WELCOME!

I am so excited you’re already in this stage of your wedding planning! You must have looked at my work and made a connection to it, and envisioned you and your love in my photos together. There is honestly no better compliment than I could get than a couple trusting me to capture their love story beautifully and fiercely. But first things first, we have to be a great fit because you deserve someone who is going to be there for you all throughout your planning process to the day of your wedding and even after your wedding is over. I want to be more than just a photographer for you.

What does this mean? It means you’ve got to be okay with me capturing all the real, authentic, and messy moments. That you’ll let me document the perfectly imperfect, the moment you’re there for and the ones you miss. I want to capture it all for you. I want to capture your crazy windblown hair across your face and tear drops as you say your vows, your first look reactions, your mother helping you get ready for your big day, your grandma getting it down on the dance floor, and so much more. I want to capture the big moments and the little ones.

I want to capture it all, and I want to be more than just a photographer or another vendor at your wedding. I want you to feel like I’m your BFF by the end of your biggest adventure so that I can capture you for who you really are and your love story from the outside in and the inside out. Thank you so much for considering me to capture your love story.

Now… let’s do this  thing!!

Q & A

 
How do we begin the booking process? 

To reserve your wedding date with me, I require a signed contract and a non-refundable $500 deposit.  We will meet for coffee first to make sure we are a perfect fit for each other, and will go from there!

 
How do payment schedules work?

A $500 non-refundable deposit is required at the time of booking to hold your wedding date. The remaining balance is due 30 days prior to your wedding. I accept all major credit and debit cards, cash, checks, and Venmo. Payment plans can be arranged - just let me know if that’s something you’re interested in. 

 
Do you help in the planning process?

Yes, of course! I book a limited number of wedding per month so I can dedicate all my time and attention to my couples and help with the planning process along the way. I send my brides a welcome magazine that includes all my recommendations with planning, preferred vendors, and more! It’s your day, and I am here every step of the way!

 
How many images are included? Do we receive all of them?

Of course! At a minimum for weddings, I deliver at least 500 images. The number of images you’ll receive will depend on how many hours you book me for. I include all the images for weddings, and don’t leave anything out besides the photos that are blurry, mid-blinking, or unflattering. 

 
Can we receive the RAW images?

I do not give out RAW images because editing is half the process (and magic) that goes into images, and part of this process is my editing style and vision. When you hire me as your photographer, you’re trusting me with this process to deliver the best images to you! 

 
When should we expect to receive our wedding gallery?

Final wedding galleries are delivered within 4-6 weeks. I do post a sneak peak of 10-20 images within 3-7 days of your wedding date so you have a little something while waiting on your final wedding gallery.

 
DO YOU TRAVEL?

YES YES YES! I’m a lover of travel and am always seeking my next adventure. Traveling anywhere worldwide to document your love story would be my honor, seriously. If you’re a few hundred miles away or even thousands, I’d love to capture your love story. Even if it means I have to travel halfway across the country or globe to get to you.

 
how much do you charge for TRAVEL?

Every wedding and session is different, which is why I give a custom quote for travel costs for every wedding outside of St. Louis, MO. I will travel up to 75 miles from St. Louis with no travel fees. Reach out to me and we can figure this thing out together! I will give you a custom quote for travel costs and will include it in your total package price.
