I’ve been a bit of a nomad these past few weeks ⛰ and between the travel and taking some time offline and out of my normal routine I’ve been much more inspired than I have been for some time 🤍🌿✨ I can be fairly impatient, so it’s hard to not fall down the rabbit hole right away, but there are so many new things I want to bring to my photography & my business. There’s been some challenges during the transition of moving from Japan back Stateside, but there is so much good stuff coming ✨ stay tuned.

Happy PRIDE month! ❤️🧡💛💚💙 (Giveaway Details Keep Reading)

This month we celebrate love, all love. When I first started doing photography, I had a couple reach out and ask if I was “okay working with a same s*x couple?” It took me aback when they told me they had been turned away from multiple photographers because of it and wanted to be sure…

The majority of the important people in my life belong to this community. My family belongs to this community. I’m extremely passionate about people of all shapes, sizes, colors, identities, and backgrounds to be who they are and to openly and freely love who they love 🤍

I realized then that I wasn’t doing enough to let people know that their love is safe with me. Not only that, but their stories are some of the most important to capture and celebrate. So the first year I was in business I began my Pride month giveaway. Every year I give away a session to a LGBTQ+ couple to tell their story and celebrate their love. I’ve met some of the most beautiful, wonderful and genuine people through those sessions, and its truly one of my favorite parts of the year.

This year, with the state of the world being the way it is, being a supportive ally feels more important than ever. So I’ve decided to make the giveaway this year even more special 🤍

✨I’m giving away a full day wedding/elopement photography package to one LGBTQ+ couple who is getting married between now and June 2023! Anywhere within the US, travel fees included. ✨

The giveaway will start on Monday June 6th, in a separate post and the details of how to win will be posted there. So be sure to follow along to stay up to date!

I’m so excited to share more about how to win! And I’m even more excited to celebrate along with you all this month 🤍 love is love and we need that more than ever 🌈

Turns out running a business, moving across the world, house hunting, trying to eat well and get adequate sleep is harder than I thought 🫠 I’ve been editing around the clock this week while juggling all the details of our move and ya girl is tired. Trying to slow down and enjoy the process the best as I can since I’ll be taking a little break from work during the transition. I truly love my work, and my clients and I’ve been getting pretty sentimental as our time in Japan rapidly approaches it’s end. Editing the last galleries I’ll shoot here is bittersweet 🥺 but I’m ready for whats next 🤍✨✈️

Friendly reminder as it continues to rain, being stuck inside with the love of your life isn’t too bad 👀🔥

Guys… the time has come. I’ve shot my last wedding while living in Japan 🇯🇵🥺 Its a bit surreal tbh…It’s been a wild & wonderful experience in growth and love.

It’s a bittersweet chapter to close, but I’m excited to embrace what’s next 🤍✨🌿 thank you to all my couples for all the love and support over the years and for trusting me with your stories 🖤

Did y’all know I also have a degree in poetry? In college I got very meta and wrote this piece about hands and how they were a reoccurring motif in my other poetry. I think about that piece a lot, I’ve always found hands to be such an expressive part of us, they tell a story without even trying. They hold and release tension in such an instinctual way. When I’m photographing your day, I want to capture those moments that are instinctual, the ones you may not have even noticed. The instinctual act of holding her close to you knowing you get to do so forever. I think about poetry a lot when I’m shooting, I think about shooting past the metaphor, and the dressings and capturing the meaning beyond it all. To some, it’s just a photo of his hands on her back, to them it’s a part of their story unfolding in its most authentic form ✨🤍🌿

Rest ✨🌿

Hey guys, long time no post! Most of you know I had the opportunity to go on a last minute trip stateside to spend time with my friends & family and do a bit of work on the east coast 🤍 it’s honestly been really refreshing. I’m coming upon a time of transition in life and business and have been reflecting on how to embrace change when it feels overwhelming. I easily get wrapped up in what I’m doing and often don’t give myself time to think about where I’m going, as I’m sure a lot of us do. But giving myself some time to reflect, enjoy time with my loved ones, and plan for the future has been super inspiring ✨🌿 so if you’re feeling overwhelmed, distracted, or searching… it’s okay to give yourself permission to rest 🤍✨🌿

You & only you…✨

Often times our wedding day is a blur. Seasoned married folk will always tell you the same thing, “It goes by so fast!” But what does that mean? And how do we slow the seconds down and savor every precious moment?

