memories are made in the margins

THE EXPERIENCE

Let the day flow naturally, candidly, unfussily. I’ll be beside you, guiding the way. Ensuring that your minutes are stretched and your connection is captured.

HONEST

Photojournalistic

Effortless

Adhering to the real and raw emotions that make even those who are uncomfortable in front of a lens at ease. Throwing out the age-old tradition of, “Turn to me and say ‘Cheese’” to give a more balanced, natural atmosphere. We aren’t here for the fuss, we are here for the party. It’s the joy of flipping through your gallery and seeing images you had no idea were even being taken. It’s the delight of catching conversations and glimpses happening beyond your scope that you’ll grow fond of. Those are the moments I look for, the honest connections we tend to remember.

I take the approach of documentation, interweaving a mixture of posed and unposed to give you a complete collection of your day. The traditional photos you’ll want to share with family and the images of you participating in the celebration. It is your day, and I want to witness you become a part of it. Not just checking things off a timeline. But actively sharing appetizers during cocktail hour, laughing on the dance floor, and cramming into a photobooth with friends. I’m there to catch all the moments that make your day feel like you; both of you. It is about the experience and the stories that will be shared long after the party ends.

Let’s take a walk after the sun sets. Bask in the soft glow of the warm sun, a few minutes alone, away from the dinner chatter and distant music. Give each other 10 minutes of intimate bliss, the first few in a lifelong to come. I’ll be there, quietly detached, just collecting snapshots while you reminisce on the day so far. Whispered laughter, post-vow jitters, and bubbling excitement. The candid, real emotions are effortlessly captured.

From the moment we initially chat until the day of your wedding, I am planning pieces of your day. Envisioning your style, your poses, the details you have put into place to make sure I capture all of the little moments you will treasure most.

After confirming I have your date available, I will set up a quick call to listen to your vision and the plans you have made so far. We will go through your inspirations and just all around get to know each other. I’ll collect information to create a personalized proposal for you to review.

Once you have the proposal, feel free to contact me with any questions. Once everything looks great, we will move on to a contract going over the details. A signed contract and deposit will effectively “Save Your Date” and then begins the real fun!

FAQ

Yes, I’m available for weddings worldwide! If your wedding is within 2 hours of Washington Twp, there are no additional costs. If your destination is beyond that, all I require is accommodation and/or a travel fee. For specific locations on our bucket list, we even offer discounted/waived rates! View my 2023 travel calendar and bucket list here.

My first love was film photography, but your session and/or wedding day will always be captured digitally using my Canon cameras. Although, you’ll often find me also carrying along my 35mm film or even a Polaroid camera. If you are interested in the nostalgic feel of film photos, and would like to add a roll of film to your Custom Wedding Collection, we can do that.

Yes! I am a registered, licensed, and insured LLC. When researching potential wedding vendors, it’s best to work with businesses that are registered, pay taxes, and have insurance. This way everyone is protected! Let me know if your venue requires a certificate of insurance.

A minimum of eight hours of wedding coverage, a complimentary engagement session, and full printing rights to the edited, high-res images within your private online gallery. There is also an a la carte menu within my pricing guide to further customize your experience. Simply reach out to learn more!

Always! Once you inquire, I send my pricing guide that includes the most popular packages as a base to build off of. No two weddings days are the same, so we will always tailor something custom to what you and your specific day needs.

This depends on the hours of photography coverage booked and how eventful your wedding timeline is! For example, I deliver around 800 photographs per 8-hour wedding.

Don’t worry! I have you covered. My approach to any session is relaxed, fun, and all about letting your personality shine. My posing style is a blend of candid and posed photos, but you'll never have to pose without any direction. Let me know if you have a particular vibe that you’re looking to achieve with your photos!

Of course! I’ve actually created an entire Wedding Handbook complete with tips that I’ve found to be the most helpful to ensure you’ll get the best photos possible! To make sure the day runs smoothly with enough time for all the photos your heart desires, we’ll work together to create your entire photo timeline.

I solely will be able to capture every important moment of your day without missing any “must-takes.” However, I'd recommend a second shooter for weddings consisting of 150 guests or more or if there are multiple photo locations. We will figure this out together during our discovery call!

About 10-15% of your wedding gallery will be black and white, but if you want a heavy emphasis on black and white vs. color then let me know, and I will make sure of it while editing your final photos.

For sessions, you’ll receive them in 3 weeks or less. For your wedding day, your online gallery will be sent to you in 6-8 weeks or less. I share sneak peek photos within a few days and a blog highlighting your wedding day in a couple of weeks.

My ideal clients are passionate people who value honesty, family, and communication. They aren't afraid to have a little fun, either.
