The Wedding experience

Let’s Tell Your Love Story Together

I want nothing more than our time together to be all about you, and your story. When it comes down to it, my enneagram 3 gives way to the 2, and I’m driven to help others! I’m all in during our time together; I don’t want to just show up with a camera and "shoot". I want your experience to be sooo much more than that.

It's about you. Your story, your love.

real talk:

I focus on making my couples confident and comfortable in front of the camera long before the wedding day. 

I spend time getting to know you, learning about what's really important to you on your wedding day. I provide resources along the way, including a 50+ page wedding guide so you have everything you need to feel good about building your wedding day. And then, last but certainly not least, I get you in front of the camera for your engagement session and you get to feel what it's like to have me as your third wheel! ;)

Seriously, let's do this thing – beautifully and fiercely.

How It Works


Are you ready to have me as your third wheel!? But seriously, let's keep the convo flowing by telling me how you met, and what's most important for me to capture on your wedding day.


We confirm all of your details and which collection is the best fit. Then we secure your date with a 50% deposit. Next we get your engagement session on the books!
(celebrate, we're doing this!)

And Then

It's your wedding day! (we laugh, we cry, we have a blast)
Then I edit and get your gorgeous gallery over to you and start working on your keepsake!

The Experience

What it really looks like to work together


Once we're official (happy dance!) You'll get my Wedding Guide packed full of goodies to help you prepare for everything.


Now we get you comfy in front of the camera during your engagement session. That's why it's included in each collection!


We stay connected via email and calls. I share more tips and tricks. I'll build your timeline during this time.


Wedding Day! It's time to celebrate, relax, and enjoy the day knowing I've got this. <3


I get to editing! You'll receive your online gallery and sit down with your fav beverage, and relive all of those emotions. This is when you'll mark favorites for me to custom design your keepsake album.

(you'll get your sneak peeks shortly)


Engagement Session

What Makes Me Different

When I say I am the sincerest storyteller - I mean it.
Yes, you hire me to be there on your wedding day to capture photos. But the experience my couples get is so much more. I'm going to ask you how you are, for real, not just the same everyday question. I'm going to care about grandma's broach on your bouquet the way your family does. I'm going to be attentive the moments you indicate are important to you. We're not going to rush and stress to keep a timeline, I'll manage that so you don't need to. I'm going to cry during your parent dances (they get me every time). The point is, I'm not just the photographer – I'm your advocate, your friend.

Let your day be joyful and easy.
