OH HI. I'm thrilled you're here. If you are, you're probably engaged (or soon-to-be) so first of all, congratulations! This is an exciting time, but whole process of planning a wedding can be overwhelming. I'm here to tell you that  it doesn't have to be! I'm all about wedding days that are authentic, relaxed, and FUN.

Does this sound familiar?

if that sounds like you...

We would be a great fit! As a photographer, my priority is to capture authentic and REAL connections between people. I love simple wedding days that focus on couples and their families and stick to what's truly important.

let's start planning your day!

the experience

Our relationship begins with a phone call (or a taco date if you're in town!). We'll talk all about your wedding day plans and make sure we'll be a great fit. I want to know all about you and your partner, what brings you joy, what your current Netflix binge is, your 5-year plan, and whatever else you want to throw at me.

I only take a limited number of  weddings every year, so I want to make sure I'm the perfect photographer for you! Limiting the number of weddings I shoot every year helps me focus more on my couples and serve them in the best way I can.

We get to know each other at your engagement session. The most important thing I need to know is: pizza or donuts? We are going to hang out somewhere awesome, have some fun, and have something to eat! Are you guys more taco people? Yeah, me too. Let's do tacos.

Engagement sessions are relaxed and fun. I like to take you somewhere to explore, preferably with some views, and spend some time laughing and snacking. Worried about looking your best? Don't be! I'll send you a detailed session guide when you book that'll help you plan your session and give you tons of tips on what to wear!

Engagement sessions are the perfect way for you to get comfortable in front of my camera and get an idea for how I will operate on your wedding day.

On your wedding day, we'll be spending a lot of time together. Out of all your vendors, you'll probably spend the most amount of time with me! So it's pretty important to me that we vibe really well. I'll be there from the time you're getting your make up on to when you head off for the night! I'll be there to capture all the details, the little and big moments, the happiness and tears (of joy, obviously).

My favorite part of a wedding day is shooting your bride and groom portraits. I love being able to step away with the two of you when the light is especially amazing and grabbing the shots of you that you'll hang on your walls and give to your children and grandchildren!

I also love being able to shoot a first look. That moment when you two see each other for the first time, with no distractions, is so, so special to witness. It's a really great way to steal away some quiet moments with your spouse to focus on each other and remember why you've done all this planning!

When the wedding is over, I love getting texts and emails from my brides on their first anniversaries, when they find out they're expecting, or just because! I invest myself in your marriage as much as I invest myself in making beautiful photographs. 

frequently answered questions

next question

do you shoot weddings of all sizes?

Definitely! While most of my calendar is filled with intimate weddings and elopements, I reserve a few weekends per year for larger weddings (50+ people). 

how do you decide which weddings to take?

My first priority is to serve my clients in the best way I can. So, that means making sure our personalities, values, and styles mesh. I see my couples as friends rather than just clients, and love getting to know them through the whole process.

how do i reserve my date?

After we talk in-person or on the phone, I'll send you a contract and proposal via email. All that's required to save your date is a 25% retainer and your signature!

how do you decide which images you deliver?

After your session the first thing I do is back up and cull (fancy word for select) your images. I take out all the blinks, blurs, and bad angles, leaving you with the best of the best. All those images then are edited and delivered to you in your online gallery. You can print, share, and download them as much as you'd like!

do you charge for travel?

All my prices include travel within 60 miles of Billings, MT. Other travel fees are accounted for on a case-by-case basis. Travel fees generally include mileage ($.38/mile) or airfare, hotel, and food costs.  Certain locations may require permits or visas, which would also be included in the travel charge.

do you offer albums in your packages?

While I don't include albums as part of my packages, I do include a print credit for the gallery store that can be put towards any prints, canvas, or albums. When you get in touch, I'll send you a link to a full online gallery so you can see exactly how they work and what products are offered!
