Authentic Weddings

Your wedding is more than an “event”.
You are not just consumers following bridal industry trends.
You are not chasing perceived perfection.
Your wedding is about two people and the intimate group of friends and family that surround and support you.
Your love is deep and genuine, honest and comfortably laid-back.
Your wedding will be an authentic celebration of that love and of your eternal commitment to sustaining each other.
The images that tell the story of your love will dig to the heart of your connection, and document the pure emotions of your day.
The story that the images capture will be preserved in timeless heirlooms and shared with joy.

Why is a photographer sharing wedding planning advice?? 

While I did briefly toy with a career as a wedding planner, I realized that my passion truly lied in the personal connections and not in the coordination of minute details. This particular piece of guidance comes from a strong belief that the typical modern concept of a wedding is not what every couple truly desires.  With the experience of planning our own intimate wedding, an extra nine years of reflection on that experience, and the insight of planning, attending, and photographing dozens of weddings in those years, I wanted to share my thoughts on planning a simplified and deeply authentic wedding celebration.

I am honoured to gift this knowledge to like-minded couples who value meaningful shared experiences rather than striving for some perceived version of perfection and status.
