Your Wedding Experience Matters

* You'll get guidance to feel confident and have fun during your photography, so you can relax and be you.

* I book only 1 wedding per weekend because I’m committed to focusing all my energy on you

* I’ll be easily accessible, with timely responses and organization of the details. This also means listening to what you personally need.

* I have the experience to give you solutions to things like low lighting in your venue or unexpected weather. I also have ways to get your fun but rowdy relatives to participate during portraits.

* All love stories deserve to be told. All cultures, faiths, races, ethnicities, orientations, sizes and personalities are welcome in front of my camera.

Your wedding photography matters

because your relationship matters.

Wedding photography has the power to support your marriage by helping you celebrate it when you need it most- long after your wedding is over. 

Your pictures have the ability to bring back all the emotions and memory of how you felt the day your marriage began.  Wedding pictures are a gift to your relationship.

So when I say your wedding photography matters, I mean it.  It’s an investment in your marriage.  You won’t know the beautiful feeling of remembering your wedding until you actually experience it.

FAQS

• We're a little introverted, and nervous about our portraits. What can you do?

A lot of couples I photograph feel this way. I'm here to guide you through portraits. The style of posing I use allows you to focus on each other instead of looking at the camera. I'll direct you and guide you through your entire session. My goal is to give you confidence and capture the way you naturally are together.

• Will you do our engagement shoot?

If you want engagement pictures, let's do it! If you already did engagement pictures we can talk about what you'd like in your package instead.

• What if my wedding is 2 or more days long?

I can build a completely custom package for you to make sure you get the printed items you need (like albums), and the coverage you need for multiple days of celebration and events.

• What are your travel rates?

Travel within about 2 hours of Belle Plaine, MN is included. This covers the Twin Cities, St. Cloud, Mankato and Rochester areas. For weddings that require more travel, let's talk about it.

• How experienced are you?

I've been a working photographer for 10 years, and shooting weddings for eight years.

I started my career by doing commercial assisting in college, then graduated in 2008 and was employed by a corporate studio. In August of 2012, I started my own business full time.

• What if you haven't been to my venue?

There are 100's of wedding venues in Minnesota, and no single photographer has visited every venue out there. Part of being a professional is knowing how to step into a new location and still shoot amazing photography.

I'm always excited to travel somewhere new and bring a fresh perspective to your venue. I can do a tour so I'm familiar with venue spaces and lighting conditions before your wedding day.

• How many pictures do we get?

Quality is more important to me than a set number of shots. My goal is to deliver pictures that feel complete in telling your wedding story.

The final number of pictures you receive depends on how long I’m shooting and what events happen during the wedding. I'm happy to give you an estimate when we talk about your wedding plans.

• Can we print our pictures?

Yes! Please do. You get printing rights and permission to share your pictures on social media. You can print through my lab or download your files and use your preferred printer.

• How do you edit our pictures?

I edit your pictures to the same degree as the ones you see on my website using both Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. I value editing that looks professional, consistent and natural.

• When do we get our pictures back?

Weddings are delivered in about 8-10 weeks. Engagements take 2-3 weeks. This is because I take time to look at and edit each picture individually.
