Why your wedding photos may be the most important wedding investment you make. . . .

Your wedding photos will be the most tangible memory you will have of your wedding day, moreso than any other element of your day. The food, the music, the flowers - all that will fade over time, but you will always be able relive your wedding day by looking at your wedding album or the photographs displayed on your walls. You want photos that you can put into a beautiful coffee table book to look at over and over again as you enter this new chapter of your life, with this new family you've chosen and may start to grow. These are will be the photos that you hopefully will hand down to your children (if you choose to have them). This is why it's so important to find a photographer whose style you love to capture the details of the day you've invested so much time, thought, emotion and money into. 

 

When choosing a wedding photographer, look at the style of their photos and try to picture your wedding day through that photographer's eyes. If you can see your wedding day in my style of photography and you are in love with the vision, then you know I'm the photographer to be your eyes and ears for the day.

I work extremely hard during your wedding day to accomplish your vision and make sure I leave at the end of the night with all of the photos I need to make that happen. Weddings are much more work than they sound and I give it my all while shooting to produce the highest quality images that you will be looking at for the rest of your lives together.

 

I am hyper aware that it is incredibly difficult to re-create wedding photos, and that is why I give 1000% effort during your wedding day, both to provide you with photos you love AND with a great experience with a professional photographer. You do not want your memories in the hands of someone who doesn't know what they're doing, who lacks confidence or is just "there for the money." You don't want someone who just sees this as one more business exchange. You want someone who treats your wedding photos as seriously as if they were their own.

Each custom-built collection includes individual retouching of hundreds of photos, plus specialized beauty retouching (for the bride and groom only, as needed). No one takes a perfect photo 100 percent of the time, and if you have a skin break-out, dark under eye circles, or any other minor issues I don't want you to stress about it during your day! 

 

All collections also include an engagement session (a $400 value for non-wedding clients).

For those who are not interested in an engagement session or for whom it is logistically impractical to have one, the engagement session can be substituted for an additional hour of wedding day coverage, or a discount off of your collection. 

 

Travel fees outside a 30 mile radius of Louisville, KY may apply (for Lexington and Cincinnati clients: the roundtrip travel fee from Louisville is $50 for each session and/or wedding).

Leave a few words about what it's like to work with me at these sites!

let's get acquainted: engagement sessions

GREE00172-wb_edited.jpg

Why do we need an engagement session?

Engagement sessions are not only a great way to get professional photos of your relationship - they are also a way for me to get to know you before shooting your wedding!

 

My engagement sessions aren't so much me putting you in awkward poses and asking you to smile.

 

My sessions are more like a game of getting to know you, and the way you interact with each other.

Please check out this page for more information on how I conduct engagement sessions. Check out my engagement gallery here for an idea of what kind of photos you'll get with me!

Your engagement session images will be available to download within two weeks of your session date, and will be included in your wedding USB drive.

*Prices are subject to change at any time. However, if they increase I will honor the price at the time of your booking.
