A documentary-style approach

I photograph in a documentary style, telling your story by capturing the details of your day as they unfold, so that you can see the genuine beauty and emotion in each moment.

take a look at the process:

After you submit the contact form we'll set up a call as soon as possible to chat!  I want to hear all of the details and learn what you're excited for in your wedding planning, as well as get to know you as a couple!  I know every couple is different, so I want to know what is important to you in your wedding day experience so I can best serve you!  

We get to know each other



After our call, I'll send you my wedding guide!  This includes my timeline planning tool, engagement session guide, and any other resources we've discussed to help you in your planning. I'm here for you!  

To book, you'll look over everything, sign the contract, pay the retainer, and you'll officially be locked in for your date!  

we make it official

I offer a complimentary engagement session with my wedding packages!  We will work together to decide on the perfect location for your photos.  At your session, of course we will capture some gorgeous photos, but we will also be spending that hour getting to know each other, get comfortable working together, and to allow the two of you time in front of the camera with no stress!  The other bonus is you'll now have some photos of the two of you which you can use for save-the-dates, your wedding guest book, or to display at your reception!

it's engagement session time!

As you're finalizing the details of your wedding day, I'll ask you to send me your completed questionnaire about two weeks before the big day.  This way I can review the special details - your timeline, family photo lists, special moments, family heirlooms, and more - everything I need to know to tell the story of your day!  If you need help with any final details I'm here for you!

final details

It's time for your wedding!!  I'll arrive early to scope out great spots for photos. I'll begin by capturing the special details in a documentary style, then flow into getting ready photos, first looks, and any other special photos we've planned to tell the story of your day.  Throughout the day, myself and my second shooter will help with posed portraits and will also be focused on capturing your wedding as the moments unfold.  Anything you need - just ask!  We want to make this the best day ever!  And if you need anyone to join you in dancing at your reception - I'm your girl ;)

it's party time!

Within 24 hours of the wedding I'll share some sneak peeks!  You can use these to share the excitement of your day online.  

You can expect your final gallery within 4-6 weeks of your wedding day. Here you can view all of your edited, high-quality photos and you can download and share with your friends and family. You can expect 60 photos per hour (but it usually ends up being much more!) From your gallery you can easily order professional prints, gallery-wrapped canvases, and more!
I also offer albums!  I'll have you select your favorite photos in your gallery & I'll design a beautiful heirloom for you that you can pass down for generations.

Wedding Investment

Your wedding photos are worth investing in.  After the party is over, the cake is eaten, and the dancing is done, your photos are what you have to look back on and enjoy the memories of your day for years to come!

not only are you investing in someone who has years of experience, gear, etc.  You're also investing in someone who cares deeply about capturing your memories and making sure you have the best day ever!  

The details on my wedding photography package: 
I offer a full day of wedding coverage, 8 hours. This will include photos of you all getting ready, details, the ceremony, portraits of the bride and groom (including a first look if you’d like, which makes for some fantastic photos!), posed family portraits, reception, first dances, cake cutting, and all the special moments in-between.
 I believe in a documentary style, telling your story by capturing the details of your day as they unfold.  

I'll share a preview of your wedding day photos within 24 hours!

You will receive your own beautiful online gallery where you can order prints, canvases, and even albums.

We'll get to work together before the big day during your included engagement session.

Can we create a custom package?

Yes!  Just fill out the form below & I'll get in touch to schedule a 20 minute call with you!  On your call, we will talk about your wedding day plans & what you are looking for in your wedding photography experience,  We'll work together to easily create the best package that works for your unique day.

Frequently asked questions

Where are you based and do you travel?

I'm based in Hampton Roads, Virginia and I love to travel!!  If it works with our schedule, I'd love to come to you to capture your event - let's chat!

Frequently asked questions

How many photos will we receive?

You can expect around 80-90 photos per hour of coverage.  Every event is different, so I do not place a specific cap on the number of photos. This can depend on the number of events incorporated in your day & hours of coverage.  I'll ask you about all of the important parts of your day during our planning, so we are sure to capture every thing that is special to you and your unique day.    

Frequently asked questions

How and when will we receive our photos?

I know you will want to see your photos as soon as possible.  This is why I will share a preview of your photos within 24 hours!  It is important to me that each photo is perfect - they are all edited by hand and will each be frame-worthy.  4-6 weeks after your wedding day you'll receive an email from me with access to your gallery! Your custom gallery will contain all of your hand-edited photos and you can share it with friends & family.  You can easily download photos to share & can also order prints & canvases direct from your gallery!

Frequently asked questions

Do you offer albums?

Yes!  This is a part of photo curation I absolutely love!  You can either choose to build this in to your package or we can add it on at any time.  I'll send you my album guide where you can customize your book (covers, labeling, & more) and I'll have you select favorites from your gallery!  I'll design your album using your selected photos & share a proof with you before we order.  Your photos deserve to exist in a physical form.  An album is an heirloom piece that you can pass down for generations to enjoy.
