I'll keep you hyped up all day while documenting every moment as it unfolds - forever proving your wedding day was just incredible as you've always dreamed.

The Emerald Tide Experience

work with us

With large families on both my parents' sides, I know how to get attention and organize large groups - family portraits don't have to take forever and you can get on to your party!

I'll be by your side all day, capturing each moment, big + small, exactly as it happened - exactly as you remember it.

When night hits and you're getting down on the dance floor with your favorite people, I'll be floating around finding the best dance moves, and maybe getting in there a little bit myself.

QUICK + EASY BOOKING PROCESS

DETAILED, BUT TO THE POINT QUESTIONNAIRES

CLIENT PORTAL ACCESS

Need to find an invoice or look back on the hours of coverage in our contract after booking? Access to your private Client Portal includes all our information, easy to find, all in one place - so you can quickly look back if ever needed.

It's important I get a little look into your love story and relationship. Learning what you love about each other, your favorite things to do together, what's most important to you - these are all things that will help us craft your engagement session, and later, the perfect plan for wedding day.

I know you're busy, so I won't waste your time. All forms, contracts, and invoices are in plain language and super easy to complete.

expert advice through wedding day

pre-wedding meeting

Every few months, I'll reach out to check-in via email and be sure everything is going well. The week of wedding day, we'll connect for a meeting to discuss final details one last time before the big day.

We'll go over your timeline and any updated plans since you've completed your timeline questionnaire. This will ensure we have a plan for your dream day so you can enjoy the night, your guests, and each other!

After five years experience photographing all types of weddings in many different states and even a few different countries, I'm here to help you with any questions that may come up during the planning process!

With my client newsletter, carefully curated vendor list, and exclusive Facebook support group, you'll be able to have the beautiful, stress-free wedding day you've always dreamed about.

YOUR OWN PERSONAL HYPE TEAM

READY FOR ANYTHING

my goal for your day

For you to have the most incredible photos of your most incredible day - but also to ensure you truly have the best day of your life from start to finish. I'll have you fed, hydrated (honestly, you don't want to get dizzy or regret that last cocktail if you forgot to eat), and dancing your way into marriage happy + healthy.

My five years of wedding experience has me ready for anything the day throws at me. Whether it be rain or snow, a forgotten dress, or a groomsman who forgot today was THE day (oops), I'll be there to help you remedy whatever hiccup presents itself and you'll never know there was one there to begin with.

Weddings truly are dear to my heart, and every single one is exciting for me, so it's no lie I'll be gushing over every detail and just how beautiful everyone looks the entire day. I'll be cheering you on from the end of the aisle and getting down with you on the dancefloor at the end of the night.

48 hour preview gallery

easy to use online gallery

affordable prints and products

I believe you should be able to display your gorgeous photos in your home or to give as gifts without making a huge investment. This is why I offer heirloom albums, luxury prints + products at affordable prices - so they can be cherished and enjoyed for years to come - instead of sitting on a usb in a drawer somewhere.

Share your photos with loved ones who couldn't make it, or those who want to share the incredible time they had, via your personal online gallery. You'll receive an email with a link so you + your guests can download, create favorites lists, and even easily order prints + other products.

Don't worry, you won't have to use blurry cellphone photos from a guest at your wedding to show the world how incredible your day truly was. I know you're excited to share - that's why you get a 48 hour preview gallery of your wedding day. The rest of your images are delivered to you within six weeks!

So, you're getting a photographer
