Who's your dream couple?

If you like pretty pictures and know how to throw a great party, I'm your gal.

 

I love a couple who isn't afraid to celebrate who they are. People who ditch the meaningless traditions and trade them for ones that actually matter: traditions that are passed down from family or they've made them up as a couple. My couples treat their friends like family and are friends with their family. I love when my couples go all out for the things that are important to them. Couples who treat their guests to an unforgettable party. Couples who are real...who are head-over-heels in love...who aren't afraid to ugly cry...who will climb "one more rock" to get to that epic scenery all while wearing their fabulous attire.

 

Also, brownie points if you smash the cake as you feed each other...(I'll just be whisper-chanting in the corner, "smash it, smash it!") AFTER your sunset portraits, of course!

 

Sound like you? Let's get connected!

 

What's your "style"?

I love all things pretty. Especially scenic views. I'd describe my images as fine-art with a twist. My work has a hint of editorial with a focus on capturing the connection between my couples and the fun they had on their wedding day. When you look at your photos, I want you to remember the excitement as you got ready, the cheers at your first kiss, the calm of your sunset portraits...and the wildness of a great party!

 

Can we meet you?

Absolutely! If you're not local to San Luis Obispo County, we'll schedule a video chat to get to know you as a couple. If you are local, I'd love to treat you to coffee at Scout 2 (or something a little fancier at your favorite brewery or winery). I'd love to hear all about your story, your wedding details, and anything else you want to talk about!

 

Do you travel?

YES!! Within the US, I've photographed in Oregon, Nevada, & Texas. Within California, I pretty much spend my time driving up and down the state ;)

 

CALIFORNIA // Travel to your wedding location has already been factored in. You have enough going on, the last thing you need is to worry about is our travel arrangements.

 

OUT OF STATE & INTERNATIONAL // I've had the pleasure of photographing international weddings in Australia, England, and Canada. Our world is full of amazing locations. Getting married at one of them? Let’s talk! My bags are packed and my passport is up to date.

 

We're ready! How do we book?

First, I’ll build a personalized timeline and quote to match your requested services. Your timeline will change over the course of your engagement, but I like to create it early so that you can have a baseline moving forward with your planning. Once your package and timeline is approved, I’ll send you a digital contract to sign. After you've signed your contract and retainer has been received, your date is officially booked! YAY!

 

How long have you been doing this?

2019 will be my TENTH wedding season – gasp! Time flies! I started photographing weddings in 2009 after graduating from Cal Poly SLO and fell in love with the industry. I bought a bajillion wedding magazines and studied everything I could. I owe everything to my first couple who took a chance on a newbie and gave me my start.

 

How long is an engagement session?

I usually schedule 2 hours before sunset. My engagement guide is full of tips on what to wear and what to bring. Send me a message so I can email it to you!

 

Do you offer albums?

Sure do! Please contact me for my album guide.

 

Whats the average turn around time for images?

Engagement photos can be expected in about 2 weeks and wedding photos can be expected in roughly 4-6 weeks after the wedding. Images may take longer if a second photographer was included in your package. If purchased, your usb drive should arrive about 1 week after your images are released onto your gallery.

 

How do you choose a second photographer?

I choose a shooter based on who would be the best fit for your wedding. I have had the opportunity to meet some wonderful photographers in the industry. I have some regulars that I absolutely LOVE working with who are consistent with my style. They are professional wedding photographers as well who are simply not booked on your date. I also shoot for them when I don’t have weddings booked.

 

Do you offer coordination services?

Yup!! But under a new brand, Bundle + Bash! Kaylyn recently rebranded and you can find all her planning and coordination adventures there. We're still sister-companies (ha! get it?)(she's my sister-in-law in case you didn't get it...) and we love working together. Be sure to check her out, she's awesome at what she does and super fun to be around!

FAQs

Who’s your dream couple?

If you like pretty pictures and know how to throw a great party, you’re my people.

I love a couple who isn’t afraid to celebrate who they are. People who ditch the meaningless traditions and trade them for ones that actually matter: traditions that are passed down from family or have been made up by couple. My couples treat their friends like family and are friends with their family. I love when my couples go all out for the things that are important to them. Couples who treat their guests to an unforgettable party. Couples who are real…who are head-over-heels in love…who aren’t afraid to ugly cry…who will climb “one more rock” to get to that epic scenery…all while wearing their fabulous attire.

Also, brownie points if you smash your cake into each other’s faces. I’ll just be whisper-chanting in the corner, “Smash it! Smash it!” AFTER your sunset portraits of course!
