Firstly, congratulations!!! You're engaged. The next step is usually diving head first into wedding preparation and planning.
Picking me as your wedding photographer is such a huge honor and responsibility. Because of this, I don't take it lightly. I want to make sure that I vibe well with my couples before agreeing to take their wedding photos. It's so important that we create an authentic relationship. We will be working as a team on your special day so a friendship is simply required. To do this, I will have you follow a few steps to make sure we are the perfect fit!

WE BREAK THE ICE.
Okay, first step is on you! Fill out the contact form by clicking the “contact me” button at the bottom of this page and tell me all the little details about your love story and your vision for your wedding. I’ll respond as soon as possible and send you a questionnaire that will help me create a custom package for your needs. Then, I’ll send that off to you and schedule a time to chat so we can get to know each other a little better and make sure we vibe well! Don’t be nervous, it’ll be the most chill conversation ever.
We Plan & Create your Vision!
Once you’ve paid the retainer, you’re eligible to book your date! YAY. Now, we can get to the fun stuff. During this time, I will be your best friend. You can contact me as much as you want — ask me questions, bounce ideas off of me, ask me for recommendations/vendors, whatever! I’m your girl and I’m here for YOU.
You get to marry your lifelong dance partner!
Your day finally arrives (and probably so much faster than you expected). I show up at our agreed start time and I begin capturing the best parts of your best day. I’ll hang out with your friends and family and capture your newly married love. Basically, you’ll party it up and have the best day ever and I’ll be there taking pictures and loving every minute.
Within 48 hours, you’ll receive a little gallery of sneak peeks to share online with everyone who simply can’t wait to see the full gallery. I’ll take about 6 to 8 weeks to edit the rest of the photos before setting up an online gallery where you can view, obsess over, and stare at the photos for days. Now, you have the perfect day frozen in time, to go back to and relive for years to come.

frequently asked questions.
what is your editing style?
I take a storytelling approach to photography…which basically means that I love when my photos tell story of an event or an entire day. I want the story to come to life through the photos, something to look back and reminisce on. I love candid, real, and unscripted moments. That doesn’t mean that I don’t pose – I certainly do when it comes time to take the formal shots and portraits – but throughout the day, I’m more of a sideliner, taking photographs that you don’t expect and aren’t exactly prepared for.
My editing style is a mix of moody and rich tones – I love to play with golden and warm tones, contrast, and images that provoke emotion.
what is your pricing like?
I have general pricing available located here.
After the initial inquiry, I send the couple a questionnaire that helps me create a custom package according to their needs. My wedding packages start at $1800.
Please inquire for more details!
What’s the difference between full day and partial day coverage?
Full day coverage (8-10 hours with one or two photographers) will assure that you get everything photographed from your getting ready photos straight to until your dance party!
Partial day coverage (4-6 hours, only one photographer) is a good option if you’re looking to cut something from your day (i.e. you’re not interested in getting ready photos or you’re looking for photography coverage to end shortly after dinner).
Every wedding day is different and I’m always happy to help you figure out how much coverage you need to fulfill your wedding photography dreams!
How long does it take before I get my images?
Editing a wedding gallery can be quite time consuming, but I PROMISE, it's worth it! The length of time before you receive your photos depends on the size of your wedding, length of day and time of year, but generally around 4 to 6 weeks to complete editing a gallery for a wedding.
On the bright side, you will get a private gallery of some sneaks 48 hours after your wedding, just in case you simply can't wait to post a photo from your big day!
How many photos can we expect to get from our wedding?
I don’t provide an expected number of photos with my collections because each wedding is so different, and as a result the number of photos from each wedding will be different. However, I estimate around 75 photos per hour of coverage.
Things like the size of your wedding party, number of guests, length of time allowed for portraits, number of locations, number of photographers, travel time between locations, etc.. all play their part in how many photos you will end up with.
Do you deliver RAW images if we want them? What if we are willing to pay extra for them?
Simply put, the answer is no.
I do not ever deliver any RAW photos to clients. Many people ask why and the reason has to do with my art of photography. Delivering unfinished or RAW photos are kind of like delivering an unfinished piece of artwork. It doesn’t provide an accurate representation of myself as an artist or photographer.
A significant part of being a photographer is the editing process. The reason a client choose a specific photographer is usually because they love that photographers editing style. The editing process is unique to each photographer and I am lucky that my clients trust me enough to edit their photos according to my own creative direction. Providing RAW files would take away a large part of that creative aspect.
