Couples

Love Above All

There is an intangible something when it comes to photographing couples. The connection between two people, be it a couple deeply in love, or simply best friends, that allows a brief window into the relationship. The opportunity to document two people is a voyeuristic chronicle of their story. Couple sessions are a wonderful, unique opportunity to capture some of the most amazing connections that can exist between people. We seek out shared moments, a gentle smile that comes with a caress, a full belly laugh created the way only they know how to. It is a privilege to be allowed this exclusive behind the scenes look into what makes a couple, great.

The Creative Process

01.

The Concept

The moment a portrait session is booked, the creative process begins. A discovery conversation will illuminate goals, artistic direction and overall design of the shoot. During this call we’ll discuss any creative ideas you have, location possibilities, as well as anything else you might want to cover. This conversation will open up a dialogue that will give you the opportunity to articulate your vision. Working together, we will craft a firm understanding of what you hope to achieve and allow us to put the necessary pieces in place.

The styling

Once we have a solid vision, I will work with you to pull together the necessary styling to bring your vision to fruition. I love the opportunity to be as involved as you wish during this step in the process. Whether its erecting an entire set for a session or simply styling oneself, I am happy to be as hands on, or off, as needed. Likewise, some ideas are bigger than others and require additional vendors to create. I can leverage my relationships to act as liaison to bring on the necessary teams.

The Production

The last step in the process is the shoot itself. With creative direction in hand and a chosen shoot date, I will work to secure the necessary location for the session. Once on set, the magic can flow. During the shoot, I will work to calm any nerves, allowing your personality to shine through. After the session, I will get to work editing the images, ultimately delivering you a digital gallery of gorgeous imagery where you will be able to download the files as well as order any printed needs that you might have.

If in this moment I crash into you, then let me drive head-on to find you.

To observe is to capture an image in one’s mind that illuminates what others might not see. To photograph is to document a moment, an intricacy, that allows us to discern something about the subject without ever speaking. It is through this process that we move to understand one another, who we are, why we do, and perhaps even what we hope. There is a beauty to know a bit about someone without ever sharing a word, much like nodding hello to a stranger as you walk down a street.
