crazy little thing called love
Weddings are weird, right? You decide to spend the rest of your life with someone and then all of a sudden, you’re stressed out trying to buy all these things you think you need in order to throw a huge party for 200 people you never see. There are all these traditions everyone expects to see at a wedding: A white dress. Cutting a cake…what if you don’t like cake? Your husband reaching under your dress in front of everyone to pull off a sweaty garter. Throwing flowers at a group of your girlfriends while you listen to Beyonce’s Single Ladies. If you don’t want to do any of those things, don’t do them. It’s your day, you should spend it doing things that tell the story of you and your future spouse.
Sh*t is about to get heavy here: Some of my favorite possessions are old photographs of family members. Most importantly, ones of my grandparents because they passed away a few years ago. They’ll never be able to attend my wedding. I think it’s important to have photos to look back on times you’ve shared with special people in your lives because eventually, that’s all you’ll have left. So while you’re sharing a dance with your grandpa or your grandma is trying to hold back tears because of how beautiful you look, I’ll be there to get those shots. Just ignore me tearing up behind the lens.
My approach is more documentary style, where I like to be a fly on the wall and capture your day as it unfolds. I don’t want your wedding day to feel like a photo shoot. I’m less about the posed photos and more about anticipating moments and capturing emotion. I want you to look back at your photos years down the road and remember how you felt that day.
Iron + Honey clients value photography and love exploring new places. There’s nothing wrong with wanting traditional posed photos, but if that’s what you’re envisioning, we probably aren’t the best fit.
Wedding planning is stressful. I want to make sure I’m available to answer any questions you have about your day which is why I take on a limited amount of weddings per year. This allows me to provide a more personalized experience and get to know each of my couples. I don’t want to be the stranger with the camera on one of the most important days of your life!
Non-traditional, intimate ceremonies are my jam. If you’re having a larger wedding, feel a connection to my images, and think we’d be a great fit – I still want to hear from you!
