Beyond the click of a button…I’m here for YOU.
When you work with me, you’ll get all of my photography skills (low light, direct light, night time, I gotchu), but also all of my planning and organization skills. I’m 100% invested in your day and going above and beyond to make sure that everything runs smoothly, which means I’m helping create timelines, formal lists, and learn as much as I can about your vision before wedding day so that I can serve your story to the best of my ability. I want your day to be as amazing as possible, which is why I hustle for you before the day even begins.
Rain plans, backup gear, timeline snapfoos, NO PROBLEM. You’re investing in not only killer photos, but also in ME, your photographer extraordinaire. I’m in your corner and I’m prepared for just about anything.
Document a season of life full of anticipation. Or let’s go on a date (I’ll third wheel) and make some memories for you to display in your home.
Your wedding should be all about you! After almost 100 weddings, I’ve crafted an experience that makes it easy to enjoy the process every step of the way!

THE MOST FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How would you describe your style?
Non-intrusive, comfortable, and natural. I strive to direct only when needed and let you enjoy the day as it unfolds. The more I insert myself into your day as a curator, the more the day becomes about ME when it’s about YOU. I keep it natural, keep it comfortable, and bring out the best in you.
What kind of gear do you use?
I have been a long-time Sony user and I use professional Sony mirrorless cameras with primarily prime lenses. I always have backup equipment for everything I use because failing to prepare is preparing to fail.
Can we see full galleries?
You bet! It’s the best way to see how I approach a day and what to expect when it’s all over.
Are you insured?
Yes, definitely! Insurance protects me and you! I am insured through The Harford.
Do you travel?
I do, especially within Michigan! I serve primarily the Detroit and Ann Arbor area but love to travel. I do charge a travel fee for weddings outside of a 3-hour radius of my home. Contact me for more info!
We are nervous about being photographed. Help!
If I had a dollar for every time someone told me this, I’d have a fat stack of cash! No, but really, I gotchu. I know what it feels like to be nervous about looking good in photos and my goal is to create an environment where you can feel comfortable to be completely you. I give you enough direction but really think of it all like a game of improv…we say “yes and…” a lot! If you are super duper nervous, an engagement session is something you definitely want to do! It’ll give you confidence in yourselves and acclimate you to being in front of a camera.
How long until we can see our photos?
My delivery time is 6-8 weeks. I edit your photos and make sure they are absolutely perfect before I send them to you. If you’d like them sooner, I can rush edit them for $500 and put you to the front of my editing queue.
How far in advance should we book?
The hot dates usually go 12-18 months ahead of time. Most couples book me in the 9-12 month window before their wedding.
How do we get this party started?
Inquire! Let’s chat about your wedding. I really want to get to know you so I can give you an amazing experience. I want to help you choose the best package for your needs and make sure we are going to jive. It’s about more than just the photos for me. If we’re a great fit, I’ll send a contract and invoice to pay your $1000 retainer and then we are offish.
