WHAT TO EXPECT
“I provide modern fine art photography for small, intimate non-traditional San Francisco Bay Area weddings of 50 guests or fewer.”
You are drawn to simplicity and authenticity. You want your wedding to express who you are. You value integrity. You live simply and intentionally. You see your wedding as day one of the rest of your lives together. You are calm, laid back, centered and content. You are a creative thinker and tend to go against the mainstream everything. You see the absurd side of life, and love it even more.
My style is both bold and tender, modern and timeless, edgy and romantic. I mix a fine art feel with a photo-journalistic approach. I am a storyteller of love, and that starts with feeling comfortable with one another, no matter how awkward you think you are in front of a camera.
I am conscious of subtle shifts in light, mood and ambiance. Why? Because I’m always quietly thinking ahead to the next sweet moment, the next authentic way of capturing a moment of beauty, the next fleeting little smile or belly laugh. My way of working creates raw, personal images that evoke a range of emotions.
The ebb and flow of my image-making process leads to the effortless capturing of your true essence, that will feel fun, joyous and transformative.
My individually hand-edited images have a high-key look which means there usually is a predominance of light, bright tones. I use all the following words to describe my style: nostalgic, contemporary, airy, whimsical, elegant, romantic, timeless.
Building a mutually respectful relationship with every couple I work with is the most important thing to me. Everything flows from there. You gotta feel comfortable with whoever you choose as your photographer. This is just one reason an engagement session is so wonderful. It gives you the chance to see how it feels to be photographed, gain confidence in front of the camera, vibe together and obtain beautiful images prior to the wedding.
If you like what you’re reading, and you want to make it official, here’s how it will work! We will meet up informally over tea + crumpets. If you enjoy the crumpets, I’ll send over a proposal tailored to you, and you can see how that fits, and change what you need to. Then in your own time, it’ll be a super-simple e-signature on my contract and a deposit down to secure the date in my calendar. The experience is painless and easy, I promise!
