Of course your wedding images are so important, but so is the experience. I have been in the wedding industry for six years now and one thing I've learned along the way is how to make sure my couples know that I am 100% there for them. I definitely don't expect you to know all the in's and out's of planning a wedding and that's why I'm here to help you and answer any of the questions you have! I wear many hats as your wedding photographer....I'm a bow tie-tier, boutonniere pinner (well good enough anyway), dress fluffer, fly away hair tamer and of course your wedding day cheerleader. I'm ready to go on your adventure with you and make sure I listen to everything you want in your wedding day images. I'll always go the extra mile and provide you with nothing less than memories you'll cherish forever. It's not anything extra or fancy, it's just who I am and I believe all my couples deserve the best.
I know I say it all the time, but I'm so freaking excited that my career is my dream job! Sometimes I feel like a little kid in a candy shop just in awe that I get to do this for the rest of my life. I love this job because I get to connect with new people all the time and capture these once in a lifetime memories for them. You're here because you're recently engaged and ready to find the person who's going to capture those memories for you. But how do you know who to choose? I'm sure by now you've surfed the web and visited a handful of wedding photographers websites, but have you fallen in love with one yet? I'm guessing no and that's why you've landed on my page. Listen, I know I'm not the photographer for everyone. I'm loud, outgoing, I'm more hands on than most photographers and I'm ready to make sure your wedding day is everything you ever wanted it to be. My goal being your wedding photographer is that you feel safe and comfortable with me and that your expectations are not just met, but exceeded.

It's an honor to have my work featured on blogs and in print.
So much happens before we decide if we are a good fit to work together. After you send me details about you, your fiancé and all the wedding plans and dreams you have so far, we can set up a time to meet in person or talk on the phone - whatever is easiest for you! Once we start chatting (don't mind me if I start getting into the personal stuff like how many dogs you have and if I can come cuddle them!) we can talk about what's most important for you on your wedding day, your budget & so much more. Then I'll send you custom wedding options and you can choose which one best fits you for your wedding day.
Holy moly am I excited that we're going to work together and believe me when I say, I am SO excited to capture your wedding day. Let's celebrate with some champagne and save the date! I'll e-mail you a contract and invoice with the retainer fee information. As soon as I get the e-mail notification that you've done your part then you're officially locked in! That's super awesome!
Woot woot! Here comes the fun part!! Well....for most couples anyway. I can promise you though that you're going to have fun and it's definitely not as scary as you'd think. Engagement sessions are a great way for us to get to know each other better & allow you to be comfortable in front of the camera before your wedding day. Let's get your engagement session on the schedule as soon as possible! I'll talk you through outfit choices, location and then of course poses. I'm not going to let you down and you'll love these images!
Now that we're getting closer to the wedding day I'm going to send you some online questionnaires to help me better prepare for your wedding day. These questions will allow me to create you a custom timeline for your day that tells you (and everyone else who's bugging you about it) when exact photos will be and how long they will take. I'll also connect with your wedding coordinator and get some information from them so everything runs smooth on the wedding day!
We did it! We have finally reached the day you've been planning for months now! I'm so excited to see you and your fiancé and capture the wedding day just how you imagined it! I get to be your third wheel for the entire day and follow you around like paparazzi (just much less annoying.) The day will fly by so I'll make sure to capture all the important, big moments and of course the moments in between as well. Then I'll go home, load all the wedding images safely to my computer and back them up to a separate hard drive and start sending you lots of sneak peeks!!
Now that you have all your beautiful images let's talk about how you're going to display them! My absolute favorite way to display wedding images is creating a custom heirloom album. It's such a timeless way to preserve your images and a favorite by many of my past couples. The best part is you'll be able to create mini albums for parents, family & friends to have as well so they don't always steal your copy! We can begin to discuss your album as soon as the gallery is sent to you!
