Thank you SO much for taking time out of your day to view some of my work.  I’m excited to share with you!  First, I just want to say a few things about my style, and then I’ll let the images speak for themselves.

My style of photography is not for everyone – people choose me because they see people who are sincerely joyful and full of love for one another in my photos.  I see the quirky and loving nature in people.   I’m assertive enough to hunt for great moments, experienced enough to coax relaxed smiles and natural stances from guests, and calm enough to be a positive influence on your wedding day.   My hope is that you will feel incredibly loved and thankful for your relationships time and time again when you see your images.

I would be tickled pink to get to know you and document the spontaneous, emotional, and authentic moments of your wedding day.

You could own images of you and your loved ones just like these . . .Brown
