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.  My advice when searching for a photographer: find someone who shares a similar outlook on life as you. This may be death to my business, but it's ok if it isn't me. I want us both to be so fricken excited about working together that when it hurts to say goodbye. Because for me, I get attached to the folks I work with. You are more to me than clients, and I hope you feel that I am more than a vendor to you.

In the end, I'd love for you to be so sure it's worth it, that it isn't even a question.

Frequently asked

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 based on standard airfare rate + 2 nights lodging accommodations (3 for international) + per diem rate of $35 a day for meal expenses. Discounted rates for any bucket list location. Custom quotes welcome! 

Places I travel to frequently (other than HI & MI) : California // Texas 
Bucket List Locations: Pacific Northwest // Zion // Colorado // Iceland // Greece // Ireland 

Do you travel?

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. As of right now, any weddings booked in these three states are inclusive of travel expenses.
