Nostalgic at heart

Appreciates the significance of their family history and living in the moment with their loved ones. You have a soft heart for vintage design and loves the artistry of black & white imagery. Hand-written notes and tangible albums, and heirlooms are important to you.

You have a keen eye for design and absolutely adore fashion. Your style is inspired by one-of-kind pieces and you love adding your personality into the mix. You swoon over designers like Oscar de la Renta and want your wedding design to be timeless but unique.

appreciates quality over quantity

Let me

My approach to photography is more than simply curating, designing, and capturing your best moments. It's about you being present and me blending in, so those photographs are honestly felt and experienced, not just seen.

HOW IT WORKS

MY PROCESS

You deserve a personalized experience and a wedding day filled with everlasting moments. My collections are all-inclusive and include the complete set of hand-edited digital images. Amenities such as florals, beauty team, cinematography, live music, and officiant services are all available to design your collection just for you. One of the many reasons my services set me apart from other vendors. Say hello so I can tailor your wedding coverage and send you a custom proposal. To make sure my couples get the absolute best care and attention, I only accept a limited amount of weddings a year. Please send me a message to share your vision or schedule a call. My tailored collections are designed around your desires. Offerings for weddings vary from couple to couple, so please share your investment range, so we have a starting point.

I

discovery call

The initial call is your chance to share what you envision on your wedding day. This helps me get a sense of how much coverage you'll need, and we'll be able to get to know each other and see if we are a right fit. I enjoy learning about my couples, so share your first date story, your mutual hobbies, how you met, or any fun details about your life. I'm going to be telling your story, but first, I need the prelude.

your wedding

At this point, I will be there for you with helpful guidance and recommendations. We will spend this time fine-tuning your timeline with your wedding planner and ensuring we don't forget about the personal touches. For example, you should make an effort to include sweet surprises or love letters to each other or to include little nods to your love story through food, accessories, and music. I will also start designing a master style board, so we have a clear vision for the aesthetics of your day.  This is the time to start thinking about what is truly important for you at your wedding. 

Today is the day! With thoughtful preparation I will be there to document all the laughter, tears and fun times. Just relax and let your day unfold with all it's beauty knowing that your important occasion is honored on film for generations to enjoy. I aim to over-deliver and give a heart of service which results  in my couples having peace of mind.

After our discovery call, you will be sent a private link with your custom proposal. This will show you all the details of your wedding collection along with ala carte options to custom-tailor your collection to precisely what you desire. You will be able to directly put down your retainer on your proposal and secure your wedding date. I will follow up with a contract and all your final details.

Once your wedding is approaching, usually within a month of the date, I like to set up a coffee or cocktail date. This is a perfect time to run through the final timeline, and it also ensures everyone is on the same page. I understand from experience that thorough planning is the best way to make sure the wedding day is a breeze, and what bride doesn't want that!
