BEHIND THE LENS
her style: Documentary, Magical, True to color
Hannah's 10 year of shooting weddings has lead her all over the world capturing love and what it means to be human. In the process her style has evolved to focus on a documentary style of shooting while always chasing the sunshine and landscapes where ever she goes.
She studied Fine Art Film Photography at Indian Wesleyan University falling in love with fine art and documentary photo. She started shooting at age 12 with a Polaroid after being captured by Nat Geo Magazines in her grandparents basement.
She is obsessed with all things to do with the ocean, working with her hands, reading, baking, knitting, and swimming.
These images are her grandparents on their wedding day in 1960. When we know where we come from we have a better idea of where we are going and who we are. She documents to tell these kinds of stories. The ones your grandchildren will look back on in 60 years from now and hold.
Authenticity is why she photographs.
To document history for the next generation.
If she is not home in Flagstaff you will find Hannah under the ocean somewhere in the world. Not at the beach, no she loves to be in the deepest of blue waters. It's where she knows God.
Louie, Ziva, & Ian make up her sweet little family. Hannah and Ian have been dating for 2 years and falling in love more everyday.
Hannah has been working on organic vegtable farms all over the world from Italy, Hawaii, Ohio. This last summer of 2022 her and Ian have a large garden of their own! Growing a pumpkin patch, strawberries, peppers, kale, and everything in between. It's her favorite place to be in Flagstaff.
We donate a portion of each wedding collection booked to an organization in Bangladesh, called Speak Up For the Poor, which helps to provide education to girls in the highest rate of child marriage in the world.
We believe if you give a girl education she will change the world.

After shooting weddings for 10 years I've learned a thing or two about wedding days. They are the joining of two families, a day of celebration, the start of a family legacy. It's actually not about the photos, it's about your experience from start to finish. Photographs are the icing on top.
learn about how I do things differently
Hannah's favorite new things to document is mama's during this massive change in their life. The female body is so ridiculously beautiful and amazing. If you trust her she will document what it feels like to be in our body during this shift.
She documents freely, creatively, and uniquely depending on the woman.

These are what inspires her. She reads daily, listens to podcasts, and watches documentaries to grow and learn.
