PHILOSOPHY

I feel so lucky to be able to do what I do and I love to help couples make their wedding day as stress-free and easy as possible, especially when it comes to photography. My goal is to capture your day as it unfolds – the real emotions and special moments – with minimal interruptions and in a way that is beautiful, timeless and FUN! I use a mix of gently guided portraits to capture your natural interactions with each other, as well as a keep eye for the candid, little moments throughout your day to deliver a gallery full of emotion and beautiful images that you'll cherish forever. 

THE

WEDDINGS & ENGAGEMENTS

I love to chat with my couples on a call before booking so I can learn all about them and their wedding day - how they met, got engaged, what they love to do as a couple together and what they envision for their wedding day. We also spend this time chatting through my process on a wedding day, asking and answering any questions, and getting to know each other better so we know if we're a good fit!

we chat

If we're a good fit for each other, I'll send you a contract to review, then you send me a deposit to hold your date, and we are officially official! Through your entire engagement I will available to answer questions - whether it's recommendations for other vendors, timeline questions, or general wedding day advice, I am always happy to share what I've learned throughout my wedding career (which includes photographing over one hundred weddings since 2013!)

You book

I love doing engagement session with my couples because it's another opportunity for us to get to know each other before your big day. Engagement sessions are usually 1.5-2 hours and we'll spend that time exploring different spots at the location you choose. I love to make my couples at ease by playing some games, walking and talking, and making the whole experience as easy and fun as possible!

Engagement Session

I'll check in about two months before your wedding to see how everything is coming together. I ask my couples to fill out a questionnaire that will give me all of the information I need for the wedding day, and I work with your planner to create a seamless day for you. 

Wedding Prep

It's finally here! Your wedding day! I like to start your wedding day by photographing your wedding details and you getting ready, and then usually like to stay for an least a half an hour of dancing or until you cut your cake. This gives me enough time to document the most important parts of your day and create a complete, beautiful gallery that will capture all of your favorite moments. 

The Wedding Day

I know how hard it is to wait for your photos, so I share a big sneak peek with you within a few days of your wedding! This will hopefully hold you over until your final gallery is delivered eight weeks after your wedding (or sooner!) You will have lifetime access to this gallery, where you can come back year after year to relive your day, order prints through the store, and share will all your friends and family.

After the wedding

Just because the gallery is delivered doesn't mean we have to stop being friends. I love to document all the moments of my couples' lives - from anniversary sessions, to maternity and newborn sessions, to annual holiday photos and family sessions year after year. I feel so lucky to help my couples celebrate all the adventures of married life, and love documenting growing families and special occasions.

LEARN MORE ABOUT THE

"Working with Anna was one of our best decisions during our vendor selection process!"

Rachel & Yoni

Besides her photography talent and skills, Anna's positive, always-smiling energy is exactly what we needed to calm our nerves on our big day. Anna's extremely passionate about capturing your special day and cares tremendously about the couple she's working with and was genuinely interested in making sure we have beautiful images that chronicle all the events of the day…Working with Anna was one of our best decisions during our vendor selection process! We now forever have an amazing way to remember the best day of our lives!

"We LOVED Anna!"

Jessica & Alejandro

I cannot express how delightful it was working with her and how happy we are with our photographs. She was somehow everywhere at once capturing all the important moments. I loved that from the get-go Anna had great advise to offer and shared lovely details about her own wedding and experiences. She took time to really try to understand the feelings and emotions we were looking for on the day and she captured it better than we could have imagined. 

"Simply said, she is magical. "

katie & jim

Anna made the entire process fun, comfortable, and a total adventure. Her unique ability to capture a balance between nature and her couples is unparalleled. She completely understood us as a couple, and was always looking for an adventure to bring us on, thus making her shoots comfortable, fun, and unique.  On our wedding day, I actually cried when she showed up to the venue, because I was so excited to see her and knew that as our friend, she would be able to comfort us during our first look and photos. All of our guests also fell in love with her personality immediately. She is the best investment in your forever memories that you can make. We are sad for many reasons that our wedding is over, and one of them is that our time with her (until our next life event) has finished!

"Anna was the BEST!"

Rachel & Nick

Anna was the best! She made everyone feel comfortable, was organized, and made the day go by without a hitch. Her photos turned out absolutely stunning and her personality is so warm and bubbly it really made us feel like we could be ourselves, which translated to beautiful photos! 

“Anna is simply incredible! 

Victoria & Tavner

She is warm and outgoing, a total sweetheart. Anna got fantastic shots and had a great eye for backgrounds and lighting - the photos are wonderful. I was so happy when I got the pictures back to see how many amazing shots she got of all the decor elements I had poured my heart into, while still getting great pictures of our guests and all the action. It was like she was in five places at once (Anna is actually a magician).

“Anna is beyond crazy talented!"  

Melissa & Trevor

You made the process so easy and relaxed and I cannot begin to express how at ease we both felt. You are such a warm and thoughtful person and it really shows in your work. Your eye is exceptional and the light is magical. The photos are more beautiful than I could ever imagine. My family and mother in law cannot stop raving about how poise, professional, and talented you are and how much the love all the photos.

"You are amazing!"

McKenzie & Ben

Our families, bridal party, friends, everyone could NOT stop talking about how amazing, precious & impressive you were! I’ve been in several weddings and no photographer has ever been such a perfect balance of personable, creative and efficient.
