Every piece of my process is an essential step in telling your story, beautifully.
the experience you're looking for
You want photos that feel natural, timeless, like slices of life that the mind's eye itself pulled out of the moment and translated onto the page.
You want images that not only tell your story authentically, but you want to look effortlessly beautiful. For what other day do you have an entire team working to bring your vision to life, so you can float down the aisle like a goddess towards the person you plan to spend your life with?
My creative process brings you the exact experience you seek.
I put a big emphasis on getting to know my couples, and you are no exception. So we'll start by getting to know each other - the modern way
(via video chat)
Taking on a limited number of weddings each year allows me to provide the level of customer service that you deserve. It is for this reason that I recommend booking as early on in the planning process as possible.
The images you will receive from your wedding will take you right back to each and every blissful moment. And finally, we'll preserve your legacy through print with your heirloom wedding storybook.

So that's where we begin on the wedding day
Your wedding day details will receive special attention in the morning, after I arrive on-site at your bridal or groom's suite. I will gather your invitations, flowers, jewelry, and other small details and style them out beautifully. This not only tells the story of your meaningful heirlooms, but it also is a beautiful introduction to the day in your wedding album.

Intimate and emotional
The getting ready portion of the day is one of my favorites. Spending time with your innermost circle, getting pampered and popping an ice cold bottle of Veuve Clicquot (or two). Savoring the moments with your best people before the all-important walk down the aisle. Excitement and joy mixed with a few nerves and a couple of mimosas. There's no other time like it.

The moment you've dreamt about
Seeing each other for the first time on the wedding day is one of the most anticipated moments. Whether you're waiting for the walk down the aisle, or you share an intimate moment together beforehand. The first look is sure to be an emotional one.

Before the big day..
The engagement session serves multiple purposes. It's where I get to learn the way you laugh at all his great jokes, and the way he looks at you like you're the only person in the room.
It gives you an opportunity to pamper yourself before getting all dressed up for a romantic night on the town with your fiancé, focusing all your affection towards each other.
And it provides you with the warm-up needed to let your guard down while being photographed, knowing that I've got your back.
So when I arrive on the big day it feels like I'm a friend with a camera.
Amazing capture of not just the images, but of the connection between couples. I love her vision!
