How do you photograph weddings?

I would love to be by your side on your special day. To make sure we are the right match, fill out a book-a-session questionnaire with your information and I will send you a wedding questionnaire and set up a time to chat about all of the great details for your big day! Your wedding day should be relaxing, enjoyable, and one of the most monumental days of your life. I am here to guide, support, and most importantly celebrate you!

Where are you based and do you travel?

I am based in Cincinnati, Ohio. If you are looking at a location outside a 30-mile radius of the city I do charge a travel fee. I occasionally am in the Northern Virginia area and would love to set up a session with you while I am in town. Follow my Instagram for the latest updates.

When will we get our photos?

You will receive an online gallery link with all your photos within 4-8 weeks (sometimes less depending on the season I photograph your story). You can download all the photos from the private gallery but also share them, choose your favorites, and even order prints, cards, or canvases from the gallery store!

What types of sessions do you offer?

I am available for weddings, engagements, intimate weddings, elopements, first birthday cake smash celebrations, family, milestones, maternity, lifestyle newborn, seniors, headshots, and brand sessions.

How long have you been a photographer?

I officially started my business in 2018 but it didn't start there. I learned about photography, took a course, and started my photography journey with black and white film developing my own photos in high school. I was a hobbyist through college taking photos of friends, shadowing professionals, and always packed my camera with me on trips. I became an elementary school teacher for four years, moved around a bit with my husband's career, and then dove fully into photography after I became a mother.
