I can't wait to meet you!

If you've landed here, you are a creative heart who is ready to level up their photography through their art and/or business. You are:

  • In the beginning stages of your wedding or family portrait business, or have been working for a few years but running to a wall; or 
  • Someone who loves photography, wants to learn how to photograph in manual mode, and needs to know all of the basics about editing, uploading, photo sharing, etc.; or 
  • You aren't sure which direction to go in, but you know that photography needs to be a part of your life.

Let's work together in your journey


In our first meeting, we will have a 15 minute consultation call to fully dive into what you are looking for in a mentorship, so that I can set you up with the perfect plan for success. We will have an in-depth discussion about where you have been in your photography journey, and where you'd like to be at the end of your mentorship.  

first steps.

We're here as a resource beyond photography—whether you're looking for engagement session outfit recommendations, timeline advice, or vendor referrals.

Even if you're working with a wedding planner or you're planning a simple wedding, there are likely still a lot of moving pieces left leading up to your big day. We've photographed more than 150 weddings in the past few years and we're happy to share everything we've learned along the way! 

Wedding Advice

We’re big fans of engagement sessions for a few reasons. Not only do they allow you to get comfortable in front of the camera, they also give you the opportunity to showcase your personalities in a more casual setting that is significant to the two of you. 

Engagement sessions can take place anywhere from immediately following a proposal to just a few days before the wedding. We’ve found that there isn’t a “good” or “bad” time to take your photos. We normally plan sessions based on a particular “look” a couple has in mind, spring flowers for example, or based on schedules. 

Engagement Session

We check-in about two months before the wedding to start chatting about timeline specifics, special details, family formal shot lists, special traditions and anything else we should know about your big day. 

While we normally don't send this questionnaire until closer to the wedding, please don't hesitate to let us know if you have questions during the planning process!

Wedding Day Prep

It's finally here! The day the two of you say "I Do" and dance the night away surrounded by your family and friends. 

Just know we're excited to celebrate and capture your wedding day. It's going to be awesome.

The Big Day

You can expect your photos to be delivered via an online gallery within about three weeks of your wedding. At that time, we'll also send over details about preserving your images through prints and albums. 

We hope the relationship doesn't end after we deliver your photographs. We want to hear about the adventures of married life. And if you decide to have kids, we'd love to document your growing family.
