Why should you hire me?

I secretly love a beautiful chaos!
— Julie Palmer

1) YOU SEEK A ONE STOP SHOP

I'll run around to find Aunt Sally for extra bobby pins, or mom to fix a snap on your bridesmaid dress, or grab my personal "911" caboodle because Uncle Jerry had one too many and spilled some wine all over someone's dress. (Thank God for Tide Pens right?) I love to not only be your photographer for the day, but your extra hand! I am even there for you right from the beginning at our first consultation. For your engagement shoot. I've even been known to help set up a little at your rehearsal dinner (which I wouldn't miss for the world!) I am very caring, and LOVE pleasing my brides! Thanks to years of customer service and parenting, not much gets past me! Your comfort and ease of mind are my number one priorities. Leave it to me, I thrive in a beautiful chaos!

2) YOU <3 TO TRAVEL

OH-EM-GEE! So do I...traveling really gets my creative juices flowing. I don't mind traveling to you to photograph your perfect day! I have the gas and miles covered and I'll meet 'cha there!

3) AUTHENTIC PHOTOS ARE MORE FUN!

In order for me to create authentic, candid moments I give my clients something to do. I instruct an action or a cue for you to re-enact which helps to create real emotion. This helps my clients to feel more at ease and creates a more natural look. I want our sessions to be built around who you are as a couple. I don't want to be the one to memorize a shot list (family formals are the exception!) ...but I want to just go with the flow, vibe off your love, and go on an adventure together! Show me things you love doing together, and let's photograph that!

4) YOU FEEL ONE WITH NATURE

You totally dig my nature like elements, natural lighting, and earthy like tones. You already fell in love with all my work in my PORTFOLIO, and now you want it too!

5) CAMERA TALK!

I know you can handle my spontaneous innovative moments, my passion for art, and adventurous wild side. I mean, I'm in this for you! I wouldn't put it past me to consistently come up with new ideas with my professional opinion of what looks good. You might even hear a lot of "OMG...let's try this....or....come over here I just LOVE this spot..." I've been told several times that my positive, yet creative energy feeds others the same way! I also love to surprise my brides with a short video a few days after their wedding date. I feel like its something that really sets me aside from others and it really helps that I love doing it!
