My Philosophy

All you need to get married are two people who want to commit their lives to one another and a marriage license. Everything else is optional. Flowers are optional, the big poofy dress or fancy suit is optional, a party is optional… even photography is optional. If you want those things, you should have them – and by no means is there anything wrong with wanting them – but that first thing… the two people ready to commit their lives thing… that’s all you really need. And that’s what I believe in and specialize in… marriages. Not weddings.

I believe in telling the story of your day authentically; I believe you should do or have whatever you want on your wedding day, not what the wedding industry says you should have; I believe in marriage equality; and I believe that whatever way you choose to marry…  in the chapel at City Hall or at sunset in Central Park or on a cold and snowy day… is the perfect way to marry.

Now this is usually the part where a photographer will tell you how many awards they’ve won and how many weddings they’ve had published in The Knot Magazine. I don’t actually care about any of that stuff, and I’m guessing you probably don’t either. You can get a stack of awards, and still not be able to tell a story with your photographs in an honest, real way.

I don’t shoot to have my work published on the myriad of wedding blogs out there… I shoot for you.
