Hey! I'm Gen

And this is my story

It was 2004 and I was planning a wedding with my partner in life (and crime, lol) Jeff. We wanted an amazing photographer to capture our crazy, unique personalities. But every photographer we met with was so...

Cookie Cutter!! 

The same cheesy poses... gazing into each others' eyes (yuck!). 

And then we found him, our perfect photographer. I remember how great it felt knowing that our quirkiness was going to be documented, and that even though we're completely awkward on camera, we were going to look ok!

It wasn't until years later that I realized there are other couples like us.

Couples like you...

Who don't want your wedding to look false or staged.
And don't want to spend all day taking photos!

And that's why over the past 7 years, I've built a wedding photography business to serve couples like you.

Your experience & memories

come first

Sometimes that means I climb into uncompromising positions, or get-in close for those happy tears.

It ALWAYS MEANS I go the extra mile to learn what's important to you.

Why? Because there's no room for cookie cutter when it comes to documenting your wedding story!

I love goofing around with my People.

when I'm not behind the camera...

Photography lets me capture life in all it's crazy, wonderful glory for my couples.

And some days I get to capture the crazy wonderful life I'm fortunate to call my own!

This is my tribe and these are the moments I live for - whether it's playing a board game, taking our crazy dog Velma on a hike or finding a new restaurant to try.

Great photography starts with great connection so let's grab a drink & see if we'd be a great fit to work together. I don't accept every wedding I'm approached with... it's truly important that I work with couples who's values align with my approach!

Collections for small weddings start at $3400, and I'll be happy to customize the best coverage for you!
