2020 PRICELIST + FAQ
FOR LOVE, CURIOSITY & WONDER
You are in love + you are someone that wants authentic, one of a kind images of your wedding day. You want real emotions captured as beautifully as your styled details. Or maybe you just like the pretty colors in my photos. Either way, I'm so glad you're here.
I am an MFA graduate & multidisciplinary artist. Photography was (and continues to be) my first passion. Weddings allow me to combine my fine art background with my love of connecting with people. I enjoy being a positive, supportive presence on an emotional day and turning that day into a visual story. Share with me your vulnerability, trust and creativity and I will do my best to represent that honestly and beautifully, with the eye of an artist and the sensitivity of a friend.
On your wedding day, I take a journalistic approach to documenting events and details. My presence is laid back and non-intrusive. You may not even notice me outside of one on one time. During portraits, we'll talk + interact to create natural looking, candid photographs that capture your unique energy.
Below you will find customizable wedding packages. All collections have a retainer of $1000, so you can secure your date without having every single detail of your wedding day figured out. I'm more than happy to be a resource for timeline, planning, styling and more. If this page overwhelms you or you're not sure what you need, that's okay! Email me and we'll talk it through.

How would you describe your style?
Visually, my style is artistic and colorful. Others have described my work as dreamy, glowy, nostalgic, magical. I identify with all of these things. My shooting style is mostly unposed, photojournalistic. I don't want to make your day into something that it wasn't with lots of post production. I do my best to take creative, interesting photos with the available light, backdrops and details of your day.
I have created a wedding guide for tips on making your day as photogenic as possible!
How long have you been a photographer? What gear do you use?
I got my first film camera at 13, studied photography in college and graduate school and started photographing weddings in 2014. So, 16+ years taking photos, BFA and MFA in photography, fifth year in business! I've even taught photography at college level.
I use Canon 5D Mark 3, 6D and 5D Classic bodies and a variety of lenses.
How do I know if you're the right photographer for me?
I have a whole page about the experience of working with me specifically to answer this question! But to summarize: I hope you will love my work and trust me to create a beautiful + honest record of you.
What is your booking process?
My contract and payment portal are both online. I require a $1000 retainer and signed contract to reserve your date. Final balance is due 30 days before the wedding. That's it!
Can we meet you before booking?
For sure! I live in Lexington and am happy to sit down with you, or we can talk over the phone or video chat if you're not local.
How long does it take to receive our images?
6-8 weeks, often sooner. I will also post a few preview images to social media within a few days.
Do you travel for weddings?
Within 100 miles, definitely. Farther away, maybe. Honestly, now that I have a baby I would like to travel less, but I also like going on trips with my family, so please do inquire no matter where your wedding is located!
Will you help with styling or timeline for our wedding?
Most definitely. I know what photographs well, and I know *pretty much* everything about lighting, so I am a great resource for these things.
Do you photograph LGBTQ+ weddings?
Yes. I am LGBTQ+ myself. If you take issue with this, don't hire me :)
Do we get a print release? Can we share on social media?
Yes and yes. I offer prints and albums, but you have full rights to share and print my photos yourself, too.
