Wedding photography isn't just a documentation of all the different events of a wedding day. Rather, it tells the story of one of the best days of your life.

You two have spent hours pouring over all the details - from the color of your napkins to the signage at the bar. Your wedding day is filled with small details that come together to tell the story of who you two are, and the hope you have for your future together.

So let's celebrate that!

I want you to look back at your wedding album and feel all warm and teary when you remember how your day went - not just the first kiss or gorgeous veil shots, but the simple moments.

The nervous glances before you lock eyes with your soon-to-be-spouse as you're coming down the aisle.
Grandpa letting loose + absolutely tearing it up on the dance floor to the Cha-Cha-Slide.

Those details make up the story of your wedding. You should be able to focus on what's going on in front of you, while I focus on what's going on around you. My goal is to capture the feeling of your wedding, not just the pretty photos.

But yes - we'll definitely get tons of pretty photos too.

I want to make the process of choosing your photographer as easy as possible! You already have enough to worry about. Check out some of my wedding + elopement packages below, and send me a message when you're ready to discuss a little more.

Process

the

One

You already did one of the harder steps + found me! But really, I know how hard it is to find a wedding vendor that you can trust + in your right price range. So seriously - pat yourself on the back for getting this far in your wedding planning process.

Use the form at the bottom of this page to send me an inquiry! I'll get back to you soon so we can officially kick off this partnership (or just provide more detail if you're still looking around). My wedding packages are customizable, so you can receive a quote based off exactly what you need for your wedding.

inquire

Two

If I'm one of your top contenders for a wedding photographer, we'll move forward with booking a consultation call. You'll receive a curated proposal + contract before our consultation so you'll have some time to review + come up with any questions.

During the consultation, we'll go through the proposal + contract and I'll explain what all the fine print means. If you're feeling good by the end of our meeting, we'll move forward with officially reserving your date. I require a 20% retainer to hold your date, and can create customized payment plans for you.

Three

If you already had an engagement session done or you are opting out, we'll skip this step. If you're on the fence on doing one, I highly recommend it! Most of my wedding packages already come with one, and you can use the photos for save the dates, wedding website, decor, etc.

We'll handpick a location together, and I'll assist with outfit selection if you'd like. During the session, you'll get to experience my candid posing structure that combines elements of posed + candid moments to create a gallery that represents you two as a couple.

All of my wedding clients receive a 25 page guide I created as a resource specifically for engaged couples in the Central Valley. It's full of wedding tips, vendor recommendations, and more info on working with me. It also includes a cute little gift that you'll appreciate on your wedding day.

I also offer a timeline consultation! I'll meet up with you about 6 weeks from the wedding to help you develop a customized timeline that you can share with all your vendors + wedding party.

Five

It's here! On the wedding day, I will arrive early to check in with you two and see how everything is going. If we're on schedule, I'll typically start capturing details + getting ready moments, before moving on to the next thing on the timeline we created.

If we're behind schedule, I'll help in whatever way needed + modify the timeline to provide a low-stress experience on your wedding day. I'll be by your side throughout the day + all the big moments, so by the end of the day we're probably going to feel like best friends.

Six

Besides the wedding day + engagement session, this is my favorite step.

I deliver sneak peaks from your wedding within 1 week, and deliver all wedding galleries within 2 months of your wedding date. You'll receive a website link to an online gallery with all of your photos, which makes it super easy to share with all the wedding guests.

The online wedding gallery has a store section that allows you to print directly from the gallery site, saving you loads of time + helping to get some of those beautiful prints from the wedding day up on your walls.

BONUS: All of my wedding packages include a print credit, which is essentially free money for you to order print products from the online gallery. Did I mention it was essentially free? Seriously one of my favorite parts.

We did it! Now it's tie to kick back, toast your personalized wedding champagne glasses, and enjoy married life together - you have definitely earned it after planning an entire wedding.

In addition to weddings, I also do family, newborn, branding, and senior sessions. We can definitely keep in contact for your next photo-related needs. As a client of mine, you will now receive a $25 credit that can be used for any future session you book with me. If you choose to refer me to someone else + they book with me, they will also receive a $25 credit, and your credit will increase to $50.
