will be as involved as you want me to be and be your shoulder to lean on. That means offering you tips and tricks I've accumulated over all the past weddings I've done, giving you my expertise on how to craft the perfect  timeline, giving you guidance on how to pose for candid photographs that truly reflect you and your partner, EVERYTHING. I want you to feel like investing in me is like investing in a new friend who will extend themselves FOR you through all the tears of joy. 

My approach whenever I take on a couple is making sure that their experience is a fun one. The idea of getting married is a blissful dream, and I want to make sure that it happens exactly like they dreamed it would be! Because it doesn't have to be the stressful experience that many ex-brides warn others of. As your photographer, I'm not only capturing photos of your big day, I'm also going to make sure the every step of the process goes by smoothly - meaning I 

Let me walk you through my process.

Let's chat! I want to get to know you two and make sure we're a great fit for each other. Fill out the inquiry form at the bottom of this page, tell me more about you and your partner, such as how you both met, what your favorite dates are, etc. Then we can set up a zoom/phone call and get to know each other more as well as talk more details about your special day and what wedding packages would work best for you. Here I can also help draft your timeline if you're still in the starting stages of your wedding planning.

step 1

the process

If you're all on board to book, amazing! I'll send over a proposal that'll have a contract for you to sign and an invoice for you to make your payment. If you're still feeling iffy or have anymore questions, reach out and I'll lay out all the answers for you!

step 2

the process

Sign the contract and then pay the non-refundable deposit (30% for weddings, 50% for engagement sessions). Once that's done, our session date will be secured, and we can get the ball rolling! I will send out all the PDF guides that are included in my wedding packages (Engagement session prep guide, Location recommendations list, Wedding Day/Planning Do's & Don'ts).

step 3

the process

EYYY now we're all ready to go! We're going to schedule your engagement session right away so you two can get your photos for your Save The Date asap - and we'll finally meet too! It'll also be a great way for you and your partner to have practice in front of the camera, so killing two birds with one stone! Don't even sweat over this photo shoot because I'll make sure you two will feel like this engagement session is just one big fun date and I just happen to be third-wheeling y'all, haha.

step 4

the process

Once we've done your engagement session, I will stick with you throughout your wedding journey and be as involved as you'd like me to be! I can be your go-to if you need advice on crafting your timeline and you don't know where to start, if you want tips if certain plans end up changing, etc. Shortly before your wedding day, I'll email you a questionnaire for you to fill out on your wedding day details, and we'll schedule another few calls to go over everything so that your special day is as easy-breezy (or chaotically exciting) as possible and make the vision in your head come to life as beautifully as you imagined. We're in this together.

What I photograph on a wedding day

This is a default timeline of how a traditional wedding goes for most couples, but of course, not all weddings are made the same, so this list is not exclusive and is merely to show examples of photos I've taken for each special moment of the big day!

details

Gimme alllll the pretty details! I spend about 15-20 minutes capturing all the details for you. This includes the dress, bouquet, shoes, suits, invitation suite, marriage bands, everything! Whatever you have, I will capture.

Getting ready

I LOVE capturing the getting ready moments between you and your partner. All the excitement that comes right before the ceremony is contagious, especially if you have a bomb gang of besties to hype you up right until the moment you've been planning for ever since getting engaged. I'll capture some group shots during this time, your loved ones helping each other get dressed and jeweled up, etc.

First looks

First looks, either with your partner, family member, or bridal party, are incredibly precious moments of your day. If you want to opt for a traditional seeing-each-other-the-first-time-walking-down-the-aisle, then a first touch is another wonderful alternative. ESPECIALLY if you also choose to read your private vows together.

ceremony

Ahhhh, the moment we've all been waiting for!!! During this part of your special day, I will be sure to capture all the angles. You walking down the aisle, your partner when they see you for the first time, reactions of everyone around you, the vow/ring exchange, the first kiss, and the celebratory walk back down the aisle as newlyweds.

group photos

Alright! Now that the big event has passed, we'll move onto group portraits! I will first do family group photos so that they can enjoy themselves during cocktail hour right after, and then move onto bridal party group photos!

portraits

Now the extra fun part! As freshly newlyweds, we finally get to capture the beauty of a new chapter together (is that too cheesy?) I'll give you both some time to quickly refresh after all those group photos (because I'm sure your smiling muscles will start to get achy) before jumping straight into these private portraits between you and your partner. This moment of the day is for sure one of my favorites, as it's a perfect encapsulation of you two as one.

Reception

Woo! Now we finally get to the partying! I'll capture your grand entrance, the first dance, parent dances, cake cutting, bouquet/garter toss, games, whatever you two have planned! And as the dance floor opens up, I'll just blend into the background to catch the great moments of laughter and goofs you have throughout the night (while getting my head bonked by a million elbows on the dance floor haha).

grand exit

The end of the night has finally come... if you've got an epic grand exit planned, now's the time to close out the night with all your loved ones giving you a great, celebratory goodbye.

Photos aren't only proof that those moments happened, but they're also memories with emotional ties that we get to hold onto forever. It's a reason why I tell all my couples that their photos deserve to be printed out into canvasses, prints, and albums so that way those memories are tangible and able to be placed in a loving space within your home - not stuck behind a digital screen - and also within the hands of loved ones you pass it down to. 

Why photos should matter to you too.
