pure and authentic wedding photography

our approach + our beliefs + our process

We focus on capturing the pure love between a couple and their guests on their wedding day through natural posing and authentic shots of emotion and movement. 

From here on after, let's stay the way we are right now and share all the love and laughter that a lifetime will allow.


 – George Strait

remember the details

It is our commitment to not only capture the images of people, but of all the little details you’ll want to remember in the years to come. 

After the cake has been eaten and the dress has been pushed to the back of a closet, pictures remain.

Wedding photography is not one-size-fits-all. If you want joyful, genuine portraits, you need more than just pretty pictures. You need an incredible experience! The first step towards working together is determining if we are the perfect fit for one another! After getting to know you online, we’ll make a date to determine if we are a match made in heaven. 

Our Process


After we fall in love and decide we’re a match, it’s time to “save the date!” I’ll send you a custom online booking proposal where you can review your package and pay your deposit so we can be all officially official.

Once we’re 8 weeks out from your big day, I’ll be in touch! I love creating custom timelines to ensure that you don’t miss out on your dream wedding photos. (You know, all of those dreamy portraits, fun “friend shots”, and detail images that look like they are straight out of a magazine!) 

We will work together to plan your day so that we create the perfect timeline for a photography-friendly wedding day and get the shots you really want.


When the big day is finally here, it’s time for you to celebrate and relax! I’ll get to work! I believe in telling the full story of your wedding day, so I usually shoot for more than 8 hours. This day is going to be a blur to you, but don’t worry. I’ve got you. It is my priority to capture the traditional shots you need, while also capturing the moments in between in beautiful and creative ways.
