Wedding Experience

in a sea of wedding photographers, how are you ever supposed to choose?

what i can do for you here is communicate what i'm like on wedding day, and if you like the sound of it then that's a great start!

continue

When I began thinking about what couples need on their wedding day, it became clear that my approach should be as a friend. It's so important that you find a photographer (and other vendors too!) that make you feel comfortable and at ease. I'm the only person who isn't a friend/family member who will be with you throughout the entire day! I've helped zip up a dress that wouldn't zip, pour drinks, rehearse vows, and ease nerves. I'm basically a bridesmaid with a camera.

It is my goal to bring always bring calm, smiles, and good vibes with me.

My approach to weddings is about 90% documentary.  The real moments between people is where it's at for me. My focus is primarily on candids, but there's something to be said about formal family photos and a few shots of just you two in some gorgeous light.

Above all, I work to keep my photographs honest and authentic. I won't put you in poses that don't feel like you, and the emotions I capture should feel like the best, most honest expressions of who you are. 

I do everything I can to be exactly what you need - far from intimidating, relaxed when no one else is, and attentive to you.

My Process:

The first step is to inquire about your wedding date. I'll get back to you ASAP and let you know if I'm available!

If I'm available for your date we'll get you on the books and begin setting your vision for your photography experience.

I'll capture your wedding day from the time you get ready to your exit at the end of the night.

Your proofs will be ready and downloadable within 6-8 weeks.

Your design consultation is when you'll be making the final decisions about your products and artwork.

Any photos you choose to have in your album or as wall art will be hand  retouched to perfection.

Delivery

Your wall art and custom albums will be sent out and delivered by hand or by courier service within 8-10 weeks. My products are made in Italy of the finest materials. 

You wouldn't believe how many couples never do anything with their wedding photographs.

They have the best intentions, but the truth is that life happens and the photos end up sitting on a hard drive. They collect virtual dust for years, and are eventually forgotten about.

My process ensures your memories will be made into archival pieces of art. An album is included in each of my packages because I believe it is an important part of your legacy. These albums are tangible heirlooms that will never disappear as a result of imperfect technology, but instead will last a lifetime.

Too often I see engagement sessions that seem to be pretty photos taken in a random place just for the heck of it. And while they are pretty, I mean, it's not exactly special to go and take your portraits in a field anymore.

Am I right... or am I right?

Being engaged is an incredible season of your life and, to me, telling your story means capturing you two for who you actually are.

Enter: the Forever Session.  An engagement session with purpose.

Forever Sessions are designed around your story.

 Maybe you met at your weekly Tuesday night intramural soccer game, perhaps you're currently building your first home together, or you both live for kayaking the swamps until you get lost... Whatever it is that makes your love unique is what we will work to design your session around.
