Let's do this!

The lowdown...

From the first email, to dropping off your wedding album at the Post Office... it's done by me. You always get me. I know money is the root of all evil, but it’s a necessary evil. Photography is my livelihood, but I never want money to be something we can't openly discuss.

I know you have a budget for your wedding day and you need to work within that budget. I offer hourly coverage and intimate/elopement style packages for this reason. I never want any budget constraints to be the reason you can't work with me! If my approach and style of photography really speaks to you, let's chat about it over some coffee and donuts!

 
 
 

Write your own vows. Make your own traditions. Ditch the formals or embrace them. Cry hard. Party hard. Love hard. You, your partner, and this day.


Relax… I’ve got this.

This experience is...

For those who want something
a little different from the rest.

I'm there for you every step of the way. My job begins as soon as the agreement is signed. In the months ahead, I'm available for any questions and recommendations... photography related or not.

Questions? I have answers.

It's like we're speed dating.

 

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?

I take a photojournalistic approach, focusing on the candid moments. I am hands off most of the time, but direct when needed (like when you ask me, "what do I do with my hands!?" during portrait time). I strive to make original images with every client.

DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS OR SESSIONS?

YES! I've photographed weddings and photo sessions all over the U.S. and abroad, including Dallas, Puerto Rico, London, the English countryside, New Orleans, Tampa, Phoenix, Chicago, and Los Angeles.
No destination is too far (my lifetime goal is to be a Delta million-miler so let's make my dreams come true!).

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN DOING THIS?

I've been photographing weddings for over five years. During that time, I have perfected everything... right down to mastering how to put a boutonnière on a groom, making sure there's always a sewing kit in my bag JUST in case, and knowing when grandma is going to be wiping that tear away in the middle of the ceremony and snapping the perfect shot.

HOW MANY WEDDING PHOTOS DO I RECEIVE?

I deliver 500+ images on a typical wedding day. There are no limits!

DO YOU HAVE BACKUP GEAR?

Yes, I always bring a backup camera body in addition to the two I use on your wedding day. I also shoot on cameras with two memory card slots in each for added backup. Your photos are finally backed up immediately after your wedding to local drives and in the cloud. In simpler terms... I take your images seriously.

CAN WE GET AN ALBUM OF OUR WEDDING DAY?

Yes! My heirloom albums are designed in-house and manufactured through a professional print lab in the style of traditional bookmakers. All albums are customized to your liking.

DO YOU TAKE WEDDING DAY FAMILY PORTRAITS?

Yep! Family portraits are so important to me. They are usually what clients get printed first!

CAN WE GET A USB OF OUR IMAGES?

Yes, I offer custom made professional-grade USB Backup thumb drives. They're handmade from fallen trees in either Western Poland or Slovenia. They're something you won't want to hide in a drawer and forget about!

I book a limited number of weddings and sessions a year so it's never too early to inquire!

I know, I also wish I could clone myself and photograph all of the things!
