What can I expect on my wedding day?

On your wedding day, we will guide you through your portraits in a manner that will feel natural and fun. You do not need to worry about the idea of having to know how to "pose." We're experts with angels and will provide little prompts to make you feel natural and relaxed, resulting in effortlessly romantic and timeless photographs.

We, of course, incorporate candid imagery into our workflow as well, to ensure those "laugh out loud" and "joyful tears running down your grandmother's cheek" are captured too!

Do you have a second photographer?

Yes. I photograph 90% of my weddings with a second photographer. Because my clients and I are both so portrait and detail-oriented, having a second photographer is non-negotiable unless the wedding day is more of an intimate, elopement style gathering. For much larger weddings and/or even more extensive coverage, a third photographer may be suggested.

Do you photograph using a "shot list"?

Yes and no. With every wedding day, there are the same pivotal moments that will need to be photographed, so of course, those are a given. Aside from those moments, I prefer to let my creative senses breathe and observe what is happening around me and photograph them in my own way.

How would you describe your photography style?

I would describe my photography style as naturally elegant, sophisticated, with a bit of a timeless yet editorial edge. The tone and colors of my photographs are true to what they actually look like in person (no trendy filters here), and the way I guide my clients into "poses" is the icing on the cake, delivering the bit of editorial edge that my couples love. My entire philosophy is to create images that make my clients feel beautiful and that will never go out of style.

Where are you located?

I am dual based and destination based! I have two home bases one in Eastern North Carolina and another in Miami. I also photograph weddings and editorials abroad and offer comprehensive collections with travel fees covered.

What do your wedding collections include?

Each wedding collection is different from the other. Most of my clients have bespoke collections made for them since no two wedding days are truly ever the same.

With that being said, every collection does include Fine Art photography, a second photographer, an online gallery, and travel.

What is your booking process?

Once we have already coordinated your wedding date with my availability, you have chosen the perfect wedding day collection, and we're all set. I will send you a contract agreement to sign and request a retainer to be placed. Once those two things have been fulfilled, I am officially your photographer!
