Hi! I'm Ariel! I'm so glad you're here!
I'm a full-time photographer and also a mom to 3 beautiful girls, so when I'm not working my business I'm busy keeping these tiny humans alive! :)
For me, photography is as vital as language itself and equally potent. Taking pictures is not only my calling... It's my attempt to make a difference in this world.
After the wedding day is over and reality sets in, this is where my photos play vital role. It is my mission with all of the photos I take is to force people to pause and linger. Stop, take a breath, reflect. To create a sense of wonder in their hearts. So when life isn't easy and struggle and disappointment occur. You can look at your photos from your wedding day and be confronted with the beauty in these images. You will be forced to pause and reflect. Forced to remember. And as you look at your images, gratefulness and thankfulness will fill your heart. Because that's what beauty does... it restores our souls and helps us remember. Experiencing beauty changes hearts.
Photographing someone's wedding day is not something I take lightly! On a wedding day the bride and groom make promises to love one another until death do us part. So I began to make think about the promises I make to the brides and grooms that choose to hire me on their wedding day. Here are my vows to them!
I promise to document this momentous day to the best of my ability. I fully understand the importance of these images. I know that one day your children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren will see these images and stop, stare, and instantly feel connected with you.
I promise that when you look at these images you will be forced to admit to yourself how you are the most stunning bride and/or most handsome groom. While you are in front of my camera, I promise to make you feel nothing but comfortable. It is my job and my honor to show you just how incredibly beautiful and special you are.
I promise to wear more than one hat on your wedding day. Whether that is calming nerves, fixing your dress, getting tissues to your crying mother, or fixing the straps on a bridesmaid's dress. I will do everything in my power to ensure that this is the best day of your life.
I promise to maintain a fun and optimistic spirit. Wedding days are a roller coaster of emotions. I promise to be there with you through each and every one of them. You will see me more than any of your other vendors on your wedding day (and even the groom)! I promise I wont leave your side through the laughter and the tears!
Most of all, I promise that if you hire me, it will be one of the best decisions you make for your wedding day.
Best of luck with choosing a photographer! If you have any further questions or would like to meet for a consultation, please click here!
