Where is your home?
I reside in Winona, MN. I live on 12 acres and I’m surrounded by beautiful bluffs.
Do you travel for weddings + elopements?
I actually shoot 99% of my weddings + elopements in other cities and states. I LOVE to travel and I’m always ready for my next adventure.
How would you describe your style?
My style is classic, romantic, and timeless. I’m a storyteller and shoot with that same approach.
How long have you been a photographer?
I’ve been a photographer since high school but started shooting professionally in 2010. I’m so proud of where my business is today and who I am as a photographer. My husband actually bought me my first DSLR for a wedding gift. I knew I wanted to document love in all shapes and forms and set out to do it. After almost a decade of practice, sweat, tears AND more practice, here I am.
What’s in your bag?
I’m a Canon girl. I shoot with Canon Mark III’s. Yes, I always have two camera’s on wedding days. It’s crucial that whoever you hire has multiple camera’s. I not only do this for back up but I like to shoot with two different lenses which give two different looks. My go to lenses would be: 50 mm 1.2, 135mm, 70-200, 24-70, 85 ++ my macro 100. Not to mention some external flashes.
Will we have fun?
Heck yes! I have a laid back but professional approach to a wedding day. I’m lighthearted and try to encourage fun + candid moments as much as possible. I help create a seamless photo timeline that will leave you relaxed on the big day.
Do you offer payment plans?
I only require a deposit + contract to secure the wedding date. The remaining balance isn’t due until 60 days prior to the wedding. That gives my clients months (sometimes longer) to save and pay. Good photography is an investment and I believe everyone deserves the opportunity to have beautiful wedding day photos.
Where can I see more of your work and read client reviews?
Glad you asked. You can read reviews on my Facebook, The Knot and Wedding Wire accounts. I’m a Wedding Wire Couples’ Choice Award winner + The Knot-Best of Weddings winner. You can also find my work published + featured in Minnesota Bride Magazine, The Inspired Bride, Bridal Guide, Borrowed + Blue… and more.
