue & Roy! And thank you to the Brides Molly & Kelly who let me into your stories and let me get to know your amazing family through the years!

RABBIT RABBIT 🐇 :: I hope whatever Spring Holiday you celebrate you had (or are having) a great one. These holidays are all representative of the same concept: rebirth. It’s the natural new year, as the flowers bloom, I hope you find yourself inspired and ready for what’s to come.

I bring my camera to family events (I know that’s a big talking point with photographers) which means I’m rarely in the photos but I get to document the passing of time and the memories year after year. I love how slow season inspires projects (I have one in the works!) and more sharing of some personal photos.

Happy April! Happy Spring! Have a beautiful week 🐰🪻

It’s time to book your Spring/Summer family session. Seriously, it’s time. You deserve to preserve these memories because time is relentless and well, look at how beautiful your life looks? This family? Look at them! Could be you. Let’s go.

Reneè and Peter accepted the fact that the hurricane was going to hit land for their September 2023 beach wedding. They were disappointed, but then told me that during their welcome party they were going to say their vows on the dock, just to give themselves a little control over everything that was proving to be out of their control.

I. Was. Stoked.

I can say so much about this wedding. If you see everyone’s faces, everyone came with the energy. Everyone was over the moon for this couple. And it made all of us involved that more dedicated to giving them the best possible day possible.

So here are the vows on the dock during a chilly blue hour right before Ophelia hit land.

When I’m your photographer, I’m all in, and I LIVE for these moments

I absolutely love getting to do branding sessions - it’s a bonus when it’s for another creative. Molly is one talented artist and you should head on over to her page to see where you can snag some of her original pieces!

TW :: I’m doing some ego busting in this post

These photos are very obviously not taken by me. They are my Husband’s Maternal Grandparents on their wedding day. I was introduced to these photos on the cusp of their 50th wedding anniversary back in 2010 and to me, they’re the most beautiful wedding photos of all time. And why am I posting these today?

I had a good little chat with just moments ago about the shift we are feeling back to ‘classic’ Wedding Photography and I am here for it. Obviously there’s a modern air to these requests and conversations, but the comeback of extended family portraits and traditional timelines? It’s not the end of the world friends - especially when you look back on these photos from 1960 and you immediately understand the importance of this art. These photos were taken on film, probably without insane external lighting and flash that broke bulbs down the aisle. There are shots where people have their eyes closed or weren’t ready. And they are absolutely beautiful.

With intention and technology, it’s impossible for photography today to not hit different. I think it’s time to start going back to basics and listen to our clients, it’s ok to say no or suggest a better timeline for requests - but I think a lot of us present day photographers get swept up in content chasing and portfolio showstoppers that we forget what is happening right in front of us. Tell me these photos don’t transport you right back - and there’s no hashtag or iPhone in sight.

During slow season I’ll start to panic like I don’t know how to run around in 98 degree heat fetching veils and capturing magic through my viewfinder, and then I revisit some RAWs and make myself feel better

Hello! Good morning!

This off season has honestly been so enriching and fun and I know I’ve been taking a little breather from social media here and there (well this grid anyway). I’m over blaming the algorithm or the lords of Instagram for my disgruntlement, I think I just need a mental break from time to time. The game of these squares can really mess with your brain. Can anyone relate?

Anyway I’m back with this photo from the amazing to say HEY to all of my clients and potential clients out there but also to tell my colleagues I can still take on some second shooting spots for this year!

I have a lot of availability in July so if you’re looking for a second, I’m looking to collaborate! Let’s connect before our schedules all fill up, shall we?

A Personal Post:

Valentine’s Day has been a cursed day for us. We started dating in 2003 (yup) and every Valentine’s Day date went sour. Weather, bad reservations, extra homework, all got in the way. In 2010 we had a successful Valentine’s Day date in the city and decided right then and there that we don’t celebrate the holiday anymore. Flowers are usually exchanged, cards, candy, but it’s relaxed. Now we spoil the kids with little treats and we laugh about all of the failed Valentine’s Days of the past.

This year I became super reflective. Even looking at these photos all together, all mixed up, from all points of our story - it really hits in a big way.

I’ve made a living documenting love stories, a big reason why is because I love our story - and I believe everyone should be able to look back on theirs and have these small moments of ‘wow’ whenever they can.

Love you Steve, even if we banished this holiday long ago, it’s so nice to remember just how far we’ve come ❤️🫶🏻
