I am inspired by love.
Not the kind that you fall into and out of, but real love. The kind of love that you live out daily. The kind of love that moves you to serve others over self. The kind of love that strengthens you when you receive it and deeply impacts you when you share it with someone. It is a courageous, passionate, determined choice, and it brings my work to life and gives it meaning. It is the kind of love that strong, enduring marriages are made of.
I believe that your wedding day should be relaxed, joyful, and uncomplicated. My mission as your photographer is to make sure that you have the information that you need to make wise, intentional choices about your wedding day, to support, encourage, and celebrate you from initial contact to final product delivery, and to provide an environment within which you feel comfortable being yourself and making memories with the people that you dearly love.
As a wedding photographer, I am an artist, a storyteller, and a family historian. This business is more than a job or a paycheck to me. It is a calling. It is an outlet through which I have the opportunity to serve, celebrate, and love people, and I do it because my life and my heart have been forever changed by the love of my savior Jesus Christ. He is the source of my strength, my patience, and my joy. I am not a perfect person, but I strive every day to serve my clients with the grace and peace that He provides.
I believe that your wedding photographs are more than a collection of images. They are more than memories. They are more than moments frozen in time. They are a refuge. Your wedding photographs remind you that you are treasured, you are chosen, and you are deeply loved. I photograph weddings because I am inspired by your choice to love one another as fully as you are able. I am encouraged by the joy that you express over sharing your lives together. I find purpose in providing you with a collection of images that will one day give you strength when life and love are difficult.
My faith moves me to live generously in all areas of my life, including my business. You are more than a number to me. You are more than a budget or a paycheck. You are a person of immeasurable value, and your story matters. The most important and exciting part of this job to me is meeting, connecting with, serving, and celebrating clients who have a love for classic, natural images and who believe that building a strong marriage is more important than producing an expensive wedding. Therefore, if you love and connect with my work and are excited to work with me, I will work to put together a custom wedding photography collection that meets your needs and fits within your budget. On average, my couples invest $2500-3500 in their wedding coverage, but I am completely comfortable working with any budget for the right couple.
