Preserving Wedding Day Memories

Great wedding photos should expertly preserve the best memories from your big day. Great photography doesn’t adapt to the latest trends¬†because wedding photographers exist to preserve memories so that they can be enjoyed for years to come.

When I work with brides and grooms to capture their weddings, I make it my goal to capture personal, important moments as they happen throughout the day. I take my responsibilities seriously, and I know that couples trust me with a lot when they ask me to be the one capturing family photos, bridal party memories, and some of their first moments together as a married couple.

Because of this, I work tirelessly to ensure that your highest expectations are exceeded.

Having a Rochester Wedding?

Rochester, MN is a great wedding destination. Whether you’re staying in town or coming into it, a little research has probably taught you that there are some great wedding venues around town – check out Mayowood Stone Barn or Studio 324 for starters!

But even with lots of great options and the potential for a beautiful day, planning a wedding can be stressful! If you’re considering me for your wedding, know that I’m happy to help as much as possible when you’re in the planning stages.

My Wedding Photography Packages

Some photographers offer a variety of wedding photography packages, I offer just one package. That way, you can enjoy the benefits of a premium package without paying the extravagant price.

In some cases, you may want someone to shoot for 6 hours. In other cases, you may want two photographers to stick around for 10 hours – in this case, you have up to 12 hours of coverage from 2 different photographers at your disposal.

Whatever your preference is, I like to think that I have a package for it. If not, I’m happy to discuss how we can set something up that works for you.

Stress-Free Wedding Planning

I absolutely love weddings! However, I know how stressful the days leading up to it can be. My goal is not to add to that stress in any way, shape, or form. Instead, I try to take away as much as is possible.

When you book me as your photographer, I happily take on a role in wedding day planning. I’ll help you to determine your schedule as it relates to photography. Whether you’re planning a wedding with a first look or a more traditional approach, I’ll be able to work within your wedding day framework to ensure that every necessary photo is captured beautifully.

When we plan out photos, you may decide that you want to do a little bit of exploration around Zumbro River or downtown Rochester to find the best photo destinations. Otherwise, you might decide that you prefer to do the photos all at one of the incredible venues in town. It’s your call – either way, I’ll help you to capture some of the moments you’ll never want to forget.
