It's not about pictures; it's about an experience to        


I'm the kind of gal who will do anything to make your day incredible; my past clients (aka, new besties) tell me there was just that, an EXPERIENCE. So I want you to walk away from the session feeling connected and excited. Like you made some incredible memories that you get to remember forever, then I'm your gal. I want to show the authentic love and connection between you and your partner, the natural and raw, intimate relationship you cherish. I want to know the story of your love and capture that. But also be prepared to dance, move and get your goofy on. 

the booking process

Booking with me means gaining a new friend. I'm not like other wedding vendors who want to show up, work on your event, and leave. I want to get to know YOU truly. Throughout the planning process, I will be sending you a few questionnaires to get to know you and your partner and what makes you, well... YOU! I'm always an email, phone call, or text away from answering a question or assisting in any way. I will assist in timeline planning and creating an experience for you to sit back and enjoy your special day! I'm here for you from start to finish (and beyond)!

You might be my client if: 

  • You care more about how your wedding day feels than it looks.
  • You enjoy the raw, honest & candid moments of life. 
  • You LOVE jamming out to music.
  • You listen to far too many true crime podcasts
  • You have a bucket list of places in the world you want to explore.
  • You live for the carefree feeling of life.
  • You think the idea of perfection lies in the happiness created around you and the simplicities of life.
  • When you see puppies, it takes ALL you can do not to run up & snuggle them. 
  • You think chips, salsa, and guacamole with margs constitute a meal.
  • You're dying to know, HOW DO I MAKE YOU MY GIRL?

I live in Wichita, KS - however, traveling is my JAM. In my eyes, there's no destination too far to capture images.

Image quantities will vary based on packages selected, but never fret, your gallery will reflect your full day or session! But for a quick reference:
  • Sessions on average will include 20 hand edited digital images per thirty minutes spent together!
  • Elopements & weddings on average will include 40-50 images per hour spent together!

Nope! Sure don't. The images I deliver to you will be edited based on my editing style and true to my brand. 

During the time of booking a non-refundable retainer will be paid to lock in your date! Following that, the remainder will be due upon the week of your shoot. If needed, payment options are always available! 

Easy peasy! Fill out the contact form! Once I get your inquiry in my inbox, I can start by checking availability for the date you're requesting and we'll do some chatting to make sure I am the perfect fit for your photography needs. If I have your date available and we're a match made in heaven, BAM! You'll be booked!

I will not book you unless I am CONFIDENT I will be at your wedding. However, if and I mean IF something absolutely uncontrollably crazy happens and I cannot be there, I will send a photographer I know and TRUST to capture your big day. All images will still be edited by me so you are getting the style you're looking

I get it, things happen. However, here is my policy, if your date is cancelled, the non-refundable deposit at the time of booking, is just that - non-refundable. If you reschedule your date, I can work with you in regards to my availability and there is the potential to transfer your deposit, provided I have the new date available.  I want to be able to work with you as best as possible, so just chat it up with me if this arises! 

Phew! I've been doing photography as a hobby since 2017. Little backstory, I was living in Nashville, TN and planning my grandparents 60th wedding anniversary party back in Kansas and thought...this is something that NEEDS to be captured & I want to be the one to do it. I ran out, bought a camera, and proceeded to learn EVERYTHING I could about photography. Flash forward to now, I've fallen in love with being behind the lens and love continuing to grow as a photographer.

I am strictly a Lightroom girl! Meaning, I edit lighting and tend to pride myself on only editing out "things that won't be there next week" [i.e. pesky blemishes...cause we ALL got them]. My brand is based on raw and real, so I stick to that! I pride myself on flattering prompts and poses because I'm here to make YOU LOOK GOOD!! [ already do!]

Weather is absolutely unpredictable, however, I have done many a session and wedding in the rain, snow, hot, cold, sunny & cloudy! Sometimes the unplanned makes for the best adventures. However, if for some reason weather conditions are absolutely NOT optimal for your session, we can work to reschedule your date!

I GOT CHUUU! I have an outfit guide I will send to you as well as some Pinterest board inspiration depending on the type of shoot we are going for to give you optimal color scheme ideas and what to look for when choosing outfits! Then I'll probably ask you to bring a few options to the location to make sure we have you looking the best for the location and weather!
 Obviously, if it's your wedding day - you rock that wedding dress and you're going to look GORGEOUS!

I don't regularly offer discounts. However, sometimes if I'm looking to squeeze in some sessions while I'm traveling last minute, there is the potential due to the fact that it will be last minute! Stay tuned to all of my socials for any potential offers on sessions!

I like to get galleries out AS SOON AS I POSSIBLY CAN! However, depending on volume of sessions and traveling it can sometimes be a bit. I guarantee all galleries back within 2-4 weeks for portrait sessions, and 8-12 weeks for elopements and weddings. 

HOWEVER, you will ALWAYS have a sneak peek in your inbox, on socials and sometimes on the blog within 48 hours of your session!

Travel expenses will vary based on the type of session. We can chat about your specific needs and pricing can be quoted based on type of session/package and location!

YES! I have worked in the event industry for awhile and planning is my jam. Keep in mind, I am NOT your full fledged wedding coordinator/planner but I can assist you in many things in regards to your big day and planning timelines for all of your photo needs during the day as well as providing input to your planning. 

I absolutely LOVE photographing love! This makes weddings, elopements, & couples my passion. However, I do occasionally offer other session types. Shoot me an inquiry and we can chat!

"mattie is our first choice when it comes to getting pictures! she is so easy to work with & the sweetest soul! we will continue to recommend her over and over again!

"she was so amazing with our kids! she made the whole experience so easy! we got our finished pictures back so fast! we will definitely be using her again"
