Fully experience your wedding day.
Relive it through photographs every day after.
The art of truly personalized wedding photographs means choosing a photographer that listens to you. Your wedding is not a glorified photoshoot. Because while you want gorgeous photographs of you and your spouse, the wedding photos you will actually cherish most are the brief and candid interactions with friends and family that came from all over to celebrate you. I promise not to hold you captive for endless portraits, so you get to actually enjoy your time with these people.
Enjoy your wedding day, and get the privilege of forgetting about the details.
I take the stress out of timelines, shot lists, family formals, and wedding day minutia to create an experience you enjoy and photographs that are memorable. My hope is that you get to stay in the moment, enjoying this once-in-a-lifetime day with your absolute favorite people. And afterwards, you have a wedding album that helps you relive that incredible day and tell those family stories for decades.
As a bonus, maybe we become friends, and we create some unique and personal artwork to hang in your home.
What Would Your Wedding Photographs Look Like If You Could Be Fully Present, Truly Enjoying Every Moment?
When you hire a wedding photographer, you are giving someone the exclusive opportunity to tell the story of your wedding day. You’re going to relive these moments through your memories and their unique perspective–theirs only. This is an important decision!
Believe it or not, you’re also bringing your wedding photographer into your inner circle of people for the day. They will impact how you experience and remember your wedding day. They’ll be there through your pre-wedding jitters, laying witness to the start of your marriage, and capturing your first moments as husband and wife. How they support you, interact with your family, and make space for you to stay in the moment on your wedding day is extremely impactful to your wedding experience.
The Wedding Photography Experience
Personal, authentic wedding photography
Your wedding is about you two, and I’m here to be an active supporter of that, even if it breaks every tradition in the book.
I give loads of time and attention to detail to each client. Your experience with your photographer impacts the way you will view and remember the images in the future. I want you to have only the best memories of this day. This is why I work with limited couples who truly value intentional photography.
I celebrate this love and contentment you’ve found in each other. I want to know your unique story. I welcome you, no matter your size, shape, gender, religion, color, ethnicity, or past.
Let’s talk about what YOU need from your wedding photographer.
Wedding Photography Packages
Pricing for wedding photography collections varies depending on your needs. I customize options for all my couples, based on their priorities for their wedding day. I photograph everything from tiny mountaintop elopements to 300-person multicultural, multi-day ballroom celebrations. Eight years’ experience has taught me to always start pricing with a conversation about what you need and what matters most to you. Weddings are personal. But an important reference point for you to know is that weddings begin at $4,400 and build from there, while elopements begin at $2,900. Most couples invest $5,400 for a wedding photography collection.
Wedding Photography Testimonials
What drew me towards wedding Photography.
I could have specialized in anything, but I chose wedding photography. Watching two families come together is unlike anything else. After dozens of weddings, I have come to love the emotion in the transitional moments and unexpected experiences of each wedding day. I used to look forward to sunset portraits with my clients the most.
But now, I love returning wedding photos filled with sweet looks between mother and son, bridesmaids wiping a tear away, the awe on a groom’s face as he first sees his bride, and the giggling flower girl taking her dress for that first twirl. I will give you great portraits to hang on your walls too, but these unplanned and unposed memories are the moments that make your wedding unique and memorable. I focus my whole experience around making more time for that.
Whether you realize it yet or not, choosing a wedding photographer is a very personal choice. Staunton is full of talented wedding photographers, and our style, approach, perspective, and demeanor are all a little different. I created this page to tell you all about how I work and make sure that we’re a great match. If not, many of these of photographers are great friends of mine, who I’d love to introduce to you!
