You deserve a photographer who is:

down to earth, laughs at your dad jokes, and takes your wedding as seriously as their own

 

You’re TIRED OF:

  • Boring, stiff, and staged photographs that don’t display real emotion

  • Being talked at rather than listened to

  • Losing sleep because you don’t know if you’ll love your photographs

You Want a photographer Who:

  • Can make you laugh and forget you’re in front of a camera

  • Loves listening to you and dreaming with you

  • Cares as much as you do about your wedding photographs

 

If this sounds like you then

 I'm your girl!!

What others are saying



Featured on


A few of the places where you can see my couples’ untamed love stories:

 
 

Have a question? I can help!

 

+ What other kind of sessions do you offer?

Aside from weddings, I offer both on-location and in-studio portrait sessions. Should you wish to have part or all of your session in the studio, you may choose between a white and a grey backdrop. Available portrait sessions include but are not limited to: families, high school seniors, couples, headshots, and maternity.

+ Do we have the copyrights to the images?

I retain the copyrights to the images but you will receive printing rights to them. Printing rights allow you to print your photos where ever you like!

+ Will the images be retouched, and color enhanced?

I do minimal retouching on my edits. I believe we should embrace and celebrate our beauty without much photoshopping. If necessary, however, blemishes will be removed.

+ Will you be our actual photographer?

Unless I become deathly ill or some other act of God prevents me from photographing your event, I will always be your lead photographer.

+ Do you have a back-up photographer in case you get ill the day of our wedding?

Should I get sick (though I rarely do) I will send a back-up photographer. I work with a community of talented second photographers so should the unthinkable happen and I get sick, you will certainly be great hands!

+ Have you ever shot at {location} before? It's where our ceremony will be!

If I haven't photographed at a location before, I will always scope out it out beforehand (preferably with you and your fiancé) so I have a game plan for your wedding day (i.e. where I want to do the first look photos, where I want to do couple portraits, what equipment will be used to provide you with the best possible photos, etc).

+ Is there an estimated number of photos we will get?

You will get all of the photos from your day excluding missed focus shots, photos with bad expressions/half open eyes, and exact duplicates. For 8 hours of coverage and 1 photographer, you can expect to receive around 1,000 photos. If you have a 2nd photographer covering your wedding, the number of photos you receive will increase.

+ Is 8 hours typically long enough for wedding coverage?

I believe 8 hours is the "Goldilocks" of wedding coverage -- it's usually the perfect amount of time to capture all of the important moments of the day. With 8 hours, coverage typically starts when you're about ready to put your dress on and ends after the first dance and parent dances.

Copyright is basically who has ownership over the photo -- I retain that as the photographer. Printing rights allow you to print the digital photos wherever you like, as many times as you like.

+ What equipment do you use?

I exclusively use Canon camera bodies, lenses, and flashes. My primary camera body is a Canon 5D Mark III and I have an assortment of Canon lenses (macro, telephoto, wide angle, and zoom).

+ How many weddings have you shot?

It's almost impossible for me to count at this point haha!

+ Do you back-up your photos?

Yes, I always back-up my photos! I even shoot with a back-up memory card in my camera just in case. Once I'm done editing your photos, I double back-up those finalized files and keep them forever!

+ Does the time of a portrait session include transportation time to different locations or just shooting?

Yes, the session time does include travel time once we've started working. However, I'm not super strict with stop times. If we run a bit over our scheduled time because it took a long time to get to a second location I'm not going to cut us off just because we hit out schedule end time.

+ Do you have a travel fee?

All of my wedding collections include 120 miles of round trip travel. Anything above that is subject to the standard IRS milage rate.

+ What photo albums do you offer?

I offer two kinds of Legacy Albums - 11x8 and a 12x8. Each album comes with 20 pages. Legacy album investments start at $350.
