Each one of my couples has their own unique love story, and I absolutely love capturing each of them. From breath taking portraits with beautiful scenery to the tiny details that make your wedding unique, we’ll be sure to capture it all so that you can relive these beautiful moments time after time for generations to come!
Ever since I started photography in junior high, I knew I wanted to provide more than just beautiful photos. I believe wedding photography is about telling stories, and I love creating an experience for my couples.
I’m the kind of photographer who is more like a friend — I’ll laugh with you and your loved ones, and also cry happy tears during the sweetest moments of the night.
Once I have received your inquiry I will send you a short questionnaire to get to know a little bit more about you and what your wants/needs might be. After that I send you the MJP wedding experience guide that filled with an about us section, your investment, and a short FAQ. One of the most important things to me is building a relationship with you. I truly value our time in getting to know one another. This helps me better understand who you are so that I can better serve you in capturing your love story. I’d love to meet up for coffee, tea, or a glass of wine to share my excitement with you in helping you plan for your beautiful wedding day to come! If we cannot meet, a video chat is perfectly fine too! This will help us find out if we are the perfect fit!
YAY! You decided that you want to become an MJP Couple! Let’s make sure that your date is secured so we can help make your dreams come to life! I’ll send over your custom booking proposal where you are able to review your package, pay the retainer and sign an agreement to make your wedding day official with MJP as an MJP couple! How EXCITING!
Now that we are official, it's time to start celebrating! This is where the fun begins! After you are officially booked with MJP, we then schedule your engagement session. I send over helpful tips throughout the whole process. Your engagement session is important because it prepares you for what to expect on your wedding day so you can be relaxed in front of the camera. Once the engagement photos are finished you will be sent an online gallery of images to download on any device to share with family and friends. If you would like a bridal session, I will help you through that process as well!
I love helping my brides have a stress free environment. This means that throughout the planning process I am always here to help you with advice, vendor recommendations, and anything else you have questions about, I am here for you! Once we are 6 weeks away from the wedding date, I will help you customize your wedding timeline, that way we can get all of the beautiful and exciting moments on your special day!
How EXCITING! This is the first day to begin your journey as one! It is finally the day that you have dreamed of to celebrate a beautiful moment in your lives! You can just call us a bonus bridesmaid and groomsmen! We work with you both throughout the whole day and help any way that we can! It’s time for you all to relax and have fun! So lets get this party started!
You will receive your full gallery within 6 weeks. You are welcome to download them onto any device and share them with family and friends! I encourage my MJP bride and groom to make a date night out of viewing your wedding gallery to relive the most beautiful day of your lives! So grab your popcorn and coke and enjoy one of the best memories of your lives!
If you purchased an album with your package or if you would like to consider ordering an album, I will work with you after your gallery is delivered to help you with the designs. I cherish albums because they are a valuable object that you can reminisce over and over and maybe one day share your beautiful day with your children and grandchildren!
Generations from now, your 4th or 5th great grandchildren will be able to see what you looked like on your wedding day. You won't be there to tell your love story, but these images will.
I believe in timeless images that freeze a moment in time, so that we always have something to look back on the most precious moments in our lives. A chance to reminisce back on some of our favorite days.
This is also why I believe your wedding photographer should be so much more than just a girl with a camera. I want to be more like a friend with a fancy camera on your wedding day so that you can feel comfortable having your photos taken!
First looks can be great to give you and your soon to be husband a moment alone before it all starts! I get the chills every time because of how personal and beautiful those moments are. You'll also get gorgeous images from that moment to cherish forever! If you're not sure, I'd be happy to chat with you to figure out what's best for you as a couple!
No, you do not have to have an engagement session, but I do highly suggest it. I gives us all a chance to get to know one another and to shake off the nerves. I want you both to be comfortable in front of the camera and with me, that way on your wedding day you both are like models you never knew that you could be and you will be more relaxed on your wedding day knowing what to expect!
My style of photography is fun, full of joy and genuine! I am like your bonus bridesmaid. I help fluff your dress or get you anything you need or answer any questions. I like to be relaxed while working hard to create your love story! My style of edits is bright, joyful and colorful.
Once you sign the client agreement and pay the non-refundable retainer fee your date is secure to you and your groom for your wedding day!
Don’t worry. Once I have all of your details of what you would like on your wedding day we can go over a timeline schedule to figure out the time together.
I only photograph up to 20 each year so that I can give my bride and grooms a personal and great experience!
