You have a million things swirling around in your head right now and you're bubbling over with joy! So what's next? After the initial email, let's schedule a meeting. Meeting in person is one of the best ways to talk out your vision for your wedding day. Once you have decided that we are a perfect fit, I will then email you a proposal and contract with a wedding prepayment invoice. Once paid, let the planning begin! We will start with scheduling a complimentary engagement session and discuss timeframes of sending out save the dates and invitations as well as a preliminary wedding day timeline.

our process

YAY! YOU'RE ENGAGED!

I think is is so important to get a broad idea of the timeline at least 4-6 months out. If you decided to add on a bridal session, we will then decide on a date and location so that there is adequate time to get the portraits back in time for your wedding day. If you get a final walk through of the venue, I would love to come walk it with you so that I can make sure I am familiar with it before your wedding day. At least one month out from your wedding day, we will start solidifying the wedding day timeline. I will guide you throughout the process to ensure that you are not rushed and that we can capture some amazing light. It's wedding day finally so sit back and relax because it's going to be the best day of your life!

My passion is and has always been capturing images that are full of life and love. My goal as a wedding photographer is that every photograph I share with my couples glows with love, honesty, and beauty that takes them back to their wedding day. I want my couples to be able to relive and rekindle the emotion of their wedding day over and over again, year after year.

I’m a southern girl at heart and can’t go a day without sweet tea—and that comes through in my photographs that drip with the sweet Southern charm my life and family has been steeped in. You’ll know, the first time you meet me, I like to take things slow and thoughtfully, whether it’s how I pronounce my words or how I shoot my photographs.

I strive to help my clients slow down, take in the scene the way it was meant to be experienced, and live in the moment. I shoot with a mixture of digital and film photography because it allows me to do what I do best—take full advantage of natural light and the soft textures of classic photography. The feeling film gives when you’re holding the album in your hands just can’t be duplicated with today’s modern, cool technology that can often overshadow the warmth and quiet passion in memories of an intimate moment.   

My wedding collections are a base from which they can be customized to fit each couples' needs. Let's sit down together and talk about your wedding plans, photo desires, timelines, and your photo budget. I'll make a wonderful photography package just for you that you're guaranteed to love!
