Welcome

GET TO KNOW THE PHOTOGRAPHER

I am so excited you are interested in choosing me to document your wedding! I believe that choosing a wedding photographer is about more than just hiring someone with a camera to document your day. Your wedding photographer should be someone who makes you feel comfortable, someone who eases the craziness of a wedding day, and someone who eventually becomes a friend. 

I am a professionally taught fine art wedding and engagement photographer based in Northern Colorado. I love natural light and believe that proper lighting is the power behind good photographs. I strive to create beautiful images that are classic, true to color, and will share your love story for years to come. 

My husband, Taylor, and I were married in March of 2019, so I understand the stage of life you’re in, and I’m happy to help however I can! We currently live in Fort Collins with our sweet pup, Ruby, and a baby on the way. When Taylor and I are not photographing weddings, we love working on our house, cooking, reading, and spending time in the mountains. I am so thankful for the career that I have, and I love getting to know each and every couple I have the opportunity to work with!

The Process

FROM the first conversation to delivering your images

After attending more than a hundred weddings over the past few years, I’ve found that I’m not the perfect fit for every couple. That’s why this process begins with a conversation. I want to hear everything–how you met, funny first date stories, and how you got engaged. We’ll get to know one another, talk about the details of your day, answer any questions you may have about working with me, and figure out if we’re the best fit for each other. 

If we are a great fit, the next step is to reserve your date with a signed contract and a $1,000 non-refundable deposit. From there, we’ll begin planning your engagement session if your collection includes one. There might be a few months between your session and your wedding, but I am always around to answer questions throughout the planning process (I know it’s a lot to think about!) 

About two months before your big day, I’ll check in again with a pre-wedding questionnaire to help finalize your timeline, create your ideal shot list with you, and to make sure I am fully prepared to photograph your most important moments. Your wedding will be beautiful, and you won’t have to worry about photography on the big day. We’ll do all the prep work beforehand, and you can trust me to get the shot.

After the wedding, I will edit all of your images, and within 4 weeks, meet up with you in person for a grand photo reveal, complete with wine and cookies! If an heirloom album is part of your collection we will also use this time to design it together. You will leave your photo reveal session with all of your high-resolution digital negatives in online gallery that you can share with family and friends, as well as download and keep forever.

Engagement Sessions

Unless you’re a model, being photographed probably feels a little awkward. I do this for a living, and I still always feel a little out of place when I’m in front of a camera, rather than behind it. 

I’m a big fan of engagement sessions for a couple reasons. First, they allow you to get comfortable in front of the camera. It takes time for most couples to warm up to being photographed and understand my style. Timelines can be pretty tight on wedding days, and 30 minutes may be all we have for portraits – which is why I’ve found that wedding day portraits turn out so much better when couples also do engagement sessions ahead of time. 

Second, they give you a chance to celebrate how you got to where you are as a couple by showing off your personalities in a more casual setting that is significant to the two of you–and can even include pets! Don’t worry, I’m here to help along with my detailed Engagement Guide. While engagement photos are great for save-the-dates, I’ve taken engagement photos anywhere from 18 months in advance to a few days before the wedding. 

Heirloom Albums

One of the best ways to ensure your wedding memories last a lifetime and longer is by creating an heirloom album to share with future generations. 

These aren’t the same albums your parents’ wedding photos came in. They are high quality, professionally designed, and come in a variety of linen, leather, and velvet covers. Plus, they’re modern, lay perfectly flat, and will look incredible on your coffee table.

Frequently Asked Questions

We love your work, and we're ready to book! What's the next step?
Fantastic! To reserve your wedding date, I'll need a completed contract and a $1,000 non-refundable deposit. If you do not have a contract yet, just let me know, and I'll send one over! Of the remaining balance, 50% will be due six months before your wedding, and the remaining 50% will be due one month before your wedding.
How many photos can we expect from our wedding day?
Galleries typically include anywhere between 400 and 800 photos. The exact amount varies from wedding to wedding. Your online gallery will come loaded with fully edited high resolution digital negatives for you to download, print and share.
How long will our online gallery be live?
Your wedding gallery will be shareable and live for 90 days. Be sure to download and back up your images as soon as your gallery goes live. After 90 days, your gallery will be archived and can be revisited by request. You may order prints, frames, and albums anytime before or after your wedding.
When do you charge travel fees?
I typically add travel fees onto any weddings outside of Fort Collins, Longmont, Boulder, Denver, and Vail areas. Fees vary depending on location, and I love to travel so ask for more details!
