The truly Moments Experience

About Elizabeth

I’m not just another photographer who can photograph a wedding. Many of us can do that beautifully, MY passion is to care for my couples as if you are my family and to tell your story as if you are my friend. I firmly believe it is a privilege to photograph one of the most important days in someone’s life. I want you to feel relaxed and beautiful so that you can relive the joy and happiness you felt when looking back at your photos.

My Philosophy

The truly Wedding Experience

My Philosophy

I’m sure your mind is RACING with all that needs to be planned, it’s very exciting but it can also be somewhat overwhelming. My goal as a wedding photographer is to make this part of the process simple. Photography is more than just images, it’s a real part of your day. Not only do you deserve beautiful images, but you also deserve an amazing photographic experience. When my couples feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera, that results in authentic, timeless images!

Your wedding day is an experience from beginning to end and your photography is a huge part of that experience… shouldn’t it be fun and stress-free? I think so! My goal is to not only capture memories for my clients, but it’s also to create an experience that they will never forget.

What Makes Me Different

Planner

I love to plan! In addition to being a photographer, I’m a certified project management professional, and what better project is there than planning a wedding? In the 14 years, I’ve been shooting weddings, I’ve seen it all and can share best practices.

INTO Details

You’re taking the time to pick out all the details of your day carefully, and it’s only fair they get photographed! No piece is too small to capture, so I take great care to understand what’s important to you. That way, I’m capturing your day just how you envision it! I’ll send you questionnaires throughout planning so I have ALL the details and I can photograph your day seamlessly.

Invested In you

I care about you and your day, and I want everything and more for you. Even when I’ve only met you a handful of times, I’ll still tear up during your vows. Your wedding is more than an 8hr job with a checklist for me. I value the memories I’m capturing for you.

The TRuly Moments Experience

My Process

One way I ensure that our couples enjoy the BEST photographic experience possible is through forming a relationship with our couples. A couple should connect with their photographer, trust their photographer and be EXCITED about the whole process with them! 

After booking, I love getting to know my clients through an engagement session which also helps couples warm up to the camera and get to know my working style. By the time the wedding day arrives, my clients and I feel more like friends and that creates a safe and relaxed environment for photography!

You may be wondering…

Once I have answered any questions you may have and you have decided that the Truly Moments Experience is exactly what you’re looking for on your wedding day, the next step is a booking proposal. I will create an online proposal that will allow you to customize your collection and then you can save your date by signing the agreement and paying your deposit online. Deposits are 35% of your collection.

Although you don’t HAVE to use your engagement session, these sessions benefit both me and you! I get to learn your quirks, like if someone relaxes on the third shot or blinks on the first. Most people don’t have photographers following them around all day and their last professional shoot might have been their senior portraits so this time allows you time to get comfortable being in front of a camera and me! Win-Win!

We average 75-100 images per hour that we’re shooting. We love delivering our client’s files quickly and easily via an online gallery.  You will have the ability to print, share and download your images as much as you want.  We believe in allowing couples to freely sharing our work because that is what we would want if we were in your shoes!  

We edit ALL of the images that we give you, not just the ones we show on our blog or the ones we love the most.

We like the natural light look but use flash to help create better quality images when necessary. Typically, if there isn’t a lot of natural light in indoor spaces we will use flash to mimic natural light.

We love being both interactive and discreet throughout the wedding day. There will be parts of the wedding day when I will need to be in control in order to accomplish everything that needs to be done while staying on schedule.  There will also be moments when you shouldn’t even know that I’m there. (The ceremony, during dances and toasts, etc.) We teach our couples how to pose, model, and interact during their engagement session so they are natural on the wedding day and don’t need quite as much instruction from us!   

Our editing style is natural and timeless and falls nicely in between “light and airy” and “dark and moody.” This will ensure that the editing style on your images don’t look dated in 20 years like the vintage-y filters available in the early 2010’s.

Yes! We understand that wedding photography is an investment that becomes even more priceless as time goes on. We offer splitting your investment up into 3 or 5 payments due before your wedding day.

This is a very common question and honestly unless I’m on my deathbed I’ll be at your wedding. In 14 years I have never cancelled on a couple because I understand what these moments mean.

But really what if I am on my deathbed, you say? Well, obviously I can’t control fate and if I’m able I will make phone calls to all of my photographer friends to have someone of similar experience cover your wedding. All attempts at levity aside, I shot a wedding during my husband’s kidney transplant. Despite my mother-in-law not being thrilled I was going to miss it, it was never an option to cancel on my couple.
