Let's go

You are engaged! Let me offer you my most sincere congratulations. Engagement is such a beautiful, blissful time in a person's life. I got engaged in February of 2019 and it was the BEST.

I know you've got a million and one details to think about for your special day, and you want it all to be perfect. Just remember -- no matter what vendors, cake, flowers and decorations you both decide on, at the end of the day, you're marrying the love of your life, and it will be beautiful. I hope, after reading this, it confirms that my style, skills and personality are the perfect fit for you, and that it helped you breathe a little easier.

I specialize in destination weddings + elopements.
Whether you want to have a big ol' party close by, escape to Hawaii to elope on the beach, or hike into the mountains for an intimate ceremony with your closest family members, I'm down. My photography style is intimate and dramatic, filled with genuine laughs and tender, quiet moments. I love to capture rich colors, warm tones, and moody light.  On your wedding day, I will bring a calm and relaxed presence into the environment, while still being incredibly efficient with the timeline so the day runs smoothly.  I love blocking out plenty of time for capturing all the little details that you devoted so much attention and time to, and getting portraits of you and your partner together is top priority. I also love capturing the par-tayyy at the end of the day, and shooting cool light trail shots while you dance your butt off with your friends and family.

Let's be real, having total strangers photograph such an important event in your life can make anyone feel a little uneasy. One special thing about my business is that I prioritize time with my couples prior to the wedding day, to ensure you feel totally comfortable around me. Before you book, we'll get to meet over video chat to ensure we're a good fit for one another, and once you secure your date, we'll set up a coffee date to plan out your timeline, and set up your engagement session -- plus, I'll be available via text message if you have any questions or ideas!
On your wedding day, my team and I are not just going to be shooting, we'll be your personal cheer squad. We will help with whatever we can -- even get you snacks or hold your dress while you pee if that's what you need.
We also may break out some truly terrible dance moves before heading out.
Fair warning.

MY SPECIALTY

MY GOAL

YOUR WEDDING IS WORTH IT

Engagements are the best way to get comfortable with having your photo taken by me before your big day. Not to mention, it's a heck of a lot of fun!
My goal when doing your engagements is not to just take some cheesy posed photos, my goal is to make it an adventure that the two of you remember forever!
Whether you want to go hiking and make out under a waterfall or hit up downtown Nashville and share drinks at the bar, anything goes for your engagement session -- it's all about YOU, and your individuality as a couple.

Also, pleeeaase use this time to gush about all the cute details of your love story. I'm a sucker for it!

ENGAGEMENT SESSION

Receiving your wedding images should be a personal + special experience. With your personalized heirloom box, that's what you get!

These bad boys are included with every wedding package. Inside your beautiful, engraved box, you'll find a wooden USB drive of your images, a print release so you can order as many prints as you like, a special card + gift from me, information about your online gallery, and fifty 4x6 prints from your special day! Choose from five different stains,  add gold or silver inlay to your engraving, or upgrade to the deluxe heirloom box  (includes two wine glasses, my personal fave bottle of wine from a local winery, 100 prints, your flash drive + an extra special gift from me)

Just my way of saying, "From the bottom of my heart, thank you for booking with me. I wish you all of the happiness in the world."

HEIRLOOM BOXES

How long will it take to get my images back?

Do you back up my photos?

Do you have equipment for shooting in dim reception light/nighttime?

How much are your travel fees?

Can I opt out of hiring a second shooter?

Can I opt out of the heirloom box?

You will receive a sneak peek within 2 weeks of your event, and the full gallery will be delivered no later than 10-12 weeks from your date. Heirloom box delivery times may vary.

All weddings/elopements taking place further than 2 hours away from my home will be charged 56 cents/mile, plus a $350 fee to cover hotel and food stipend for my team and I.
All weddings further than 8 hours from my home will be charged (at most) $1500 to cover airfare, hotel and food stipend for my team and I. * For elopements that do not need a second shooter, flight cost for one person will be subtracted. *

Elopements/Intimate weddings that have under 25 attendees can opt out of a second shooter! For any weddings with more than that, a second shooter is a non-negotiable part of the package, because it enables me to be in two places at once, without missing a single moment.
It's an invaluable addition to every wedding!

Yes! You can opt out of this and it will take $100-$150 off your box depending on which box you order! In this case, you'll just receive all of your images in a password-protected online gallery

I only shoot with the highest-rated equipment from Nikon and am well-equipped for all possible lighting scenarios, including nighttime flash portraits.

When I photograph your big day, before ever taking a card out of my camera, I send a copy of all of the raw files to an iPad via WiFi. Then I cull through your images on my computer to pick the ones that will be edited and delivered to you (this process eliminates unnecessary shots that won't be used -- like, if someone blinks in the photo) and save three copies of all of the culled raw images to my computer, and two external hard drives. After editing, your online gallery will be delivered, and I will save a ZIP file of your raw files and edits onto my external drives, and they will be deleted from my computer.
