McKown FamilyI have been in your shoes! You’ve just gotten engaged and you’re searching for a photographer in your area who is within your budget.  Maybe it’s someone you’ve been following for years and are disappointed they are out of your price range.  Maybe it’s someone you found by Googling your venue.  But I’ve been there and I know how stressful it can be.

When my husband and I were getting married, we first chose a photographer based on price.  As in, they were verrrrrry low budget.  Luckily we did an engagement session with them because it was the most uncomfortable experience we’d ever had.  I’m grateful for that shoot!  It taught me to trust my gut, go back to our original choice in wedding photographer and up our budget so we could book him.  I never regretted it for a second.

Two months after we were married, my father-in-law passed away.  Our wedding photos were an incredible comfort during that difficult time and still are to this day.  I can’t tell you who to book, but please go with someone you trust.  When all is said and done, photographs are the long lasting legacy you will keep for the rest of your life.

It doesn’t take long for me to make everyone comfortable, whether it be your parents, your friends, your guests (just check out my reviews!).  I want you to have the best experience possible and that means I am 100% committed to you and your wedding day.  I love being the one you’ve trusted to capture your day.

Should you have any questions, please give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you and really talking about you, your love and your wedding.

P.S. There are some things about me you just HAVE to know:

  • Working out is my stress relief.
  • My idea of a perfect day is a rainy afternoon where everyone is napping except me. I’m reading a great book with an iced vanilla latte in hand.
  • My husband and I have binge watched Battlestar Galactica, The Walking Dead and Scrubs.
  • Our kids are hilarious, sweet, energetic, photogenic (yes!), and so so kind to each other. I love them to bits.
  • I love cake. If you offer me a piece at your wedding, I will never turn it down!
  • My favorite show is Gilmore Girls. Don’t ask me how many times I’ve seen it. It’s embarrassing.
  • My favorite part of a wedding day is when the bride and groom see each other for the first time. I tear up every single time.
  • I’m a performer and when not photographing, can be seen dancing and singing on stage at the Redlands Bowl.
  • There is no doubt that Coco has an incredible skill at capturing true and beautiful moments. She is fun, professional AND talented.
