I know you’ve probably seen a ton of posts as of late about COVID-19. I know as a photographer, every company that I follow or subscribe to has sent me an email pertaining to the virus. If you’re a bride, I hope that your vendors have been in touch with you about what’s going on. […]

Planning Your Wedding During COVID-19

I wrote this originally in 2015, but took some time in 2019 to update this post! I get asked often, “How did you have time to take all of those amazing pictures of the bride and groom?! There must have been a TON of them you took!” Haha, okay, I don’t get asked those exact […]

To My Brides | Say Yes to a First Look

We often hear of couples doing destination weddings, but did you know that destination engagement sessions are also a thing? They are a fun way for couples to go somewhere different than where they live and still have their wedding around their friends and family. Destination weddings are amazing and fun, but if you don’t […]

Planning a Destination Engagement Session

Your wedding day is the most important day of your life and you obviously want everything to go as perfect as possible, including the weather. Rain is not something you generally pray for or cheer about on your wedding day. I get that. You want sunshine and clear skies. And as a bride, you might […]

Can I have the RAWs? This question comes up in photography groups I’m in DAILY: clients and potential clients who are asking photographers for RAW files from their weddings. Photographers understand why this is NOT an industry standard, but many clients do not. And after 10 years in the industry, I can also tell you […]

To My Brides | Can I Have the RAW Files?

A few months ago, I did a post on why you want getting ready pictures. Today I am doing to touch on how the getting ready portion of the day will set the tone for the rest of the day. With nine years of experience in the wedding industry and over 100 weddings under my belt, […]

To My Brides | Setting the Tone for the Wedding Day

Ever since I started my business nearly 9 years ago, I have always offered full day coverage on a wedding. This includes 8 hours of wedding day coverage. The only times I have done less is when I am shooting an elopement. I typically book one or two of those a year; but after shooting […]

To My Brides | 8 Hour Minimum

Last week, I did a blog post on “When Your Day Doesn’t Go as Planned”. It ended up being a very successful blog post that got shared a lot by my brides. Many of them commented and shared some of their own stories. Betsy got married last year and after she read the blog post, […]

To My Brides | When Your Day Doesn’t Go as Planned | Real Life Story

Your wedding day is the most important day of your life and it goes by in a flash (and yes, the pun was intended)! I remember my wedding day being over in what seemed like minutes! You have planned for months and months, maybe even years for your big day! You have planned everything to the last […]

To My Brides | When Your Day Doesn’t Go as Planned

Last week, I saw a new story from the Today Show and the Rossen Reports on the wedding industry and how much more we charge. He compared a birthday party pricing to a wedding and called the price difference the “wedding mark up.” As I watched this video, I sat there shaking my head at […]
