I take the time to get to know you and your unique story. Through video calls/coffee dates/happy hours, we will develop a level of comfort together so that you don’t have a stranger standing by your side on your best day ever.


I capture a limited number of weddings per month/year. This is intentional so that you have my undivided effort, energy, and creativity on the biggest day of your lives.


I am more involved in the planning process than most photographers because I genuinely care about you having the best day ever! I will help you source vendors, scout photo locations, create a timeline, write your vows (seriously!), and brainstorm ways to make your day unforgettable.


I capture candid images, but I still give you guidance and direction in front of the camera. You don’t have to practice poses, I will direct you with actions and movements that help us capture authentic moments. 


I edit your photos to be timeless. Rather than overly editing to fit the latest trend, your images will be natural, bright, and beautiful for decades to come.

Frequently Asked Questions

how would you describe your approach to photography?

My approach is to capture natural, candid, authentic moments that will become lifelong memories. While my photography style is candid, I still give lots of guidance and direction! I capture authentic photos by giving you and your partner prompts, movements and actions that make you feel comfortable and confident in front of my camera. As far as my editing style goes, I edit my images to be light, effortless, romantic, and timeless so that they will be beautiful for decades to come. My photos are not overly edited, instead they are an enhanced version of reality so that you can remember every detail of the place, the people, and the feelings you had on your best day ever.

HOW MANY WEDDINGS DO YOU SHOOT PER YEAR?

I limit myself to 15-20 weddings per year, 1-3 weddings per month. This is in an effort to give each of my couples my undivided attention, energy, and creativity when the time comes for their big day. This is the most special day of your lives, and you're investing so much in me as your photographer, that I owe it to you to be completely invested in your day in return.

WHY SHOULD WE HIRE YOU?

I'm not just a girl who shows up to your wedding with a camera, I'm right by your side through the whole wedding process (and usually beyond!!). I'm an all-inclusive photographer for couples who want the full experience. So you should hire me if you like my photography style and can picture yourself in past photos I've taken, if you like my personality and wouldn't mind hanging out with me on your best day ever, and if you're wanting a photographer who will get to know you personally and sincerely invest in both your wedding and your marriage.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET OUR PHOTOS BACK?

I believe it's super important to deliver your wedding photos quickly, and I do this by taking on a limited number of weddings per month/year. Because of that, you will receive your full wedding photo gallery within 2-3 weeks after your wedding via an online gallery. You'll be able to download all of the images right to your phone/computer, order prints/albums/frames, and easily share the link with family & friends. (Don't worry, you'll also receive preview photos in the meantime!)

DO YOU HELP AT ALL WITH THE WEDDING PLANNING PROCESS?

YES! I am more hands-on and involved than most wedding photographers, and this is because I want to do everything I can to make sure you have a fun, carefree wedding day. My clients come to me for help selecting vendors, location scouting, day-of timeline planning, permit assistance, travel logistics, stylistic advice, writing your vows (seriously!), and more.

DO WE HAVE TO PAY FOR YOUR TRAVEL/FLIGHTS/HOTEL/ETC?

Nope! I account for all of my travel expenses in the pricing you see. I know that you already have a lot of coordinating to do, so you just pay the package price and I take care of the rest!

WHAT IF YOUR FLIGHT IS DELAYED?

I travel to the destination of your wedding days in advanced. This is so that I won't have any issues if there are flight delays, and also so that I have plenty of time to scout out the area for the best photo ops.
