Philosophy

"The charm, one might say the genius, of memory is that it is choosy, chancy and temperamental; it rejects the edifying cathedral and indelibly photographs the small boy outside, chewing a hunk of melon in the dust." -Elizabeth Bowen

Our approach to photographing your children, family or wedding, is to capture emotions and relationships in a photojournalistic style. Portraits best convey their subjects when they are in their natural environment. And, whenever possible, we prefer shooting with all natural light. For these two reasons, all of our photo shoots are done on-location or in-home. Our goal is to capture the personality and character of your family in relaxed, warm settings.

Our approach to weddings is to capture spontaneous moments with an artistic eye while working unobtrusively. Our goal is to create images that tell a story & become tangible reminders of the feelings shared between a bride & groom.
