Photography for the          


Let's be completely honest here. Wedding planning can be stressful. But your photography experience

From the first time we chat until long after the confetti has settled, my ultimate goal is for you to rest easy knowing the memories you are about to create with the people you love more than life itself are in the BEST of hands. 

My approach is simple: I'll have your back throughout the entire experience. Those dreamy images you want? Done and done! But more than that I will build a genuine friendship with you, take your stress away, and make sure you're having FUN. 

Most of all I will allow you be truly present in each and every moment of your wedding day.

All you have to do is be ridiculously in love.
(That's Easy Like Sunday Morning.)

Big Hearted

Where timeless meets modern and easy-going meets chic
to capture all the moments you'll want to relive over and over again.

And             In Love

Everything Before You Say "I DO"

Yay!! One of you popped the question. The  other has a GORGEOUS ring. It's time to dream up those big big plans. Let's chat over coffee or a cocktail so I can get to know you.

Once we're officially official, getting you comfortable in front of the camera at your engagement photos is next. And throughout your planning I'll be there to create a seamless and easy breezy experience.

You two! It's HERE!!! Turn up the music and get your dancing shoes on because we're about to party! Your job is simply to live out your 

I’ll ensure not a moment is overlooked and will  be everywhere you need me. And most importantly, I will pour my heart into your day to give you images that will give you ALL THE FEELS over and over again. 

Just because your day is over, your experience isn't! From the sneak peak to the final delivery of your entire gallery, your images will allow you to relive your wedding day.

I'll get to work on your one-of-a-kind heirloom album because your photos deserve a better home than an instagram square. And as always, I still have a few tricks up my sleeve to keep the celebration going.

Engagement Session

Your time to shine

I do my hair toss, check my nails, baby how you feeling, feeling good as hell! Did someone say Lizzo, because that’s how you’re going to feel when your engagement session is over. You may be nervous about posing and knowing what to do, but I am here to tell you I’ve got you. It’s my job to make you feel comfortable and guide you throughout the entire process so that your images show off your genuine smiles and the best version of you. Your job is just to be ridiculously in love. Easy enough! Leave the rest to me, and soon you’ll have an entire gallery of gorgeous images that you’ll want to frame in your house to make you even more excited for your wedding day. The only thing you have to promise me is that you’ll make a date night of it afterwards. Because if your hair and makeup are done and you’re both dressed to kill, you deserve to celebrate together. 


Planning your day

Handled with the Utmost Care

The countdown is on! I’ll be there as your friend throughout the entire planning process. I’m just an email or phone call away with anything you need. Vendor Recommendations? Sounding board for ideas of how to make your wedding completely personal and a reflection of you? Help pointing your guests in the direction of the very best Charleston lunch spots the weekend of your wedding? Needing to vent about your rogue Aunt who thinks you need to ask your DJ to play the electric slide? I’ve got you. Twelve weeks out, I will send your final Wedding Questionnaire which will help me finalize your photography timeline to ensure you wake up the morning of your wedding and all you have to worry about is having the best day of your life. We’ll set up one final chat two weeks before your wedding to go over all the details one last time.


your wedding day

Those Moments You’ll want to Relive

You two! It's HERE!!! The day you’ve been dreaming of, counting down to, and meticulously planning is finally here. Your job on your wedding day is simply to live out your once in a lifetime day while I ensure not a single moment is overlooked, allowing you to be present with all of your favorite people in the world. From the candids of you two saying your vows, to guiding you through ridiculously gorgeous sunset portraits, to making sure you don’t miss all the hilarious dance moves of your guests during the most epic dance party of your life, it will all be captured for you. I’ll be everywhere you need me to be, but most importantly, I will pour my heart into your day in order to give you images that will help you relive these treasured moments over and over again. 


Gallery Delivery

Memories made
to last 

When you wake up the morning after your wedding and think that you can’t possibly get any higher up on Cloud Nine, just you wait. Pop the champagne and check your inbox where a sneak peak of your wedding images will be waiting for you. Two weeks later a blog post telling the story of your day will go live, meaning your gallery will be updated with tons more photos. And within 8 weeks of your wedding, you can expect to see every last moment. Your mom buttoning up your dress. The moment you said, “I do.” Grandma and Grandpa holding hands in the front row. Your best friend calling out your most embarrassing moments in their speech. It will all be there.


Album Design

Tangible Heirlooms of Your Love Story

I’m all about helping the two of you make sure that your love story has a more tangible place to live other than Social Media. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE instagram, but your love story deserves to be preserved in a more permanent way than just your feed. And let’s be honest... I’ve done this a time or two, and that Shutterfly album you’re planning on making more likely than not will never actually see the light of day. That’s why I include albums in my Collections, so that you can relive the moments that matter whenever you would like. I’ll get to work on designing and creating your one of a kind album to tell your story from beginning to end. Together we’ll work to pick out your favorite images, design gorgeous spreads to show them off, and finally, have the final product delivered straight to your home. You deserve an heirloom that can be seen, touch, and felt not only in your heart, but also in your hands.


 Keep in Touch

A Lifelong Friendship and Celebration of You

I mean it when I say the Experience doesn’t end after your wedding day. I still have a few tricks up my sleeve for you, but mostly I want to stay updated on your life and how marriage is treating you. When you buy a new house, announce that you’re expecting, celebrate a birthday, get a new job, adopt a fur baby, or just have a really damn good hair day, expect me to be there in your DMs to celebrate with you. Like I have said, what you invest in me, I will invest right back into you.

Let your unforgettable experience begin
