THE EXPERIENCE

why invest

YOUR FIRST DECISION AS AN ENGAGED COUPLE IS TO SET PRIORITIES FOR YOUR WEDDING PLANNING. YOU HAVE TO DECIDE WHAT YOU VALUE MOST. IS IT THE DRESS? THE FOOD? THE VENUE? 

AS A BRIDE AND PHOTOGRAPHER, I BELIEVE THAT COUPLES SHOULD MAKE THEIR PHOTOGRAPHY A TOP PRIORITY. AFTER THE BIG DAY IS OVER, YOU WILL LEAVE YOUR RECEPTION WITH A SPOUSE & YOUR PICTURES....THAT'S IT! ALL OF THAT PLANNING AND PREPARATION IS OVER IN A MATTER OF HOURS! SO IF YOU'RE CHOOSING TO INVEST IN HIGH QUALITY PHOTOGRAPHY & CINEMATOGRAPHY, THOSE IMAGES DESERVE A CLASSY, ELEGANT HOME AFTER THE WEDDING. I OFFER HIGH END, LEATHER BOUND SIGNATURE ALBUMS FOR MY WEDDING CLIENTS. THE IMAGES ARE PRINTED STRAIGHT ONTO THE PAGES AND THE COVERS ARE WRAPPED WITH TOP GRAIN LEATHER. 

THIS IS THE PERFECT ENDING TO THE WEDDING EXPERIENCE AND IT'S A KEEPSAKE THAT YOU WILL BE SHOWING YOUR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN ONE DAY!

THE ART OF HYBRID PHOTOGRAPHY

WE ARE HYBRID PHOTOGRAPHERS, MEANING WE TAKE PHOTOS WITH DIGITAL AND FILM CAMERAS. FILM GENERATES A SOFT, ROMANTIC AND ETHEREAL ENVIRONMENT TO EVERY COMPOSITION. IN CONTRAST, DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY PROVIDES CRISP DETAILS, VIBRANT COLORS AND CONSISTENCY IN IMAGERY. PAIRING THE TWO STYLES OF PHOTOGRAPHY TOGETHER BREATHES LIFE TO MEMORIES WITH GRACE AND ELEGANCE WHILE NEVER MISSING A PICTURE PERFECT MOMENT.

our philosophy

I’m sure your mind is racing with all that needs to be planned. It’s all very exciting but it can also be somewhat overwhelming. You’re planning the day that you’ve been anticipating your whole life and yet you only get one shot at it! By the time you get the hang of it, the planning is over! Our goal as wedding photographer’s is to make this one aspect of the planning process simple. Photography is more than just images, it’s a real part of your day. Not only do you deserve beautiful images, you also deserve an amazing photographic experience. When our couples feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera, that results in genuine, joyful images! When I think back to my wedding day, I remember amazing memories.... but most of the moments I remember really well are the instances that were captured in my pictures & film. They are priceless to me. Our photographer & cinematographer made us feel so incredibly comfortable and for the first time, I experienced what it feels like to be in front of the camera as a bride. Your wedding day is an experience from beginning to end and your photography is a huge part of that experience..... shouldn’t it be fun? and enjoyable? and natural? I think so! My goal is to not only capture memories for my clients, it’s to create an experience that they will never forget.

f.a.q.

We are more than willing to travel for engagement sessions! We actually love it when our couples ask us to photograph them in a location that means something special to them! we book engagement sessions at least two months prior to your wedding and 60 miles of travel are included. 



we average 50-75 images per hour that we're shooting. we love delivering our client's files quickly and easily via an online gallery. you will have the ability to print, share and download your images as much as you want. we believe in freely sharing our work because that is what we would want if we were in your shoes!



we are often asked if 8 hours is enough time to capture the full wedding story and the answer is yes! our main goal right now is securing and saving your date. you can always add additional coverage as we get closer to the big day and we'll have a good idea of your timeline. 



we love being interactive and discreet throughout the wedding day. there will be parts of the wedding day when we will need to be in control in order to accomplish everything that needs to be done while staying on schedule. there will also be moments when you shouldn't even know we're there. (the ceremony, during dances and toasts, etc.) we teach our couples how to pose, model and interact during their engagement session so they are naturals on the wedding day and don't need quite as much instruction from us!
