let's be friends

It's so important to me that you find a photographer who is a perfect fit! I truly want us both to be freaking obsessed with each other. Let's get to know each other, dig into your wants and dreams, and make this as stress-free and exciting as possible! If you value an entire experience beyond just some pretty pictures (don’t worry, you’ll get plenty), let's grab coffee or a cocktail and kick this whole thing off!

book and plan

Once we decide we're a perfect fit, I'll send over a proposal and we'll make this whole thing officially official! *YAAAS* Time to plan all the fun details from engagement session, to custom wedding website, to your wedding timeline! You'll get helpful information on prepping for your sesh, planning the perfect timeline, and other helpful tips to make this easy and fun for ya!!

engagement session

YAY one of my fave parts of the experience! I'll guide you every step of the way from locations to outfits and more! Your job is easy - love each other wildly and just be in the moment! We’ll get to know each other better and get you super comfortable in front of the camera so you’re pros on your wedding day! Your session will be featured on my blog, and you’ll receive an online gallery of the images to download!

timeline chats

If you need help with anything from details to vendor recs or anything in between, I’m always here! Most importantly, planning your timeline together! This ensures the entire vendor team is fully prepared for every aspect of the day, so you can sleep easy knowing we've got it all covered! We'll kick off the countdown to your big day with a call to finalize details (wine is always welcome!)

wedding day!

It’s finally here! You get to marry your person and celebrate the best day ever with your loved ones! Soak in every moment and don't worry about a thing. My team has your timeline covered, so you two can enjoy every second! We'll capture the moments and tell the best story of your day! Vow to forever, laugh, cry, and party until your feet ache! I can’t wait to capture your love story!!!

gallery delivery

Woot woot, time to relive allll the feels from your perfect day! Within 90 days, you'll receive your online gallery of images! I'll send over tips for downloading, printing, and more! I always suggest a wine night snuggled up together as you look through your gallery for the first time! :) You'll be able to share the gallery link with friends and family, so they can enjoy in all of the excitement, too!

albums & prints

You can create a custom-designed heirloom wedding album with me! We'll start designing once you receive your gallery! It's so special to have printed images in your home and a beautiful album on your coffee table! You'll share these memories with friends and family for years to come. I highly recommend ordering prints and products to get all those pretty photos offline and into your home!

my heart behind it all

I'll be here as a helping hand, a cheerleader for your love, and a friend always. Oh, and of course, I'll capture all of that real love story goodness! This is about so much more than just beautiful images - it's about an experience. This milestone in your life deserves the absolute best care and attention, and I can't wait to help guide you through the entire process!

I want to make sure you feel amazing in front of my camera at all times, that you adore your final gallery, that the experience from first hello to final hugs on the night of your big day is genuinely enjoyable and unforgettable, and that I can make everything as stress-free as possible.

Here's the thing, I'm going to be a biiit more than just a random stranger who shows up on your wedding day. That's just really not my thing. I'm all about becoming friends so that I can work WITH you, not just for you. I want to know how you fell in love and how he proposed or what you're doing on a random Tuesday night while we text dog pics back and forth. When we're friends, I can create images that feel like who you actually are, so you can look back on them years from now and feel all the REAL feels.

It's all about connection - between us and between you two. I want to help build that up in you by giving you the permission to really be yourselves. THIS is your permission to do whatever YOU want for your big day. My people are different, quirky, unique, adventurous, wildly excited about life, always down for a good time with good drinks and even better people, and they're never upset about getting their feet a little dirty!

So, if adventure sounds like your game plan and you're up for wind-in-your-hair, mud on your feet, perfectly imperfect and unplanned moments with me, then it sounds like I'm your girl! I've got you covered on all the must-have photos like details, family portraits, and so on, but I'm all about capturing the real and unposed in there, as well.

I work super hard to get you crazy comfortable in front of my camera so I can capture those genuine, raw, real emotions. I'm all about having a good time, and my couples are the same – they're laid-back, edgy, unique, nontraditional, and just wildly in love! Pretty much, if you're doing your day YOUR way, we're going to get along well! ;) Are you ready for more?! Let's do thisss!

we're the perfect fit if you two are:

always looking for your next adventure

nontraditional and want a wedding that represents that!

laid-back & always down for a good time

not worried if your dress or shoes get dirty!

into boho, outdoorsy, edgy, quirky vibes

lovers of raw, real moments aka: no stiff, awkward posing

not about a classic, traditional church & ballroom wedding

looking for an experience, not just another wedding vendor

I can't even begin to say how amazing and talented Tori is. Seb and I have never had our photos taken, so I really didn't know how they would turn out... it’s incredible how perfectly Tori captured our love. I just can't thank her enough for being an amazing friend and even more for capturing this special chapter for us better than we thought could be possible.

Love you so much, and seriously thank you, thank you, thank you!!! You're incredible and we are sooo so happy!

"i didn't even get half way through the gallery and i literally started hysterically crying."

sabrina & sebastian

Not only is she incredibly talented and her pictures come out beautifully, but her personality is just as amazing as her skill set.

My husband and I are both not the most comfortable in front of the camera, but she made it so easy and enjoyable, we both loved her to death.

Having Tori as a photographer was one of the best parts of our wedding, hands down. Thank you again, Tori!!!

