Experience 

I get it. I lived it. And I'm here for you. 

Planning a wedding is stressful. That's why I offer unlimited consultations and planning assistance. Count on me for phone calls, coffee dates, or cocktails, and loads of high fives. I've got the best ideas for you.

Weddings are my jam. It's important that we vibe well together so I always suggest setting up a Zoom meeting to get to understand each other a little more. I want you to be sure (without a doubt) that I am the one you want to photograph your wedding. Plus, it'll be fun. Kinda like a blind date. We'll review my wedding collections and then go over any questions you may have. 

Frequently asked questions

HOW DO I BOOK YOU?


Once you contact me about booking, we will schedule a phone consultation to discuss my photography style, any current promotions, talk about your wedding date, and see if we are a good match. If you decide to book (which I hope you do!!), I will send you a contract and invoice for your retainer. Once I receive your contract and retainer, your date will be locked in & we will schedule your engagement session.




WHEN IS MY PAYMENT DUE?


Upon signing your contract, there are a few options for payment. A minimum of $500 is due to ensure that I have you on my calendar. The final balance is due one month prior to your wedding day. Payment plans are also available.




WHAT IS YOUR TURN AROUND TIME?


For wedding collections, it takes 8-10 weeks to cull, edit, and deliver your digital gallery. I do not enjoy making you wait at all so I provide a sneak peek within 48-72 hours! I care about making sure I take the necessary time to creatively cull and edit your images. For portrait sessions (engagement, bridals, boudoir, etc.), I promise to get them to you in 2 weeks. Images are delivered via online and you will have the ability to download the photos in digital files and share them with your friends/family!




DO YOU CHARGE FOR TRAVEL?


I am willing to drive anywhere in North Carolina. If the drive is more than 2 hours, I require my clients to pay $250 for me to book an overnight stay for me. If you’re booking an out- of-state wedding, flight and hotel boarding will be required.




WHAT KIND OF GEAR DO YOU USE?


I currently own two Nikon d750s, a 35mm, 50mm, 85mm, and lighting gear!




WHAT IF I DON'T WANT AN ENGAGEMENT SESSION?


The engagement session is complimentary because I want to connect with you before your wedding day and get you comfortable in front of my camera! Opting out of the engagement session does not change the collection cost but you are welcome to swap it out for a bridal session or a one year anniversary session.
