Thanks so much for stopping by. I’m really grateful you’ve landed here. The photos above will give you a glimpse into my whole world. Texas is home, but I’ve traversed the globe for almost a decade documenting couples + shooting portraits.
Photography is important. It reinforces the experiences you’ve had in your life. Without it, we are left to our best efforts to remember (which if you’re like me doesn’t always go as planned.) Photography makes us wonder, feel, and reflect on our lives.
My best guess is that you’re thinking of hiring me to document your wedding -or- family. I want you to know a few things about me before you go any further:
I TELL the truth
WHAT I CREATE FOR MY CLIENTS ISN’T PERFECT IN THE SOCIETAL SENSE OF THE WORD. WHAT I CREATE WILL ACCURATELY DISPLAY YOUR STORY WITHOUT THE FLUFF OF WHAT YOU ‘SHOULD’ BE OR WHAT THINGS ‘SHOULD’ LOOK LIKE. NO TEMPLATES OR SHOT LISTS. I WANT THE REAL YOU AND ALL THE TEARS.
THIS IS HOME, BUT I TRAVEL FOR MOST OF MY WEDDINGS. IF YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT STAMPING YOUR PASSPORT FOR YOUR CELEBRATION LET’S TALK. MY WORK HAS TAKEN ME TO ITALY, THE BAHAMAS, THE CARIBBEAN, MEXICO, YOSEMITE, YELLOWSTONE, HAWAII, MARFA, AND OVER HALF OF THE LOWER 48.
YOU ARE NOT A MODEL
WELL, MAYBE. THAT WOULD BE FINE. BUT SERIOUSLY. HAVING YOUR PHOTO TAKEN CAN BE UNCOMFORTABLE. I GET IT (WHY DO YOU THINK I’M BEHIND THE CAMERA?) I’LL BE THERE EVERY STEP OF THE WAY. MY UNIQUE PROCESS IS PAINLESS. YOU’LL LOOK INCREDIBLE. STUNNING. ACTUALLY, YOU’LL PROBABLY BEGIN YOUR MODELING CAREER AFTER WE WORK TOGETHER.
THE CORE OF WHAT I DO IS RELATIONSHIPS. YES, I’M AN ARTIST AND BLAH BLAH BLAH, BUT IF THERE ISN’T A RELATIONSHIP HOW DO YOU THINK I CAPTURE REAL MOMENTS? MUCH OF MY PROCESS INVOLVES BUILDING THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN you AND i. THIS WAY, ONCE THE WEDDING DAY ROLLS AROUND I FEEL LIKE A FRIEND, not just a random vendor. MY COMMITMENT TO RELATIONSHIPS MEANS I ONLY ACCEPT 20 WEDDING COMMISSIONS PER YEAR.
THAT IS ALL.
i want you to know Choosing me to document you means you get something different out of the photography process. you get authentic moments, real relationships, and an experience that is bar-none.
