The Wedding Experience

      We love because he first loved us.

      1 John 4:19

      My prayer for you is that during this season, you spend more time preparing for your marriage than you do planning your wedding. Your wedding is just one day, but your marriage is eternal I hope that you hold tightly to the memories that will be saved and captured through an artist’s lens! I would be more than honored to play that role for you on your wedding day.

      My Process

      I book a limited number of weddings each year so I can ensure that I can best love and serve each of my couples! My goal is to walk with you through this experience – from consultation through the delivery of your final album – and make you feel cared for and excited about the photos you’ll look back on for years to come.

      Consultation + Booking:

      I love to either meet with, or talk over the phone with every bride-to-be before booking! This gives us a chance to get to know each other and ensure we'd be a great fit. If we want to take the next step, we'll get your contract & deposit to make it all official!

      Engagement Session:

      I include a complimentary engagement session with each of my packages. This is a chance for me to get to know you as a couple so I can best serve you on your wedding day! Right after you book, you'll receive a fun questionnaire to help us start planning for your session!

      Timeline Planning:

      After shooting many, many weddings, I have learned how to create a timeline that flows well, feels fun + relaxed, and allows for me to capture beautiful images of your day! We will work together to build the perfect photography timeline for your day.

      Wedding Day:

      The most fun day! By the time we arrive at your wedding day, we'll have chatted about every little detail from my arrival to departure. Now, you get to sit back, relax, and enjoy getting MARRIED!

      Gallery Delivery:

      Within a month of your wedding day, you'll have all of your wedding images delivered to you! I go through the thousands of images I take and select the very best ones! After I edit your images to be sure they are light, airy, and elegant, I'll upload them to an online gallery that allows you to download all the images at once!

      What is your pricing for your wedding collections?

      On average, my brides invest $3,200 on photography! Each collection comes with a complimentary engagement session, wedding day coverage, an assistant to the lead photographer, and access to the high-resolution digital files. I know that every wedding is different, which is why I offer a la carte options for you to build your own package. This way, you can choose what you specifically need for your wedding day.

      How far in advance should we book our wedding photographer?

      Most wedding photographers, myself included, book weddings 10-18 months in advance! If you are working on a shorter timeline, that's totally fine. I planned my whole wedding in 6 months - it's definitely possible! Just shoot me an email to check my availability.

      Why do you include an engagement session with all of your packages? Can we swap it out for something else?

      I include an engagement session with each of my wedding collections because it’s important to me to get to know you!  I will be with you your entire day during your wedding, and I don’t want to show up and be just another vendor that’s following you around.  I want to know you, and I want you to know me, so I can best document what’s important to you on your special day. It always allows for more natural, authentic images on your wedding day because you know your photographer, and you’re more comfortable in front of the camera. Because of this, I don’t allow it to be switched out for another product or service – I really believe it’s that important!

      We're really awkward in front of the camera - can you help?

      Yes, of course! I understand that you might not have experience being photographed and I'm here to help with that. Through my easy shooing style and natural posing, I make sure that you look natural and lovely in your photos! Some people take a little longer to warm up, and in those cases I make sure that you feel comfortable and relaxed while we are shooting. I promise, it won't be nearly as bad as you think! Many of my couple arrive nervous, and leave feeling confident!

      How much time do I need to set aside for pictures on my wedding day?

      This completely depends on your wedding day! There are several big factors: the light, how big your bridal party is, how big your family is, if your reception is at a different venue, etc. Before your wedding, I will help you build a photography timeline to fit your day perfectly!

      When will we receive our images?

      Images from both your engagement session and your wedding will be delivered within 2-4 weeks!

      Will the images I receive be “retouched”?

      All of the images I provide to you will be color-corrected and adjusted for exposure, where necessary. Many don’t need any retouching. I do not do heavy Photoshop work because I think authentic is beautiful, but I will use it where necessary.

      Do I have to order prints through you?

      With your gallery, you will receive a full print release. This means you are welcome to print your images however you would like! I highly recommend ordering prints through professional vendors, but it is not required. The difference in quality when ordering through a professional lab is huge, so I always encourage my clients to let me help with prints!
