the experience

I believe in photos with intention. Your experience will be catered to your unique needs, and love story. Love your partner's laugh? We will get them laughing and get some gorgeous candids of your favorite smile! I want to capture the whys/the hows of your love -every bit of it. We may get messy, trek through some mud, water, and tall grass, but it will be so worth it. A little dirt, sure, but a small price for fun memories and of course the photos. 

YOU DESERVE AMAZING PHOTOS !!!! Amazing photos that showcase all the intricacy of your love story. But, you also deserve a dang good time, and an experience from the moment you book to long after you get your photos. I want to chat with you about EVERYTHING! The first time you met, to the engagement. I want to be there to help  every step of the way. Needing help finding vendors? On it!! Adjust your dress during the day, think of it as done! Need a drink from the bar? Your favorite cocktail on the way! Seriously! I'm here for it all!

COUPLES STARTING AT $300
WEDDINGS STARTING AT $2,000

questions

Frequently asked

HOW MANY IMAGES WILL I RECEIVE?

Dependent on the shoot! I will never cap images-meaning if we are getting some good stuff I won't stop at a certain number. All images will be high quality jpeg. Minimum of 100 for couples, 300 for elopements, and 500 for weddings. 

How Do you Accept Payments?

Payments are traditionally made online through Honeybook. What I do require is a 30% deposit upon booking. The remainder is due one week before your wedding.  If you are unable to make online payments, checks can be accepted. I get weddings can be expensive, payment plans can be developed to cater to your needs.

WHAT If My Date Changes?

If you have booked, signed the contract, and paid the deposit, at that time the deposit is nonrefundable. I am not out to steal your money, but due to the nature of  this business, it often means I have had to say no to others for your date. That being said, would love to reschedule with a new date.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I HAVE TO CANCEL?

If you have booked, signed the contract, and paid the deposit, at that time the deposit is nonrefundable. Any payments after, will be refunded. 
I am not out to steal your money, but due to the nature of business, it often means I have had to say no to others for your date. 

WHAT IF THERE'S BAD WEATHER?

I often will say let's go for it! Kissing and dancing in the rain can be absolutely stunning! Wind in your hair, can make for some absolutely epic images! We can additionally switch to indoors if it suits! Now if the weather is truly dangerous, absolutely let's pick a new date. 

WHere are you located?

STL BABY!!! I Love St. Louis, MO... but I ABSOLUTELY ADORE TRAVELING! Nothing is too far! I have a dream of seeing every country and every state so you will be helping me reach my dreams! 

What Are your travel Fees?

My travel fees will be included in your price! Budgeting a wedding is the WORST! The last thing you need is hidden fees! All inclusive pricing here! Upon inquiring, you will receive my pricing guide. There are no travel fees associated for wedding in the greater St. Louis area! Domestic and International travel fees will be included if you are outside of STL region. 

What if you Have Never BeeN?

A new location is no problem! My flights will be booked early so no need to worry about delays. I will always scout locations. In St. Louis, I will take it upon myself to scout your location, and I already have some favorite spots! 

WHAT IF you Can't Be There?

I am dedicated to YOU!!!! For me to not be there, I would have to be at the hospital or a family emergency/death. I hope and pray for that not to happen. In the unfortunate event, I will ensure to personally find a talented replacement photographer. 

Do you do albums or Prints?

I do not have my own shop yet! I have found a trusted shop. You can order quality prints directly from your gallery! You can order albums as well! Or I can also personally design an album for you. That is an add -in you can purchase with your wedding package!

WHat do I need to Wear?

I can send you an outfit guide! I also want you to feel comfortable and show off your style! I am here to help in anyway so don't hesitate. 

Will you Photoshop us?

Nope!! I believe in your authentic and your real self. You are beautiful, and twenty years from now you are going want to see photos of YOU! Not some computer created barbie/ken. Now I am not evil! Pimples, food in your teeth (serious problem of mine), cuts/scars I will brush away! If it is going away in less than a month I got you!

Can I REceive Raw Images?

I am sorry, but no. When hiring me, you are hiring more than someone to just click away. I believe you are hiring me for my editing style as well. If you feel like something slipped, just reach out, but trust me I love giving you all the goodness.

Do you shoot outside of Weddings?

Babies? Seniors? Family? The photos you need are endless!!! I know life doesn't stop after "I do". That being said, weddings are my speciality. I like to offer my self to weddings first and for most because that is where I serve clients best. Those who book weddings with me, I can't wait o follow your life adventure!!! When scheduling permits, I love to add on any additional adventures! 

Can we See A full Gallery?

Absolutely! With your inquiry, I can send one your way!
