I like to focus on portraying genuine and authentic emotion through your photos while enhancing shadows and natural colors with a little bit of moodiness!

You tell me what you want the feel of your photos to be - romantic and elegant, cozy and comfy, or playful and casual and let me do the rest!

Expect a friend and someone who gets just as excited as you over your special moments in life. This deserves celebration!

Expect fun! Instead of poses, I like to capture the natural and candid moments between you and your loved one(s) so be up for anything - likely a little dance party and endless laughing!

The process

The first step is you submitting an inquiry through my contact page. From there, I will reach out to you within 24-48 hours and set up either a phone call or video chat with you so we can get to know each other a little bit. I'd love to hear your story - whether you just got engaged, are celebrating something fun, or are just wanting to capture something special - I'm all ears! I can't wait to meet you!!

Hey friend,

Let's chat all the fun details! We'll talk locations, outfits, session style, and more. Whether you are looking from a romance and elegance, comfort and cozy vibes, or playful and casual - let's nail down what you're envisioning and make it a perfect day!

Time for the fun!! We will meet at the location and get to shooting. Expect for me to give you direction while allowing you to just get comfortable and have fun, hopefully forgetting that I'm even there ;) I'm there to capture your most candid and authentic selves that convey emotion throughout all of your photos.

The experience will be one you'll remember forever and you'll have photos that are timeless.

Your big day is coming up! It's my goal to make sure you have exactly what you want in your photography package. Let's chat about what that looks like and customize the package especially for you!


packages and investment

For weddings, my goal is to deliver your gallery within 8-12 weeks following your wedding. All other sessions are 2-4 weeks from your session date. However, there are sometimes things outside of my control that can affect these dates, so they are not guaranteed delivery times. I also do my best to provide you with a few sneak peeks within a couple of days following your session :)

When can I expect my images?

For wedding inquiries, we will work up a contract reflecting all of the details of your wedding day. In order to secure your date, I require the signed contract and a 30% non-refundable retainer fee . For all other sessions, a 30% non-refundable retainer fee is required.


Yup!! I probably love elopements the most because of how much I love to travel. Plus, small, intimate weddings are my jam. There's something so special about a small wedding ceremony in a location that is special and meaningful to you :)

Do you travel?

I sure do!! I am an adventurer and love exploring new places and cities. If you don't live in the Madison area, don't worry - I am 100% down to travel to you! 120 miles roundtrip are included in your session cost. Travel fees will be added for anything outside of that.

Do you cover elopements?

For weddings, it is very important to book as soon as possible to ensure you get your first choice photographer. I always suggest booking your wedding photographer at least 12-15 months in advance.  For all other sessions, I recommend booking 1-2 months in advance. However, always inquire first to see if there is availability.
