COVERING THE BASICS
I am based out of Jacksonville, FL. I consider St. Augustine and all the cities up to the northern border of Florida my "home-base".
Do I travel? Yes I sure do! I would absolutely love to discuss travel details for a custom quote. I am quite a jetsetter and travel somewhere at least once a month. I used to live in New York, Maryland, North Carolina, Georgia, and even Germany. I have immediate family members in Salt Lake City, Colorado, Washington DC, and Las Vegas. My husband and I had our honeymoon in the islands of Hawaii-- I would love to go to any of these places for your wedding or engagement.
That's a loaded question. Engagements start out at $700. For the wedding day, on average, clients spend anywhere between $4500-8500 to cover everything that is important to THEM from start to finish. Coverage for elopements are also available starting at $1200. That is a WIDE range, I know. That's why you need to contact me so I can learn more about your wedding celebration and what is needed to cover the important parts.
I also do have a special rate for small weddings and elopements that require minimal service.
We create custom packages for many clients. Your wedding photos will be the only thing you have left to remember your day, so we definitely recommend capturing the entire event, instead of just a couple of hours
Post-processing is the most time intensive part of your wedding as we work hard to ensure every image meets our artistic standard. Every photo has our custom look applied, and is adjusted for things like brightness and optimal color. I want you to be able to see the natural beauty in the images. I tweak the photos so that the whole gallery is consistent. I do my best to capture you in the best lighting, and I want your images to look modern and up to date as possible decades from today. To minimize the need for retouching and to keep the photos as natural as possible, I recommend hiring an experienced make up artist and hair stylist.
Albums are not included in our basic package. However, we can definitely add one for you after the day is over! Wedding Albums are an incredible keepsake to commemorate your day and have a hard copy of all the artwork.
I exclusively provide one of the largest albums available to feature your memories.

Absolutely! Please print out your photos. The thought of your photos sitting in a memory storage device in the corner of your desk drawer makes me sad. You know what makes me even more sad? Your wedding photos on social media getting lost in your timeline because it was so long ago. Print them out, show them off, and hang them around your house. You are welcome to make print orders directly from your online gallery or I would be happy to give you a list of places to print them out, if you are a do-it-yourself kind of bride. Technology changes so much. Prints are timeless.
I would describe my style as versatile, creative, classic, and timeless. Every wedding is so different. Colors and themes define the overall look of your gallery. I absolutely enjoy capturing light and airy pictures during daylight and sunset. However, I also love capturing dark and moody while the groom gets ready or after the sun has set. After all, lighting conditions change throughout the day. It will become dark in the evening. I believe a real experienced wedding photographer knows how to handle each day and night conditions, approach it with knowledge, and decide which method would be best to shoot.
My pricing options start out at $4500 with 8 hours of coverage and include me as your photographer, a photo assistant, timeline planning, and print rights to an edited, full resolution downloadable gallery. It is best for us to chat to know exactly how much you'll need. After all, every wedding is different.
I try my hardest to not make my clients wait. My husband and I invest in other professional photographers during special occassions, and it always feels like it takes FOREVER to get my pictures back. I know how exciting it can be. In your contract, I will allow myself up to 8 weeks to deliver your images (you know, because sometimes, life happens), but based on past events, I deliver the images between as little as 1-2 weeks.
I shoot with three professional grade Nikon cameras, 7 lenses, and a lot of flashes. If there's two of us at your wedding, multiply that by 2.
Clients generally book me 12-18 months out.
AMAZING! We can’t WAIT to get to know you and are so thrilled you’ve chosen us! To book we require a signed contract and $1000 retainer. Dates cannot be reserved until these have been received. Contact us today and we’ll send you full booking information!
I say yes! I love furr babies! Just make sure it is okay with the venue or location. Some places have restrictions.
First off, I think having an engagement session is a GREAT idea. You get to hang it all over your house, decorate it around the wedding, make a guest album, and see what it's like having professional photos taken if you've never had any taken before.
Some of my clients aren't able to use an engagement session if I bundle it in with weddings, because most of the weddings I do are destination weddings for my clients. For this reason, I keep the value separate and in an la carte system.
If you aren't able to do an engagement session, no worries! I give a ton of directions, I will tell you exactly what to do, and if there are any pain points, we can discuss it prior to the wedding.
(On a side note, would you do 20-30 hours of work for free? Yeah, me neither)
