"To photograph truthfully and effectively is to see beneath the surfaces and record the qualities of nature and humanity which live or are latent in all things."
This quote by Ansel Adams, written in my journal over 10 years ago and one I return to often, epitomizes my philosophy towards the art of photography. To me, "seeing beneath the surface" means genuinely capturing the essence of my subject. Every person, every couple, and every family has their own story. Through the relationships we build with you, we come to understand the meaning and significance of your unique story.
One key element of our process is that we get to know you, both in front of the camera and outside our sessions, individually and as a couple or family. From our email exchanges, phone conversations, lunch and coffee dates (and who are we kidding, the occasional cocktail), we strive to build mutual trust and friendship. In doing so, we are able to maintain a specific artistic style in your photographs, yet genuinely reflect your personalities, idiosyncrasies, love, and affection through an intimate and documentary approach.
Our sessions are always relaxed and fun, never forced or uncomfortable. With a heartfelt and creative eye, it is a joy for us to give you a collection of pictures that will forever evoke fun and memorable times.
