the process


01 inquire

It all begins with your first email. When you reach out, please let me with as much detail as you wish to share, as the more I know off the hop the better! I love long messages so please don't hold back.


We'll arrange a time in the evening to hop on a no pressure virtual call so that we can get to know one another, and you can share every exciting detail with me!


After our virtual call, you take the time you need to make your decision. When you reach out to let me know that you're ready to book I will prepare a contract online to send for you to review and sign, along with an invoice for your retainer fee to finalize and secure your date. Once your booking is complete I will send over my Wedding Guide PDF to help support your planning process, provide you with preferred vendors & hopefully give you some ideas to consider implementing into your day to make it all the more enjoyable.

04 engagement session

Now the fun really begins! I’m happy to be involved as much as you want me to be in determining the feel and location for your engagement photos. Helpful details, tips & location suggestions are provided for you in my Wedding Planning PDF. Your engagement session is a time when we’ll really get to know one another and for you to get comfortable being in front of my camera.

05 timeline support

1.5 months out from your wedding I will send you my wedding questionnaire, which I lovingly refer to as my go to guide on your wedding day. It helps me gather all of the details, and gives me a chance to address any concerns in regards to timeline etc. If you need support, we will hop on a phone call to go over the questionnaire once it is completed.

05 your big day!

THE DAY IS HERE and I am so excited to be celebrating with you both. Time to let me work my magic and trust that I have you well taken care of.

06 preserving your memories

After your wedding you’ll receive a sneak peek gallery before receiving your completed gallery. Once your full gallery is completed you have access to professional albums & prints. With technology ever changing, printing your memories is the best way to get them off of your hard drive and into your hands.
