Everything you need to know about our philosophy and process, plus what it really means to be a Rindiswan bride


I'm so happy you're here!!

You’re engaged?! Well you’re in the right place! Make yourself at home!

After 13 years in business & hundreds of weddings, my favorite part of our job is still the incredible couples that come into our life!

Not sure where to start? Here are some great places to begin exploring! (We hope you feel free to stay awhile.)


  1. Step 1:
    Lets be Friends

    Your wedding day is a once-in-a-lifetime, joy-filled, spectacular day that’s going to be filled with too many laughs, tears, and memories to count. It’s a day you’ve been dreaming about for your entire life, and nothing can compare to the moment you realized that this was the ONE… until the moment you two say “I do.”

    Every wedding day is sacred to me, and I care just as much about my bride and groom’s marriage as I do their wedding photos.

    From your initial inquiry to the final delivery of your images, I’m most excited about getting to know you two as a couple and as new friends. It is truly an honor to be the one to capture beautiful, timeless, and joyful images for you and your family’s past and future generations to remember your wedding day by!

  2. Step 7:
    Online Gallery

    Photographers use the word "investment" because we have seen time and time again how our images become more precious as time marches on.  Your story is worthy of being told. And you should find a storyteller who gets it and can tell future generations what this day was truly about. And along the way, this whole  photography experience should be FUN and EASY.  Because when you're relaxed and can trust your photographer, that's when your photos will come alive.

    After your wedding day is over, you will receive an online gallery full of all of your wedding memories! HUNDREDS and HUNDREDS of them! We encourage our RindiSwan Couples to sit down with a glass of wine the night that their gallery goes live and enjoy reliving their wedding day through their images!

    Our flushmount albums are custom designed, handcrafted, and made to stand the test of time. Leather, linen, or silk covers paired with thick, lay-flat pages elevate wedding images into enduring fine art that tells a story for generations.

  4. Let's Chat :)

    The next step is to tell me a little bit about yourselves! I'd love to hear more about you, what you're about, what makes you tick, your story.  Fill out the contact form and I'll be in touch within 24 hours.  

    Can't wait to hear from you!

  5. Step 6:
    Your Wedding Day

    It’s here! It’s time to celebrate, relax and let us get to work! From the little details, to the ceremony, to bride and groom portrait time, to the reception- you can trust that I will be working hard to capture the beauty and the genuine emotion of the day!

    This day is going to be a blur to you and so we make it a priority to capture the traditional shots that every bride needs while also capturing the moments in between in a creative & unique way.

    One of our favorite parts of the wedding day is our portrait time with the newlyweds and getting to meet our couple’s families and best friends!!

    When you see your featured post on the RindiSwan blog, you'll be reminded of all that joy and see all the love and laughter from a whole new perspective.

  6. Step 5:

    Let the fun begin!

    After you book, we’ll schedule your engagement session. And don’t worry... we’ll teach you EVERYTHING! We thrive at helping our couples get comfortable and feel like themselves. After the first 20 minutes of your session, you will be pros. GUARANTEED.

    I’ve NEVER had a couple not feel at ease! Even if you think you’re not photogenic or if your fiancé “hates having pictures taken”, you will be killing it after 20 minutes have gone by!

    That’s all the time we need to get rid of nerves and start capturing the joy of this new season of your life together! After your engagement session you’ll be featured on the Rindiswan Facebook Page and will also be sent your online gallery of images todownload and share however you wish.

  7. Step 4:
    Wedding Timeline

    Leading up to the wedding, I help you plan the photography aspects of the day hand-in-hand, so that we have the best opportunities for photographs and the fewest opportunities for stress. From our bridal guide to album design, you'll be guided every step of the way.

    I love creating custom timelines for our couples to ensure that you don’t miss out on your dream wedding photos! I want  to make sure I get all those dreamy images you've been dreaming about!

    I work with our RindiSwan Couples to plan their day so that they can actually have unique dream images of their OWN!

    After 13 years of photographing weddings, we know how to create the perfect timeline for a photography-friendly wedding day!

    The Process


  8. Step 3:
    Lets Connect

    If I have your date available, we’ll meet (either in person or telephonically) to see if we’re a good fit.

    We’ll go through all the different options together, so you won’t have any unanswered questions. Talk about your wedding dreams and vision.  Your wedding expectations, the wedding timeline and any surprises or special moments I need to know about and a lot more...

    Once your contract is signed and the deposit is paid, you'll officially be on my calendar!

    After booking, RindiSwan Couples receive a our specially designed bridal guide. Created to help you get the most out of your wedding photography. It includes wedding advice for each season, ideal timelines for your day, information about family formals & couple sessions, and so much more!

  9. I don’t believe that wedding photography is one-size-fits-all! I know that RindiSwan Brides are unique and I work VERY hard to find them! I serve a very specific type of bride who recognizes that if she wants joyful, genuine portraits of herself & her new groom, then she needs more than just pretty pictures.

    She needs an incredible EXPERIENCE!

    Step 2:
    We are probably a good fit if...

    You are a little nervous, but mostly excited about becoming husband + wife.

    You have great expectations and skip a heartbeat when you go for your dress fitting.

    You want your photographs to look beautiful, but, above all, capture the real emotion of the day.

    You might exchange love letters while getting ready or write your own vows.

    You will laugh when you spy your photographer dancing whilst shooting at the reception.

    And you still have a hard time believing the man of your dreams wants to spend the rest of his life with you.
