wedding + Engagement photography

You’re looking for more than a photographer. You want someone who will be in your corner from the moment you introduce yourself and long after the wedding day has ended. You appreciate an artist who will give gentle direction and let natural moments unfold. You realize the value in investing in gorgeous, authentic photos for the most important moments in your life.

I believe each wedding is just as unique as the couple. Each of my clients receives three collections tailored to perfectly fit their specific wedding weekend needs. All of my collections include a minimum of 8 hours of coverage, two photographers, and timeline review and collaboration with your wedding planner. I'd love to get to know you, hear about what you're looking for with your wedding photography experience, and decide if we're a great fit.

our process

Meet  |  Once you inquire, I’ll send you a link to schedule a time to over video chat. We’ll chat about the details of what you’re dreaming of for your wedding day. This will allow us to make sure I’m the best fit for you!

step iI.

Reserve Your Date  |  After we’ve connected and gotten to know one another, I’ll send you a contract and invoice. You’ll review and sign the contract, as well as pay the retainer fee. This will lock in your date!

step iII.

Session  |  For your Engagement Session, you can be certain we’ll have so much fun creating beautiful memories. We’ll meet at your session location wherever your heart desires (a Californian vineyard or sailboat in Montauk sound wonderful!), and I’ll provide simple direction in posing to evoke genuine emotion between you and your love.

step iV.

One Month Check Up  |  At this point, we’ll set up a time to chat on the phone about how you’re feeling and any photo concerns you may have. Then, we’ll nail down what works best for your timeline and photo priorities. I’ll send along a questionnaire for you to complete, allowing me to ensure I know every detail going into your wedding day.

step V.

Wedding Day  |  My team and I will arrive early to get a feel for the layout of your venue and take some photos along the way. We’ll meet you in your bridal suite to begin photographing every detail, from your gorgeous gown to your bespoke invitation suite. You can feel confident knowing we’ll handle the timeline with ease while documenting your day with artful excellence.

step VI.

Gallery Delivery + Prints   |  Within eight weeks of your wedding date, you'll receive your stunning online gallery for viewing and downloading your images. You’ll even be able to create a list of favorites, share with friends and family, and utilize the professional print shop directly linked to your gallery to order heirloom-quality print products.
