east coast wedding photographer

weddings + elopements

My brand of wedding photography is based around authentic moments and all about documenting the joy, the laughter, and the people who traveled dozens/hundreds/thousands of miles to come celebrate with you. I focus on capturing your real personality instead of poses, and when posing is necessary (the ever-important group shots), I'll make it as fun as I can!

While every wedding & couple I photograph is unique, the most important thing for me, no matter the specifics, is always connecting with my couples. I don't want to be just another "wedding vendor" or want you to just be my "wedding couple." I want us to be friends working together towards the shared goal of creating beautiful documentation of an important moment in your lives together, and I want to be a part of your planning process the entire way.

Seriously, I have a handy dandy planning guide. It rocks. And it'll help you be free to go Dougie with Grandma (is this a thing people do? I'm old.)

Basically, you be you and I'll be me. I'll capture your celebration in the most genuine way possible. And we'll be laughing way more than we'll be worrying about where your hands and feet go.

My wedding photography packages start at $2400 with an average investment of $3500. Just get in touch using the form below for full pricing info!

I also love new adventures, so travel fees aren't a thing for me - just tell me where we're going, and I'll meet you there. 

Elopement coverage is available, generally more affordable than my wedding packages, and elopements are my absolute favorite. Since these intimate celebrations tend to have more variables than weddings, I price them on a case-by-case basis, but all ya gotta do is say hi and we can figuring out what would best fit your celebration.

To reach out to me, just say hello right below! Don't be shy, it's just me behind this intimidating-looking form.
