I make my couples comfortable & relaxed so that your photos look and feel like you. Whether it's your wedding day or engagement session you will have fun. Your wedding day is about having an amazing time getting ready with your people, having a romantic ceremony, getting those family formals that will make generations cry, portraits that you'll get lost in, and a reception to party and let loose at. I capture it all. You just sit back relax and and I'll record your memories so that you can replay your day over and over again.
Yup. I share the galleries my couples received. You should see how I can capture from start to finish. Anyone can put their best photos on their website but you need to see the whole day to trust they are capable of serving you fully. Want to see more? Just ask.
Once you book, you get access to my welcome guide with DJ's, Hair and make-up artists, caterers, florists, and more that I have worked with and trust. My couples most common problem is finding a fun DJ, I know some awesome ones!
No one likes being ignored or worse, being ghosted. Whether I am available for you day or not, you will get a response from me. Planning is stressful and time sensitive and I value the time you took to reach out to me and want you to feel heard and important.

I'm based in my hometown of Dayton, Ohio. I serve Cincinnati & Columbus locally without travel fees.
Yes! As well as serve my local area, I travel to photograph weddings and elopements.
You can click here if you are having a wedding outside of the Cincinnati, Columbus, & Dayton area.
You get your wedding day gallery previews within 24 hours! I deliver your full wedding gallery
within 4 weeks! YUP. I don't want to you wait!
Each date is secure and taken off of my calendar officially with a signed agreement and paid non-refundable date retainer. I get 4-11 wedding inquires for most wedding dates, sometimes at the same time.
Yes and no!
It will always be just me, unless you book a second photographer to assist and photograph the day of!
All wedding galleries are delivered via a private online photo gallery. You can share, download, and print straight from your gallery. You can share the link to your family and friends, as well as social media.
No! You wouldn't buy a nice meal and want it coming out uncooked. My editing makes up half of my style. I promise to not leave anything out. The photos I don't deliver are mid-blinking, unflattering, and duplicates. Everything else gets hand edited and makes the final cut in your gallery!
Don't fear! Whether your wedding is local or destination, I come prepared!
Local: I always show up early the day of the wedding to scout. The lighting/weather will vary from season to season so I find this way being the most accurate. I make sure to find the best place for family formals, wedding portraits, first look if applicable, and wedding party photos.
Destination: For within the US, I show up one full day in advance to scout locations for off site portraits as well as show up early the day of to do the above. (see local) International weddings, I show up 2-3 days early and do the same above!
Oh I go you booooo! Once you book with me, I will send over my what to wear guide, to help you with any and all questions you may have!
I am currently booking 2020 & 2021. Popular dates get snagged quickly and the rest are booked 10-18 months in advanced so do not hesitate to reach out to me! I am currently booked up for 2019, 80% booked up for 2020, and a handful for 2021!
Every wedding is booked digitally. You can use a credit/card or bank transfer to pay securely.
A paid non-refundable date retainer and a signed agreement to secure and book your date. The rest is due two weeks before your wedding day.
You can also do monthly or quarterly auto-payment as well to have smaller payments. Just mention before you book!
This is a common AND valid question. For this to happen I would have to have an family emergency/death or in the hospital. This has NEVER happened, but if for any reason it does, I will have someone I trust fully and who's work you love, take my place. I will still edit your photos.
