First things first, let's make sure myself (or my associate team!) is available for your date. If so, YAY - we are off to an amazing start! I will send over a wedding guide with detailed pricing information + would love to set up a time to chat, get to know you both and hear about your day.
Your date is officially secured on my calendar with a signed contract and retainer payment. This is all done through my online booking platform & is a very smooth and simple process! The retainer payment is deducted from your final balance and I accept debit & card card with no additional fees.
Once we get your date locked in, we schedule your engagement session! One of my favorite parts of this process! The sky is the limit & we will dream up the perfect location and vibe for your session. I'm here to help with everything.
A few months before your wedding date, you will receive a questionnaire. From there, I will help build a timeline for your day - and we will schedule a time to chat through details and tailor everything to your needs. You will not have to navigate this process blindly - I will help you know exactly what you need to have a smooth & incredible wedding day.
It's here!! This is the day you've been planning for quite a while - and it's time to celebrate! Leave all the details & logistics to me - I will have your back all day long and help guide you, your bridal party, and families throughout the entire day. I'm a built in bridesmaid, part coordinator, & photographer all in one. I'm here to serve you & celebrate the heck out of your marriage!
You will receive sneak peeks within 24-48 after your day and a full gallery on time in 6-8 weeks. What you didn't realize is that you're stuck with me always after this! But truly, staying in touch & oftentimes having the joy of documenting my couples' as their families grow is maybe one of the best parts of my job. We might start this process as strangers, but my couples become dear friends, and I wouldn't want it any other way.
Pricing begins at $4950 and average wedding investment is between $6000-8000.

Engagement sessions are an absolute blast and truly a favorite part of my job. Being engaged is such a uniquely special season & I want to help you document all the goodness.
Engagement sessions include multiple locations & outfits, and an online gallery of high resolution images to print, share & download to your heart's content!
I sit down with every single one of my couples and create a game plan for your coverage and timeline. We will talk through all the fun nitty gritty details!! A good rule of thumb is that if your wedding is all at one venue, 8 hours is perfect. For multiple venues with drive time, I recommend 10 hours of coverage.
I have an incredible line-up of second shooters that photograph weddings with me! As your wedding date gets closer, I can let you know specifically who they will be.
Engagement sessions are included in my traditional wedding collections. I've found that engagement sessions are essential to the experience as a whole! Not only does it allow us a chance to connect, but it also gives you the opportunity to get comfortable in front of the camera. Oftentimes this is one of my favorite parts of the experience!
Listen, I get it! I'm a photographer and can feel awkward in front of the camera!! You are so not alone, and almost all of my couples say this to me. I will help pose and guide you two through every step. My goal is for you to not only feel beautiful but feel like yourself! I promise that there is no possible way for you to mess this up - I've got you.
Heck yes, I absolutely love to travel! Let me know where your wedding will be located when you reach out, and we can chat about what travel costs would look like! Typically this will include a plane ticket (if necessary), rental car, and lodging.
Your wedding photos will be ready to download, print & share within 6-8 weeks of your wedding day. But don't you worry - you will absolutely see sneak peeks before the full gallery releases, typically the day or two after your wedding.
