My attention to detail is unwavering. I focus on capturing the little things that make each wedding unique – the intricate lace on the bride's gown, the tears of joy in the groom's eyes, the laughter shared between family and friends. These details tell a story, and I am committed to preserving every chapter.
On your wedding day I am there, capturing every precious moment. With my camera in hand, I stealthily move around, ensuring that I capture the essence of your love story.
As you begin to get ready for the day, you finish your make-up & hang with your girls, nerves and excitement intertwine... I capture the intimate details of your routine. The gentle brushing of hair, your delicate jewelry, your dress details and the meticulous fastening of buttons and ties, for the groom. Each moment tells its own story, a beautiful prelude to the grand celebration that awaits.
In the midst of the bustling preparations, I find moments of stillness, capturing the quiet reflection in your eyes. I know that these moments will fade quickly, so I strive to freeze them in time, giving you a glimpse of the love and anticipation that radiates from your hearts.
As you slip into your wedding attire, I capture the tender moments shared with loved ones. The tears that well up in your mother's eyes as she helps you into your dress, the proud smile on your father's face as he adjusts your tie, and the laughter shared with your closest friends as they surround you with love.
As you step into the ceremony venue, I capture the breathtaking beauty of the surroundings. The vibrant colors, the delicate flowers, and the soft glow of candles that create an atmosphere of enchantment. These details, meticulously planned for months, are now transformed into a real-life fairytale.
Throughout the ceremony, I capture the unspoken vows exchanged through heartfelt glances. The joyous tears, the heartwarming smiles, and the overwhelming emotions that fill the room. These are the moments that make your love story unique, and I am privileged to be a witness to them.
After the ceremony, I whisk you away to a secluded spot, away from the prying eyes of guests, to capture the first moments of wedded bliss. The stolen kisses, the whispered promises, and the shared laughter become the foundation of your forever.
As the day unfolds, I capture the candid moments, the stolen smiles, and the uninhibited joy that envelopes you and your loved ones. From the heartfelt speeches to the energetic dancing, I am there, preserving these fleeting memories for you to relive and cherish for a lifetime.
And when the day draws to a close, as the sun dips below the horizon, I present you with a sneak peek of the magic we created together. A collection of images that reflect the love, beauty, and happiness that filled your wedding day. These sneak peeks are a reminder of the love that surrounds you, and a testament to the beginning of your forever.
On the wedding day itself, I am more than just a photographer. I become a friend, a confidant, and a supporter. I create a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere, making you and your loved ones feel comfortable and at ease.
I capture not only the traditional moments but also the candid, spontaneous ones that truly reflect the genuine emotions of the day.
Capturing the essence of the couple's love story is what I do.
I believe that photography is not just about clicking a button, but about creating timeless memories that will be cherished for a lifetime.
I believe marriage and deep relationships are some of life's greatest gifts! I know that my role in our Couple's lives is not only to deliver a beautiful final gallery but to be supporters and encouragers for their new marriage!
I believe that every human being has gifts and passions for purposeful reasons. I am so thankful that my children are growing up watching their mom use her abilities in a business that is creatively fulfilling and filled with meaningful purpose!
I believe my photography business exists to not only serve my Couples every year but it also continues to serve them as they grow their families! It's a joy to watch my couples love grow along with watching their families grow as the years go by.
—Mr. & Mrs. Brooks
Your wedding has happened. It was beautiful and everything you dreamed it would be. Instead of just downloading your images to your hard drive and sharing a link with your family and friends, you take it a step further and you invested in a family heirloom keepsake that tells the story of the day you began your life together as husband and wife. Your wedding is literally the beginning of your new family unit! Now, try to fast forward even further and envision yourself sitting in your future living room with your future four year old and he/she is asking questions about when you got married. You look at them and say, “Hold on one minute, ok?” and you grab your legacy album. As you flip through the pages, half of the album in your lap and the other half in theirs.... your child notices aunts, uncles and grandparents celebrating with you on your wedding day. If your future child is anything like ours, they will be in awe of these old pictures. When our daughter, Alice, was six years old, I sat down with her and showed her our wedding album for the first time and she flipped through the pages for half an hour, just taking it all in. It was as if I had given her a peek into a part of our story that she hadn’t comprehended yet and it was beautiful. Legacy albums aren’t for you, they are for those that come after you. What a beautiful gift to hand down to future generations!
I love being both interactive and discrete throughout the wedding day. There will be parts of the wedding day when I will need to be in control in order to accomplish everything that needs to be done in order to keep everyone on schedule. There will also be moments when you shouldn’t even know that I’m there. (The ceremony, during dances and toasts, etc.) We teach our couples how to pose and interact during their engagement session so they are naturals on the wedding day and don’t need quite as much instruction from us!
I am more than willing to travel for engagement sessions! We actually love it when our couples ask us to photograph them in a location that means something special to them! We book engagement sessions typically three to six months in advance and include 60 miles of travel. Travel beyond 60 miles is available with an included $1.00/mile travel fee.
We average 75-100 final images per hour that we're actively shooting throughout the day. We love delivering our client’s files quickly and easily via an online gallery. You will have the ability to print, share and download your images as much as you want. We believe in freely sharing our work because that is what we would want if we were in your shoes!
No, becasue I already love you and I know that having a person to not only get different angles but capture detail shots and fun moments with your guests while we are away at sunset. A second shooter makes all the difference in the world when it comes down to time management, because we all know that even the best of plans change. If you have to run tight on time un-expectantly, a second shooter will give you breathing room to still make sure all of the special aspects that you took so much time and care in planning for are still captured, no matter the time conflicts that might arise.... you will thank me, I promise!
You and your partner will be smiling and adoring one another the entire time! Which makes it so easy for me to capture your love... but many couples forget to talk to their bridal party about smiling and being aware of their reactions. When I am getting beautiful couple shots during the ceremony the bridal party's faces can make or tragically detract from the special moment.
It’s a valid fear. You can’t re-do your wedding day! So, is it possible to be able to enjoy your wedding day, knowing for certain that you are going to love your images when all is said and done? Well, I can tell you that the answer to that question is “Yes.” You can know for sure that you’re in good hands... between myself and my second shooter we capture all the details and the extra camera also provides a sense of security knowing there is back up of the day as well as different angles and moments captured.
