I was in disbelief at how amazing you make me look! You manage to capture such genuine moments that I feel like I’m seeing my true self through someone else’s eyes. … although feeling so stripped down and vulnerable in your pictures is shocking at first, it makes me feel truly beautiful. Usually when someone takes a picture of me, I look for all the possible flaws that can be seen: skin imperfections, awkward poses or expressions etc.. but whenever you’ve taken pictures of me I’ve been like “wow! I’m gorgeous!”
Your pictures make me love myself. 🙂
When I first saw your work … it really enchanted me. It’s always slightly nerve-wracking working with a photographer for the first time, but you were easy to work with and made me feel comfortable immediately. You are so friendly … shooting with you has definitely turned out to be worth it!
“I was worried I might be more shy in front of the camera or that the setting might make us (Mark and Me) look like we were posing too much, but I couldn’t have been more wrong! The entire shoot felt so natural, we were both relaxed and comfortable the whole time and the end results were amazing! Being able to remember an occasion we spent together and have pictures that show the love we feel for each other captured at the time is such a gift! Many years from now I can see us showing our kids these pictures as an example of what love should be like Mark and I are so lucky that you have such a talent for capturing a moment of emotion otherwise we could be two people that had never met before, posing for a camera. Instead, I feel like even if I were somebody else looking in, I can see the years of deep rooted love between us.”

Your passion to shoot in natural light I feel is what brings out these awesome shots, and your fun loving nature helps capture such special moments; nothing felt forced it all just simply flowed.
