the wedding experience

Your wedding day is one of the most fun, most memorable, and most exciting days of your life! It brings me SO much joy to be a part of something so incredible, and to commemorate every little detail — from the tiniest gifts exchanged, to the hugs before you walk down the aisle, to your faces as you dance in front of your loved ones.

I love using natural light and simple posing to create romantic images. It’s so important to me to reflect the joy you’re feeling, and to help you remember that joy as you look at your wedding photos for decades to come.

I'm a planner at heart.
A few years ago when I left corporate America, I was initially offered an event planning position with a big wedding venue management company. My first love is, and always was, Excel (*nerd alert... I know*), and part of my process is to help brides plan out their day in a way that fits your specific needs and desires, but also runs like a well-oiled machine. When timelines are running tight on the day-of, it’s usually up to the photographer to adjust and make up some space, and I care so much about being flexible, positive, and efficient in order to make it as easy breezy for you as possible!

Marriage is important to me.
I’ve been married to my best friend for almost four years, and I’ve attended and photographed more weddings than I can count, but a good ceremony still always brings me to tears with ease. I really care about the love being represented on a wedding day, and don’t think it’s possible for it to be over-celebrated. It’s no small thing to be trusted with documenting something so monumental in your and your families’ lives— it’s something that I don’t ever take lightly, but with so much carefulness and joy!

You can know what to expect.
I’m comfortable and confident in who I am as a photographer, and I know how to achieve my style. You can trust that in every circumstance, I’m constantly evaluating how to best capture the emotion of your wedding day, and simultaneously focusing on creating a well-rounded gallery that thoroughly documents the day’s atmosphere — and all in the pretty natural light and soft colors that you can see across my portfolio. My goal in shooting and editing is to create images that are true to life and will stand the test of time as trends evolve and tastes change.

It’s not about me - it’s about you & your people.
You’ll never catch me with a “me” attitude or a short word on a wedding day. You’ll spend more time with me than you will with almost anyone else on the big day, so I always take it upon myself to be an honorary cheerleader and bridesmaid, too! And more times than not, the thing that my couples say is one of the things they’re most excited about for the wedding day is just “being with their people.” I not only want to tirelessly serve you and your future hubbs/wife, but also your mom, your sister, and your best friend, who have all given blood, sweat, and tears to pull off this shindig!

the process

First, I’d love to have a consultation before booking to answer any questions you may have, and talk about your plans for the big day! That’s also a great opportunity for us to get to know each other, and for you to see some sample wedding alums.

If you decide to move forward with us, I’ll send you a contract to sign and an invoice for your deposit — and then you’ll be all booked!

A few months before the wedding, I’ll send you a detailed questionnaire to fill out, and then I’ll use those answers to send you a proposed day-of timeline. The purpose of the timeline is just to let you know how long it usually takes to do different sets of photos, and to show you what the day would look like if planned around the best lighting.

And finally, I love having the chance to meet with brides for coffee the month of the wedding to go over all the final details. This helps so much in making things run smoothly on the day of!
