No dream is too wild

You deserve to have the wedding you want

Want to meet at midnight for a sunrise hike?

  Have you always dreamed of an exotic destination? 

Looking to bring your entire wedding party to the summit of a mountain? 

Nothing is too crazy. I'm up for anything and will always do everything in my power to make it happen. Because at the end of the day, this is YOUR wedding. I want you to have it your way, no matter what. 

LET’S DO THIS

Let’s lay it all
out on the table

This is how
I roll

01.

get this thing started

Read my website and fill out the contact form. And like, actually fill it out. I’m not looking for a form full of N/A’s, I’m looking for some real answers so I can get to know you and what you’re really looking for. So while I don’t need a novel, I do need you to give it some thought, please and thank you.

02.

review & prepare

If I think we’re a good fit, I’ll send you over tons of information to help you get to know me a little bit more. You’ll receive full access to view each of my packages and complete galleries to peruse. Meeting “face-to-face” is uber important, and is required before we move further along the booking process.

03.

face to face meeting over zoom

It’s time to Zoom, FaceTime, and/or Skype. This used to be way more awkward pre-2020 but now, feel free to show up in your pjs with a coffee mug full of whisky. I might be doing the same soooo, no judgments. This isn’t a sales pitch AT ALL. In fact, I won’t even mention my pricing unless you ask. It’s literally just an opportunity to chat and make sure that I’m the right wedding photographer to document your day.

04.

logistics and details

I’ll send you a follow up email after we video chat. It’ll reiterate what we talked about plus answer any additional questions you might have had. I’ll also share a sample contract with you so there’s zero surprises.Sharing this contract with you ahead of time ensures you have an opportunity to read through it and ask questions in a no-pressure environment before making any decisions. Ah, transparency. You gotta love it.

05.

Booking!

You’ll get a contract straight to your inbox. To hold your date, all you need to do is sign and submit with a non-refundable retainer payment. Your confirmation email will come back to you with my exclusive Wedding Planning Guide (or a more general guide if you’re not gettin’ hitched) and a timeline so you know what to expect.

06.

Planning begins in earnest!

I don’t limit how many emails you can send, how many phone calls we have, or how often you see my face over video. We’ll discuss your expectations, goals, and plans for your day and then create a preliminary timeline. I’ll share vendor recommendations, location suggestions, activities, accommodations, and even wedding venues if you haven’t made it that far. 

07.

THE BIG DAY

Whether it’s a lifestyle session, elopement, or wedding, it’s still a big day. If I’m shooting at a new-to-me-venue, I’ll arrive at least one hour early to walk around the property and scope out all the good spots. Because we nailed all the pre-planning, the day will go off without a hitch and you’ll have the best time ever. 

08.

Sneak peeks! Sneak peeks! Sneak peeks!

Listen, I’m just as excited to go through your photos as you are to see them which is why I always include sneak peeks. With any package, you’ll receive a handful within one business week. For wedding and elopements, you’ll receive a sneak peek gallery containing 50-100 images within two business weeks.

09.

FINAL GALLERY

You’ll receive your final gallery within 6-8 weeks for lifestyle sessions, or up to 10 weeks for elopements and weddings. So how does it work? Every photo included will be high-res and fully edited. There are no watermarks and unlimited downloads. Feel free to share your PIN with all of those important people in your life so they can see the magic as well. 

10.

Time to order prints and albums!

Your photos deserve to be seen, touched, held. Make sure they don’t live on a hard drive for the rest of existence and turn them into a beautiful heirloom album instead.

INQUIRE FOR FULL PACKAGE DETAILS

I love tagging along on your outings as a couple to capture the love that you two share. It’s something special. No matter the occasion (even if it’s just a fun date idea), I’ll be there with my camera at the ready. Not to put ideas in your head, but I even love a good surprise proposal (*wink wink*).

My fiancé proposed to me in on January 12th, 2022, in Lake Placid, NY on the grounds of the Whiteface Lodge- it was perfect. Part of the reason it was so perfect was Whitney. Talk about one of the most genuinely kind and happy souls you’ll ever encounter! Whitney was the utmost professional while shooting our engagement session, but that didn’t stop her from having fun with us- and Gus! She laughed when we laughed and never for one second made us feel awkward about being our authentic selves.

Jessi H

hire this amazing photographer

I truly cannot say enough about Whitney and her work. We really wanted someone who could capture all the in between moments, not just the big ones, and Whitney does just that. We are in love with our photos and love reliving the day through them. Whitney was so helpful in figuring out our timeline and worked with us so that we also got to hike the next day in the mountains we love and do an adventure session with just us two. We had the best of both worlds because of her.

Adriana

Whitney is a wonder to work with

My husband and I love to tell the story of our wedding day. The number one question we get asked is “Why the Adirondacks?”. The answer is Whitney. Whitney’s wedding photographs came across my Instagram in 2017 when she photographed a friend’s wedding.  My husband and I ended up having a hybrid-style wedding. We met Whitney EARLY on our wedding day to hike to a remote location for our private vows.
Now, we have Whitney’s stunning photographs of our wedding day on display in our home and I obsess over them daily. I highly recommend booking Whitney as your wedding photographer, you will not regret it.

