The Northern Glow Wedding, Elopement & Portrait Experience

I have developed a natural photography style that captures you at your best in a candid and unposed way. Every Northern Glow wedding and session includes the following key ingredients to make your experience efficient and enjoyable: 

 

1. Making You Comfortable - Some of us struggle in front of the camera – the stress levels rise with every click of the shutter and twist of the lens. Not with Northern Glow!

 

Through years of experience capturing hundreds of weddings and sessions I have learned to work with all temperaments, preferences, and comfort levels. Whether you tend to shine in the limelight or shy away from it, I guarantee a pleasant and successful experience.

I always begin by building a relationship with my clients. I want to know what makes you tick! My goal is to capture your personality in every shot. So, I will work quickly to discover your unique traits in order to get the most out of our time together and put the best into your final album. Organic connection is the foundation of the Northern Glow experience.

2. During Your Big Day - You have put so much effort into every detail of your big day. The Northern Glow process will highlight all the nuances and special touches that you worked so hard to curate.

 

I seek to give a voice to all those little details; I want to help you tell your story with class and artistry. I’ll arrive prepared for every eventuality, ready to help you navigate the complexities of your day. A successful album is about capturing the images that portray the unique narrative of your day. I won’t waste your time focusing on sheer volume. Rather, you’ll get every must-have shot, beautifully rendered, along with the perfect amount of additional material to tell your story fully.

 

3. The Final Product - Northern Glow emphasizes the natural beauty of candid photography. Moreover, I edit your pictures to provide a truly timeless finish that will mature well and give you joy for decades.

Every album is designed to emphasize an unposed, documentary style. This helps to take you back to the heart of every cherished memory even if you were moving too fast to savor the moment in real time. This focus on organic storytelling is what sets Northern Glow apart.

I know that you’ll want to see and share your album as quickly as possible. That’s why I offer a competitive turnaround guarantee of sixty days for weddings and thirty days for other sessions.

I can’t wait to connect with you and make your best moments last forever.
