the APPROACH

"When I look through my lens, I don't just see.  I feel."
-Amanda Donaho

"The photographs I create for my couples outlast their own lifetime.

They are images that tell stories we won't be able to tell ourselves.

That realization will forever keep me grounded."

I love when my babies lean their head on me, mid playing a game.  Knowing they'll find comfort.
I love the feeling of all 5 of my senses alive & working well when I’m on foreign soil.
I love the soft breeze through an open window, curtains blowing, shadows dancing across the room.
I love being a reliable friend. The one people come to for advice or a hug.
I love late night deep conversations while curled up on the couch.
I love watching other people find what they’re passionate about & go do the damn thing.
I love art, and music & the sense of peace I have when I’m immersed in either.


on a personal note

As a self-proclaimed foodie & world traveler, I was touched to learn of Chef José Andrés and his incredible humanitarian project World Central Kitchen.  At weddings, I watch as bellies are filled while communities gather around to support one another; breaking bread together in celebration.  Additionally, I've worked in other countries to help bring in food & supplies to those lacking, creating friendships in the process. 

Food doesn't just sustain us, it unites us.

José & his team at WCK work as first responders in the food crisis that ultimately impacts areas after disaster strikes.  Not only are they filling the immediate need for providing meals, but they do so in a way that is honoring & respectful of the cultures they are immersed in.  Understanding what recipes to create, how to prepare them, hiring locals to stimulate the economy, and ultimately delivering incredible delicious meals.

Beginning in 2022, a portion of proceeds from each wedding commission client will go to support the work WCK is doing.  While we feast in celebration, let us not forget those in need.
