How did you get into wedding photography?
I discovered photography around time that MySpace was big. It was the first time in my life that I ever thought about trying to take a decent photo of myself and I was tired of all the arms-length selfie shots that I saw all my friends post. I used to go out most days with my mom’s digital point and shoot and play around with lighting and position and posing to take self portraits for my profile. When I really started getting into it, I would drag my sister along and make her model for me. (Thanks, Laura <3) Through the years, photography just stuck. I had a couple friends ask me to shoot their weddings and I absolutely loved it. Documenting the love between two people on their wedding day is something special and sacred and something I’ll never take for granted.
What is your approach?
I tend to take a “fly on the wall” approach. I love sitting back, watching the day play out, and snapping photos when I see all those little moments that make up a story. I love the ugly tears and the nervous hands and the bad dance moves. I don’t want you to feel like this is my photoshoot. I’m here to document you. Every couple is so different and I love capturing you just as you are. I’ll never force a moment, and I’ll never have you re-enact something. It’s your wedding day, and I just want you to focus on your love for each other and I’ll do the rest.
Do you travel outside of Vermont for weddings?
Absolutely! I love traveling for weddings and have been lucky enough to photograph weddings in many states as well as Vancouver and Iceland! I love to travel for work and I’m willing to discuss discounted rates for places that are on my bucket list!
