Your love is iconic, your photos should be too. You can look amazing in photos without it feeling forced, awkward, or even cliche. We can tell the story of your wedding day, complete with all its most powerful emotions, while still creating elevated and editorial portraits inspired by light, the power of presence, and human connection by mixing in playful candids to capture the real you. Giving you photos that make you scream "this is us".
My promise to you is that your wedding photos will be captured intentionally with heart, soul, and empathy. They'll represent a warm, rich style of photography that turns candid moments into art that looks like you've stepped out of a magazine spread. These photographs will be more than just candids, they will capture the truth to your storyline.
I will always capture how it all looked and felt. This means capturing moments with the true ambiance lighting of your day. Your photos should have that gorgeous and elegant true-to-life lighting from the candlelight and string lights at your reception. I will, of course, bring lighting and an array of flashes with me for special occasions, but usually, this is for when the party starts on the dance floor to give it a dance floor and rave party vibe. Adding this type of lighting in too soon will take away from how it was envisioned by you and how you remember it looking.
Your day will fly by in the blink of an eye. It's so important to remain fully present in your day. After all, you've dreamt of this day for so long and deserve to enjoy it. You won't have to worry about those small, intimate, in-between moments being missed. I got you, babe. They will be captured for you to feel and remember forever.
It's no secret that the value of time well spent with your most important people has become an even bigger priority in life. You selected and invited each one of your wedding guests for a reason and it's my job as your photographer to make sure they are not just captured on film but rather genuinely and intentionally documented. Your wedding gallery will be filled with all the emotions and moments of your day with their perspectives included. After all, they are apart of the story being told too.
Why custom collections? It's simple, really - Everyone is planning a different event, therefore has different needs. Creating fully customized collections tailored to your wants and need specifically means you don't have to worry about paying for things you don't need. We'll chat priorities and must-haves on the phone. I'll then send you an investment guide highlighting a few different options that fit you and your day best, allowing your day to be captured how you truly envision it.
Many things are going to happen well after the flowers wilt and the cake digests, but your memories of this day will be cherished for generations to come. How do you want to share your legacy with all your loved ones in ten, twenty, and fifty years from now?
It all starts with an initial inquiry to start the conversation. I would love to hear from you! The best thing I can create with clients is a connection and I would love to chat with you about your day. If the photographs you've seen here resonate with you, fill out the contact form, and let’s set up a time to talk on the phone so I can hear more about you, your partner, and your wedding vision. Hearing someone's voice on the phone beats reading a screen. I value connection and relationships and it all starts right here.
After the phone call, I'll create a custom investment guide and deliver it to your inbox at a time that's most convenient for you. You'll choose which collection you'd like by clicking the box in the guide and hitting submit. A proposal with the contract and invoice will then be sent within 24 hours of submitting your selection.
Leading up to your wedding, we will chat several times via email so that I can gather some information about you and your partner. I'll send questionnaires and guides to ensure we are aware of all the details. We'll discuss all the logistics and I'll be here to help in any way possible. More importantly, this is where I get to know you both a little better, take a peek into your lives to discover what inspires you, what's most important to you, what draws you to each other, and what you're most excited about for not just the wedding, but your marriage.
If you have chosen to add an engagement session to your wedding collection, I recommend scheduling your session right away as my calendar fills up quickly. I offer regular sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays only, as weekends are reserved for weddings. Engagement sessions are a great opportunity for us to meet, get to know each other better, and get you familiarized with being in front of the camera. Engagement sessions are heartfelt and playful, focusing on who you are in this moment and the connection between you two, embracing the unposed and imperfect moments.
I do all location scouting prior to my start time. We have done the prep beforehand so that come wedding day, you have full trust that everything meaningful to you will be documented. I will move in and out of the scene. I will be there when you need me for a bit of direction, but I will also be a fly on the wall to blend in and not be intrusive. I'm attentive and know how to read the room, taking in the mood, the overall feel, and always ready for all the planned and unplanned moments. I will be your advocate for the day and believe the most important thing for my clients is to be fully present and enjoy their day. You have poured so much love, time, and energy in planning and dreaming up your wedding down to every single detail.
I deliver sneak peeks within 72 hours of your wedding so that you don't have to share a blurry iPhone photo taken from Aunt Susan in the third row. It's also a great way to share the images I send with your family and friends who couldn't be there! I send this to you via text or IG DM, so you don't even have to worry about downloading from the gallery yet! You can expect to receive your final online gallery of the images in approximately 6-8 weeks after the wedding day. The amount of a completed gallery of images from a wedding always varies based on the day and events that occurred during the event, but generally, you can expect 75-100 images per hour of shooting. You’ll also have the option to invest in a legacy wedding album or you'll receive a design proof if you have already chosen to add on an album.
