When is the best time to shoot?
For wedding days I work hand in hand with each couple on a schedule and locations to ensure their photos are the best they can be. I try to take each couple out during sunset, this may happen before, during or after dinner. (trust me it’s worth it!)
For all sessions I love to shoot about 1-2 hours before sunset, as I am a natural light photographer this gives beautiful even and dreamy light as to which what my portfolio images are filled with.
How do we reserve you for our session or wedding?
To book your wedding date you must put $750 down with a signed contract. All collections do not include Wisconsin’s 5.5% tax. I highly suggest booking and sending payment as soon as you feel that connection with me and my photography, I only hold the date for 3 days before contract is signed.
To reserve your lifestyle session, full payment with signed contract is due at the time of booking.
When do you typically start and end a wedding day?
Justin and I arrive 2 hours before the ceremony for getting ready, first looks and details before the guests get there – and we are typically done 2 hours after dinner time to capture all your rad dance moves!
We work closely with each couple to ensure enough time to capture everything with a stress free timeline.
Do you have insurance?
I do, for both my gear and liability on location.

I am part of an amazing online group filled with 100 of the best photographers in Wisconsin – every weekend we have an emergency thread of open photographers. If something may happen to me, those close to me know where to go to get your wedding day covered.
We do our best to leave with plenty of time to ensure we are there on time, out of state weddings we leave the day before just in case of delayed or cancelled flight.
