Imagine the feeling of home. The comfort, ease, and joy of a space that is yours, every room filled with the love of you and your partner's, and an inner knowing that you can show up fully, as yourself, unapologetically. This is the experience I offer you, so that your love can be expressed openly and without worry, knowing you're embraced simply as you are.
I'm Cass, your friendly neighborhood queer, femme, photographer on a mission to provide a safe, welcoming space for all love. I understand both the wonderful, joy-filled moments of planning, and those that challenge you simply because of who you love. And so, you are more than accepted here, you are celebrated.
As a queer woman who married in 2012, I understand what it's like to be judged for who I love. I know the anxiety that rises when you have to out yourself to every vendor, unsure of the response you'll receive. I empathize with the uncertainties of planning a queer and/or nontraditional wedding in a patriarchal, heteronormative wedding industry.
But I also know how it feels to be seen, and to experience change of hearts. I've witnessed weddings bring communities together, chosen families pouring out their souls over toasts, and both expected and unexpected hugs of a celebratory embrace. I've documented uncontrollable laughter, playful moments, and endless unifying dance floors. And so, no matter what your day may hold, I'll be cheering for you, supporting you, and listening with an open ear whenever needed, all while creating beautiful photographs for you to cherish.
A safe space for all, especially those within the LGBTQ+ community, to share, express, and celebrate love, openly and honestly.
I believe that weddings are about human connection — with your partner, and adoring guests. And while the beautiful little details that went into your day are special, you and your loved ones remain my focus. The shared laughter, warm glances, hugs of joy, candid moments you didn't see, and tears that are wiped away will be the moments to fill your heart. They'll be the photographs in your wedding album evoking emotion, giving you goosebumps, reminding you of how deeply you're loved. After all, the memories we carry with us are often those in connection with whom we love.
