My Approach

The best compliment I can receive from a couple is that they didn't feel their wedding day turned into a photo shoot, rather that I captured it as the day went on and when I had to direct posing, I did it in a way that allowed them to be authentic with their affection and show them within the scenery they so carefully chose.

I stay very hands off during the first portion of the day during getting ready. I focus on taking candid photos of interactions between your family members and you as well as details of what you're wearing and any other keepsake you have. Once the ceremony ends, we'll do all of the formal photos and then I'll jump back in to directing the groups and prompting some awesome poses! 

It's very important that you feel comfortable with me, so I give you space to do your own thing and I'll fine tune your pose if it needs it. Authentic moments captured as you're being yourselves always give you natural photos that you'll be proud of! If you feel totally awkward, then I'll take over 100% and pose you so that you look relaxed and like yourselves as is reflected in the majority of my work.

My goal at every wedding is to deliver a story that is unique to you and not styled based off the latest magazine or trend. If that's something that resonates with you, we'll be a perfect fit. You can see examples below that aren't cookie cutter. Some have more portraits, some have more details. It all depends on what the both of you want more of :)


What's Included

You get all the edited files in high resolution JPEG format. Easily downloadable with no watermarks via a custom online gallery with personal printing rights so you can do whatever you want with them. Take a look at some of the full galleries below so you have any idea of what that looks like.

The set packages vary in coverage time and if they include an engagement session and/or second photographer. After I have some basic information about your wedding, we can figure out which package works best for you and if we need to add anything else to it so that it's tailored to your needs.

The Booking Process

After we've chatted over the phone or in person about which package works best for your wedding, I'll send you a formal proposal with the contract and payment information via a custom online portal. A $500 deposit is required to save your date and the remainder is paid 30 days prior to your wedding date through PayPal or check.

I do have a policy of booking with whoever first submits their contract and pays the retainer for an inquired date. So being proactive about booking is key to make sure you have your date saved.

Things to Know

  • The Portrait Sessions can be an Engagement sessions prior to the wedding, post wedding portraits, trash the dress session or bridal portraits. All super fun and highly recommended! :)
  • Travel is included for most weddings within my 3 hour driving radius. For weddings more than 3 hours from my location, hotel and transportation costs are covered by the couple on top of the package costs.
  • If none of the packages work for your particular wedding, let me know and we can create a custom proposal that does. 
  • My overtime rate is $250 an hour and is billed after the wedding day.
  • Additional photographers can be added to any package for $100 per hour, three hour minimum.
  • Heirloom albums begin at $600 for a 10x10 with 26 pages. You can see those here.
