Winter Wedding Photo Session
Joel was amazing to work with!!! From the moment we first talked to him, he made us feel super at ease. He was flexible and accommodating under all the unique circumstances we faced. The day we got our pictures done was the first time we met Joel, but the whole experience was like working with a close friend. We didn’t have a lot of time to work with, but still Joel was able to capture so much beauty in that short time, and we had fun doing it! Although I may never believe him when he tells me it’s only 5 minutes further. . . Every minute it took was completely worth it. He definitely has a creative eye and is able to find the most beautiful back drop even in unexpected places! Thank you so much Joel!! Hope to work with you again in the future!!Sent on 13/01/2021

Above all else I’m a people person. True inspiration, for me, comes from my couples and the naturally occurring circumstances and interactions that bubble forth. I like to take these situations and find just the right perspective to invoke emotions making the most captivating art. In my eyes, those are the real photos. The ones that will continue to have meaning to you year after year. I don’t like to forcefully impose my own concepts. Instead, I prefer to observe and draw out the real beauty already present. I will however, comfortably take the lead when appropriate to compose scenes to best emphasize the beauty of the scenario. I have immense artistic vision, but I always prioritize authenticity – I’m allergic to b.s.
