We are proud to offer free unlimited coffee shop meetings, late night texts, facebook messages, and emails related to all things wedding. Not sure how to make your wedding the best it can be? We will help you put together the itinerary for the day, as well as everything leading up to it, to make sure everything goes smooth and stress free.


All weddings are unique.

We would love to hear about all of your hopes and dreams for your big day, so we can help you navigate all of the many options

we have to offer. Remember, we want this to be about 'more than just pictures'

We require a retainer fee of $500 at the time of booking in order to reserve your date. This does get applied to your balance, but is not refundable.

We are also happy to help with all of your printing needs. Whether it be a basic print, a canvas wrap, a framed and matted print, or albums, books, and magazines, let us work with the print lab for the best quality results.

intimate elopements starting at $1200

Kansas weddings starting at $1800

international travel starting at $3500

The option to add a second photographer for the day is available for an extra fee.

The last thing we want for you is to have to price shop and settle for something less than what you deserve. If you truly love our work, and think we would work well together, tell us, and let's talk about it.

All retouched images are delivered in an online gallery with high resolution downloading and a non commercial print release included. We make every effort to delivery your gallery within 5 weeks of your wedding day.

No job too big or too small.

There are so many milestones you'll cross that deserve to be documented and frozen in time.

From young to old, and everything in between. From the start of one chapter in your life to the beginning of the next one.

Babies, kids, families, friends, graduates, engagements, new homes, anniversaries, just for fun...

Let me know what you have in mind. I'll help with outfit advice and picking the best location. 

Most portrait sessions

one hour $300

two hours $500

I do request full payment at the time of booking to reserve your date and time.
