3 words that describe me best 
Soft hearted | Empath | Sentimental
As cliche as it is, I will cry at your wedding.  I cry with every emotion I have (unfortunately and fortunately)
 I am a huge empath and can quite literally pick up on all emotions around me which I personally feel is a strength in my photography being able to work with excited in love couples. I pick up on small things and capture the in between moments that could be missed otherwise. The way your lover embraces you when you go in for a hug, the way he brushes the hair out of your face before a kiss, the way you belly laugh at your lovers jokes, the way your fingers intertwine together as you hold hands, those are a few of the small detail I love to capture as I feel they speak the loudest and truly tell YOUR love story.
 Since I was a kid I have always romanticized my life as if it was a movie and that shows in how I shoot as well. My work is film inspired and emotionally driven, I like to envoke natural movement and emotions during our shoot so I do prompted/ guided posing, over the standard stand and smile at the camera posing.   I truly obsess. over all things wedding and will be  your wedding bff that you can spam with all the wedding ideas, stressors and excitement and it will never get old or bore me, I will be there celebrating your magical love the entire way! 
On the flip side of my sentimental side, I am an absolute silly goofy mood kinda gal, I want to make you feel comfortable and laughing the entire time to the point you forget I have a camera.  I want your experience with me to be memorable in the best way, just capturing you laughing with your lover and the whole experience feeling very fluid. .  I strive to capture and document your love in the same spirit. I call it the art of noticing, I want to be there but also be a fly on the wall and document the real raw ways you  both show your love without the scripted stuffed poses. I truly believe that every couple I photograph is different and they deserve a wedding that is true to who they are and that should reflect in the photos.
 I will do whatever I can to make it the most incredible day and experience for you, I strive to be more than just your photographer and go above and beyond for my couples. I know how stressful planning a wedding can be and I pretty much am obsessed with details and all things weddings anyways so you can count on me to be there every step of the way. 

No matter what your love story looks like I am here for you. 
So while I serve Las Vegas you can also confide in me no matter where you decide to tie the knot.

Chelsea has followed us through our growing family starting with our maternity pictures to family pictures to newborns all over again. Time and time again I am amazed at how much time and detail she takes in making sure we get the perfect shot. Even when my toddler was being crazy and cranky, she was still able to capture some of my favorite pictures of my little wild child. I will be booking Chelsea for all of our family photos and milestones!
