I love film AKA analog photography. I started out with film photography in 2006 when I took darkroom classes while I was going to school. In 2011, I got married and realized I’d be great at photographing weddings. In 2016 I did my first wedding video AKA wedding film.
I’ve photographed and filmed many weddings, and for some time I used digital photography. Some people can’t tell the difference between digital photography versus film photography, but I can. I prefer to use film and all of the slideshows below are film photographs, but if you insist on digital photography… I’m up for it. I love the softness, color gamut, highlight and shadow retention I get from film photographs, as well as the soul. If you cannot tell the difference or are not as picky as me, digital photography does have a quicker turnaround and is much lighter equipment for me to carry.
You may not love all of the photographs below in the slideshows, I have used many different film stocks. If there is a certain look you are going for specifically please let me know when you contact me. I can definitely make it happen. Same goes for video.
When I make films I frame similarly to how I photograph things and also go about a photojournalistic style. My aim is to capture the aesthetic and emotion of your day.
My job is simple: Capture the spirit of the wedding. If I try to control events, I change the truth of the event. I try to behave like a welcomed guest. – John Dolan

I’m currently located most of the time in North Carolina this year. I try to keep WeddingWire updated with my current location, but we travel so often. Most of the time we are on the road. I travel in my conversion van, which is basically a class B RV. It’s a thing now if you want to look up #VanLife or #VanLifeDiaries on Instagram. It’s complete with my office, bed, bath, TV & Wifi. What more could a girl need!? It helps save you a lot with travel costs and is very handy not having to move three dogs and all my gear in and out of hotels. 🚐 I’m originally from Oklahoma and for family and work, we travel often to New England, Massachusetts, Florida and Colorado. So, that’s me frequenting the entire East Coast and the Southern United States, as well as the Southwest and the Rocky Mountains. My favorite places anyway. Contact me no matter where your wedding because I love any excuse to photograph new places.
