My Approach to Elopement Photography

On your wedding day, I will be there to photograph the special moments between you and the love of your life. I will document all of the emotions, the fun, and the excitement of this celebration so that you can share it with others or simply relive it, just the two of you.

I am dedicated to immortalizing the beauty and the emotion of each client’s wedding day, because the natural emotions that emerge on your wedding day far exceed any of the “perfection” touted by wedding magazines and blogs.



Working with me

Most of my clients have never hired a professional photographer, so I would love to give you an overview of the process as you are doing your research.

Contact Me

Please fill out the contact form or pick up the phone! I'd love to get the ball rolling by hearing more about your plans, checking our availability for your wedding date, and setting up a time to talk if you'd like to discuss it all.

I live in Northern Virginia and photograph elopements in the DC area. Please click here for my rates.

Then What?

Once you’ve decided that I am the perfect photographer for your event, you’ll tell me exactly what you need so we can book your wedding date immediately via our digital client portal. It's easy and quick.

Pre-planning

I would love to go over your plans with you before the event. We will work together to finalize a timeline that will allow plenty of time for the photography you want as efficiently as possible. Once I know more about your day I would be happy to make recommendations.

Wedding Day

On your big day, I will be there to document it! I do all I can to be a calming presence to help you feel relaxed and have a wonderful time.

Delivering Your Images

It's hard to wait for your wedding photos when you desperately want to see them. But good quality work takes time, and I edit all the images by hand. Within 14 days of your wedding you’ll receive your online gallery of edited images. Share them with family and friends! All clients receive the high resolution files.


The day passes so quickly, and it's so easy to miss things or forget certain events. Fantastic elopement photography is what you allows you to relive the moments for years to come.

I always urge my clients to focus first on hiring the best wedding photographer they can, because the images themselves will endure. I pride myself on providing timeless images that my clients and their families will cherish forever.

Still have questions? I'd love to hear from you.
