Of all the photos in my home, I like the ones where we are just us. The pictures that we didn’t know were being taken or the ones where we are in the middle of a great day. I love photos from my grandparents albums. They are genuine and honest, they are personalities on a page and I feel their joy or presence when I look at them. I feel like I knew them through all periods of their lives, even though I didn’t. They are taken at the lake or on their front porch, on a family vacation or somewhere with meaning and memories.

When I say I have a documentary approach to photos, I am taking photos of you as you are, in the moment, photographing how the day felt. The warmth of the sun on your face, the pure reactions, the hugs that last longer than they normally do. I want to storytell and a wedding day creates one of the most beautiful stories.
