frequently asked questions
WHAT IS YOUR PHOTOGRAPHIC STYLE?
I desire to express, timeless, elegant & romantic photos for every bride and groom to look back on the moment they said “I do”. My images are more about quality and getting a fine art look. Film photography is my inspiration! I love soft images with a pop of color and natural skin tones! I capture real moments complimented with simply beautiful posing when needed.