A Dream Come True

Whitney was our wedding photographer on 10/01/21. She is really, really, really good at what she does. You might think that means she’s just good at taking pictures, but it’s so much more than that. She is organized, an excellent communicator, honest, reliable, funny, and friendly. Combine all of that and you have one heck of a person who also happens to take amazing pictures.
Whitney was incredible and I cannot recommend her enough. You will absolutely not regret your decision to have her capture your wedding. 10/10.

Quinn R

Whitney is a gem of a human

I've been following Whitney on Instagram for years now and always knew that if I eloped in the Adirondacks, she would be my photographer. Once I filled out her inquiry form on her website, I received a response in less than 24 hours and then we were Facetiming to meet each other within a few days! Whitney treats every couple the same, no matter how big or small your elopement or wedding party is.
We could not have asked for a more professional, fun, and talented photographer to work with. Thank you Whitney for such an amazing experience!

Candace

Professional, fun, and amazingly talented!

Working with Whitney was an absolute dream. She was able to squeeze in our day after a last minute cancellation and I am thankful beyond words that she did. She was incredibly detail oriented and on top of things from the moment we first reached out to her - from our initial skype introduction to the weeks following our wedding - she was responsive, professional, and not to mention fantastic to work with! Her work is perfect - she magnificently captured the full story of our wedding day.
She instantly made us feel at ease.

Aileen

she is so FUN to work with!

Whitney is an incredible photographer with a true talent for capturing love and emotion. Each and every photo she captured from our wedding day is stunningly beautiful.
We did have quite a bit of rain but that did not stop Whitney from taking amazing pictures, even if that meant getting totally soaked herself (which she did so willingly). Throughout the day she made my husband and I feel so comfortable while she was photographing us.  We felt calm and confident knowing our wedding was in the hands of a professional like Whitney.

Alyson

She is truly in a class of her own!

We LOVED reliving our wedding morning looking through all of our pictures!! She made our day so special and memorable- not only because of the pictures you took literally documented our day, she helped keep our day flowing smoothly and stress free!! We keep bragging to everyone about how amazing Whitney was and how we could not imagine working with anyone else!! We are so obsessed with staring at these pictures!! It is going to be so hard to choose which ones we hang around our home, and that's the best kind of problem to have if you ask me!

Kerrie

Each photo is better than the next

Because of Covid, the wedding location changed and the event was scaled back. Whitney was there for us the entire time durning so much uncertainty. She drove 4 hours to the new location for our mini wedding. Whitney captured every detail of the wedding day in the most exceptional way.
The stunning photos we have as memories are the proof of her skills. Whitney is a very talented photographer and we recommend her highly to any bride and groom. You will not be disappointed!

Maris

Whitney is an exceptional photographer!

When Covid changed our wedding plans three separate times, Whitney spent her own time creating detailed alternative plans for our wedding. She shared detailed explanations, along with links, and her experience with the place. Whitney was flexible and uplifting during the process-especially during the hectic times. Whitney embodies the KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON mantra.
Our wedding pictures made us smile, laugh, and cry. Whitney made us feel comfortable, excited, and as though we were lifelong friends. The smiles you see in her photographs are genuine, as you will be laughing, smiling and falling in love all over again! Whitney captures the couple in their own unique way

Katharine

She is simply the best!

where are you based out of?

We live in Albany, Oregon! After spending the last 10+ years in the Adirondack mountains of upstate NY, we recently relocated to the beauiful Pacific Northwest.

how many photos will i receive?

Every wedding, elopement, and couple's session is different so it's hard to give a tried-and-true number!

I promise though you'll get all the good ones. I don't believe in proofing galleries or making you pay more for additional, unwatermarked images. You'll get the best of the best to remember your day by!

← BACK

what happens if you can't make it to our wedding?

It would literally take an act of God or a life-threatening accident/illness to keep me from your wedding. However, if it came down to the worst case scenario, I would find another photographer I trust completely to capture your day, although I'm not legally bound to do so.

If I'm unable to photograph your wedding, all money would be refunded.

← BACK

do you help in the planning process?

Oh gosh, yes.

I don't expect you to know when the best light to photograph occurs, or how long family portraits might take, or what an 8 hour timeline might look like.

The best photos come from the best planning so ask away. I want to be involved every step of the way to ensure your wedding day or session goes off better than you could have ever imagined (or so your photos will show).

← BACK

this looks awesome. how do we book you?

First things first, fill out my contact form! Please do not directly email me with your inquiry as I'll just redirect you to my contact page to fill out my form first. There's a lot of important info I need to know right off the bat!

After that, we'll schedule a video call consultation to make sure we all click and vibe and like each other and etc etc. If all looks good on both ends, I require a signed contract and a non-refundable retainer paid to officially hold your date.

No dates are held without those two items so just bear in mind that although we may be emailing, your date can disappear at any time.

← BACK

never hurts to ask for a discount...right?

Tell you what: when I can successfully bargain a discount for my groceries, mortgage, utility bills, etc., I'll consider offering you the same discount! But until then...no.

Please don't ask me. It makes things awkward because it shows that you don't value my work. I will gladly offer payment plans to help you stick to your monthly budget but will not discount overall package costs.
