My clients (let's call them "my people") are non-traditional, creative types looking for their love to be documented in a way that's true to their story and still makes them smile when they're 40 years into this adventure called marriage.
Like I said, I love working with unconventional brides. I think it's because I like doing things a little different myself. So instead of going on talking about me, I'm going to give you my best advice for finding your perfect wedding photographer. Ready? Find someone you trust.
Find someone whose work makes your heart leap every time you refresh their website or Instagram feed (let's be real, we're all stalkers to some degree!). That means you trust their style.
Find someone who you'd be willing to sit precariously perched on the edge of a mountain for a single shot if they told you to. That means you trust their vision.
Find someone who's words you connect with online. That means you trust their voice and beliefs.
Find the person you want behind the camera at your wedding because at the end of it all, you'll have your spouse, the memories and those photos.
I'm so grateful to the couples who have entrusted me to capture their stories. If my work inspires you in some way, I'd love to chat!
If any of that resonates with you, the FAQ below may tickle your fancy.
I live in Grand Island, Nebraska.
Oh yeah! I'm based in Nebraska but am completely enamored with travel and find it very inspirational and influential in my work. You can find a list of my travel dates on my ABOUT ME PAGE.
I love being able to photograph adventurous couples and intimate weddings. I LOVE when a couple is down to explore and not afraid to get a little dirt on their clothes as we shoot.
I would say I take a creative journalistic approach to my photos. I will capture your wedding day exactly as it unfolds. I like to look for those little in-between moments that make the day so special. Have no fear, (in case your mom is asking!) we will still get those family photos!
If your heart desires a second photographer at your wedding, we can make that happen. I do photograph most of my weddings solo and feel completely comfortable doing so. However, sometime adding a photographer is a good route, especially for larger weddings. Get in touch and we can discuss details!
Don't fret! I'm here to guide you through all that and more. I provide an online space where you can store all your wedding photography details. I'll even give you my cell number so we can hash out any questions that may come up along the way. Just don't overuse it like this.
Engagements / Couples: typically 2-3 weeks
Weddings: typically 6-8 weeks
You can't rush a good thing.
From an engagement session around 200 images. For weddings with one photographer, about 6-700. Weddings with two photographers around 7-800. Ballpark.
For both engagement sessions and weddings, you will receive a link to an online gallery with all of your images. From there you can download files, purchase prints or share on social media. For weddings, you will also receive a flash drive with all your edited, high-resolution images. They are yours to do with what you please. Engagement sessions do NOT come with a flash drive but you will have the ability to download all the images to your computer from your online gallery.
Chocolate on chocolate. Thank you for asking!
I don't do hourly packages. It's not fair to you or me. I'll be there for the full mascara spectrum: from the moment you apply it to the moment it runs when you cry during his vows to the moment it smudges on the dance floor. When you contact me, I will send over a detailed guide that lays out what my full day coverage offers.
I know this is probably one of the (quite possibly the) biggest questions you have on your mind right now. If you're looking for someone to show up for part of the day and click a few photos, that's not my thing. If you're searching for the cheapest deal, I'm not your gal.
If you've felt your heart beat a litter faster after taking a look at my work, fill out a contact form HERE and I will drop a pricing page right into your inbox. It spells out all the bang I give in return for your buck as well as more juicy details.
Weddings: On average, couples spend about 2900
Couples sessions start at 500
