Your investment in wedding photography is also an investment in your first family heirloom. After the dress is packed away, the cake is boxed up, and the guests have all driven home, your wedding pictures will be how you can continue to relive the most wonderful and special day of your life.

I don't take the importance of this honor lightly. That's why I ensure that my clients get an amazing experience from beginning to end. From the moment we first meet over coffee and chat wedding details, to when you place your wedding album on the shelf in your newlywed home—you can be sure that you are getting care, attention, and love at every step of the 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!
