You will put so much thought into the details of your day, the perfect dress, the grand reception, intentional moments with your loved ones. Every wedding holds its own uniqueness and your photos should reflect the joyous weekend you will have, surrounded by your family and friends, celebrating your marriage. You deserve to have someone who will preserve the memories timelessly so they put you right back into the moment.
You Matter to Me
The both of you, and your day mean more to me than I could tell you. Capturing your memories is never something I will take lightly and giving you an elegant, timeless gallery of memories is the most important thing to me.
After you fill out the inquiry form we will set up a time to chat all about your day, the vision you have, and get to know each other better.
You will receive a personalized proposal after our call with options that best fit your needs. You will choose what works best for you and then sign the attached contract and pay the retainer. Once that is complete we will start the planning process.
I will send you photography resources and work with you and your planner to help curate a photography timeline for your day. We will discuss all the details ahead of time to be sure we are well prepared for the wedding so you can just focus on enjoying the day.
It's finally your wedding day! You enjoy and we will be prepared and ready to capture your vision, come to life, and all the sweet moments with your loved ones.
You will receive sneak peeks within 24 hours and your full gallery in 5 short weeks. Once the gallery is delivered we will work on curating your wedding album so it tells the story of your wedding beautifully.
Getting creative with clients for their photography in the engagement or couples sessions is one of my favorite things. There are so many options for these shoots, from destination locations, to shooting at a favorite spot of yours, we will come up with something unique and fun that showcases the two of you.
Over the years of growing my business, I have met some amazing people along the way who I have had the pleasure of photographing in the seasons of their life past their wedding day. Whether it be welcoming their first child, their growing family, business portraits, or anniversaries, these life moments are some of the sweetest. Documenting the lives of past clients and now friends is such a blessing.
A lot of our clients like to have a bridal boudoir shoot as a gift for their soon to be. What you ladies don't realize is that it's actually for you and you will leave feeling gorgeous and uplifted. Shoots happen primarily in the Charlotte area but the option to travel or have the photoshoot during your destination wedding weekend is available.

Do we need more than one photographer?
It really depends on your wedding celebrations. What all is happening, how many days, the guest count and even the logistics of the day. Multiple photographers give more, cohesive perspectives to your wedding day to help tell the full story in a lot of cases. We can discuss all the options on our first call.
Do you travel?
Absolutely I do. I am based in NC but have photographed couples in many other destinations and I would love to chat with you about your destination wedding or photoshoot.
Can we meet before the wedding?
Our initial call is usually over phone or video call if requested and then if you like, we can meet up to discuss details, or do a walk through of the wedding venue property, just let me know on the inquiry call if you would like that.
How will I receive my photographs?
I take into consideration what you would like, whether it is prints, wall art, or an album when we have our inquiry call and build that into your personalized packages. But all couples will receive images on an online gallery that you are able to share, download, and order from the attached store if you desire. The gallery is available to you for one year.
Do you have insurance?
Yes, I am fully insured and can provide your planner or venue with the appropriate forms upon request.
How many photographs can we expect?
This really depends on your day, how many hours are needed, are some of those traveling to locations, and some other factors. On average 80-100 photographs per hour of shooting is what is delivered.
