I want to give you timeless images of your day where you become one. Not only that, I want to help you be as present as possible to each special moment throughout the day. 

Your wedding day should be a day you never forget.  The best way to  freeze those beautiful moments in time-the dress, the way he looks at you as you walk down the aisle, "I do"-is through photos.  The day may pass quickly but images remain forever.

The magical process

Capturing your wedding day is truly such an honor for me! It's also an intimate experience for you as a couple. That's why it's important for us to get to know one another, so you feel absolutely comfortable in front of my camera on your special day!
Let me buy you a coffee, get to know you and your fiance, and talk about what  matters most to you photography-wise, on your wedding day.

Hey friend,
let's take a coffee


If you've decided we are the right fit for each other, then it's now time to decide what your photography needs are for your big day. Do you want me there from the moment you begin getting ready to the moment you make your grand exit? Are you having a smaller wedding that will only be a few hours from start to finish? Whatever matters most for you will determine which collection suits you best!

choose your


Once you've chosen your collection, signed your contract & paid your deposit, it's time to start planning which moments you want captured! Do you want to do a first look? Will all of your extended family be present for family portraits? Do you want sunset portraits after your ceremony? I'm here to help guide your day run as smoothly as possible, so you can be as present as possible. 

let's get planning!


Your wedding gallery will be delivered digitally within 8 weeks of your wedding day. I hand edit each image and do not deliver a gallery until I am 100% satisfied with it, so that you are 100% satisfied as well. 

You'll remember the feelings forever

 Wedding galleries are delivered within 6 weeks of your wedding day.

When will we receive our images?

After our initial coffee day, I meet in person  with my couples 2 months prior to their wedding date, to go over their wedding day timeline, shot list, and make sure I know exactly what they want captured on their wedding day. 2 weeks before the big day we have a quick phone conversation to finalize details and make changes if necessary.

how often will we meet before the wedding?

Yes! Engagement sessions are a wonderful way for us to get to know one another and for you to become comfortable in front of my camera.For couples who book my wedding collection 3, I provide a complimentary engagement session for you..  For collections 1 & 2, Engagement sessions are $500.

can we book an engagement session?

A retainer is a non-refundable deposit that is required at the time of booking to reserve your session dates. Weddings require a 50% deposit. The remainder of your collection fee is due 30 days prior to your wedding. 


I book weddings up to 1 year in advance, so as soon as you have a date chosen and have determined I'm a good fit for you, I recommend booking!
