When you chose to have an intimate wedding, you're choosing experience + intention over the pomp and circumstance of a large production wedding.
Intimate weddings are all about the emotions you experience, and handcrafting your wedding to be intentional. Choose meaning + memories over cookie cutter wedding days.
You love the messy, real parts of life.
You're ready to truly be yourself.
You're ready to make your day an experience.
You're ready to throw traditions + expectations out the damn window.
Of course, I'll be with you throughout your special day to document all the moments as they happen. Better yet, I'll be hella unobtrusive about it because you shouldn't be worrying about being photographed. I want you to be able to experience your wedding fully open, receptive to all the emotions, to be present in the moment with your partner.
Whether you're not quite sure where you want to have your ceremony or reception (or both!), or you need help finding some bombass vendors to help make your day even more amazing—I've gotchu. I'm here to guide you through the wedding planning process as much or as little as you'd like.
I've picked up a few things over the years that I've spent as a wedding photographer and I'm more than happy to share them all with you! You'll get unbridled access to the Client Lounge—a space exclusively for my couples—jam packed with guides, checklists, and more. I'm also available anytime for a more hands-on help!
No need to stress about finding an officiant for your wedding, ya girl has got you covered. I'm ordained and can either lead a small ceremony for you, or just sign your marriage license for you—whichever you prefer!
If you're wanting to take the non-traditional route, you open up endless possibilities. I'm here to help you fully prepare for your intimate wedding including:
- how to tell family + friends
- what to pack
- timeline crafting
- how to obtain permit(s)
Intimate weddings are for those who want a more authentic wedding experience involving 50 or fewer guests. You're the kind of couple that's about creating a wedding day in favor of feeling high vibes while keeping it low key.
I'll guide you through the wedding planning process, from vendor recommendations, to timeline crafting, I'm here in your corner.

Get in touch and this is one of the first things that we work on figuring out together. During your initial call with me, I will help you see what is possible for your day and begin developing custom collection options with you. I will always tell you to opt for full-day photography coverage because you deserve to have the entirety of your day documented, not just a portion of it. Trust me, you’ll thank me decades down the road when you flip back through the portraits that you had me with you for the whole day versus 4 hours.
This depends on a number of factors, but typically I deliver anywhere between 50-100 images per hour of shooting. No, you won’t get every single image that I take, but that’s because you don’t want the ones where someone is blinking, that are wrongly out of focus, or that I some how manage to take of the ground when I swap camera bodies.
It is seriously rare that I take on larger weddings as I have honed my expertise, skill, and artistic style for smaller celebrations. As an introvert, large gatherings bustling with people just aren’t my scene—we have to vibe on a truly deeper level for me to consider taking on any sort of large wedding.
Everyone defines it slightly differently, but for me an intimate wedding is a traditional-ish wedding with 50 or fewer guests. The main highlight of the intimate wedding is that they’re all about the emotions of the day as it unfolds and the bond the couple shares not only with each other, but with each of the guests in attendance.
If you’re ready to start the booking process, drop me a line via my CONTACT FORM!! Next, I’ll send over my pricing guide based on what kind of experience you’re looking for. We also set up a time to chat as I want to get to know you, your partner. Once we make sure we’re a good fit, and decide on which package you’d like, I will send over a contract for you to sign. After you’ve signed on the dotted line and paid the non-refundable retainer, you will be officially booked!! (The remaining balance is due 15 days prior to your wedding day. This can be broken up into smaller payments, or paid all at once—whichever is easiest for you!)
For intimate weddings + elopements within a 150 mile radius of Adams, NY I require a $1000 non-refundable retainer and a signed contract. For intimate weddings + elopements outside of the 150 mile radius I require a 50% non-refundable retainer. The remaining balance is due 15 days prior to your celebration date—you can pay the balance in full then, or break it up and pay it over time beforehand.
Intimate weddings + elopements have a turn around time of 2-3 weeks with a small sneak peek gallery available within 24 hours. Adventure sessions have a turn around time of 1-2 weeks.
I absolutely do! Get in touch and tell me all about your dream destination and I'll send over a customized set of packages that includes travel, lodging and meals—because I'll go wherever your love story is destined to go.
