When you think of your wedding day, what immediately comes to mind?
Do you imagine your family and friends laughing, dancing and having a great time? Do you want to focus on how amazing it feels to marry your person instead of worrying about everything being perfect? If so, it would be an honor to work with you and capture the details and candid moments that become the best memories of a momentous occasion.
When you hire me, you get so much more than a day-of photographer. You’ll have as much or as little support as you need from me. Some brides want help with vendor selection and timeline planning while others already have a specific flow in mind. Even if you just need someone to grab you a cocktail and let you vent — I’m here for all of it!
What is included in your wedding package?
I offer a variety of packages to meet your specific needs. My packages start with coverage that begins when you are getting ready until 1 hour after the opening dancing. You’ll receive at least 400 edited digital files conveniently shared in an online gallery, along with a print release. If you are looking for a more intimate event that requires under 6 hours of time, let’s talk and I will customize a package that fits your day!
How do I book my wedding date?
I want to make the reservation process as stress free as possible! Start by clicking completing this inquiry form (link to form). You'll receive a response from me within 12-24 hours Monday - Friday. After we check to make sure your wedding date is available, I like to meet my brides. virtually or face to face over coffee or wine. The importance of meeting before any contract is signed ensures we’ll be a good fit for each other. If we are both like, “Yes! Let’s do this thing!” then the final step will be a signed contract and the $500 non-refundable retainer fee to secure your date and services.
What is included in our pre-wedding consultation?
Depending on what you already have covered, the topics of our consultation will vary. Generally, I’m available to help with vendor recommendations (as long as we’re earlier on in the planning process. So if you need guidance on florists, DJ’s, hair and makeup artists...you name it, I can help. I’ve also done venue visits with clients to walk through timeline and photo settings. We’ll also touch base in the final weeks leading up to your wedding day. to go over your wedding timeline in detail, answering questions you have and reviewing insider tips to help your wedding day go smoothly. Some brides want to text and email to stay connected while others prefer to talk on the phone or meet 1 to 2 times in person. I’m flexible!
How long is the turnaround time for our wedding gallery?
The full gallery will be shared within 4-6 weeks from your wedding day. However, I know how excited you are to see the photos and I am just as excited to start sharing them! So I always share a handful of photos within the first 2-3 days after your wedding. You won’t have to wait long to get a glimpse of your gorgeous and memorable day.
Do we need a 2nd photographer for our wedding?
Honestly, this depends on several things.
Will you and your fiance be getting ready in completely separate locations that will make it nearly impossible for one person to cover? Then, yes, you should include a 2nd photographer.
Do you have over 200 guests coming and want to have every single angle covered during your ceremony and reception? Again, yes, you’ll want a 2nd photographer.
However, when working solo, I’m still able to capture SO much of the ceremony and special moments.For example, if you choose to wait to see each other until you walk down the aisle, I can make sure to capture the look on your fiance’s face AND of you walking down the aisle. I’m experienced with managing larger bridal parties by myself as well. Ultimately, I think it comes down to where you’re getting ready. Otherwise, a single experienced photographer can cover most everything else.
Do you recommend doing an engagement session?
Yes, absolutely, 100% recommend this. An engagement session also gives us a chance to get to know each other more before heading into the wedding planning frenzy. You can get a feel for my style of shooting and hopefully find some comfort in front of the camera. Engagement sessions are tailored to each couple... we can hang out at a park, go to an outdoor patio, have some drinks... you get the idea. Engagement sessions are meant to be fun and you’ll love having the photos, too!
