Welcome to weddings by Rustically Romantic!


Wedding Photographers are just like wedding dresses!

There will always be ones so much cheaper or way too expensive.

But, eventually there will that one, that you love too much to pass up and let go.

And that will be the one you fight to have.



Thank you for taking the time to visit……I realize that this is one of the most important days in your life, and the fact that you are even considering me and trusting me to be a part of it, is an honor! There are a ton, and I mean a ton of photographers out there. Ones much more expensive, ones much less expensive, so why choose me?


While images can be duplicated, personalities and styles cannot. Having someone you like, trust, and are compatible with has immeasurable value for you and your Fiance on your wedding day. It is truly the foundation of my business, and what sets me apart in the wedding industry. Loving your photographer and their work are equally important. One without the other has little value…..and really girls, fun, no stress, happy patient Fiance and groomsmen, and obsessed with your final wedding pics? WINNING!



I customize packages for each couple,

which means you can make your package fit your budget! 

Please contact me to arrange a sit-down meeting to see examples, discuss my approach, review package options, policies, and the opportunity to exchange your hopes with my vision to create the most fun-loving, romantic, creative day ever!
