More Than A Photographer

First of all, welcome to my new website! It’s a joy for me to share my passion with you in hopes that you get to know me better! For the past few years as a wedding photographer, I have found that there’s no experience that you can’t learn from. Each opportunity holds its own strengths and weaknesses, goods and bads, pros and cons. If I were to share one factor I’ve encountered each time I shoot a wedding, it’s that I’m more than just a photographer. 

I spend almost 90% of the wedding day with the bride. As I’m constantly capturing those timeless images, I’m also straightening her dress, fixing a stray hair, and keeping the veil out of her face when the wind is blowing the wrong way. I’m there to encourage her, ensure her that her day is going to be simply stunning, and that she is FINALLY GETTING MARRIED! When she needs a glass of water or a tissue, I’m there. When a family member gets lost on the way to the church, I’m there. When she wants an honest opinion, I’m there. I sincerely love each and every one of these small, but significant actions, and I’ll never get tired of them. 

Never take for granted the little moments that bring you closer to those you are surrounded by. Building substantial relationships with my clients is my desire each day. To the next AMP bride, I’ll be more than your photographer, I’ll be your best friend.
