When you contact me:

I’ll send you a full price brochure.  I also want to talk to you personally.   I believe that it takes the photographer and couple working together as a team to create the best wedding photography.

Relationship building & photography planning:

When we collaborate together for your wedding we can use emails, questionnaires, phone calls, video chats, or in-person meetings to plan your photography.  We’ll talk a lot during your engagement shoot, and do a venue walk through if I haven’t been to your venue before.  Plus, we’ll have a fantastic time together at our final planning meeting about one month before your wedding.

Christa went above and beyond not only before and during our time working with her but after. She is extremely talented in her work and I would 100% recommend her every time.

FAQS

• How Soon Should We Book You?

As soon as your wedding date is confirmed. All dates are first come first served. To reserve your wedding day a 20% non-refundable retainer and signed wedding contract is needed.

• WHAT WILL YOU PHOTOGRAPH AT MY WEDDING?

I want to tell the complete story of your wedding day, including portraits, your ceremony, and really great reception shots celebrating your marriage. I want to photograph the people and details that are important to you. People who work with me describe their pictures as a mix of modern portraits and documentary photography, with attention to your personal details.

• WHAT IF IT RAINS, SNOWS, IS VERY BRIGHT OR DARK DURING MY WEDDING?

I enjoy the variety of opportunities for creative solutions at weddings. I have solutions for all of these situations, a plan B (and C, and D!).

• WHAT GEAR WILL YOU USE TO PHOTOGRAPH MY WEDDING?

Professional cameras and lenses, on and off camera lighting for dark spaces and nighttime portraits. Most of my gear is Canon, but it's not really about a brand. It's about having the right tools to do my job.

• DO YOU TRAVEL?

Yes! Travel within Minneapolis, St. Paul, Stillwater, St. Cloud, and Mankato areas is complimentary. I’m also happy to take a trip to the North Shore, or travel to you anywhere in the continental United States.

• HOW MANY PICTURES DO WE GET?

My goal is to create a collection of photographs that tell the story of your wedding. The number of pictures you receive depends on how long I’m shooting and what kinds of events or portraits we capture during the wedding. Each wedding is different, and I don’t limit myself on how many pictures to deliver.

• WILL YOU DO OUR ENGAGEMENT SHOOT?

If you want me to, yes! Most weddings packages include a pre-wedding shoot. If you need engagement pictures, we will do those. If you already have engagement pictures we can do a short shoot so you can experience working with me

• HOW EXPERIENCED ARE YOU?

I have almost 10 years of experience as a professional photographer. Since mid-2012 I’ve been a full-time photography business owner. Before that, I worked in a corporate studio and as a commercial assistant. I also have a Bachelor’s degree in Visual Communications.

• DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?

Yes. If your location requests proof of insurance I’m happy to send it.

• WHEN WILL WE GET OUR PHOTOS BACK?

Weddings are delivered in 8-10 weeks. Engagements take 2-3 weeks. I've found this is a time frame that allows me to do my absolute best work while being detailed oriented about your editing.

• CAN WE SEE YOUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY TIMELINE?

Every wedding is different, and I follow your schedule. Together we will plan how your photography fits into your wedding day. I’ll ask lots of questions to get a feel for the flow of your day so we’re all prepared for the photography. We’ll have a final planning meeting about 1 month before your wedding.

Get in touch.  I’d love to hear from you!
