  • Where are you based & how far will you travel?
    I'm based in Eagle River, Alaska (right outside of Anchorage), but I'm available to travel anywhere your project takes me! My main service area covers the entirety of the Municipality of Anchorage & part of the Matanuska-Susitna Borough. Generally speaking, that includes any locations within 25 mi. of Eagle River. However, I regularly work with clients across Alaska, and I'm always willing to explore new locations for exciting opportunities. Whether you're planning an intimate elopement on the mountainside, a rooftop wedding in the city, or a destination shoot on a glacier, I'm happy to discuss your needs while working together to bring your ideas to life, no matter where it takes us. I have yet to have the opportunity to travel specifically for a session or wedding outside of Alaska, but I'd be more than willing to entertain it! Would you like to be my first? 🤗

  • How do I book a session with you?
    Whether you're ready to pick a date now, or just browsing around for the right photographer for you, you can start by heading over to my "Contact" tab & filling out this contact form to tell me a bit about what you're looking for. From there, I'll follow up with you via your requested response method to discuss details. After choosing the right package for you, we'll determine the best date & location for the session. When you decide you would like to move forward with securing your date, I'll create an agreement for you to review & sign. To fully secure your date, a non-refundable retainer fee (amount varies based on chosen package) is required. Bookings are made on a first come, first served basis, so a date is not booked until I’ve received the contract and the retainer.
  • How do I book you to photograph my wedding or elopement?
    Start by heading over to my "Contact" tab & filling out this contact form to give me some details about you & your partner, & to share any other info you'd like to tell me. From there, I'll follow up with you via your requested response method to find a good time for us to either meet in person or over video chat. Finding a good fit is crucial for the type of natural, intimate images that I create, so I like to get to know all of my wedding and elopement couples personally! This will give me a chance to figure out exactly what you are looking for in a wedding photographer, as well as give you the chance to ask any questions you may have. Once you've decided that I'm the gal you trust to capture your special day, we'll nail down the final details so I can create an agreement for you both to review & sign, which I read through together with my couples to explain all the legalese in easy-to-understand terms. To fully secure your date, a non-refundable retainer fee (amount varies based on package) is required. Bookings are made on a first come, first served basis, so a date is not booked until I’ve received the contract and the retainer.
