I don’t even know where to start. Sometimes you have a vision. You have a goal. You have a photo in your mind. But to be honest, most of the time I don’t. I go with the flow. I capture the moment. Sure you can do set ups, have a vision board, and have a plan, […]

Friends. That is what Larissa and Paul are to me. Sure, we started off as me just being someone who would be photographing their wedding, but I have the incredible pleasure to say that so many of my couples are more than that. They are friends.
