Being a photographer for over 4 years has definitely taught me my fair share of wedding planning. 

We specialize in boutique weddings, so our weddings are very unique in design! I truly cannot wait to get this process started with you. From the ring to your “I do,” we will be there right beside you!

The love for planning weddings really started to sprout when I would photograph a wedding and there would be no planner. Naturally I would fill in this position and take control over the entire day. It brought me so much joy to watch a day unfold perfectly because I had a hand in it. I have now since shot over 50 weddings and coordinated over half of them. When I first started wedding photography, I new that I wanted to run my business differently. I wanted couples to feel a sense of trust and friendship when they were working with me. I wanted my couples to feel that they could come to me about anything. Ever since that moment, where I made the decision to have friendships with my couples, I have had the pleasure of serving so many wonderful bride and grooms who have now, truly, become such good friends. It was not long ago that I felt something was missing from my business. It was planning the wedding itself. I felt that pull and rushed to it. Now, I am so happy to be able to serve my couples with not only photography, but with helping them plan the wedding itself. My team and I will ensure that your day runs as smoothly as possible. We will also make sure that the design of your wedding is unique and your own.
