Fast Turnaround Time: I literally can't hold in my excitement so you can imagine that I get right to editing your photos and can't wait to hand them over to you! Plus, I am all about being efficient & follow a strict workflow to ensure all my clients receive their images in a timely manner!

The SAP Experience: I believe in spoiling my clients and doing whatever I can to go above and beyond! I hand package every item, customize every album page myself, create personalized mood boards for every session, and draft timelines for all my weddings. I can promise you that I do a lot of research to provide affordable pricing without sacrificing quality of services and goods. 

Consistent, Artistic Editing: I have spent years mastering my bright and airy style. I invest in top of the line tools and have crafted my own presets over the years to create consistent organic imagery. I'm not someone who selects all the photos, hits the filter button, and charges you a ton. I spend time editing each and every photograph so you will never find discolored teeth or a blemish left.

from meeting to delivery

Let's chat over the phone or meet up in person at a local coffee shop to figure out what you want out of your wedding photographer, answer any questions you might have, and see if we are a match made in heaven! 

initial meeting

First thing's first, we will call you & get your dates booked. This includes your wedding day and any other events you want us to be at like your rehearsal dinner! We can also schedule your engagement session, bridal session, or boudoir session at this time. We kindly ask for a retainer fee the day of booking to reserve our services. This payment will go towards the total cost.Within a few days of booking, you will receive your welcome packet in the mail or you can opt for an online version if that suits your fancy! This packet will be filled with questionnaires to get to know you better, tips to get the most out of us, a custom made wedding day timeline, image gallery details, and any other essential paperwork needed to make your experience run as smoothly as possible! Once the contract has been signed & retainer fee has been collected, we are officially yours! Yay! 

Booking & welcome packet

To say thank you for picking our business, we like to send our clients a little welcome package! We call it a "bride box," and it is filled with goodies for our lovely bride. We want you to know just how amazing you are, and that you deserve to be spoiled! Each bride box is special and filled with items that we hand picked for our unique couple in mind. Once again, we are so thankful and beyond honored you picked us for your special day! So, please, take this as a token of our appreciation. Below you will find a few of our bride boxes that we have put together for our lovely clients.


the bride box

You may be thinking, "do I need this?!" The answer is YES! Trust us, you do not want to miss a single opportunity to celebrate your new life together. It is no small feat finding your other half, so it should be recognized. Our clients LOVE this day! It is SO much fun- (And that goes for all of our session options) For those who are unsure what all these options mean, we include a session guide outlined in your welcome packet. Plus, we are here to walk you through helping you decide. Once you have decided, we will set a location based on your style as a couple. From downtown to country to sandy beaches, we know all the good places! We will even share styling tips for finding outfits. After the session, you will find a sneak peek on social media and your photos will be delivered to you within a week! Fast, right?!

engagement/bridal/boudoir sessions

A week before your wedding, we like to scope out your wedding venue and plan for the perfect shots so that way there are no surprises. We really value the investment our clients make when booking with us and want to make sure that everything is perfect for their big day!

venue visit

Yippee! It's finally here! You're getting married! We know how crazy busy you will be the day of, so a couple of days before we will send you a link to pay the remaining balance. Then, on your wedding day you can expect us to arrive thirty minutes before your booked hours (for free!) to set up our equipment, and check in with you and your coordinator to go over the itinerary for the day and make any changes. Plus, this gives us time to gather your invitations, rings, ring box, shoes, and other items we need for our detail shots. Tip! Use the bride box we gave you to store all your detail items. We make sure to give you a box that is large enough to hold your items so that way they are all in one place, organized, and ready for us to capture!

Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHY?

Lifestyle photography includes family, newborns, maternity, and seniors. They are the everyday portraits that capture real-life events, milestones, and other aspects of your wonderful life!
 
WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?

Great question! When you book with us (no matter the type of session), you will receive our exclusive session planning guide. It will discuss all the fun details that revolve around prepping for your session, including the outfits you choose! We love helping our clients pick their outfits and we will totally be there via text if you're looking for a thumbs up or thumbs down to an outfit. Just text us a picture and we will let you know what we think!

