Whether you have a wedding planner or not, I want to be an intricate part of your wedding planning process. In order to make sure that you get all of the best images from your wedding day, planning a schedule beforehand and making a “game plan” can ensure that the wedding day will go as smoothly as possible. From details to reception, family portraits to the first look with your new spouse, we will discuss the most important things that you want photographed on your wedding day and make sure that we have a way of capturing all of your cherished memories.
Careful planning before the wedding day truly relieves stress! When you trust your photographer and the schedule that is planned, you can go into your wedding day feeling confident. Just knowing that your photographer is there with all the answers will allow you to stay in the moment and not worry about where or when you need to be at the next spot. Trust me, I will let you know when we have to be somewhere else.
I make an effort to get to know my clients. I believe that when I know them and truly understand their life, relationship and what is important to them, I can do a better job of capturing their wedding day. This is also a two way street! When you know me and trust me, suddenly that allows you to become comfortable. Being comfortable in front of the camera really allows your natural self to shine through and suddenly you can have some fun! Let’s face it, getting your photo taken can sometimes feel awkward - shouldn’t the goal always be to feel as natural as you can?!
I value you, your thoughts and our relationship together. As a small business owner, I truly value nothing MORE than my clients! My hope is that I can always be there for you - whether it's about your wedding photography, your schedule, sharing your excitement about your wedding shower or if you just want to vent about the Blackhawks losing the night before (hopefully they WIN!), I am there from you.
Photography is one of the most important things to plan on your wedding day. Who you choose as your wedding photographer will impact your wedding day experience, from that day to the day you receive your images.
When you connect with your photographer there is a better chance that you'll work well together and that you'll be thrilled with your wedding images and wedding memories.
My career is centered around holding a camera, but more importantly, seeing what my clients see, feeling what my clients feel and capturing those emotions and memories to the best of my ability.
My goal at the end of every wedding is to exceed my client's expectations. It's more than just “snapping photos” - I am seeing the beauty of the day and capturing memories that will last a lifetime.
Prior to the wedding we will not only have met several times and have done an engagement session together, but we will also create a wedding photography timeline that will be customized for your specific wedding day needs.
Every wedding is unique and every couple has different needs for the wedding experience. Please feel free to inquire for my full wedding photography rates. Custom rates for elopements and destination photography are also available.
