Highlights of 2013 | Wedding Details

Sometimes the title of "photographer" feels insufficient to what my job really entails.  I believe it's about so much more than just capturing a cool shot or two.  My job is not just to be a photographer, it's to be a storyteller.  The story of a wedding day -nearly any wedding day- will inherently be filled with emotion, drama, humor, and everything in between.  To capture all of that in a way that makes anyone who views the photos feel like they're actually there experiencing the day is my goal with every wedding.

For me, the details of the wedding day -the dress, the shoes, the venue, the flowers- all help set the context for the story to be told.  That's not to say the day should be about having the most beautiful gown, most stunning venue, most blinging ring, or most delicious cake.  Those little details are not all there is to the wedding, of course.  But when the special touches have meaning to the couple, when they represent the couples' own style and interests and history together, they can go a long way in telling you not just what the wedding day looked like but who the couple truly is.  I love seeing the myriad ways couples are able to express themselves through the details and I especially love capturing those details in a way that sets the scene for their love story to unfold.

  1. I like the way you explained how the details contribute a great deal to telling the overall story. You're so right, an album full of images of the bride and groom and the standard group shots would be very boring and not very personal. Your approach is beautiful and it shows in your stunning images. xo

  2. I just swoon over your images & wedding style...

  3. I just swoon over your images & editing style...

  4. Absolutely love these shots! The details are so important to me, too. It's hard to balance the desire to have a gorgeous wedding with getting too weighed down by the "stuff," not the emotion, but I really tried to focus on the details of our own wedding without losing the big picture. I have a hunch your lovely couples do, too!

  5. Well, I swoon over you so we're even. ;)

  6. Thank you Carole! It's true, if you just want a photo to frame, of course the couples photos or group photos would probably be chosen. But for an album or photo book, the details truly help the viewer feel like they were actually there on the wedding day. Hope you have a great weekend! xo

  7. Always love seeing these little details, they are all little things adding up to make your day even more beatiful and it's nice seeing what other people do! My favourites are always the jewelry shots :-) I'm a sucker for all things shiny and the styles are always so different from what we pick here.

  8. so many beautiful shoes and dresses and flowers and vases and cakes. just lovely.
