I truly believe that wedding photography is an investment in your future. After the flowers have wilted, the cake has been eaten, and the guests have left, the only tangible thing that remains are your pictures, reminding you of the fleeting moments of the best day of your life. Your wedding pictures should be an heirloom and your love story, a legacy, that you pass on to future generations.
Wedding collections start at $2,600 and always include a complimentary engagement session,
two photographers, and a private online gallery with your carefully curated collection of images.
Because every wedding is different in its own beautiful way, I offer a variety of collections along with customizable coverage to perfectly fit your day. To ensure that every couple receives the most memorable and personalized experience, I accept a limited number of weddings per year. Wedding dates are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis and typically start to book one year in advance.
Have a question? Let me help!
Where do you live?
I am proud to call Madison, Wisconsin my home!
Do you travel for weddings?
You bet! I understand that not everyone loves happy cows, beer, and cold winters so worldwide travel is available. All of my wedding collections include in-state travel. For travel outside Wisconsin, please contact me for more information.
How will I receive my pictures?
For your engagement and wedding pictures, you will receive your collection of images via a private online gallery. You can see an example here. From the gallery, you can download all of your images directly to your computer. It's that easy!
How many images will I receive from my wedding?
I typically deliver 400-600 images for a full day of wedding coverage. You can generally expect about 50 images per hour of shooting.
How quickly will I receive my images?
While I try to edit your images as timely as possible, I take great pride in editing each and every image. For an engagement session, I typically deliver your images within 3 weeks. For weddings, I typically deliver your images within 6-8 weeks.
Do I have to order prints through you?
I highly recommend ordering prints through my preferred lab, but it's not required. All of my collections include a print release so you can print and share at your heart's content! I will say that the difference in quality is HUGE when it comes to ordering through a local printer and a professional lab so I encourage clients to let me help with prints.
Do you offer albums?
While I am a big fan of the beauty of the tangible, I do not offer albums at this time. However, I highly recommend Artifact Uprising for your album needs. Their layflat and hardcover albums offer amazing quality and design from cover to cover!
Do I really need an engagement session?
I believe that an engagement session is such a special and important time for couples to get comfortable not only in front of the camera, but also with me as your photographer. Most couples have never been photographed professionally so an engagement session offers the perfect opportunity for you to practice being in front of the camera before the big day arrives. It also allows me to tune into how you are as a couple - your individual personalities, your interactions with each other, your little quirks. Engagement pictures are also great to use for your Save the Dates, as well as wedding decor. Because engagement sessions are complimentary to every wedding collection, turning down this opportunity will not decrease your total cost.
Do you work with a second photographer?
Yes! I am lucky enough to work alongside my oh-so-handsome husband, Bryan. We work together on every wedding. I feel that it's important to have two photographers present on your wedding day to help capture all of the fleeting moments and details of the day.
What is a First Look?
A first look is an opportunity for the bride and groom to see each other before the ceremony in private, allowing only the photographer to be present during this special, candid moment. I have to say that this is one of my favorite moments of the day. It is so raw, so authentic. You are able to be 100% present and genuine without having 100+ people stare at you. It also allows you to take most, if not all, of your pictures before the ceremony so you can actually enjoy the cocktail hour with your guests. You want to get to YOUR party, right??
We have some questions about the timeline of the day. Can you help with that?
Definitely! As a photographer, I am typically one of only vendors that is there with you throughout your entire wedding day from start to finish. I also know good light! I really strive to work with couples to help create an ideal timeline that not only flows seamlessly from moment to moment, but also takes advantage of the best lighting situation for your pictures. My goal is to make you feel as relaxed and stress-free as possible so you can focus on living in the moment.
I really love your work and feel like we would be a good fit. How do I book you?
I'd LOVE to connect and meet up with you to talk more about your big day and ensure that we are the perfect fit. Once we are in agreement, I just need a signed contract and a $500 non-refundable retainer and we're all set!
