WHAT'S YOUR BUSINESS NAME ABOUT?
I'm all for capturing hopeful snapshots + storylines through a camera lens, pairing photographs with thoughtfully curated words. Sweet Justice started with a love of people - I shot my first wedding in exchange for a donation to my service trip to Nepal. Ever since then, a mission was born.
Saying YES to that wedding launched me into a lifetime of taking portraits, world travel, + crafting stories. These adventures led me to a purposeful passion; providing people with beautiful photography so that in turn, I can capture social justice stories.
HOW DO YOU CULTIVATE SOCIAL JUSTICE?
Sweet Justice is a Love Gives Way vendor - a platform for brides + grooms partnering with vendors + causes fighting sex trafficking.
Seeing an end to the sex trade is my deepest desire, and when you book with SJ, a portion of your wedding expenses go toward fighting it.
Additional collaborations include Life for the Innocent, Fight the Red Light, Interfaith Youth Core, The Well, Genesis Coffee, Nuance Chocolate, No Limits Ministry, River Song Waldorf School, and Young Life Expeditions.
My nonprofit work ranges from pro bono/discounted merchandise + event shoots to monthly photos from nonprofits' activities. I also feature individuals on my blog making a difference in the community in accessible, simple ways. My message is hope + action.
Check out the justice blog to see stories on nonprofits, ethical businesses, profiles, and movements, all with a goal of social justice.
If there are any kind of photographic needs a nonprofit has for their website/social media/design, I would love to collaborate in that. Contact me + let's get dreaming!
WHAT IS YOUR PREFERRED STYLE?
My style carries a depth of emotional connection, movement, and candid moments. I feel most creative with my camera at in-home sessions or outdoors, in natural lighting.
Each snapshot tells of a lifestyle and how your grand story meshed together, bringing to light a celebration of life.
My goal is cultivating a space for you to feel comfortable + cared for, and I love capturing what your lifestyle looks like.
WHAT ARE YOUR RATES?
As an artist dedicated to quality, I believe your invaluable, timeless story deserves the investment. All packages are customizable to fit your unique budget + needs. Value-based pricing determines how much time I need to put into your package. Portrait sessions range from $250 - $500, and wedding packages begin at $1,500. Contact me for availability + a personalized quote.
WHAT'S INCLUDED IN YOUR PACKAGES?
I believe when you open your wedding package, it should bring you right back to your wedding experience - and that involves a lot more than photographs! This is about your story, and stories are the textures surrounding you, the smells of the scene, the foliage + the little details.
When you open your package, a disc with all the photographs, prints to hang in your home, and a personalized, handcrafted wedding collection.
I'll send you an online album where you can order high quality, inexpensive prints from a local company. If you want an album, I offer luxurious 10x10 Italian luxe leather photo albums with a 15-page spread and names embossed on the cover.
