From getting ready to the send off at the end of the night - I'm there to document everything that is happening, capturing the meaningful moments as they unfold in a beautiful way.

During portraits, I will step in and guide you through the poses. It's my job to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera and give you images you've dreamed of. I strive to work quickly and efficiently so you can go back to your guests and enjoy your amazing day! 

At the end of the day, it's all about LOVE and memories and I want your photos to be a reminder of wildly happy times.

KAITLYN & ERIC

Times are changing, and what once used to be a secret getaway is now widely chosen by couples who want a uniquely beautiful and perfectly intimate celebration. I love both large and small weddings, because at the heart of it, it's all about union of two people.

ELOPEMENTS

Do you do posed family photos? 

Absolutely! They are a great keepsake for the family for generations and it's a great opportunity to capture the family together, looking their best!

How long does it take to receive our images after the wedding?

I know you want to show off these images, so I pride myself on delivering your wedding gallery within 6 weeks. I will send you sneak peek photos soon after the wedding so you can share the exciting news with your friends!

How do I hold a date?

I require a signed contract and a retainer fee (30% of the total) in order to hold a date.

HOW MANY IMAGES SHOULD WE EXPECT TO BE DELIVERED?

The number of photos depends on the length of the wedding and the coverage time. It's usually between 60-100 photos per hour of coverage.

DO YOU OFFER PAYMENT PLANS?

Yes, I offer an installment billing option of three or six payments. The final payment has to be made two weeks prior to the wedding. 

CAN WE DO OUR OWN PRINTING OR DO WE HAVE TO PRINT THROUGH YOU?

I offer printing services but you are not obligated to order prints from me. I can provide you with a print release form for your use at a printing lab of your choice.

ARE THERE TRAVEL COSTS?

There's no travel fee anywhere within one hour from Kill Devil Hills, NC.

What camera gear do you use?

I shoot on Nikon D750 and Nikon Z6. I have three prime lenses, and one zoom (35mm 1.8, 50mm 1.8, 85mm 1.8, and 70-200mm) and multiple flashes. I am geared to do off camera flash, but I prefer to use natural light whenever I can!

DO YOU SEND RAW PHOTOS?

No. Editing is half the magic! My photos wouldn't be complete without it. 

Frequently asked questions

Whether it's a wedding, family portraits, or a maternity session, my goal is the same. I want to capture your most joyful, genuine moments. I do my best to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera, recording each of these moments in time.
