You’re scrolling through Instagram and dreaming of having those gorgeous, glowy, romantic photos for your wedding day, but some part of you feels a little nervous. What if we’re awkward? What if my main squeeze is SO not into getting their picture taken? What do we do with our hands?
I 100% understand and I promise you, I’ll make the process so relaxed and fun for you both! Yes, even the guys (it’s kinda my specialty). My number one priority is to ensure you have a blast with me and fall a little more in love with each other (and me – oh heyyy) in the process.
After your engagement session, I’ll send you your photos in 1-2 weeks. For your wedding, I’ll send you a preview gallery 1-2 days after your wedding and the full gallery of photos 3-4 weeks after your big day!
I want your photos to feel very romantic and candid, but let’s face it – 99% of the time, if I pointed a big camera at you and said “Guys, just look in love and comfortable,” most people would freeze. I promise I won’t leave you hanging! We’ll take the traditional posed photos that your family will want and I’ll help guide you into other prompt/scenarios to bring out the real connection between the two of you.
Each of my couples will receive a comprehensive engagement session style guide upon booking, plus my sage advice and wisdom. 😎
I currently offer wedding, engagement, maternity, anniversary, and senior photography. At this time, I’m not taking any family or newborn sessions to be able to focus more on my big love – weddings.
For engagement sessions, at least 50, but typically more. For weddings, it depends on how long your day goes and how many events are happening, but I average between 700-1000. You’ll receive each image in color with a few specially chosen black and whites.
Of course! You’ll receive a print release form from me so you and your families can print them wherever you’d like! If you want to order a few higher end long-lasting prints or wall art, you also have the option to order directly from your gallery.
Yes and yes! I can provide proof of insurance for your venue or other vendors if needed. I also bring backup cameras, lenses, and flashes to every wedding.
I am a Nikon digital photographer with an editing style that’s inspired by the timelessness and beauty of film.
I’m a huge homebody so my ideal weddings are under an hour drive. But I’m totally willing to travel up to three hours by car. Reach out to me for details! I’m not currently taking any destination weddings because airplanes and I aren’t friends. I’ll tolerate flying for the occasional vacation, but even then I’m a mess. 😂
What’s included in that price?
Your engagement session, 10 hours of coverage by me, 8 hours with a second shooter, online high resolution galleries of your engagement and wedding images, full printing rights, and an extra friend on your wedding day
Collections with albums for you and your parents are available!
Engagement, Anniversary, Maternity, or Just Because
You take a look through my website and social media and love what you see so you send me a message through my contact form. The more thorough and detailed - the better! I love to hear all about the two of you and what your vision is for your big day. It’s like receiving a baby romance novel in my inbox. Never saying no to that.
If your date is free, we’ll chat some more either in person at my home office, on video chat, or through email. Everyone has different schedules, so whatever works for you is good for me too! After booking I’ll give you access to all of my sage wisdom and advice on how to make your wedding day and photos as amazing and easy as possible.
We’ll then schedule your engagement sesh for anytime prior to your wedding day! When you book, you’ll receive my engagement style guide that’ll help you choose your outfits because that’s honestly the only hard part. And don’t worry, I’ll guide you through everything and guarantee you’ll have an awesome time! At the end of every engagement session I always hear “Wow, I was not expecting to have that much fun!” Especially from the guys. When I hear that from them, I become the human embodiment of the sunglasses emoji.
Around two months prior to your wedding, you’ll receive a pre-wedding checklist from me to fill out before I create your custom photo timeline. This covers all of the information I’ll need to know before your big day such as family formal lists, your awesome vendors, etc. Once that’s complete we’ll hop on a quick 30 minute phone call to go over your timeline and all the fun little details!
And then it’s time for fun, frivolity, and a whole lotta love! I’m a big believer in telling your full wedding story so my collections cover up to 10 hours. I love to have time to create beautiful vignettes of your details while you’re in hair and makeup, fun shots of you and your bridal party getting ready and hanging out, lots of gorgeous dreamy portaits, magazine-esque photos of your incredible reception details, and tons of dance floor shots! But at the same time, I’m not the type of photographer that takes forever with your portraits. I believe that having a great time at your wedding is #1 and pride myself on efficiency and systems that allow you to actually enjoy your day and not feel like it’s an all-day photoshoot. (Your bridal party will thank you!)
After your wedding, you’ll receive an edited preview gallery in 1-2 days!! WHAAAT!! No need to make your profile pic a blurry iPhone photo the day after your wedding. (Sorry Aunt Helen, I know your iPad takes great pictures!) Your full online downloadable and shareable gallery will be available 3-4 weeks after your wedding. If you ordered an album, I’ll create the first draft of the page design 8-10 weeks after your wedding and send it over for you to review and customize.
I’ve seen it all, so please feel free to use me as a resource when planning your wedding! I’m not just here to take pretty pictures, I’m also here for guidance, reassurance, or to lend a sympathetic ear if your seating arrangements (or loved ones) are driving you nuts.
