Small Events

weddings and engagements


I offer photography coverage for small weddings, small special events and surprise (or no surprise) engagements.


Your wedding day is an incredibly special day and is worthy of hiring a photographer whose style you love. Just like in my family sessions where I aim to make space for families to play in order to capture their love and raw emotion, as a wedding photographer I aim to capture the natural joy of the event as it’s happening rather than manufacturing the captured moments.


In my opinion, your wedding day shouldn’t be about getting all the perfectly posed shots. Rather, your photos should be about your day. My goal is that you spend less time posing and more time celebrating with loved ones.


My rate for small weddings (max 50 guests) and special events is $450 per hour with a 2-hour minimum. A 50% session retainer is due at the time of booking to lock in your date.


My rate for engagement sessions is $525 for a 45-60 minute session. A $150 session retainer is due at the time of booking to lock in your date. Session can also be paid in full at the time of booking for a 15% discount!

Pricing includes:


• photography coverage on-location on the day of your event.

• online gallery containing selected and artisan-edited high-resolution digital images delivered within 4-6 weeks of your event.

• mobile app containing your images for easy viewing and sharing on the go.

• it’s an all-inclusive package–no choosing your favorites! You get all the images in your gallery!


Because I am a natural-light photographer, I prefer to shoot outdoors or in well-lit indoor spaces during daylight hours. Also, I am only one photographer, so I can only shoot small events at this time.


I would love to chat with you about how I can beautifully capture your event with minimal posing and maximum easy-breeziness! To expedite our communication, please provide:
• your small event date

• approximate number of guests

• location – indoor or outdoor

• time of your event

• how many hours of coverage needed
