Sally works with her husband, Robert, who has an extensive film and design background. Together, they thoughtfully approach each wedding to document it as it unfolds in a light filled, editorial, and honest narrative. Artfully directing to utilize natural light for their film work and edgy composition for their digital work, together has never been better.
Sally and Robert approach each and every wedding with great enthusiasm and extensive preparation. Understanding that it takes an amazing attention to detail, they work closely with the Designer of the wedding alongside each vendor to ensure the memorable day is photographed in a superlative fashion. Considering each element of color, style, location, and even the uniqueness of the couple themselves, Sally and Robert take a directive and active role on the wedding day. Beauty simply is, and is because it is created. This is true for weddings that are filled with not only beautiful but evanescent moments. She takes on the position of an art director ensuring all visuals are cohesive to the story and design. Promoting an organic storytelling of the day, Sally directs natural environments that allow for genuine movements and emotions. All the while, as much as it is an artful production celebrating two people coming together, she is sensible to the intimacy of the day.
Film is a timeless medium and is used on numerous occasions on the day of the wedding as well as digital photography. Both are exclusive and best for specific conditions. A camera is a mere tool for the artist's eye, and being well versed in both worlds, Sally and Robert work according to each given environment, creating a seamless narration of the day.
Sally and Robert have been honored to travel across the world for their Clients. Exploring new locations and unfamiliar venues is one of the keys to keeping their work fresh. Each untapped location is a blank canvas for new perspective and storytelling potential. With this in mind, Sally always scouts new grounds, familiarizing and envisioning the union between the natural and the design.
