It's true. All you need for an adventurous, laid back wedding day is a little lust for life and some childlike curiosity. Sure, it can be as classy as a 7 course MIchelin star meal, or just your favorite local brews, a bag of M&Ms and a heart shaped pizza.
Your wedding, your rules.
Caving to the pressure of hosting a massive wedding means spending a lot of money on a lot of people. If you "don't even like a lot of people", why throw them a party? (Sorry aunt Susan three times removed). The emotions you have on your wedding day will show in your photos. Stick to your guns and plan a wedding that brings out the best in you.
Let's recenter your wedding around you, your values, and the people and community closest to you. Whatever that looks like, I'm here for you, the real you.
I mean, it's not a competition, but okay, challenge accepted: I'm the awkwardest turtle on the log. Don't worry about it (I will through!). You're among friends here. You don't want all eyes on you. I don't either. It's fine. Come out of your shell and be yourself. I'm here to create an experience that's true to you, quirks included.
Your closest inner circle loves the things that make you, you. Do the thing. Sing offkey, and dance to your own beat! I believe those make the best moments anyways.
Since I know how nerve racking it can be to meet new people, I include engagement sessions in ALL of my packages. It's a fun way to break the ice and get to know each other before your wedding day!
I will also:
help you choose a location
help you navigate family stuff
be a supportive listener
send you tons of guides
hook you up with vendors you'll vibe with
make sure you feel at ease the entire way

My boudoir and self love sessions are powerful spaces for people to embrace vulnerability and let go of trauma. It's a place to release the judgment many of us have surrounding our bodies.
It's fun, empowering, sensual, creative, and about SO much more than "being sexy" - but yeah, you're that too!
Whether for your partner or just you, these sessions can be added to your wedding package at any time.
with love, xoxo me
Yes and YES!! Contact me for custom rates based on your destination.
I'm based out of Mount Joy, Pennsylvania. For weddings, I charge travel for destinations 100 miles or more from Mt Joy (17552). For all other sessions, I charge travel at 50 miles or more.
You can expect 75-100 images per hour of coverage.
Definitely! I'd be happy to send over a few examples of wedding day galleries. Fill out my contact form above. IN the meantime, you can also head on over to my blog to check out recent weddings.
Full wedding galleries take 8 weeks, and all other sessions take 2 weeks!
Absolutely! I understand that each couple's needs are unique. Fill out my contact form with what you're looking for, and then we can talk about how to customize one of my base packages.
All wedding galleries are delivered via an online gallery where you can view and download your photos, and even order prints. I also have add ons for USBs and wedding albums.
Of course! I've been doing this thing for years, and I know how to guide you with prompts that make your session feel more like a date with each other than having your photos taken! I swear it will be fun!
No big deal. To scope out the best photo spots, I always arrive a half hour early, or take a venue tour with you if our schedules allow.
Usually, yes! Most people who are just a little shy or skeptical at first are pleasantly surprised at how much fun it actually is! Unless they're downright uncooperative, it's never an issue.
No, I don't provide any raw files as they are an incomplete representation of my work. That said, when curating your final gallery, I don't withhold any usable images - aside from ones where you might be sneezing cross eyed ;)
