Everence photography, THE PHOTOGRAPHER

GET TO KNOW ME

It is my passion as an artist and storyteller to create imagery that is joyful, romantic, authentic and ultimately beautiful. I want to capture each and every client as they are, showcasing their love story. After shooting 100’s of weddings and serving this industry for over a decade, I’ve learned more than anything how a day needs to be ran. Taking the days timeline into my own hands, has been one of the biggest benefits to my clients. Not only will you know where you need to be, when you need to be, I’ll be there helping to guide you. I want my clients to be able to fully intrust in me. Also trusting in my directional posing, management of your bridal party, and making sure your day is a flawless as possible. 

I am inspired by the magic of love and wonder of this world, finding beauty in all the moments, from big too small. Finding joy and celebration in watching the story unfold and capturing it all, giving my clients a tangible heirloom of their most cherished memories. 
Please explore my work and send me a note with any questions.
