LET'S SEE IF WE FIT

Welcome! I’m so glad you’re here. I’d love to help guide you through my work to give you more insight into what I do. It’s really important that we vibe if we choose to work together.

To begin, I don’t follow a rulebook while planning weddings or a specific shot-list while shooting. I work intuitively. My ideal couples believe in the artistic process and trust me to guide them through it. Don’t worry- I’ve got lots of planning options to help you including my custom step-by-step photo guide and private consultations with me! I’ve found when over-structuring you miss opportunities for real and authentic moments. So over the years my style has become more free-flowing.

 

Let’s do something different, because life is so boring if it all looks the same!

Even though I’m not into an overly structured day I do think planning is important. Not strict timelines and cookie cutter shot lists, but the big stuff – like knowing your earrings were made from Grandma’s pearls or that you couldn’t imagine your first look not happening down the aisle. Most importantly, making time for family and for you to relax and take a breath! We will create realistic expectations and I will help guide you through the process of planning beforehand to make your day fun, easy, and stress free.

Working with Robin is incredible. To limit her scope to just photography would be a mistake. Robin supported me in reworking my day of timeline to make it more fluid and less stressful, she gave me helpful tips on my venue and the bridal process, she was a calming energy on an emotionally overwhelming (in a good way!) day. To say she is talented is an understatement. She captured the raw, emotional, and authentic moments of our big day without us even noticing her presence.

We love Robin! On such a busy and overwhelming day, Robin helped us feel organized and calm. I didn’t have to worry about about our schedule or who was where because she was on top of things...all while taking beautiful photos! I wasn’t expecting to be so excited about our photos but when we received them, we were in awe! She took beautiful portraits of us, our families and friends, of our home, and also snapped candids of our wedding guests having a great time. Robin was fun, understanding, professional, and talented! We appreciate all she did for us on our wedding day!

Honesty.

When we work together I just ask for you to trust me. Yes, you’ve seen my photos but how do you really know I will have your best interest at heart? Well, it’s because I make it a point to be HONEST and upfront with you. The more we know about each other, the better your photos and experience will be. If something isn’t working I’ll tell you. I’m known for stopping a photo to smooth a stray hair, relocate to find better light, or tell you a pose isn’t working.

Intent.

I’m an observer by nature. I prefer to sit back and watch and then react. This comes into play when I’m at a wedding. Every move is intentional. I try to become a fly on the wall, blending in with the crowd and becoming one of the guests. I get to know your family and friends, chit chatting, hanging out, and watching as events unfold. I’m not a fan of staging moments. The magic hides in the in-between.

Art.

Art doesn’t happen in a box. Art is messy. Art is unexpected. Art has feeling. And that is why I like to create a free flowing timeline. I like to leave room for you to improvise, enjoy those around you, and have fun. Leave a bit of breathing room. Less is more.

I've been an artist all my life. It's what I do. Back to the trust thing, you've just got to let go and we can create!

PLEASE READ THIS

I'm not going to make you do cheesy poses...

If you are looking for a photographer to take posed portraits smiling at the camera, maybe in front of a bridge, we may not be the best fit.

I want to invest in creating works of art...

If you’re shopping for the cheapest deal you’re not going to value what I want to create for you. That’s totally fine but I want to be more than that.
