MY PHILOSOPHY

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 planning a huge party for 200 people you never see. There are all these traditions everyone expects to see at a wedding: a white dress, cake cutting…what if you don’t like cake? Your husband reaching under your dress in front of grandma to pull off a sweaty garter. Throwing flowers at a group of your girlfriends while the DJ plays 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’ve all passed away. 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

My approach is more documentary style, where I like to be a fly on the wall and capture moments naturally. While I love to carve out some time for couples portraits, I don’t want your wedding day to feel like a photoshoot. I’m less about the posed photos and more about anticipating moments and capturing emotion. On your 50th anniversary, I want you to look back at your photos and remember how you felt at that specific moment in time.

Iron + Honey clients value photography, love exploring new places, and aren’t afraid to be vulnerable in front of the lens. Call me biased, but I think photography is one of the most important wedding investments. After all is said and done, they’re the only thing you’ll have to remember your best day. I love photographing new environments and working with light and textures. And most importantly, I love capturing what is unique about you and your partner’s relationship; all the quirks that make you who you are together.

There’s nothing wrong with traditional posed photos and I’ll get those group family shots and bridal party photos if you want them. But if you’re just looking for someone to show up and recreate everything on your Pinterest board, we probably aren’t the best fit.

I know 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! I love following my couples on social media to get to know them more before their wedding and afterward while they’re celebrating all the exciting milestones in their new 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!
