Congrats on your engagement! I'm truly honored to be invited into this joyful chapter of your life. I can't wait to learn your love story, and share in your joy along the entire process. I grow to care about you as more than clients, and we typically connect as well on a more personal level!
My approach is simple. I shoot light and airy images, prioritizing the achievement of bright, classic skin tones. I focus on instigating real, genuine moments between my couples, paired with a heavy emphasis on the pretty little details to support your story.
We'll be spending a serious amount of time together on one of the most important days of your life thus far. I strongly believe that every couple deserves a photographer who is the perfect fit to tell the story of their day!

Upon inquiry, you will receive a multi-page bridal pricing guide with collection information and pricing. From there, we'll set up a consultation to discuss details further to ensure we're a fabulous fit! Once we've met and decided the feeling is mutual, we'll make it official with a seamless and simple process, signed contract and 50% retainer.
Dates are typically reserved 8-12 months prior to your wedding, and availability decreases with shorter notice. Elopements are reserved 2-3 months prior to your date.

I gift my clients with an engagement session with every wedding collection I offer. You're not obligated to take advantage of this gift, but I sure hope you do! This session is a time for us to get to know one another before your big day, and it gives us a chance to get you comfortable in front of the camera.
We'll work together to decide on the perfect location for your shoot. Your only job during our session is to bring the love - I will educate you on everything from wardrobe to posing throughout this entire process.

About 8 weeks prior to your wedding, we'll set up a pre-event consultation where we go over all the little details to ensure you're prepared for your special day. This is when we'll curate a timeline, together, that ensures you end up with gorgeous, magazine editorial images and genuine documentation of your day.
We'll also craft a list of family formal portraits. This list will help our team orchestrate, and get you through one of the most chaotic times on your wedding, without having to lift a finger.

Your wedding means more to me than just an opportunity to produce captivating images. The memories you create on your day will last a lifetime. While I'm working to capture your spectacular images, I make every effort to create an atmosphere of positivity and encouragement that surrounds you. I ensure moments of solitude for my couples, allowing them to be present and reflective, alone together in the midst of a joy-filled day that will pass way too fast.
I capture all my wedding days with a mix of medium format film, along with duplicate digital copies for safety. All images are earnestly composed to capture a mix of genuine moments and editorial details.

All collections include a gifted engagement session, minimum of 6 hours of wedding day coverage, a second photographer, planning consultation,, timeline curation, minimum of 80 images/hr edited and delivered in my signature style, and an online gallery that displays all of your high-resolution digital images. Investment costs and further information for wedding photography and a la carte portrait sessions can be provided with a simple email inquiry.
Collections with high resolution, digital galleries begin at $4400
