Turquoise lover. Jesus follower. Pug and Star Wars obsessed. I'd rather spend a night in with a good book than go find a crowd. Chinese food is life; pizza is a close second. September 2017 I married the most amazing man out in the Black Hills. There were 20 people, my dad did the ceremony, and we ate pasta afterwards. Basically, a dream come true. 

I've spent most of my life fighting against the idea I have to fit into other people's definitions and I think it's probably only natural its spilled into the way I approach weddings. 

You see, I think the wedding situation has gotten a little out of control. I see a lot of people stressed out while trying to meet people's expectations and fulfill certain ideas of what a wedding is supposed to be. 

But here's the thing...your wedding can be whatever you want it to be. The only rule you need to follow: Do what makes you happy

And I think the same thing applies to your photography. Ban pinterest and recreating photos you've seen at 12 other weddings. Forget planning your day around hours and hours of posed photos. 

I just want you to relax; feel beautiful; and enjoy the people surrounding you. Live your life on your wedding day. Leave the documenting to me.
