Multi-Day Coverage

Some of the most meaningful and intimate moments of the weekend actually happen on rehearsal evening, so make sure you preserve them too! 

Photos captured on film are as authentic as they come. There is no way to edit or enhance film photos; they come exactly as they are - and there lies the beauty. 

 In a world that moves so fast, albums give you a tangible experience of sitting down and flipping through all of the memories that make up your day. 

So much happens simultaneously at weddings and they're all worth remembering. A second photographer makes for double the angles, moments, and fun.

My approach is rooted in the belief that serving my clients is both a passion and a gift, something I consider a God-given calling. From the outset, I place you at the heart of my process, focusing on your needs, desires, and comfort to ensure an exceptional experience. Your wedding day is not just an event; it's a cherished moment in your life, and my heart is set on making it everything you've ever dreamed of and more.

DESIRE TO SERVE

There's intention behind everything I do. Before you book, we'll spend time getting to know each other in order to align our vision and make sure we're the best fit. Once booked, I create an intentional and high end experience to help guide you through your engagement. From comprehensive guides to thoughtful questionnaires and personal mood boards, the intention in my client experience is to make you feel supported, confident, and cherished. On your wedding day, this extends to my approach. Every detail is captured with great care, from the subtle glances to the intricate decor, to ensure your gallery is full of memories that authentically reflect your love and the significance of your wedding day.

INTENTION

As a photographer, my job is to preserve the memories you never want to forget. As a people-person, I care about the way you feel. From the first moment we connect, it's not just about capturing photos; it's about understanding your unique story. I approach each wedding with empathy, understanding the significance of the moments we're about to create together. Your wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime moment, and I always want to be sensitive to your feelings and needs.

heartwarming notes

(from clients, turned friends)

We're awkward in pictures. is that ok?

01.

Of Course! Most people feel awkward getting their photo taken - I know I do! But, I promise that this will not be like other times. I'll make it easy, and guarantee you'll be saying something different once you are done. Photoshoots with me are candid and fun. Forget stiff poses and fake smiles, you'll cuddle, play, and laugh for real. 

how early should I reach out?

02.

I recommend reaching out as soon as possible! With a limit of 15 weddings or elopements per year, dates tend to book up quickly, often over a year in advance. This ensures that each couple receives the dedicated attention they deserve.

How soon will we get our photos?

03.

I deliver 20-40 "sneak peek" photos within 24 hours after your wedding and you will receive the full gallery within ONE MONTH! Sessions take a maximum of 2 weeks.

will you shoot film or digital?

04.

I shoot digital for all of my weddings and have film included in a few of my packages. All weddings and sessions can be customized to add-on film and I highly recommend you do! Film photography offers a timeless and nostalgic charm to your overall gallery and I wholeheartedly recommend couples to consider adding it to their wedding and engagement session. Your film will be processed, scanned, corrected, and delivered digitally with your gallery!

How do we book you?

05.

Once you inquire with me you can expect to hear back within 12 hours with details about my availability. From there, we hop on a video call to make sure we're the right fit, then I send you a contract and invoice. Once all that's done, the fun part of planning your wedding begins! Not sure exactly what you need? We'll talk through all of this together.
