“She put us right at ease and gave great direction. Her pictures not only captured the scene, but also the spirit of the day”
“Petra is a talent like no other. She can calm a nervous bride, and make her feel at ease. She has her looking and feeling beautiful in every shot. The images she captures embody the feeling of the day… that is not something that many photographers can do. I’d reccomend her 100 times over”
“If I could give a 20-star rating, I would! Petra is simply the BEST photographer with whom I have ever worked, and so multi-talented. I cannot recommend her enough!”
“Petra is such a sweet person and has a way about her that’s calming and brings some peace to your wedding. She showed up on time and did everything and then some without me even having to say a word. Petra and her pictures exceeded my expectations!”
You met the love of your life, and now you’re planning for that magical day of commitment and celebration. It will be the first day of the rest of your lives and you want it to be the perfect day for the people you are, and the people you love. Weddings are not one size fits all. Your plans will be as unique as your relationship, and I want to make sure that your photography reflects your own romance in the most joyfully authentic way.
Planning for your wedding photography will be easy and fun. I love meeting with my couples and discussing your story and your hopes and dreams.

On your wedding day, I will be there to capture every big moment, every small moment, and to make sure you’re laughing and feeling amazing from the makeup to the champagne and everything in between. (Bonus? I’m really good with veils, bobby pins, bustles, and have been known to sew up a torn suit and a button or two)
The best part though, will be your stunning personal gallery filled with vibrant memories, for you to share, download, and look back on for the rest of your happily ever after.
