Wedding days are not like any other day in your life. It is a celebration of you and  your person FINALLY making it to the alter. I am sure that mom and grandma are TOTALLY excited to see this day come. Taking your wedding day to heart, we go over ALL THE DETAILS. May seem like an extra planner/coordinator, but TRUST ME when I say that my involvement of timelines and the flow of the day HELPS tremendously to make sure that we have the time and light needed to make this wedding day flow without an issue! 

crafting an unforgettable experience

what to expect

You. I mean, that's why I'm here, that's why your here. To find someone that gets you and understands what you are looking for. To capture the best moments of your life and documenting them in  one still moment of time. When you finally set your eyes on one another, and you can see and feel the emotion rise inside of you, and bursts out in the form of tears of saying "OMG" while reaching out for each other and embracing with a kiss. Those are the moments I live for. Those are the moments I love. Those are the moments that NEED to be captured.

Nothing eve goes unnoticed while I am around. I can't wait to start working with you! Reach out to get this party started!! Woop woop!

I am so glad that Debbie was there. She was a pure constant of stability throughout the entire day. She truly marched through with every hiccup we had and didn't complain once. She was right there by my side keeping calm and being someone that kept  my mind off things. I have raved about her to all of my friends and cannot wait to work with her for future family photos.

Send me an email. We will schedule a chat to discuss everything that you have planned so far.

The Process

The Proposal

Not to marry me sheesh. But an online summary of what we talked about, and the collection that you would like to have, the contract and invoice.

It's Time

We will discuss in further detail some aspects of your wedding day. Elopeemnts are a little more invovled so the planning needs to be done fairly soon to make sure all areas are covered. Weddings, I will create a photography timeline and mock photo list for you close to the date. We will finalize everything to make sure we ar eboth on the same page for your vision. Then...all that's left to get MARRIED.

If you are traditional, that's okay! It's who you are that we are focusing on. Church weddings are not my thing, so an alternative to that are outdoor venues. Natural light is always best anyways, and the amazing view during your ceremony is one for the books! Let's take the traditional into the wild!

Starting at $2500

COVID, COVID COVID! DAMN COVID!!!! Ruined a lot for so many people. Not that we could have done anything about but, it interfered so much with so many people and our lives were turned upside down. Many couples put their wedding on hold while other did a face mask courthouse or backyard wedding. So what can you do about it?

Sorry, that's a big no for me. I edit truthfully and honestly. No contorting, slimming, removing or tweaking anything body wise. Blemishes, sure, small scars or scratches that shouldn't be there, sure. Nothing more.

Can you photo shop us?

To make things as easy as possible for you, all travel fees for weddings and elopements are included in the prices you see! I take care of booking all of my own flights, rental cars, accommodations, etc. so you don’t have to worry about me sending a million different invoices or having any unexpected expenses. For sessions, travel is included up to 40 miles from my location - whether that’s somewhere local when I’m home or at one of the destinations on my travel list. Anything beyond 40 miles is charged at $0.625 per mile (both ways).


What are your travel fees?

Firstly, I totally get a budget. I work on a budget consistently with my family. When it comes to photography I have to take into consideration that I am leaving my family for a day or more, hours spent editing, travel time, communication, planning, and lots of other little things. So my pricing is fair to what my duties as a photographer are. I will do my best to accommodate your budget when providing you a quote

I'm on a budget, but I love your style, can you work with smaller budgets?

Yes. Although I do prefer smaller more intimate weddings, I do occasionally take on larger weddings dependent on location and date to properly have time to edit images and deliver items.

Are you comfortable with larger weddings?

Yes, all of my images are hand edited. I have a timeless, elegant vintage vibe in my photos so it will be warm with grain. I do basic retouching meaning blemishes to the face, or other light removal of items or objects. 

Do you edit  your own images?

FAQ's

That’s not a problem at all! I always do TONS of research ahead of time and I will arrive early to scout and explore so I can get to know the location, find the best spots for your ceremony or portraits, and help guide you on the day of. I’m also super inspired when photographing a new location for the first time so I can guarantee you’ll get my most creative self capturing your day! More than likely I will pay for an AirBnb in the area to fully take in the location and really get to know the area.



What if you have never shot at our venue?

It can be a scary thing finding people who you can trust to help you on the most important day of your life. Why don't we chat for a bit so I can calm down any nerves, answer questions, and help bring your story to life through pictures.

There's so much to do. Let's not waste any time.
