Your wedding is one of the most emotional experiences in your life. You're marrying your best friend and everyone who loves you will be there. A surreal experience, rich with relationships ~ on your wedding day, surround yourself with people who will make you smile. Romantic, sincere, fun, and honest - your big moments, the little things no one but I might notice, and everyone's spontaneous expressions of joy will become the images that you bring you back to that day forever.
Your time with your photographer should be as fun as the wedding itself. When you become my client, you become my friend and I’ll care about you & your day like you family. I’ll partner with you to make sure I understand every meaningful aspect that the camera could capture - The details you are most excited about, your relationships with the guests, and all little things you don’t want to miss. As a wife, a mother, a daughter and one who has lost loved ones young - I truly have a sense of what your hearts will crave look back on years from now. As a former event planner, project manager, speech therapist and strengths coach, I am both both easy going and diligent schedule keeper; I will be professionally discreet and sweetly engaging, making you and your guests laugh and feel comfortable while ensuring I get the shot. When the day is over, I’ll work just as hard to turn the expressions of your day into an emotional journey you can relish for the rest of your lives.

WHAT YOU GET ...
PERSONALIZED, PROFESSIONAL TIME
In order for me to be the best partner for you, I need to know who you are, have a strong command of your schedule & venue, and understand the relationships of the people I will capture you with. On average, a 10 hour wedding, with an engagement shoot involves about 30 or more hours of my time dedicated completely to you.
GETTING TO KNOW YOU
A 1 - 1.5 hour Meet & Greet that ends with a commitment from me to care about your wedding day as if it were my own, and then usually, a hug.
About 2-3 months before the wedding, we will meet for a 1.5 - 2 hours detailed in-person, Pre-Wedding timeline planning and walk-through. We will go hour by hour, plotting the best timing of your events, discuss VIP friends & family, review your seating chart so I know who is sitting at each table, outline photography priorities and think through final logistics to make sure we have enough time to accomplish what you want - lunch is always on me!
SELFLESS & CARING DEDICATION
Dynamic and poignant capture of your wedding day - the candid moments, the most important moments, the important people in your life, and beautiful portraits of the two of you. Emotionally intuitive, socially savvy, friendly, fun photography. Your wedding day is all about you and your guests, never about me, and I am dedicated to capture everything you will crave to remember.
I'll be your Schedule Keeper, People Wrangler, Dress Fixer, and Water Getter. I know that I am the eyes on the parts of your day that you can't see on your own. I will be both "Stealthy Ninja Fly on the Wall" and "Charming Take Charge Wedding Photographer" with your guests. I take charge and get it done swiftly, I cajole shy guests into showing you their joy, and I am ready to get dirty for you.
Up to 2 professional hours of travel and on-site time to visit the venue, meeting with your onsite coordinator and test lighting if necessary & reasonable
On average, 15 - 20 hours of my time in the editing room to ensure every single picture, carefully hand edited and stunningly enhanced. My weddings result in about 85 awesome images per hour
