Let's Chat.

 

My Approach

First, let me genuinely say thank you for spending your time with me. There are SO many talented photographers out there and if you’re considering me and my work, I’m honored. I value your time so much I also believe it's critical that I share my full heart with you so you can have a better understanding of how I will best serve you, your friends, your family, and all the people you love on your wedding day.  

If you’re looking for a photographer to show up and get traditional, posed, smiling “Pinterest perfect looking” photos, we might not be the best fit. And that’s okay. If you’re shopping around trying to find the most budget-friendly deal, we might not be the best fit. And that’s also okay because you deserve to have a photographer on your wedding day that will fit exactly your needs. But to be completely honest with you, my heart is to be more than just a person with a camera. More than just another item to check off your checklist.

You see, couples never realize how big of a role their photographer plays until the day is over. You don’t realize it now while you’re so focused on centerpieces and bridesmaid dresses, the florals, even you’re guest list! But your photographer not only spends the ENTIRE day with you, but the art they produce actually becomes more valuable over the years. All that to say, choose someone you connect with. Someone who sees you as the truly incredible couple that you are. Someone whom you’d enjoy spending the best day of your life with.

When choosing me, I'm investing my whole self in your day. I only take on a limited number of clients every year so I can honor what each couple is entrusting to me. Not only am I investing my time to assist you throughout the planning process, and the day of, but I'm investing what I value most, my faith. I'll be praying for you and the marriage you're going to create. I'll be speaking life into your soon to be marriage because young couples don't hear enough that MARRIAGE IS AWESOME. I'm going to paint the best picture I can of how fulfilled you both can be in this new calling. 

 

My  Philosophy

My pricing structure is simple and meant to be transparent. However, the philosophy behind it is much more intentional. Your wedding day goes SO fast. My own wedding day is a total beautiful blur. Over my last 4 years of working in the Kansas City and destination wedding photography industry, there's one thing I noticed my clients truly needed from me, my undivided time. I no longer want to be confined to fitting your day into a package set of hours. I no longer want you to feel like you can't have your getting ready moments and your sparkler exit. I want you to have your own beautiful non-blurry day unpressured by a photo schedule. I believe my two package options are designed to fit every bride-to-be's wedding day. These options allow for ample time where and however needed. From intimate destination ceremonies to family-filled venues and anywhere in between. I also include one-on-one timeline assistance so we have the opportunity to chat about your day, your coverage, the moments you want captured and more. Have questions? Connect with me here!

 

My  Promise

I promise to serve you and the vision of your wedding day. I promise not to push a photo schedule that monopolizes a day meant for something more. I promise to create images that highlight your unique qualities and authentically tell your story to the best of my abilities. I promise to give you the space you need to be comfortable and present. I promise to let your individuality and energy dictate the images created. I promise to never make you conform to an idea of what wedding photography should be. I promise to meet you where you are and be present myself. I promise to always be creating, joyful, fighting for you, praying for you, and always to be kind. Lastly, I promise to have the most fun ever while spending your best day with you. I cannot wait to see what we can create together!
