Opia Glow...?

Fun fact, 'opia' is the intensity of eye contact! Listen, I get it; eye contact can be scary and getting your picture taken can feel weirdly vulnerable... BUT! It can also be SUPER FUN and really freaking liberating! Think about all those times you've stared fear in the face and come out STRONGER and BETTER??

 

That's what eye contact means to me - being fiercely, boldly yourself, and refusing anything less than absolute authenticity.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I'm a FASHION, COUPLES, ELOPEMENT photographer :) I *live* for the wild, eclectic couple, or the funky, out-there brand. I'm *all* about capturing the beauty in the REAL! Do you want to find your inner model and/or go on an epic adventure with your person? Lucky for you, those are two of my FAVORITE THINGS.

I don't like the idea that 'moody' and 'playful' HAVE to be mutually exclusive - we're multifaceted human beings and I wanna capture alllllll those amazing complexities. let's get dramatic one minute (vogue babyy), then break into a laughing fit the next!
