A word from the photographer…
For me, photography is about creating fine art images from precious memories. For as long as I can remember, I have always had an eye for it. You know, I believe my lifelong affair with art began when I was in an art class in kindergarten. I was asked to draw a tulip from a still life display. In creating my rendition of this image, I was able to portray this tulip in such a way that it appeared to take on human traits! The art teacher was so impressed that she submitted it to a countywide art contest for 5th graders. To my surprise, I won this countywide contest. In any artistic piece I produce, my goal is to capture the whole spectrum of human emotions and relay these feelings to those who view my work. I see an image of beauty and then use the photography tools at my disposal to bring that beauty to the forefront. A wedding or special event is one of the most important times in a couple’s life together and, to me, there is nothing more beautiful than those once in a lifetime images captured during those cherished moments.
I have experience in various styles of photography as well as printing in traditional and nontraditional mediums.
A word from the event planner…
I have a Ph.D. in English and have a passion for digging up vintage relics from the past and doing research on various eras in history. I also have a master's degree in Public Administration, which has given me a strong background in planning. I have organized large- scale events for up to 400 guests, with a budget in excess of $30,000. Some of my favorite eras include 19th century Regency England (as seen in Jane Austen novels), the Jazz Age of the 1920's (imagine Josephine Baker in Paris), and the 1960's (recall Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's). I would love to be of assistance as you capture the essence of one of your favorite time periods.
Our style is a vintage inspired blend of fine art and photojournalism. We can infuse some of your shots with a contemporary vibe, giving you the best blend of old and new. So the sky is the limit if you want to step back in time to one of your favorite eras in history or reenact a fond memory. We like to capture the film noir style of the 1940's and add a modern twist. So become 19th century Victorian or Southern ladies, 1920's flappers, 1930's film goddesses, 1940's Tuskegee Airmen, or relive the first moment when you fell in love. We will capture timeless images to last a lifetime.
