This couple blew my mind. I loved working for and with them. They were adventurous, hilarious, easy to work with, and just KILLED the session. Though my goal is to work with anyone and everyone who comes my way with diligence and excellence, I hope I keep getting couples like this in the future.

It started with a referral from one of Sydneys friends that I had the pleasure of shooting the wedding of, back in 2016. Sydney fell in love with my work. I was so happy to hear that they wanted to book me for what I love to do; Make real moments with my couples, make real stories, invoke real emotion, and show my couple's stories through my photos.

EVERY COUPLE IS DIFFERENT. I try not to pose, I try not to be too formal, I want the photos I take to be a mirror of who the couple actually is, and I think that worked out perfectly during this session.

It really is an art, getting a couple to open up in front of a camera. A lot of couples have a hard time with this, but my favorites are the ones that are fully willing to just love on one another in front of the camera. The photos turn out a million times better.

There was lots of laughter. 

In-between asking them to set aside their la croix so we could shoot, seeing Chris climb up on top of a suspended log 15 feet off the ground, and dodging bikers on the trails, this ended up being one of my favorite engagement shoots ever.


THANK YOU, CHRIS AND SYDNEY! I LOVED SHOOTING FOR YOU TWO.
