Story

It was portrait time for their wedding and the groom in the maroon tux worked at the venue so he took us to a beautiful hill for photos. We had so much time for their photos so we did not feel rushed at all and felt so at ease and comfortable.

I approach groom/groom wedding couples the same as I approach heterosexual couples. The couple was very comfortable around me and we developed a friendship as well that helped with the lack of direction I had to give them. It was a very easy and laid-back day.

I am a sap. I cry multiple times a day. The world holds so much beauty that I am constantly overwhelmed by its presence – in the best way. If I could use this silly little camera to even begin to touch on the beauty that is between people – the ugly, the hopeful, the whole story – then that’s where I feel like I’ve succeeded as an artist – and human.

Time is fleeting and nothing is permanent – which makes it that much more beautiful.
