here I am

Are you looking for a photographer who is going to be the most fun photographer you’ve ever had? You want someone who is making sure your dress is perfect for pictures, gathering your bridesmaids, making sure you have champagne at all times, and is just overall extremely fun? You want your photographer to be able to handle your crazy groomsmen and make sure they show up on time, not completely wasted ….yet. You want your photographer out on the dance floor dancing while capturing those “must have so I can blackmail them later” or “insane dance moves?”

THAT IS ME.
I want to show you what your day FELT like, not just what it looked like.

Leading up to your wedding day we'll finalize the wedding timeline and shot list so that come the BIG DAY, the only thing you have to do is relax and be in the moment!

FAQ

Questions. Everyone’s got them. I put together some of the most common ones.
If you have more for me, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

Engagement/Bridal Sessions?

Engagement and Bridal Sessions come with select wedding packages, as well are an optional add-on that can be booked anytime. They each come with a complimentary 16x24 professional display print.

Do we get all of the photos that are taken the day of our wedding?

Simply put? No. However, you will get the best of the best. I promise you that. I will go through and eliminate all of the blurry, half blinking, closed eye, unflattering images, and will deliver the very the best photos from the batch. There is also no limit on the amount of photos you will receive. If the picture is good? It will be properly edited and delivered to you. I do not withhold usable images from you!

Do we get to pick which images are edited?

This would hold up my editing process and work flow by weeks, if not months. So the answer is no. This is where you have trust the professional you have hired. Just like when you go out to eat you, don’t ask the chef to inspect the ingredients they are about to use to ensure you are getting the best of the best. Trust me- I got you!
Again, I promise I am not withholding anything from you or hiding any good images.

How do I pay?

I accept check, cash, money order, PayPal, and Venmo payments. Credit cards are accepted but may be subject to a 3% transaction fee.
A $500 deposit is required to guarantee your date. The remaining balance is due no later than 30 days prior to wedding date.

How much are travel fees?

No travel fees within 2 hours of Fayetteville or Greenville, NC. I can also shoot in Pensacola or Jacksonville, FL without travel fees.
I LOVE destinations and am always willing to travel; I am great at keeping travel fees as minimal as possible.

How soon do I get my pictures?

My turnaround time for weddings is 6 weeks. I always try for sooner because I hate having things to edit sitting there staring at me, stressing me out. I can get them sooner if you absolutely cannot wait. There’s a $1000 fee and you will have them within 7 days.
You will have sneak peeks up within 24 hours, so it’s up to you!

Do we get the RAW/Unedited images?

I do not give out unedited images. They do not represent my brand, and are not what you hired me to produce.

Do you meet with clients?

ABSOLUTELY. If you’re not local, that is 100% ok. Let’s schedule a facetime session or phone call. Whatever is easier.
If you’re local, or we happen to be in the same city at the same time, HECK YES. Let’s meet for coffee, or lunch - you name it!
Please note, my booked clients come first. If I basically drop everything to be able to chat, talk details, meet for a drink to forget about wedding planning stress. You name it. I’m your girl. Remember when I said we are going to be best friends after this? I mean it.

Do you have a second shooter?

Yes. Most collections include her. She’s my sister. She’s pretty dang awesome. We make a great team. If I’m on one side, she’s on the other. I’m focusing on the bride, she’s focusing on the groom. We move as one. YOUR WHOLE DAY will be covered.
