This is the start of a collaborative relationship. I’m dedicated to capturing lasting and artfully photographed moments rooted in genuine connection and feeling. I’ll work with you to guide you through the planning process in a way that leaves you feeling refreshed, and inspired.

I want to be the photographer you hire because you value photography. Because you want emotion-filled, genuine photos that your future selves look back on. These are more than just photos; they are heirlooms.

Come as you are -- I want to see the playful, the quiet, the romance. Embrace every single moment and tune out the rest. There is beauty in your story and I am forever grateful to be the photographer privileged to document that.

Here's how the photography booking process goes. (Trust's super easy!)

01 | get in touch

Whether you have questions or you're ready to book your date, fill out this contact form. Typical response time is 24 hours or less.

02 | meet & greet

We'll set up a super casual video call to connect. We'll get to know each other, go over your wedding plans so far, discuss your vision for your photography.

After this consult, if we're a good fit, I will send over a contract. A non-refundable deposit is due at the time of booking to secure your wedding date.

03 | engagement photos

Engagement photos are one of the first mile markers in your wedding planning journey. This fun, low-stress photo session is like going on a date, except you have someone snapping bomb pictures of your interaction; laughing, kissing, eating pizza, wrestling or whatever it is that you like to do. It's also a great way to capture save-the-date and wedding-website content in the process.

Engagement sessions are 1.5-2 hours long and include 2-3 outfit changes.

04 | timeline creation & review

I'm here to help! Planning a wedding is stressful enough without having to worry about creating a timeline. As part of the wedding photography experience with me, I offer my couples a complimentary, custom curated wedding day photography timeline. Prior to your big day, we will finalize the timeline and share it with the vendor team to ensure that your day runs smoothly.

I have worked with many vendors, so if you need recommendations, let me know.

05 | the wedding day

This is the part where you relax and enjoy the day. Trust your vendors, including myself, to do our jobs. We will work together as a team to make sure your day runs smoothly.

I will engage with you, your family and friends to capture your most precious, intimate moments together. I use a mix of both candid and minimally guided photos to tell the complete story of your day.

06 | gallery delivery

All wedding packages include an online gallery with a download pin to share with friends and family, and an online store to order heirloom quality prints and products.

Turnaround time: 2-4 weeks, depending on the season

What sets me apart?

  • I desire to cultivate a genuine connection with each couple I work with. 
  • This is far more than a job for me. I want you to feel entirely cared for throughout our time together. 
  • On the wedding day, I intentionally get to know your friends and family, so that I'm able to capture genuine moments of your favorite people.
  • My decade of experience helps me navigate the unexpected on a wedding day.
