the wedding experience

Wedding days can be hectic, but I believe that by careful planning, many stressful moments can be avoided. That is why I will walk you through the entire process - from answering all your questions during our consultation meeting, providing you tips on how to prepare for the wedding day to helping with vendor recommendations. On the wedding day you'll likely find me fluffing dresses and fetching water. After the wedding, I am happy to help you place an order for your Heirloom Album that will be cherished by generations to come!

When choosing the right wedding photographer, it is about more than just finding a person with a fancy camera to take some pictures. Wedding photography is about serving people and thoughtfully and purposefully capturing the moments of the day that genuinely tell your love story. When I'm chosen as a couple's wedding photographer, I am truly honored because it means that they are choosing to remember the day through my lens. I will work tirelessly to capture every minute detail and big moment - and all the hugs, tears and laughs in-between. 

MY WORK

Do you have a special place in mind for a location? Great, I'll meet you there! If not, I'm happy to help you choose the location for your engagement session!

The day is finally here and you get to marry the love of your life!! It is time for you to relax and enjoy visiting with family and friends while I get to work! I will be there from the beginning to the end, capturing a combination of formal portraits and documentary style images that will authentically tell the story of your day. Watch for sneak peeks on my Instagram and Facebook page in the following days. 

WEDDING DAY

06.

As you plan your wedding, I am available to answer any questions you may have. Eight weeks prior to your wedding I will send out a very detailed questionnaire. This information will help me prepare for the day so that you will receive the images you absolutely love! I will help you to plan the timeline for the wedding day. This planning will ensure the big day is as stress-free as possible! 

PLANNING

05.

BEGINS AT $2600

Full wedding day collections include a complimentary engagement session, wedding day coverage, a second photographer, high-resolution digital images delivered via an online gallery, and a print release. Customized packages are available for elopements and small intimate weddings. 

Investment Details

Full gallery will be ready within 4 to 6 weeks following the wedding. Engagement photos will be ready in about 14 days. 

Question 8: How long will it take for us to receive our gallery?

An online gallery of the edited images is made available to you for one year where you can easily share and download full-resolution files! Print release is included in all collections.

Question 7: How are the FINAL images delivered?

Yes, absolutely and I'm happy to provide a copy of the liability insurance! I am both licensed and insured!

Question 6: My venue requires vendors to have liability insurance. Is this something you carry?

I do not and here's why. RAW images are unedited files and a special photo editing program is required to process the files. You deserve a beautifully curated gallery of professionally edited images and RAW images do not meet the standard. 

Question 3: Do you provide the RAW images?

I average 50-100 images per hour. The number depends on the details and events of your wedding day! My main goal is to tell the entire story of the day!

Question 2 : How many images will we receive?

While I specialize in weddings, I photograph a limited number of senior and family sessions each year. If you are interested in a portrait session with me, don't hesitate to send me a note! Also, seasonal mini-sessions are offered twice a year! 

Question 1: Do you only shoot weddings?


Frequently Asked Questions

Question 4: Who is your second shooter?

All of my second shooters are fellow professional wedding photographers. Who will join me on your wedding day varies according to who is available that day, but I am fortunate to have an extensive network of fellow photographers in the area!

Question 5: What happens if you get the flu or get into an accident and can't photograph our wedding?

First, thankfully this situation is extremely rare and would require extenuating circumstances. But, if I'm unable to photograph your wedding, my second photographer would take over as the lead. Rest assured your wedding would be photographed by a professional wedding photographer with a style similar to mine! 

Question 9: Do you offer albums?

I'm thrilled to say yes! I offer heirloom quality linen and leather Legacy Albums. While digital images are wonderful and serve their purpose, a printed keepsake that tells the story of your wedding day is priceless! 

Question 10: How do we make it official?

Booking is easy and it can all completed online! A signed contract and a $800 non-refundable deposit is required to book your date.
