Frequently Asked Questions
how would you describe your style?
while I don't like to think of my style as "moody" (I love me some gorgeous bright + crisp light!), I do think I have an eye for bold, rich colors and tones in my work. I love understated poses, photojournalistic approach, and expressions of vulnerability but also strength and badassery. I just want you to feel amazing! because you are. and that looks different for each person, so I aim to photograph you in your favorite element - whether that's bubbly and energetic, or quiet and subdued. I love photos that show context and ground you in their time and place, and that's my objective whenever I walk into a shoot.
how do we book you?
for portrait sessions, you can book easily online using the "book online" link in the menu bar! for weddings, get in touch with me using the contact form to let me in on all the details about your wedding, and I'll be in touch with more info about pricing and package options. a 50% non-refundable deposit and signed contract officially books us for your wedding.
what's included in your packages?
every shoot includes all the edited digital files sent to you in your own private, secure online gallery and can be downloaded from there. these images are all curated and edited one by one by me. I edit carefully to ensure perfect skin tones, flattering lighting and colors, and an aesthetic that is consistent with my style and brand. print + album options are also available for additional purchase!
do you shoot all weddings with your husband?
yes! we are the dream team, i tell ya. each wedding package includes two shooters. i shoot all other non-wedding sessions solo.

what do we do if we're super awkward in front of the camera?!
uhh, same here!! I've developed ways of prompting and posing to get the most flattering angles and expressions from people. I am not trying to work with supermodels, I am here for all your real humanity and I will offer plenty of direction, prompting, and space for you to just be you.
by the end of it, you'll look at your photos and think, "ahh, that is so us". (And maybe also, "damn, who is that?!")

for portrait sessions, 7-10 days. for weddings, 4-8 weeks!
