let's get this party started!

I can't wait to meet you!


On the big day, I will be apart of your crucial team to make sure everything goes according to your plans.  There with a camera in hand and jokes on standby to keep any nervousness away.

Post wedding, I'll be that friend who checks in with peeks of beautiful images of all the events. Following shortly will be your full gallery with the option to download your favorites immediately or share them with family & friends.

Never hesitate to let me know of anything you need.

From the moment you inquire, I got you.  I am an open book of knowledge and experience that can help you navigate this of process what a professional photographer can bring to your wedding day.  I have attended  weddings of all varieties from the micro DIY wedding  to the large  lavish wedding. I can provide tips and tricks in planning to make this process smoother for you.

The authentic process

Grab some coffee, a pen and paper, and your phone! This process starts off with inquiring with your wedding date . You can send an email, a Facebook message, or text to check availability. 
After that we can have a chat about what to expect, my usual method of madness, and how I can help you have the day you dreamed of. 
Feel free to have a list of questions, I am sincerely an open book.

Hey friend,
let's have a chat!


The next step after choosing me comes the important pre-wedding steps. I will send  a booking proposal full of information for you to look over, and double check. It reserves your day in my calendar and makes sure we are on the same page.  It will include a questionnaire, a contract, and request for payment. This would also be the time to do any research for photographs you may yearn to attain and schedule your engagement session. 



Engagement sessions are crucial to the creative process. They allow us to work together without rush to get a feel for how your wedding photography will flow. 
From mountain fields to urban settings, locations can be chosen on what feels best for your lifestyle.
What's the most popular? The venue for your wedding.  It allows you to perhaps use spots you wouldn't have  time to on your day and scope out any favorite spots you want to use. 

The engagement session


It's your wedding day!
Time to pop the champagne and put to work everything we talked about! 

Let's have fun!


Time to kick back and unwind . Now is when I work my editing magic to beautifully display your portraits and details. Images are edited using light touch up of blemishes but still keeping you, looking like you! 
Then my style is applied. I aim to keep my photographs bright with true to life colors and punchy jewel tones to keep your images timeless.

You'll remember the feelings forever

An online gallery will be a private link you receive via email that will contain all of your finished edited images. Galleries stay open for  2 weeks so please make sure to download immediately  and back up a few copies to other storage options. 


Weddings:  Packages can be adjusted up to 30 days prior to the wedding date without  additional fees
Children: However, cake smash themes cannot be changed  less than 1 week prior to the date due to arrival of supplies. 


A retainer is a nonrefundable deposit (typically 20% of your total ) that reserves your day in my calendar solely for you.  Circumstances may change and that is OK. Contact me for more information regarding retainers.


WEDDINGS: As soon as  you have a date solidified and venue booked. I typically start booking one year in advance for weddings
CHILDREN: The sooner the better.  With children, I like to keep flexibility and so I will book around expected little ones  and birthdays.  Typically maternity sessions happen around 34-37 weeks and newborn sessions should be done within the first 10 days of life. Cake smashes should be planned 1 month out allowing 2 weeks for planning and 2 weeks for editing time to be done for their actual birthday.
