Weddings can be stressful but it's important to remember that -
At the end of the day your wedding is YOUR big day. Not anyone else's - so do what makes YOU happy. This could be an elopement in the Redwood Forrest, or at the Cliffs of Moher, it could be a destination wedding in Tuscany Italy, or the sandy beaches of the Riviera Maya. Perhaps you just want to get married with the Finger Lakes as your backdrop because that's where you grew up. It's a tough decision regardless - but as your photographer - I'll go wherever you are! I will be your constant in the ever evolving choices that your wedding entails. I promise to capture all of the big and unforced moments and help you with all the little details leading up to your big day.
So lets get down to it - money is always uncomfortable to talk about -
So I'll just cut to the chase. Your investment depends on the type of wedding you are planning on having. Couples on average spend $5000 for all day unlimited coverage, because weddings are much more than just the ceremony and the first dance. On the smaller scale, $3300 for a 6 hour wedding and $2000 for a typical NY Elopement. I ask for a $1000 nonrefundable retainer fee for all weddings. This will be applied towards your total balance. The remainder of your balance is due 30 days prior to your event if you are state side, and if it's an international wedding, 60 days prior is required.
Travel fees are an additional $800 for USA based weddings/elopements, and $1300 for the rest of the world. These fees cover my flight, airport parking, rental car if needed, and accommodation for 2-3 nights.
How much is it to book you for our wedding?
I require a $1000 non-refundable retainer to secure your date for any of the packages. Then the remainder is due 1 month before your wedding.
Do you offer payment plans?
Of course I do! As long as the balance after the retainer is paid 1 month before your wedding - we gucci.
Do you shoot destination weddings?
Yesss and they're my favorite! I have shot weddings in Mexico, Vermont and Kentucky so far! If it weren't for COVID Ireland and England would be on this list too.
The dream would be to go back to Mexico as much as I can (ya girls a sucker for a good taco and tequila) and to shoot a wedding in every state at least once!
There's something about destination weddings that just fuel the soul. Who doesn't love happy guests who are on a mini-vacation?!
What do you mean unlimited coverage?
First things first - I'm with you alllll dang day. There's no limit on the time coverage I offer even with a destination wedding! Partly because I don't like to miss any moment, but secondly - I'm not the time popo! Who am I to say ooopp dance now or you won't have it photographed? If you're on the dance-floor until 2 am - I'm your gal. If you're going for a pre-wedding swim with your wedding party, lets go - I'll bring the pool floaties and rate the best cannonball on a scale from 1-10.
Will there be a second shooter?
If you want a second shooter we can totally add that on! I have a network of photographer friends I can tap into. However, I like to pride myself in being able to capture everything so depending on the logistics you may not actually need one!
Can I extend the session on the day of?
Oh hell yeah - especially when it comes to weddings. I'm not booking anything else the day of your wedding, so I'm 100% yours. So if you want me to stay a bit longer so you can see my killer sick dance moves while photographing the dance floor I'm your girl.
What kind of gear do you use?
I'm a canon junkie, RIDE OR DIE kind of person. Consequently, I shoot with two Canon R6's.
As for glass I play around with it depending on what I feel like. Most of the time they're strapped with a 85mm/1.2, and the 28-70/2.0. I like the best of both worlds.
Do I have to order prints through you?
Nah man - would it be nice? Yes. However, they're your photos so you can print wherever you'd like. I just strongly recommend anywhere but Walmart/Walgreens unless your desperate for that same day turn around. I recommend if you're not going through me to plan a little ahead (a week tops) and use Nations Photo Lab.
How long will it take to get my photos?
Weddings my contract promises 8-12 weeks. However, I try to get them done as soon as possible. Most of the time it's under a month, and you'll ALWAYS get sneak peeks of the day once I get home from your wedding. Legit I'll stay up to 2am if I have to, I'm just as excited as you are!
Any other kind of session - 3-4 weeks tops!
How long will I have to download my images?
I guarantee 5 years of protection on your galleries. They will forever be at the link I send you once they're all set for you to download. Not to mention, I will have them backed up on multiple hard drives. Your images are SAFE. With me you have the good good gallery insurance.
Will you communicate with me along the way?
Duh. You have 24/7 access and support to me. I love helping my couples any way I can. Emails will be returned within 24 hours guaranteed. Need locations? I got you. Need vendor recommendations? Done. Need a new bff? Sign sealed delivered - I'm yours. Seriously - I'm all yours, however/whenever you need!

WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY
Mitch & Ally
We recently had Kenzie photograph our wedding and the pictures turned out amazing. She is fantastic at photo prompts, posing, and capturing the perfect photo. From getting the perfect sunset pic, to capturing all the shadows during a bright day, everything was beautiful. She is awesome to work with and half the fun at our wedding was actually the pictures. Definitely would recommend to anyone!

Kenzie is simply the best! Not only is she so creative and passionate about her work, she is also funny and willing to work with whatever you throw her way. We have a HUGE crew and Kenzie gets right to work and keeps the rowdy crew organized and on top of things. All of my wedding guests loved her too! She sent sneak peeks within 24 hours and her work left me wanting more. Kenzie is the PERFECT match for any occasion and we hope to use her for all family milestones for years to come!
