KNOW IT ALLS

Let's go out past the party lights.

If you are reading this, I suspect that you are awesome. You, in one word = awesome. Your wedding in one word = awesome. Or awesome-fest if you happen to be playing fast and loose with the hyphens. Yep, that's a whole lot of awesome. Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious is also a you appropriate word but obviously much harder to toss around with great frequency.

What sets your wedding day apart? Beneath the optional confetti canon, the incredible people in your life are the heartbeat of your party. Basically, you love the shit out of some pretty wonderful folks and you're going to have a reallllly good time celebrating together. Also included: dress hems that have picked an inadvertent forest floor bouquet to commemorate the day, dipped in rivers or caught the advancing tide while you dance backwards collapsing with laughter into the arms of your number one. Grins that just don't quit. A foray into semi-professional cuddling. 

From the other half that makes you a better half to the arms that won't let go until you're thisclose to peeing your pants with laughter. Your community. Your family. Friends. Love. Impromptu kitchen dance parties. Heavy on the joy and zero on the cookie cutter prom poses. I do solemnly swear, however, to tell you if your bangs look weird. And if you feel like your hands are awkward bananas? Not to worry, I've got you covered. When you let go of impossible/ridiculous/irrelevant standards, magic happens. That's where you'll find me.

Bad jokes. Beautiful pictures.

If I were in a beauty pageant, laughing until I cry would be my go to talent. Just ask pretty much anyone I've spent more than 15 minutes with. I lugged my Mom's camera to school when I was 13 and ended up with a yearbook of couples. It took me eons longer to figure out that I will balance precariously on any object to celebrate commitment. L-O-V-E all caps, kind of love. Your partner in crime, the hand that always meets yours in the dark, your very best friend by your side, whatever the weather - especially if it's raining or you might get arrested. Always willing to eat ice cream for dinner. And let's not forget laughter. This is what I celebrate.

CELEBRATING INAPPROPRIATE LAUGHTER SINCE FOREVER.

I learned to process film by hand in high school and have a BFA in photography from the Alberta College of Art and Design. I completed a year of an MFA program in photography at Parsons NYC and quickly realized that I need wide open spaces in my life. Influenced without a doubt by my Saskatchewan prairie roots and a continued fondness towards the words “tuque” (that's tewk) and “bunny hug.” If you’re really nice, I might even show you my precision figure skating photos.

HUMBOLDT ROMANTIC

I am a recent Humboldt County transplant and could not be more over the moon about our new home base. I reside in Arcata with my safe and sound of 8 years, Aaron. We are currently haphazardly mapping the previously uncharted waters of parenthood with the 2017 addition of our baby son. You can frequently find us watching supremely bad movies or trying to locate our two ornery dogs in the jungle that has become our back yard.
