Wedding day photography isn't one size fits all

Whether you're planning to elope, planning a wedding with ALL the things or anything in between, you will want fantastic photography with a photographer who cares about you and your needs to capture your special memories of the special day.



customizing your wedding package

I don't like one size fits all packages when it comes to wedding day photography.

I want to help you customize your wedding package to fit your needs and budget.

The basics are below but we can email, facetime, call, zoom or meet in person to discuss exactly

how we can work together to customize a package that will meet your needs and desires

for your wedding day, give you beautiful professional quality images while staying in your budget.

I only accept a certain number of weddings per year. I do this to ensure that I can give you the service and attention that you deserve before, during, and after your special day.


Complimentary Engagement Session

Every couple that books their wedding day with me will receive a complimentary engagement session. Why? Because it's a good time for us to get to know one another a little better before the big day. You learn how I interact with couples, how I handle posing (what do we do with our hands anyway?, I get a chance to show you I am going to help you feel less awkward, look natural, and feel great so you have no nerves (at least about pictures) on the big day!

While I am confident that I can capture your day adequately solo I would still recommend adding a second photographer to your package. The reason being that another photographer can help ensure that the photography portion of your day runs as smoothly as possible.
