My sole purpose is for you to sense the emotion that you felt, remember what made you cry, what one of you said to get that laugh and captured authentically so you feel it forever. Through my photography, I want to add value to your experience, to the bonds you share and to your new beginning.

Ultimately I want to be the photographer that impacts your marriage and life, not just the one that takes pretty pictures. You deserve more than beautiful photos; you deserve a photographer who can anticipate your questions and concerns and can help guide you along the way. Meaning I will show up for you in a big way.

Frequently Asked Questions

About the experience

How many hours of coverage will I get?

I have done anywhere from 2-12, depending on your needs! Make sure to contact me for a nicely packaged plan.

What kind of gear do you use?

I shoot with 2 full frame camera bodies, 3 flash bodies, 1 Canon 100mm Macro lens, 1 Canon 85mm lens, and 1 Canon 35mm lens. I also provide all of the necessary stying accents and creativity to ensure your day is captured perfectly from the getting ready details to that final dance!

How soon after our shoot will we see the photos?

Four to eight weeks is a good rule of thumb for weddings. For portrait sessions, I am able to deliver the photos usually in the same week! 

I want to book you! What's the next step?

First of all, YAY! I am SO excited. Please inquire through my contact form. Once your wedding date is secured, you can sign your proposal, put down your retainer, and… woohoo! I’m yours!  

Will we meet in person before our session?

I believe that genuine interactions are super important to your wedding day success! I would love to chat over coffee, Facetime, or a cocktail to get to know you better. I also include a complimentary engagement session to every wedding day package so that we can get to know each other better through shooting!
