Wedding: Matt & Alessa

Saturday dawned bright and clear. Alessa and eight bridesmaids filled Alessa’s parents’ sun-room, casually chatting and sipping orange juice amidst makeup bags, curling irons and clouds of hairspray.

Everyone was excited but Alessa absolutely glowed; she couldn’t keep a smile from her face. From early-morning prep to late-night dancing, she bubbled with almost-tangible joy!

Matt and Alessa’s day was a dream. It went smoothly from start to finish; every detail was attended to, from the succulent-and-rose bouquets to the family pictures.

I’m SO excited to share a few images. Enjoy!

 

Why “Capture the Details” Matters to You

The tagline of my business, “Capture the Details,” is about delight. It’s also creating high-quality photos that are valuable to you!

Photography has a unique way of seeing beyond the big picture. It snags and freezes small moments, the special blips in time that might otherwise be missed. (An infant’s smile, an unplanned moment between siblings or an engaged couple, the details on a dress or wrinkles on a hand.)

It’s those pieces that compile the whole. In addition to the big picture, I am committed to capturing each special detail so your memories can be sharper.

So if I ask to take a picture of your shoes or the bracelets on your wrist, don’t be surprised! I’m capturing moments for you to remember later on.

Senior Session: Evan & Kreigh

Evan is a reader; Kreigh enjoys track and basketball. Both boys are working toward college, finishing their high school careers with excellence. They’re gifted young men!

I enjoyed spending time Kreigh and Evan, capturing their distinct personalities and learning about their lives. Not only that, the brothers are excellent models.

Enjoy!

Senior Session: Isaac

It was such a pleasure to spend time with Isaac and capture his laid-back, cheerful personality! From basketball to pre-med courses in the fall, Isaac is both talented and personable.

5 Helpful Tips for Family Sessions

Ever wonder how to prepare for your family photo shoot? There are several steps you can take to ensure your photos look their best.

  1. Choose outfits that match… but aren’t identical! Pick complementing patterns or colors that look great on everyone.
  2. Bring objects that have personal significance. Items include: a kitchen chair, books, framed pictures and quilts. Not only will they will help set you at ease, items like these will create memories for years to come!
  3. Think about posing ahead of time. Is there a particular angle or grouping you like? Saw something cute on Pinterest? Be sure to save these ideas and suggest them to your photographer.
  4. The camera doesn’t bite! The best photos are the ones you’re laughing in– so be yourself! Tell inside jokes, tickle each other and have normal conversations right in front of the camera.
  5. Get to know your photographer’s style. If you don’t like what you see on their website, don’t hire them! Your photographer will take pictures according to their style. Make sure you like what they do.
