My main goal is to artfully record the real emotion and authentic moments of your day.

FAQ

How do you photograph weddings?

I love being by your side to help you before your wedding day. I'll create a wedding photography timeline to maximize your photography coverage and help pick the best moments for your couple photos, your send off photos and every moment in between. On your wedding day, my focus will be on capturing the feelings, the mood, the emotions, the calm and crazy moments and all the details that make your wedding unique. From extravagant affairs to more intimate ones, following the timeline keeps us on track so nothing is missed. My style is mainly journalistic but I will also adjust certain things to get the best possible photos such as moving you into the most pleasing light available or removing elements in the background that may be distracting. Much like a film director, I can also help curate a moment to happen such as First Looks, gift giving or letter readings. For more information, see the Weddings page or contact me.

Where are you based and do you travel?

I am based in both Moulton, AL and Dunlap, TN and yes, I love to travel! If you want me to photograph your story, I'm there! My travel fees are on a case by case basis. I only charge you what my costs are with no excess. One of my favorite things is discovering new places so I keep my travel expenses to a minimum to help you stretch your budget. Travel fees do not apply to locations within 30 miles of Moulton, AL or Dunlap, TN.

When will we get our photos?

Weddings: You will receive an online gallery link with all your photos within a maximum of 6 weeks (sometimes less depending on the season I photograph your story). You can download all the photos from the gallery, share them, choose your favorites, and order the items in your selected package and additional prints, wall art, albums and other high-end, professional quality products.

All other sessions: You will receive an online gallery link to your photos within a maximum of 2 weeks (sometimes less). You can download all the photos from the gallery (if you selected a package with digitals) share them, choose your favorites, and order additional prints, wall art, albums and other high-end, quality products. I have several package options that include the above mentioned products.

How many pictures will we receive?

My goal is to tell your story fully, completely and beautifully. I always choose quality rather than quantity. While I cannot guarantee a definite amount of photos, my common averages are listed below.

Wedding: Your final number of images is contingent upon the nature of your celebration. For a typical 8 hours of coverage, my couples typically receive between 400 to 1000 fully edited images. Mini-monies & small elopements will typically yield 50 - 300 images.

All other sessions: A typical 1 hour session will yield between 25 to 50 fully edited images.
