Frequently Asked Questions

I really only want 4 hours of coverage on my wedding day rather than 8+, can we do that?

Through all my years of photographing weddings, I've found that I am able to most effectively and honestly tell the story of your day through a minimum of 8 hours of coverage on a more traditional wedding day. If you're eloping or having an intimate wedding, 4 hours of coverage may be an option for you but my full day weddings begin at 8 hours of coverage. If you have questions about this, don't hesitate to ask as I am more than happy to elaborate on why I believe this so wholeheartedly! I'm here to tell your story from beginning to end and 8 hours is where that really comes to life. 


How do I know which collection is best for me?

I totally understand how overwhelming it can feel trying to figure out how many hours of coverage you might need and what add-ons would be best. That's what I'm here for! After you inquire, we will set up a video call where we get to chat allll the fun details and dreams for your big day. From there, I'll be able to ask more specific questions about what you want your day to look like and what is most important to you and make a recommendation on what collection would be the best fit for you. I'm in your corner and here to help!


How do I know if I need a second shooter for my wedding or not?

Every wedding is different, and some days might benefit from added coverage from a second shooter while for others it may not be as necessary. Once you inquire, we will set up a time to chat and go in-depth about your dreams for your big day and everything you're wanting captured. From there, I'll be able to make my best expert recommendation for you and what you're looking for!


We want you to be a part of more than just our wedding day! What other sessions do you offer?

When it comes to the season of life you're in, I am HONOREDDD to get to walk alongside you and document so many different beautiful parts of it! I offer proposal photography, engagement sessions, bridal portraits, boudoir sessions, rehearsal dinner/welcome party coverage, and more. When you inquire, you'll receive a complete investment guide that goes in depth into each of these different collection additions!


Do you shoot film?

Film is a more recent addition to my photography workflow and I'm obsessed with it! Currently, I am still in the experimental phase and do not offer this as a formal/paid add-on to my collections but it IS coming soon!!!!! Stay tuned!


I tend to feel awkward in front of the camera! Will you help me feel more comfortable?

ABSOLUTELY, YES! Everyone can feel awkward at times when it comes to being in front of a camera, but I'll be by your side every step of the way encouraging you, prompting you, and documenting you in a way that allows you to relax and be your true self. You'll get your images back and be like "oh my GOSH that's us?!?! We don't look awkward at all!!!!!".


You're on the hunt for the perfect photographer and Wondering if Am I the One?!

You’re going to come across a lot of incredible options, all of whom bring something different and special to the table. The truth is, I’m not the photographer for everyone.

I'm the photographer for you if:

You value not only the big, anticipated moments (helloooo first kiss at the altar!) but also the stolen glances, happy tears, and genuine laughter shared on your day and want to see it all reflected in your gallery.

You want a photographer who is going to do more than just show up on your day and tell you to smile. You want someone who will really get to know you as a friend first in order to most honestly tell the story of your big day.

You're The One!

You value being present and enjoying every aspect of your day more than you value getting the perfectly staged shot

You prioritize a stress-free experience and want to hire someone you know you can trust to document every big and little moment while letting you fully enjoy your day
