I have always loved weddings I actually took a course on wedding planning before becoming a wedding photographer. Though this business started as a portrait focused business weddings have become a major focus.
Weddings are one of the biggest days of your life and that is why I treat them with such care. Every wedding is different and unique and my goal is to show that in a beautiful way. This is why you will see true skin tones, authentic lighting, and never over done editing.
I love capturing genuine moments. I have invested one hundred percent into this new business and continue to learn how to be the best photographer I can be.
A LIFETIME OF MEMORIES
I believe that wedding photography is determined by moments and not minutes. That is why collections are designed to capture the day as it unfolds with a timer.
You've thoroughly combed through my website, blog and Instagram feed and you like what you see. So the next step is setting up a time to chat to make sure we're the perfect fit for one another.
Once your date is officially reserved, I'll send over a few goodies to help you prepare for the big day. I am happy to serve as a resource for vendor recommendations, timeline guidance and more!
Sessions can take place anywhere from immediately following a proposal to just a few days before the wedding. I’ve found that there isn’t a “good” or “bad” time to take your photos.
I will check in about two months before the wedding to start chatting about timeline specifics, special details, family formal shot lists, special traditions and anything else I should know about your big day.
It's finally here! The day the two of you say "I Do" and dance the night away surrounded by your family and friends. Just know I'm excited to celebrate and capture your wedding day. It's going to be awesome.
You can expect your photos to be delivered via an online gallery within about three weeks of your wedding. At that time, I'll also send over details about preserving your images through prints and albums.
Wedding collections begin at $4249 and the average couple spends $4700 for full day coverage.
I create custom packages for each and every one of my clients.
For more details on wedding packages and to find out more about a custom package, please contact me.
I believe every wedding is different so collections should be too. I understand that some couples like pre-made collections, which is why I have some of those. But what most couples have come to love is the custom collection made for them.
