My heart beats for imperfect people who definitely don't have it all together, but have found it all in those they love the most. For the people who are getting married on their family farm, or in their hometown, not because they have to ... but because they want their marriage to start in the place where they first remember feeling alive. And for the beautiful chaos of family life -- with all of it's sweet, "going by way too fast," details.
I'm originally from Indianapolis, and I've been shooting weddings and family sessions here in the Ohio Valley for nearly three years now. Growing up in a city, I can tell you that this small place on the map has taught me big things. Most importantly, that it's not about where you are - but who you're with. (Cheesy maybe. But seriously ... it's true!) And while I'm definitely up for traveling for work, I also am a big believer that there's a lot of beauty right in our backyards.
I'm a sucker for splashing through creeks. For the bride who isn't afraid to go barefoot and get her dress dirty. And for the couple who doesn't need the frills, but desperately wants the memories.
That's my tribe.
IF THAT SOUNDS LIKE YOU, I'D LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU.
I'm a good fit, artistically, for the Mama who wants images of the things she's afraid she'll forget ... like what it felt like when the little hands she helped create reached up for her face. Or how they were once so small, she could scoop them up, and spin them around so fast they'd both get dizzy.
