Engagement & Weddings

Just below you will find signature wedding galleries, what it will be like working with me and where collections start and what they include…

HOORAY!

A wedding is in your future and you’re here because photography is a priority for you! Obviously it’s a huge priority for me too, as it has been for me since the days we all were in love with friends, gilmore girls and the like!!

Don’t risk any of these things happening with someone that isn’t experienced with 100’s of happy clients!

The day is overflowing with moments to capture! I’ll advise and support you from setting up a wedding day schedule to ensuring the wedding goes as planned and delivering timeless, bright images in a quick turn-around!

Looking forward to talking soon!

Mind still buzzing with questions?

THREE WEEKS! This will be one of the quickest turnaround times you will find! Who wants to wait to see their wedding pictures…they are meant to be shared, and SOON!! Of course, there will be social media sneak peeks as well!

Great question!  You will have the option to have a second photographer.  We can talk through why a second photographer would be a good addition to your wedding or if it’s a place to save money!

OF COURSE! Where are we going? New places are the best! Travel fees will apply and will be billed separately.

NO. I have created the perfect plan for couples in paying for their wedding photography. You will only be asked to put a 25% retainer when you sign the contract. Each month after the contract is signed you will send a monthly payment, up until the month of your wedding. This way you can be a little more flexible in choosing your wedding collection. I am also happy to set up an alternate payment plan that suits your needs.

THIS TRULY VARIES. You know that every wedding is unique, therefore all of the wedding contracts are different. Personally, I really feel like a custom day is the best option for everyone. This is why it is so very important to be able to go through your wedding day schedule together. To obtain a portion of all the day’s events you can plan on at least eight hours and possibly up to ten or twelve.

Let’s connect and create your custom timeline to find out!

Yes!!  All collections include the wedding day digital files.  You will be sent a custom link to your full gallery.  It can be downloaded by you and anyone you choose to share it with. 

Absolutely! Once you download them to your computer for safe keeping, you will be able to load them to your site or lab of choice to create your own prints and products.  You will receive a print release just in case as well.  Along with your images you will be given some suggestions for where to print for quality lasting prints.

Ready to see if we’re a match?

Once you fill out the form, you will receive an email from me in 24-48 hours as some days are busier than others.
