LDP Weddings & Elopements

My belief is that every person should be framed in the moments they've felt the most loved and cared for.

I take a natural approach to focusing and capturing the tiniest most intimate to the joy filled most elaborate details that piece together the ambiance of your journey. This is just an event; this is your story!

I hope to bring a spark back to time spent flipping through photo albums and scanning the walls of your home admiring the breathtaking, beautiful, adorable, silly, romantic, uniqueness of your loved one.



Do you shoot weddings?

Feel free to reach out now with any questions or to receive a link to my weddings portfolio gallery!

Will you help coordinate outfit choices?

I am far from a fashionista. I consider my style to be in the category of "Moms at Target in athletic apparel"; but I am glad to help in any way I can. Currently I have a Pinterest inspo board that my clients may request access to after booking their session. If you are just nervous or want some tips feel free to shoot me a photos of your outfits or ideas.

Can I extend the length of my session?

I have years of experience in shooting sessions with all types of clients. My session times take into account best lighting time frames, time allotted for an ample amount of photos, and leave room to shake out those in front of the camera jitters with a few small breaks for the kiddos. At this time session time frames cannot be extended past 60mins (with the exception of senior portrait sessions). If you have questions regarding outfit changes or locations please inquire.

Does my session have to be paid in full to secure my date?

In order to secure your date you will need to pay a 50% retainer fee. Your remaining balance is due 24 hours prior to your session date.

Do I have to order prints through you?

You do not have to order your prints directly through me. I will leave you with a list of preferred printing retailers when your gallery is delivered.

What locations do you shoot at?

A majority of my sessions take place in the Lowcountry - Charleston, SC and surrounding areas! I am happy to travel. I am often in GA, NC, and Ohio throughout the year! Please see my Instagram for travel announcements or feel free to send me a message with your dates and the type of session you would like.

Do you offer creative solo sessions?

Yes! I categorize these as 'model sessions' and they start at $175. I am happy to chat via email or do a video consultation to discuss how we can collaborate to support your creative vision!

Can I bring my Fur Baby?

Uummm Yes please! Just give me notice ahead of time. Also make sure to follow all city regulations regarding pets.

What are your current Covid-19 Guidelines?

I want to do my best at LDP to respect the work our frontline workers are doing and to ease the burden on our hospital staff and health care environments. Let's do our part! I also want my clients to be safe always. That being said, here are a few precautions I am taking at this time. All of my equipment is sanitized before each session, this includes my camera, straps, lens carriers and bag, keys, wallet, and I even disinfect my shoes. For immune system compromised clients, at your request, I can wear a mask during shooting as an extra precaution. I promise I will not be offended at all or bothered if asked; I want to provide as comfortable an environment as possible. Any fevers, illness onset, positive test results, or contact made in regard to Covid-19 should be relayed to me immediately (you may also reschedule without relaying your personal health information - you will receive rescheduling clause information in your post booking email). I have several years of experience as a social worker and take confidentiality extremely seriously; so any information communicated to me will stay between myself and said client. I also have family like you that I love dearly; their protection as well as yours is a top priority. If you have any further questions please let me know.
