I believe weddings include, yet are not limited to: 

backyard weddings, vow-renewals, huge parties, elopements, destination weddings, dinner-party-vow-readings, courthouse ceremonies, dive-bar weddings.

I'm here for all of it.

I married my best friend at the Municipal Court in November 2016. We are big fans of marriage. 

I believe that no one can write the rule book on your marriage, much less your wedding day. So I want to make sure you hear me when I say, do the wedding that makes sense to you.

However you choose to celebrate, I want to be there to document + cheer you on. 

I feel passionately about giving someone - in front of the camera or otherwise - the space to be themselves. Making room for them to feel welcomed, appreciated, and comfortable. Photography has been the most important teacher in showing me just how to do that. 

And throughout 10+ years of documenting weddings, I've seen what magic can happen when you choose to take a step back and let the moments unfold.  

This is how I approach the wedding day.

Where are you based?

I'm based in my hometown of Charleston, SC . I love this place and feel lucky to live + work here. 

That said, I love to travel, especially to make photos. 

How many hours do we need?

I've photographed courthouse weddings with only 2 hours of coverage, and up to 10 hours for the full-day (i.e. getting ready to send off). How you do it is totally up to you.

How do we book you?

A 50% retainer and contract is required to hold your date.

Can you help us with our timeline? 

Yes. I am happy to go through your timeline with you and figure out what parts of the day you want to spend the most / least time on, and how to move through photos easily. Feel free to reach me anytime to help out with this.
