" take a photograph is to participate in another person's mortality, vulnerability, mutability. precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time's relentless melt."

- Susan Sontag

Beyond the Beautiful Images


I cherish the unique qualities of film photography, which beautifully portrays light, vibrant colors, and soft, dreamy skin tones like no other medium. Picture your wedding day surrounded by your favorite people, with a dream team of creatives, allowing you to savor every moment while we take care of the rest.


My approach to wedding photography involves capturing authentic moments as they unfold, elegantly styling the details to narrate the story of your day, and guiding you through natural, effortless poses. Your wedding deserves to be photographed with meticulous attention to detail and emotional depth. Creating a unique and memorable experience for my wonderful clients is my top priority.

discover our work


when you look back at your wedding images, it should make you feel as if you've gone back in time...


Once you complete my contact form, we’ll schedule a time to chat and get acquainted. During our conversation, we’ll discuss your wedding details, your relationship, and any questions you might have. This time allows us to ensure we're a good fit for each other. Most consultations last about 60 minutes.

1. Initial inquiry & consultation

2. Making it official

After our consultation, I'll send you your personalized proposal along with a contract and an invoice for the 50% retainer. Once the contract is signed and the retainer is paid, your wedding date will be officially on my calendar!

3. Wedding Prep

Prior to your wedding day, we'll schedule your engagement shoot to deepen our connection and get to know each other better. I'll provide suggestions for locations, along with sample photos to illustrate what you can anticipate. Additionally, you have the option to include a bridal session for additional photographs of you in your wedding gown.

4. Wedding Weekend

Throughout your day, I'll be there to guide you, ensuring we capture every significant moment and the precious in-between exchanges. My approach is a blend of gentle direction and unobtrusive observation, allowing for authentic candid shots to unfold naturally. All of my packages include two professional photographers to ensure comprehensive coverage of your special day. Additionally, you have the option to add rehearsal dinner coverage to document your entire wedding weekend from beginning to end.

5. After It Ends

Within two days, you'll receive a sneak peek of your wedding. Each image in your personalized gallery is meticulously hand-edited by me. You also have the option to include personalized keepsake wedding albums, preserving your memories for a lifetime. Your complete, hand-edited wedding day gallery will be delivered within 8-10 weeks after your wedding day, accessible through an online gallery.

To book or see if your date is available, fill out the inquiry form on the contact page of my website and I'll be in touch within 48 hours to schedule your initial consultation.


I am always itching to get out into the world and explore new places - capturing your memories while doing this is certainly an added bonus. Whether you're planning an elaborate engagement session at the Salt Flats in Utah or a beautiful destination wedding down in Mexico, I am available to travel to wherever you call me to document your life's most treasured moments. 

*please note: all travel taking place outside of Texas will incur additional fees

My answer is yes, both. Throughout my time as a photographer, I have fallen more and more in love with the nostalgic, romantic feel of film photography. Digital is fantastic, but nothing can beat the true tones that film brings to the table. I haven't been shooting film for long, but booking with me ensures you will receive a combination of both in your galleries. 

I love being both interactive and discrete throughout the wedding day. There will be parts of the wedding day when I will need to be in control in order to accomplish everything that needs to be done in order to keep everyone on schedule. There will also be moments when you shouldn’t even know that I’m present (i.e., the ceremony, during dances and toasts, etc.). During the engagement session, I teach my couples how to pose and encourage them interact so they are naturals on the wedding day and don’t need quite as much instruction from me!

A second shooter is an additional photographer that I personally hire as a backup for your wedding day. Every package of mine includes a second shooter in the event of an emergency. They’re also super helpful if I need to be in two places at once (i.e. the groom's suite and the bridal suite, etc.). Having a second shooter with me on your wedding day will ensure that you’re entirely covered and will help the timeline run smoothly.

A bridal session is an additional session where I take pictures of you in your wedding dress with your completed wedding day look - hair, makeup, shoes, veil, dress, and bouquet! Bridals are a southern tradition and they are SO worth the investment. Adding a bridal session to your package ensures that you will receive an entire gallery full of at least 70-100 images of you in your gown. In addition, they give you an opportunity to see how things will look and feel on the day of your wedding!  

All of your high resolution digital images will be delivered in an online gallery where you can download your images, order prints, and share with family and friends.

Complete wedding galleries usually take me anywhere from 8-10 weeks to edit and deliver depending on the season that I am in. Portrait gallery turnaround time is typically around 2-3 weeks.

Absolutely, yes! You can add items to your package at any point up until two weeks before your wedding. I’ll just need to draft up a new contract and invoice that includes the desired additions. Once these are signed and paid, we are good to go! 

Whoo Hoo! Head over to the contact page on my website and fill out the inquiry form there. Tell me as many details as you possibly can about your day. I will be in touch with you within 48 hours of your inquiry regarding availability and packages. To secure your date with me, a signed contract and a non-refundable retainer fee is required - then the fun starts!

please note: no date is reserved without a signed contract and the non-refundable retainer fee
