You should LOVE your photographer. They spend the most time with you on your wedding day, so you need to like them as a human & trust their judgment to capture what's important to you. We might be the perfect fit for each other if you love my photos, nodded along through my about page, AND:
You’re more excited about being married than about your wedding.
You want to create a cozy, relaxed, and inviting atmosphere for your guests (kids included).
You view your wedding mass as a chance to share the beauty of Jesus and His Church.
You’re happy to let your dress get a little dirty after the ceremony because walking hand in hand with your HUSBAND is more important than holding it off the ground.
You think photos of your wedding are important, but not at the expense of turning the day into a photo shoot.
We start with a phone call with both of you to figure out if this relationship gets all of us excited. Only if I’m the perfect fit to photograph your wedding will I agree to do it because, honestly, you deserve nothing less.
We’ll also talk through what parts of your wedding day are most important to you, what the best timeline is based on when you’re getting married, and my recommendations for photography needs like adding on a second photographer, extra hours - all that jazz.
If all systems are a go, I ask for us to make this new friendship official with a signed agreement and 50% retainer payment. That books your date in my calendar and no one else can touch it!
From there I can send you weekly wedding planning tips, offer marriage prep resources, and I definitely ask about how you’re doing. Feel free to send me updates on everything wedding & relationship related because hello, I love talking to you! My husband & I will be praying for you as the wedding day gets closer.
You’ll fill out a questionnaire about everything you’ve been planning. I’ll create your final timeline, family photo list, and take note of any other details that help me photograph the day. We talk everything over a few weeks out from the wedding and then the countdown begins in earnest!
Once you’ve said your vows and I’ve documented all the celebrations, your highlight blog post goes live within the week after your wedding. I tell the story of how I saw your wedding day, helping you and your guests relive and reminisce about how awesome the weekend was. Within a month of your wedding you’ll have the full collection of high-res images to download, print, and share with everyone you love.
And after that? Well, I’m part of the community that witnessed you entering the Sacrament of Marriage and, as such, I’m here to support you. I’ve got your back as you navigate that newlywed season of life.
They take things seriously, but not too seriously. A perfect blend of reverence and relaxation. Honour, celebration, and sentimentality offered when it’s due, their wedding day reflecting that beautifully.
It was a date night to connect, refocus, and remember this season of life. These two have fought hard for each other, becoming more like gold through the storms.
They’re firm, steadfast; standing up for what, and who, they believe in. Wholeheartedly co-creating a life with the Lord that shines brighter than any plans they could’ve made on their own.
"They are beautiful photos and I think you captured our day perfectly! You were amazing and made us feel so comfortable and relaxed, you felt like one of the family! Thank you for making the trip out here, it meant a lot to us! Thank you Thank you Thank you!"
"But you make them comfortable, too. You move through life with such humility and realness that others can't help but be real in your presence. Being a naturally awkward soul, your patience and easygoing way of taking pictures brings out the best in us!"
“The first time I saw our wedding photos, I felt like I was reliving the day all over again. Looking at them now, I still feel that way. It was a gift to have you as part of our day, reminding us to focus on the now while capturing moments we wanted to hold forever. We are so grateful for your gorgeous photos that help us to keep our wedding day close."
