ready to Jet off together?

Regardless of the season that you're in, and whether your babies are big, small or furry, this time in your life deserves to be captured by something other than your iPhone. Family sessions were born from past wedding couples asking us to document their growing families and now we just can't get enough!

We love creating photos to remind families that in spite of the fact that the car of their floor is covered in cereal, their laundry room looks like an episode of hoarders and mom and dad are in a permanent state of exhaustion, their love and their story are beautiful. 

So let's plan a day, pick a location that is meaningful to you and create a slew of images that will fill up the frames your walls for years to come. 

let's take this love on the road [or the water! or wherever it may go!]

Emily did the most amazing job for our engagement photos and wedding. Having someone who was as excited for the big day as us and focused on the shots we wanted was amazing. Emily cares deeply about her couples and made sure we were comfortable and hade fun the whole time. 10/10 would recommend to anyone!

From our very first meeting, Emily made us feel more like friends than clients. She is kind and friendly, and her passion and enthusiasm for photography and capturing the beauty of marriage are evident in every interaction. On our wedding day, it honestly felt like I had another friend in the room who just so happened to be in charge of taking all the pictures, too. As for the pictures, we could not have asked for better! They are absolutely beautiful and perfectly captured all of the precious moments and details from our special day.

Many exciting locations have certain restrictions or permits required of photographers. Many resorts only allow their exclusive network of photographers to work there, and other locations may have nondisclosure agreements that prohibit my use of images from the facility. If you are interested in having me photograph your wedding but you are unsure of the restrictions in place at your venue, feel free to put me in touch with your venue contact! I am happy to facilitate the details ahead of booking so there is no risk to you if I cannot photograph the wedding according to contractual restraints.


If my wedding destination requires special permits or licenses to allow you to work there, how will that get handled?


I'm glad you asked! I actually have a curated list of "Bucket List" locations I would love to work at. If you are getting married in any of those locations, I have a special offer to work with you at this dream destination. You can view details about the Bucket List Collection below, just keep scrolling! :) 


do you offer any deals for exotic / high-demand locations? 


With destination weddings, even more so than local weddings, the sooner is always the better! This allows me time to block out the multiple-day stay in my calendar from other weddings and begin to plan travel itineraries. To reserve your date, inquire today and we'll begin the process! I'll send a contract and invoice for a non-refundable retainer of $1000 + 10% to begin booking travel accommodations.


How far in advance should we book?


Each destination may vary, but couples can expect to have discussions with me about air/train fare, lodging, and other minor per diem costs. These may also need to be included for my second shooter if I do not have one in my network to provide who is local to your wedding destination.


what additional costs are factored into the destination experience?
