If you want to have a laid back wedding, enjoy the company of friends,
and avoid that “big production” wedding vibe, then you’re my kind of people.
Let’s embrace the wind in your hair, your dress getting a little dirty,
and all the other spontaneous & imperfect elements.
That’s what makes your day memorable.
No awkward posing. More documenting & natural direction.
Here’s the breakdown:
I like to be involved in the planning process. I have 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’ll give you direction, while photographing what happens naturally as you respond, to me and to each other. It’s less about the posing and more about the direction and 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.
Wanna hear what others have to say? Feel free to look at some words from past couples HERE!
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!
The most popular collection is 8 hours for $4,900. I also have 6-hour and 10-hour options. Elopements start at $3,200 for 4 hours. I also offer the option to add a second shooter, engagement or day-after session, and more. Just get in touch for a full rate sheet!
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!
Absolutely! I especially love laid-back elopements in nature.
I do sometimes take film/polaroids as you can see on my website, and I love them! However, I don’t guarantee a certain number of film shots or polaroids, because due to timeline restrictions, light, and landscape, I don’t always end up shooting film at weddings. But if your weddings allows us enough time to slow down, and if the light is just right that day, we might be able to take some and you’ll receive a few film images as part of your final gallery! Film, for me, is a fun little bonus I get to add sometimes!
Yes, I always bring backup gear, and your photos are backed up immediately after your wedding.
No later than 6 weeks after your wedding.

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.
