Elopement packages are available for Monday - Friday dates.

WEDDINGS - $2200


ELOPEMENTS - $900

PORTRAITS - $400

Life is made up of seasons. Some are wonderful, vivid, and bright. Some seasons are a bit harder than that though. Regardless I think that all seasons of life are important and deserve to be documented. Trust me you will be happy you have those photos in the future. Even the photos from the hard times, so you can look back and see how far you have come and what you have endured. The point is that photography is amazing because it can transport you back and remind you how you felt in that season. 


 are unafraid to be uniquely their own, and want photos that represent them. They want a photographer that is a creative artist, and doesn't only snap moments as they happen. They aren't afraid of a little adventure. 

My current season looks a little like constant hustle pouring all kinds of love into my business, and spending all my free time adventuring and taking photos of this amazing world and all it has to offer. So what does your current season look like for you? Maybe your engaged and ready to start a new season hand in hand with the love of your life. Or maybe you want to work towards self confidence and self love. Or a new business venture. Or overcoming an obstacle. Reaching a goal. And so many more reasons for a photo session!

Look Around + Contact Me

Choosing the right wedding photographer is SO important. Wedding days fly by quicker than you imagine and wedding photos are one of the few things that remain once the day is done. These photos will hang on your wall, your album will become a family heirloom you look at to remember the magical day. I have filled my website with loads of information in the hopes that it helps you with this decision. So take a good look around. First (obviously), make sure you love the photos. Check out the portfolio section, as well as the blog. Then check out the about me section - trust me this is important. I will be spending a lot of time with you, and we should get along! Then make sure to contact me using the contact form!

Once you contact me I'll send you all the info you need including a detailed pricing guide and a few questions to get to know you. I want to hear about #allthethings. It's so important to me that I am the right photographer for you since beautiful, genuine, creative photos stem from an amazing experience. So throughout this process there will be a couple questionnaires involved so I can get to know you better and serve you as best as possible. After this let's meet up - whether it's digitally via Facetime, or meeting up locally for tea, cupcakes, - or even a Margarita. We'll chat all about your plans for your big day.

Make It Official + Pop The Bubbly!

So the boring part first - let's make this official. But don't worry, I've made this part (almost) as easy as checking out with Amazon Prime. I'll send you an online booking proposal through email where you can view all of the details of your collection. You'll have the option to add any add - ons like extra hours or an album! This is also where you will sign the contract and pay the booking fee (30% of the total). Once the boring part is out of the way, let the fun begin! Yay!!! Next I will send you my custom guides with helpful info moving forward, and then we will start planning your engagement session!

Your Engagement Session!

There's a reason a complimentary engagement session is included when you book! It's SO important for us to get to know each other, and for me to be able to get you comfortable in front of my camera before the big day. Let's shake away those photo nerves. The guides I sent before will help with outfit choices, location ideas, and more. We will start two hours before sunset and spend over an hour taking photos. If you bring your dog I will be even happier! Don't worry - you will do great and if you let it, it can be a lot of fun! Everyone starts off a little nervous - but by the end you will feel like a pro! I will teach you everything! Afterwards, your session will be featured on the blog and you will receive a gallery of your images!

Wedding Planning

As your wedding day gets closer, I will be sending you a questionnaire that will help us finalize all the big + little details. Everything from the photos you want, groupings for family photos, and so much more. I will help you make a final timeline so you can get the most out of the time that I am there, as well as help things run as smoothly as possible. I want you to be able to have the photos of your dreams and creating a timeline together makes sure there is enough time to do that! All the details will be figured out so you can walk into your wedding feeling confident and be able to fully enjoy your special day!

Wedding Day!

The day you've been waiting for, is finally here!!! Your day is going to go by so fast, so it's my priority to capture all of the important moments - posed and candid.

I will be setting up and capturing the traditional photos that every couple wants, as well as documenting the moments in between like the laughter and the tears. Don't worry I have you covered, we are ready to capture all your beautiful memories from the smallest details to the biggest moments, so you can look back and reminense for years to come. You may get your photos back and realize moments were captured that you didn't even know happened!
