FEATURED STORIES OF LOVE AND ADVENTURE
Hi, I'm Andrea...
My work is all about real moments, connection, emotion, and authenticity. I love being surrounded by nature, couples who aren't afraid to do things differently, and the magic of human connection. I'm not a traditional wedding photographer- awkward poses and Pinterest photos are definitely not my thing! I value photographs that make me feel something.
Take a look around my website, and you'll get a good idea of what my style is like. You'll see photos that are emotional, creative, sometimes moody, often dark, but always authentically beautiful.
IS MY STYLE FOR YOU?
My wedding photography is based on capturing stories and events as they unfold, naturally. I love moments that are unscripted. I want you to feel completely free to be yourselves, no matter what. I don't believe in photo-shopping people to look skinnier or younger, but I do believe in using creativity and artistry in-camera to make the best photos I can.
I can't promise you perfect or perfectly composed photographs- but I can promise you that I put all of my heart and soul into my work. Although it might not be perfect sometimes, it's always unique, it's always real, and it's always meaningful!
I'm a documentary wedding photographer, with an artistic flair. When capturing a wedding day, I spend most of the time creatively documenting things as they happen, with little or no interference. For group portraits I like to keep it simple and natural. For couples portraits, I provide direction to create beautiful portraits that aren't awkward or stiff.
I focus on the moments, the interactions, and the elements that tell the story of your day. You won't see staged photos of your wedding dress, your bouquet, or your rings off of your fingers, because I'd rather capture these details as part of your story. Besides, your dress will always look it's best when you're actually wearing it.
The connection between two people is something that I love to capture in photos. There's this special energy- this intense emotional charge, and I love it when that comes out in my images. I love photos that make me feel something, and if I feel it, then I can't imagine what it must feel like to you!
It's important that we get to know each other on a personal level. I don't want to be just "the photographer" to you. I want to be on more of a "friends" level- this is the only way you'll trust me enough to allow me in to your space and create the best images with you.
Real words from actual clients!

Andrea was unreal awesome - so helpful, accommodating, artistic, professional, and flexible. My husband, family and I loved her and don't have one negative thing to say. She went above and beyond what I would have ever expected and I have very high expectations :-) I will love these photos for a lifetime - thank you Andrea!

Andrea did such a wonderful job capturing our wedding day memories. I can't thank her enough for even spending time outside in the rain to capture the most beautiful pictures. I am constantly getting praise for how beautiful and wonderful it looked. I am so grateful for the time she spent with us and so many beautiful pictures to choose from. Thank you Andrea!