WHY DON’T YOU RELEASE ALL OF THE PHOTOS YOU TAKE?

During your session you will feel like I am taking thousands of pictures because you will hear my camera shutter go off every second. Sometimes, I am testing out my camera settings to make sure I am ready for the upcoming shot. This is because I shoot in Manual mode which means that I have to account for any changes in lighting, focus, and other important factors, on my own. Sometimes I shoot in action mode which lets me capture photos at a high rate for images that involve a lot of movement, like when my seniors are jumping with their cap and gown. I want to make sure I don't miss the perfect moment! Simply put, there's extra "eh" in there because I would rather capture everything and anything, as long as I get to deliver the best set of images to you!

DO YOU EDIT YOUR PHOTOS?
 
Absolutely! It's one of the main reasons clients come to us for their photos. We have a signature bright and airy feel to our images that we put a lot of work into mastering. It involves not only post-processing, but also the way we set up our camera on the day of your session. Interested in learning how to edit and take pictures like we do? Head to our mentoring page to learn about what we can offer to fellow creatives.

IS STUDIO PHOTOGRAPHY AVAILABLE?

Yes! We have a wonderful studio we work with. They have fabulous lighting throughout the day. We love doing our boudoir sessions there along with headshots, bridals, and any branding work we are doing for fellow creatives!

WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY PHOTOS?

For lifestyle photos, they will be ready within 2-3 weeks. For wedding photos, please allow for 6-8 weeks. We usually wrap up galleries quickly but we just like to give ourselves some extra time especially when we are in our busy seasons!

WHAT TIME OF DAY SHOULD WE SCHEDULE THE SHOOT?

I schedule all my sessions a few hours before the sun goes down. In the photography world, it's called "Golden Hour."

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE LOCATIONS TO SHOOT?

I will go wherever you want me to go! Want to take a day trip to the Texas Hill Country? I am so down! I have a collection of photography locations that I will recommend or you tell me your location limitations (if any) and I will let you know the options for your requested location.

WHAT IF I NEED TO RESCHEDULE MY APPOINTMENT?

No worries, we get it! Life happens. Just let us know within the time frame specified in your contract. If you're running late to your session, call us immediately and see if we can push your session later or to another date. 

WHAT IF I NEED TO CANCEL MY APPOINTMENT?

Oh no! That's so sad! Are you sure we can't reschedule at another time? We hate to see you go, but, if you absolutely must, we understand. However, please know that the retainer is non-refundable for instances like this. We are committed to our clients so when you say you want the third of June at 4 pm, then that's what you get and we will be there. That means that we don't accept other clients during the time you have our services. So when you cancel, we not only miss out on a fabulous session we've spent weeks prepping for, but now that time is lost when we could have opened that up to someone else who is interested. All we ask is that you (pretty please) let us know ahead of time.

WHAT PRODUCTS DO YOU OFFER?

Oh my gosh, just way too many! We are all about style and providing our clients with classy, high-quality products. We have invested so much time in finding the perfect vendors to match our style and to provide our clients with high quality products that will last them a lifetime. When you get our welcome packet, there will be a product menu that will list our products and their prices. We also set up shops for every image gallery we send out so if you or your guests want to purchase prints, gallery wraps, or canvases, you can do that straight from your phone and it will deliver to your doorstep within a week! All of our wedding collections include a rose gold USB delivered in a handmade, cream colored muslin pouch. We understand the importance of photographs serving as memorabilia for generations to come so we have glass and linen boxes for safekeeping and albums for a collection of your images. 

WHY DO YOU RECOMMEND THAT I PRINT THROUGH YOU?

Don't get me wrong, I love a good Walgreens photo run, but the quality of everyday drug store printers is very poor. They will scratch and fade and won't last very long. You've spent so much time, effort, and money on your photos, why let that all go to waste? Especially, if you don't get the chance to have your products last for years and be passed down to your children, and so on. 

DO YOU SHOOT EVENTS?

Yes! Please contact us with more information regarding your event & we will provide you with a custom quote. We provide hourly services for our events with one photographer (Sara), unless it's a rehearsal dinner, then there will be two photographers. 

thank you!

you'll hear from me shortly.
