Philosophy is a way of thinking about the world, the universe, and society. It works by asking very basic questions about the nature of human thought, the nature of the universe, and the connections between them. The ideas in philosophy are often general and abstract. I value vulnerability, emotion and artistry. Developing imagery that exposes these things, is what I live for. I strive to be an artist whos work expresses depth to the world. I like to establish a one on one connection with my subjects, so that the final images are both meaningful and captivatingly vulnerable.
WE'LL GUIDE YOU THROUGH ANY PROCESS & ANSWER ANY QUESTION
I would like for you to know what its like to work with me & set expectations for the both of us throughout the process. My hope is that working with me is consistently three things: collaborative, simplistic and fun!
Most people have very little if any experience of being in front of a camera, and that's ok. We'll guide you.
You’re getting MARRIED, so lets have fun! I try not to take myself, or my profession too seriously — at least where it counts. The last thing I want to feel like at your wedding is a vendor... I’m a friend who happens to also be a professional wedding photographer. We will have a kick-ass time, I promise.
My second word is “simplistic”. My shooting philosophy stems from the age-old “less is more” mantra. I’m a pretty simple person and believe that creating timeless photos is more important than timely photos. Trends come and go, so it’s important for me to not rely on those to make okay photos, but great photos. Props, extremely staged moments, and “epic” lighting can feel fabricated and take away from the actual authenticity of the day, so I encourage couples to focus on what’s in front of them.
I will always, always be here to collaborate with you along the way. I like to take time to get to know each of my clients needs & wants and things that I may not know about your wedding day. From the time you get this guide, to the time I’m delivering photos, I want you to feel comfortable chatting with me about different things throughout the wedding planning process.

How does the booking process work?
Get in touch with us!
The first step towards booking, is to fill out the contact form and tell me all the things, the more the merrier. I will bounce back with an immediate full pricing guide and then a link to book a coffee chat. We will then hop on the phone to see if we are a good fit.
The booking stage
We have chatted on the phone, the investment feels right and so does the connection, we are ready to do the damn thang! This is when you tell me it's a go and I go and manually set up your client portal, woo hooo!! You will then sign the contract, make your payment and we are set!! We then become instant friends! Ha! No, but really!!
We will be in contact way more than you will imagine. I will be sharing every single tip imaginable for your session, or event and sending out timelines, to even sharing with you where to find my blogs made for future brides and grooms. This is the excited stage where everything becomes so fun and real!! This is when we have a BLAST!
Josie is the absolute best!!!! She’s helpful, insightful, and a complete pro at photography. She gave direction and input when asked but also didn’t push us. She matched our vibe perfectly. Being photographers ourselves, we had confidence that she would capture everything that we wanted perfectly and that we wouldn’t have to direct or manage her too much. Her style is beautiful and classic without being too trendy. Josie is accommodating — let us change our date to a year later because of COVID! — and I felt fine asking her for certain things. She made our wedding day better and stress-free; her presence felt more like that of a friend than a photographer. I would recommend her to every single person getting married; I can’t imagine having anyone else capture our day!
Josie has been such a pleasure to work with! She is super responsive, friendly, fun, and so very skilled at her job!! She knew how to make my husband and I feel comfortable during our session. She also knew so many great poses and guided us every step of the way. You can tell she really cares about her clients and about delivering quality work. We are in awe of our photos. They came out so beautiful!! We look forward to her capturing our wedding next year. Book Josie, you will not be disappointed!!
I almost started crying at work looking at how beautiful Josie's pictures are. My Husband and I both love them so incredibly much, and it was such a pleasure working with Josie. We are so thankful for all of her hard work!!! I can’t wait to get some of these printed and hung up around the house. I sent them to both of our families, and everyone loves them!! Thanks again Josie!! I really can’t get over how happy these pictures make me. They’re. So. AMAZING! Josie is amazing!!
