Emotive photography with a documentary approach for small weddings in extraordinary places.

"This was not an experience where you need to be posed and told how to look. It's a story to share with your loved ones. One that you can look at for the rest of your life and feel emotionally connected to and remember all the little details that made the day uniquely yours."
