my philosophy

I love those UNSCRIPTED, little moments in between.

With all of my sessions and weddings, I focus on using prompts rather than posing to capture genuine reactions and emotions. There is never any standing and smiling awkwardly at the camera, or not knowing what to do with your hands. I always make sure my couples are feeling natural and comfortable throughout the process. Eventually, you'll forget that you're in front of the camera and I promise it will be fun! If you can leave your expectations at the door and trust the process, that's when the magic happens!


Sessions start at $600

Turnaround times are approximately 4-6 weeks for weddings and 2 weeks for sessions. For weddings, I estimate about 75-100 images per hour of coverage. If you have booked a session, there is a specific number of images you will receive based on the collection you choose. 

After your retainer is paid, your final balance will be due two weeks prior to your wedding or session date. Custom payment plans can be set up upon request for your convenience.

My wedding clientele is focused on the Carolinas. However, I take on up to 4 destination weddings and elopements per year.  I cap my destination weddings to allow my full attention to all of my clients each year.

Once you decide you want to hire me as your photographer, you will need to sign a contract and pay a non-refundable retainer. At the signing of your contract, you will receive an invoice for your 20% retainer. This retainer is applied towards your total balance. Your date is not officially reserved on my calendar until the contract is signed and your retainer is paid. 


All of my wedding collections include timeline planning assistance. While I really appreciate my couples using a wedding planner or day-of coordinator, I can offer a lot of insight into how to effectively plan out your day to be able to get all of the photo-ops that are important to you while still being able to relax and enjoy your day. We will schedule this planning session about a month out from your wedding date

Weddings taking place outside of Southeastern North Carolina may be subject to travel fees. Inquire for specifics.

Most people are not accustomed to being in front a camera. I use candid prompts to keep you moving freely and naturally to get the most authentic reactions and emotions. I'll follow your lead when I see what makes you most comfortable!

I sure do! Once you have your wedding booked with me, I can send you a list of my preferred vendors. If you choose not to book any of my preferred vendors, thats okay too - I LOVE meeting and working with new vendors!
