Cici & Cody

// Wedding

the winter has a secret and few get to see it. 

the most unreal light. and sure, you really have to endure the elements, but you get something you just cant get in other months. 

 

Cici & Cody and me just screaming my face off in amazement.

 

and that wraps my 2017 weddings. for all you sweet little darling that choose me to document your day: thank you. you put your trust in me and i promise that im gonna bring my best game. i’ll be drenched in the cold or barely able to press the shutter – but if you’re down….im there to try some stuff out and make beautiful little somethings of you on your wedding day.

If you’re looking for a TEAM for Hair & Makeup on your wedding, i was blown away from Bridal Beauty Agency who did some insane work on Cici…her makeup was phenomenal on camera and lasted all day thru some intense elements.

Caylee & Jim

// Wedding

there’s some people you meet and you just know: we’re going to be great friends. 

and weddings are the same way. I read the email and i know: I’m gonna shoot the shit out of this wedding. 

 

and that’s Caylee & Jim.

from their first email, thru all the photos and ideas and excel sheets – i knew their wedding was going to one for the books. the amount of planning and manual labor these two along with friends and family went into their day makes me want to pass out. there was some incredible hands working towards this day and it was such a treat to witness it from start to end.

new york never does me wrong. 

I love shooting in the city. you can walk one block and its a completely new setting. if I’m shooting your wedding, its always my goal to incorporate *where* you’re having your wedding. no need to drive elsewhere or plan ahead. that’s the beauty of the city, the light and the people. the unknown and the searching….thats what i live for.

Working with couples who really stay true to themselves and their vision is so incredible and so up my alley. big big thank you to Caylee & Jim for trusting me all along the way and having me document their day.

Thank you to Emily for shooting along side me and being my pump relief.

WAY UP NORTH 2.0

// Workshop

dun dun dun!

I’m so excited to be able to get the secret out…I’m speaking in STOCKHOLM in February at Way Up North. You may or may not remember, that a few years ago, I spoke at their first installation of WUN and since then, they’ve been killing it in bringing photographers from all around the world to speak and challenge and change up the industry. I cant speak high enough of these two fellas and what they’ve created with Way Up North and I’m so honored to be asked back to speak.

Things are a little different this time around #1 – ITS AN ALL FEMALE LINEUP! what the what?! I’m so so excited to see who else they are bringing on and #2 – instead of speaking in front of 500…this time, its going to be in front of a 50 person live in-studio group and then STREAMED WORLD WIDE – so you can be a part of this from literally anywhere in the world and you can stream in from your couch…no ticket to sweden necessary.

I already started writing notes on what I’ll be speaking on and its literally flowwwing out of me, seeping from the seams. this topic, something I really believe in and cant wait to bring it to ya hot. here’s a little bit of what I’ll be speaking on.

“Sure, an amazing photo on the wall is great but what about the feeling, the experience, what went on IN that photo? Sure, having a packed schedule is great but how do those clients feel taken care of? Are they educated, informed and know what to expect?
There’s so much more in being an incredible photographer than the final image. We need to bring an experience, a process, a confidence from start to finish, we need to give more focus and effort to the things unseen when what we’re generally held to is only what is seen on a screen. experience, do you have one?”
