"someone asked me what home was, and all i could think of were the stars on the tip of your tongue, the flowers sprouting from your mouth, the roots entwined in the gaps between your fingers, the ocean echoing inside of your rib cage." - ec
You're getting married and that's a pretty big deal
in fact, it's one of the biggest deals ever. which is why it's important to have someone there to capture it. after the flowers are wilted and your beautiful dress is tucked away, your photographs are all that's left to preserve the sweet memories of your wedding day. wedding photography is an investment, one that will ensure you'll never forget the biggest day of your life.
more than a vendor
i see my work as a collaboration with my clients. you're not hiring another vendor, but an artist and a friend who will stick by your side throughout the wedding day. just as much as you want to find the right person for the job, i want to make sure i'm the best fit for you, too. i love meeting couples who just get it. that this whole wedding thing is exciting and the greatest day ever, but that it's also just the prelude to something more beautiful to come; the purest commitment there is and the beginning of a lifelong journey. most importantly, i love couples who bring their excitement to the table, couples who trust the creative process. i have an artistic, romantic, and journalistic approach to photography. i love to capture the simple, genuine, and authentic moments that happen throughout the day that add up to help tell your beautiful and unique story. i love to create images that will bring you back to that very moment, that very feeling you felt on your wedding day.
it's your wedding day and i simply cannot imagine limiting that to a set of 6 or 8 hours. i want to capture the full story; all those little moments that add up to one, big, glorious day. so, let's keep things simple, let your day unfold organically, and allow you to enjoy every moment of your non rushed wedding day glory. this is a story that needs telling - and that’s why i offer full day coverage to my brides and grooms.
the full day wedding coverage collection
- unlimited hourly coverage
- two photographers included at all times
- online download
- custom package containing flash drives
- online gallery to share with friends and family
- printing rights
- two hour engagement session or rehearsal dinner coverage
engagement sessions are so much fun and a great idea for so many reasons. one of the best is that it helps you get to know me and get familiar with my style. by the time wedding day comes along, we’ve already spent time with each other. that helps you feel more comfortable in front of the camera and helps me get photos that are the most genuine representation of you.
the sessions last about an hour or two. it just depends on the scope of the shoot, locations, outfit changes, etc. you can usually expect about 50-150 finished photos delivered online.

Let's get this party started.
how to book
it's important that we get to know each other before the big day. i love to meet with both the bride and the groom for coffee to discuss your wedding day more in detail. we'll answer any questions you have and go over your wedding timeline together to ensure there's enough time for portraits. if you decide to book after our meeting, i ask that my clients sign and agree to the terms laid out in a photography agreement. in addition to the signed agreement, I also ask for 30% of the total fee as a retainer. the remaining 70% is due 30 days before the wedding day. payments can be made via check or cash, both physical or online.
q & a
q. how many photos will i receive?
a. every wedding is unique, but on average you can expect a minimum of 60-70 images per hour of coverage. depending on the size and scope, i usually deliver anywhere between 500-800+ images.
q. how long will it take to receive my online gallery?
a. you can expect to receive your full online gallery 4-6 weeks after your wedding day. i know how anxious you are to see them so i promise i'll let you know the minute they're ready and will send a few sneak peeks in the mean time!
please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions. i’d love to chat.
