THE WEDDING EXPERIENCE 
If I asked you who you’re going to spend the most time with on your wedding day, who would you point to? Your fiancé? Your mom? Your bridesmaids? Believe it or not, the answer is actually your wedding photographer! And this is why I’ve crafted a wedding photography experience that is as enjoyable as it is elegant. From the moment I join your vendor list to the moment you receive your final gallery, I am dedicated to bringing serenity, confidence, and genuine delight to every step of the way. I am committed to working closely with you and your wedding planner to create a once-in-a-lifetime experience filled with unforgettable moments. How do I do it? Explore the entire process I’ve laid out for you below!

SAY HELLo


The first step in our adventure together is a hello! Simply fill out my short, sweet inquiry form, complete with your date and location. Then, I’ll be in touch to confirm my availability for your special day. I’ll also share the next steps in your journey to “I do.” That’s when the fun begins!

Because the photography experience I offer is rooted in genuine friendship, let’s begin by getting to know each other in person or via video chat. During your consultation, I can’t wait to hear how he proposed and where you hope to travel on your honeymoon. I can also share a bit more with you about myself, my photography experience, and what it will be like to work with me. Prepare for a tidal wave of hugs and laughter!

make it offical!


After hearing more about your wedding day wishes, I’ll create a custom photography collection just for you! Then, after you approve the proposal, I’ll send a contract and retainer invoice your way. Once I receive both back from you, you can grab your wedding to-do list and check off a massive item because you’ve just booked your wedding photographer!

Next, we will hop on a call to create a mood board for your wedding.This is when I will help you create a vision for your day, reflecting your style and desires for your day. We will discuss your aesthetic, colors, textures, details and more to help your vision for your day come to life!

PRESERVE YOUR ENGAGEMENT

To prepare for save the dates, custom decor, or social media announcements, the next thing we will do is prep your engagement session. Together, we will select a location and styling to match your vision, so don’t stress about a thing. This will be the perfect opportunity for you to get comfortable in front of the camera while I discover the best ways to direct you naturally.

With years of experience in the wedding industry, I have far more to contribute to your day than just beautiful photos. I will assist you in crafting a stress-free wedding day timeline and in building the perfect list for your family portraits.

DOUBLE CHECK THE DETAILS

As the final week before your wedding approaches, I’ll send a final check-in to ensure that we are entirely on the same page when it comes to timing, location, and your photography wishes. This way, you can truly enjoy your final days before the big celebration without worry!

CELEBRATE YOUR WEDDING!

With the intense months of planning behind you, you’ll finally be able to enjoy your vision come to life! You’ll be able to enter fully into every single moment, knowing I won’t miss a single special second. And if something doesn’t go quite right, I’ll be ready with my stain remover, sewing kit, or an extra bottle of water to make sure it’s just an insignificant hiccup on the best day of your life.

RELIVE YOUR FAVORITE DAY

Just 24 hours after you’ve raced off into your happily ever after, I’ll send a sweet little sneak peek your way. You’ll be able to see your first photos from your wedding day, not to mention share them with friends, family, and social media. Meanwhile, I’ll be editing away on your full gallery. Only 8 weeks later, you’ll be able to snuggle up with your honey and enjoy hundreds of images from your special day. But the adventure doesn’t end here...

CREATE YOUR HEIRLOOMS

To ensure your images don’t sit forgotten on your computer, I’ll even help you create prints and albums! Whether the collection you’ve selected includes physical products or you’d like to add them at the last minute, I can’t wait to create the very first heirlooms for your brand new family to treasure for generations.

I believe that the very best wedding photography doesn’t just happen. It is slowly crafted through months of preparation, planning, and relationship building. This is why my approach to wedding photography is collaborative, relational, and intentional. As we work together to bring your vision to life, I can lighten the stressful load while also learning what photos you most want to see in your final gallery. Because above all, I believe that photography should be as unique to the couple as the lovers themselves. And that all begins with the creation of a custom photography collection.

HEIRLOOM PRINTS & ALBUMS

Showcase your beautiful images through art for your home and albums to treasure. Consider using canvases of your engagement photos as custom wedding decor, or creating an album to use as a guestbook. Then, when your wedding gallery arrives, I can help you design an album you’ll be enthusiastic to pass around on holidays for decades to come. Some collections include prints and albums, but you can add them onto any collection. 


A LA CARTE

As we customize your collection, we can add hours of photography coverage, additional portrait sessions, or albums. I look forward to sharing all the options with you during your consultation call!
