It's about more than just a photo

⁠Your wedding day is the start of a marriage. ⁠
⁠⁠
Your story is what is most important and I promise to showcase that in your images.⁠

Why Choose Us

10 years in the wedding industry

Much like a wedding coordinator or planner, your wedding photographer has a pretty intimate role. They get to know you well and end up spending more time with you on the wedding day than your partner does. ⁠

Getting along with them on a personal level is essential. If you don’t like dad jokes and sarcastic comments, it’s best to ensure your photographer doesn’t do those things. Having a thorough consultation and gauging the feeling you get from your photographer is just as important as how they answer your questions. ⁠

Investment

No two couple is the same so the wedding details from each need to reflect that.

Your wedding details shouldn’t look generic; they should be catered to you and your day.⁠

Testimonials

What Our Couples Say

My fiancé knew I wanted a photographer present when he proposed. So he reached out so Sophie and she CAME THROUGH! She even helped him pick out the ring and plan the day.⁠

When the pandemic delayed the ring delivery, she suggested he propose with a ring pop – even went and bought it herself on her way to the session.⁠

I had no idea what was happening, she had told me that she was looking for models to feature lakeside couple sessions. When he got down on one knee, I was BLOWN AWAY!⁠

The pictures came out beautiful. I am going to cherish them for the rest of my life and I am so grateful that Phil hired her. It was WORTH EVERY PENNY!

Sophie is amazing. As a bride, I was stressed already. As a COVID bride, I was a mess. Sophie not only rolled with it but was so encouraging and excited to jump right in. ⁠

She dealt with date changes, venue changes, hour changes, and ever-evolving COVID restrictions with grace and understanding. On top of this, she also delivered magazine-worthy images of our day.⁠

Even more, shortly after our wedding, my grandfather died and Sophie was the holder of the last images of him. Before delivering the gallery to us she separated the photos of him into a different section so we did not have to look at them if we were not ready and it was just the kindest thing and we appreciate that more than words can say. ⁠

If you want someone who cares, is willing to try whatever photos or poses you want, and just be an all around bubbly personality that seamlessly blends into your family then you need to book Sophie right now.

⁠When my husband and I started planning our wedding we had a feeling it would be tough finding someone who was willing to be our photographer for a destination wedding, but then we met Sophie! ⁠

Sophie jumped right in. Over lunch and margaritas (of course) we started discussing logistics and how it would work bringing a photographer with us for our trip and big day. ⁠

Sophie was super enthusiastic about the wedding being down south and didn’t want us to worry about a thing surrounding pictures as she had it covered. She helped me not only with capturing the day perfectly but helping me put together an itinerary for the day to make sure we had enough time for all of our pictures including our first look. ⁠

Being in a new place, Sophie took time out of her trip to scout out beautiful locations around the resort that we didn’t even know existed before the big day. ⁠

The way Sophie capture our day was absolutely stunning! All of our family and friends were also very impressed with Sophie’s work and loved scrolling through the gallery, showing it off to family and friends that weren’t able to make it.⁠

Not only was her work perfection, but Sophie was also great company! Probably the only person I’ll ever do a shot of tequila with ever again! ⁠

Thank you Sophie, your pictures are a gift we will treasure forever!
