A creative scrapbook

EDITORIAL PORTFOLIO

Trying a new technique, a new medium or working with vendors who push me to capture life in a different way — each project brings a new set of challenges that I celebrate. Not only does my editorial work improve my wedding work, it inspires my clients to seek original images.

I collaborate with vendors from around the Southeast so we can exercise our technical muscles and achieve imaginative concepts.

There's nothing more thrilling than stepping out of my comfort zone.

Concept:

A modern take on the traditional bridal portrait. Three distinct looks to represent three distinct women.

Notes:

I used direct sunlight to create stunning, contrasted portraits. I usually shy away from harsh light on wedding days so it was fun to pose the models in a way that would highlight their makeup and bone structure.
