Forever and ever amen.
This is it. You’ve found the person who you want to be around even when you want to be alone and I think that’s real special.
I’m all about capturing genuine connections and real moments. There's nothing better than marrying your best friend and I want to be there to capture not only the way it looks, but the way it all feels.
I’m about togetherness and all of the authentic moments that are unique to your love.
You know that feeling you get when you just kinda glance at the person you love and you get a little rush to the head? I’m about that too.
I want to photograph you as you are wether that’s quirky and playful or affectionate and still. Nothing too stiff or uninspired. Except for family photos-- let's be real you gotta have those posed fridge photos with the fam and with each other. Those images are timeless and will never go out of style.
The truth is that I want to be there with you every step of the way when it comes to your wedding. This ain’t my first rodeo, but it is yours. From planning a timeline to deciding on a first look I am here to guide you.
If you are madly in love, laid back, and not afraid to of a little dirt on your dress or wind in your hair then we are perfect for each other. When it comes to photography I’m not just another vendor— I want to know you and connect with you that way our time together is sincere and familiar. I am totally invested in what I do and your story so cultivating friendships is something that I strive for. Our connection will help me to tell your story in a more honest and beautiful way.
Marriage is a big deal.
Love is a big deal.
Let’s make some magic.

stuff to know
(that you probably didn't know you needed to know)
What is your shooting style?
Non-traditional, artistic, and intentional. I like to keep a documentary/photojournalistic style meaning that I am always looking for real moments and genuine reactions to capture. However, i'm always down for a good moody portrait or editorial-esque pose.
How to book:
To secure your date all you need is a signed contract and a paid non-refundable retainer of 50% of your package total. The remaining balance is due 30 days before your wedding day. Payments can be made by check or bank transfer.
What is Zelle?
It's basically Venmo, but through your banking app! Find Zelle in the mobile banking app of our partners. If you already have your banking app on your phone, there's no download necessary. If your bank or credit union doesn't offer Zelle yet, just download the Zelle app to get started.
Engagement sessions come complimentary with every booked wedding. Why? Great question! Aside from getting awesome photos, engagement sessions serve as a way for us to work together/ get to know one another before your wedding day. Being in front of the camera can be a bit awkward at first, especially if I feel like a stranger to you, so these sessions are a great way to break the ice!
Engagement sessions cannot be swapped out for a second shooter, but they can be swapped out for a bridal session or an additional hour of wedding day coverage. Sessions are available Monday-Wednesday and begin 1.5 hours prior to sunset. If week days are not an option engagement sessions can be scheduled on a weekend for an additional $250.
Hours are continuous and can not be split up. The most popular coverage time is 7 or 8 hours, but extra coverage may be added for an additional cost.
Can we have all of the photos you take include the raw, unedited images?
No siree! I promise to deliver only the best of the best images from your big day. You'll get 500+ photos depending on the size of your wedding, amount of details, number of formal family photos, etc.
As soon as I get home I back everything up in at least two locations and I always keep the images on my memory cards until delivery. I also always carry backup gear to your wedding. Speaking of gear, i'm a Canon gal incase you were wondering. (but you probably weren't)
I love to travel! If your wedding is more than 90 miles roundtrip from 78758 there will be a travel fee of $1/mile plus an additional $150 if 1.5+ hours from Austin. There is a flat rate travel fee of $750 for stateside weddings and $1,500 for international weddings.
What is a first look?
I'm real glad you asked. A first look is a private moment between you and your bride/groom (and me of course!) before the ceremony. That's right-- the first time you see each other on your wedding day doesn't have to be when one of you walks down the aisle. There are 500 good reasons to do a first look, but i'll give you two.
1. Time- the time you get with each other on your wedding day is practically doubled when you do a first look. You are marrying your absolute best friend, so why would you want to spend all that time before the wedding away from them? Plus if you do a first look you won't have to share them with all of your guests until after the ceremony. Once the ceremony happens the rest of your wedding goes by with lightening speed. Seriously. Blink and it's over.
2. Photos- first looks are a lifesaver when it comes to a photography timeline. Instead of spending 1.5 hours after your ceremony taking alllll of those formal wedding party and family photos, opt for a first look and get 90% of that done before the ceremony! And the best part-- more time for photos of just you and your love. The only photos left post-ceremony are those larger family groupings which means that you can get to partying with your guests sooner. I'll just be sure to steal you away for about 20 minutes of sunset photos. Golden hour is the best hour, trust me!
Although I am completely capable of photographing weddings on my own, I always enjoy having a second photographer. A second shooter is there to capture moments and details needed when my attention is on you. Having another perspective of the day helps to tell your full wedding story. For example, while we are taking your family photos post-ceremony the second photographer can be capturing your guests at happy hour! (I meant cocktail hour, but typed happy hour so I'm going to leave that in there because LOL). If your wedding will be 100+ guests and/or you are not planning on doing a first look then a second photographer is highly recommended.
I have photographed a lot of weddings so the list I use is more of a mental checklist. The only lists I work from are ones made by the bride and groom for family photos.
Digital mages are hosted in an online gallery where you will be able to download, print, and share your images. USB's are also available for purchase.
Engagement/bridal sessions are typically delivered within two weeks and weddings are delivered in 4-6 weeks.
Why do I have to pay taxes?
