A soulmate is someone who has locks that fit our keys, and keys to fit our locks. When we feel safe enough to open the locks, our truest selves step out and we can be completely and honestly who we are; we can be loved for who we are and not for who we’re pretending to be. Each unveils the best part of the other. No matter what else goes wrong around us, with that one person we’re safe in our own paradise. Our soulmate is someone who shares our deepest longings, our sense of direction. When we’re two balloons, and together our direction is up, chances are we’ve found the right person. Our soulmate is the one who makes life come to life.

First and foremost, communication is key. The more you speak about your wedding details and expectations, the better prepared I will be on making sure that I capture ALL that you desire to have for your memories.
We will start off by me asking you for your email. I then provide you with a questionnaire so that I am able to better understand in writing about your details. After which, we will set up a day/time to video chat or meet up to discuss aspects of the questionnaire in greater detail.
Getting booked for your wedding date is simply just you saying "yes, I want you to be my photographer", and that's it.
To get booked and to set your date all for you, there is a non-refundable deposit of 25% to which will be used to put towards your entire collection fee. Feeling hesitant, don't worry, refunds are done on a case by case basis. Trust me, all I want is for you to have all that you want for your dream wedding.
Time for you to reveal all the juicy stuff! As part of your ongoing consultation, I will help you with planning in regards to your photography. This means that we will be in close contact for the preparations, location site, items to gather for detail shots, coordination with the event planner, and any small intricate details that need to be addressed before the big day.
It's here...the day is finally here where you are marrying the love of your dreams. Take ease in the fact that I am working so hard to make your day special and memorable with love and laughter.
Just relax, let others around you go crazy and work things out. You just hang on to your wine or champagne glass and let us work out magic.
When the gallery has been all set up, I will email you a link that allows you to view, purchase and download your images. If you have a collection that offers an item such as an heirloom box/USB, or an album, I will have you select the images you most want to have printed. This can take up to 6 weeks. The album will be carefully created to showcase your special wedding. I will be in contact with you up to the day of the delivery.
We’re all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness – and call it love – true love -Robert Fulghum
Weddings are a day of celebration of two people coming together to unite as one. Mirroring each other in life, and and creating journey that will last a lifetime.
This is where the fun begins! The engagement session is all about those looks, and smiles, and the newlywed faze. So precious in love and happiness. Engagement sessions provides you with those lovely couples shots to show of your ring, and your partner, and show others your true selves in save the date cards and/or invitations.
These are complimentary, but you don't have to make it just about you. You can make it a family engagement for families who are melding two into one. However you use this, it is a great way to announce to the world that YOU ARE GETTING MARRIED!
Seems to me like this is something new. Which is perfectly fine. You get to share that intimate first look at each other in your wedding attire. A very special moment that most brides want to have for themselves.
My dad enlisted into the Marines when I was just a year or two. Retired when I turned 28. I married Navy (don't ask) and we have three boys and a crazy fur baby. We live in MD and found it to be a nice and calming place to raise our children.
Oh yeah they are. They try to be all kinds of tough but when they see their love walking down the isle...cue the water works. My husband was a mess when I was walking down...A few grooms from previous weddings too. It's okay guys! Just let it out
The extra session in your collection is mainly set aside for your engagement sessions. However, it can be used for bridal, boudoir, family, or can be gifted...or if you wish to remove it, that can be done as well.
Of course! My collections are starting off points. If you require something else, or your budget is strict, please use the A La Carte section to gather your items you wish for your collection.
Yes I do. The deposit is at least 25% of your total cost. This fee is also non-refundable. If there are any extenuating circumstances, please let me know and we can talk about how to move forward.
If you reside within a 65 mile radius from my location, I do not charge a travel fee. The fee to travel is $0.56 per mile included in your final pricing.
I know it can be a scary thing. But I promise you, that once you get booked and pay that deposit, it is one less thing that you have to worry about. Take care in knowing that I am here for you in any way that you need me.
