hello, bride to bE!
Congratulations, you’re getting MARRIED! Your wedding day will be one of the biggest days of your life, and deserves to be treated as just that! As a wife myself, I know how much thought and planning goes into this process, and my goal is to help you along the way however I can. I love to meet with my couples at least once before booking, to ensure that you and I are a perfect fit for your wedding day, and so that we can get to know each other more as we take this step toward documenting this milestone in your lives. We’ll grab coffee (my treat!), chat over all of your big plans, and I’ll be happy to answer any questions that you have! From there, if you decide that you’d love to be a part of the MHP family, we’ll take the steps to make it official! I absolutely love every couple that I have the opportunity to work with, and am always honored to capture every wedding day that I get to be a part of.
Even if you feel that your needs slightly differ with what we offer, I would still love to hear from you and meet with you! We can discuss exactly what your wedding day looks like, and try to customize a package just for your special day!

In order to devote our best selves to you, and to ensure that we don't miss a beat with our little ones, MHP accepts a limited amount of weddings and portrait sessions per year.
How many photos are included in my portrait session or wedding day coverage?
Any time this question is asked, I always let clients know that every session is different, so exact numbers will vary. However, there is a guaranteed minimum of 50 delivered images for portrait/lifestyle sessions, and a minimum of 50-75 images per hour on wedding days
Will I receive every photo that is taken?
In short: Not every photo will be worthy of being delivered. If there is a duplicate photo, an image is out of focus, someone is blinking, etc, these images will not make the cut. Only the best photos are hand selected and edited, and delivered to you. However, I will deliver any photos that I feel you would want to have and will cherish.
What is your turnaround time?
Turnaround can vary, depending on the time of year. However, for portrait sessions, my general turnaround time is up to 2 weeks. Wedding galleries are delivered no more than 8 weeks post wedding day.
Can you Photoshop this out?
I use Photoshop VERY minimally, and only as a last resort to save a photo. Your photos should reflect your most natural self, and I strive to achieve your photos as accurate as possible in camera, so that there is less work to do in editing. Any extensive Photoshop work (if applicable with my Photoshop knowledge) will cost an additional fee.
How would you describe your style?
My style could best be described as light & airy, classic, and timeless. I edit my photos to resemble film, with a light and airy feel, and am a total sucker for candid moments. I love the little moments in between, when you're laughing, being silly, or soaking in a moment with your loved one. These are the times that will be remembered forever!
What should I wear to my session? Do you have recommendations?
Yes! If you happen to follow along on Instagram, you'll see that our feed is full of light blues, blushes, and creamy neutrals. These colors flow with our brand and style of light and airy, and are always our first suggestion. Our second would be to to steer away from super bold patterns that would be distracting, verbiage, and large logos. If you would like specific examples, feel free to send us an email, and we'll be happy to help!
Do I have to have an engagement session?
If you are set on not having an engagement session, it can easily be taken off of your wedding package. Keep in mind that they are complimentary, so it will not affect the package cost. However, engagement sessions are always recommended! They are so much fun, and a perfect way for you to relax together in the midst of wedding planning. Engagement sessions also allow us to really get to know each other, as give you a chance to warm up in front of the camera before the big day!
Do you travel?
Yes! With every wedding package, 60 miles of travel is already included! However, I’m up for a little road trip beyond that distance, as well as for portrait sessions, too! Especially if it involves Charleston, SC or anywhere near the beach! Please always feel free to send me a message and ask if I can accommodate you by travelling!
