you know, the photos that aren’t too overly posed (but oh so pretty!)
You want to feel relaxed and natural in front of the camera. You might be lighthearted and fun, but you for sure know you don't want cheesy photos (There is 100% a fine line, if you know you know). You also want to work with someone you like! (Who doesn't?!)
Here's the good news, I can help you get what you want!
The best way to have an amazing wedding experience is to make sure everyone is on the same page. So before anything is made official I always make sure to have a conversation with you.
I love hearing how you met, what your dreams are for your wedding, and what you are most excited about on your wedding day!
I also want to get to know you (and let you get to know me!) because I'm the vendor who is with you most of the day. (Which means we better like each other just a bit 😉)
This whole process let's us know if we'll be the right fit for eachother.
I'm here to help you know what to wear for your engagement session, throw out some vendor referrals, and help you make sure your timeline is photography friendly!
Even if you have a wedding planner I'm here to make sure the photography side is taken care of.
Being in this industry means I've learned a lot about weddings (and been to a lot of weddings) so I'm happy to share everything I know.
If you are eloping then I want to give any advice on locations, time of day, and timeline suggestions!
I believe engagement sessions are so important! Why? Because they are an amazing way to practice being in-front of the camera and it's the first time we get to work together!
Engagement sessions can done anytime before the wedding. Whether that's right after the proposal or right before the wedding is up to you!
I help you plan the session based on the "look" you are after. That could be a preppy city session, a causal country look, or a cozy home session. The possibilities are endless!
Before your wedding we'll start talking wedding day timeline, family formal groups, and any other wedding details you want me to know.
Details can be discussed at any point in the planning process, just reach out and let me know!
Your big day is finally here! All you have to do is get married, we do all the work!
At this point all the details have been worked out and all that's left is to actually photograph your wedding!
Your photos will be delivered three weeks after your wedding via an online gallery.
If the collection you've chosen comes with an album that will be delivered as well. If you have not chosen to create an album, we can send information on how to get that process started.

TO CELEBRATE YOU BECOMING AN AJP BRIDE, IF YOU BOOK WITHIN 14 DAYS YOU WILL RECEIVE A FREE 1 HOUR ENGAGEMENT SESSION WITH AN ONLINE GALLERY AND PRINT RELEASE!
Yes! 25% of the total cost is due as a retainer, and the rest can be scheduled almost however you like as long as it’s paid one month before the wedding. I do a default of 4 payments spread out between booking time and wedding time.
I choose from a group of people I’ve worked with in the past!
I usually deliver between 800 - 1500+ photos. The range is due to the length of the wedding, amount of location changes (more driving = less shooting), the timeline, and more. But on a whole 8-hour traditional wedding day about 1000)
Yes! I have a small network of other wedding professionals who both work with me and have their own businesses. In the event I couldn't shoot, one of them would cover for me.
They would also have a backup photographer second shooting with them. I would still edit and deliver the gallery.
Yes with full day coverage! It can be swapped for a bridal
or day after session.
For hourly you can get one as an add on.
Through an online gallery delivery service called Pic-time! You’ll be able to download high-resolution photos, use the printing studio (if you like), and know that your wedding is double backed up to the cloud.
For weddings as long as the wedding is within 2 hours of my home base then no. Otherwise I will charge for gas and possible a hotel. This is something we can discuss either over email or on a phone consultation! If it is a destination wedding I simply charge the cost of travel and meals.
No! I will do a walk through of your venue the day of (and before if it’s allowed/doable) but I almost always see the venue the day of the wedding. I will ask if there are any limitations in the planning questionnaire so I can plan accordingly.
No, sorry! Raw photos are pretty much useless unless you turn them into jpegs. So you would need that software first. And second I never give out raws.
You can do that in your final gallery! I have a shop set up that uses reliable USA-based printers. They’ll ship everything directly to you! I can help with album design or you can do it yourself!
You can also just print at your favorite printing place. I do recommend being careful where you choose when it comes to larger prints! If a third-party place has bad results there's not much I can do.
"She has such a comfortable, yet professional presence and did a great job making us feel relaxed. Our engagement photos and the photos from our wedding capture the spirit of both days so beautifully and (seemingly) effortlessly. Can't recommend working with her more, it was an absolute joy!”
As I close out, I just want to say thank you for considering me and for taking the time to inquire! I really hope you’ve enjoyed what you’ve seen so far. If you’re interested in taking the next step, we can either set up a quick call and I can help point you in the right direction coverage-wise (and you can vibe check me if you want!) or you can just email me and let me know what you think, any questions you have, and what collection you’d like.
Once we figure out what you’d like, I’ll send over the contract and booking information. It’ll have the entire price breakdown, payment timeline, and contract. 25% of the total cost will be due as a retainer in order to be fully booked. You can take your time to review it all and if it looks good you can sign it and we can get this party started! I’ll hold your date for you for 3 days while you think it over! I know this is a big decision and I’m happy that you’ve considered me to be the one to cover your wedding day!
