WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO BECOME A PHOTOGRAPHER? While attending my brothers wedding I was the over eager family member following the photographer around “making suggestions” I was fascinated and the curiosity wasn’t quenched until I picked the camera up myself and started to get my feet wet. I found so much fulfilment in portraiture and that fulfilment still drives me today.
TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOUR PATH TO GET THERE. Once armed with a camera friends began asking if I might be interested in capturing their wedding and I dove head first into it. Shortly after I moved to Portugal and started photographing weddings full time.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE? Editorial, romantic and timeless.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT WEDDINGS? I really love getting to hear the couples closest friends and family during speeches. I spend, often times, close to a year getting to know the couple themselves and their story of falling in love but on such a special occasion it is so touching to hear what their loved ones share. It is such a celebration of the couple and I adore the sentiment, laughter and thought that goes into this time.
ASIDE FROM FAMILY & FRIENDS, THREE THINGS YOU CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT? Books (preferably fiction, a nice world war II period piece or Harry Potter perhaps) Chapstick & gps.
WHERE WOULD WE FIND YOU ON A SUNDAY MORNING? In bed, coffee and book in hand.
HOW WOULD YOU SPEND YOUR IDEAL DAY OFF? In an ideal world I would be in a beautiful European city exploring, eating croissants and drinking amazing wine. In reality I am usually at home in Michigan and my ideal days off typically look like me catching up on cleaning my house and cuddling my puppy.
