Congratulations on your engagement! Getting engaged is one of the most exciting times in your life! Before wedding planning takes over your life, or as a nice break in the middle of everything, is a great time to take a step back, pamper yourself and your Fiance, and capture some loving moments between the two of you before tying the knot. Engagement shoots are one of the most fun and creative shoots that you can have. The options on how you want your engagement to be captured are limitless. Do you have a place that is special to you and your fiance? Is there a theme that continues to pop up through out your lives together? Do you have a pet together that is considered a child of yours? These are all things that can be incorporated into an engagement shoot.

Your wedding day marks the beginning of an adventure of a lifetime with your other half. Long hours and much preparation have gone into the beginning of the next chapter of your life and the time has come to enjoy! Friends and family come together to celebrate with you, and together, build those memories you will want to re-live for years to come. Capturing those emotions, details, and love of your wedding day is a large part of this great event and it should not be a cause of any stress. I will be there documenting that part of your history from the set-up to the vows, to the reception. From the planned and posed memories, to the spontaneous candid shots, my goal is to capture the essence and beauty that is so unique to each wedding.
No two weddings are alike, which is why I like to meet (or videochat!!) with my couples and make sure that I am the best fit for what they are looking for, and that we come up with the best package for their wedding. My most popular package is $2800. Please contact me for all my packages and more information. I would love to meet over some coffee/tea (on me!) and discuss your wedding!

Jolana was our photographer for both our engagement photos, and our wedding on 10.13.17. I cannot possibly say enough positive things about her, except to say there is no one else I’ll ever have take photos for ANYTHING in my life! She was SO friendly, SO amazing in her willingness to work with my 6yr old stepson, who can be a pain for photos. She made my husband and I feel so comfortable, and neither of us are particularly great at taking pictures, but there are no photos from either shoot that I dislike! We have friends who got married a month before us, and they’re still waiting on their photos, while we already have all of ours to share with friends and family!
Seriously, if you want an AMAZINGLY talented, nice, just phenomenal photographer for your event, or even family photos, go with Jolana.
I am really late on this, but I definitely wanted to leave a review considering how awesome Jolana is. Our pictures are absolutely perfect. I think the photographer is the most important part of a wedding budget because, all you have left are the pictures. Jolana has such a good eye for a great picture and she’s so personable too! She made me and my husband feel comfortable, which helps with taking a great picture. Her assistant, Daria (not positive on the spelling) was great too! I am so glad we went with Jolana. Thank you so much!😁
I don’t even know where to begin for Jolana, she was AMAZING! from the second she walked in to the end of the night she was so helpful and energetic and just plain awesome. She’s done our engagement and wedding photos and both my husband and I love her! Her photography style is amazing and I specifically requested fun candid shots and she’s great at making us laugh, smile, etc. I cannot wait to get the rest of our photos back, but she’s a breeze to work with and seriously more than a photographer. She’s a friend, support system, anything helper for your whole day. We will definitely be using her again for our photography needs❤️
