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.
For me, documenting your unique wedding story is a gift! I feel lucky that I get to participate in such an intimate day, but I also believe I am deeply suited for it.
I get a lot of joy from making a space where someone can feel welcome, appreciated, and comfortable. This may happen in front of my camera, or by gathering friends around a dinner table.
My partner and I often find ourselves hosting and doing whatever we can to gather old and new friends (which is why we're opening up a bar!).
And in turn, this pattern of our lives spills into how I approach the wedding day. As photographer, I aim to be an attentive set of eyes, a good listener; someone who knows when to step in and assist, and other times stepping back to creatively capture the moment at hand.

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.
