Every couple has a unique love story and a unique vision for their dream wedding day! That's why I communicate with each couple that inquires with me to make sure that I am the perfect fit for your distinctive vision. After you fill out the contact form here on my site, you can expect me to respond asking to set up a brief phone or video call with you so we can chat about your needs.
I serve brides that appreciate enhanced, true-to-color and joyful photographs and who recognize that sometimes getting THE shot requires a little more creativity and adventure than your average photograph. My brides also know that they deserve the elevated experience that I focus on providing each of my clients.
Once we figure out if I will be the best photographer to capture your wedding day, then we will move through the boking process!

The stars are aligned and we've determined we were meant to be! Once we've decided I'm the right fit for you and we've talked about your unique needs for your wedding photography, I will send you a custom booking proposal where you can view your package and pay your deposit to finalize your booking with me! (Payment plans are also available!)
Woohoo! You're officially a TJP Bride and Groom! Now let's get started with the fun parts...
Up Next: Engagements
It's time for you to announce your engagement and send out wedding invitations, and we're going to get the perfect photos for your announcement! Once you're booked the next step is to plan your engagement session. Don't worry, I will make sure to prepare you for your session so that you and your fiancé will get beautiful photos AND have a fun time!
While some of my clients go into an engagement session with the mindset that they're "not very photogenic" or commonly that the groom "hates having his picture taken," I have never had one complaint after a session and my clients always leave smiling and surprised at how fun their session was with me!
I'll teach you how to pose and prompt you to move in different ways to get ultra-flattering and absolutely gorgeous shots of the two of you together! You don't have to stress about knowing how to pose, I've got you covered! You can just focus on your relationship with your soon-to-be spouse and how exciting and beautiful this time of life is with them!
Up Next: Final Details
About two weeks before your wedding day we will have one last phone call to finalize the timeline and shot list, along with any other special details, for your wedding day!
My couples value having beautiful portraits from their wedding day, and I know how to help you plan your timeline to make sure there is room in the day for capturing those portraits! Whether you want those magazine-worthy formal portraits, incredible family portraits, or portraits with your wonderful (and sometimes wild!) bridal party, I can help you plan your timeline so you will have these type of photographs of your very own! We will also finalize a shot list with any specific MUST HAVE photos you want to make sure I get for you on the big day.
It's SO important to plan a photography-friendly timeline for your big day!
Up Next: Your Wedding Day!
After months of planning and preparations, it's time for you to relax, celebrate, and enjoy your special day while I document the whole thing for you!
When I got married, my wedding day was absolutely perfect.... and a complete blur! Your wedding day will most likely be a beautiful blur as well, which is why I make sure to get not only the posed portraits, but all the candid moments in between as well so you can relive your wedding day for years to come!
After your wedding day, you can expect to see some of the highlights of the day featured on the TJP blog within one week of the wedding! My couples and their families are always so excited to see a recap of the day while you're still on a high from all the excitement, and probably on your honeymoon!
Up Next: Gallery, Prints, & Album Design
Depending on the package you booked, you will receive your fully edited gallery of wedding photos just a few short weeks after your wedding day! I truly pour my heart and soul into editing every single image to ensure you receive a premium product! Your images will be delivered to you via a unique online link. From there you can download high-resolution images (best for prints) as well as web-size images (best for posting online).
In addition to the digital files, I firmly believe that every one of my couples needs to have a tangible version of their wedding photos. Whether it be prints that hang on your wall for you and your house guests to enjoy each time you walk down the hall, or a beautiful linen album for you to keep on your side table for your future children to browse through, print is a must-have for every TJP couple!
This is why I have partnered with a premium printing lab that provides museum-grade prints that are guaranteed to last for many years, proving to be an incredible heirloom item to have and to hold in your family for generations to come! Once you've received your gallery of images, you will have the option to order prints in a variety of sizes as well as a custom-designed wedding album that I help you design and we customize to suit your taste.
