HI, I’M PHILIP! Nice to meet you.

Here's a little about me

I enjoy beautiful places, warm sunsets, big open skies, all kinds of music, long road trips, playing guitar, flying airplanes, and taking pictures. I work really hard to do the best job I can. I’m incredibly thankful and blessed I get to do it full-time. I would be honored if you allowed me to capture the most memorable day of your life. Keep scrolling to learn more about what that looks like. 🙂

 What do I do?

I take pictures with my camera and
transform ordinary things into art.

My Approach

When I approach a wedding there are a few things I always try to do.

Bring out the best in people and of your day

This means I capture love, laughter, and joy. I want everyone to look their best and I want to tell the best story I can through the photographs I take. So for me, this means I photograph happy, smiling, fun, and interactive shots of you, your friends, and your family. I document your wedding the way you envisioned it.  

Tell the story of your wedding day

Another goal is for me to tell the story of your day from start to finish.  Your story is your perfect dress, your sparkly shoes, that beautiful wedding location, your friends and family, getting escorted down the aisle, your first kiss as a husband and wife, your first dance together, the maid of honor’s toast, the crazy dancing… It’s your story and I want to capture all of it.

Capture the connection between you two

One of the most important things to me is capturing the love and connection you two have with each other.  I want to pull out the joy that is in your relationship. I mean, isn’t that why you’re here in the first place? 🙂 I’m going to get you two close together and get you laughing, kissing, hugging, and being romantic together. If you’re guy isn’t into that stuff, I’ll pull it out of him and turn him into a sweet guy for ya. Ha!

Create dynamic, soft, and romantic imagery

I love creating both punchy, epic wedding images and also soft, romantic images.  I like to include a good mix of both as I go throughout wedding day.  I love the punchy images because they create an awe factor that makes your friends say “Oh WOW!” And then I’ll create those soft images that make them say “Aww, I love that one.” 

Capture the emotion of the day

Throughout the wedding day, I’m constantly looking around and searching for priceless moments that happen like happy tears of joy, outbursts of laughter, a groomsmen’s pants ripping at the butt seam (haha true story), or a sweet kiss from a loving husband. I absolutely love these moments and I will be there to photograph them when they happen.  

Make sure everyone gets along with us

It’s important to me that you and your guests enjoy our presence.  I’m always friendly, fun, and professional throughout your wedding day.  I’m easygoing and personable and your friends and family will get along with me and my assistant well.  Our past clients have really enjoyed having us there for their wedding day.

Here is a look at the types of photographs I’ll get for you. All of these shots collectively tell the unique story of your day.
