Here’s the truth

Trying to plan an elaborate wedding can make the whole experience feel less like a celebration and more like an operation. But if you’re here now, you know …

It doesn’t have to be.

 

When you get rid of the one-size-fits-all event centers and the insane schedules and the crowds of guests you barely know … the stress disappears. The meaning of the day comes into focus.

 

The practice of intention creates space for happiness and gratitude for what we already have. It’s not necessarily about removal, but instead cleansing your life of the distractions that don’t resonate with you to make room for a loving, warm, deeply personal day.

 

These are the memories that will last, just like the life you’re building together.

Okay, but what does simplicity and intention look like for my wedding?

I hear you. Let’s lay it out.

One of the most important things we can do is get to 

know each other. I care deeply about making sure you feel seen and heard throughout the planning process.

 

One of the ways I help you plan with a minimalist approach is by sharing my book, Simply Wed. Alongside practical tips for creating your wedding day and location inspiration, I also include ideas for adding meaning, the different types of commitments, and language to use when you’re talking to family about your unique wedding.

Before

Over the course of your wedding day, I’ll document candid moments, meaningful details, and relaxed portraits.

 

By using easy prompts during portraits, I’m able to elicit natural movement and genuine emotion. I want to capture who you are, so you can always recognize the warmth of love and joy when you look back on your photography.

 

My approach is to give you space to celebrate with those you love. I’m not in the middle of your moment, but you can trust that I’m nearby capturing it.

During

Simplicity does not mean sparse or cheap. I pour my craft and energy into your photography, and that includes editing your images with a keen eye.

 

And because I firmly believe that minimalism is about intentionally choosing items made to last, I put care into offering high-quality, heirloom albums for my couples. Each album I create is an object with meaning—beautifully crafted, thoughtfully curated, wonderfully real.

The freedom to create the day you want

 

I’m notarized in the state of Maine to sign your marriage license. That means you can self-solemnize or have anyone lead you in your vows. It’s one more way I work to make sure you have absolute freedom to make this day your own.

I’m selective about who I work with

but I love the opportunity to talk with every couple and see if we’ll be a good fit.
