They surround themselves with a community that helps to cultivate a deeply rooted foundation. They want an intentional marriage, one more beautiful then their wedding.

THE WEDDING • Is rich with tradition, but has a current flavor. • Has special celebrations to honor their marriage and covenant with God. • Creates an event that encourages their loved ones to participate in. • Points people’s minds and hearts straight to what is really happening.

CAPTURE I am here to help guide you through making the decisions that are necessary to capture the lasting qualities you are looking for. Determine what type of coverage that will best fit to help you have a stress-free day. Hear your specific needs and customize the experience to meet them.

PRESERVE Technology is forever changing, and although it has made great strides to help us connect, certain moments should not be reduced to just a click. Let me share my gifts with you, then use every ounce of my experience to guide you through the picking process to help you preserve what is truly important.

SHARE Sharing allows us to bring others into our unique experiences. On your wedding day, allow me the opportunity to photograph your beautiful beginning, preserve it for years to come, then give you the tools to share it with the ones you love the most.

DISPLAY Dedicated to capturing joyful moments, then displaying them as one-of-a-kind stylish pieces of artwork. I want you to have the opportunity to connect with those sweet moments daily, allow them be the focal point of your home!

T H E W EDDI N G E X P E R IE N C E FAQ S ENGAGEMENTS I love it when couples ask me to photograph them in a location that is special to them! I book engagement sessions at least two months in advance, a minimum of six months before the wedding event. If you include an engagement session in your collection, we will schedule that after booking!

DIGITAL COLLECTION A second photographer and myself, average a final number of approximately 75-100 curated images per hour of coverage. The photographs will be available in a personal online gallery, used for viewing and selecting images for any products purchased. If you would like to purchase the digital collection, the digital image files will come with a print release (for personal printing only) and are available via a digital download.

COVERAGE I am asked often if eight hours is enough time to capture the full wedding story, the answer is YES! The main goal is to secure and save your date. Later, you can always add additional hours of coverage when you have a better idea of your timeline.

SHOOTING STYLE I am both interactive and discreet throughout the wedding day. There will be parts of the day when I will need to be in control to accomplish everything that needs to be done to help stay on time. Then there will be moments when you shouldn’t even know I am there! I teach couples how to pose and interact during the engagement session, so they know what to expect and are naturals by the wedding day.

BOOKING Once you have decided the Wedding Experience is right for you, the next step is to secure your date. I will send you a contract and investment packet, this will walk you through all the specifics. When you are ready, save your date by signing the contract and paying the retainer online. Once booked, we will then set up an appointment to look through albums, pick the size and decide on the details of your legacy.
