Wedding days can go by in such a blur. Months and months of planning lead up to a celebration that lasts less than half a day. I believe full heartedly in capturing the spontaneous moments, big and small, on a wedding day, and letting you have time to be with your people - a wedding day is not a photoshoot. I will forever cherish my wedding photos with my grandparents and loved ones who are no longer here, and I don't take it lightly that I can give that to my couples.
I am proud to say that I happily welcome couples of all backgrounds, race and sexual orientation without hesitation. All love deserves to be celebrated.
For the one dreaming of heirloom imagery that captures the celebration of their love story.
Rooted in a desire to freeze your most precious moments so that you can share them for years to come.
I can't wait to tell yours.
From the moment you first met, to this very day, your unique love story has been unfolding right before your eyes.
Maybe it's the way they look at you when you don't notice, or the way you laugh when they're around. Whatever makes you unique, that's the story just waiting to be told.
To make sure we are a good fit for each other, we'll set up a time to talk through your dream wedding & all the gorgeous details. Then, I’ll walk you through my approach to photographing wedding days and you can fire away any and all questions you have for me.
Once you're ready to move forward with the booking process, I'll send you an online booking proposal where you can review and sign your contract & pay the 50% deposit.
Your engagement session is the perfect excuse to spend an evening together away from the hustle & bustle of wedding planning. I'll guide you into poses that makes you look & feel your best while capturing memories that you will cherish long after the I Do’s.
Thirty days before your wedding day I will send an online questionnaire that fills me in on all the important details, and help you create the perfect wedding photo timeline for your big day.
It's time to do the thing! Get fancied up, drink lots of champagne, marry the love of your life and leave the rest to me!
Within a week of your big day I'll send over some sneak peeks to hold you through until gallery delivery, about 6 weeks after the wedding. From there we design your perfect heirloom album and you enjoy these precious memories as a married couple!

As a photographer, it's my job to capture the most fleeting moments of your biggest day. An honor I don't take lightly. Wedding photography is an investment in forever.
