I know every couple has a different story. That's why I strive to create a unique experience for each couple. Pictures are the only way to make time stand still and turn a moment into a tangible memory. It's true that when you look back at a picture, you remember every single emotion you felt in that moment. That is why it is my job to make your experience enjoyable and unforgettable.
You may wonder why I call any type of session with me an experience. I firmly believe that having your picture taken shouldn't be an awkward or painful time. It should be an experience where you have FUN, feel your best, and truly feel closest to your forever love!
My favorite way to get this thing going is to meet with you and answer any and all questions you may have. This meeting can happen before or after you book with me. This also can take place face to face or over Facetime (hello, 2021). I want you to know from the very beginning of this process that I am here for you every step of the way! Meeting face to face with some queso is my fav way to chat, but I am not against meeting somewhere else!
Once your contract is signed, CONGRATS, we're official! I then like to start talking about dates and locations for your ENGAGEMENT sesh. Whether you're recently engaged or have been for awhile now, you're still super excited about that new ring, your new title, and wanting to show them off. Worried about what to wear? Don't worry! I have an entire style guide to prep you and your boo.
Leading up to your wedding day we will be communicating! I will send you a vendor recommendation guide to help guide you in wedding planning, my wedding day guide, and a questionnaire to help plan the perfect timeline for your day. I am also always available to answer any questions you have. All of these pieces make your day flow seamlessly!
Once your big day is over, it's time to celebrate with your honeymoon! While you're away, I'll be editing away on your gallery. You can expect a sneak peek in 24 hours and the FULL gallery in one month. You'll receive your private online gallery where you will be able to download all of your images. The best part? You can share the link with all of your friends and family! I'll also send my top 3 places I recommend you print all of your images.

A first look is a concept that has been around for awhile now! It's where you and your groom see each other before your ceremony. Why? It's an intimate time for just the two of you to take in together. Some couples choose to write their own vows or letters and read them to one another. Another perk is you're able to take ALL pictures before the ceremony so that you're able to go straight to your reception and begin your party with your guests!
WHAT IS A First look?
A second shooter is another photographer who comes alongside me and assists me throughout a wedding day. An extra set of hands, eyes, and feet is always a good thing! They are able to capture different angles throughout your day. Plus, I edit the images they take and add them to your gallery!
What is a second shooter?
My biggest regret when planning my own wedding was not doing a bridal session. This is the perfect opportunity to have a trial run for your hair and makeup, see which accessories you love with your dress, and to wear your dress more than ONCE! I also ALWAYS encourage bridal sessions because it is another opportunity to build a relationship with you. Just you + your dress + your photog!
Why should i do a bridal session?
I remember being so excited and anxious about my own engagement sesh. If you're anything like me, you're going to buy a new outfit, end up not wearing it, and go buy something else the week before. Don't worry, I have an ENTIRE guide to help prepare you for your sesh! I have included so many tips for colors to wear and how to prep your man for your sesh!
WHAT should i wear to my engagement session?
If the first thing you did was reach out to secure your wedding venue, you might have been surprised how far in advance vendors book out! It's never too early to book. I book weddings as far as two years in advance. Don't wait!
WHEN SHOULD WE BOOK WITH YOU?
