How I cater to Offbeat Brides

If I’m being honest, I’m a little offbeat myself. If you put any stock in high school superlatives, you might like to know that I was voted both “Most Unique” and “Class Dramatist.” If you don’t put any stock in yearbook superlatives, just know that I’m a tiny bit weird and pretty good at projecting my voice. My background is varied but has always been unified by my desire to view and create art—which really works to my advantage as a wedding photographer. Wedding days are so incredibly beautiful, whether they take the form of a huge party at a fancy hotel or an intimate ceremony in someone’s backyard, and I feel the weight and privilege of that beauty with every wedding I’m lucky enough to work on. What can be less beautiful sometimes is the process of planning those gorgeous gatherings.

I like Offbeat Bride because it showcases weddings that don’t always fit a certain mold, and that’s okay. When I planned my own wedding I found myself often feeling like an Other as I stepped into bridal shops and was asked repeatedly about the groom—a person that did not exist in my plans for a wedding to my beautiful wife. So as I work alongside brides and grooms and other people, I do everything I can to make them feel heard, important, and like whoever they are is exactly right for the event they’re planning. Because it’s true. I think my work speaks for itself, so I’m hopeful this description speaks to the experience of working with me — something that I pride myself on just as much as the portraits I take.

“I just love the pictures! Thank you so much! You somehow captured us so well in spite of how awkward we were/are! I’m so impressed with your professionalism and the little touches that really make such a difference. Your ability to communicate and listen to your customers is exceptional.”
