Your nose crinkles up from uncontrollable laughter, your hair moves to the speed of the wind, your shoes have specks of dirt on them, your PDA is at an all-time high, and your heart is as full as it gets.
Let me first just say that if you’re looking for a photographer that captures all posed photographs as you smile and look at the camera, then I’m not your girl. And that’s totally okay!!
I AM your girl if being in the moment is far more important than perfection. I AM your girl if you’re down to roll with the punches regardless of what the weather forecast is. I AM your girl if you’re wanting allll the candid, unposed, and emotion-filled moments captured (YES, I do still get those posed family pictures, and photos of you two to make grandma and mom happy). I AM your girl if you say “screw it” to all the things that may not go as planned, but it doesn’t matter because as long as you two are together, THAT is what counts.
So if you’re down to get your dress a little dirty, laugh a lot a lot A LOT, and get adventurous with me, then my friend, you have come to the right place.
Let's get this date on my calendar!

I get it so much, especially since I have five sisters and watched each of them plan their weddings on a budget. However, I also know that I’m not just a person showing up on your wedding day, taking pictures. I literally invest everything that I am into your day. I take my role so seriously, that most times I end up bustling your dress, fixing grandma’s lipstick, DJ-ing your day, holding your flowers, and making sure YOU TWO are as stress-free from start to finish. I’m not just a photographer. I’m a friend that cares, and cares SO deeply about what is sure to be one of the happiest days of your life. My philosophy? It’s simple. If you make the investment in me? I promise you that I will invest in YOU. I WILL reflect the dollar amount that you pay.
I don’t do what I do for the money. Yes, it pays the bills and puts gas in my car and food on the table, but that’s not what I’m out for. Trust me, I know how tight budgets can be. But I also know that you want to remember your day for the rest of your life, and that is what I am here for. Your investment in me will guarantee you high quality, perfectly curated photographs to keep your special day in your heart forever. I don’t just make up a random price. It is carefully calculated to account for my time and commitment. So let’s invest in each other, and you’ll be glad we did.
I photograph weddings, elopements, adventure sessions, bridal sessions, and boudoir sessions. You can find my collection pricing by inquiring here.
Your wedding day? Yeahhh it’s kinda a big deal. ACTUALLY JK, IT’S ONE OF THE BIGGEST DAYS OF YOUR ENTIRE LIFE like WHAT?!?! I’m your gal if you want a photographer who captures the real, the raw, and the candid. Get allll the details by inquiring with me via my contact form here.
I offer three packages for my weddings. Inquire to read all about what each one offers, and which is going to be the perfect fit for YOU.
Gimme the Details!
Some dream of the big dress, lengthy guest list, and decked out venue. Others prefer an intimate adventure surrounded by picturesque views and a select few loved ones. If the latter sounds like you, then my elopement package may be the perfect fit.
Problem: You long for the wedding photos you see on Pinterest—the ones with backdrops so beautiful they almost look fake. But you’re getting married in your hometown…where picturesque scenery is few and far between.
Solution: Invite me on your honeymoon! (See, I told you I was the ultimate third-wheel :)) You’ll bring your wedding attire, I’ll bring my camera, and we’ll get those Instagram-worthy photos you’ve always dreamed of.
Come On My Honeymoon!
Forget the posed pictures, the inauthentic backdrops, and the studio props that just aren’t YOU. Adventure sessions + Engagement sessions capture you and your love in YOUR environment. Maybe that’s devouring ice cream, taking a stroll along your town’s waterfront, or playing Frisbee on the beach. Or perhaps it’s hiking in the mountains, biking to the farmer’s market, or roasting marshmallows over a bonfire. It doesn’t matter, as long as it speaks to your hearts.
Let’s Start Our Adventure!
LADIES: have you ever had those days where you didn’t feel pretty enough? Skinny enough? Worthy enough? Or even just plain good enough? Most days it feels like we’re fighting a constant, never-ending battle, doesn’t it?
