While I often travel, I am primarily a Traverse City Wedding Photographer. If you want to hold your wedding at one of many wineries in Traverse City, host an outdoor ceremony with a barn reception, get eloped on Mackinac Island, have a small celebration on a Lake Michigan beach, gather your friends and family for a dinner party, travel to another country, or keep it traditional, I’d love to capture your day as unique and beautiful as it was. All I need is a couple who is unconditionally in love, and ready to trust me fully with capturing the magic of their day.
I am always there when you need me. My primary role is to be your photographer, but I have experienced enough weddings to know when to step in. I’m often teaching the groom how to pin his first boutonniere, and tux etiquette: a suit jacket’s bottom button should never be fastened. I have become a pro at bustling a wedding dress, and fluffing the train it to its full glory. On your wedding day, I will never be far, and am quick to help in between capturing all the moments as they happen. Although, I won’t be too in your face, I still want you to have a chance to live in the present moment of your wedding day.
I don’t just pose you awkwardly, actually, I don’t do much posing at all.
Not during your wedding anyways, I want you to be fully immersed in every moment of your day so the candid magic can happen. Some even say I can be a fly on the wall. By being less apparent at times, I feel I am able to capture much more intimate and authentic moments as they play out on your wedding day. When the time is right (ex. when we sneak away from the party for sunset photos, or I grab family for photos), I’ll direct you to act and play in a way that creates genuine reactions, real smiles, with poses that look and feel natural.
This is how I get your true personality to come through in my photographs.
