Our experience with Grace was so amazing! Her ability to capture amazing moments is rooted in her talent of making the subjects of her photos feel comfortable and relaxed. She is incredibly accommodating when it comes to what you want but at the same time is very self sufficient and willing to run the show and direct where necessary. We could not be happier with both our engagement photos and the photos from our wedding!

When it comes to my style & what you can expect:

I keep all my sessions PLAYFUL. I want to bring out your natural reactions and expressions, while also giving you direction to feel confident and calm. I look for both soft, glowy light as well as unique highlights and shadows to play with. I capture a healthy balance of classic portraits and candid images to make up your gallery. I'll remove most basic imperfections and use some soft skin smoothing, but I am not a photographer who uses photoshop heavily. When I say authentic and natural - that's what I mean.

Professional photo touch ups are available at an additional cost if you're looking for that airbrushed look on your images.

Your images will be delivered in mostly true to life color, with some in black and white. You can expect natural greens, natural color saturation, and warmer, higher contrast images that pop and make you feel the emotions. I pride my work on being timeless, not trendy.

After every session, my couples are always texting me telling me how much FUN they had and how they were blown away with the ease of the experience.

I love hearing you tell your love story as we're shooting and finding the little things that set you apart - this is how we make the magic.
