here's the thing about weddings:

Capturing the real moments between you and your spouse is what I strive for. I want to make your day go as smoothly as possible and want it to be as relaxed as possible. Bring on the laughs, the tears, and the dancing! 

Take a walk with me, and imagine yourself walking down the aisle, the first look at your love as you turn the corner, the emotions filling your heart, the smile encompassing your entire body.

It's those moments that matter. It's those moments that we will capture. So that whenever you look back on your images, it takes you right back to those precious seconds where all that mattered was each other.

The first step in booking me as your wedding or elopement photographer is to send me a message and tell me a little bit about yourselves and your love story. I want to get to know you and understand what makes your relationship unique. We'll discuss your wedding date, location, and any specific photography requests you may have.

THE EXPERIENCE

I love to get together with my potential couples for coffee. I value meeting in person because that will help us decide if we are the right fit to work together. I want to get to know you as a person, not just a subject to photograph. Beautiful photos aren’t the only thing you need to consider when you’re searching for a photographer. You want someone you can connect with and feel comfortable with.

THE EXPERIENCE

Securing your wedding date! I will send you a wedding guide with all the information we talked about at your consultation. From there, you are able to pick the services or package you are interested in. After that decision is made, you will receive a proposal & a contract, and you will need to pay your retainer. This is a non-refundable fee that reserves your wedding day on my calendar and ensures that I'll be available to photograph your wedding!

If you've opted for an engagement session, we'll schedule this at a time and location that's convenient for you. This is a great opportunity to get comfortable in front of the camera and for us to get to know each other even better before your wedding day.
