photographing weddings is the honor of my life - i don't take this role lightly and put my heart + soul into photographing your wedding authentically, with a balance between attention to detail and letting moments happen naturally. essentially, i am close enough to capture it all, but leave space for you both to embrace the intimate and chaotic, once in a lifetime moments with your people.

put simply, my philosophy is to deliver a gallery that allows you to relive the celebration of your marriage and to edit the images in a way that will stand the test of time. photos that you'll always look back on with a smile and can pass down for generations.

every moment matters

i strive to make you both feel your best and take portraits that bring out your personalities and the love you share for each other. some may not be huge into photos (you'll be smiling a lot in one day) but i promise that making time for a session is always worth your while and will be the time during the busy day that you two need to take a step back, slow down, and cherish the moments together. 

 

also, i'm sure you've seen super rad wedding portraits and are like 'dang i wish that was me' (i do it too), well, on your day, that is y'all! your time to shine, so i will bring my creativity in my carry-on and we will have fun during our time for portraits.

i just hyped up portraits super hard, but i truly believe that the photos of the 'in-between' moments are what allow you to re-live your wedding through photographs. i try my best to be around for the hugs with loved ones, your friend spilling a beer on themselves, your aunt's silly dance moves, and capture all of the little details you worked hard to bring together so beautifully.

let's chat - when looking for a wedding photographer, what is important to you? i'll break it down to see if i can answer some of your q's and see if we're a good fit!

a photographer's style.


defining style is tough. but there's for sure a difference in styles between moody/bright or natural/warm tones. i always describe my style - in my own head usually - as being natural, but you can tell someone edited it professionally (lol). i like to keep my images timeless in nature, but also stylistic/artistic. i value the art of photography but realize that something that's 'in-style' now, might not always be. and, that style varies from eye to eye. so i approach my work to be something i find aesthetically pleasing and truly hope my clients feel the same. style matters to me a lot too, so i'm glad you opened this tab! if you have additional questions about editing/portrait style, hmu.




pricing in our budget.


totallyyyy feel you on this one. budgeting is TOUGH, i can't imagine for a wedding. you want someone who's good, but in your budget - i get it and want to help you where i can. my packages and pricing are listed below. 'starting at' states that this is roughly the price range your package will be at, without any add-ons or modifications. i have payment plan options available and am flexible, within reason, to accomodate your budget while staying fair across all of my clients. this is also where i'll plug that there is SO much that goes into photography that is unseen. you're not paying for me to show up and take pictures, that would be a disservice to you. you're investing into yourselves, for me to photograph/preserve your wedding memories, as well as supporting my small biz that i'm constantly investing into so i can bring my best self forward for your + other's weddings. love you - talking money is hard, it's weird. but it's something we gotta do and i vow to make your investment worth while.




a photographer's experience.


hi, yes, i am ~relatively~ new to wedding photography solo. i understand why experience matters, and while i may seem new, i have been photographing weddings for 4 years now! i began assisting in 2017 and have second-shot about 60 weddings. i am blessed to have begun booking solo and value the trust given to me from my couples. i am investing into my business year-round to deepen my skills/experience to bring you the best experience. experience, to me, is something so hard to define. someone who has done 2 weddings could bring as much talent as someone doing so for decades. i hope you find that my work shows growth through the years and entrust in my abilities to make some photo magic.




uh, ashley .. all of these are important to me!


same - these are all such important things to consider! i broke it down this way so i can hopefully answer some FAQs and help you begin your decision on selecting a wedding photographer. there are so many talented ones in our area and i am happy to point you to someone who can best meet your needs. while i hope its me (lol), nooo hard feelings! just happy we crossed paths! but, if you do feel like i'd be a good fit, please reach out :) i can't wait to talk about all of this with you and hear the details of your day you've got planned so far. thanks for taking the time to read this.
