Your wedding day is so special. It can fly by so fast and the next morning you will most likely find yourselves trying to remember it all. Over the following weeks you'll be retelling stories to family members and friends. Photos make it incredibly easier when storytelling. That's where I come in!
From wedding planning to marriage bliss, I'll be by your side. Building your confidence in front of the camera and easing your mind with all the small photography details. My goal is to have the two of you be completely yourselves so that when you share photos from your wedding day, or engagement session, it showcases your authentic, unique and beautiful love story.

Take your time to read this guide. Get a feel for who I am as a photographer and what I can provide for you during the wedding process. Check out the packages, timeline and delivery of photos. Don't ever hesitate to contact me if you have questions!
Let me know if you're ready to chat and I'll send over a questionnaire. We'll set aside time to chat for the upcoming week! A complementary consultation is my way of learning more about your love story. After our chat, I'll send over a customized quote based on your wedding needs and wants along with a contract. When you're ready, you'll accept your quote and sign your contract.
Next is the booking process! A 40% non-refundable retainer fee is required to secure your date. I'll send over an invoice and once the retainer fee is paid, I'll be by your side throughout the entire process!
An engagement session follows. You can pick out the location or I can send you some suggested locations. Engagement sessions are the perfect opportunity for you and your partner to get comfortable with me and be in front of the camera.
From here, we can meet and I can help construct your day-of timeline to ensure that we have plenty of time to meet all of your photography needs. If you're working with a day-of or wedding coordinator they are welcome to join in too!
A month before your wedding I'll send over a final questionnaire for you and your fiancé to complete. This will let me know your finalized plans so that I can provide you with all you photography needs on your big day!
I don't shy away from colors. I love showcasing the bold statement they can make in a photograph. The colors can be in the clothes you're wearing or highlighting the colors in nature.
When I edit photos, I don't use crazy filters just because they are trendy. My goal is to provide you with photos that are timeless, so you can share them with your family and friends for years to come.
I capture those real moments that you experience with the ones you love. Yes, at one point we'll do traditional portraits but besides that, you won't even know I'm there. You'll be living in the moment and I'll be along for the ride providing you with snapshots of your favorite memories.
I love, LOVE!
I'm a photographer who will be with you from beginning and will stay with you well past your wedding day.
At your engagement session, we're going to get silly, have fun and build a relationship where you'll be super comfortable with me on your wedding day.
I'm there to boost your confidence in front of the camera and capture your special moments.
I'll be there tearing up during your vows and cheering when you share your first kiss.
I have no problem asking your relative to tuck their phone away during the ceremony and I can be that friend to tell you that you have something in your teeth before you walk down the aisle.
As a photographer, I don't shy away from color but I love classic black and white photos which is why 10% of your final photos will be in black and white.
I am a firm believer in natural beauty and I work hard to showcase that in every photo.
You can reach out to me before, during and after your wedding to ask questions - you are NEVER bothering me!

How far in advance should I book my photographer?
A.As soon as you can! Once you have your venue with your confirmed date - let's get you on the calendar.
What's the next step in the process?
A.If you're ready to chat and get more information - let's set up a time to chat! We can connect over the phone or video chat, I can answer all your questions and we can decided if we'd be a good fit! I will also be sending you and your fiancé a guide book that may answer many of your questions.
When will I receive my photos?
A.One week after your wedding, I'll send you 5 photos as a sneak peak! I will have your finished, edited photos to you within 8 weeks form wedding date - but I'm always striving to get them done sooner.
Will I be able to print my pictures?
A.Absolutely! Part of our contract is for you, the client(s), includes a print release that allows you to print your photos anywhere. You can also buy them straight form your gallery - prints, canvas, cards, you name it! You'll be able to download your entire album from your private online gallery.
How many photos will we receive?
A.The number of photos will depend on a few things - hours of coverage, how many guests and type of event. I work hard to deliver as many final photos as I can.
How do payment schedules work?
A.For all weddings I require a 40% non-refundable retainer fee that's due the day you sign your contract. That will reserve your date. The remaining 60% of your balance will be due 30 days before your wedding. If you need to make other payment arrangements please let me know and I can work with couples on an individual basis.
Can I extend the session on the day of?
A.Short answer - no. I book out weeks to months in advance. I may have other engagement sessions booked on the same day and cannot go over time.
I only book 1 wedding per weekend so that I can give you my full attention on your wedding day. You can add extra hours of coverage but that must be done in advance and be put into our contract. Out of respect to my home-work balance, I will not be able to accommodate requests to stay late on the day of your wedding.
Do you offer discounts?
A.The only discount I offer is a military discount for wedding packages. Other than that, my prices are firm.
What if we need to cancel/reschedule our shoot or wedding?
A.If you’ve already put a deposit down on a date then have to move/cancel it, the deposit is legally non-refundable and a new deposit will have to be made in order to hold your new date. The only exception to this is my COVID-19 policy which allows a couple to move their deposit to another open date within 1 calendar year of their original date. This must be directly due to COVID-19 restrictions by the state.
Do you travel?
A.Yes! I’m happy to travel throughout Washington State and Oregon! I do require a travel fee for any location that is over 50 miles from 98524.
What kind of gear do you use?
A.I use a Sony a7sii which is a mirrorless camera. For lenses, I use three prime lenses, 85mm, 50mm and 25mm.
Can I provide you with a list of "must have" photos?
A.Yes please! Your wedding is all about you and your love. My goal is to get every photo you want. I also provide a questionnaire and can provide suggestions during your consultation.
Do you deliver RAW images?
A.The short answer - no, I don't allow clients to view or purchase unedited, raw photos. I spend many hours to ensure that you receive the highest quality of photos in your final gallery.
