Congratulations on your engagement, this is an exciting time for you!  Let's work together to make your wedding day truly memorable! I want to focus on what's most important to you.  I include a lot of face time before we even start shooting to create a plan around the day.  My goal is to immortalize your love story in vivid & memorable images that you'll cherish forever.  My style tends to lean towards bright, colorful and emotional.  I'm very laid back and easy to talk to, I don't want to force your wedding day to fit around my shooting.  I have over 14 years of experience and love working with people to capture genuine happiness.

If you have questions, let's chat over coffee; I prefer to meet face-to-face anyway!

Let's face it, there are A LOT of photographers out there.  I want to share some topics with you to help narrow down your search.

Experience:  It's really easy to look like you know what you're doing online.  Ask to see entire albums from a whole wedding as opposed to just highlights; this is something I offer up openly with every bride I sit down with.  Ask how long they have been shooting, as I said I've been perfecting my craft since about 2006.  I focus on capturing things the right way so I don't have to use photoshop gimicks to recover your images. I believe in quality > quantity ALWAYS, I'm going to take time to set up lighting and make sure its done right for you.

Communication:  How easy it is to contact your photographer leading up to your big day? Or more importantly after?  I shoot full time and have 100% of my time dedicated into my business and am always here with questions/concerns.  I've heard horror stories of photographers ghosting their clients, leaving them for months waiting for completed images.  I can be reached via phone, text, e-mail, Facebook, Instagram anytime - I'm here for you anytime.

Delivery:  What kind of experience do you expect once your photos are finished?  Most people just throw a thumb drive at you and send you on your way never to be heard from again.  All of my packages do include digital files, which are presented in a keepsake box to stay safe.  You'll you get a private gallery online to easily share with friends and family 24/7.  From here not only can you re-download your images, but you can easily place orders for high quality prints & enlargements!

Reviews:  This one is self explanatory, search the company you're considering; if it's even a company at all..  Lot's of hobbyist photographers buy a camera and magically think they know what they are doing.  This goes hand in hand with the experience bit above.  Forward Exposure had many reviews across multiple platforms from real clients, just google me - you'll see.  This can help you distinguish the hobbyist form the professional.
