QUESTIONS

WHAT MAKES YOU & YOUR STYLE UNIQUE?
I photograph primarily with film, focusing on clean and bright imagery, luscious natural light, and organic moments. My most important priority is making you feel comfortable and relaxed, allowing the day be carefree, unposed, and naturally at its most gorgeous. I want to showcase you and your newly minted spouse, your loved ones, and your relationships at your most beautiful. And while film is my passion, digital also has an important role in my work—it’s a perfect union of tradition and modernity to ensure all your moments are expressed at their best. Overall, my aesthetic is timeless but fresh, beautiful but simple, crisp and classic.

HOW DOES WORKING WITH YOU WORK?
My focus throughout it all is you: before we even decide to work together, we’ll meet for a complimentary consultation, either in person or over the phone. I want to hear your love story, and get to know you and your spouse-to-be! Once you decide we’re a perfect fit, we’ll continue to consult throughout your planning process so our timelines and priorities are perfectly organized and the details of your day flow flawlessly into the images I capture—it’s not just about simply showing up on the morning of your big day! I accept a limited number of wedding commissions per year to ensure I am able to take care of you. I’m almost as excited for your wedding day as you are!

TELL ME ABOUT YOUR WEDDING COLLECTIONS.
I offer a range of collections, all of which include my signature mix of film and digital coverage, a beautifully edited compilation of images with printing + web rights, and access to an online gallery. Many collections also include an engagement session and a fine art album, to truly encapsulate your day. Pricing starts at $4800, with most couples investing between $5500-$6500. Customization is available and encouraged—your wedding is unique, and your photography collection should be too. I would love to meet with you so I can help you determine the best options to fit your needs!

WHAT TYPES OF FINISHED PRODUCTS DO YOU OFFER?
I offer handcrafted, custom designed fine art albums, as well as canvases and archival prints, so you’re provided with the heirlooms that best suit your lifestyle. Of course, all services include a digital copy of your images—but I highly suggest a finished piece that doesn’t get shuffled into the back of your desk drawer: something you can gaze at on your living room wall, leaf through on a quiet night in, or share decades down the road.

YOU’RE BASED IN MINNEAPOLIS & NYC?
I am! My home and studio are in Minneapolis (Northeast to be exact!), but I also shoot frequently in NYC. I take clients in both cities and their surrounding areas (and well beyond, for that matter). No matter where your wedding will take place, rest assured you’ll be taken care of every step of the way.

WILL YOU TRAVEL?
Yes! I absolutely love to travel (both in and outside of work!), and I’d love to help you document your momentous event in an equally momentous place. You can see some of my destination and travel work here.

DO YOU OFFER SERVICES ASIDE FROM WEDDINGS?
Absolutely! I love photographing engagement sessions and this service is included with most of my wedding collections because it’s the perfect opportunity to build the trust and camaraderie that are crucial to a well-captured wedding and to begin documenting the defining details of a couple.

But you don’t have to be planning a wedding to indulge in a photo session with your beloved. I offer lifestyle sessions for all couples in love, starting at $600.

I also offer beauty & boudoir sessions. Visit my website to peruse my galleries or get in touch!

THIS SOUNDS PERFECT! WHAT’S NEXT?
Let’s talk! I want to learn more about you, hear all the gorgeous details of your wedding, and most importantly, ensure that your every need can be met. The most critical part of this process is finding the perfect photographer for you, one you truly trust to document one of the biggest events of your life. It’s imperative that you trust in my vision, artistry and technical knowledge, but also that we connect on a personal level.

After we talk, if you have that gloriously giddy feeling signaling that you’ve found The One, I’ll send you a link where you can book online. After receipt of retainer and a signed contract, your wedding day is officially reserved, and we’ll get started capturing your day the right way!

WHAT IF I HAVE ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS?
Get in touch and I’ll be happy to answer them—preferably in person, over a shared bottle of wine! I can’t wait to connect with you!
