Where are you located?
 
I live in Hannibal, MO just 90 miles north of St. Louis area. We travel to weddings in Iowa, across Missouri and also Illinois. We also travel back to my home state of Pennsylvania for weddings as well, so please contact us if you're from PA!
 
How would you describe your shooting style?
 
NATURAL. ROMANTIC. GENUINE. TIMELESS. & FUN.
 
I love what I do. Since 2012, capturing love stories and dream wedding days have been my passion. I love getting to know new couples who ultimately become like close friends. I strive to provide not only breathtaking, timeless photographs, but also a memorable client experience. My images are organic and as natural as possible. I shoot candids and what's in front of me as it's happening so you can relive every moment of your special day. Posed portraits are also a must for mom and dad! My business and brand reflect who I am as a person and I wouldn't be where I am today without potential clients like you!
 
How far in advance do we need to book your services?
 
For engagement sessions I suggest booking at least 3-4 months prior to your desired date. Especially in the fall time I book up to 6 months in advance!
 
For weddings I book 12-24 months in advance! So as soon as you book your venue, I would suggest booking your photographer! The longer you wait, the lesser the chance of having a quality wedding photographer for your big day.
 
How many photos will I receive?
 
You can expect 25-50+ special edited images from your engagement session.
 
On average, we deliver 400-800 special edited wedding photos, depending on hours of coverage, second shooter images, etc.
 
When will I receive my photos/video?
 
Engagements - 2-3 weeks via an online gallery
 
Weddings - 3-5 months (time of year considering) via an online gallery & then after a custom, keepsake print box and USB
 
Will I be able to print my photos anywhere?
 
Yes. Right now we do offer copyright print releases for your photos. However, we also offer professional prints ordered from a professional print lab solely for photographers. This is a way we can guarantee the quality of our images - the way we intended them to look!! We cannot guarantee the quality or color correctness of images printed by any other outside labs i.e. Walmart, Walgreens, etc. You can view our professional prints and products and order directly from your Online Gallery!
 
When do I pay for my session/wedding services?
 
Most engagement sessions are included in your wedding collection. If booking only a session, payment is due the day of. A non-refundable retainer is due to reserve your wedding date. Wedding balances must be paid in full 2 weeks before the date. You can of course pay for your session a head of time and wedding balance payments can be made as well at your discretion.
 
Do you travel for destination weddings?
