Not only can you have fun during family photos, I keep things moving and dynamic to make sure the kids have fun too (making photos more natural)

Those little toes don't stay little forever, and getting in the photo with your kids is SO important! Let me take care of those details you'll soon miss

Unsure about what scenery you're looking for or where to find it? I have tons of locations I prefer to shoot at that will give you beautiful results every time

the point is...i got you

ASAP! On average, sessions book 1-3 months out and weddings book 9-18 months out. But if you're under those timelines, don't hesitate to reach out -- I may have openings!

how far in advance do i need to book you?

For family/portrait sessions, turnaround is 2-3 weeks. Full wedding galleries are delivered within 8-10 weeks. The gallery is sent straight to your email and can be downloaded right to your computer.

how long will it take to get our photos delivered?

Sessions and weddings vary greatly based on time, events, locations, etc., and therefore there is no amount guaranteed. However, a typical portrait session yields at least 50 photos and for weddings, expect a minimum of 50 images per hour of coverage.

how many images can we expect?

Yes! After booking, you receive my wedding guide with sample timelines, and approximately six weeks prior to the wedding I work with you to create a solid, stress-free timeline for your day.

do you help with timeline planning?

YESSSSS! While hiring your cousin's friend with a camera for $300 may sound like a steal, hiring a non-professional is a dangerous game with such precious memories. Listen, it's not sexy, but finding a photographer who checks all of the legal boxes (insured, pays taxes, registered with the state, etc.) is SO important! *Steps off soapbox* I am a fully insured, tax-paying, registered LLC.

are you insured?

I retain copyright, but I do give print release with all family and wedding packages. If you want to go through my professional lab, I have a super easy ordering system through your gallery. 

Do we have printing rights of our photos?

I now reside just outside of Minneapolis, Minnesota. I still have family in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and visit/shoot there often.

I know you travel, but where is your home base?

After years of shooting weddings, my experience allows for me to work throughout a wedding day with the ability to capture everything without needing a specific shot list. However, I do welcome requests if you have anything special in mind!

do you work from a shot list?
