My personal mission is to make your wedding day as carefree as possible.
Consider me your bonus bridesmaid.
A FEW things I take care of to make sure your day is stress-free:
+Prior timeline planning
+Herding your family and wedding party so you don't have to
+2nd shooter so ALL your best angles are covered
+I make sure we have FUN taking pictures
When you shoot over that first email to me, we'll schedule a casual meeting. Emphasis on the casual! I do this for a few reasons:
1. I want you to be able to ask any questions you may have
2. It helps us both see if our personalities mesh well
3. I want you to feel comfortable with me during our session, and this first meeting is the first step!
Hopefully after our meeting, you'll fall immediately in love with me :) kidding mostly.
Whenever you DO feel ready to book, it's an EASY process to save your date.
1. Pay retainer (35%)
2. Sign contract
Date saved! Guaranteed!
Most of my collections include a complimentary engagement session! We'll schedule that after your date is saved.
I HIGHLY encourage ALL of my couples to do a sweetheart session.
1. They're just really fun and it'll get you even more excited to get married
2. Perfect way to get comfortable in front of my camera
3. Great way to personalize your save the dates or website
We will be meeting and chatting often to prepare for your big day. We will work together to create a photography timeline that ensures the best lighting and a stress-free day.
Ideal Timeline Example:
Getting Ready < Detail Shots < Bridals < First Look with Bride and Groom < Portraits with B&G < Ceremony < Family + Party < Reception < Send-off
This may sound cheesy, but honestly:
Sit back and enjoy the ride!!
Your hard work is over and now I've got it covered. I'll be right by your side all night.
After your wedding day, I'll be working hard to make sure I perfect your images. Within a week, I'll send over some sneak peeks so you can see how they're looking. My typical turnaround for your entire digital gallery is about 4 weeks.
In addition to the digital gallery, all my collections come with a custom keepsake box and USB that you can keep and treasure forever.
Now your forever starts. Enjoy that newlywed phase, enjoy your new forever. Your wedding photos will be a keepsake you can look back to in years to come, remembering the details and moments of your day that made it so special.
That's the value of photos.
They last forever, just like your love.
Meeting to Delivery
I could not say enough good things about Kennedy. It was two nights before my wedding when a photographer I had lined up cancelled on me. A friend of mine texted Kennedy and told her my situation. She called me and explained how she wanted to help. Through all of the stress that the other photographer brought, Kennedy made it all worth it. Not only is she so sweet, and talented, she CARES. Which was so important to me. She is so professional, quick to reply, and happy to help. Also, her pictures are perfection. Thank you Kennedy!!!

Kennedy is the sweetest and you can just tell she has a passion for what she does upon the initial meeting with her. Her ideas are so creative and she captures the most sincere and loving moments, almost like she freezes time in each photo! I don't think I've ever smiled so much before without having to force it -- It all just came naturally as my level of comfort was just perfect and I felt like I could really be myself. Even with my funny laugh! Thank you for everything Kennedy. We are literally obsessed with our photos.
Kennedy was the best! I loved getting to spend my wedding day with her. She was punctual and personable. Did I mention that she takes awesome photos?! She does great at getting to know you before your session and making sure she gets the styles and poses you want. Her professionalism and creative eye is great. I have made a true friend and will use her again.
Kennedy is such a down to earth girl. She works well with every personality and instantly can get a feel of the couple and can pull out their natural beauty so well. Her quality of photo is amazing and she really pays attention to detail. She's very quick to show sneak peeks. The experience with her just made us more excited for our big day.
Kennedy was extremely friendly and great to work with. I'm a pretty awkward person but she made me feel comfortable and put me at ease. I normally don't like how I look in photos, but she truly made me look better than I thought possible. If you want to look flawless, she's the perfect choice. Her prices are reasonable and she's amazing at what she does.
It's your big day. You want it to be perfect.
With so many options for photography out there, it's hard to know what you REALLY need.
I will create a customized collection based on your love story and your unique needs, but the following suggestions are just to help educate you on the norms for wedding day coverage.
IF YOU WANT PHOTOS FROM GETTING READY TO THE WHEN THE DANCING AT RECEPTION STARTS, YOU'LL NEED:
6-8 HOURS OF COVERAGE
if you want photos from getting ready all the way to your send-off, you'll need:
9-12 hours of coverage
do you want a traditional going-down-the-aisle groom-sees-bride for the first time photo?
If yes, You'll need a second shooter.
do you have a big family or a big wedding party?
or are the bride/groom portraits your #1 priority?
If yes, I strongly recommend doing a "first Look."
have you and your partner had professional photos taken together?
If not, you need an engagement session!
