I’m giving away five engagement sessions

To adventurous couples who love spending time outdoors,

are excited to be involved in a creative process, and willing to go with the flow.

This offer is good for only five couples who love getting outside and are happy to take life as it comes.

The couples I choose, will receive an engagement session at no charge! I’ll even throw in a matted 5x7 print from the shoot. (You’ll have the opportunity to purchase more photos if you like, but there’s no obligation.)

Why are these sessions free?

I want to experiment with some photography techniques and styles on some favorite hiking trails, and not have to worry about shooting what’s “expected” at a normal engagement session.

If this sounds like something you and your fiancé would like to be a part of, just fill out the contact info below, give me some details, and I’ll call soon.

An engagement shoot is helpful, because ….

It gives you a chance to work with the photographer you’re considering hiring, before you actually book her to photograph your wedding.

You can answer questions like:

  • Is the photographer fun to work with?

  • Does she make you feel comfortable in front of the camera?

  • Do you love the photographs she takes?

  • Do they capture your personalities?

  • Can you see the love you have for each other in those photos she takes?

Adventurous, creative, compassionate

In addition to being a wedding photographer who takes soulful, quirky and honest photos, I'm also an adventurous traveler and all-round nerd.

I love to hike with my beagle/cattle dog, Roux, and best friend/wife, Sharon.

When I'm not photographing weddings, portraits or corporate events, I work on personal photo projects, visit friends in a memory-care home, play the piano for the gospel choir at Oakhurst Baptist, and volunteer at the Alzheimer’s Association, the International Rescue Committee, and the Breakthru House.