My biggest piece of advice is this: Find ways to remind yourselves why you are celebrating in the first place. Its so easy to get caught up in the planning, interacting with guests, worrying about food, that we forget to truly connect with your partner. Finding ways to ground yourselves together can help from being swept away in the day. Maybe its a song, a sweet codeword between the both of you, or making sure you get to slip away from the dance floor to have a private moment together. Anything that is something shared between the two of you, and no one else ✨

Because at the end of the day, you & only you is all that matters ✨🤍🌿

Chasing some opportunities and getting out of Oki for a little bit✨🌲 one of my goals this year was to follow my creativity more, to collaborate, and explore areas of photography I haven’t yet so I can serve the people I capture better. So I can tell their story in a way that elevates and honors their moments. I’ve been feeling a little stuck lately, and an opportunity presented itself to go back stateside for a few weeks and explore a bit, so to honor that commitment to growth this year, I’m excited to do some exploring, meet new people and make some art! ✨🌿 I’m going to post my travel dates in my story, if you want to link up for coffee, to shoot together, or to have me capture something meaningful in your story, PLEASE shoot me a DM! 🤍🌿✨ Don’t worry Oki peeps, I’ll be back in a few weeks with updated availability and announcing some HUGE projects for other photographers & creatives when I get back! Teaser coming soon 😉🤍✨🌿

Love among the trees 🌲✨

I love wooded locations! In fact I’m a little biased since I got married in a park in the woods myself 🌲✨ the trees are peaceful, rooted, strong and hold just the right amount of mystery. I think the locations that we say “I do” at should be more than beautiful backdrops. The setting can make or break your day, so make sure its a place you want to be 🌲✨ and for me, I love every moment spent with the trees ✨

Brides, where are you saying “I do” in 2022? 👀

The wait… ✨

That anticipation before the first look is one of those moments I love capturing 🤍 maybe an unpopular thought, but I think the moments leading up to the first look are just as important as the first look itself!

Theres always jitters of excitement and then a moment of serene calm that washes over you. Then you see your person, and that excitement rushes back because you know its going to be the best day of your life ✨🌿

I mean, how beautiful is that in its entirety? It’s more than just seeing each other in your wedding clothes. It’s holding your breath and letting it go with the most pure form if reassurance 🌿✨

Not gonna lie guys, lockdown is getting me good this time around 🥲

I’ve been struggling to keep on task, finding the motivation to work on admin stuff is challenging when I’ve had to cancel some really fun shoots. The actual shooting is such a small part of my overall job, but its the part I need the most to fill my cup.

I’ve taken some time off from posting, and I think that was needed. But as I plan to wind thing down here in Oki, still with no idea where we are going next, only that it will happen soon, I’m left feeling… stuck. Creatively, physically, stuck inside mulling my next move until its been a week and I’ve done nothing.

I say all this not to complain, but in the hopes that if my fellow creatives out there are feeling the same, you’ll know you’re not alone 🤍✨🌿 not all parts of the journey are instagram-able, but the lows make the highs feel even higher ✨

One of my goals this year was to read more books 🌿

I used to read like crazy when I was a kid! And when I had aspirations of becoming a writer, I read a lot while getting my degree. Then I stopped. And I had maybe read one book in the past 5 years 😅 I always told myself I just don’t have time as I tried to learn more about being a better photographer. But I’ve learned that in order to be a better photographer I need to understand more about business, art, and the human connection.

Last year when I was diagnosed with ADHD I finally understood why reading was so difficult for me as an adult and to help that this year I started listening to audiobooks ✨I’ve finished 3 books since the beginning of the year and am feeling amazing!

I feel the itch in my little creative brain to make things again in a way I haven’t in a long time. Understanding the world, how we think, how we feel, allows us as artists to see past the surface and tell the story that is happening deeper down 🤍

So far I’ve read a book on psychology, an autobiography, and a book on creative process! So here comes the question… what are you reading and what should I read next? 👀✨leave me those recommendations below! I’m open to anything!

I’ve really been into black and white images lately 🤍 there’s something so magical and moving in them. Maybe its their lack of color, but they always leave me wanting more, in a good way! Like the way you feel after finishing a good book, or a song you wish would have been a minute longer. Striping away the color allows for the eye to focus on the emotion in the image, and as I strive to be a better storyteller I think thats why I find myself increasingly more drawn to them 🖤 fun fact! All of the wedding photos from my own wedding I have printed in my house are the black and white copies! Do you prefer b&w photos, or color? Let me know in the comments 🤍🖤🤍

Thanks again Kym! You were super easy to work with! This event has been in the works for the past 6 mths: we started in Feb but with COVID and the job we couldn’t match it up. It’s been touch and go but we made it happen! Y’all she has plenty of good spots on the island and once I told her what I was trying to accomplish she was able to make it happen! Thanks again Kym!
