1. How are you a “game-changer” in the wedding industry?

I am an openly feminist wedding photographer, which from what I can tell is pretty rare. I think the wedding industry needs to move away from weddings being all about spending money or emulating pinterest and instead bring the focus back onto love and people in love. My goal is to work with couples who want to throw an amazing party to celebrate their relationship, but who care more about having a fabulous marriage than having a perfect wedding day.   

2. What inspires you to “do weddings differently”?

Definitely my politics and feminist activist background. Realizing that patriarchy is real and hurts everyone is similar to realizing that a lot of what our society tells us about weddings (they should be giant, the best day of your life, etc) is actually harmful and we should push back against it.

3. What is one of your favorite creative, offbeat projects you’ve worked on?

Last year my friend Emaleigh and I did a photography project in which we re-imagined the high arcana of the traditional tarot deck. The photos ended up in a show at Gallery 5 last October and was one of the most rewarding (and exhausting) projects I've completed. That and Catalyst, of course!

 4. What are three ingredients for a perfect day at your company?

At least one open window with a breeze, an organized To Do list, and 8tracks.com or vinyl if I'm feeling dad-rock-ish (don't judge).

5. If you were in charge, what would the next big wedding trend be?

Either s'mores and bonfires or letting the wedding party wear whatever the hell they want!

6. What are you most looking forward to at {un}convention?

Meeting so many new people and sharing ideas for how to say sane in a very, very crazy industry!
