the in-between moments
that make you, you

READ THIS, PRETTY PLEASE

If you want to have a laid back, intimate wedding experience, enjoy the company of sweet friends, celebrate love in a place you love, and have photos that reflect how the day felt, then you’re my kind of people.

Let’s embrace the wind messing up your hair, the bottom of your dress getting dirty, and all the other spontaneous and “imperfect” moments that make your day memorable.

We won’t stop to flatten out your hair or fluff up your dress. I want to keep it natural and honest, just the two of you and your love.

WHAT WILL IT BE LIKE TO WORK WITH YOU?
WE’RE AWKWARD IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA. IS THAT OKAY?

During the planning process, I like to help as much as possible. I’ve put together a guide to help you plan for photos, timeline, light, etc. Whether you want my opinion on scheduling or what shoes to get, I’m here to help!

On your wedding day, I won’t do posey portraits or the typical “pinterest” shots. I want to capture how you felt, the mood, the “outtakes”, and the unscripted moments.

I will give you direction, while photographing what happens naturally as you respond and react, to me and to each other. It’s less about the posing and more about the direction and the action cues I give you. I’ll ask questions, get you talking, and bring out those natural responses!

For the rest of the day, I keep it mostly documentary, capturing the natural moments as they happen. I won’t step in and change the naturally occurring emotion.

And I do shoot the more “formal” family portraits and bridal party shots, I just don’t spend a ton of time of the posey stuff.

Absolutely! 99% of my couples tell me they’re awkward having their photo taken, even the ones that might look super hip and natural in my portfolio. I promise. My job is to make you feel comfortable, break that awkward barrier and draw out your genuine selves. So don’t worry, you don’t need to be model pros, you just need to be honest, open, and remember how into each other you are, and you’ll be great!

WHERE ARE YOU BASED? DO YOU TRAVEL?
WHAT ARE YOUR RATES?

I live on the road, in my sprinter van. Which means YES I love to travel! Your wedding may or may not require a travel fee, depending on where and when it takes place. So just get in touch and I’ll give you an exact number!

You can also take a look at my current travel schedule, I’m constantly adding new locations and dates. If your location isn’t listed, just get in touch and we’ll make it happen!

My rates start at $4,300 for 6 hours. Elopements start at $2,200. Take a look at my rates page for more coverage details.

I also offer the option to add a second shooter, engagement or day-after session, albums, and more. Just get in touch for a full rate sheet!

DO YOU SHOOT ELOPEMENTS?
DO YOU USE BACKUPS?

Absolutely! I especially love laid-back elopements in nature.

Yes, I always bring backup gear, and your photos are backed up immediately after your wedding.

WHEN WILL WE RECEIVE OUR IMAGES?
HAS YOUR WORK BEEN PUBLISHED?

No later than 6 weeks after your wedding.

WHY DO YOU ALSO MENTOR?
WE LIKE WHAT WE SEE, NOW WHAT?

Education is a small part of what I do, but I love it. Weddings are still my top priority, and my biggest passion. The reason I enjoy mentoring is because I wish I had help when I first started, and I really love being able to offer that to new photographers who are finding their way.

Let’s chat! Don’t be shy, get in touch and we’ll make it happen!
