A truly magical day
"I believe in capturing the real connection between a couple on the day that showcases their love. I’ve found the best way to do this is to represent what that means to you through every detail." This means through all the laughter, tears, and joy- I want to capture those memories with heart and intention.
Eloping is exhilarating, intimate, adventurous, and really all about two people in love! Based on what you'd like to do, elopements can be between 2 and 4 hours.
$600 and up
A typical wedding day begins with the end of getting ready, first looks, ceremony coverage, formals, and reception coverage. Includes 6 hours of coverage with one shooter. Extra time is available.
I NEED IT ALL!
If you're looking for more than one shooter and want video included, then this one is for you! 6 hours with two shooters and a videographer. You'll only have to go through and coordinate with one person instead of 20!

Why should you work with me?
Each wedding, couple, family and person is different, and each taught me something new. I bring that expertise and knowledge to every new story I am asked to capture.
It's not enough to be good at what you do. Being likable and loving others is a different expertise.
I believe my cameras are simply my way to love others and help influence their lives. That means we have fun together while I capture your important memories.
I also believe that hearts matter. On one level a wedding a love story. Your love story. On another level, it’s about how I view the best way to serve you.
Photography for me is more than a passion. It’s my lifelong dream and legacy for my daughters.
So why do I do it? Wedding photography is about connections and creatively exploring those narratives is interesting.
Who am I? I'm a photographer with a vision, who wants to work with you.
How far in advance should I book with you?
I can be flexible but I have a big girl weekday job and am a single mom, so at least 2 months before the date will be mutually beneficial! Popular dates tend to fill up as well, so as soon as you have your date set- see if I am available.
How many pictures will I receive?
I deliver an estimated 50 pictures for every hour. For 6 hours, that would be around 300, however, I tend to deliver every good image (I refuse to let them go to waste) and most galleries end up with way more than expected.
Is my retainer refundable?
In short, the answer is no. When booking, the retainer that you initially pay towards your coverage holds that date and time. It's reserved especially for you! Therefore, the retainer is not refundable, but any payments made after potentially are. You can always refer to your contract for the specifics.
Do you travel?
I do! I love to get around, do not be afraid to ask for pricing. If it's somewhere on my bucket list- I will likely not charge for travel.
What is your shooting style?
I'm very laid back and go with the flow in general. I make it a point to capture everything as I see it- journalistic, if you will. I do like to grab my couples for some fun creative concepts, but usually keep it short, so that your entire night isn't consumed with posing. I like to be traditional with family formals, because you will want something for the wall, but I will not force this unless it is especially asked for. When I send you a questionnaire, I specifically leave it to clients to choose!
Do you offer video?
Absolutely! Videos can be between 1 minute to 8 minutes long. The length is dependent upon what is discussed during your consultation.
Will I be able to print my pictures where I want to?
Yes. I have a few places to refer you to, but can not guarantee the quality if printed at places such as CVS, Sam's, or Walgreens.
Are RAWS available?
RAWS are very huge files, but can be purchased separately as long as you provide the dropbox for me to load them on to.
Do you backup galleries?
I keep backups of every wedding or session I have ever shot. I don't delete anything, but some things that are more than 6 years old will not be available because I can't hoard external hard drives forever....even if I wanted to.
Do you have a vendor list?
Yes. If you need any suggestions, I do know a lot of other vendors in the wedding industry that I can connect you with. It makes searching a little less of a headache.
Will I be able to add on time?
Yes, leading up to the day before- you have the option to add on time. Additional time is $275 per hour.
