I totally understand feeling hella awkward while getting pictures taken. But hear me out, when was the last time you had professional photos done? Chances are, you aren't actually awkward in front of the camera, you've just had awkward pictures taken, and hey we've all been there! That's why instead of cookie cutter poses, I work very candidly, with easygoing prompts that draw your natural selves out. So your photos will feel like a genuine reflection of your love!
Don't get me wrong, I love a good golden hour too, but the best photos are the ones that aren't about looking good for the gram'. It's about your experience, the candid moments and genuine emotions, and documenting the storyline of your day. It's the photos that don't try hard that make us feel the most.
Not into big hikes? Let's chill and celebrate in your backyard. Big crowds make you anxious? Let's picnic in a field of wildflowers. Whatever your day looks like, your photos and your experience will be authentic to you!
My style is blend of cinematography and documentary-style photojournalism, with creative, moody, romantic images that feel like a true reflection of your hearts. I'm passionate about documenting every little detail of your day, whether it be the happy tears at your first look, your flower dog running down the aisle, a peaceful moment together at sunset, or throwing it DOWN on the dance floor after shots with your best friends. I promise to pour my heart into my craft for your memories to be perfectly frozen in time forever.
I want my couples to feel like we would totally hang out outside this whole photography thing. So instead of feeling like a stranger is documenting your day, it feels like an old friend. It's important we vibe together, so I can document your epic love story in all it's beauty.
Whether you're eloping just the two of you, or planning a 50 person shindig, I'll send you a detailed questionnaire that helps me get all the info I need to help breathe life into your vision for your wedding day!
Not sure where to have a private elopement? Interested in having an intimate wedding at a State Park? Looking for a good venue? Location scouting is included in all my collections, and I'll help you find the best location for you to exchange vows! I'll send you a master guide of locations to choose from that are unique to the area you want. And each location has all the details like trail lengths, foot traffic, difficulty, best lighting, etc. and of course, lots of pictures for us visual folks!
I've got plenty of planning resources for you as well as vendor recommendations if needed. This stage is where you'll begin booking lodging, travel if needed, any activities you're including (like paddleboard rental) and other vendors!
It's all starting to come together! We'll hop on the phone together and craft a stress free, seamless timeline for your day so you can relax and forget time exists with your partner. This is the stage to finalize any additional details, and we'll send you an elopement packing checklist as well so you're completely prepared!
Woohoo! It's happening! You'll spend the day soaking up sweet time with each other, and celebrate the start of your beautiful marriage. And I'll be there documenting all the happy tears and laughter shared, so your photos tell your honest and intentional story.
I cover all my own travel fees, for all wedding and elopement collections! The only additional fees that may be included would be for permits if required, or for your engagement session.
I throw in a complimentary engagement session for any wedding or elopement that books 6+ hours of coverage. This is a super fun way to experience shooting together and create some magical photos together before your big day!
All you need to do from here is reach out and get in touch with me through my contact page! I'd love to hear all the details, like your vision for your day, how you met, your proposal story, or even your favorite pizza toppings!
I've found that phone calls are so much easier than emailing back and forth when it comes to chatting, getting to know each other, and figuring out how I can help you best! Though totally optional, I'd love to hop on the phone with you and see what we can create together.
Booking is super duper easy! All I need from you is a signed contract and 30% retainer paid to officially book and reserve your date! From here I'll help with location scouting, planning tips, timeline creation, and being a shoulder to lean on whenever you need.
