the

wedding

experience

I have been photographing weddings for over 6 years now and it never gets old!  In fact, I fall even more in love with this job at every single wedding.  The joy, laughter, tears, and every detail are special for each couple.  Being able to witness and preserve the love of two people is an incredible experience. I am honored that so many brides have trusted me to capture their memories over the years! 

Every wedding is unique.  If you love joyful, candid photos and want to feel comfortable in front of the camera, you are my perfect couple!  If you love cheesy jokes and really bad puns, you were meant to be one of my couples!  Fill out the contact form and let's chat.  Once we determine that we're a perfect match, we'll move on to the booking process!

step one

next: save the date

Yay! You are my dream couple! Happy dances all around!  Let’s make sure your date is secured so that we can make this dream a reality! I will send you an online booking proposal where you can review your package, sign the contract, and pay your retainer to book.  A non-refundable 25% retainer is due to secure your date.  Now that you're officially booked, it's time to start planning!

step two

next: engagements

After you book, we can look at the calendar to schedule your engagement session.  Don't worry, it will be a breeze!  Just about every groom tells me at the beginning of the session that he hates taking pictures, but shortly after he is totally nailing every pose!  The engagement session is one of my favorites because the three of us really get to know each other and both of you become comfortable in front of the camera.

step three

next: timeline

I want to ensure that you have all the photos you've dreamed of for your wedding day, which is why I create a custom timeline for every couple.  My job is to know the best times to photograph each set of portraits throughout the day to create a seamless transition and stress-free experience for everyone.  I also build in plenty of time to get all those detail shots that make your wedding unique.

next: bridals

Brides usually schedule their bridal portraits about 2-4 weeks before their wedding.  This session is perfect for brides that plan to display a portrait at the reception - true Southern style!  It is the perfect day to do your hair and makeup trials, put your wedding gown on, and FEEL like a bride for the first time!

step five

next: your wedding!

The day you have been waiting for is finally here!  Now it's time for you to relax and let us do all the work.  To ensure that we capture your entire wedding story, we do not shoot less than 8 hours.  My priority is to capture the traditional shots that every bride needs, as well as creative and unique shots that will take your breath away.  The week after your wedding day, you'll be featured on my blog! Yay!

your wedding day!

step six

next: gallery

After your wedding day, you will receive an online gallery full of all your wedding memories!  You will have HUNDREDS of photos, so be sure to schedule some one-on-one viewing time with your new husband and relive all your favorite moments.  You will have access to your gallery for 10 years, so feel free to download, print, or share however you wish!

the

portrait

experience

As someone who comes from a family of 6, I have a special place in my heart for family portraits of all sizes.  I enjoy photographing families, anniversaries, maternity, seniors, and everything in between. I would be honored to create timeless photos for you for each of life's milestones.

You've seen my work and you have decided that you love my style!  Yay!  It's a huge compliment any time someone wants to book a session with me.  Contact me and tell me about the type of session you're wanting to book - family, seniors, maternity, and anything in between.  I'd love to chat with you about your session!

We can look at the calendar to schedule your session.  Most of my sessions are scheduled about two hours before sunset. I will send you an online booking proposal where you can review your package and pay your retainer to book.  A non-refundable $100 retainer is due to secure your date.   Don't worry, it will be a breeze!  Soon after the session starts, you will be nailing every pose and become comfortable in front of the camera!

The day you have been waiting for is finally here!  Now it's time for you to relax and let me do all the work.  As someone who was once camera-shy, I know exactly what to do to get a smile out of everyone - even the shyest member of your family and the ones who hate having their picture taken.  My priority is making sure that you have FUN during your session!
