We love your work! We would love to chat with you about our wedding day.

Wonderful! The next step is to contact me.

Then I will let you know if I am available on your wedding date, and I can send you my pricing. We can schedule a free phone consultation or video chat to discuss your wedding plans.

How do we reserve your wedding date with you?

Once you have selected the best package for you, then I will send you a link to your online contract. You will be able to pay the retainer with either a credit card or PayPal.

I require a $1000 non-refundable retainer for weddings. The retainer will be applied to your final balance.

Note: If you are getting married at San Francisco City Hall, a $250 retainer is due when you sign your contract.

I am really excited to work with you on your wedding!
