I'm here to make sure your wedding day, however small or large, is just that, yours. How you want your wedding day to look and feel matters, and it's entirely up to you. What are your priorities for how you spend your time? What's most important to you? I'm here to help make sure that's exactly what happens, and capture all the moments that result from it. My main focus on wedding days is to capture as much candid, naturally occurring moments as possible. Those are the moments that will reignite memories when you see them down the road. Those in-between moments you're likely to forget over time. Especially when it comes to elopements and intimate ceremonies, so much of your day is free to make it exactly what you want. Whether we hike to a mountaintop, go to the courthouse on a Tuesday afternoon, celebrate in your family's backyard, or have a massive party, I want to capture your love. Because your life matters, and you deserve photos that reflect it.

a space for your memories to live

When my husband and I were planning our wedding, one thing I knew I really wanted was a special place to store the polaroids from our entire experience. I knew I'd be taking them on our drive out there with our dogs, during the week with our friends and family, the wedding day itself, and all that would come after. I wanted somewhere I could store these, and continue to add to as our life together progresses. All starting with our wedding. Something we could have our guests write notes in, something we could jot down memories in or add ticket stubs or special mementos into as well...almost like a living scrapbook. And then I found these albums. I fell in love with it immediately. It's entirely handmade by a small business creative in the UK, and is a blank slate inside to make your own. I knew right away I wanted to start getting these in the hands of my clients. So my 2024 packages have a couple options that include them, or you can add  it on! I'll start it off with the polaroids I take on your wedding day, and then mail it to you for you and your partner to add to and make your own over the years to come...❤️

frequently asked questions

I've been shooting weddings since 2017, and have been a full-time photographer since 2019.

I do not put a limit on the amount of photos I deliver. I generally say to expect anywhere from 50-100 per hour. But it greatly depends on the flow of your day, and whether I'm able to focus on shooting candidly or being pulled in different directions to do XYZ. Regardless, it's a lot!!!

You are guaranteed access for 30 days, however they'll stay active as long as possible. I simply guarantee the 30 days in case the gallery company changes their policy. Currently my galleries are set to unlimited access. 

No. You are hiring me not only for my expertise in shooting, but also editing. If you've hired me you understand that you will be getting only the edited photos that I release to you. And I promise, I deliver all the possible photos. The only ones I don't deliver are duplicates, ones that were blurry, someone walked in front of the camera, etc. 

Once the retainer has been paid and contract signed, the only other requirement I have is that your wedding be paid in full 2 months before your big day. However, I'm very flexible, and am happy to suit your needs. Some of my couples opt for a payment plan of 3-4 payments split up evenly over the months before your wedding. Some pay a little every month, some pay in one lump sum at the 2 month mark. Whatever works best for you is what we'll do! Please let me know if you have a preference and make sure to review your contract for details.

My retainer is $1,500 for any wedding or elopement package. The retainer is paid to hold your date and is not refundable. This is due to the fact that I am turning away other paying clients for that date once you have booked your wedding as well as starting to work for you from that point on.

I do not work off shot lists, with the exception of the family formals list. I've tried it before, and believe me, you don't want me working off a shot list. When that happens, my focus isn't able to fully be on capturing your day to the best of my ability and using my best judgement and expertise. It's focused on checking off this list so I don't leave you upset. It also means your focus is more ensuring "perfect photos" than on enjoying your day and being present in the moment. I ask my couples to trust me and allow me to do what I do best and capture your precious moments the way I've worked and practiced so hard to do!

Absolutely! If you're looking for certain types of vendors, feel free to ask me for my recommendations any time after you've booked with me. I may not have a list to recommend for every type of vendor, but I'll do my best to guide and advise you to the best of my ability! 

No, you don't need one. However, for weddings larger than 150 guests, I do recommend one. It's nice to get more of your guests captured. And even for elopement or smaller wedding days, it's nice to have another artistic viewpoint. So if it's in your budget, it's a nice extra to have. 

Shew, I get this. Wedding photography is pricey for a lot of reasons. As small business owners, photographers are responsible for not only shooting and editing, but also every aspect of running and maintaining a business. I also need to be able to buy new equipment (editing software, computers, cameras, lenses, flashes, and more), pay an accountant, have liability insurance, pay income taxes, hire second shooters, maintain a website and gallery site, deal with credit card fees, and much more. I'm not going to list it all out because there's so much that goes into it! On top of that, this is what I do for a living, so I also have to be able to pay myself a livable wage! A lot goes into this business baby of mine, but I'm so grateful to be able to do it, and to be able to gift you with images that will last you a lifetime in the end! I promise it's worth it! 

I completely understand wanting to see a full gallery from photographers. And while it is pretty common for photographers to send these out when asked, I do not. I personally feel very strongly that my clients privacy is a priority. I share very large previews on my gallery page, but the full size galleries are significantly larger. I know I wouldn't want a stranger viewing all the intimate moments of my own wedding day so for that reason, no, I do not share full size galleries. If you are really interested in seeing photos from a specific venue I've worked at, you're welcome to ask and I will check with a client to ensure they're comfortable with it, but it's up to them! 

I currently live in Salisbury, MD with my husband and our two dogs, cat, and gecko! I am also partially based out of Colorado and currently not charging travel fees to Colorado. I am open to traveling anywhere for a shoot though, and will include travel estimates in any prices I send. My husband and I own a converted sprinter van we can travel in and live out of, so I'll utilize that as often as possible to save my clients money on hotels!
