why me?

SO FREAKING EASY

Booking your vendors shouldn't be like pulling teeth. I keep my process super simple: Send me an inquiry, sign the contract online, pay a $1,000 retainer online and wait to choose your coverage amount until one month before your wedding. We can literally make things official in less than 30 minutes. Talk about easy, amiright?

 

I ACTUALLY CARE ABOUT YOU
I really care about you. Like REALLY care. Photographing your wedding is not a responsibility I take lightly. I photograph weddings first and foremost to SERVE people. You will be the center of my entire universe at your wedding, and you better believe I will go above and beyond to make your day perfect.

 

FEEL LIKE YOURSELF
Having your picture taken doesn’t have to be awkward AF. I made comprehensive prep guides to get you and your partner in the right mindset for photos by setting clear expectations and offering super practical advice.

 

PHOTOS YOU WON'T HATE IN TEN YEARS

In case you didn't know, wedding photography has editing trends. Whether it's super orange skin, mega desaturated greens or selective color (RIP), they are all going to majorly date your wedding photos. Just like your mom's 80's hairstyle dates hers. I edit in a natural, true-to-life and subtle way that will keep you happy for years to come. I love adding lots of warmth and color to my images to really make them pop and give you those warm and fuzzy feelings.

 

HERE WHENEVER YOU NEED ME

I'm always available if you want to text, email, FaceTime or grab coffee. Even if I'm in the middle of something, I respond quickly with an ETA for when I'll be able to follow up. Having gone through the wedding planning process myself, I know how wonderful it is to get answers to questions quickly. I'm always more than happy to help recommend other vendors, give tips about all things weddings and exchange The Office gifs.

PERFECT MARRIAGE OF RIGHT & LEFT BRAIN

A lot of people get into wedding photography for the creative, lovey-dovey part. I'm maybe 40% in it for that. The other 55% of me is in it for the problem solving, the adrenaline rush and the Type A personality fuel. I am incredibly organized, detail-oriented and calm under pressure. I meet with all my couples before their big day to learn the ins and outs of the entire plan. I create a timeline. I memorize your parents' names. I keep us on schedule. I make back up plans for my back up plans. The final 5% is in it for the cake.

 

LIGHTNING FAST DELIVERY

Did you know that some photographs take MONTHS to deliver your wedding photos? I take only a couple days to send you sneak peeks and a few weeks to deliver your entire gallery. Why wait to relive your wedding??

 

TOTALLY UNOBTRUSIVE

I once had a groom concerned that I didn't come to the ceremony. Funny thing was that I WAS at the ceremony. He just didn't see me! I stay as out of the way and hands-off as possible during parts of the day like getting dressed, the ceremony and reception in order to let moments unfold naturally.

 

EVERY DETAIL CAPTURED
No need to worry about something being missed. I help you make a “don’t miss this shot” list of every little moment so everything important to you is captured. I also include a second photographer in every standard wedding package for another set of eyes on events.

 

FLAWLESSLY NAVIGATE FAMILY DYNAMICS
I take time to learn the ins and outs (and even names!) of each of your families so I’m prepared to navigate my way through anything! I also work with you to create a perfect family photo shot list that is both efficient and thorough.

 

I'M LEGIT

I'm a real registered business. I've been doing this for years. I've seen it all. Like even groomsmen doing keg stands in kilts. I've got you.

"She is a true professional, offering excellent recommendations throughout the planning process and managed to capture every special moment from our wedding without us even realizing she was right there to do so."

questions?

HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL I GET?

I deliver around 100 photos per hour of shooting. That's more than one picture a minute! Most of my wedding galleries have over 1,000 images. My engagement and portrait sessions include at least 100. All images are delivered to you in a custom online gallery you can share easily with family and friends.

 

WILL YOU BE THE ONE PHOTOGRAPHING OUR WEDDING?

Yes! I own my photography business and am the only lead photographer. I do not hire out associate shooters to cover your wedding like some other larger companies do.

 

WHO WILL BE OUR SECOND SHOOTER?

I work with a close-knit group of other wedding photographers in the Houston area. We all second shoot for one another and have experience photographing weddings as the lead photographer. All these people are close friends of mine with a similar shooting style who I know to be professional, dependable, friendly and talented!

 

CAN I SEE A FULL WEDDING GALLERY?

A million times yes! After you inquire, I will send you several full galleries to look through. No matter who you hire, ALWAYS make sure you've seen a selection of full wedding galleries. Just because someone's Instagram is poppin' doesn't mean they know how to photograph every part of the day well.

 

SHOULD WE DO AN ENGAGEMENT SESSION?

This one is easy. Yes! Especially if you're uncomfortable in front of the camera. Think of it as a warm up to your wedding where you have the opportunity to see what works and what doesn't. Engagement sessions are also a great way to showcase your style or your lives together!

 

HOW MUCH COVERAGE DO I NEED?

You don't have to know right now! And how in the world would you even know now?? I don't make you choose your coverage amount until a month before your wedding. I create sample timelines so you can see exactly what you would get for 6, 8 or 10 hours!

 

DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS?

Yes I do! I have photographed weddings in Texas, Georgia, Alabama, Colorado, Iowa and even Mexico! Contact me for detailed destination wedding pricing.

 

HAVE YOU SHOT AT OUR VENUE BEFORE?

I can not stress enough how much this shouldn't be a deciding factor. I have shot weddings on the beach in Mexico, in someone's backyard, in a hotel ballroom, a huge Catholic church and more! Nothing surprises me! I also arrive to all my weddings an hour early to familiarize myself and scout out locations. I'm also more than happy to accompany you on a venue walk-through if you would like!
