Beautiful reminders of places we’ve been and people we’ve loved.
it's officially party time.
I'm here to create a safe space for my couples to be themselves, and to express their love exactly how they always imagined.
I believe experiences and memories are far more valuable than material things. I believe celebrations are about the people you're with, not where you are or what things look like.
Everyone should have their love celebrated, and I'm here to make that a reality, and to document the story from beginning to end.
how it felt is what matters.
Weddings are my favorite thing on earth. The fact that I get to use my art to document one of the most important days in people's lives is not lost on me. I do not take it for granted -- it is a honor I hold with sincere gratitude.
I want you to be confident in your choice.
These are the photos that not only you, but your children and grandchildren will cherish. These are the photos that will tell your love story. These are the photos you will look at when memories fade. And that is something I take very seriously.
Photography is worth investing in. But if you've made it this far, that's not something I have to tell you. Rest assured that your memories are safe. I want you to look back on your photos, and be proud of them and who you are in them. When you work with me, I strive to make all of this a reality. Plus, I work very hard so that all of my couples can have the laid-back and stress-free experience they deserve. To me, it is a myth that weddings have to be stressful.

what's in it for you?
I have proudly added film photography to my packages. I shoot in both 35mm and 120mm formats, and I speak with each of my clients about their priorities before the wedding. If a couple loves film, and wants a lot of film coverage, awesome! If not, that's great too. It's just something extra I take along with me for those that want it:no extra costs.
I started offering film because it has a "perfect imperfection" and a natural nostalgia about its quality that I find fits my couples. Most images will still be shot and delivered digitally, but I love capturing passing moments with film.
Pricing + Packages
As a documentary wedding photographer, it is my desire to tell your whole story. This is why I absolutely love being with my couples for multi-day coverage. Because, let's be real: sometimes your celebration is more than just a day. With this package, I will cover up to two days of your nuptials.
Ideal for documenting: welcome and rehearsal dinners, day-after brunches, extra gatherings, multi-day celebrations, or parties that just don't stop.
The full day
I believe in telling your whole story when I can, and that's why 90 percent of my couples hire me for the full day.
This will start with the quiet and full-of-anticipation photos of you getting ready for your day, your sentimental details, and will end with your party photos or grand exit at the end of the evening.
This is a sweet-spot for those wanting wedding coverage, but mostly want "the things in the middle." Think the ceremony, family photos, and couple portraits. You'll still have time for a few things like your first dance and cake cutting, too!
2020 showed us there doesn't have to be a huge audience for a beautiful union (or a big party). This package is reserved for those having elopements or intimate weddings under 30 guests. Because all weddings are different, I prefer to give a custom quote based on your specific needs. Weekend pricing begins at $2500 for 4 hours, and weekday pricing begins at $1600 for 4 hours.

Do you travel?
Do you offer a second photographer?
Certainly! I travel for many weddings (sometimes even out of the country!). If you're looking at having a destination wedding -- or even if you'd like suggestions for where to go -- I am your girl. For destination weddings, I will give you a comprehensive and inclusive quote that includes all of my travel: no bills after-the-fact.
I do! I can cover most of my weddings by myself. However, if you're having a large wedding (over 175 guests), I recommend hiring a second. I also recommend them in cases where you know you want a lot of candids, extra film photos, or if you know you need multiple angles of certain aspects of your wedding. This is definitely something we can talk about on the phone, and I can give you my professional opinion on whether or not I think you need a second!
How do we receive our photos?
What package suits us best?
I use an online gallery system called Pic-Time. It houses your images in an easy-to-use format where you can both download hi-res files, and share the gallery with loved ones. You can also purchase prints, frames and albums directly from the gallery itself.
I always like to hop on a quick call to chat about your specific weddings and needs, because simply: every wedding and couple is different. I can guide you through what your wedding day might look like, and we can talk about the very best approach to have it all beautifully documented.
You're the one for us! How do we move forward?
What camera gear do you use? Are you insured?
To make things official, I require a signed contract between us and a 50% retainer towards the full amount.
I use the Canon Mirrorless System: Canon R6 bodies and high-end lenses that will gorgeously preserve your wedding day. I also carry around a Polaroid and several other vintage film cameras. I have backups of my gear and business insurance (if your venue needs proof of insurance, just let me know!).
Throughout all of the chaos of 2020 she was a calming and reassuring voice. Flexible and accommodating, she worked with us to make sure that our day was as special as it could be. Savanna has a very down to earth approach that feels authentic and warm. It was important to us to capture the day as it was, us as we are, and Savanna delivered on that for us. The pictures are so incredibly beautiful. We feel so lucky to have such a lovely way to remember our wedding.

There are genuinely not enough characters available to me in this review space to accurately express what an incredible photographer and human being Savanna is. From her extraordinary kindness and graciousness towards us, to her ability to capture the most incredible micro-moments in both our engagement photos and our elopement, Savanna has blown us away again and again. If you do nothing else for your photography needs, invest in Savanna's outstanding talent and I assure you, you will not be disappointed. She has become not just the person we've come to trust to capture our most special moments, but also a dear friend. Do not hesitate, do not pass go, hire this incredible small business owner!!!
- Peyton + Brian
We knew Savanna was special when we hired her, and she exceeded our expectations beyond what we ever could have imagined. She’s great at communication from the time you contact her to the photo delivery, she had a special way of making us feel comfortable in front of the camera, and the work she delivers is truly beautiful and a one of a kind. She and her assistant photographer captured our wedding day exactly how it happened and we will always be able to feel the joy of that day just by looking at the images. We are so happy we chose her to capture our day!
- Olivia + Miles
I know this was probably a lot of information, so let me know when you're ready for a phone call so I can answer any and all of your questions! I want you to feel 100% confident in your wedding day decisions.
If you're sure and ready to go, I'll send along a proposal. Once it's signed and paid, all we have left is to party plan.
Let's do this thing!
