the experience

creating a day that you'll never forget

Photography is more than just photos. Not only do you deserve beautiful images, you also deserve an amazing photographic experience that doesn't leave you feeling stressed

From crafting a customized timeline, to sending wedding day tips and tricks, it’s my mission to help create a day that flows seamlessly and is free of unnecessary stresses. I consider it such a privilege to be invited into this special time of your life, and I want to say a huge thank you for considering me as your photographer. My goal as a wedding photographer is to make this one aspect of the planning process simple. I strive to be someone that makes you feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera, which in result, will give you genuine, joyful images!


kind words


"she captured our day better than we could have ever imagined!"

Jade was seriously the best investment we made for our wedding! While planning our wedding, we always knew the photographer we chose would be the most important aspect of the day. Boy, did we hit the jackpot! She made us feel comfortable, made us laugh, made me feel so beautiful, and most of all she captured our day better then we could have ever imagined! 


"she really cares about her work and the people she interacts with."

Jade is an excellent photographer and I would choose her over and over for all my future events! She made our wedding day so special! We weren't just another client to her, which meant so much to me because she really cares about her work and the people she interacts with.

"she was great to work with and so professional"

Jade did an amazing job for us for our wedding. She was easy to get in contact with, very helpful, and was great at giving us input so our timeline ran smoothly! She was so great to work with and so professional! I would highly recommend Jade!

engagement sessions

Every part of your love story deserves to be documented

If your collection does not include an engagement session, but you are interested in adding one a la carte, here's what to expect:

I include complimentary engagement sessions in my larger collections because I believe that it is so important for you to get in front of the camera before the wedding. Engagement sessions allow me to get to know my clients while helping them warm up to the camera and learn the basics of posing. By the time their wedding day arrives, they are relaxed and feel like pros in front of the camera!


- 1 to 1.5 hour session
- up to two locations
- 80+ edited digital high-resolution images provided in an online gallery within 2-3 weeks


How much coverage do I need?

That definitely depends on your wedding! If you are planning a traditional wedding and desire photos of your beautiful details, getting ready photos, ceremony, formal portraits, and most of your reception, 8 hours of coverage is generally the perfect amount of time. If you would like all of the previously mentioned parts of the day covered, and would like me to stay until the end of the reception, 9-10 hours is recommended.

What can I expect in the final gallery?

You can expect an average of 75 to 100 images per hour. I like delivering photos quickly and easily via an online gallery within 4 - 5 weeks after your wedding. Through the online gallery, you will have the ability to print, share, and download the high-resolution images as much as you want! I only deliver photos that I consider to be of the highest standards that match my style, so I do not provide raw images.

Do you offer prints?

 I do not include prints or album options in my packages, however, when you receive the link to your gallery, you will be able to purchase prints/albums directly from the gallery website - super simple and convenient! I recommend printing this route because it ensures high-quality prints with accurate coloring. I always deliver high-resolution images and a print release, so you are more than welcome to print elsewhere.

Are you insured?

Yes! I am a fully licensed and insured California business. I am more than happy to provide proof of general liability insurance to your wedding venue, if requested. I also have backup equipment that I bring with me on wedding days, and take many steps to make sure there are multiple backups of your images.

How do I book you?

In order to keep everything super streamlined, I do everything digitally. I will send you an email with a digital contract and invoice, and things are official with the payment of a 30% non-refundable retainer plus the signing of the contract. Then the fun begins!


thank you!
