More than a fad, I truly believe in film. While digital photos are the bulk of the photos you'll receive from me, every collection includes 35 mm film and/or vintage Polaroid images. Based on your collection, we'll work together to determine what type of film will be best to use for your day!
Then you are 1000000% in the right place! Whether you are traveling to New Orleans with your closest friends and family, or you have roots here, I specialize in documenting intimate and intentional wedding days that have your experience and love at the center. If you are forgoing a traditional timeline in exchange for a wedding experience that leaves you + your guests feeling in love with New Orleans, I'M YOUR WOMAN.
Both my unbiased and totally biased opinion say yes. I value the uniqueness and complexity of all of my couples and strive to express that in my work. Your photos will not look exactly like my past couples because you are not them, you are you - in all of your wild and lovely ways. I specialize in documenting tangible, heartfelt moments that you can hold in your hands decades after your wedding day has passed.
On average, couples typically invest between 4900 - 8000 with me on their 2024 wedding day based on the needs of their specific event. For weekday elopements, couples on average invest between 2000 - 4000.
After you've stalked around my website and believe we are a good fit, please fill out my contact form with as much information as possible! Once I get your inquiry, I will respond in 24 hours with additional information and availability.
I am currently booking for 2024 weddings, and have a handful of spots left for 2023 elopements.
For weddings, you can expect 2-3 planning calls and in depth questionnaires to make sure every aspect of your day is covered. I also suggest scheduling an engagement session where we can meet up + get to know each other before the wedding!
For sessions, you can expect an in depth questionnaire that will help me get to know you as a couple. I also meet up with my couples 30-60 minutes prior to sessions to grab drinks or coffee!
I love working with couples that are equal parts fun and light hearted, but rooted in deep connection. More than anything, I want our time to be equal parts fun and meaningful. My hope is to share some laughs and leave feeling like friends.
Whether it’s your story or the way you’ve arranged your wedding, I’m here for the couples and weddings that don’t quite fit a traditional mold of what getting married looks like. Sneaking off to New Orleans to elope, or are opting out of a white dress? I’m here for it!
What this doesn’t mean is unplanned or unprepared. But think more so, go with the flow, roll with the punches kinda of vibe. My favorite days to photograph aren’t the perfect ones, but the ones that are lovely and meaningful to you as a couple.
New Orleans // Hawaii // Michigan. I live in the New Orleans area, have my family in Michigan and my in-laws in Hawaii. Therefore, I have home "bases" in each state. Any weddings booked in these three states are inclusive of travel expenses.
You can bank on me sending previews within 24 hours of your session or event! From there, sessions have a turn around time of 2-4 weeks. Galleries for weddings take anywhere from 6-10 weeks for delivery depending on the time of year.
We'll definitely work together on this. I want you to bring several options from your closet for each of you, and we will create a couple of styles that best suit the location(s) that we are shooting in. I'll also be sending you a what to wear guide as well.
Yes! Many of my weddings take place out of state. I have a few places that I love to travel to frequently, as well as places that I am dying to visit! In addition, I am willing to travel anywhere! Travel fees are included in the customized quote, and based on standard airfare rate + 2 nights lodging accommodations (3 for international). Discounted rates for any bucket list location. Custom quotes welcome!
Places I travel to frequently (other than HI & MI) : California // Texas
Bucket List Locations: Zion // Maine // Iceland // Japan // Ireland
For weddings, you can expect at least 50 per hour of coverage. For sessions, it ranges anywhere from 75-150 depending on how much time we spend together.
If I am traveling for your wedding, travel expenses will be factored into the initial pricing guide that I send to you upon inquiry. There will be no additional expenses to account for outside of that number.
100% yes absolutely. This is not just for me, but for you as well. Contracts are strictly between the couple and myself, regardless of who is paying for services.
I offer a 5% discount for all active duty military, first responders and social service providers (social workers, teachers + nurses), and a 5% discount for those using Aloha Bridal Connections on any island of Hawaii. I also offer a 10% kama'aina discount.
Anytime, my friends! Weather is generally best from October thru May, and it gets fairly warm in the summer months. With that being said, there are great discounts and lesser crowds in the summer months, so don’t count them out!
YES! Absolutely. As a transplant to New Orleans myself, I’ve learned from experience how to navigate the city as a newbie. I’d love to offer my guidance and recommendations of other wedding vendors and how to best navigate the area.
