If this is the first time hiring a photographer - or if you’ve done this many times before - it’s so important to find the right fit to ensure an unforgettable experience. Do your research and make sure you can envision yourself in the style of photos that your photographer takes. You want them to be beautiful and true to you.
The relationship we build-and the experience we share-directly correlates to how you feel about your photos. I take the time and care to develop a lasting relationship with you. To share in the excitement and learn your eye for detail. Your hopes and wishes. I'll guide you on the most exciting journey - hopefully many more to come.
We’re approaching the most important day of your life! I’m sure lots of photo ops and ideas are rushing through your mind like crazy -This moment, that portrait, this detail… It’s a lot. That’s why you need an eye and a partner you can trust. With over a decade of experience, I’ve seen most everything. And every twist and turn is an exciting new opening.
We will talk a lot leading up to your wedding day! Remember, I get excited when you get excited. I cry when you cry. I laugh when you laugh. I tell your story best when I feel what you feel. I will ask you which moments you are dreaming of and again how you envision your wedding as a whole. These conversations help me approach your day with a fresh vision.
Are you wearing a wedding dress passed down from generation to generation? Are you wearing a family heirloom? Are you reading your own vows? Are you surprising your loved one with something? Are you choreographing your first dance as a surprise to your guests? Will their be fireworks? Tell me EVERYTHING and I’ll capture your story as it naturally unfolds.
Tell me who and what is most important to you… and also tell me about any potential stressors that you are feeling. That way I can hone in on those personal and emotional moments with the people who matter most. Together, we’ll also draft a timeline throughout your engagement to ensure we have the space, time, and setting for the photos of your dreams. Rest assured, though, that we’ll embrace spontaneatity. If we are celebrating your day by crossing items off a list, photo by photo, it will take away the spontaneity and emotion. So, TRUST ME. You will end up with a personal story of your day - and it will be filled with gorgeous details, natural light filled portraits, and candid intimate moments. The true dynamic range of your day, exactly as you remember it.
All of my wedding couples receive a hand-crafted, fully customized wedding album with their personal photo collection. It’s so important to cherish your wedding photographs in a tangible way - on your coffee table or bookshelf– where you can hold them and share your favorite moments with your loved ones and passing on those memories to future generations. It’s a true heirloom.
I’m not just a “show up and shoot” type of girl. Transportative photographs come from authentic dialogue. Subtle cues and unspoken understandings. This is a two-way relationship - nothing artificial. We are telling your story together. When we create together, your photos are more meaningful and have more emotional depth.
I am a hybrid photographer, shooting a combination of film and digital. The light and moment dictates the medium. With both, I aim for classic and timeless images and editing that you will love for years to come.
It’s no myth that it takes a village! When you are choosing your wedding vendors, you are creating your wedding dream team - a peerless group of vendors with style you love and people you trust. Find a group of creatives who will work seamlessly together for you to build and deliver your dream.

Your engaged and now it is time to start thinking about your engagement session - the first chapter in this new story. Each wedding experience includes an engagement session because I think it is important to get to know you and your fiancé both personally and in front of the camera before wedding day.
