"For a second session: Our beach session, I couldn’t stop smiling. Jailyn captured our silly girl in every single photo and I love the candid - ness of everything. It looks natural, happy, and again beautiful lighting/angles. Every single photo, we smiled and giggled looking at our daughter and that is just who she is 24/7. I’m sooo happy jailyn was able to capture her. ❤️”

Jailyn did a fabulous job on our photoshoot! We wanted a low-stress, relaxed experience that would give us great pictures and that’s exactly what Jailyn delivered. She took the time to get to know us and then guided us through the photo session so that it was fun and natural, not awkward. She was punctual, professional, and a warm, kind person. We are thrilled with the beach sunset photos we got! Highly recommend her.

frequently asked questions

* What is a micro wedding/intimate wedding and why should I have one?
A micro wedding or intimate wedding is a wedding with under 50 of your closest loved ones. It is a cross between an elopement and a big, traditional wedding. It is a macro experience for the couple who wants to really focus and spend the majority of their time and attention on the moments, and smaller details. It's not the place to cut corners but to create a unique and memorable experience for yourself and your guests. 

* Does an elopement have to be a secret?
NO!!! Let's get this myth cleared up ASAP! An elopement is typically just the couple, the officiant, the photographer (hey, that's me!) and can include a few loved ones (or not, it's up to you!). Yes, you can call your mom and sister before-hand and let them know. Yes, you can have your best friend there. And yes, you should plan this sweeping romantic adventure several months in advance. 

* Why do packages start at 4 hours and not just 15 minutes?
Bottom line up front, just because there aren't 150 guests attending the wedding, doesn't mean it isn't the start of a new adventure, new lives, and the journey into marriage.
It's still a BIG day! You may be walking barefoot on the beach, hiking a mountain (and changing at the top) or enjoying a jaw-dropping intimate wedding with ALL THE DETAILS, either way, your day deserves to be honored and treated with all the love of any wedding. 

Details of the rings, flowers, shoes, and every other beautiful detail you chose, all deserve to be documented. Images of you getting ready as well as your chosen details help to tell the story of your day. Not to mention the ceremony, couples portraits, and any celebration afterwards. This takes time. I'm here to tell your whole story, because it's a good one!

* What's included in my photography package?
Ready to book? Yes friend! I'm delighted to be by your side on such an important day! I'll be here for you and provide you with:
- an engagement guide 
- a free consult to discuss locations, ideas, and how you want your day to feel
- I will even create a "mood-board" as a visual reference for your big day!
-Another fun meeting to discuss adding in custom sessions and products such as: 
       - an engagement session
       - bridal boudoir session
       - "day-after" lifestyle session
       - wall art, albums, and of course, announcement cards!
