the top two priorities I have during the planning phase are:
crafting a timeline that gets you the most bang for your buck &
finding photo locations that fit your unique style

Hey there! Thanks for taking a moment to stop by! I know that planning a wedding, no matter the size or style, is a lot of work. Finding good vendors, managing your budget, knowing how and when to make certain decisions...none of it is easy! And to add to the pressure, there are a lot of mistakes you can make during the planning process that ultimately will have a negative impact on your photo experience.

Not on my watch!

I'll help you avoid those mistakes so that you can get the same style of images that first drew you to my work! From timelines to style tips; from vendor connections to location suggestions, I've got you covered! 

Here's what you can expect from the second you inquire through gallery delivery!

The Process

Head over to my contact page and send a note so we can get the conversation started! You can expect my response by the next business day!

Fill out that contact form





If I'm available for your date, I'll walk you through pricing options and my process. If I'm unavailable, I'll ugly cry for a few minutes and then respond to you with some referrals :)

If all that sounds like a fit, the first step is setting up a phone consult. I'll get an idea of your plans and walk you through a rough timeline that would get you the coverage you want.

If you're feeling good and want to keep moving forward in the process, the next step is a face to face meeting. This is to give us all a chance to make sure we mesh personally. SO IMPORTANT.

In person meeting


If we all feel good about the partnership, we can move to booking. I'll schedule one final call to go through nitty gritty stuff like how I protect your images and then we can sign the dotted lines!



After we're official I'll be sending you a TON of resources to help you get the best photos possible. I'll continue to work with you on the timeline til we've got a plan (AND a rain plan)!



1 month prior to your wedding day I will do a walkthrough of your reception space and scout out portrait locations. We will also meet one last time to finalize timeline and other details.

Walkthrough & Consult


On your wedding day, don't you lift a finger! I'm there to execute the plan we discussed. I'll keep us on track with our timeline while capturing images to properly tell the story of your day. 

Wedding day


The fun is over, now you gotta wait :) But don't worry, you'll see plenty of sneak peeks during this time! Your edited, high res gallery will be in your inbox 4 weeks after your wedding date!

Post Production


Your wedding is over, you've received your gallery, our professional relationship is (sadly) over. But don't be strangers! I love keeping in touch with my clients over the years :) 

Let's stay friends!


I'm Southern-bred and Chicago-based, which means I know how to drive in the snow but I'm picky about my biscuits and fried chicken.

I love to travel but hate being a tourist. I watch Pixar movies more often than someone my age should and will never turn down a true crime documentary.

I'm an...ISTJ. Old soul. Broadway and board game nerd. Francophile. Chronic movie-sleeper. Obnoxious Auburn Football fan. Wannabe baker. Minimalist. Creature of habit. Lover of the mountains. Avid list-maker. And a Type A planner who dabbles with spontaneity.

The NJP Couple

NJP couples love classic elegance but aren't afraid to be slightly unconventional. They know that style and simplicity can co-exist. They choose timeless over trendy. They are a little bit old-school, and a little bit adventurous. And they find beauty in the small things in life. 

Sound like you? Let's get our chat on!
