i am a believer in non-traditional weddings. i think your wedding should be about you. i don’t like doing anything, ‘just because.’ i want to learn what is important to you and the stories about why. i want to believe in your love. i want you to show me. to live it. i want your loved ones to think this is the greatest thing to ever happen to you. i want differences. i want old, stained, started over, quirky, lucky, doesn’t make sense,  together on this great earth because you chose to be. i want tiny backyards and riversides, mountain valleys and cabins, beaches and hot air balloons. i want $500 of twinkly lights and nothing else. i want fairytales and dr. seuss. these are the weddings that speak to me. these are the stories i want to celebrate. i want ethereal, magical and something i’ve never done before. let’s make something awesome.

portraits of interesting people in all sorts of places. elopements, destinations, adventures, daily life, hometowns and more. view the portfolio to see some of my favorite portraits of other humans. i like connecting with other people from all walks of life. i like hearing your stories. i like seeing your interactions. i like making you feel valued; comfortable; and worthwhile. let’s be friends.
