Your wedding is a unique reflection of you. My goal is to connect in such a way that you will feel like a close friend is taking your photos. I aim to make my clients feel comfortable, for when that happens it's then and only then that we can obtain those genuine images that express the essence of you. 
I will walk you through every step of the way and guide you to obtain images that you will absolutely love and cherish for years to come.
Those fleeting moments-intimate, surprising, and joyous, captured creatively are the timeless heirlooms that will bring you back to the essence of your wedding day.

My Philosophy

Your wedding day is one of the most important days in your life. From the proposal to the moment you say "I do." All of the planning and details that go into your wedding are done from the heart and with so much love. To me, it is essential to capture it all as it ties the whole story in such a beautiful way. 

At the end of the day, when the last bite of cake is eaten, the flowers are dried, and the dress is preserved, images are all you will have left to remember your magical day. It goes by in the blink of an eye. My goal is that you will be able to go back and relive your day over and over, remembering all of the intricate details; from the carefully chosen and crafted invitations, to the jewelry, to the scent you wore on the day, to the beautiful dress, veil and shoes you chose, to all of the magical moments in between that made you laugh and cry. I want you to remember it all through beautiful images that tell your love story and all of the details that made it perfect so that you will be able to pass down those memories to future generations.

The magical process

So, you've landed on my site and you like what you see. What's next? Great question!
Send me an email, and let's get coffee! 
I like to meet with potential clients for coffee or tea, or whatever they fancy to discuss all of the exciting details and to make sure we're a good fit for each other. I go over my process, how I prepare for the big day and answer any and all questions that I'm sure are buzzing in your head. 
If you feel that we're a match made in haven, I'll send you  booking documents and an invoice to get you on my calendar!

Hey friend,

Next comes the fun part...or at least one of the fun parts, your engagement session.
We pick a date that works for us both and we discuss your vision and what you have in mind. If you don't have a clue, don't fear--I'm here to help! I will send you my ultimate engagement prep guide with tips that will help you plan the perfect session leaving you and your fiancee feeling like models and even more excited for the big day.
I understand that there are reservations about how the session will go, but don't worry through a fun and effortless process, we'll get images that feel unique and convey who you are as a couple!
I am here every step of the way to make this as fun and effortless as possible!

Engagement Session 


We'll work together to plan the timeline and ensure every detail is documented perfectly! From the timeline to the portrait family  photo list, I will work with you and your coordinator if you have one to ensure that the wedding day is smooth and relaxing as possible. 
I will work  on your wedding day timeline and run it by you to make sure everything looks perfect. I'll stay in touch and send the finalized timeline one week prior to your wedding as well as  a list of reminders of details to have ready for me when I arrive on the big day. I'll walk you through the process to make sure no question is left unanswered. 

Planning for the big day!


Your big day is finally here! 
I will show up ready and pumped with my timeline (approved by you, of course)  to  begin documenting every beautiful detail. I along with my second photographer will be ready to step in at any moment that is needed beyond the call of duty and will be there through out the process making this as fun and relaxing for you as possible.

My goal is for you to sit back and enjoy your day. Let the pros handle  the details while you soak it all in and live in the moment!  

wedding day!

the packages

A wonderful place...where you get to see all of the best images from your event organized in an ever so wonderfully categorized fashion for easy reference. You will have access to the gallery and make as many downloads as needed. Friends and family will be welcome to make downloads as well if you choose.


It really depends on what changes we're talking about.  Changes can be reviewed on a case by case basis


Absolutely!  During an engagement session, several magical things happen! 1. You get the chance to get comfortable with posing and getting your photos taken (think of it as a rehearsal for your wedding day). 
 2. We get to know each other and this often leads to great rapport and beautiful natural images because you will feel comfortable 
3.  You and your fiancee will get to spend time together, making fun memories while your love gets captured!  Who wouldn't want all of that?

is an engagement session necessary? 

The simple answer is yes.  I have found through trial and error and past experiences that I can't offer my couples the best experience in under 8 hours. To really tell the whole story and documents every important aspect of your wedding day that ties everything together in under 8 hours is doing a great disservice to you as it will leave out so many beautiful details of your wedding day.

Is 8 hours really necessary?

As soon as you're ready to move forward and secure your date with me! I do book up to a year in advance. Photography is one of the first things couples will book, so definitely do this as soon as possible to ensure I will have your date available
