i can’t wait to hear about the wedding you’re dreaming up. no matter what kind of celebration you’re planning, i’m immensely humbled to be curating the love you share and turning it into a story. choosing the right photographer to document your day beautifully is one of the most important aspects of the wedding planning process. remember that you’re making a long term investment and curating a love story that will be captured on film forever.
during your wedding, i won’t just be awkwardly taking photos and making small talk. i’ll be your biggest fan: cheering you on, maintaining your day with ease, and bonding with those closest to you. like a true storyteller, i make a massive effort to remain respectful, unobtrusive, and to go unnoticed by guests until the champagne pops and the dress is a little dirty. but when the lights go down and the dj opens, you bet i’ll be dancing alongside your grandma and toasting with your bridesmaids.
(all northeast weddings require a travel fee).

let's create your legacy
tell me about your wedding photography services.
first off, thank you for your interest! you must be in love and excited to plan your epic day. photographs are the one thing you are left with after your wedding — let’s make them count. on your wedding day, it's my goal to translate how you felt into a selection of artful, emotive and natural photographs that serve as a stamp your love story. my job is to remind you that the love you share with your partner is deep, raw, and a reflection of your lifelong commitment to each other. just show up ready for the day of your life and i'll take care of the rest.
my only request for you is that you leave a piece of yourself in your day. just as you'll throw yourselves into your steadfast love and share it with others, i promise my creativity and talent will be reflected in your wedding day images.
wedding pricing begins at $4,000 and each one is built entirely for you.
how many weddings do you photograph each year?
i photograph 18-20 weddings each year. i do this so i can give my couples the best experience and the best of me, physically, emotionally and creatively. also! i do more than photograph weddings! i work with a lot of families and brands regularly, so you can expect that if i don't have a wedding one weekend, i'm either editing or playing dinosaur with some cute kiddos or styling a product shoot.
during weddings, do you shoot with a second photographer?
i can if you'd like! about half my clients request a second photographer to help document their day. it's great to have two sets of hands on location to document each moment from every angle. second shooters are added a la carte style.
is an engagement session included in our wedding collection? how do they work?
i offer complimentary engagement sessions to all wedding couples. it's such an important aspect of your wedding process because it's a time for you and your loved one to share with me who you are as a couple. it's a time to capture your essence, your intimacy. i'm up for whatever you want to do — trek through a sandy beach, tag along to a porch hangout, hang at a cabin, skinny dip, hike, surf, explore a new area! let it make sense for you!
i'm here to help you plan something extraordinary and give guidance when needed. i'll happily offer up any cheesy joke or take a shot of tequila/vodka/whiskey with you. i'm the fun kind of hired help.
i focus on what poses or moments speak to you as a couple (no half smiles or weird feelings here) so i can bring out the foundation of your relationship. i want you guys to be fully yourselves, whether that means settling into quiet moments or goofing off and slapping butts. just enjoy some much needed time with your fiancé! i'm here to help be a guide, scout for the best light, highlight your emotions, but mostly to observe and find amusement in who you two are.
where should we do our engagement session?
your engagement session isn't just about getting some nice pictures for your save-the-dates, it's about documenting another part of your story outside of the wedding. choose a location that matters most to you, one that combines your passions, and one that we may not necessarily be able to recreate on your wedding day.
what should we wear to a session?
i have a style guide i'd be happy to share with you!
we're interested in engagement photography services, but not wedding coverage. do you offer that?
yes, absolutely! email me with your vision and i'll send you a custom quote.
how many images will be delivered from our session?
generally, you can expect 60-100 images per hour. i promise to include more than enough images that reflect your day, as i never want to withhold anything that might be special to you.
all images will be uploaded to a beautiful online gallery and available for unlimited downloads at no additional fee. everything is already included! let me know if you're interested in albums or individual prints — i offer layout design and creative assistance.
i don't watermark any images. these images are your memories and are meant to be shared.
do you travel? if so, are there travel fees?
absolutely! i am currently a bi-coastal business and split my time between los angeles and new england and will gladly jump in a car/bus/plane to come photograph you. i do require an airfare fee for all 2020-2021 east coast weddings.
do you photoshop?
i don't photoshop or alter the images of you in any way. i believe in positive body image and i have faith that the quality of my work will reflect the beauty and realness of your day. of course, if there's a temporary blemish that wouldn't normally be there, i'll happily remove it if requested.
what about fees, cancellations or rescheduling?
a non-refundable retainer fee of 30% is due once your photography contract is signed. upon deposit receipt, your date is officially locked in. for weddings, i require the remaining payment be due one month before your wedding (this can split the final payment into two installments, if you'd like). all other photography clients can pay their remainder on the day of the shoot.
if you need to reschedule your session due to weather, being sick or something else, i am happy to accommodate to your schedule but request at least 24 hours notice. if you choose to cancel your session, there is no cancellation fee but please note you will not be refunded the retainer fee.
heaven forbid I can't make your wedding (would only happen if it were out of my control) i would do my absolute best to find a replacement photographer that I trust and who possesses a similar style. if, for any reason I can't make it to your wedding, you will be fully refunded.
what can we do with our photos? can we post them on social media?
all photos from your session can be used for personal use, both formal and informal. add them to your wedding album, use them for your save-the-dates, send holiday cards or thank you notes. and of course, they look awesome framed in your home.
please share on social media! i just ask that you don't edit or add filters to them since i've already done all of the editing for you.
