why i do this.

why does an artist paint? why does an author write? why does the sun rise?
we were all created with a purpose.


I tend to gravitate towards shadows, silence, intimacy, and moments that cannot be fabricated. the most cherished images i've created are the ones that were never instructed, but instead that happened naturally. i am always looking to expand my realm of creativity and knowledge - for that reason, no two images will every be the same. I will never promise the same outcome as the session before, for that reason your experience will always be 100%  unique and real. 


At this point, i hope you have felt some value and connection to my work. When it comes to moments on the wedding day, I like to shoot as organically as possible - allowing things to unfold naturally as much as possible. At the same time, I like to artfully compose to create compelling imagery unique to the setting and overall scene. During portraits, I do a mixture of natural movement and give you cues as well as staging you for more artistic, well-curated portraits to showcase. My goal as your photographer is to help preserve the same personalities and heart that exists 5, 10, or even 50 years down the road.

As you may have already noticed in my work, light and shadow play a huge role in my work - as i shoot with a very non-traditional approach and look for interesting lighting and scenes to create a quality image every time. If you want to see more of my work and more of my personality, I update my Instagram more frequently than my website: www.instagram.com/aaarielynn.
