I pretty much always see the world through a ' the glass is over-flowing' type of perspective. From the time I was little I have been a big dreamer, overly optimistic and a hopeless romantic (blame it on Princeton Girl 818 - lol if you get that reference). I'm hard-wired for joy and it's something I thank God for daily. My husband can attest to the fact that there isn't a single moment lost on me - I live for simple moments and deep connection. I want to taste and see that the Lord is good and often times I experience that with travel, community and trying new things.
The in-betweens has become a mantra of mine since I got married back in 2018. It represents that beauty that I have found in the moments that others often overlook. Some of my favorite in-betweens are the first sip of warm coffee on a crisp morning, the smell of the dew covered grass, and the quiet of 5:00 am devotional time.
Your wedding day is a culmination of so much more than a few months of planning - it is a reflection of all that God has done in you and through you two. Marriage is what we celebrate - not a wedding. Getting to know my couples is one of my favorite parts of intimate wedding + elopement photography because together we can create a day that is a physical reflection of the work God has done in you. When hiring me you don't just get someone who shows up and presses a few buttons, You get an intentional, moment-maker who guides you in crafting the perfect day to reflect YOU as a couple.
I approach the wedding day looking for the in-between moments that bring emotion, context and story telling into your gallery. When I hand pick each photo, I am not simply looking to include a snapshot of every moment but instead string together each piece of the day as if they were stills pulled from a movie and you're the main character. It looks like using light, composition and seemingly insignificant details to create a photo that shows the emotions you were feeling.
It astounds me that God, the Creator of the Universe, gave us marriage as a representation for our heavenly marriage to Him. It is a beautiful gift that allows us to taste and see that the Lord is good. It's an honor to document the start of your journey.
