breathtaking • moments • captured
When you hire me as your photographer, you're getting more than someone who just shows up, takes photos and leaves. I will be with you every step of the way including your timeline and any other advice or tips you want! I will capture your love story for you to look at for years to come. My approach is guided posing with movement. So we'll get those formal poses and also the candid and genuine smile photos.
Being an enneagram 2, "the helper", my personality loves to help in anyway that I can. I'm not just there to capture your day, i'm there to run around to find items or people, grab my sewing kit out of my bag, ect. my favorite phrase to say is "what do YOU need" and figure out the best way to go about it.
Capturing Gods love within the details of your marriage, no matter who you are or what your love story is.
Ready to do this thing?! Say hello and tell me a bit about yourselves, I'll see if I have your date available and if we are a good fit.
If we are, then we will then find what custom coverage is best to fit your needs and create a package for you. Dates are first come first served, so inquiry now! I only have a handful of dates still available.
1. Say Hello
2. Engagement Session
You have the option to add on an engagement session to your package, this way we can meet up and shoot!
This is an amazing way for us to meet, get to know one another and get you some bomb photos to send out on your save the date cards! pro tip: You can also plan your trial makeup and hair on the same day we shoot.

During the entire process I am only a click or call away. I will work with you to create a custom timeline, give you advice on color palettes, makeup, or anything!

4. WEdding day!
Let’s Party!! Wedding day rolls around and it’s for the butterflies in your stomach and the after party. All the planning will be done waaaay beforehand so we can have a great time!
5. your photographs
I am the least patient person in the world. Because of this I give my couples 3-5 sneak peak images the day after their shoots. The full gallery for weddings will be done 5-8 weeks depending on the season, and engagement sessions will be given back 2-3 weeks after (and also get sneak peaks!)
You have the option to get a custom USB with your images on it mailed to you, or you can download the gallery I give you to your personal computer. You will get a photo release with your gallery, you are able to post, share, and print the images.
Collections start at $2,600 FOR 6 HOURS

That was the most amazing thing I have ever watched! You made Ahmed cry, it was so beautiful. Thank you so much for the time and effort you put into making this. It could have taken you a year to put together and it would have been well worth the wait, so I appreciate you getting it back to me so soon! I have no words, it was absolutely perfect.
