Weddings can be a LOT, but I'm here to help you! You do this deal once, I do it all the time. The last thing a bride should be worried about is a timeline. I don’t believe in forcing moments, but I do believe in creating spaces for moments to happen. I’ll use my expertise and your authenticity to help you plan a wedding day that feels easy.

Information

I'm here to help

Whether it's an engagement session or your wedding, my goal is to capture YOU! The most common thing I hear before a session starts is, "we're so awkward!" I love to prove you wrong when I deliver your gallery. I do this by using movement instead of poses. I use prompts to get you to interact and get moving with your partner. This not only allows for candid photos but space for your emotions and laughter to come out.  Of course I'll be sure to grab a few traditional smiling/quiet photos but this is my secret to making you feel comfortable.

I want to document the real you...

I'm here to help

I know planning a wedding comes with a ton of stress and decisions; I hope to make the decision of which photographer to use an easy one. You should hire a photographer who makes you feel comfortable above all else. Your wedding photographer is the only person that is with you the entire day! I'll be the first to admit that I am not going to the perfect fit for everyone, but I want to be for YOU.

Your wedding images are the only thing that doesn't fade away after your wedding. Your flowers die, your dress gets hung up, but your photos are your legacy. They are what you will share with your family and friends, and what you will look back on when you want to be reminded of you day. I want you to view your photography investment as your legacy.

You made us both feel comfortable from the very start. We are not "picture takers", so I was nervous about taking them, but you made it like a fun date, posed us perfectly, and encouraged us throughout the shoot, which helped a ton!!" The locations we went too were so perfect, I would have never thought to do there. I appreciate you and love our photos so much, THANK YOU!

A planner, photographer, & friend

We won a giveaway for a free session with her and man did we hit the jackpot. Rachel was AMAZING! I'm not going to lie, I was pretty nervous. As soon as we met up with Rachel we left at ease. There was no awkward poses. We literally laughed the ENTIRE time with her. She captured us being ourselves and really showcased our love as cheesy as it sounds. We loved her so much and I made such an amazing connection with her we booked her as soon as we had our date!

We hit the Jackpot!

Comfortable from the very start

Excited to book me. I get that there are a ton of photographers in Pittsburgh that could provide beautiful images but my ideal client is someone that is excited to work with ME and not just receive "my style" of photos!

Down to have a good time and trust me when I say "wait, can you sit in that hydrangea bush". I get some crazy ideas and visions when we're shooting together but if you just trust me, I promise you'll love the outcome! (don't worry, I bring music and we'll dance it out)

Ready to receive a ton of resources needed to make your day a success. My process ensures you are given everything you need to know to have the best experience. From sending guides, vendor recs, and questionnaires, you will feel valued and understood and ready to go!

We're a good fit if you are...

Of course! The largest part of my experience is all of the resources and guides I provide. Upon booking you'll receive a wedding guide with 2 pages of vendor recommendations, things to consider when getting ready and lots of pro tips. You'll also receive a custom timeline based on your needs/wants.

Do you help with the planning process?

I don’t like to put a maximum on deliverables because I always over deliver and can never choose a set amount! After removing the repeats and blurred photos, you can expect about 75 to 100 for engagement sessions, 300 to 400 for elopements, and about 85-125 photos/hr for weddings. (varies depending on coverage, travel time to locations, etc).

How many photos will we receive?

Always!! Although most of my weddings take place in PA, I am willing to travel anywhere! Travel fees are included in the customized quote, and based on standard airfare rate + 2 nights lodging accommodations (3 for international). Custom quotes available upon inquiry! 

Do you travel?

Yes! A flat $800 is required for weddings at signing with the remaining balance due a month before your big day. You are allowed to make payments as frequently or infrequently as needed up until the month before if you want!

Do you offer payment plans?

FAQs

Nope - when you book with me you are paying for not only my expertise and the session but my editing! I cull through the photos to remove repeats, eye blinks, blur, etc and choose the best photos for you!

Can we get the RAW unedited photos?

For sessions there is a 15% rescheduling fee of the total invoice and a day of cancellation results in no refund or applying toward your new date. For weddings, the non-refundable retainer is just that, and an $800 fee will be applied to reschedules.

What if we need to cancel or reschedule?

A contract and retainer are required to reserve your date! Contracts are strictly between the couple and myself, regardless of who is paying for services. 

Do we have to sign a contract?

For sessions you can expect a sneak peak within 48 hours and your gallery within 3-4 weeks. For weddings, sneak peaks will be posted within a week and full galleries will be delivered between 7 to 9 weeks!

What is your turnaround time?

FAQs

As soon as your contract is signed, I will send over a wedding guide that is PACKED with good tips and things to keep in mind. It covers first looks, sample timelines, things to consider for your getting ready space and so much more! 6 Months out from your wedding I will send your a questionnaire to help prepare a custom timeline that captures everything that is important to you! This will be created in Google Docs so we can make changes together!

Prep & Prepare

Your wedding day will be here before you know it! But don't worry we will be fully prepared and I will check in the week of to make sure you are all set! I will show up SO excited and ready for your day! My goal is to make this as relaxed and enjoyable as possible for you!

shoot your session

Once you inquiry through my contact form, I will respond within 24-48 hours (normally embarrassingly quick). With my response, I will let you know if I am available, and if I am I will send over my complete Pricing & Services guide! This will walk you through packages, a la carte items, and some common FAQ. If all looks good, I will need a signed contract and an $800 retainer to officially hold your date! If you have some further questions, I'd be happy to hop on a call or FT to talk through them!

Online gallery delivery

Prior to your full gallery being delivered (about 6-8 weeks) I will post and send a sneak peak because I just am too excited! When your gallery is delivered, I will also send a proposal to order an Heirloom Album that is custom to you!
