After photographing more than 125 weddings over the past few years, I've discovered the value in timeless images and capturing the moments that take place on a wedding day. 

Laughing with your bridesmaids as you pop the champagne. The look on his face when he sees you for the first time. Dancing the night away with the one you love.

So much goes into creating this day full of memories. And at the end of the day, as you get into your getaway car, you'll realize that your wedding was more than the flowers and place settings. It's about celebrating the start of a new era. A new family.

My joy and passion is capturing all of the moments so you can relive them forever.

the wedding process

we get to know each other over coffee or a cocktail

You've looked through the photographs on my website and fallen in love! So the next step is setting up a time to chat to make sure we're the perfect fit for one another.

You've locked in your date. Let the fun begin!

Once we're official, I'll send over a little surprise to get you excited for your big day! I always love to be available for vendor recommendations or to guide you in anyway you need. Even if you just want to gush about wedding details!

the engagement session

We can begin planning your session immediately after booking or choose a season you love. There isn't a "bad" time to take your engagement photos. I'll send over a helpful guide to help you choose your location, outfits, and the perfect date!

We prepare for the big day to arrive.

I'll check in about 3 months before the wedding to start gathering details about the day. We'll chat about the timeline, surprises, significant details, family photo lists, special traditions and anything else I should know before your day arrives.

your wedding day arrives!

It's finally here, and it's time to celebrate! I'll be enthusiastically by your side every step of the way, capturing all of your incredible moments.  I'm so excited to celebrate and capture your wedding day!

your full image gallery is delivered

You can expect to receive all of your wedding photos within 4 weeks of your wedding day. Photos are delivered in an online gallery, as well as a USB for personal storage. Then we can begin crafting the perfect album for your wedding story!
