My Approach

My INFJ personality perfectly blends being a fly on the wall and knowing when to gently step in to direct photos. I’d much rather you have photos of how it felt — more of the people, less of the stuff.

How many images will we receive?

You can expect approximately 600-800 professionally edited wedding images.

Do you always have a second shooter?

I used to love photographing intimate weddings alone but it’s become too big of a risk to find someone good last minute. For that reason I do *highly recommend* you have a second shooter. I hire professionals to shoot with me that I fully trust in the event of a sudden emergency that prevents me from being there. It’s never happened in 9 years but it’s a chance I don’t recommend taking.

What is your favorite part of a wedding day?

The joy and commotion immediately after the couple is married and their family and friends rush up to hug them. Let’s wait at least 10 minutes before starting family photos after the ceremony ends so you can experience this moment without feeling like you’re on a forced schedule.

What would you like to change about weddings today?

Spend less time getting ready or fussing over a large wedding party and spend more time with your parents, family, and friends during the actual wedding. And lastly, just once I want to show up when the guests do and document the day as they experienced it, with no forced involvement from me. That would be a dream!

Do you travel?

I am a Midwest Wedding Photographer based in Saint Louis, Missouri and travel to where my couples are — NYC, KCMO, CA, you name it. A small travel fee might apply to cover my travel expenses. And I make up for it with extra coverage on your wedding day.

What are the next steps to book you?

Inquire now. In an effort to be intentional with my time / energy while in this season of parenting, I book only a limited number of weddings a year. For this reason I book on a first come, first serve basis. Until both the signed contract and retainer are received, I do continue accepting inquiries for your date. Once both are received, I am all yours.
