Choosing the right photographer for your wedding is about so much more than price; it is about finding the right person to tell your story exactly the way you want to remember it. It is important to document your life in such a way that you can look back and appreciate the moments you have preserved. Wedding photography truly is an investment in your future. I love knowing that the photographs I take are some that will be cherished years down the road. I imagine, twenty, thirty years from now, one of your children pulling out that sweet photo of the two of you and their heart swelling with the same love you felt that day. For me, this job is about much more than a paycheck.
I also offer engagement sessions in the Tampa and Central Florida area! Engagement session give you a chance to experience being in front of the camera before your wedding day and leads to more natural, comfortable photographs in the end! It's also a great way to get super sweet photos for your Save the Date's and wedding website!

I am a storyteller by nature, and I like to be able to tell the whole story. By being there to capture everything - from the time you are getting ready to you and your guests dancing the night away - I get to tell the complete story of your wedding day. Every wedding is different, but I have found that between 8-10 hours is ample time to be able to tell your whole story.
I always suggest including a second photographer for your wedding day. Having two photographers allows us to capture things that are happening at the same time, meaning you won't miss a thing when you look back on your wedding photos. If you're getting ready at your venue and your other half is hanging out at the hotel, having two photographers means we'll capture all the action without compromising the important stuff. Plus, it's so much fun to see the story of your day unfold from two totally different angles!
In this tech-driven world, digital files are a must. Having a digital copy of your images also ensures that you are able to archive your memories, create prints and display images online. You'll receive your images via digital download or you can upgrade to a beautiful,keepsake crystal usb flash drive.
Photographs were meant to be printed and held, passed down from generation to generation. I have this vision of my couples curled up together, their favorite bottle of wine, a little bit of soft music playing in the background and all of their images laid out in front of them. With this vision in mind, I offer a unique archival quality product that can be beautifully displayed in your home. There's just something to be said about a real, tangible photograph that you can't get from looking at a computer screen or an iPad. I believe we should all leave something behind, why not beautiful photographs. It's important to tell your story.
I provide complimentary engagement sessions for all of my wedding clients. These sessions are a great way for us to get to know one another & discover how to make you comfortable in front of the camera. Think of your engagement session as less of a planned outing to pose on a bench and more of a date that I just happen to crash. I'll give you enough direction to not feel awkward but enough distance to enjoy each others' company.
Individually, the images from your wedding day are art. Collectively, they tell the entire story of your day, from start to finish. Your wedding album is your first family heirloom, something you will pass down over the years. Every album is handcrafted and designed to last. Albums can be designed to be between 20 and 60 pages to tell the full story of your wedding day. Smaller albums are also available as guestbooks featuring images from your engagement session. Read more about these beautiful albums here.
Remember those tiny photo booths you always crammed into at the mall and you got those cute little strips to hang on the fridge?
You provide the space and I'll bring the fun. Motion activated which means the end result is a super fun video of all the antics and a gallery full of the images.