"i will never be able to say enough great things about tori as a person and as a photographer."

paola & nick

Thank you for the most beautiful wedding photos. Thank you for the lunch dates and phone calls to answer all of my questions. Thank you for coordinating the timeline and working with us to make a wonderful elopement. I will cherish these photos forever.

You captured all of the romance and gorgeous scenic background. I cannot wait to see the album in print. I can't wait to show our children, and grandchildren.

I love you and am so thankful for you. CANNOT BELIEVE I GET A ROUND 2 with you!!

"i cannot wait to see the album in print. i can't wait to show our children and grandchildren."

We are obsessed with how our photos came out, and the overall experience we had working with Tori was amazing. It was important for us to have somebody we were comfortable with so it didn’t feel staged and posed on our big day, and she really is the perfect person for that.

Our family and friends thought Tori was extremely sweet and kind, and she made everybody feel comfortable in front of the camera. She helped us plan out the day, it felt like at times she was a wedding planner! She is very responsive, genuinely excited for you and makes sure you're happy and having a good time!

"it was important for us to have somebody we were comfortable with so it didn’t feel staged and posed"

carly & monica

Tori was an absolute joy to work with! Aside from being incredibly talented, Tori made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera which really allowed us to be ourselves and get THE most beautiful, authentic photos. :)

Tori was super helpful throughout the entire process, made sure to ask for our input, and was more than willing to hike up and down mountains to get photos that one could only dream of. We truly could not have picked a better photographer and are so grateful for the amazing images she captured! We truly could not say enough about her!

"more than willing to hike up and down mountains to get photos that one could only dream of."

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?

Ooh, I love this one! My main goal is to always have my couples feeling comfortable, confident, and most importantly, having fun the entire shoot. I know being in front of a camera can feel awkward at first, but that is why I play games, get my couples moving, and keep you two laughing and in love always! Genuine over posed shots any day – I want these photos to show your real personality! I edit my images with warm, deep tones that compliment nature and skin tones and keep my couples looking golden and sunkissed!

Seriously, take me anywhere and I’m yours!! Traveling is such a passion of mine, and being able to capture the sweetest couples in incredible locations makes my heart SO full. Please feel free to take me along with you on your world travels, and we will figure out the logistics based on the location!

Many of my travel babes are interested in eloping, as well! If that sounds like you, come check out my elopement information here!

HOW WILL I KNOW IF WE ARE A GOOD FIT?

Such a good question!! I love meeting and chatting with every couple before booking, so we can go over all the important questions and details you will want to know to make sure we are a great fit! I am here to help you and guide you along the way!

HOW MANY IMAGES WILL WE RECEIVE?

As a minimum, for weddings, I deliver at least 500 digital images. For sessions, I deliver at least 60 digital images. I don’t put a set number on how many you will receive, because I believe you deserve ALL of the incredible photos from your day. I never leave anything good out, and I don’t put a cap or limit on what I will deliver! Every wedding is different and varies based on the events of each individual wedding day! If I see an image that you will love, I won’t keep it from you, promise!

WHAT IS THE TURNAROUND TIME?

For engagement or portrait sessions, you can expect a 4 - 6 week turnaround for the fully-edited, high-resolution online gallery. For weddings, my turnaround is usually 6 to 8 weeks for the fully-edited, high-resolution online gallery! Busy seasons may affect this timing slightly, but I do my best to return your galleries as soon as I can!

CAN I HAVE THE RAW FILES?

I don't release my RAW files for a few reasons! First, editing is half of the magic that goes into these images, and without it, the images are only halfway done. I want your images to look and feel like my style. To ensure that I protect my art and brand, I only deliver images in the editing style that you hired me for. Also, RAW files are huge and not compatible with most standard computer programs – you may not be able to open them if you’re unfamiliar with the format. I deliver high-resolution JPEG images that are easy to view, download, and print on any computer!

WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR FOR OUR PHOTOS?

I will send you plenty of information to prepare for your session, so don’t worry! I have blog posts, Pinterest boards, and style guides to help you look and feel amazing! The short answer – wear something that is comfortable and your style. If you are the type of people who would rather sit around in sweats all day and binge Netflix shows, then it probably wouldn’t make much sense for you to wear something super fancy. We will be in touch as we start planning your sesh, and I will help you choose your outfits based on the location and time of year we are shooting at!

DO YOU PROVIDE VIDEO SERVICES?

I’m a huge believer in handing off the job to an expert instead of doing something myself sub-par. Video is not for this chica, no way! However, I know some INCREDIBLE wedding vendors from all different parts of the industry who I would love to refer to you! Videographers, calligraphers, florists, hair stylists, makeup artists, decor, rentals, etc. You name it, I’m sure I can find you some super amazing vendors to spice up your day!!

DO YOU OFFER ALBUMS?

I’m SO glad you asked – I love knowing that these special images are going to live somewhere other than in a folder on your computer! I am a huge fan of the tangible, printed form, so I do offer beautiful linen-covered albums. Once you receive your gallery and confirm that you would like an album, I choose a huge chunk of the gallery to send off to an album designer who will create a design for you! You are able to make revisions twice, and once it is perfect, we send it off to be printed! In a few weeks, you have a gorgeous heirloom to look back on for years to come!

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO BOOK YOU?

As soon as possible! Wedding dates get booked very far in advance, and it breaks my heart to have to turn someone away because I’m already booked! We can make things officially official once we have a signed contract and retainer in place, so if you definitely want me to be a part of your day, I would suggest reaching out as soon as you have your wedding date!
