 strive for a personal, candid, authentic, and completely custom wedding experience from the moment you first contact me, to well after your nuptials are over. I understand photography is a large part of the wedding day, but your experience and time with your family and friends is also incredibly important. I know how to be efficient, while ensuring we get the photos you have been dreaming of! 

Your wedding experience is about much more than simply having incredible wedding photos. You deserve a wedding photographer who will serve and encourage you in a way that makes your wedding entire experience joyful, meaningful, and true to yourself. I truly believe trust is the foundation to an amazing experience with your wedding photographer, and is the foundation of the experience I provide with all couples who work with me.

Your wedding is going to be incredible. Your wedding photos will be seamless, fun, and nothing short of amazing. This is my promise to you as your wedding photographer.

I want you to not only remember how your wedding day looked but also how amazing it felt!

You likely have questions. Please feel free to ask. I am here to discuss any questions you may have.

1. Say Hello

2. Save the Date

As soon as you are able, I highly recommend you book with me ASAP after you are engaged. I don't mean this to be any pressure, but peak dates (August - November) can book 8-12 months in advance.

Dates are held on a first come first serve basis. To save the date, both a 50% non-refundable retainer and signed wedding contract must be obtained. The remaining balance is due 30 days before your wedding day. Payment plans are available for any wedding package. I am currently booking weddings for 2024 - 2026.

3. Engagement Session

Your wedding is the beginning of a new chapter in your life. I highly recommend engagement sessions no later than 90 days before the wedding. It allows couples to get to know me before your wedding day, have an opportunity to work out some nerves, and see that not only is it easy, but no experience is necessary for stunning wedding images.

The Process

Common FAQs

Q: How many hours of coverage do I need?

A: Most traditional weddings need "full-day coverage" or eight (8) hour to comfortably cover all main aspects of a wedding day from hair & makeup to the grand sparkler exit. Or roughly from 2 - 10pm. Some need a little more, and others a little less.  If your wedding ceremony and reception are in two different locations, your wedding day will require a lot of commuting between events, have a large family, or a large wedding party, more coverage might be needed to adequately cover your wedding day appropriately. We will discuss the specifics of your wedding to understand what is best for your wedding day. 

Q: How many photos will we get?

A: The number of photos delivered from your wedding day can vary based on different timelines, locations, activities, and so on, but on average you will receive 50+ edited photos per hour booked. I usually shoot thousands as I tend to be an over-shooter, and then go through and pick out the very best to edit for a final gorgeous gallery.

Q: When will we receive our photos?

A: Sneak peeks will be delivered within one week from your wedding day. The completed digital gallery will be delivered within 4x weeks of your wedding date to your email. You will have full access to download all photos in high-resolution (best for printing) and web size (for social media). You will have full print rights to use the images as you choose.

If a signature wedding album was chosen as a part of your wedding package, it will be delivered to you 2x weeks after the final design.

Q: Do I need an engagement session?

A:  That depends on you and your needs. I personally recommend them for three simple reasons:

1. First and foremost, you are entering a new chapter of your life. This chapter is worth celebrating!
2. I do understand that being in front of a camera can feel intimidating, and therefore engagement sessions are a great way to work out some nerves before your wedding day. All engagement sessions come complete with an engagement guide that answers all questions regarding recommended locations for sessions, timing, what to wear, and posing.
3. Engagement sessions are great for save-the-dates, invitations, website registries, guest books, framed prints, and of course, for the Gram.

Engagement sessions that are bundled with wedding packages are discounted 50% off.

Q: We aren't models & sometimes awkward, will we get good photos?

A: This is one of the most common questions I get, if not the number one. It is normal to feel as if you need experience beforehand, but I don't expect you to be a professional model. This question is the reason why I believe engagement sessions are so valuable to work out some nerves.

Well before your wedding day, we will discuss the process, what to expect, and about posing. During your wedding day, I will give you easy instructions asking you to move and interact in ways that capture candid moments in a flattering style, and I also sprinkle in traditional poses for more "fireplace" photos. Throughout your wedding day, I will give prompts and directions that include movements, words, and feelings that organically blend with your wedding day. A camera will not be in your face all day and photography will blend in with the natural flow of your wedding day.

Q: Do you offer any albums, prints, canvases, guest books, etc?

A: Totally! But I want you feeling 1,000% comfortable and excited about the quality of your photographs before placing orders on those. That way, you only order exactly what you want, when you want, and when you know with confidence that they are going to look amazing on your walls and in your fine art heirloom albums. If a wedding album is selected in your wedding package, you will pick your favorite 50-75 to outline in your wedding album, which we will go over together. 

All of your photos (wedding, engagement, and bridal) will complete with an online print shop where you have the ability to order exactly what you want.

Q: What are companion albums?

A: Companion albums are duplicate versions of your signature wedding album. They can be great gift ideas for family members during the holidays, anniversaries, or just because.

Q: Do you offer payment plans?

A: Yes, I do! Traditional payments are 50% due at the time of booking (within a week) and the final 50% is due 30 days prior to your wedding day. But, if you wanted to do the payment plan, I can stretch it into equal 1/3's or 1/4's if that works best for you. Just let me know what you prefer, and I will make it happen. 

Q: Do you travel? will you come to our destination wedding?

A: I will travel ANYWHERE for your love story!! From Italy in the summer, to Iceland to see the Northern lights, to Napa Valley for wine country. You name it, and I am ready for the adventure for your wedding day! Reach out for a custom quote for your destination wedding.

Q: what happens if you aren't able to make it to our wedding day?

In the super unlikely event that I am too ill, injured, or there's some other emergency, I have a list of colleagues that we can call on to replace me who have similar styles of photography & editing. That said, I have never missed a wedding. You're in good hands. I promise.

Q: Do you offer micro-wedding or elopement coverage?

A: Yes I do. Micro-wedding and elopement coverage begins at two hours of coverage, within a 90-minute radius from Raleigh, and must be on a non-Saturday.  Packages begin at $2,ooo.

Micro-wedding and elopement coverage cannot be used towards a traditional wedding day. 

Q: When should we book you for our wedding?

A: As soon as you are able, I highly recommend you book with me ASAP after you are engaged. I don't mean this to be any pressure, but peak dates (August - November) can book 8-12 months in advance. Dates are held on a first come first serve basis. I am currently booking weddings for 2024 - 2026.

Q: How do I book you for my wedding day?

A: Love that question the most! To book me for your wedding day, please inquire with your desired wedding collection and any questions you may have. After we have discussed the specifics of your wedding, in order to move forward, a signed contract and non-refundable retainer is required. to reserve your wedding date.

Traditional payments are 50% due at the time of booking (within a week) and the final 50% is due 30 days prior to your wedding day.
