I love weddings and love stories, but my passion for my job is more than that. I get the opportunity to use my camera and my creativity to capture your wedding-- not only what it looked like, but what it felt like. Photographing a wedding extends far beyond the wedding day. My goal is to deliver photos that will be cherished for years to come.

I specialize in artistic documentary-style wedding photography and capture the things that can often get overlooked-- a stolen glance, a wiped tear, a proud look from a father. My images capture emotions and feelings that tell the story of your day artistically and authentically.

I'd love to be considered as you search for your photographer.

-MY APPROACH-

My philosophy for why I do what I do is simple: I treat people the way I would want to be treatedThat's how I do business.

To me, you are not just another client; I genuinely want to get to know you, hear your stories, and learn about what you want your wedding to be like because I truly care.

Photography Anthology is for couples that care about the meaning of their marriage more than the aesthetics of their wedding. They are passionate about life and each other. When it comes to wedding photography, I work with couples that value creativity and artistry as well as authenticity and honesty. 

Photography Anthology is for couples that value quality over quantity and want their wedding to reflect their true personalities.

Welcoming in a beautiful marriage and celebrating with friends and family is of utmost importance to my clients on their wedding day.

My favorite couples to work with have an artsy side, a great sense of humor, and a little bit of quirk.

If this sounds like you, I think we'd be a great fit. Let's chat


-why photography anthology?-

What sets me apart from other photographers is my eye for the moments that are often overlooked. It's obvious that you want good photos of you and your partner and photos of the goings on of the day; any wedding photographer can provide that, but what I bring to the table is an eye for the nuances of the day and the subtle emotions. Not only do I capture the main events, but all the things behind the scenes. Simply put, I capture the feeling of your wedding day and all the little details that make up the big picture.


-Faq-

How many images come in a gallery?
It varies from wedding to wedding, but I typically deliver 500-800 final images.

How do I know how many of hours of coverage I need?
This is a great question! Check out this guide I created for planning a wedding day timeline that will help you get a better idea of how many hours of coverage you need.

Do I need two photographers?
I feel confident and comfortable photographing weddings by myself, in fact, every image in my portfolio has been shot by me, not a second shooter. I photograph 80% of my weddings alone. However, if you are having a particularly large wedding or if your wedding takes place across venues that are driving distance apart, I recommend adding on a second shooter.

What gear do you use?
I keep my setup very simple because I want to focus on you on the wedding day, not fooling around with my gear. I shoot with two Canon 6D's and a Canon 135mm 2.0 and Canon 35mm 1.4. I know my gear inside and out!

Are you insured?
Yes, I have up to $2,000,000 in coverage.

What if I want to add to my package later?
No problem! Just let me know and I will add it to your package.

Do you travel for weddings?
Yes! Just let me know where you are getting married and I will prepare a quote for travel expenses. I do not charge travel fees for weddings in Nashville.

Should we do a first look?
It is 100% up to you! One advantage of doing a first look is that we can then complete all family/group photos before the ceremony, but if you don't want to see your partner before the wedding, then don't do a first look-- go with your gut!

What is a first look anyways?
A first look is when the couple sees each other for the first time on their wedding day in their wedding attire-- it is such a fun and special moment! I typically take the couple somewhere more secluded so that it is just the three of us and then they open their eyes/turn around for the big reveal. It may sound a little cheesy, but it really is such a special moment when you see your partner for the first time, just the two of you, and let the reality sink in together.
