a reminder that

your experience matters

I want you to have gorgeous photos of your wedding. 

But what might surprise you, is the most important thing to me is making sure you enjoy your day. 

Your wedding day isn't a photoshoot. It's not a time for me to build my portfolio. 

It's about you and your partner and celebrating with your closest people. 

To me, the experience is everything

highlight gallery

Heard of the horror stories of couples not seeing a single wedding photo for months? Don't worry about that with me! All couples receive a sneak peek in 24 hours and a full 80 image highlight gallery in just 1 week! So you can start printing and sharing photos from your best day ever, right away!

Consultation calls

You will never feel like you booked me and then I vanished. Making sure I'm present and available for any questions or help you need along the way is huge in the experience I provide. All couples can have at least two consultations with me throughout the process to go over details, ask questions and just generally get to know each other. 

in-depth questionnaire

It is super important that I get to know all my couples, so I send out a questionnaire 3 months before wedding day. This helps me tailor your day specifically to you and your needs. It goes over things like: music you'd like to listen to during your portrait session, any sensitive family situations I should know about and any must have photos.

planning & Scouting

Creating a timeline is one of the most stressful things for couples– so let me do it for you! And if you're eloping, forget the stress of searching for the perfection location, all couples receive my exclusive location guide full of hidden gems all across Colorado! 

Discounted Engagements

All couples receive a 50% off discount on engagement sessions. Engagement sessions are one of the best ways for us to get to know each other before the wedding day. And after your session you'll be feeling like a rockstar in front of the camera come wedding day! 


Immediately after booking you'll receive an in-depth wedding or elopement guide. This has tons of information from location ideas to sample timelines to suggestions for what to do when it rains. It has taken me years to perfect this guide and it's something all my clients rave about!

let's work together!

What to Expect


the fridge photos your mom wants

The classic, smiling at the camera shot. I call em the "boring facebook prof pic" or the "mom shot". They may not be the most creative or the flashiest, but they are some of the most important shots of the day!


"candids" for the gram 

The pics your bestie wants. Those smiling, totally "candid" shots of you laughing with your crew.


more movement, less awkward posing

I love relaxed and natural couples photos. The best images come from when you're just being yourselves. Don't worry, I'll still give you direction. You're not on your own out there!! I just want you to feel comfortable and at ease.


the "is that us?!" shot

Let's capture the essence of y'all, but still give you that "holy sh*t we look gooooood" moment. I'm all about finding the good good light and making y'all feel like rockstars in front of the camera.


capturing the in between

Those intimate moments that will have you thinking, "I didn't even realize you captured that!". You might not remember these tiny, little moments– but they're what make your day feel like your day. 


the big 3

The most important shots from the ceremony, I have dubbed, "the big 3". The first look shot, the walking down the aisle shot, and the kiss. This is my "palms are sweaty, moms spaghetti" moment of your wedding day. I can't and won't miss these shots, I know how important they are for you and your family.


details done differently

I want to make sure to photograph all those special items that you chose for your wedding day. That special tie, those shoes, grandma's necklace. I want to bring those details to life. So yes, we'll get some safe shots of your details– but I also want them to emote and not just be placed awkwardly on the ground. 


receptions photos with energy

This isn't your 6th grade dance, let's bring some energy and movement into your reception photos. I want you to feel like you're back on the dancefloor when you go through your gallery.

A first look is when the couple sees each other before the ceremony. These moments are usually quite intimate with only the couple and the photographer. As a photographer I love first looks for a few reasons. Firstly it really is an emotional moment, I've found that grooms feel like they can be more emotional since it's so private. And also it allows for so many more photos! After the first look we can do couples photos before the ceremony. Without a first look everyone typically hides out in their getting ready location so they aren't seen beforehand.

That being said, it's totally a personal decision! Seeing each other at the ceremony is definitely more traditional, so if that's what you've envisioned your whole life, do it!

You'll receive a sneak peek of a few images on social media within 72 hours because I know how eager couples are to see their images! A highlight blog post will go live two weeks after your event. And then your final gallery will be ready in 6-8 weeks. 

There is no cap on images I deliver for a wedding. The amount of images you receives varies from event to event, if you have more portrait time or lots of open dance floor dancing you'll have lots more images! But typically you'll receive 60-100 images per hour. 

I am located in Denver, Colorado. But I will travel wherever! Travel and lodging fees do apply. I offer discounted rates for certain "bucket list" wedding locations. 

My style is a mix of photojournalistic and traditional. I love capturing candid moments, the authentic smiles, the natural tears, the goofy glances— all the things that make your wedding authentically you. But I also want to make sure that you get the shots you've been waiting for. I want you to have the classic images of you and your partner seeing each other for the first time, or your first dance, or just a big family photo that your mom will display in her home.

Yes! Absolutely! Small intimate weddings (less than 25 guests) and elopements are some of my favorite things to photograph! I typically only book these 4 months in advance or on weekdays. 

I will send over a proposal that allows you to choose your perfect wedding package. A $1000 deposit will be due upon booking, this retainer is non-refundable and reserves your date. You'll then sign a contract and be officially booked!

Yes! In fact, my payment structure is already broken up into installments to make my services more accessible. Your payments will be broken up into 5 payments throughout your journey with me. 

To be fair to everyone I can't hold dates without a signed contract and retainer.

Yes! And I offer a 50% discount on them for wedding clients! Engagement shoots are a great way to see how my couples interact on their wedding day. We can chat about which poses you find most flattering and natural. I can see if you are more touchy and intimate or more reserved and traditional, all which will create a more seamless and streamlined wedding day experience.
