You're engaged!

Oh hey there! A little birdie mentioned something about you being engaged?! Congratulations! Now you're looking for someone to capture your day. Well let me take some of the stress off your shoulders because this is my JAM!

What do you see when you picture your wedding day?

Do you see your friends and family choking back tears of joy for you? The love in your future spouse's eyes as you make your way down the aisle? The cheers and celebrations as you share your first wedded kiss and your first dance? From those bigger moments and all of the precious moments in between, you can bet that I'll be there, snapping away, fetching you a water, and serving you in any way that I can - far beyond the wedding photography. Because my clients are so much more than just "clients" to me. They're my BFFs for the day and I'll do anything to make sure you have the best day ever.

How Soon Do We Get To See Our Photos?

frequently asked questions

Waiting forever for your photos is not what you want, I got you! I’m just as excited to see your photos after your wedding day as you are! sneak peeks are shared within 48 hours, a blog post with 75+ images is shared by the tuesday following your wedding (for Saturday weddings), and you'll have all edited photos back to you within 3-6 weeks of the wedding. You will receive you photos on an online gallery where you can download, share with family and friends, and order prints right from the gallery and they’ll be at your door in less than a week.

What Makes You Different From Other Photographers?

In short: personal connection and serving you every step of the way

I don't like to be someone that just shows up to capture your day. I like to know your story, know the two of you, and be able to capture your day from an insider's perspective.

I also believe in serving you on more than just your wedding day. As soon as you book your wedding, you'll be sent my almost 100-page Bridal Guide, giving you tips on planning your engagement session, picking photogenic details for your day, and guiding you in the planning/timeline process for your wedding.

I do everything I can to go above and beyond for every single one of my clients, not just in photos, but in my overall service to you on your wedding day. And that, in my opinion, is what sets me apart from many other photographers.

Do We Get ALL The Photos?

You get all the photos we take with the exception of blinks, duplicates, and test photos. I don’t cap the number of images you receive, but you can expect around 100 images per hour of coverage. They will be all edited and consistent with what you see on the website and blog.

Do You Help With Engagement Session Outfit Tips?

Yes, I do! you will receive a guide full of outfit tips and suggestions.

How Do We Know How Many Hours We'll Need?

Great question! I can help you figure that out on our consultation call/meeting. there are a few things that factor into this like ceremony start time, first looks, guest size, traveling between venues, and other things that may be important to you.

Do You Have A Second Shooter Join You?

Most of my wedding packages include a second shooter. This ensures that you will have different angles and options when you get your final gallery! Whether it’s my husband (who is freaking epic behind the camera), or a photographer picked from a small pool of trusted second shooters that I have worked with before, you’ll never have to worry about your photography needs being met.

How Do We Book?

The first step is to fill out the contact form at the bottom of this page. After I confirm I have your date available, we'll schedule a meetup where I'll get to know you and your fiancé better, figure out your goals for your big day, talk you through my entire wedding photography process: from your bridal guide through your gallery delivery, and finally help you decide the perfect package for your specific needs. When you decide you’d like to move forward— then comes the fun part! We’ll get a contract signed, and celebrate! 

Do we Pay A retainer?

You’ll put down a $600 non-refundable retainer when booking which will hold your spot on my calendar. even if you decide to add hours or products to your package, you’ll be able to have the flexibility to choose that after securing your wedding date.

We're Awkward For Photos. Can You Help?

i'd say about 75% of my couples warn me that they're awkward prior to getting in front of my camera. when you look at my portfolio, do you see any awkward photos? nope! i promise i'll guide you as much or as little as you need to get you feeling comfortable while i click away. this is also a big reason that i include An engagement session in all of my packages. You’ll get to know me and experience how I shoot and handle posing and lighting - making your wedding day photos stress-free and easy.

Is There Any Way We Can Save A Little On Our Wedding?

Yes, consider a weekday, wedding in the winter, or less than 3 months out. Contact me and i'll can see what we can do.

I also offer a discount to military, law enforcement, and first responders. thank you for your service!
