booking for 2023 - 2024 in the pnw and the adks
It’s okay if you’re feeling a little overwhelmed thinking about the whole planning process. It can feel like A LOT and I totally get it. I wasn’t in the industry when I got married, and the stress is real. But since then, I’ve become a total pro and have worked hard to make planning your photography the best (and simplest) part. If we’re a fit, I’m here to walk you through the whole darn thing so you can relax and enjoy one of the most special times in your life.
Take a look at the average cost most of my couples spend on a specific package. If these fall within your estimated budget, let's chat! Weddings packages range from 8 - 24 hours of coverage, elopements start at 4 hours, and lifestyle sessions cover everything from engagements to maternity. Don't see what you're looking for? Just ask!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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
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.
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!
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.
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).
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.
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.
