First, relationships. I really value getting to know my clients and making them feel comfortable. And photography-wise, when someone feels at ease with you, they are always going to look better/more themselves in photos. Secondly, I value color. My photos are edited to stay as true to color as possible, without desaturating (taking colors out). My work is bright, bold, and beautiful. Lastly, I LOVE night photography. It’s really fun as a creator and clients always love the stunning results.
All wedding packages include the digital images, and your purchase of the wedding package includes print and share rights to those images. When it comes to portrait sessions, you have the option to purchase digitals, prints products, or both.
Wedding packages start at $1,595 for 5 hours. Packages can be adjusted for one or two photographers and there are plenty of awesome print products to add on. I’m also happy to give a quote for small, 1-2 hour weddings. (there have been a lot of those lately due to Covid!). Recognizing that you are investing in your memories, I always offer payment plans.

Yes! Albums are available to both wedding and portrait clients. Using one of the best professional labs in the country allows me to provide beautiful, high-end products. These albums are hand crafted and built to last for generations. I love providing clients with something they will treasure for a lifetime!
With two photographers you are always going to capture more. Two photographers can often capture completely different perspectives of the same moment, which adds depth to your memories. However, sometimes two photographers are out of the budget or just aren’t practical. For smaller weddings, (6 or under in bridal party, and 50 guest or less, one photographer can most likely cover all the most important moments. Ultimately, it comes down to what is most meaningful to you to capture. If you are really into details and/or lots of portraits/candids of your bridal party and guests, I’d definitely recommend having two!

First looks have become increasingly popular over the last 10 years. At this point, I would say that the majority of my clients are doing a First Look. I do highly recommend it because there are some really great benefits. With a First Look, you can organize the day so that the majority of your planned photos (wedding couple, family and bridal party groups) are taken before the start of the ceremony. In my experience, any time a couple has decided to do a First Look, their day has had a more laid back quality, especially after the ceremony. These couples have been able to enjoy more time with their guests and relax some during the cocktail hour. I especially recommend a First Look if your ceremony and reception are at the same venue. In that case, there is usually less time in between the two for photos. First Looks also allow couples to have a little more time together on their wedding day. You only get one day – it is pretty special to have some quiet time together before all of the festivities start.
Though I’m a big fan of First Looks, I ALWAYS leave it up to my clients and respect their decision. Sometimes couples really just want to see each other for the first time for that ‘moment’ at the start of the ceremony. If you will be disappointed not having your moment at that time, by all means don’t do a First Look. This is your day – plan it accordingly!
