Your Life Through My Lens
Real life is the most beautiful thing I can photograph.
The looks you give each other that say “I love you”, the way you hold each other when you dance, the way you were really trying not to cry for joy but did. These are the things life is made of. They are moments that can’t be duplicated, and deserve to be remembered.
The average couple invests 1800-2800 on their wedding package. A retainer of 20% holds your date on my calendar.
Always Included: An online gallery, USB, release to print, complimentary pre-wedding shoot.
Upgrades: Packages include upgrades like Albums, wall art, and extra photo shoots.
Elopements: I have a special package for elopements. For any small wedding I am happy to work with you by creating a custom package that fits with your wedding.
Wedding Photography Style
Couples who work with me describe my style as a mix of modern, documentary and lifestyle photography, with attention to your personal details.
I make sure we have time to collaborate together, tour your venue, get to know each other and are on the same page the day of your wedding. I value building relationships with the couples I serve.
Photography is my career. I put my whole heart into working with you to capture your wedding day. I want your experience to be stress free, and fun.
Send Me A Message
As soon as you know you are ready! Most of my couples contact me 6-18 months before their wedding. If your wedding is taking place sooner and I’m available I will gladly book you.
Simply let me know you’re ready to book! A retainer of 20% books your date on my calendar.
I have a story telling style. I enjoy photographing real life moments, which is why I love weddings so much!
For wedding portraits I want to create natural emotions by helping you interact together as a couple while I pose you. I want you to remember how you felt on your wedding day. I also enjoy capturing your guests having fun with you, the details you worked so hard on, and the little moments that tend to happen very fast.
I have sample timelines we can go over when you contact me. We will work together while planning your photography to create a personal timeline that fits your wedding day. I ask lots of questions and will schedule a final planning meeting 1 month before your wedding.
My average turn around time for your digital files is 8 weeks. I edit as efficiently as possible so you’re not waiting too long. I look at each individual picture and do hand edits, which takes time.
My goal is to create a collection of photographs that tell the entire story of your wedding day. I don’t aim for a certain number of photographs. With two photographers I average 40-50 pictures per hour of photography.
Yes! Travel within the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, Stillwater, Mankato and St. Cloud areas is included with every wedding. If you need me to travel farther we will make a travel plan together that works with your wedding schedule. I’m happy to take a trip to the North Shore, or come along on your adventure anywhere in the United States.
I leave that decision up to you because it’s a very personal one.
I can guide you on how having a first look will determine your photography timeline for the day. I want you to make the decision on a first look that feels right for you. I am able to create a photography plan with or without a first look.
Contact me asap if you’re in this situation. I take last minute bookings in Minnesota up to 2 weeks in advance if I have your wedding weekend open.
Yes. Let me know your wedding date when you contact me, and let me know if you or your partner is a veteran.
