Let's talk about this experience

from day one.

all in

In the beginning of this whole wedding planning journey, it started with a dream. You, them, for the rest of forever. That's the end game. But let's step back for a second and take a look at the view. As you dive into the creative and expansive ways to celebrate your love, drown out the outside noise and pressures and traditions and keep drawing those lines out from the both of you. What makes you feel inspired, giddy, cozy, or even nostalgic; what honors the joy and love you've cultivated to get to this point? Find those things and melt them together with your dreams and you'll find a sweet spot that feels oh, so you.

It's always easy to single out the big things we do together like the initial booking, planning the engagement session, and of course the wedding day. But when you're diving into this stuff for the first time, a lot of the major process is totally unknown! Need help finding vendors? I have a list of my very best connections for you. Trying to plan the timeline? I have so many samples - PLUS I'll be sending you a detailed questionnaire 6-8 weeks out that will help us put one together for you with the perfect photo and gap times. Picking out your style for a wardrobe change? I've got links on TAP for incredible styles. From getting ready lists, to portrait location scouting, herding family for photos, to the million little things day of like tying the perfect bow or literally re-building your floral arch 30 minutes before the ceremony because of strong winds (yes, really) - I've got you.

"Every detail was captured perfectly and she is so experienced; she
is not just a photographer. She is your barista, hype girl, errand runner, and florist (one of her many hidden talents). Also, as someone who dislikes photos of themselves, I can honestly say I loved every single photo from our wedding gallery."

                                                              "We're not photogenic people, we're gonna need a lot of help," is exactly equal to the amount of people who see previews on my camera after a sweet moment and yell "Holy shit babe that's us!! We look so good!" and I laugh every single time, haha. Having photos that feel like you is about letting your guard down and just being with your person; they are your today, tomorrow, and forever one. When you focus on that and bring your photographer into the mix, they see it. They see imperceptible movements in your eyes and are there freezing it so you can see it, too. 


       
Don't worry, I'll still be there quietly guiding you along the way; I want your natural selves to shine through, and sometimes that can take getting you moving, it helps you remember how to be real humans in front of someone's camera. Thankfully, that's like my whole job! We'll make sure you connect to each other, be candid and just sit together, take direction for actions rather than just stiff poses. We still wanna see those faces though, so we'll make sure we're not forgetting to look into the camera every so often! These tips throughout the day remind you to be present in where you are - sometimes we all need that little reminder. Come ready to hang out with your partner, I'll take care of the rest.

The amount of people who say, 

Feeling stressed because you've never had professional photos taken and are hyper fixated on not looking stiff?

portrait  time

how long until gallery delivery?

For weddings: final gallery delivery is guaranteed by 6 weeks, but during peak months (september - october) that moves to 8 weeks to accommodate the rise in busy season. Portrait sessions hold steady at 1-2 weeks all year long. If there are ever any delays you'll know well ahead of time - communication is #1 here.

are there extra fees after signing?

Nope! There is an industry standard, non-refundable retainer fee to hold the date and solidify your booking which is due AT signing; the remaining total balance of the package is due 30 days before the event. If we want to add or change details that would affect the total price, you'll have to sign off on the change after we agree!

can we bring 2+ outfits?

I want you to bring whatever will fill your confidence and contribute towards the look and feel we're striving for - then when we get there, we can decide on two-ish outfits that best fit our goals. I don't limit outfit numbers but just keep in mind changing times eat up session times. I'm not super rigid but we're aiming for an hour ish!

do you do in-home sessions?

YES! Listen. I love me a good in-home session - talk about being in your comfort place. Bake, sip coffee, snuggle on the couch, lay in the grass out back - it's so open to being creative and fun. Pets are totally encouraged to be involved.

can we extend coverage day-of?

Of course! My coverage doesn't have hour limits as it stands today, however we'll aim for a timeline that generally starts an hour before dress time, and ends about an hour into open dance or to your exit if planned. If it runs late, I've got you covered.

f a q

do you give previews after?

Yes! But also no. Weddings will receive a preview gallery within 48 hours which has 40-60 shots that span the wedding day to tide you over while your images are being processed. Sessions are generally delivered so quickly they aren't needed, but I always send one or two same day while i'm scrolling through so you get stoked with me.

are there ever hidden fees
after signing?

never - for all prices quoted in the pricing guide, they include travel, tax and any product costs.

destination weddings + elopements outside of the continental united states will see an additional fee to account for higher travel expenses, but the layout of costs are made plain in the proposal before signing.

can you help with what to wear?

yes! part of your welcome guide discusses session apparel. it is so, so important that you are above all comfortable. but I can totally help you plan color schemes, fabric combos, etc to create a specific vibe with you. feel free to text me pics when you're working it out too! I love that stuff.

five

can we extend coverage day-of?

of course! we all know things happen and/or run late - or maybe you just had a killer last minute after party idea you want documented. My goal first and foremost is to be there for you, and if it goes more than a half hour over we'll take care of the invoice after; but know I'll always make sure you know what's coming before we move on.
