For engagement sessions, you'll receive your photos within two weeks. Your wedding gallery and photos will be ready within 4-6 weeks of your wedding date.


Whether we're shooting your engagement session, wedding, or both, this is where the magic happens. We'll go over timelines, locations, and details together.


First and foremost, reach out to see if we are a good fit for each other. When we are, we'll take care of the  contract and deposit and get your date(s) on the calendar.

All of my collections include 8 hours of coverage, but I work with you on your timeline to see how many hours we'll need from start to finish. If we end up needing to add an hour (or a few), no problem, each additional hour of coverage is $200/hour.

Can we get more than 8 hours of coverage?

Yes forever and always! All of my collections include a second photographer. I have been working with the same photographers for years and years so we know each other's flows and systems. 

Do you work with a second photographer?

Ahhhh, if I could have a dollar for every time I've heard this. The point is, YOU'RE NOT ALONE. Most people don't get professional photos on a regular basis and don't know what to do in front of a camera. No worries, i love creating an experience that is not only comfortable for you but is also super fun!  

What if we're super awkward in photos?

I am based in Hartland, Michigan, but travel all over Michigan AS WELL AS the United States AS WELL AS the world for weddings, elopements, and sessions. You can view my 2021 travel schedule here, but I would love to discuss your location if it isn't listed or you have different timing!

Where are you based and do you travel?


OMG I almost cringe even writing this (and knocking on wood) because I have never missed a wedding in my 13 years of shooting. Unless I am LITERALLY on my death bed, I will be at your wedding. If, heaven forbid, something happened, I have associate and second shooters that I have been working with for years and fully trust.

What if you can't make it on my wedding day?

For sure! I love doing all kinds of couples sessions (engagement, newlywed, anniversary, maternity, just because)! You don't have to have a future wedding to book a couples session.

Do you offer JUST engagement sessions?

My rates are not flexible or negotiable. I schedule a very limited amount of weddings per year and I already have to turn away many couples as it is. 

Are your rates flexible?

Yes ABSOLUTELY! When we go over your timeline, we always include a chunk of time before or after the ceremony for posed family photos. I will work with you on special requests and family combinations.

Do you take any posed family photos?


For engagement sessions, you'll receive your gallery within two weeks. For weddings, you'll receive your gallery 5-6 weeks from the wedding date (with an immediate download access for your images). Your album design and print process will take about 3 weeks.

What is your turnaround time?

For a typical 8 hour wedding, you will receive 500-700 photos. If we have more hourly coverage (that doesn't include driving), you will receive more. For an engagement session, you will receive around 100 photos.

How many photos will we receive?

I will always retain the copyright to all of my photos. But when you purchase the digital images, you receive a full print/use release to make prints, albums, share on social media, etc. Basically, you're just not allowed to sale or alter the photos in any way.

What rights do I have with the digital images?

Yep! Your entire collection of photos is culled through one by one and the final selections are edited to look like what you see on my website and social media. 

Do you edit all of the photos?


The only two things I need to secure your wedding date on my calendar are the wedding contract and the deposit. The deposit is $1000 and that full amount will go toward your wedding collection. Please click here if you're ready to chat!

How do we secure you for our date?

I will never tell my couples that they HAVE to have a first look. Your day should be your vision and what you've dreamed of for years. However, if you have a late ceremony (late afternoon or evening), I suggest doing a first look, otherwise you won't have time for bridal party, family, and bride/groom photos before cocktail hour and the reception.

Do I need a first look?

I have a list of must-have shots I get at every wedding. However, we go over your final details a month or two before the wedding and if you have some specific requests that I wouldn't normally know about or have some wedding photo inspiration, I would love for you to pass those along!

Can we give you a list of shots?

Although I love doing video as a hobby, this isn't something I offer to clients right now. If you need suggestions, I have some faves that I love their work and love working with! 

Do you provide video services?


I can’t say enough positive things about Jean because honestly, her work speaks for itself. Jean is an incredible, dynamic, powerhouse of a photographer. She has the gift of putting her subjects at ease while capturing their pure emotions. From our engagement photos to our wedding photos, Jean has given us the ability to relive the best memories from this time in our lives and we’ll cherish that forever.

We could not be happier with our wedding photos! Jean was fun and easy to work with. We really wanted to focus on being in the moment, so it meant so much to us to have a photographer that we trusted to capture the day in such an authentic and beautiful way. We still get so many compliments on our wedding photos and hope to work with her again in the future!

shannon + bobby

The images she captured became the stars of the night. The essence of love, devotion, joy, and celebration just beams from each photo! She’s so beyond talented and cares so immensely and has the most insane vision. Because of her we get to relive our wedding everyday through the images all over our house!
