a few days before clarisse + steph got married, clarisse had asked me if i was available to photograph their pre-wedding festivities happening at her and steph’s place. i happened to be available and of course said yes! going into this, i wanted to photograph this event in a way that felt more personal and up-close, as opposed to photographing it as a “professional” and getting a bunch of really pretty & dreamy photos. i wanted to make photographs that were more off the cuff and snap-shotty with a bit of grit and imperfection. i had such an amazing time not only getting to document the event, but also getting to know clarisse + steph’s friends & family. enjoy!
