I am mesmerized by the rituals and ceremonies that define our lives as humans. Weddings are remarkable celebrations of romance, family, and joy. The process of photographing a wedding is full of mystery, celebration, and beauty. I adore it.
These are a few of my favorite images that I have photographed over the last thirteen years all over the world of destination weddings, newborn babies, fine art botanicals, candid family portraits and vintage maternity photos. My travel for clients has spanned from Boulder, Vail, Denver, Belize, Hawaii, Florida, Sydney, Mystic, Milwaukee, Florida, Bozeman, Costa Rica, Michigan, Mexico, Seattle, Aspen and Fiji!
My work might be called photojournalistic, since it documents an event’s storyline through un-staged shots. However, my images are unique in their softness, depth, and romance. Ideally each one of my final images will have the essence of a gorgeous vintage print found curled up in a grandmother’s attic – a timeless treasure.
If you are keeping your wedding sweet and simple, do not miss the opportunity to have enchanting images created. I have accompanied many a couple to a castle in Ireland, a beach in Galveston, ruins in Belize, a tiny wedding chapel in Kauai, a snowy Aspen woodland. If you are captivated by Recherché Photography’s sumptuous style, do not hesitate to inquire about travel costs. They are typically more reasonable than expected. Just call or email to start the conversation of how I can capture the charm of your wedding even (and maybe especially) if it is just the two of you!
