The Experience

From the moment you arrive to have your hair and makeup done to the moment you say I do…your wedding day will be a day that you will always remember.  It is a monumental milestone in life that is filled with joy!  From bridal details, groom details, first look to the recitation of your vows, it my passion and also my mission to ensure that your sweet moments are captured and preserved.  I truly enjoy helping brides and grooms and families through the process, and also love building a relationship with them too!


Details really help tell the story of your day!  I strongly believe that paying attention to every detail is essential to providing a great experience for YOU!  There are many details that go into creating a beautiful portrait session or wedding.  They are all important and ultimately work together so that you can receive a beautiful product.  I firmly believe that building a positive relationship (including good communication) with YOU is the glue that holds everything together.   I’m a relational person and truly enjoy this aspect of my job! I desire to get to know you and walk this part of the journey with you, so that I can serve you well.


  1. Fill out the Wedding Inquiry Form to start the conversation about your wedding. I will respond in 24-48 hours and will invite you to share more about the dreams you have for your wedding day.
  2. After I send you the Wedding Inquiry Guide, we will set up a complimentary no pressure consultation so that I can learn more about you and your wedding photography needs.
  3. After the consultation, you can book. In order to book, you will need to sign the contract and pay a retainer. Then, you will officially be on my calendar!
  4. Three months before your wedding I will prepare your Wedding Photography Timeline, coordinate with you and your wedding planner, then schedule your wedding timeline meeting (via phone) for 14 days before your wedding.
  5. I will show up to your wedding and get to work! After I come into the location where you are getting ready and greet you, I will begin photographing your wedding details. I will follow the timeline and capture your story as your day unfolds.
  6. You will receive your beautiful Wedding Gallery via email. All wedding galleries are online with the option to order products.

**If you have contacted me about a portrait session (anniversary session, Senior session, or head shot session), we will chat on the phone or via email about how I can serve you and discuss when you would like to book your session.**
