my philosophy

Your wedding day isn’t a photoshoot.

It’s about celebrating your love and the gathering of all of your loved ones in one place at one time. It’s not about finding the most “Pinterest-worthy” moment or landscape but capturing your day as it unfolds, whatever that may look like.

Creating The anti-paparazzi experience

The whole planning process and wedding day should be an experience you never forget. I’m here to make the planning and day as stress-free as possible. On the day of, I’m not there to boss you around or tear you away from your guests if you’d rather be partying down with them. I’m there to serve you and document your day, whatever that looks like.

Here to serve your story, not my own

I’m the perfection combination of organized and flexible, proactive yet not overbearing, knowledgeable but not bossy, and a comforting presence both with and without a camera in hand. I promise to be transparent with you throughout planning and to show up to your day to serve you and your story, not my own.

What Sets Me Apart?

I go beyond the click of a button…I don’t just show up to take photos.

I’m not just there on your wedding day capturing all those little and big moments you want to remember forever. I’m also helping you plan a personalized timeline, helping you build a family formal list, and making sure that all the i’s are dotted and t’s are crossed throughout the planning process and beyond. 

I’m here to help in any way you need.

I’ve planned a wedding. I’ve also been to a lot of them! I’m happy to provide advice, tips, what works best/what doesn’t usually work, and just any type of support you might need. My couples get a lot of planning information from me and have access to me throughout the process. I only take a limited amount of weddings per season to give this personalized attention!

I’ll tell you what to do with your hands.

If I had a dollar for every person who told me they think they’re going to be awkward in front of the camera, I’d be treating myself more often. I know being in front of a camera can be anxiety-inducing, but I got you. Making you feel comfortable and relaxed, no matter the crazy chaotic happening, is totally my forte. I’m never going to ask you to be anyone you’re not. 

Very dog-friendly.

I am 100% dog-friendly and encourage all dogs at your wedding and any session.

Madalyn was the best photographer ever. She was so helpful, and willing to meet with me in person to iron our all the details. It felt more like a friend helping us than a vendor.
