the WEDDING experience
AUTHENTIC, ARTFUL MOMENTS
IMAGES AS UNIQUE AS YOU
As a photographer, I try not to interfere or direct too much. I don’t want to leave my footprints in your moments.
My job is to capture and share organic moments of time, not manufacture them.
My images are for individuals who take joy in the small things and seek to soak up the wonder of the adventure.
Those who are authentically and unapologetically themselves. People who know life is short, so eat the cake, and always be kind.
And lastly, those who believe in the grandness of love.

Coverage starting at $3250
Standard wedding day coverage is 6-8 hours, including a mini/full engagement session, high resolution digital images with a print release. Second photographers, albums, prints, more coverage can be added but we will decide what works best for you and your day rather than try to fit you into a cookie cutter box. Custom pricing for elopements or weddings is available. Contact me to talk about what you need.
Engagement & Portraits $550
Engagement sessions to couples who do not need wedding coverage, or for portraits. Sessions are 1.5 hours long at a location of your choice, and come with the high resolution digital images and a print release.
Travel fees may apply.
My couples are….
Not professional models.
I genuinely believe that authentic emotion, and good light trump an epic location. If you’re willing to be yourselves with me, we’ll get the good stuff.
Frequently asked Questions
We will start with a consultation, which is really just a fancy word for meeting up and getting to know each other. As much as you are choosing to work with me, I also need to feel comfortable with you. If you don’t like someone’s personality, or even if it just doesn’t mesh with your own, things can get tense/awkward or uncomfortable which will show in your photos.
After we have a chat, which often I like to meet for coffee/tea or ice cream and just talk about the two of you. How you met, what you like to do, what you’re envisioning for your wedding – if we all get good vibes I will send over a proposal and contract electronically.
A non-refundable retainer is paid to hold your date and then we will get to scheduling an engagement session!
Every wedding comes with high-resolution digital images and a print release. You can print them for your home, share them with friends, order albums or canvases from wherever you choose.
I never guarantee any set number of images. When I’m shooting, I’m focused on catching happy moments and I don’t want to be worrying about if I’m shooting enough, just to hit a certain number. I’m not there to capture EVERY moment, but the important and special ones. That being said, a typical wedding gallery from an 8 hour day will have 350-500 images.
I always recommend printing your photos, but if you’d like to do that on your own not through me that’s totally fine. But I do offer prints, albums, and specialty items that are available to add on to any wedding coverage.
Engagement sessions are a must. Even if you don’t think you need one, or you’ve already had one. A mini engagement session is included in any booking. It is so so important that we work together prior to your wedding day. Engagement sessions allow us many things:
- We get to know each other better. Your photos will 1000000% (yes, one million) better when your photographer doesn’t feel like a stranger. You will feel much more comfortable to be yourself during private or special moments when your photographer feels like a friend.
- You get to see how I work, and see yourself in a finished product. Even if you’ve been photographed together, every photographer works slightly differently. Maybe you love my images in my portfolio but it’s can be different seeing yourself in them. It’s a small check to make sure you will be happy with the final product. If for some reason you get your images back and think, nope this isn’t actually what I want. We can still fix it, and find you a photographer better suited for your needs. That’s never my goal (and never happened yet) but I like us both to have that assurance. Your wedding day cannot be replicated. Also, once you have worked with me, you will know what portraits will be like on your wedding day. It will be more natural and feel easier (and probably a little quicker) which will result in better photos.
- Thirdly, engagement sessions are fun! Engagement sessions are able to celebrate the fun side of your love story. Wedding days can often feel rushed and an engagement session allows you to have a few photos of the two of you in that wonderful exciting time of your relationship in a relaxed and celebratory environment.
Yes and no. As much as I love travelling and experiencing new places, I also love coming home at the end of the night to my own family. Travelling with tons of gear, and getting work visas for working abroad is not my favorite thing. I will make exceptions for some locations though. Within Connecticut and the greater New England area, the answer is usually yes! I don’t generally charge travel fees, however depending on your location and the hours, I may require a hotel stay to make sure I arrive there on time or get home safely.
