First off, if you're recently engaged, congratulations! This is such an exciting time in your life and I think marriage is the best thing ever.
I'm a big believer in marriage. Call me a hopeless romantic, but I really do believe it can last forever, that it can change your life, that as radiant as your wedding day will be, your marriage will be more.
As a photographer, documenting love stories has my heart. It may seem cheesy, but by investing in me, I'm investing in you. I'll become attached to your story and you better believe, I'll be cheering on your marriage for years to come.
From the moment you book, until long after your photos are delivered, I want this experience to be meaningful for you.
I realize what a weighty thing it is to photograph people (whether that be a wedding day, engagement shoot or anything involving a human being!). It would be silly of me to waltz in on your wedding day without knowing real, honest things about each of you and still be able to create meaningful photos. For this reason, I care deeply about getting to know you through our process together.
You’ve seen the beauty and glory in each other that no one else has. You’ve seen each other at their most vulnerable and at their most impressive. My job is to draw out the connection that is already there.
In order to give each of my couples the quality and care they deserve, I only take on a limited amount of weddings each year! If you invite me into your season, I am committed to capturing your story in the most authentic way I can, leaving space for real moments of intimacy and unparalleled joy.
Needless to say, I would be giddy & tickled & overjoyed if you were one of them.
Wedding packages are customizable based on the unique needs for your day! My most common package includes 8 hours of coverage & your choice of an engagement session or second photographer.
Elopement packages are for small weddings with under 50 guests and include 2-6 hours of coverage. Like my wedding packages, these are fully customizable based on your day!
Engagement sessions are my favorite way to get to know my couples before the day! These sessions are 1-2 hours and offered at a discounted rate for wedding clients. Though engagement session can also be booked on their own!
I do! To reserve a wedding date, I require a 30% non refundable retainer with the full payment due 2 weeks before your wedding date. If you would like to split the remaining amount over multiple payments, that is always an option!
Engagement sessions include a 1-2 hour session, 100+ fully-edited images, multiple outfits and locations. On average my couples usually have 2 outfits for the session and 2 locations. When we book your session, I'll send over a "What to Wear Guide" to help you prepare for your session and choose outfits that compliment you and the location. I want to work with you through the entire process to make sure your engagement sessions are a perfect reflection of you and your significant other!
I shoot digital and deliver all of my sessions via an online gallery. You are welcome to print your photos wherever you like and I will always include some of my go-to places to print upon delivery!
Absolutely! Currently, I'm based out of Duluth, MN, but am often making my way down to the Twin Cities. If your adventure takes you further, I'd love to offer you a custom travel quote. I love to travel, so know that I do whatever I can to make these travel costs reasonable to you!
In ALL of my sessions, I take a natural, candid approach. I love warmth and earthy tones. Natural light and laughter. To put it simply, my heart is to capture moments. I do this through guiding you into poses and movements that help you relax, feel natural, and be your true, comfortable self in front of the lens. I don't use special studio lighting or use stiff poses - it's just not my style or what I do best! However, I will capture beautiful moments with you and your loved ones in a natural, meaningful way.
Ah!! This is such a tough one! Without a wedding date, I really can't guarantee that I'll have the date open once you're ready to book. However, I am happy to book an engagement session with you, and if you decide to book a wedding later, I will happily take off that fee from whichever wedding package you choose. Please reach out if this is the case and we can talk about our options.
