LOVE, Clare

I am so excited that you are interested in choosing me to document your wedding! I believe in real moments and chasing sunsets. In the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. I believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come. 

I began capturing images from my little flip phone at the age of 17. The limited amount of images on a tiny phone back in the late 2000s, forced me to put my camera phone down and really observe the beauty in the world, and the people around us. Whenever I pick up my camera, I strive to create beautiful and emotional images that tell a story and showcase the beauty of both the people in the images and the world around them. 

GET TO KNOW THE PHOTOGRAPHER

welcome

She was absolutely amazing at capturing our adoption maternity shoot of our sweet little girls mom and us. We couldn't have asked for a better photographer! And she made the whole experience so welcoming! 

"WE COULDN'T HAVE ASKED FOR A BETTER PHOTOGRAPHER!" 

kind words

After photographing more than a handful of weddings over the past few years, I’ve found that we’re not the perfect fit for every couple. That’s why this process begins with a conversation. I want to hear everything—how you met, funny first date stories, and how y’all got engaged.

We’ll get to know one another, talk about the details of your day, answer any questions you might have about working with me and figure out if we’re the best fit for each other.

LET's CONNECT

I'm here as a resource beyond photography—whether you're looking for engagement session outfit recommendations, timeline advice, or vendor referrals.

Even if you're working with a wedding planner or you're planning a simple wedding, there are likely still a lot of moving pieces left leading up to your big day. I've photographed several weddings in the past few years and I'm happy to share everything I've learned along the way! 

Wedding Advice

I am a big fan of engagement sessions for a few reasons. Not only do they allow you to get comfortable in front of the camera, they also give you the opportunity to showcase your personalities in a more casual setting that is significant to the two of you. 

Engagement sessions can take place anywhere from immediately following a proposal to just a few days before the wedding. I’ve found that there isn’t a “good” or “bad” time to take your photos. I normally plan sessions based on a particular “look” a couple has in mind, spring flowers for example, or based on schedules. 

Engagement Session

I check-in about one to two months before the wedding to start chatting about timeline specifics, special details, family formal shot lists, special traditions and anything else I or my assistants/second shooters should know about your big day. 

While I normally don't send my questionnaire until closer to the wedding, please don't hesitate to let me know if you have questions during the planning process!

Wedding Day Prep

It's finally here! The day the two of you say "I Do" and dance the night away surrounded by your family and friends. 

Just know I'm excited to celebrate and capture your wedding day. It's going to be awesome.

The Big Day

You can expect your photos to be delivered via an online gallery within several weeks of your wedding. At that time, we'll also send over details about preserving your images through prints and albums. 

I hope the relationship doesn't end after I deliver your photographs. I want to hear about the adventures of married life. And if you decide to have kids, I'd love to document your growing family.

THE COLLECTIONS

One of the best ways to make your wedding memories last is by ordering an album. These high quality professionally designed albums come in a variety of linen & leather colors. These aren’t the same albums your parents wedding photos came in. They’re modern, lay perfectly flat and look incredible on coffee tables.

All albums must be prepaid before design begins. Albums typically take between 4 to 6 weeks to complete and include three rounds of revision. Albums may be ordered anytime before or after the wedding day.

ALBUMS

It takes time for most couples to warm up to being photographed and understand how we pose. Timelines can be pretty tight on wedding days and 30 minutes may be all we have for portraits - which is why I’ve found that wedding day portraits turn out so much better when couples do engagement sessions ahead of time.

Sessions also allow you to showcase your personalities in a more casual setting that is significant to the two of you (and even include pets!) While they’re great for save-the-dates, I've taken engagement photos anywhere from 18 months in advance to a few days before the wedding.

Engagement Sessions

Fantastic! To reserve your wedding date, I’ll need a completed contract and a 33% non-refundable deposit. If you don’t have a contract yet, just let me know and I’ll send one over! The remaining balance will be due 1 month before the wedding.

We love your work and we’re ready to book! What’s the next step?

Galleries typically include anywhere between 400 and 800 photos. The exact amount varies from wedding to wedding. Your online gallery will come loaded with fullyedited high resolution images you can print anywhere. You’re also welcome to share your wedding photos on Facebook as long as you credit me and link to my FB or website.

How many photos are typically included and can we print the photos ourselves?

I typically add travel fees on to any wedding outside of a 60 mile radius from my home in Festus, Missouri. Fees vary depending on location so ask me for more details.

When do you charge travel fees?
