Wedding Photography

Your wedding, like your relationship, is one of a kind.

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.

Your Real Life Love Story

Your wedding is about both of you, getting married. You’ll be surrounded by the people who are important to you.  You want to be having one of your best days ever.  Memories of the experiences you share together on the wedding day, the beautiful details you took the time and effort to include, all the things about your relationship that make it special are what I want to give you in photos.  You deserve a visual reminder to hold close and live on after your day is done.

Photography is my career.  I put my whole heart into working with you to capture and preserve memories from your wedding day that will bring you joy each time you look back at them.

 

Congratulations On Your Engagement, Let's Plan Your Wedding Photography

Wedding Packages

Wedding Packages start at 1250 for Elopements.

Most couples invest between 1800-2800 on their full day wedding.

 All packages come with an online guest gallery and release to print your files. Unlimited consultations and your 1 month final planning dinner are also included.

Some packages include upgrades like Albums, prints, & engagement session.  For budget conscious couples I am happy to design a custom package that fits with your wedding plans.

Q&A

Simply let me know you’re ready to book & pay your 20% retainer.

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.

I have a story telling style.  I prefer to capture real life moments.  For portraits I want to create natural emotions by helping you interact together as a couple while I pose you.  I capturing your guests enjoying the day, the little moments that tend to happen very fast, and the beautiful details that are part of your day.

If you’re looking for a technical term to describe my style, my photography fits best in the lifestyle, documentary and photojournalism categories.

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.  If you are a Veteran, or getting married between January-April, let me know when you contact me.
