to your next adventure.

cheers

You're engaged, now what?

Hey, I know you’ve seen a hundred photographer sites at this point and its overwhelming. Let’s cut to the chase and let me tell you why I think we’d be a good match for each other.

You deserve a photographer you can trust and depend on (spoiler alert, that’s me) because everything is so uncertain. I get it, I’m planning a wedding during a pandemic too! I’m an empath; I feel all the feels and I want to make sure you feel yours too. I see moments before they’re fully unfolding. And that makes me a dang good photographer (*toot toot*, yeah I said it).




I want you to feel seen, understood, and supported.

Here to help you curate your experience based on what you want and value most. I'm all about abundance mindset here! I'm here to tell you that you can have everything you want. As an wedding and elopement photographer based in Oregon, I've photographed intimate elopements from the tops of mountains all the way down to the coast. Weddings surround by all the friends and family, and elopements with dogs as witnesses. You can be married on a mountain, in a vineyard, barefoot next to a bonfire on the beach, as long as you have each other - that's the love story I’m here for.

I get that you have questions. My job is to have answers.

The Investment

Schedule your free consult call or chat via email, whatever works best for your schedule! We get to know each other and figure out where you're at in the process with an overall vision for you day. 

We happy dance after making it official with a retainer ($1000), contract and a package specific to your needs. 

I send over either the Wedding or Elopement Welcome Guide (each 80+ pages of straight up gold specific to your type of celebration) and some questions to help me get to know you and your ideas even more. 

Planning progresses with me there every step of the way answering questions even before you have them. Custom timelines, location brainstorming, travel logistics, family portrait lists... don't worry, I've got it. 

You get married, it's magical. 





We keep things easy-peasy around here

The Process

I can’t even put into words how special Brogan is because 1) she’s just too amazing and 2) it would make me cry thinking of how she made our day so perfect. Brogan was in complete control and yet was so laid back and fun that it made our day amazing and the photos were even better than I could have imagined. I changed the plan up on her at least 20 times and she was so accommodating and helpful with every one. She picked out the most beautiful place for our ceremony, and I know she captured every beautiful moment perfectly. She feels like a part of my family! You would be crazy not to book her!

"I changed the plan up on her at least 20 times and she was so accommodating and helpful with every one."

Oregon, born and raised! I say "Portland area" to make it easy but really I live on the gorgeous Mt. Hood. I mainly work all over the West Coast and Hawaii, but am always down for anything.

Where are you located?

It varies based on each project and situation but I am an over-shooter and over-deliverer to a fault. You will have more than enough to choose from and enjoy!

How Many Images Are Included?

Nope! The editing process is part of my creativity and I shoot images with a certain "finished product" in mind. 

Do You Give Out Unedited Photos?

$1000 down to secure your date then the remaining balance is split into a custom payment plan. Most default to a monthly payment to help budget, but I set it up however works best for your situation. Remaining balance is due in full 30 days prior to the event. All payable electronically with any debit or credit card.

How Does Payment Work?

1. Fill out the contact form
2. I squeal with excitement and make sure I'm open for your date.
3. We pick a baseline coverage for your needs
4. $1000 retainer and contract mutually signed. 
5. We happy dance and celebrate making it official!

How Do I Book You?

I'd basically have to be hospitalized for that to happen. But in a worst case scenario, I reach out to the hefty network of photographers I'm friends with and trust whole-heartedly and find the perfect stand in. I then edit the photos in my signature style and handle the rest from there.

What Happens If You Can’t Be At Our Wedding?

If 2020 has taught us anything, it is that some things are out of our control. For the most part as long as we find a date that works mutually, I'm flexible with reschedules but a small fee may apply in certain situations (this will be outlined in detail in the contract. If you cancel completely or we can't find a reschedule date that works mutually, you forfeit your retainer.

What If We Cancel/Resched Our Date?

I am going into my 5th full-time year and I feel so freaking fortunate to get to do what I love every. single. day. These past 5 years have taught me so much and my experience only benefits you!

How Long Have You Been A Photographer?

Nope, I love you just the way you are. I'll fix a blemish here or a stray hair there, but I'm not going to change body shapes or lipstick colors or anything like that. You're going to look like you.

Will You Photoshop Us?

Then we dance in the rain! Living in the PNW, it is never a bad idea to have a backup plan. But also don't let it stress you out or start obsessing over the weather forecast a month out. We will make it work with what we're giving and it will be beautiful. I promise some of your favorite galleries and images you have seen on my page were taken on rainy days and you can't even tell. Other sessions we reschedule as needed. 

What Happens If The Weather Is Bad?

For Couples and Engagement Sessions, I send you all sorts of helpful planning and prep info leading up to it. Including blog posts and inspo links for outfits that work best for your vibe.

What Do We Wear To Our Session?

It is rare that I run a true "discount", but I am always open to discussion to find the perfect coverage for your budget. Never be afraid to reach out. 

Do You Offer Discounts?

Preview galleries within 7 days, full galleries within 12 weeks. I do offer expedited editing as an option to add on to any coverage which gets you your full gallery within 4 weeks!

What Is Your Turnaround?

If there are travel fees associated with any project, they will already be included in the proposal and coverage options I send you. Easy peasy. 

How do Travel Expenses Work?

I spend more time with that than I do actually pushing camera buttons! From the second you reach out until after your day, I AM HERE TO HELP. Timelines, location scouting, permit questions, family list guidance, family rants, I got you boo.

Do You Help In The Planning Process?

I will capture families on rare occasions, typically for past couples and clients I've already worked with. I do not photograph seniors as they are a whole different art and there are so many people who excel at it!

Do You Photograph Families, Seniors, Etc.?

Besides being a recluse? Kidding.
I mask, I don't go to non-work gatherings, and I am already fully vaccinated for COVID-19.
Sanitizer in my bags and car, my gear is wiped down after every event, and I won't great you with a hug (for now).

What covid precautions do you take?

I'll be sad if you don't! Even if they're only in a few photos or you bring a friend to wrangle them so y'all don't stress, I'm 1000% Team Doggo. I have three myself so I know all of the tricks to win them over. 

can i bring my dogs to our session?
