THE EXPERIENCE MY CLIENTS KNOW (and love)

01.

LET LOOSE

Your wedding day is meant to be enjoyed! Instead of worrying about being perfect, we’ll make sure that your day is perfect for YOU. Let your personality shine through and focus on the love you share. Let loose, be silly, and get lost in the magic of your favorite day. And fear not - I’ll be right there with you the whole time.

02.

STORYBOARD PHOTOS

I know you’re probably wondering what I mean. I mean that I’ll document your wedding in a way that reads like a story. You’ll be able to see snapshots from every moment and put them together to see the whole timeline come to life. It’s a big no-no for me to interrupt your experience because I’m here to capture your day as it naturally unfolds. So let’s dance, play, and honor your first day as newlyweds.

03.

TRUST AND CONNECTION

I know that you’re inviting me into a deeply personal life experience, and I will never take that for granted. Your comfort and happiness is my top priority, so I make sure to do the groundwork from the beginning. I want you to know me, trust me, and be able to lean on me for guidance, advice, or anything else you need.

04.

CUSTOMIZATION

No relationship is alike, and your wedding should feel like yours. That’s why I create customized suggestions, timelines, and more for each couple. You’ll never feel like your wedding is an afterthought because I'm committed to making your big day your best day. At the end of the day, I want you to look at your photos and think “that’s so us.”

05.

LOVE BECOMES ART

Prints, prints, prints! I’m a champion of turning your photos into tangible works of art because these babies shouldn’t live on a hard drive forever. I’ll work with you closely to design a beautiful wedding album that you can hold in your hands and share to your heart’s content.
