Welcome to wedding photographs with spirit and romance – images that will still be authentic and beautiful a generation from now, when your grandchildren ask you to tell the story of your wedding day.
You might be worried about hiring a photographer who loves candid moments because you think I won’t get those traditional, smiling at the camera shots that parents love!
Rest assured, you will get plenty of those traditional moments and so much more.
You may think you’re awkward in front of the camera, or that you won’t appear as happy or natural as other couples. The truth is, every couple says they’re worried about feeling awkward and not knowing what to do with their hands! I take care of that by giving you guidance to bring out your natural interactions without being “posey.” If you can laugh and snuggle with your partner, I will do the rest!
I specialize in genuine photos that capture real emotions and connections. My expertise in documentary and portrait photography provides a photojournalistic look at your day, capturing the essence of your unique celebration in an artful way. I provide digital images and heirloom print albums (and more!) that tell the story of your day in pictures. I’m here to help take the stress out of at least one part of your day – the photographs.
Collections start at $3,000 and include your fully edited image files, two photographers, and at least eight hours of coverage to tell your complete wedding-day love story.
If you’re choosing to invest in high-quality photography, those images deserve a classy, elegant home after the wedding! I offer high-end, leather-bound Legacy Albums for my wedding clients. The images are printed straight onto thick pages, and those pages lay flat when opened. The covers are wrapped with top-grain leather or linen and can include an image on the cover. This is a keepsake you’ll be showing your children and grandchildren one day!
Your edited digital files are delivered in an online gallery for easy downloading and sharing, and some collections also include an elegant USB “mirror drive” in a linen storage box.
This gorgeous, handmade linen storage box is the perfect place to keep your mirror USB drive when you’re not looking through your photos. The storage box also includes a place for a 5x5 print from your wedding.
Each collection includes beautiful, white-bordered art prints on thick matte paper. Holding these velvety prints in your hand is a completely different experience from looking at photos on the computer screen – and that’s why each collection includes some tangible professional prints for you to have and hold.
Glass image boxes and white-bordered art prints are elegant, accessible and beautiful ways to display your wedding images – and who doesn’t love looking through printed photographs? These timeless glass boxes with art prints can be added onto any collection.
An engagement session is such a great idea for so many reasons! An engagement session gives us the chance to work together before your wedding day, which helps you get comfortable in front of the camera. You’re able to get comfortable with me and how I work, so when I show up to photograph your wedding, we already know each other and taking your wedding-day photos feels so much more natural. I also get to see how you two interact and the best ways to photograph you, ultimately giving you even better pictures on your big day!
Yes! I always include a second professional photographer for all weddings. This is one of the most important days of your life, and weddings have many moving parts and can be unpredictable. A second photographer allows for more flexibility and more complete coverage, different angles of your ceremony, and more photos of your guests. I also bring a photography assistant to help with gear, organizing family during the family portraits, etc.
Yes! All of the photographs you receive are edited, meaning they are all color-corrected and finished, ready to be printed and shared. You receive the best pictures from each part of your day.
No! These images are yours to keep and share, and they are not watermarked.
This depends on many factors, including the number of hours I’m photographing, but I typically deliver at least 800 photos from a nine-hour wedding day.
Most of my weddings take place within two hours of the Nashville area, and I typically don’t travel farther than that. However, if you love my photography style and really want me to photograph your wedding, let’s talk!
I use professional Nikon camera bodies and lenses and lots of gear to go with it! While I prefer natural light, I’m skilled at using flash photography, and I’m able to work in any lighting situation and to create my own light when needed. Wedding photographers need to be able to adapt to any lighting situation, and I’m able to do that with confidence.
ASAP! My calendar starts filling up at least a year in advance.
