You desire to get married to your best friend, have your wedding beautifully documented, and enjoy each moment (yes, even the photography part). 

 

 I desire to serve you, support you, and guide you each step of the way, from wedding planning to selecting your heirloom wedding album. I desire to capture your wedding with creative spirit and authenticity while making you feel comfortable and confident so that your photographs represent who you are and the emotions of your day.

Friend, when you choose me to be your photographer, you're not only investing for me to show up and document your day, but you are investing in my expertise, years of experience, creative insight, support, and killer dance moves.

I will be there on your wedding day to help alleviate stress and make sure things run smoothly. I will help you be present and in the moment while capturing your raw emotions.

MY COUPLES DESCRIBE ME AS...

"...calm in a sea of chaos and kept us laughing and light-hearted."

— joseph + anne

the full experience

1. consulting

Reach out on my contact form and let’s get started! Before you book, I'd love to meet you, discuss everything that you would like captured, and review any questions you have! This is a big decision and an investment, I totally get it. I was once there, too. 

2. booking

I will send you over a proposal including your investment and contract electronically. Once you've signed the contract and paid a 25% deposit, I'm all yours! Well, for your big day, at least. Remember, I counter sign the contract, so I'm held accountable too!

3. engagement

If you decide to have an engagement session, this will happen at the time and location of your choosing! Whether it be at your home, your favorite coffee shop downtown, that brewery where you had your first date, or out in nature where you feel comfortable, this is a great opportunity for us to get to know each other better! 

4. planning

We are in this together! I've done this many times and with over 6 years of experience in the industry, I'm confident in helping you plan your day! Need help with your timeline? I'm here for you! Need to figure out who to add to your family formal list? I've got you! We will continue to communicate over the phone and email up until your wedding to ensure your day runs smoothly!  I'll offer you guidance every step of the way so that you feel confident and comfortable! 

I'll offer you guidance every step of the way so that you feel confident and comfortable! 

5. documenting

It is going to be a whirlwind of a day, but this is why documentation is vital. I will be there to guide you and your loved one, give you direction, make you feel comfortable, bring out your authentic love and true personalities. I will be there to create quiet moments and help you two slow down amongst the chaos. I'm confident that your wedding photography experience will be enjoyable! 

“I will be there to create quiet moments and help you two slow down amongst the chaos.”

6. editing

I back everything up in multiples places, then, once I know everything is safe and sound, I begin editing. The editing process is very much a creative and artistic process. I take care with each image. Your photographs will be timeless, striving to defy the traditional. After I’ve edited everything, I go back to make sure everything is perfect before I hand them over. Because the process is extremely hands-on, it can take up to 6-8 weeks. 

“I believe the story of your day is just as meaningful as the images captured”

7. reliving

I am just as excited to share your images with you as you are to relive your day! As I go through the editing process, I'll send you sneak peeks and I'll blog your wedding before it's delivered so that you can see a little glimpse into the entire story of your day before the process is complete. I believe the story of your day is just as meaningful as the images captured. Once the editing process is finalized, I deliver your photographs digitally on an online gallery, with viewing and full downloading/printing copyrights. A bit after you receive your online gallery you will also receive a gifted USB. The USB is a tangible way to save your photographs and cherish them forever.

Time is relentless. It is inevitable. It passes quickly, often too quickly. If you had the ability to stop time, would you? I would.

 

If you love quiet moments and little giggles, roaring laugher, and passionate love, then you’ve met your match. If a candid photograph captivates your eye, then look no further. If you’re wondering when the last time you had photographs taken or desire documentation for an event or life milestone, then it's time to find your photographer!

Curious about pricing? I get it! Want to know all the goodies that are included? Contact me so I can fill out in on all the glorious details!

So… what happens next? Like any social interaction, we talk. We have a conversation about what you are looking for to determine the best setting, little details, and your ideal collection.

Still have questions? That's okay! Check out my frequently asked questions!
