Jeff and Elizabeth approached me about photographing a wedding almost a year ago. Being a close friend of the bride’s family, I was overjoyed and ecstatic about the honor of being asked to capture their wedding day. Like most couples, they were not professional models and were not comfortable posing in front of a camera. Jeff was hesitant to start, but by the end he may have just enjoyed himself!

While the self-perfect Facebook Selfie is cool for some, I don’t strive to capture that “thousand-mile stare” or the couple posing for Vogue. Together, we worked to capture the couple in all their honesty and giddiness at the aspect of getting married and sharing a life together. I felt we not only captured that idea, but so much more in the few hours we spent together.  Engagement sessions are a fantastic way to help me learn more about you as a couple, highlight who you are together, and for you both to be comfortable with me before all the pressure of the big day. Plus, they are a braces-less replacement to your senior pictures on your mom's living room wall. (Let's be honest.)

Thank you Jeff & Elizabeth for letting me capture these moments for you. I’m giddy with excitement as your wedding day approaches.
