Here’s what to expect

The Intrepid Visuals Photography Experience

a seamless experience

There are so many more things to consider with your wedding photography than just how much it costs and how many pictures you get! I want to make sure all of your wants and needs are met & and that you leave your wedding with everything you could have wanted. 

Peace of mind & immense value

Your wedding isn’t about the decorations, or the dress, or the traditions, or even your photographs.

It’s about celebrating your marriage with the ones you care about the most, and I want to capture that. 

My Philosophy

Creating real relationships & genuine trust

I have a core belief that people are always more important, and that their stories deserve to be told beautifully. And when I say people, I am directly talking to you.

This means actually taking the time to get to know you and what you care about the most.
This means creating genuine trust so that you don’t have to worry about photographs during your wedding.
This means giving you the peace of mind that your memories are being put into a real physical album that will last for generations.

If you are searching for a photographer to just show up and take some pretty posed pictures, I’m probably not the best fit for you. If you’re searching for the lowest price, I’m definitely not that either.

Does this sound like what you’re looking for?

Creating real relationships and genuine trust means that I photograph a low volume of weddings each year. This allows me to dedicate as much time as possible so that you can have an incredible experience.

Wedding Day Strategy

Authentic moments & stunning imagery

I tend to do things a little differently. I ultimately want to capture & create images that feel like yourself. In 10 years, I want you to look back at your images and make you feel the same love you felt on your wedding day.

I won’t tell you to fake laugh

Your partner will make you laugh plenty

I won’t tell you to smile & look at the camera

Instead you’ll look directly at your partner, the one you’re spending your life with!

I won’t spend 30 minutes on one shot trying to make it “perfect”

The perfectly imperfect details of your day are what give it personality, and I want all of those things to come through in your photos.

I won’t put you in any super awkward poses

I’ll pose you just enough to be comfortable, and let you and your partner’s personality do the rest.

There are two ways that I approach a wedding day,

Authentic Moments

Throughout most of the wedding I will be very candid and photo-journalistic. This promotes the most natural flow of your wedding & allows the most authentic moments to come out.
Next, it fills your images with personality and genuine memories. Throughout your wedding day I focus on all of the little things that might be forgotten, like your mom’s face when she finishes buttoning up your dress, the face you make when he kisses you really hard on your cheek, the way your dad hugs you right before you walk down the aisle, the way your grandma tears up as you walk by her while you’re going to your first look, or the way you say “I love you” as we capture your love during the last moments of sunset. These photographs will only get better as time moves on and will serve as a reminder of who you love & why you love them.

Stunning Imagery

There are small portions of your day where it’s just you, your partner & myself and we get to create some seriously amazing images. And if you’re thinking “we’re super awkward in front of a camera”, then don’t worry! Here’s the thing, every single one of my couples has told me that they are not good in front of a camera, but by the time we’re done with engagement photos they leave feeling super happy and confident in how their photos look. I shoot in such a way that allows you to be yourself and not worry about the little things, but with just the right amount of direction so that you’re never thinking “what do I do with my hands?”. I want this to be as easy as possible for you and I promise that there is no way for you to mess it up!

Here’s the best part,

When you combine the truly authentic moments from your whole wedding with the stunning, magazine-worthy images from our portrait sessions, you get a simply incredible way of telling the story of your wedding. Especially when you combine authentic moments & stunning imagery in your wedding album, you will want to look at your photos every single day, and as you do you can’t help but become overwhelmed with joy as you relive all of the incredible memories from your day.

This is why beyond just giving you all of the digital files, I also make sure that every single couple receives a physical heirloom wedding album that will last for generations.
