When it comes to one of the biggest days in a couple’s lives,
I simply don’t hold back.
I always hear things like “wow, you were everywhere!”, but also how subtle & discreet in the moment that we (Rob, my husband & I) are.
I become more than just a photographer, like with any portrait client, and I naturally grow close. And I don’t think there has been one wedding that I haven’t cried through, photographing or not. Maybe it’s the countless emails we will exchange over the months leading up to the day, or because I truly feel that to document as candidly as I do, you must dive in deep and really connect. Or because love just makes me happy & sappy.
Every one of the 30+ nuptials that I’ve photographed has been unique, full of so much love and have made me feel as more than just a photographer. More a vivid story teller, combined with a very special guest. I feel truly honored to be by your sides.
I adore love and I aim to give each couple something entirely meaningful to remember their day by. I want you to feel these moments for years to come like you never left the dance floor. To be able to show these frames to your grandchildren later and still feel those very days emotions.

Uh, where do I begin?!
Slow down and don't stress! First and foremost.
Our main step is making sure your date is available on my calendar. From there, we'll chat about your wedding day details, your ideal photographic needs and we'll get a feel for one another's personalities. If we hit it off and you think I'm THE ONE, I'll ask you reserve your date with a non-refundable $275 retainer, ASAP.
How do you photograph weddings?
The way that I document wedding days is well...documentary-style. I love all of the different details that come with each wedding. The family heirlooms incorporated like a beautiful game of I Spy, the children involved in the day or the favors you both painstakingly went over & over (and over...) months ago. The beautiful florals to the yummy cake...or donuts. (My personal favorite!) And all of the emotions that the day brings.
Where are you based and do you travel?
I'm based out of West Michigan, but I will gladly travel with you! Just tell me when to pack my bags! Destination weddings are always priced on a case-to-case basis.
When will we get our photos?
Within a few days of your wedding, you will receive a link to an online gallery full of previews. Over the next few weeks, you will see preview images here and there, getting you excited for your final images. Approximately 6-8 weeks after your big day, your USB will finally be finished and then will be mailed or personally delivered to you. Every single image is hand-edited and retouched by me and depending on the season of your nuptials, finalization time can take up to 10 weeks. Shortly after, I'll have your complimentary prints or album ready, pending on which package you ultimately choose!
How many pictures will we receive?
For an average 8-hour day, I turn-around approximately 800 -1000 fully-edited, high-resolution images.
Who photographs weddings with you?
I photograph every wedding with my husband Rob beside me, instilling the notion that love is indeed weird...annnd pretty dang amazing!
Whether he's second-shooting or just my plus one, life just runs smoother with him by my side. He is definitely my support person, my other half and we are always told we are so 'in sync'. While I’m (quite literally) all over the place - he is photographing details and alternate angles, always catching another unique shot of the day.
Together, we believe that the biggest day of your lives should vividly illustrate a timeless story of everything you are to one another. And the frames of the day should tell it fluidly for years to come. That's why we strive to create timeless, emotional and creative frames of nuptials.
