Documentary Wedding Photography


I believe wedding photography is an art. Seeing everything without being seen…being everywhere without being felt…creatively capturing all the memorable moments of a wedding day…that’s what makes documentary wedding photography an art. Photojournalism is my love and my career. When you open a really amazing wedding magazine spread what knocks you off your socks? The real images of that specific wedding day: the details, family emotions, wonderful guests interactions and of-course the couple in their most beautiful moments. I’m here to perfectly document your stunning wedding day, to help you and your family remember everything that happens on your special day that will help define the rest of your lives together.

A wedding……It’s a day filled with emotion and wonder and shared with an incredibly happy bunch of folks, that feel like family to me by the end of the evening. Photographing weddings allow me to professionally explore the part of photography that I love: documentation and emotion~the heartbeat of my photography.

By capturing images for the couple, I am giving them their first family heirloom–a documentation of photographs.  This makes my work feel like an important and powerful thing to me.

With a background in photojournalism and being a mother of two beautiful daughters who throw a tantrum at the mention of any sort of posed photos, I take a very non-invasive approach to my shooting. Within a few moments, my knack of becoming invisible and sinking into the room sets in, letting the most nervous of brides forget that I am in the room, proceeding with a fly-on-the wall approach, quietly capturing your special day as it unfolds–not controlling it.
