Wedding + Elopement Photography

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 and painless as I can!

Every wedding & couple I photograph is unique, but the most important thing for me no matter the deets or who you are 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 $3000 with an average investment of $3900. Just say hi using the form below and I’ll get my full, detailed pricing guide sent your way.

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. 

Custom elopement coverage is available, too - just drop me a note below and tell me a little bit about your plans.

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