Weddings

My goal at weddings is to authentically capture your day, so you can have fun, live in the moment, and truly experience what you work so hard to put together. Your wedding day is going to go by quickly, but when you see your photos, I want all the memories to come back to you because my work has created a complete snapshot of all the special people and events from the best day of your life. The fact that I’m in charge of creating future family heirlooms is not a task I take lightly. I work hard to make sure the entire process is stress-free for you from the moment we connect to the delivery of the beautifully crafted images that you will treasure for years to come. 


Behind the lens, I try my best to stay out of the way and focus on the people in front of the camera rather than to stepping in and constantly posing you and your loved ones. Will I help pose you during portraits? Of course. Do I also strive to capture the authentic laughs and interactions between you and your favorite people? Absolutely. Throughout the day, I’ll give the appropriate amount of guidance and direction to capture the day as it unfolds. Former couples have appreciated my positivity, organization, and flexibility on their wedding day. A past bride noted, "I feel like you kept me so grounded and took control when I was overwhelmed which meant so much to me, on top of doing your actual hired job and taking the most incredible photographs."

Creating heirlooms that your family will cherish for generations

THE PROCESS

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT 
WORKING WITH me

To ensure your wedding day is captured exactly how you envision, let’s chat. Ideally, we will connect about 12 to 18 months prior to your big day. Whether in person, on the phone, or via a video call, I want to hear more about you, your partner, the life you're making together, and what you hope for on your wedding day.

Let's grab a cup of coffee (I’ll be ordering a maple latte) and get to know each other

THE NEXT STEP

Once your date is officially reserved via an electronic contract and a paid 50% deposit, I’m happy to serve as a resource for vendor recommendations, timeline creation and more! Let's stay in touch during your wedding planning process.

Date secured and now the fun begins!

THE NEXT STEP

Sessions can take place anywhere from immediately following a proposal to just a few weeks before the wedding. I’ve found that there isn’t a “good” or “bad” time to take your photos. 

The Engagement Session - Let’s get you comfortable in front of the camera

THE NEXT STEP

I check in about a month before the wedding to start chatting about timeline specifics, special details, family formal shot lists, special traditions and anything else I should know about your big day.

Wedding Prep - About a month prior to the big day, we’ll get organized

THE NEXT STEP

It's finally here! The day the two of you say "I Do" and dance the night away surrounded by your family and friends. Just know I’m excited to celebrate and capture your wedding day. It's going to be awesome.

The Big Day - Can you believe your big day is finally here?! 

THE NEXT STEP

You can expect your photos to be delivered via an online gallery within about four to six weeks from your wedding day. At that time, I’ll also send over details about preserving your images through prints and albums. 

They’re Here - Get the tissues ready

THE NEXT STEP

I hope the relationship doesn't end after I deliver your photographs. I want to hear about the adventures of married life. And if you decide to have kids, I’d love to document your growing family.

Keep in Touch - This doesn’t have to be goodbye

THE NEXT STEP

Ellen is one of the best decisions we made regarding our wedding day and we feel so lucky to have had her document such an important day in our lives.
