A personal message regarding selecting your wedding photographer

Finding your wedding vendors should feel like finding your dream team. They should be supportive, informative, and encouraging, in addition to being great at their profession. It's a special honor to be chosen to photograph each couple's union, and it's not lost on me what great trust these brides and grooms have in my ability to handle documenting their wedding day with care.

While wedding photography is a job to some, to me it is a life calling. There are wedding vendors who do their jobs, and there are wedding vendors who truly serve their clients. As your wedding photographer, I’ll start by giving you resources for mapping out the perfect stress-free timeline, finding other amazing vendors to support your vision, and planning an engagement session that will get you warmed up and ready for the camera on your wedding day. No two wedding days are the same, and I can't wait to hear about yours! 

What makes me different from other Staunton Wedding Photographers?

Do you offer studio photography?
I do! I have a small studio in Staunton, Virginia. The studio is a collaborative effort with multiple photographers. We will be opening our doors in spring 2022.

Do you sell albums and prints?
Yes! Purchase is not required. After your images are ready, you can come view samples of wall art, albums, and print options at my studio in Staunton.

What are your prices?
Wedding collections range from $2,900 (elopement) to $6,400, but the average investment is $4,900.

Do you do newborn photography?
While I love the chance to photograph precious newborns, it’s not my specialty. I do offer in-home lifestyle family portraits and studio mini sessions, typically for existing clients.

Do you travel?
Yes! I primarily serve Virginia clients, but am available to travel elsewhere. I have a current passport and am comfortable with air travel with my equipment.

How far in advance should I book?
For weddings, inquire as soon as you have booked your venue and know your photography budget. It’s okay to inquire up to 18 months before your wedding date. For sessions, this depends on the season. In peak fall and spring seasons, I may not have openings for 4-6 weeks due to demand.

What should I wear for my photo session?
I’ll help you figure this out! I offer styling consultations as well as a comprehensive guide to coordinating your outfits and accessories.
