Though we live in bodies affected by time — photos are timeless.

They store memories. They reflect who we are and who we once were. They are feelings, sensations, the people we love. They hold power.

For weddings, once the guests have left, the passport stamped — you want to be certain you will never forget that special day. That’s where I come in. Photography is a lot of things — but ultimately, it’s an investment.

 
 

Photos of how things felt.

Let’s capture the feeling of the day. There’s both a photojournalistic and an experimental approach in my work. We’ll capture a mixture of the big, fun moments but also just as important — the quiet messy in-between ones. It’s about documenting real intimacy, being present, and making art. It’s definitely a vibe.

A guide, a friend, a support system.

I'm the kind of photographer and human being who wants to connect with my couples and families.  You have my promise — I will work my ass off for you. I will cry with you. I will laugh with you. I will truly try to see you and have my photos be your mirror.

Having a background in film, I know how to balance creative expression and the not-so-fun stuff like logistics. From assisting with timelines, to styling advice, to organizing family photos — I’m here to help so we can get to the important stuff. Let’s climb mountains, watch sunsets, boogie on the dance floor now, shall we?

FAQs

Below you will find some of the most commonly asked questions. Please read through and if you are wondering about anything else, don’t hesitate to reach out!

DO YOU TRAVEL FOR PHOTOGRAPHY?

Heck yes! Travel and photography might be my two favorite things in the world. I am passport ready and always down for an adventure. Travel fees may apply and vary depending on the destination.

WHEN WILL WE RECEIVE OUR IMAGES AFTER THE EVENT?

 

The pictures will be ready 10 weeks after the wedding, 4 weeks after the engagement session.

HOW MANY IMAGES WILL WE GET?

 

It varies, but on average at least 75 images per shooting hour with 2 photographers.

DO WE NEED A SECOND SHOOTER?

 

While totally a preference, having a second shooter means you’ll get more photos from multiple perspectives. It is a great option if you have enough people at your wedding to make up a village. I recommend it if you plan on having over 125+ guests.

What do you shoot on?

 

I am a Canon lady. Canon Mark IVs to be specific.

We like what we see. now what?

 

Get in touch! From there, we’ll chat and get to know one another. (kind of like dating…) If we vibe, you’ll sign a contract and pay a 30% retainer to secure the date. Easy peasy.
