Request Investment Guide

Destination weddings begin at $3500.

Wedding packages begin at $2999.

Your investment includes much more than beautiful images.  It includes timeline creation, wardrobe consultations, hours of hand editing your photos so they're perfect, and reminders throughout the wedding process to make sure you're on track.  The incredibly personal and meaningful images we create together are just a bonus!  I know photography pricing can sometimes be confusing but I believe in 100% transparency.  To see a more detailed explanation of pricing, request the Investment Guide and find out more.  All wedding photography packages include an additional photographer, digital files, and at least 8 hours of coverage.

Elopement Packages

Packages start at 4 hours and go up to full day coverage.  Plenty of time for details and tons of couple's photos.  If you will have more then 15 people in attendance, you'll need a custom quote.  Let's run away together!



I like to do this fairly soon after you book.  Prior to you setting an official start time for your wedding I like to meet to discuss exactly what it is you're wanting out of your experience.  We'll come up with a baseline and keep working on it until 3 months from your wedding day.

Yay! You've decided to book.  Now, we plan your engagement session and do a wardrobe consultation.



Now it's our chance to determine if we're a match.  We'll talk about you and your fiance, your wedding vision, and what you hope to get out of your wedding photography experience.  Consultations are typically done over the phone or in-person depending on my schedule.



I'll send you the full investment guide link and explain how it all works.



I can't wait to hear from you!  First I'll check to see if your date is available.  If it is, we'll move on to step 2.  If it's not, I'll give you some dates I am available or help direct you to a photographer I know and trust.  Peak wedding season is April - November so my weekends fill up fast.




It's the day we've all been waiting for!  By this time we'll have a detailed plan in place and all that's left to do is relax and enjoy!

ARE YOU Ready to book?

Your wedding photography balance will be broken up into 3 or 4 payments depending on what's easier for you.  So, let's say you book a year in advance, those payments will come due every 3-4 months over the year.  You don't have to pay the total amount at once, unless you'd like to.

04. Do you have a payment plan?

Of course!  If you rather use your complimentary session for bridals that's no problem.  Just let me know in advance since the planning for one of these sessions is different than an engagement session.

03. Can I do a bridal session instead of an engagement session?

In order to secure your wedding date you will need to sign a contract and submit your retainer.  The retainer is 25% of the overall package price (not including tax). The retainer can be paid online with a credit card or debit card or with a check if that's easier for you.

02. How do I secure my wedding date?

Peak wedding season in the South is March - June and September - November. So, if you're planning a wedding during this time it's best to inquire as soon as possible.  Typically these dates are already booked a year or more in advance.  If you're having a wedding outside of these months, there's a higher chance of availability for your date but contact us at least 9 months in advance to be sure.
