First of all, DUUUUDE!! Congratulations on your engagement! This is one of your greatest adventures and I'm seriously so honored you’re considering to bring me along. Your time and your investment is so valuable to me, so I’ve put together this little guide to give you an idea of how I do things, what you can expect, and your pricing options.
To kick things off, I wanted you to know a little bit more about who I am and why I absolutely LOVE what I do! My name is Victoria. Most days you can find me exploring Nashville with my friends or editing at a local coffee shop. I discovered photography when I was 13 and I haven't looked back since. I would describe my photography style as luminous, warm, and natural. I adore rich colors and creamy skin tones. When I'm behind the camera, I am all about capturing the joyful, soulful, and genuine moments.
You are never going to have a day quite like the day of your wedding. It is a once in a lifetime phenomenon where your closest family members and your dearest friends come come together to celebrate the beautiful promise you will make to each other. There is no one on earth quite like you and the human you are about to marry, and I believe that your wedding photos should reflect all the wonderfulness makes your relationship so special. It is my mission to beautifully and artistically capture the relationship you have with the person you love most in this world.
Let's hop to it!
Read this first...
Every wedding package includes access to my engagement and wedding photography guides, expert advice, custom timeline creation, and a friend through the wedding planning process (HINT: It's me.) I want to help you every step of the way! I take my job seriously and in order to give you the best experience you can get, I do so much more than just show up & take pictures.

Though I am confident in shooting a wedding on my own, I cannot be in two places at once! Second shooters are so great for getting additional photos from different perspectives and angles. Weddings go by fast, including a second shooter in your package ensures that there is not one moment missed.
For rehearsal dinners, engagement parties, or extra wedding day coverage beyond your coverage selection. I deliver 75-100 images per hour.
$200 per hour
A lovely add on option for bridal portraits. Bridals are a great opportunity to get all the details of you in your dream dress before the rush of the wedding day.
Why do your wedding packages include engagement sessions?
I have found that the best way to ensure a seamless photography experience on your wedding day is to get comfortable with each other before hand! I don't want my couples to be clients, I want you to be my friend! Engagement photos are the best way to get to know each other and see how I work behind the camera. Plus, you will get beautiful photos of just the two of you totally in love and super excited for your wedding day. You can use these images for your wedding website, save the dates, your guest book, or to share on social media.
(Is an engagement session not an option for you because you've already had them taken, you live out of state, or the timing doesn't work? No problem! Just let me know!)
"Victoria was the best decision we made about our wedding. She was SO accommodating, and made us feel like the most important people in the world. She is seriously talented and so kind!! She had to work in some SERIOUS southern heat, had the best personality, and was so much fun to work with.
She took every word I had into consideration and the pictures she took are so personal and aesthetically BEAUTIFUL. Every picture she takes turns to gold. I can't say enough great things about her. Our wedding photography is so beautiful and something I will cherish forever. 100% would recommend to anyone needing a wedding photographer."
"Victoria is a gem ya'll! My husband and I searched high and low in the area for someone with a unique and rich taste for photography. We both have really fun and corky personalities, and we were looking for someone who could play off of that. Victoria was the perfect match. She made my husband and I feel so comfortable in front of the camera.
The thing I adore most about Victoria's work is how each couple is a new story to her, and she perfectly depicts each couple for who they are, the love they share, and the uniqueness of "them". If you're looking for someone to capture your day in all of its fullness, please choose this young lady as your vendor!"
Awesome. So What's Next?
Awesome. So What's Next?
This is how it'll all go down:
1. We’ll meet for coffee and I'll get to know your story, which will help me create beautiful photographs that display you and your fiancé the best. Client connection is HUGE to me!
2. We choose a package that works for you based upon your unique needs.
3. If you decide I am the right fit, you simply need to sign my contract and pay a non-refundable 50% deposit. This can all be done online through my booking website.
4. About a month or so before the wedding, I'll send you my wedding day questionnaire and together we’ll craft a photo plan that you can be excited about.
5. Your wedding day is here! You will make memories that will last a lifetime and I will be there to capture it all through my artistic vision.
6. Within 5 weeks of your wedding, you will recieve your full wedding gallery! Yay!
Where are you based? Do you travel?
I am currently based in the beautiful Middle Tennessee area, but you best believe I am down to travel! Let me know if you are having a destination wedding or if you are based in another state; I would love to join you!
I'm awkward AF, are our photos still going to be amazing?
YES. I'm not in the business of photographing perfect people, I'm here for the REAL stuff. I've been in your shoes before, getting in front of the camera is freaking scary! But I'm here to make the process so fun and catered towards the people who get the jitters when they're put in front of the camera. Stiff posing isn't my thing, belly laughs, running hand in hand, and passionate kisses are. I'll give you guidance and prompting, so don't feel like you have to do all the work, that's my job!
How many hours of wedding coverage do we need?
I have three different wedding packages with three coverage options. 10 hours for the weddings with multiple locations, a longer reception, and a relaxed, no-rush timeline. 8 hours is the sweet spot for a lot of weddings! It gives me enough time to capture all the standard wedding things from getting ready to the reception. 6 hours is for the smaller, intimate weddings that may have a shorter reception or may feel that they might not need full wedding coverage. I have something for everyone! It is my goal to give you exactly what you're paying for.
How many photos can we expect?
I average around 75-100 delivered photos per hour for weddings. This of course depend on the unique situation of your wedding day. I edit and deliver the best photos and eliminate the duds if they don't meet my quality standards.
Can I see a full wedding gallery?
Yes absolutely! What I choose to show on my website and social media isn't always a full representation of an entire wedding day. Simply ask for a link to either a full wedding or engagement session via e-mail and I'll gladly send it over.
Who owns the copyright to my images?
While I retain the copyright of the images from your wedding day, our contract gives personal print and media permissions to my clients for any non-commercial usage. My wedding collections includes the full resolution digital images with a print release and access to an online gallery where you can order beautiful professional prints and products.
Do you have insurance?
Sure do! Let me know if your venue needs my information and I'd be happy to send it over.
When will I see my images?
I work hard for efficient processing and quick turnaround times, without forsaking quality! You can expect a preview from your wedding day or session within 48 hours. You will receive an e-mail containing your full wedding gallery within 6 weeks of your wedding, and your engagement session within 3 weeks of your session.
