What type of weddings do you shoot?

I specialize in elopements (often 10-12 guests or less) and portraits. Most of the elopements I document take place outdoors - at state parks, on trails, along the shoreline, in backyards, or anywhere in nature - or indoors in cabins or courthouses.

For four years, I shot weddings most weekends in the busy season and I come to elopements as a seasoned professional. I absolutely enjoyed documenting weddings, but I found myself drawn to the intimacy and intentionality of elopements. I fell in love with them, and after a lot of thought, 2020 is my first year offering only elopement coverage for vows. I’m so excited for this transition in my business and to give elopements my 100% love and attention!

I’m interested in eloping or having a session along the North Shore or Northern MN but am not familiar with the area.

No worries! We’ll start with a conversation about what is important to YOU and what you are envisioning for your session or elopement. From there, I’ll recommend location options for you to look over, and we’ll choose the perfect spot together. When we start dreaming out your session or elopement, I’ll also be taking into consideration sunset/sunrise times, parking options, trail conditions and weather. I’m constantly scouting out new trails / overlooks so rest assured we will find something perfect for YOU! I also love to know if you have any locations that are special to you and your relationship.

Do you shoot outside of Duluth and the North Shore?

Yes! I travel across Minnesota and welcome out of state travel. Please inquire for travel fees for your location!

How will I receive my images and when?

Within 3 weeks, I'll deliver images via a beautiful and personalized online gallery that includes a print release. From here you'll be able to print, share and download your images as you wish. All images are fully edited with high resolution and are non-watermarked.

When can I book you?

I book up to 6 months in advance for elopements.

Do you use a second shooter?

At times, yes! I use a second shooter depending on the day’s timeline and if there will be multiple locations throughout your day. My second shooters are along mostly to assist me, as well as to capture different angles or shots during ceremonies. I only bring trusted, chill folks with me, and we will chat about this before your day :)

Can you refer local vendors for hair, makeup or flowers?

Yes! Just ask - I have so many wonderful names to share with you.

Do you have a studio space?

I don’t have a studio space at this time, and my portrait sessions take place outdoors using natural light.

Do you do other types of photography?

YES! I share film and documentary projects over at @hosannairene.

I’d love to book or find out more! What are the next steps?

Whoooo! So excited to meet you and hear your story! The first step is for you to fill out the contact form, and then we’ll set up a time for a chill Skype or in-person conversation. It’s so important to me to learn about about what is important to you and your relationship, what your photography dreams are, and have a chance to go over any questions or thoughts that you have.

I require a nonrefundable retainer fee of 50% and a signed contract to lock your date on my calendar.

I believe in keeping things simple, and for that reason I share both the contract and invoice electronically - no scanning or printing necessary. You’ll be able to view the contract and invoice from any device and have access to both at any time.

Throughout our time together, I’m just a phone or email away - consider me a friend and a resource!
