Your wedding day is the culmination of all of the people who raised you, built you and are a part of you. Everyone you love and who loves you plays a role. Your wedding day is incredibly precious. It is a once in a lifetime event that you hand picked the people who are in attendance. I realize the importance of those invitations, the importance of those who helped make you. I am aware of the incredible responsibility and honor that you would be giving to me as your photographer, and I promise to hold your wedding day with the seriousness and gravity that it deserves. I realize that these are the photos that will travel with you until the end of your time. I may have shot over 150 weddings, but I know that this is your first with the person you love. I promise to treat it that way. You can trust me with your story. I promise that as a witness – I will never try and change it. Your wedding photos will be unique not because I made them that way, but because your story is unique. Your family is unique. The life you have lived up until this point is unique and worthy. The beautiful thing is that your wedding day would happen whether or not photos are taken. I want you to think about what you would spend it doing if photos were not a part of that - and I want to make that happen for you. On the wedding day – I will be where my feet are. I will not be thinking about the wedding that I shot the week prior or the one the following week. I will not compare your decorations to the ones in magazines. I will be seeing your day as it is and feeling completely honored and unworthy to be there. I will walk into your wedding day with zero expectations of what should be made and instead be overwhelmed with excitement of what WILL happen.
