THE

EXPERIENCE

YOU'RE

NOT

AWKWARD

Exhibit A:

Me.

You've Just Had Awkward Photos Taken

I

GOT

YOU

Think of it more like a low key hangout. I'll just happen to have a camera on me. You dont have to perform some wild love dance. There's no secret tangled pose you have to do. Trust me, it's easier than you think.

ANTI -CHEESE

ANTI -POSING

ANTI-ORDINARY

-John Lennon

Catching you with your guard down being your true selves together. Not some forced “ok now smile…” or weird intimate cues to try and get you to make out in front of me. Lennon said it best when he said "My role in society, or any artist’s or poet’s role, is to try and express what we all feel. Not to tell people how to feel. Not as a preacher, not as a leader, but as a reflection of us all.”

I’m really drawn to candid images of couples from the 60’s and 70’s. A time when people really let their hair down, literally and figuratively. I want your photos to feel candid like some snap shots one of your close friends just happen to catch. After all, isnt life just a series of snap shots? WHOA SO META PHIL!

My couples want wedding photos that don't look like... wedding photos.

YOUR DRESS MIGHT GET A LITTLE DIRTY. THE WIND MIGHT JUST BLOW YOUR HAIR EVER SO SLIGHTLY. YOU MIGHT ACCIDENTALLY STEP IN A PUDDLE. SOME VASE ON A TABLE MY GET KNOCKED OVER. HEAVEN FORBID IT SPRINKLES A LITTLE. YOU CAN THINK OF THESE THINGS AS TRAGEDIES OR SIMPLLY EMBRACE THEM AS PART OF YOUR STORY AND LAUGH ABOUT IT.

PRETTY CHILL GO WITH THE FLOW KINDA HUMANS

All we need is love, and some good light.

We don’t need to shoot on the summit of Mt Everest for epic photos. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a sucker for a good hilltop sunset or a secret field in the middle of nowhere but the best photos sometimes are the ones that don’t try so hard. Look at the iconic photos of Serge and Jane Birkin, they’re just chilling on some front porch steps most the time. The photos should resemble who you two are! Not into big hikes? Lets hang in your back yard, or go on your favorite neighborhood sunset walk. Or put on a pot of coffee and hang out in your living room. Whatever it is that makes you two you two, thats what we should shoot.

Let's make

it beautiful.
