I have a love for authentic, timeless, light-filled imagery that tells each couple and families unique story. My bright and vibrant images speak to all adventure loving, fun and even quirky couples + families. I believe in capturing fleeting moments and preserving them through heirloom quality prints, canvases, and albums so that you can cherish them for a lifetime!

Let's chat! I thrive on personal connections and building relationships with my clients. We can chat however you are the most comfortable; on the phone, in person or via e-mail, to see if we're a great fit. No two weddings, engagements or family sessions are alike, so I want to make sure that I am the perfect fit as your photographer from the very beginning. I want your experience to be as unforgettable as the artwork you receive. After all, once you hang them on your walls, you'll be looking at them for a lifetime.
Send me an email and let's get this adventure started!
1. Say Hello
2. Planning your portraits
Once we confirm the date, receive your retainer and signed contract, we will begin the planning phase. Here I will walk you through my process, provide you with a style guide, and send out my client welcome guide to you which is full of handy tips and even some preferred vendors I've met along the way.
Communication is key and I'm here, even if you think you have a small insignificant question, trust me I've heard just about everything, please send me an email.
Have questions on what to wear?
Need to see if the outfits for your family session are coordinating?
Want to try and find a Hair & MUA?
3. ask me Anything
The day of your session or wedding arrives.
For engagement or family sessions you will have a blast. We will go through some ice breakers and get you comfortable in front of the camera. I have some fun prompts and some amazing styled poses that we will have discussed during our planning stage. By the time we're done, we'll feel like old friends laughing about the college days and how we just couldn't wait to be in the corporate world. Boy were we wrong right?!
Weddings: It's your wedding, let me take care of you, I'm not just your photographer. I play a very active role in making sure your day goes as smoothly as possible so that you can relax and enjoy the day you've dreamed about your entire life.
I will be there to grab you a water, make sure your dress is fixed, your veil is falling perfectly and to even help your Grandmother find the restroom.
I will be your calm support and comfort through the day and to remind you to relax, breathe and take in this day. It will be over before you know it!
4. Let's Shoot!
For session, photos will be ready in 2-3 weeks. We will schedule your reveal date at the end of your photo session. If you've opted for heirloom products, this will be the time that we design those products together.
1-2 weeks after your wedding, be on the look out for a sneak peek on Instagram + Facebook.
6-8 weeks after your wedding, we will schedule a Reveal date where we will view all your finalized images together and I will take you through using your online gallery and sharing it with friends and family. In addition, we will design your heirloom products, such as your wedding album or wall art, so that you can have them in your home and cherish them forever.
