My photos tell stories. But not scary ghost stories. I mean, like, the stories that dreams are made of. Like when the good guys triumph, and the bad guys get caught, and the slightly-nerdy guy captures the heart of the beautiful girl who was completely unaware of said slightly-nerdy guy's feelings for her until the end of the story. These are the stories I tell. Over time I've gained experience in turning life's simplest details into beauty and magic. Let me tell your story. Let's create some magic together!!
Just because something is ordinary doesn't mean it isn't magic! I believe even the ordinary can be an adventure.
With my keen and artistic eye I will capture moments as they happened without orchestrating it. My style is identified as being more raw, realistic and factual. I used it before the hipsters did.
The quality of being graceful and stylish. The quality of being pleasingly ingenious.
The use of the imagination. A little creativity never hurt anyone.

Standing still and staring at the camera is out. Walking through a forest or enjoying a drink together in an intimate room while laughing at his dumb (yet adorable) jokes is in.
//Created for the couple that wants to take the time and beautifully document their love for each other and settle in and get comfortable in front of the camera. I want to document the way your hands fit together, the expression he gets when he looks at you, and the one piece of hair he's always putting back behind your ear ... This is the real stuff that makes you, you. So whether you want to hike the hills, take a beach stroll, hang out in a brewery, or spend the morning in your sun-filled living room, let's make art that is a true representation of your connection instead of more snapshots of your smiles.

I chose the word "Boutique" because I am like a small and fine atelier that gives attention to the smallest detail. Lovely things is my favorite thing and I love lovely events :)
It's not uncommon for weddings to take on a life of their own, morphing into something bigger, more stressful, and more expensive than you ever imagined, or particularly wanted! Not to mention the endless (well meaning) advice, expectations, and pressure from friends and family.
With a Boutique Wedding Elopement you still have all the things that make up a magnificent day without all the fuss and pressure leading up to the day! :) No venues to scope out, no guest lists to draft, and maybe best of all, no exorbitant checks to write!
Weddings are a once in a lifetime event that tell the story of two individuals coming together to form one family. My job is to be the narrator of that story - to preserve it for you and future generations to look back on and understand what life, love, and happiness meant to you.