Well my beautiful friend, I’m here to tell you that you are beautiful. Every line, every scar, every blemish, every dimple, every freckle…those are the things that make you, YOU. And you deserve to be celebrated, my love.
Boudoir sessions do just that. We’ll start with a little wine (or whatever drink gets you loosened up and comfortable :)) and get to know each other a bit. You’ll tell me everything you love about your body and I’ll ensure you know just how breathtaking you are, inside and out. By the end of the session, you’ll feel strong, confident, and empowered. And you’ll leave with a renewed sense of self-love.
I Am Beautiful

my PHOTOGRAPHY PROCESS
YOU GUYS!!!! YOU’RE ENGAGED AHHHHHH!!!!!! This is step one in the process to us becoming bffs (or me photographing your adventure session/wedding, but we’ll get to that). To get your special date on my calendar, you begin by filling out the contact form and telling me your story (I want to hear it alllll). In this first step, we establish if we're a good fit, and if we are, we'll move on to our FIRST MEETING (the date we become bffs)!
Okay, let’s get this date in my Erin Condren planner!! I’m ready with my pens, stickers, and all. In this step, we meet up either via Skype, or over coffee, ice cream, wine, etc. (whatever’s your jam), get to know one another better, gush over your love story, and begin this forever friendship of ours. From here, we go over the wedding agreement, and I'll explain what all of the wording means. A minimum deposit of 30% of your payment is due at signing, which is when I put your date down on my planner.
GUYS! It’s our first date together EEEEK!!! We’ll meet at a location that either I help you come up with, or somewhere that is special to YOU, to portray your love story perfectly. I’m going to capture this emotional, beautiful, real, messy, rare, raw love that you two share, and you’re going to feel completely comfortable from start to finish. When your friends see your engagement photos they’re going to say “Omg that is SO THEM!” and THAT my friend, is what I’m interested in capturing. We’re going to jam to some music in the process, and just have the best.date.ever.
LET’S PLAN THIS THING!!! I’m not interested in being one of those photographers that takes your pictures, delivers, then doesn’t talk to you again until the wedding. We’re bffs now, so I want to help you plan your WEDDING DAY! From helping you find other vendors, to cake testing (I like this one;)), to sending me dress options, I’m here for you through it ALL and want to bring this vision of yours to life!!<3 I will also create a custom wedding timeline for your day, so we make sure that everything is scheduled and in place. This will help make your big day stress-free and smooth sailinnn!
WE MADE IT WE MADE IT WE MADE IT!!!! Okay, y’all. This day is YOURS. It is all about you + your love and nothing else matters.<3 Don’t think about the details anymore. I’m going to capture those for you to remember. From the glam shots of your rings, to the tears shared by you + those standing by your sides, to the wedding vows, to dancing the night away. And don’t be alarmed if I’m on the dance floor jamming out with you. ;) I am YOURS for the day, and I’m not going anywhere!! I’m ready to capture your forever so you can relive it over and over again for years to come.<3
the big day
Okay you two lovebirds, the time has come for me to deliver YOUR WEDDING DAY (images) to you!! I have spent countless hours editing your images to perfection and have these high resolution photos in your online gallery ready to be downloaded digitally, so you can have each image forever!! So relive your perfect day, and if you chose to go with my Platinum Collection, then relive them through print as well. Either way, there is sure to be tears, laughter, and endless smiles. And don’t be surprised if I text you asking you to coffee because, ya know, we’re forever friends.<3
I BELIEVE IN | WORDS I LIVE BY
I believe in love. I believe SO fiercely in love, and I’m not afraid to show or say it. I believe in never going to bed angry. I believe that prayer saves lives. I believe in messy buns and dance parties. I believe that without change we will never see growth. I believe that traveling is something everyone needs to experience, and I believe that kissing should have no limit.
Kk now that we’re about to become bffs, it’s time to make things official!!!! Expect me to respond in all caps probably freaking out with some exclamation points sprinkled in there!! I CANNOT WAIT to tell your story through photographs, friend. LET’S DO THIS THANG!!!
