Your investment in wedding photography is also an investment in your first family heirloom. After the dress is packed away, the cake is boxed up, and the guests have all driven home, your wedding pictures will be how you can continue to relive the most wonderful and special day of your life.
We don't take the importance of this honor lightly. That's why we ensure that our clients get an amazing experience from beginning to end. From the moment we first meet over coffee and chat wedding details, to when you place your wedding album on the shelf in your newlywed home, you can be sure that you are getting care, attention, and love at every step of the way.

A Friend for Life
I'm an expert in natural light and indoor flash photography. I strive to capture the joy and emotion of the day so your photos will withstand the test of time.
You want photos that capture your fun personalities and those genuine wedding day giggles. I love capturing all of these tiny moments that make up your day!
My couples constantly tell me how much I put the room at ease with my calm demeanor. I'm a strong communicator, so I'll be in touch about all the details and make sure everything goes according to plan!
This day is above all, a celebration of you and your love and the commitment you are making to one another. It's a true honor to be a part of this important day in your lives.
How many hours of coverage will I get?
I have done anywhere from two to twelve, depending on your needs! Make sure to contact me for a custom packaged plan :)
What kind of gear do you use?
A: I shoot with 2 Canon 5D Mark IV cameras, 2 Canon 580 EX II flash bodies, 1 Canon 100mm Macro lens, 1 Canon 85mm 1.8 lens, and 1 Canon 24-70 2.8 lens. I also provide all of the necessary styling boards, ring boxes, accents, and creativity to ensure your day is captured perfectly from the getting ready details to that final dance!
How soon after our shoot will I see the photos?
One to four weeks is a good rule of thumb for weddings. Sometimes after portrait sessions, I am able to deliver the photos on the same day as our shoot! Film photo return times are about 3-5 weeks.
I want to book you! What’s the next step?
First of all, YAY! I am SO excited. Please inquire through my contact form. Once your wedding date is secured, you can sign your proposal, put down your 50% retainer, and… woohoo! I’m yours!
Will we meet in person before our session?
I believe that genuine interactions are super important to your wedding day success! I would love to chat over coffee, Facetime, or a cocktail to get to know you better. I also apply the engagement session to every wedding day package so that we can get to know each other better through shooting!
Do you offer videography?
Yes! I have a team of videographers who will shoot in a consistent style with mine to capture your day on film.
It would be my honor to capture your wedding day. Reach out today to check your date's availability and chat about your wedding plans!
