*This is
NOT a
wedding
factory

You’re not there to model for my portfolio and I’m not there to churn out a shot list.

You’re there to enjoy your wedding—whatever it looks like for you. I’m there to document it with all the heart it deserves.  

From stolen glances to cheeky kisses and getting loose on the dance floor. From tender hugs to tearful whispers. When you look through your photos, those memories will live on. It’ll be as though you’re right there doing it all over again.

Your day isn’t
a script to
follow, but an EXPERIENCE
to embrace.

I build relationships with my couples from our very first phone call, all the way past the wedding day. The more I know you, the better I can capture who you are in your photos. We’re on a discovery together.

I’m there to watch and listen as you are your truest selves, and to take the photos that will feel like you did.

Whether you want me to fade into the background snapping candid shots, or brave the middle of the dance floor, consider me your chameleon. I’ll be behind the lens, capturing it all.

These are the photos you will look at when memories fade.

“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 one of a kind.

Savanna 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!”

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.

Super 8 is 8mm analog cinematic film (think rolls of film from the movie theater!). They were typically used as home video cameras in the 60s and 70s—which is why they feel so immediately nostalgic.

If you book a Super 8 package, I’ll record your event on my little Super 8 camera. Be prepared: it makes just about the cutest cranking noise you ever did hear. Then, I ship off the film to be professionally developed, processed, and scanned into a digital format. I’ll then edit the digitized film for you into a 30-60 second trailer and a feature length film, usually between 3-5 minutes depending on the coverage. You’ll also get the raw, unedited film as a keepsake.

Super 8 is normally silent but I will edit the film to music (if you wish)—always open to suggestions for what music y'all love! If you want messages, vows, or other audio captured to be edited over the final film, we can add that on.

* What exactly is super 8 film and how does it work?

next

I consider my style to be first and foremost photojournalistic. While I'll still pose and direct you (and take group + family photos!), my heart lies in the unexpected moments that "stitch" your wedding day together. As far as coloration and editing, I have an authentic and bold approach: natural and timeless for years to come.

* What is your photography style?

next

Nearly 90 percent of my couples hire me for full-day wedding coverage: from the quiet moments of getting ready, to the grand exit at the end of the evening. I like this because, again, my focus is on your full story. Granted, every wedding day looks entirely different and, for this reason, it's best we get to know each other and determine the best coverage for you. I always give sincere and honest feedback when it comes to deciding on the ideal plan for your wedding photography.

* What type of photography coverage should we get?

next

HELL yes, I do. If you're booking for a destination location, I will send you a detailed proposal for your specific wedding day (or days!). This price will always include travel to and from all locations (including car, flights, hotels, etc.). I will never send you a dollar-for-dollar bill after the fact. Honestly, it's easier for both of us!

*Do you travel?

next

I'll always send you a sneak peak within a couple of days of your wedding—I know you're excited to spread the news! After that, you can expect your full, edited gallery within 6-8 weeks. I use a gallery system called Pic-Time, where you can download and share all of your images digitally. Plus, you can make prints, albums and frames all directly from the gallery.

* When and how do we receive
our photos?

next

I usually book between 12-18 months in advance. I recommend reaching out as soon as you have your date and location secured.

* When should we reach out if we're interested in booking you?

next

Ready to get started?! Please complete my inquiry form and I'll be in touch ASAP. From there, we'll set up a phone call to get to know each other better. Once we've decided we're the perfect fit for each other, I just require a signed contract and 30% retainer towards your full booking amount.
