Hey there, sweet bride! Congratulations on your engagement! I am genuinely so excited to get to know you, hear your love story, and see what incredible plans you have for your wedding day, and more importantly, your lives together! My favorite part about my job is getting to meet so many incredible people!

I accept a limited number of Colorado and Destination weddings each year to ensure each of my couples get the dedication and undivided attention they deserve. Scroll down to learn more about what being an MSP couple is like!

Let's  get  to know each other!

step 1.

MSP brides have been looking forward to their wedding day since they were little girls! You've probably got ideas flying left and right and I want to hear them all! You're excited for this day (as you should be) and so am I! Our first step in the planning process is getting to know each other to make sure we're a good fit! I work hard to find the couples that I know are going to mesh well with me and my Colorado and destination wedding photography style. This ensures that at the end of all of this you are over the moon with your photos and your experience with me. So let's grab coffee or a glass of wine and get to know each other!

Making it official!

step 2.

Now that we've gotten to know each other and you've decided that I'm the one for you we need to make it official! I need a signed contract and retainer to hold your date and then we are all set! I'll walk you through every step of the formalities to ensure you understand exactly what it is your signing. I try to make the process as stress free and easy as possible, so we can get on to the fun stuff!

your engagement session!

step 3.

It's time to play!! Engagement sessions are my favorite! I love getting to spend this time with you to get to know you even better and capture some fun memories for you! Before the session I'll get you all prepped with my style guide to help pick out the perfect outfit and we'll find that just right location for your session too! When the session time rolls around, treat it like a date night! You're getting all dolled up anyway, so why not make some fun plans afterward?! We'll spend about an hour together at your session, typically right around sunset to get that dreamy evening light!

All those details

step 4.

Our next step is to get together all the details of your big day! Usually I like to do this around 45-30 days out from the wedding, so all the little things are finalized and we can start putting together a timeline of what your wedding day will look like. I can walk you through all of this to ensure we have enough time to capture all those important moments that happen throughout the day. We'll also get together a shot list so I know which family photo groupings you'd like and any other photos that are super important to you!

Time to get married!

step 5.

This is the best step by far! By now, we should have gone over everything I need to make sure I can smoothly capture your day from start to finish! There's bound to be a hiccup or two, but whatever happens we'll make sure to work around it and get those photos you've been dreaming of! So today your only concern should be enjoying every second of getting married to the love of your life!
