From the very first time we meet, until the end of the night on your wedding day, we are with you every step of the way.
We are here to not be wedding photographers, but rather to be storytellers. Your photographs will be as unique as your love story. They will say what you can't possibly say in 1,000 words.
Your photographs will not need to be explained. They will speak for themselves <3
I could post a fancy, formal welcome here, but as you will learn from looking at my images...that's just not my style. There is something more personal about candid shots, don't you think? I want you to feel welcome, and stay a while! We want to get to know you!
Something that sets me apart from other photographers is how I choose to engage with my clients. By the time your wedding day comes you will feel like we are friends!
I truly have your best interest at heart. I believe that God gave me an incredible gift, and the most amazing part of my job is sharing it with you!

In an age where artists such as myself compete with technology, the respect for the art of photography has been lost by some. It is easy to assume that my job consists of nothing more than snapping photos and sending those photos to clients, the digital age has spoiled us a little bit hasn't it? It is my goal to bring your story to life, without the luxury of words or music. I shoot with intention, I rely on my instinct and eye for detail to evoke emotion in every shot I take. I am not here to give you one shot, duplicated in multiple ways. I am here to deliver an exquisite final product and experience that you can only receive from me. Your images will be from an authentic moment, not a forced one, because I strive to remain authentic, original and genuine.
Education is what separates the ordinary from the extraordinary. After receiving my BA from Penn State, I have relentlessly pursued and continued my photography education on a daily, weekly, monthly, yearly basis. I am blessed to say I have been trained by world famous photographers such as Jose Villa and Yervant Photography International. My budget for education has no dollar amount attached to it. Without hesitation, I believe that knowledge and education are priceless.
My core belief is to be original and constantly create new, authentic art that is as unique as you are. I create my images with thought and purpose. Your wedding or portrait experience will be adventurous, unique, and fun. I am a true professional and a romantic at heart. I have the utmost respect for my craft. The digital age has made photographers out of many people, but it is not a photographer you are looking for, what you need is a storyteller. I put my heart and soul into every wedding, and the amount of work we put in before, during and after your wedding day or portrait session will exceed your expectations.
your WEDDING experience
We are so much more than photographers. I personally take my time getting to know each client before they ever book with us so that I can make sure we are the perfect fit!
Our traditional wedding day coverage includes a full day with me and my second shooter, a complimentary engagement session, private online viewing gallery, all of your photographs edited, high resolution digital photographs with printing rights and more.
Since our approach is much more personal, we only accept a limited number of weddings per year. We do this to ensure each client is the perfect fit fo us and that we will give them the photographic experience of their dreams. Your best interest is in our hearts, and you will feel like we are friends by the end of your time with us!
For investment information and availability, please send me a message personally using the contact form <3 The average wedding couple should be comfortable with a starting investment of $3600 for full wedding day coverage.
When you were a little girl and you dreamed about your wedding day, what did you imagine it would be like? When I photograph your wedding, I work with you every step of the way to bring that dream to life for you.
My style as a professional photographer is joyous, adventurous and creative. I live to explore every inch of God's beautiful landscape. Without the luxury of words or music, my photographs tell your story, and you will discover just how amazing photography can be when you're with the right person. The first step in the wedding planning process is to see if we are the right fit for each other!
I can imagine all of the emotions you are experiencing as you plan your wedding. I was once in your shoes not that long ago! One of the most important parts of my job is truly getting to know my clients. This allows us to form a relationship, and makes it so much easier for you to trust me with what I feel are the most important photographs of your life.
If I can teach every prospective client who visits my page only one thing, it would be that you need much more than just a picture taker on your wedding day. You deserve the best. A true professional who is a master of all types of light. Someone who can not only make you feel comfortable in front of the camera, but who can also inspire you to step out of your comfort zone. A master storyteller. An artist who knows the importance of time management and professionalism.

Why should I invest in you?
Ultimately, it comes down to you answering this question: what is it that I value the most on my wedding day? Every detail of the wedding can be changed except for two things: your future spouse and your photographs. The food can be fixed if it is over cooked, underdone or not ready. The music can be changed if the DJ doesn't have the dance floor rocking. What you can't ever get back are the moments that happen once in your lifetime. I can confidently tell you that you need someone who cares enough to notice every single detail of your story and who knows the importance of getting it right the first time. It does not matter the weather, the lighting, the venue, these things are all an excuse to picture takers as to why they delivered sub-standard images to you.
I am more than just the price tag. Would you pay the same amount of money for a Honda Civic as you would for a Lamborghini? If your answer is no, then why would you pay a photographer who doesn't have the same level of quality the same price as you would pay for one who does? I want you to know, our average client investment is $3000. The images you see here are what a $3000 photographic investment looks like.
I received my BA from the Pennsylvania State University - Main Campus. Which means I know the value of education. When you invest with me, you can take pride in knowing that I continually invest in my photographic education on a constant basis, multiple times per year. I travel the world working with other professional wedding photographers.
I do not do this because it is my job, I do this because it is my passion.
I am not here to give you a sales pitch or try to convince you to book me for your wedding day. I know I am not the right fit for absolutely every couple, just as every couple is not the right fit for me. I am here to tell you what you deserve in a wedding photography investment.
Is an engagement session included? What if we don't need one?
When you book our full day wedding package, yes, a complimentary engagement session is included! I absolutely love engagement sessions. They give the couple a great opportunity to see how I work and how it feels to be in front of my camera! Since the engagement session is complimentary, it is never removed from our packages to "make them cheaper" or exchanged for anything. It is entirely up to you whether or not you choose to utilize the engagement session that comes with the package, you do not have to schedule one if you don't want to :)
Do you provide a second photographer on wedding day?
Absolutely! Our full day package includes a second professional photographer. I believe it is crucial to have two photographers on wedding day because it allows us to get more than one perspective, work more efficiently and deliver you the best possible photographs. We are a family team, so you can take comfort in knowing that we work as a well-oiled machine! We don't hire a person for your day that we haven't met before or that we have only worked with a few times. Chemistry is important to have between the lead photographer and the second photographer!
How many images do you deliver?
This is entirely different for every wedding. Any photographer who promises X amount of images is possibly making promises they can't deliver on. Each wedding is different, each timeline is different. We typically deliver 400 - 700 finished wedding images per wedding, depending entirely on the wedding timeline. Which leads me to my next question!
Do you help me plan my wedding timeline?
I will personally work with every couple diligently before their wedding to help plan their wedding timeline so that they receive the maximum amount of photo time with me. I never realized how crucial it was to have the photographer involved in timeline planning with the couple, before I didn't timeline plan with the couple. This is not something that can be over-looked or brushed off. Timeline planning with me is absolutely crucial for you to receive the types of images you see here, and helps me do my job to the absolute best of my ability.
Do you take every client who inquires with you?
We receive about 250 inquiries annually for wedding day photography! That is a lot! While we would love to be able to serve every client who contacts us, we know it isn't always possible. We know that, just like shoes, we are not the right fit for every couple, and that every couple is not the right fit for us. We try our best to make the pre-wedding meeting beneficial to both us and the client to see whether or not we are a good fit for each other before we allow you to book with us. <3
I saw these shots on Pinterest, I like this look can we re-create it for me?
While I do love Pinterest for recipes, I do not use it to copy other photographers ideas. My main objective is to keep creating new, unique photographs that set my brand apart from everyone else. We will work together to create images that others want to re-create, because they are unique and beautiful.
