work with me

  You will find I do not do things like every other photographer.  My focus and heart is in your experience, and an intentional photography endeavor.  This means we dive into your story and design a custom experience around all the things that hold meaning for you, and honor your story in this season.  

honest photography
for those who treasure intentional moments

If you're anything like me, you value quality time, stress free experiences, and making intentional memories.  
you just need someone to help you plan and preserve them in a way that feels like you.

I do not add your name to my calendar,  leave you hanging with no prep work prior to our time together, and show up to snap a bunch of  photos for my socials (ew).

 I truly care about you and believe your story deserves to be told.  When you send me a message, I get so excited to hear all about you, become friends (if we aren't already), and I get started brainstorming and researching how I can curate the best, unique experience for you before you even commit.  Yep, I'm that invested.

planning and direction

I thrive in details, and secretly LOVE to style and help with everything from brainstorming, creative ideas, logistics, and more.  I work with you to map out your unique experience and ensure it's free of all the stress you don't need in your life.  

It's finally the day!  We get together and create intentional moments and timeless photos, and relax with some coffee and good music while we do.
I then work my magic in editing, and you'll receive sneak peeks and full galleries (with proper releases) via electronic gallery delivery. 

Once you say "Let's do this!" - I'll send over a contract and invoice for the non-refundable retainer fee to reserve my services.  The remaining balance is due one month prior to elopement/wedding dates, and one week prior to all other sessions or projects.

Frequently Asked Questions

I've been shooting all types of  photography since 2014, and lead shooting weddings and elopements since 2019. 

I. How long have you been shooting?

My main focus is elopements, intimate, and micro weddings, but the short answer is yes!  I do still take on the occasional traditional wedding.  If you think we'd be a great fit to work together and our values align,  definitely reach out!

II. Do you shoot traditional weddings?

Yes!  I travel all over Minnesota and especially love to serve clients along the North Shore.  While I'm based in the Midwest, I'm always up for exploring nationwide!

III. Do you travel?

I charge a flat rate non-refundable retainer fee for all services when booking.  Payments may be made via credit card, money transfer, check, or cash.  

Yes, I offer payment plans.  You may split your remaining balance between multiple payments.  Just shoot me a heads up and we can set up a  schedule..

IV. How does Payment work?  Do you offer payment plans?

This one of my favorite aspects because my focus is on your story and curating a custom experience.  I like to be involved in planning and details to ensure you don't have to worry about a thing.  

V. Do you help with planning & Styling?

You can expect your complete, hand edited gallery back within 3-4 weeks for most sessions, and 8-10 weeks  for your elopement, wedding, or larger projects.

VI. What's your turnaround time?

N

Frequently Asked Questions

No.  Being an authenticity focused photographer, I do not photoshop or alter you.  I do edit out temporary things like blemishes, acne, bruises, etc. within reason, as well as random, distracting things in the environment.

VII. Will you photoshop/alter us?

I would need notification ASAP in writing, and a signed cancellation agreement.  Your non-refundable retainer fee is non-refundable for the original date that you booked.  You may re-book with a new date and a new non-refundable retainer fee.

VIII. What happens if we need to cancel?

I am 100% committed to being present on your date.  In the event a rare emergency would come up, I do have backup plans in place. 
 
I  would offer the option of a replacement associate photographer who would work in my place in person, and I would still edit your photos and continue the experience with you.  If this was not a situation you would like go with, the next option would entail me helping  you find a new photographer and refund all monies paid.

IX. What happens if you need to cancel?

YES!  I'm a bit paranoid (just ask my husband), so I have a backup system in place that allows for your photos to be backed up in at least 5 different locations (minimum) while I am working on them.  

X. Do you have a backup system?

Yes, I absolutely do!  I carry business liability insurance.

XI. Do you have insurance?

No, I do not provide or release RAW, unedited photos.  Editing is part of my creative style and process as an artist.  

XII. Do you give out Raw, unedited photos?
