YOU'RE LOOKING FOR A PHOTOGRAPHER WHO CAN:
TAKE THE PHOTOS
CALM YOUR NERVES
FOLLOW A TIMELINE
WRANGLE THE ROWDY COUSINS
TEACH GRANDMA A LINE DANCE
LAUGH WITH YOU
I've got you covered!
Your wedding day coverage starts months before with a fun and romantic engagement session. You'll be dressed in your best. You will hug and kiss more than you have in months.
We will work together to plan an adventure that really represents you as a couple.
Have a favorite town? Love a brewery? Beach bums? Own a sailboat?
We'll make this session something that will wow your friends.
You'll have photos for your save-the-dates, your wedding website, to put on display at your shower, and to frame for your gift table.
And of course, you'll have pics to post to count down the days until your wedding!
BY YOUR SIDE
The day is finally here!
I'm going to be by your side, to help keep you on track, to capture the moments of getting ready, to get photos of the fun you are having, and to photograph that moment when you put on your dress and it all becomes real.
I'll make you laugh. I'll cry when you get dressed. And I will give you encouraging words when it starts to feel stressful.
IT TAKES TWO
I always work with a second photographer, who will be following your partner while getting ready and hanging out with friends.
This is a fun time to capture the relationship between friends.
It's also a great time to recompose, get mentally prepared, and get coached by the second photographer on how to make amazing photos happen.
This is also the perfect time for an immediate family photo before the schedule really gets underway.
If you opt for a first look, you have a chance to spend some time with your best friend, the one you cannot wait to spend the rest of your life with, on your wedding day, before you say your "I Do".
Weddings can be hectic. They can be stressful. And a lot of people feel very anxious about showing emotion in front of a crowd.
If you decide to steal away and see each other before the ceremony, you not only get to have an exciting and emotional moment, but with two photographers there, you will have photos of each of your reactions.
We'll get some portraits, head off to the ceremony, and the fun can begin!
Your ceremony should be personalized in a way that shares what you believe, what you hold important, what your traditions are, and how you want to pledge your love.
Whether you are choosing a traditional Mass or a small and meaningful ceremony presided by your uncle, we will work together to determine important moments to photograph.
These are the people you adore so much, you couldn't imagine your wedding day without them there.
Bridal party portraits are important. We will take the photos that show off the beauty of the day, but also show off the fun that you have with those that were by your side all day long.
We keep it fun. We tell jokes. We laugh.
And we move it along so that the party can begin!
It's possible that you have not had the whole family together in long time.
Or maybe your union is the beautiful blending of two households.
Family formals may be something that is important to you.
As we build the schedule, we can determine which group photos should happen immediately after the ceremony, and which ones are best for the reception.
This day is about you, so of course we need to make time for lots of portraits.
It's a great chance to catch your breath before the party begins.
It's also another chance for kisses and hugs and an occasional butt pinch to bring out a genuine smile.
It's the perfect opportunity to breathe in the moment and celebrate the fact that you are married before you walk in that reception room and dance the night away.
You've planned a fun entrance and you have rehearsed your first dance. You are curious what will be in the speeches and you are wondering if the cake cutting will be civil. And you're excited to hit the dance floor with your family and friends.
I'll work with the venue coordinator and DJ to keep your timeline moving.
And if no one knows the Cupid Shuffle, I'm your built-in instructor!
A full-day 8 hour package will start with getting ready and end with the party, and includes an engagement session and edited digital images.
