Choosing your wedding photographer is one of the biggest decisions of your wedding planning. Your wedding photos will be there after everything else. They'll allow you to relive the day for years to come. The flutter you had in your stomach when you saw each other for the first time, tears during your ceremony, emotional first dances, laughter during the toasts and the crazy dance moves at the reception.
To make sure you're getting the best photographer for you, the best possible photos, personal service, and a new friend, we meet to go over everything you need to know together.

A quick story about me:
Artist turned geochemist turned artist again. Since I was a kid, I have always had my art supplies and a camera close by. I have a box of photos and negatives from all the way back in elementary school. I borrowed my dad's 35mm camera in middle school and took a photography class as an elective. I kept his camera. At art school I documented everything with my camera. In college for geology, I took photography and art classes for fun. As a grad student, I turned to my camera and painting when I was dealing with serious hesitation about finishing a PhD in geology and I decided to turn my world upside down and go BE a photographer and artist. I found a local Albuquerque wedding photographer who would allow me to tag along to his weddings. I allowed myself to paint again. And here we are.
I spend the rest of my time painting, remodeling my fixer-upper house in Corrales, hiking and playing outside with the family, reading and playing video games with my boys, taking a million photos of my great dane and birds in our yard, and watching really geeky stuff on TV.
Frequently Asked Questions:
How long have you been a photographer?
Officially since 2013, though I photographed a handful of weddings and was a second for other photographers before that.
Are you insured?
Yes, I carry insurance and I can provide your venue with a certificate, as long as I have a heads up to get it ready.
What kind of gear do you use?
I'm a Nikon girl. I wear two cameras, bring a selection of lenses, and lighting tools.
How do you protect our images?
Each camera saves images to two cards, which are then saved to several locations, on site and in the cloud. Images are also archived for long term storage.
Do you photograph _____ type of wedding?
The answer is yes. On the home page I have a badge that says "This business serves everyone" and I mean it.
When will we get our photos?
I promise delivery in 4 to 6 weeks. I do post a peek or two on Instagram within a day or two. Sometimes I'm so wired from the excitement when I get home that I post one that night. I know this is a time where everything happens at lightening speed and attention spans are short, but I want to make sure you're getting the best possible images and your images get my full attention.
Do you edit all of the photos?
I cull photos to make sure you're getting all of the best. Your gallery will be cohesive, color corrected, and professionally edited.
Will you photograph my wedding outside of Albuquerque/Santa Fe?
Yes. Travel is added to collections for locations beyond 100 miles from Corrales.
Will you photograph rehearsals, bridal photos, or day after sessions?
Sure. We can definitely add extra coverage and sessions to any collection. Bridal sessions are a great way to test your hair and makeup before the wedding and day after sessions are a great way to get those dramatic landscape scenes if you want them but won't have a spot like that at your venue or want to save an extra photo session for the day after so you can focus on the party.
Why should I choose you over another photographer?
There are so many great photographers here in our area. How do you choose? My goal is to give you the best possible images, be there with you every step of the way, make sure you're getting gorgeous art in your home so you have daily reminders of wedding memories, and probably make some new friends while we're at it.
A side story...when we were packing our moving van in Montana to come back to New Mexico, one of my brides from a couple years before was driving by and she stopped her car in the middle of our street to hop out for a chat and hugs. This is everything. I want you to be so happy just like her.
