Thank you for delivering an exceptional product. Looking through these incredible pictures brought the moment back to life, and your work reflects what an awesome experience it was.

For your daily dose of serotonin, display these beautiful memories in an expertly designed wall gallery or rich textured album.  Ooh la la!

Engagement, Bridal and Boudoir sessions are a perfect compliment to a season of celebrating each other. And they make great wedding gifts!

Our Wedding Offerings

There are so many ideas about what is most important on a wedding day, but the only ideas that matter to me are yours. Every wedding is visually unique, and every couple brings a different dynamic of values to the story line.

Do you want more time for portraits or more time with long distance guests? Is there special meaning to every little carefully and prayerfully designed detail? Have you been waiting your whole life to reveal your dream wedding playlist and killer dance moves? Don't by shy!

These are the things I am going to learn about you and love about your wedding story. My goal as your photographer is to create beautiful imagery from all of these thoughtful elements that will evoke wonderful memories for decades. 

my philosophy

Wedding Day Coverage

Portrait Sessions

The wedding is iconic, but it is not the whole picture.

There's more to you... your favorite flannel shirts, your signature brew, your other favorite season. 

What does love look like on a normal day? On a dinner date? In ten years, what will you miss most about this season? 

We don't have to have a session to get to know each other before the wedding, but it is a fun time. And we don't have to book a wedding to have a fun session. 

engagement, bridal & boudoir

Your highest priority decisions as a newly engaged couple should be based on what you value most. Your wedding will certainly reflect this in a hundred ways.

As a photographer, I am able to bring the significance of your wedding to life again and again long after the party is packed up! Pictures are able to restore our memories and stimulate all of our senses. So if you’re choosing to invest in high quality photography that tells a story, the obvious next step is to present your photos in an elegant and timeless display.

I offer high end albums that are handcrafted in the USA. Choose from a leather, silk, linen or photo cover. The design is clean and natural, making it a timeless keepsake that will be loved by your parents and your children's children!

Albums & Artwork

Finding the right wedding photographer is a little like speed dating. Just pass me your phone number on a napkin.   (It took my husband ten months to take that step!)

I'll check date availability, and then we'll get on that first call to talk about your hopes and dreams... for your wedding, of course. And how do I fit into the plan?

Because I only take on a limited number of weddings per year, I have more time to listen to and serve my clients and their families. I will send over an outline of custom collections based on what I've learned about your plans.

the first call


When everything looks good, you click the link provided to move forward to the online booking package (proposal - contract - invoice).

Confirm your collection choice and enter your details on the proposal form. Review, initial and sign the contract. Pay the invoice. Done! 
Important: The non-refundable retainer of 25% is required to secure your date.

With formalities out of the way, we can start having fun! Your client portal will house the "paperwork" as well the upcoming planning tools.

Portrait sessions are a great way to get comfortable interacting with the camera and exploring posing cues that work naturally for you both.

Engagement portraits are most popular if we are able to meet a few months ahead of the wedding. Pre-wedding sessions (including boudoir) are great for destination weddings with tighter timelines.  

We'll schedule your session and your premiere appointment (to view and order prints and digital files) shortly after. This is a great time to use your included print credit for wall art, thank you cards, or surprise gifts.

schedule portraits & premiere


Your wedding photography experience begins long before the camera clicks.
The year leading up to the wedding day is chock full of communication with helpful tools. We think it is imperative to collaborate on the timeline to make sure your vision for photography is not only realistic but can be executed with joy. 

All of our clients have a private online portal to house documents for easy reference. We also include pre-wedding questionnaires for wedding day shot lists, publication stories, and album pre-design. 



Your wedding day is a fully immersive experience. You do not have time to worry about your vendors doing their job. We have already developed a great working relationship, so you can be at ease.

I like to arrive early enough to introduce myself to family and get settled in with your arrangement of details (rings, stationery and jewelry). The first part of the day is the dance between finding the best light and the emotional moments that you'll cherish forever. I'll direct portraits throughout the day and make lots of space for you to enjoy your long awaited celebration.

The event of a lifetime


Your wedding day becomes an incredible memory that fades over time. We know that's why you are choosing to have amazing photos, but we are here to help you turn those beautiful images into archival quality heirloom products that will out last your memories.

Digital files are wasted on a hard drive and already obsolete on a USB. Your wedding images belong in a frame above eye level, in a (heavy) hand crafted album you can glide your fingers across, or tucked away as proofs in a box of treasures. 

We invite you to see your images for the first time in a special presentation and then order your heirloom products for your home and parent gifts.

The Process

We cull the images we shoot down to the storyline and usually deliver 70-100 images per hour of coverage. Raw images are processed for color and tone and exported to proof ready files. Proofs are perfect for printing up to 8x10, and a print release is included in the digital download of your entire proof gallery.

Retouching is discussed during your premiere and applied to all images that will be printed in your album or large on the wall.

How do you handle raw images and retouching?

Our collections are based on time and include a portrait session and a print credit. We don't tie you to printed products before you've seen your images, but we can't wait to build an album that is as custom as your wedding day!

What do you include in your collections?

Yes, when we get to talking about your wedding, I will send over a couple galleries that might interest you. I have a variety of venue types with every kind of timeline.

Can we see the full galleries of your weddings?

I am primarily a digital photographer, though I am playing with film again. It will be a while before I put my film hobby into a real wedding. 

Do you shoot digital or film?

As your wedding flows from getting ready to final goodbyes, I read the room and take my cues from the master schedule. If we have time, I like to leave space for organic moments. When the family is waiting for guidance, I speak up and keep things moving along. I am not one to stand around and wait for things to happen, but I am also not there to apply pressure. You have more important things to focus on, like enjoying your wedding day.

How would you describe your working style?

Unless the wedding is very small and in a venue I am familiar with, I like to have at least one person to keep me organized and communicating effortlessly. 

Professional second photographers are an available add-on to our collections. I have a short list of colleagues that prefer to create beautiful images without taking the lead on a wedding. And I like to find the perfect fit for interns to ease into weddings.

Will you work with assistants and second photographers at our wedding?

We only book one wedding per day and prefer to only have one per week. Our sweet spot is eight total for the summer. This gives us more time to provide a better service to our couples and keep to a 6-8 week turnaround time.
