Celebrating your love

Whether you are documenting your engagement, celebrating an anniversary or just want some updated photos of your and your significant other, you're in the right spot!   It would be my privilege to capture the love and joy in your relationship.  

The first step in the process is to work together to select your ideal date! Once your date is selected, a signed contract and session fee of $250 secures your date on my calendar.

Given the beautiful colors and temperate weather, spring and fall are the busiest times of year for outdoor photos in West Virginia. If you’d like a session during one of those times (ESPECIALLY if you want a weekend spot), please get in touch as soon as possible!

Beautiful photographs can be made in any kind of weather, but I understand that there are some downsides to being photographed in the pouring rain or the freezing cold. I can and do reschedule sessions for inclement weather, but am also happy to use your home or one of my favorite indoor locations if sticking to the scheduled date is a priority.

QUESTIONS
frequently asked

What if I don't need my print credit? 

You are under no obligation to use your complimentary PRINT CREDIT, but it’s incorporated into your collection price and has no cash value therefore I am not able to give you a discount on your selected collection if you don't wish to use it.  You are welcome to use it to purchase additional digital images or gifts for family members.  

Will you pose us?

I have lots of easy poses and prompts that will keep you relaxed and having fun throughout your session.  

What should we wear?

I believe that simple, classic styles are best and will help provide a timeless look.  I recommend choosing a couple of complimentary colors and choose outfits that coordinate but are not overly matching.  It can be helpful to include layers and textures, and minimize patterns. 

MINI
What about a

What if I don't need a full session? 

There are lots of reasons you might be interested in an alternative to the full session.  Maybe your significant other isn't up for a full hour or even better you want to be able to book multiple sessions with me throughout the year.  I'm happy to offer a mini session any time.  They follow the same structure and collection process listed above, but with a shorter session time and a lower price point.
