Congratulations on your engagement! This is such an exciting time! I am truly honored to be considered for your wedding photography. It is such a privilege to be alongside you on one of the most important days of your life. Not only do I take your photos, but I personally make it my mission to keep your day flowing smoothly from start to finish. In order to do this, we will work together to craft the perfect timeline and you can expect lots of tips and tricks along the way!
What to Expect
My goal is to make this entire process as seamless and stress-free as possible from the time you decide to book me as your wedding photographer to the final delivery of your wedding gallery!
Every wedding is different because, well, every couple is different! So instead of making a bunch of collections telling you what you get, I’ve created a system that allows you to totally customize your own package so it’s exactly what you need for your wedding day! First you will choose a collection below based on how many hours you need. Then select which upgrades you’d like to include. Feel free to add more if you wish. And that’s it, you’re done!

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I really need an engagement session?
While of course you don’t have to do anything you don’t want to do, I do highly recommend an engagement session! It gives us an opportunity to get comfortable with each other before the wedding. You honestly spend more time with your wedding photographer on the wedding day than your new spouse! So it’s really nice to get to know each other first!
I’m not local to you. Do you travel?
Heck yeah! Within 30 miles of home base (Clinton, IA) is free, beyond that it’s 50 cents per mile. Please email me for a custom quote if your location is more than 150 miles away.
Do you provide any photos in black and white?
Yes! I always choose a selection of photos that I feel will look great in black and white. However, I will also edit them in color so you have both options.
What happens if you’re sick on my wedding day?
Knock on wood! First of all, I have to be VERY sick to miss your wedding! But I realize I’m human, so just in case that happens, I am lucky to have a wonderful network of talented, local photographers who I can call to step in for me. I will be the one communicating with you after the wedding, editing your images and designing your products so you’ll still get my full wedding experience from start to finish.
I’m ready to book! What’s next?
Hooray! The next step is to fill out my proposal, which I will send via email. This is where you’ll make your wedding package selections, sign your contract and pay the 50% retainer. I am so excited to welcome you as a client and will be with you every step of the way!
