I'm your girl!

You’ve got this whole “wedding planning thing” under control because GIRL, I know you! You’re already ahead of the game (hello Type-A!)!

You know the style of photography you love, you’ve done your research (I see that pen and paper in your hand!), and now you’re ready to secure the photographer who will capture your vision beautifully.

You want someone who is organized (but super fun) and who will care deeply about you throughout the entire wedding planning process. 

Photography is #1
on your list.

oh snap, girl!
you're engaged!


You want to trust your photographer 1000%.

I know how you feel . . . choosing a photographer is a BIG decision and you don’t want to mess this up! I mean, you’ll look at your photographs FOREVER. You’re starting to feel a little overwhelmed by how many photographers are out there, and you're wondering "how do I find the right one for me?" I’ll let you in on a secret: an experience matters.

You’re part of a community of brides who value the same experience!


Bragging rights

Timelines, questionnaires, what to wear, how to pose? I’ve got you, girl!

Stress free

I believe your photography experience is just as important as the images captured on your wedding day.

One of a kind

Why does an experience matter?

i need this!

sounds amazing!

let's do this!

I want to be a part of your wedding planning, so that when the wedding day arrives I feel more like a friend than a vendor! Leading up to the wedding day, I will get to know you and the groom-to-be SO well! This is so important to me because photography is a relational experience. We’ll be spending a ton of time together (did you know that you spend more time with your photographer than any other vendor on the wedding day?). 

Without an experience, you’d have to do all of the above on your own! We don't want that to happen! You need someone guiding you through the wedding planning process, and I'm your girl! You care about beautiful photos but you are also looking for a photographer who is organized and detail oriented (insert praise hands emoji here)!

Instead I’ve exchanged my bouquet for a camera.

Think of me as an honorary bridesmaid.

You should only have to fill one role on your wedding day: BRIDE.

I believe that your wedding photography experience should be FUN, stress-free, organized & memorable!

"we do not have enough kind & appreciative words to say about renee."

"Where do we begin?! From the first time we met Renee, she immediately made my husband and I feel 100% comfortable. Neither of us had been in front of a professional camera before and were very nervous to say the least. Renee immediately made us feel confident and at ease. We do not have enough kind and appreciative words to say to Renee for the amount of professionalism, kindness, and flexibility she showed my husband and I at the most exciting time of our lives."

"She brought so much joy to our wedding day."

"Renee did an AMAZING job. She over-delivered on everything from our engagement photos to our special day and she was always a pleasure to work with. She brought so much joy to our day, she wasn't just someone in the background, but someone that made us laugh and smile throughout the day and captured all of our most special moments. She is absolutely the sweetest person I've ever met. We loved getting to do an engagement shoot to get comfortable with her and we loved all of our photos from that as well. There's honestly not a single wedding photo I didn't like from Renee and she truly did an exceptional job. I 100% suggest Renee and wouldn't change our photos or experience for the world!"

"she was so professional & thorough"

"Renee was so amazing to work with for our big day! She was so professional and so thorough, she did not miss any of the special details that were important to us. Starting with the engagement shoot, she made us feel very comfortable and at ease. Our wedding party had so much fun with her and my venue coordinator, day-of planner, MOB and MOG all said something to me after the wedding about how good she was at her job. We had a very large wedding party and she managed everyone so well and kept pictures moving so that everyone could be at cocktail hour. We also had a large wedding and Renee did not miss anything from the ceremony to the dance floor. And most importantly, her pictures were so beautiful and captured our wedding perfectly and exactly how we hoped they would! We are so happy we used Renee for our wedding!"

"renee was the most important & valuable vendor we hired." 

"Renee was the most important and valuable vendor we hired - she takes stunning, natural-light photos with a romantic feel, but more importantly Renee is someone who we felt comfortable with and connected with easily. Renee goes above and beyond to prepare you for your big day - she created an amazingly detailed timeline for the day and addressed details I hadn't even considered! Your day will run smoothly and be perfect thanks to Renee! By the time our wedding day arrived I truly felt like Renee was part of our family. My family continues to sing her praise, not only for her absolutely gorgeous photos, but for her sweet, outgoing nature. We received more photos than we were guaranteed in such a quick turn around! She has truly captured the joy and excitement of our day and we cannot thank her enough. Hiring Renee was the best decision we made for our wedding, and I'm confident you will get to experience the same joy we did."

"Choosing a photographer was really hard for us. We spent hours and hours pouring over online galleries and reaching out to potential vendors but we never really clicked with anyone or found the style we were looking for until we found Renée."
