I only take on a handful of weddings a year so I'm never burnt out. Each wedding brings me more and more joy to serve my couples fully with every bit of myself!

I will squeal in excitement with your girls when you slip into your dress. My heart will beat out of my chest with yours as you walk down the aisle to your best friend. I will literally hoot and holler when you share your first kiss as husband and wife and dance with you as you celebrate this joyful day!

And when all is said and done, I will deliver a collection of joyful, genuine and timeless images that preserve the happiness and beauty of your day forever. 



RC Bride

I would tell her "don’t hesitate"! Being an RC bride wasn’t just about the photos, she helped me through the day. Met with me multiple times to figure out my timeline and details of the wedding. Not very many photographers will do that!

If someone was on the fence about being an rc bride, what would you tell her?

Wedding photography is NOT one-size-fits-all! I serve a very specific type of bride who recognizes that the photos of herself & her new groom on their special day are more than just pretty pictures. She's looking for an incredible EXPERIENCE! RC Brides can trust that I will take care of them from the start and they know that nothing will be missed!  The first step towards working with me is determining if I am the perfect fit for you! After getting to know you online, I’ll determine if we’re a match made in heaven and then we’ll move on to the booking process!

Yay! You were made to be an RC Bride! Now let's make sure your date is safe and secure so that you can get the Wedding Experience!! I’ll send your online proposal where you can review all the fine details and pay your booking fee to make everything officially official! And when you’re an official RC Bride & Groom, it’s time to get started!!

Up next: Timeline talk

Let the fun begin! After you book, we’ll schedule your engagement session. And don’t worry... I'll teach you EVERYTHING! I thrive at helping my couples get comfortable and feel like themselves in front of the camera. After the first 15 minutes of your session, you will be pros! GUARANTEED. I’ve NEVER had a couple not feel at ease! Even if you think you’re not photogenic or if your fiancé “hates having pictures taken”, you will be killing it in no time! That’s all the time we need to get rid of nerves and start capturing the joy of this new season of your life together!

I like to get in touch with my brides a couple months out to make sure that we’re prepared and ready for your wedding! I love creating custom timelines for my couples to ensure that you don’t miss out on your dream wedding photos! You know all of those dreamy portraits, fun friend shots and detail images that look like they are straight out of a magazine??? I work with my couples to plan their day so that they can actually have images like that of their OWN! So let me be part of your timeline planning and we'll create the perfect timeline for a photography-friendly wedding day!

It’s here! It’s time to celebrate, relax and let me get to work! This day is going to be a blur to you so I make it a priority to capture the traditional shots that every bride needs while also capturing the moments in between in a creative & unique way. After the big day, you’ll be featured on the RC BLOG the following TUESDAY! Unlike other photogs in the area, I don't keep my couples waiting because I KNOW you're anxious to see them! The blog will showcase my favorites of your day which is usually 75-100 images!


step five:
your wedding day

The Process

I'm ready to be an RC Bride!

After your wedding day is over, you will receive an online gallery full of all of your wedding memories! HUNDREDS and HUNDREDS of them! I encourage my couples to sit down with a glass of wine the night that their gallery goes live and enjoy reliving their wedding day through their images! Soon after your gallery is delivered, you will receive your album design (if you ordered one) and you can begin the customization process! So, are you ready for your dream wedding photos?
