I see my job as a wedding photographer to photograph authentic moments of a wedding—I am a wedding storyteller of sorts, doing my best to tell the couple’s real story as opposed to their picture perfect curated story. It is my goal that my couples look at their wedding photographs and feel all the feelings they experienced on their wedding day. I want all those emotions to rush over them like a gushing river each time they look through their wedding album.
Intimate weddings really allow my style of wedding photography to shine because I am able to get to know the couple, their guests and family. This in turn, allows me to create better and more authentic photographs for the couple, because I am able to spend more time gaining my clients’ trust and learning more about what is important to them.
Moments that stand out from this wedding are the first time dad laid eyes on this daughter in the hotel room at the Hyatt Boulder Place, and when the couple’s local friends showed up with bubbles and a sign, on the patio at Wild Standard, to cheer them into their reception. These are examples of the moments I look for at a wedding that help tell the story of the couple.
