EXPERIENCE OVER EVERYTHING

I believe that there's no such thing as the "right" or "perfect" way to get married. There are so many different paths that may be just right for you. Your day could be a sweet little ceremony on a hillside with just the two of you, it could be bare feet in the sand with your closet family, or it could be a huge party in a villa or resort with friends from near and far. There’s no right or wrong. So no matter what you imagine your wedding day like, embrace it and make it truly yours.
 

Because in the end, it all gets stripped down to only what’s important and what lasts. Just the two of you up against the world.
 

And hey, I'll be along for the ride to capture the whole thing - cheering you on every step of the way and loving every minute of it.

faqs

I want to book what is the next step?
I will provide a proposal and contract for you to sign online through Honeybook. Once you sign and pay 50% of the total invoice, you're date is booked. The rest of the payment will be completed prior to the photoshoot.

 

Do you travel?
Yes! I can easily get to St. Thomas, St. John, British Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico for a very affordable travel rate. These packages include some travel expenses, but depending on the location their may be some minor additional fees. If you have a different destination in mind just let me know! I can create a custom travel fee estimate for you.

 

When do we get the images?
4-5 weeks to receive the full online gallery, but I always send a few sneak peek photos within 2-3 days.

 

Should we take engagement photos before the wedding?
Yes! Engagement and couples sessions are my jam! They're the best way to get comfortable in front of the camera and to get to know each other better as well. If you're not on island for engagement photos, I highly recommend "day before" or "day after" photos (or a few days after!). Day after photos can either be fun and casual or another chance to throw on that wedding dress.
