I am taking on a limited amount of weddings in 2024. Dates will be available Feb. 1st on a first come, first served basis.
I believe in the sacredness of your day.
Weddings are precious... You are saying yes to forever with your favorite person in the whole world. As someone married to their best friend, nothing gets me more excited for you than that alone because it's the best! I've been on your side of the planning, so I want to make it the best experience possible for you by giving you all the timeline tips, wedding day tricks, and making the photography part as easy as possible.
Every couple and wedding day is unique! I'm a huge romantic with a passion for good indie-folk music and a heart for people marrying their soulmates. I love capturing genuine emotion and couples who are head over heels for their best friend. I love the fast paced nature of wedding days and the thrill of the brevity of a moment. Weird lighting situations don't scare me, and neither do any pushy family members or grumpy bridal party members. I've seen it all and I love the unique twist each wedding day brings.
The day isn't about me. It's about you. I do my best to not draw the attention away from you two on your wedding day while I'm snapping pics of your first kiss or snagging a photo of the groom dancing in the corner with his grandmother. I'm a firm believer in not taking you away from your reception for photos unless we have to, because, well, it's your party and you shouldn't miss a moment of it. At the end of the day, you walk away with a marriage you'll invest in for the rest of your life, your memories, and wedding photos. The most important part is your marriage, so you can bet that I'm gonna do what I can to help you focus on that. As a wedding photographer, I'm just along for the ride and happy to help you where I can.
With me third wheeling one of the best days of your life, photos are the least of your worries. I'll take good care of you - you just have to show up and be in love.
It's about intentionality.
I only take on a limited number of weddings every year because client interaction & experience is such an important part of the equation for me.
I view it as a privilege to be invited into the intimate, emotional, joy-filled and sometimes crazy moments that make up someone’s life - especially their wedding day. I try to approach every interaction with my clients and their guests from that place of respect and reverence. The process leading up to your wedding day with me is very intentional, and I want to get to know the two of you on purpose and showcase that in my work. Your wedding day only happens once, so you deserve the best experience!!
A good photographer understands that you’re not a professional model, you’re surrounded by dozens of people you might not have seen in years, and that you’re about to make the biggest vow of your life. I want you to feel comfortable, relaxed, and able to enjoy your wedding day even amidst your potential anxiety about photos. I want to pour into you and your wedding day, so I limit the number of weddings I take on in order to do it fully, freely, and authentically.
Memories are fleeting, but wedding photos last forever.
Everyone's wedding day is completely unique, so I offer a variety of wedding day packages for my couples. Each package includes day of coverage, timeline planning, professional image processing and editing, a personalized USB drive, & more.

How it happens:
Think you're ready to book?? Head on over to my contact form and fill it out! Before we can move forward, you'll definitely need a date (so I can make sure I'm available) and a venue location to make sure I can travel to you. The more details you give me in the form the better I can serve you!
After you submit your contact form, I'll send you a pricing brochure where you can review what I offer. We can start out by having a video chat, where I’ll ask you about your love story - where did you meet and what you envision for your wedding day, You spend a TON of time with your photographer on your wedding day, so it's important that we jive together!
Now the fun begins! Once I hear back from you, I'll send you a proposal with your custom quote and contract. To consider your date booked, I need the contract signed and the 50% retainer paid. Then your date is off my calendar and BOOKED!! Then the celebrating and planning begin. :)
Where are you based and do you travel?
I'm a wedding photographer based in Kennesaw, Georgia but I shoot weddings & portraits all over the place! Shooting Catholic weddings is my passion, and there aren't too many Catholic wedding photographers down here in the South, so I'm used to traveling around for weddings. I do limit the number of out of state weddings I take per year! Depending on your location and wedding package, I may charge a traveling fee.
How do travel fees work?
My basic wedding package includes travel within 50 miles roundtrip of Kennesaw (aka driving distance). From there I charge on a per mile basis! I do love to get to see new places though, so I'll travel to places like Augusta GA, Birmingham AL, Greenville SC, Asheville NC, and Knoxville TN. I've even shot a wedding out in Costa Mesa, CA so honestly nowhere is too far.
Do you offer video in your packages?
No I don't - Video is something I rather leave to those who are really good at it! I know some great videographers though, so ask me for recommendations.
Are physical wedding albums available?
Yes of course! There's nothing better than a physical wedding album (besides maybe the actual marrying your best friend part). I offer wedding albums through the print store built into your gallery.
Who is your favorite kind of couple to work with?
Ooh - my favorite kind of people to photograph are the best friends who fell in love. The couple that cherishes each other, who enjoy being romantic, and who don't mind a little PDA while I'm around. Bonus points if you absolutely trust me and my vision ;)
Will you give me the RAW files?
I deliver high-resolution (print ready) images in JPEG format with all final edits applied. Since RAW is a file format that computers can't open and process without a particular editing software, I do not deliver the RAW files before post production. Just like you wouldn't want a wedding cake that's just raw batter you don't want the RAW files either, trust me! As a service to you, nothing is left unfinished.
Acrylic USB Drives
These USB drives are a sure way to make sure your photos never get lost. I only keep your full wedding gallery online for two years. I know clients forget to download their galleries, so this gives you an easy and beautiful "back up".
Included in Wedding Packages
These gorgeous heirloom wedding albums are my absolute favorite item that I offer to my couples. There is nothing better than experiencing your wedding over and over again in a gorgeous personalized album.
Starting at $750
Polaroid Wedding Photos
Have you ever heard of a more fun way to immediately take home wedding photos? I didn't think so! Throughout your wedding day, we'll be snapping polaroid pics and at the end of the night, you'll take them home in a personalized walnut wooden keepsake box.
Starting at $350
