I believe representation matters, even in my little corner of social media/our website. I'm working to show more BIPOC and LGBTQ+ couples throughout all aspects of our online presence (we know we’re not there yet). I want couples to feel seen and safe with us at every step of the process.
I will only submit weddings and styled shoots to publications that share the same value for representation.
When I refer you to other vendors (and other photographers when I'm not available), I am committed to only referring to those who will serve all couples wholeheartedly.
I am stronger when I have a diverse array of educators (and let’s face it, life is just more fun when you’re hearing from a variety of voices). I'm committed to only attending conferences and workshops that have diversity in their speakers and panels.
It starts with our family life. We’ve committed to teaching our children about their own ethnic identities and culture, how to celebrate differences, and how to challenge hate in the world.
I know I will make mistakes along the way. I will apologize, ask for forgiveness, educate myself, and do better.
“If you have come here to help me you are wasting your time,
but if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine,
then let us work together.”
I am committed to continually learning how to better serve you. Here are some of the resources that I have learned from and recommend (acknowledging that some of you live this reality every day and don’t have a choice to “opt-in” to education). I'll update this list as I learn more.
