to Know

when working with mwa :)

this is everything

when you book me for your future wedding or elopement, you are not only booking your photographer, but you are gaining a friend to help you through the entire process. that is who i am and truly what makes me different than other photographers!!

You are not just booking a photographer

i live for any opportunity to be candid

at every single one of my shoots, you will get like one or two refrigerator photos (aka the prom pose) for family such as grandparents and parents, but other than that we are going to have freaking fun! i want to see real and authentic smiles, kisses, and laughs no matter how awkward you think you are (cause you're not)!!

i bet when you were looking for someone to photograph your elopement or wedding, you didn't expect to get anything besides what you searched. well, i am here to tell you that your day is as special to me as it is to you!! i want to create a relationship with you two and make your day just that little more perfect.

i'm not your typical photographer

i kid you not, every single one your guys words make me want to cry (only happy tears of course). the love that is shown for my little biz is more than i could have every asked for!! i hope to do this for you guys!

my day with samantha was unbelievable. it felt like i was living a fairytale standing above one of the craziest places on the planet. my heart was racing to finally marry the love of my life, but i also was scared to fall thousands of feet (just joking, haha)! for real, sam knew exactly what she was doing, and when i got the photos back i cried my eyes out for every single photo. these will immediately be hung in the house lol.

"She is seriously such a joy"

sam photographed us at the grand tetons in wyoming and it was a freaking DREAM! she truly makes you feel so comfortable in front of the camera and is she is seriously such a joy to be around. not to mention, her work is absolutely beautiful (but that speaks for itself). if you are looking for someone to capture your elopement, sam is the best in the market, and i can't wait to see her again in the years to come.

the entire experience with sam was nothing but fantastic. from the beginning she is so welcoming and makes you feel so comfortable! she is so easy going and radiates positivity! she has a very outgoing personality which made the photoshoot so much fun! we would love to have the opportunity for another photoshoot with sam again!

from the moment we started our shoot, sam made us feel so comfortable. it was like we were automatically best friends, and talking about everything. no joke, we both thought of the same phineaus and ferb song at one point. my husband and i had so much fun that toward the end i couldn't stop kissing him, and i didn't want the shoot to end. on top of that, the photos were unbelievable beautiful, and i can't wait to see sam again!

i couldn't have asked for a better photographer. sam knew exactly what she was doing, and made my wedding day go so smooth. with everything happening cause of COVID i was worried about every little detail, but sam made me smile throughout the entire process. my wedding was more than i could have expected, and i know that these memories are going to be saved and shown for decades. the entire day was perfect. 

"I literally have no words"

samantha did something we never thought possible. she made us look like the king and queen we see each other to be. for our special day, we woke up early to beat the sunrise in arches national park. samantha was ready way before us, and even grabbed us coffee to help us wake up, haha. i literally have no words with how helpful, talented, and sweet this girl is about her new friendships and business.

yes. yes. and oh ya, yes!! i want to make sure you are comfortable with whatever package you decide to choose. sometimes $$ can be hard to come up with, and i totally get that. generally i require a 50% downpayment to secure your spot for your wedding or elopement. the rest is due a month prior to the special day. 

depending on what time of the year it is, my turnaround time usually is three weeks for weddings and elopements. i want to make sure you are getting all your images and every single one of them are absolutely perfect. buttttt, you will get sneaks 24 hr after the shoot!

is this even a question?! hell yes i love to travel! some of my favorite shoots are destination elopements. i will pack my bag in minutes to get to a shoot with you across the country, haha! just name a location and i am there.

i am an hour north of minneapolis, minnesota. i have lived here my entire life, but am a sucker for all things travel. i honestly am moving away from here as soon as i can, not gonna lie, haha!! but if you are coming to visit, it is such a stunning state all around!!

Do you have payment plans?

Do you travel?

What is your turnaround time?

Where are you based out of?

FAQs

if it is your wedding, please wear your dress and suit, haha! on the other hand, for couples shoots i always recommend picking out neutral outfits that would do well together. some of my favorite color combos are beige + olive green, brown + tan, and white + grey.

What do we wear to our shoot?

again, this is not something any photographers allow. so no, you can't add filters over my photos. the reason behind this is because the photos are ALREADY edited. this process took a lot of time and effort, and generally adding a filter ruins this art. So please, don't add filters to our work.

Can I put filters over the photos?

nope. when you are booking me as your photographer, you are also booking my editing and shooting style. this is something that not many photographers do, so make sure you are in love with the work of your photographer as well as their personality and types of photos. 

Can you edit in multiple styles?

this is just a big no. i do not know any other photographers who are comfortable giving out raw images from any type of photoshoot. when booking a photographer, you are getting their photos which are professionally edited over a set amount of time to keep forever. 

Do you give out raw images?
