It starts with a consultation—which is just a fancy way of saying we meet up to figure out if we go together like PB & J. You gush about your guy and your plans, and I get all lit up about it, too (because I just can’t help it!). I answer alllll the questions, and ask you some of my own. I already think of us as friends, and I’m starting to see how I can serve you both best. When you’re ready, we handle the contract, payment plan and have ourselves a little happy dance! Or hugs and high fives, I’m cool with that, too.
2. ENGAGEMENT SESSION
We always include the engagement session as a part of our Wedding Experience. We love this time with our couples! It’s a time for us to get to know each other and to get comfortable working with us by being in front of our camera in a stress free environment. By the time your wedding day arrives, we'll feel more like friends and that creates a safe and relaxed environment for photography! When our couples feel comfortable and relaxed in front of our camera, that results in genuine, joyful images! We’ll coach you through everything so there’s never an awkward what-do-I-do-with-my-hands moment.
3. TIMELINES AND DETAILS
Wedding planning can be stressful. I am here to be your partner in organization and make sure that we have thought of everything on your wedding day. I will work alongside you and your planner or coordinator to make sure we have a timeline that includes all of the must-have shots of romantic portraits, fun friend and family group photos, and pretty details. If you have any last minute questions or need a quick opinion, I am your girl!
4. YOUR WEDDING DAY
The day you’ve been dreaming of is finally here! It’s when all the planning and details come together as you celebrate the first day of your marriage with the most important people in your life. From beginning to end, my goal is to make your wedding experience as effortless and enjoyable as possible. We'll be there to capture all these precious moments just like you've dreamed to ensure you have memories to last a lifetime.
5. ALBUM DESIGN & GALLERY DELIVERY
About four weeks after your wedding day we will have your Reveal Party! We'll have a little wine and cheese and celebrate with you, and any friends and family, as we present your wedding photographs in a beautiful slideshow. Every couple receives a gorgeous, hand-crafted leather album with an acrylic cover, to showcase the photographs from their big day as part of their photography collection. We also offer archival quality gallery wrapped canvases and sleek folio boxes with hand mounted, artist signed, matted prints. All of our art pieces are crafted here in the U.S. and guaranteed to last for generations. Once we have designed and approved your artwork, delivery and installation is concluded within four to six weeks of ordering. You will receive your full gallery of images, the day after your Reveal Party, in a personalized online gallery. This is where you can download your high-resolution digital files, share, and print your favorite images. Your online gallery is securely stored online for 10 years so you don’t have to worry about losing your photos.
I’m committed to serving my clients with my whole heart! For that reason, I limit my bookings to 8-10 weddings per year so that each and every one of my couples gets my very best. My bet is that if you’ve made it this far, you’d be a GREAT fit, but just in case you need a little more, here’s a fun little litmus test.

You and your guy have some major heart eyes for each other and you’re playful besties, too.
