"never knew there was a love like this before"

I get so excited for weddings, everyone is happy and there's so much joy in the air!  My cheeks are usually sore at the end of the night from smiling watching how happy everyone is all day.  


My goal is to create the best images possible for you, but it is also a goal of mine to not get in the way of letting you and every one of your guests having the best experience possible. 


I want your experience with me and the photos of you and your love to be fun, spontaneous and romantic. I want you to be playful and genuinely enjoy your time together while I work to get some great images of the love and connection you share. 

I shot my first wedding in 2006 and fell in love with other people's love, I love hearing how you met, fell in love and I'm always up to hear a proposal story!

I'm always available to consult or ask questions.

HOW MANY IMAGES DO YOU DELIVER?
          Since every wedding is so different, I can’t guarantee a certain number of images. But, I can tell you that I deliver an average of 75-100 fully edited images per hour of photography.  Each of my wedding options includes an online gallery filled with beautiful, high resolution images from your wedding day. You are able to download, print and share with family and friends.   

WILL ALL OF MY IMAGES BE EDITED?
          Yes, each image I deliver from every wedding is individually hand edited by me.  This includes correcting exposure, color correcting and making each image exactly the way I like it to match my light but colorful style.  

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO RECEIVE MY IMAGES?
          If I were to be married I would want to see my images as early as the next morning, so I will send you at least 3 edited images the morning after your wedding day.  Then 3-5 weeks after your wedding day your full online gallery of edited images will be delivered.  

DO YOU OFFER ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS?
          I include engagement sessions in Options 1 and 2, I also offer a la carte engagement sessions.  They are a great way to get comfortable in front of the camera, get to know me better as well as create some beautiful images for you to remember your time together as an engaged couple. 

WILL THERE BE TWO PHOTOGRAPHERS AT MY WEDDING?
          A second photographer is included in wedding options 1 and 2. I also offer a second photographer a la carte.  

HOW DO I KNOW IF I NEED A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER?
          You may need a second photographer if you want additional angles of moments that happen at a simultaneous time, if you and your partner have different getting ready locations, or if you have more than 200 guests and more than 10 people in your bridal party.  

DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS?
          Yes, I have a updated passport and love to shoot in new places! Travel fees vary depending on location. Travel 2 hours from 94941 is considered local, any location beyond that will include a travel fee depending on location.   

I DON'T KNOW HOW MANY HOURS WE NEED? CAN YOU HELP?
          Yes, I would love to have a phone consult to hear more about your wedding day timeline and to help advise you on how many hours you need.  

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE DO COUPLES BOOK? 
          My weekends typically fill up pretty fast, especially in wedding season, so I highly recommend booking at least 6-9 months in advance, or as soon as you know you want me to be your photographer. 

WE ARE READY TO BOOK, WHAT'S THE PROCESS TO SECURE THE DAY? 
          Contact me through my website form to setup a phone consult to tell me more about your day, let me answer any questions you have and see if I'm available on your date.  
          Pay the $1000 non-refundable retainer and sign contract.  I do not hold dates for inquiries, the only way to secure a date with me is to sign the wedding contract and pay the retainer.  

DO YOU SHOOT DIGITAL OR FILM?
          Digital with a light film feel, natural light photographer

WHAT TYPE OF EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE? 
          I shoot with a Canon Mark II and Mark III, as well as a variety of professional lenses and lots of sandisk memory cards. I always bring backup equipment.  

HOW MANY WEDDINGS DO YOU SHOOT A YEAR? 
          I accept 15 weddings per year to better serve each client with an exceptional experience and give them all of my attention.  

WHAT IS YOUR APPROACH ON A WEDDING DAY? 
          I love candids, the spontaneous romantic, fun or sentimental moments that happen in a split second, those are my bread and butter and give me so much love for wedding photography.  I love to document your day as it happens,  I have always been fascinated by people's love and relationship's, so on a wedding day I am watching everything, every moment, every interaction and capturing the connection and love that surrounds you both on this special day.  I do this in a unobtrusive way, letting the day flow without much interruption from me, the only time I am directing a photo is during the family photos and will be giving prompts during your couple's photos.

process of Working Together

Hey Greer!

I just want to thank you for everything that you did for us on our wedding day. Michael showed me the sneak peek pictures...WOW...you made us look very good!

 You have a wonderful eye...you are AMAZING!

Not only are you a great photographer, your personality is FANTASTIC! I love chatting with you...you are so much fun and you make people feel very comfortable. I felt like I knew you for years. I hope we can meet again and just hang out...Thanks again for everything. I will talk to you soon!!! 

-Cindy and Michael 

Greer recently photographed my wedding day and I cannot say enough good things about her! She was such a delight to work with. She showed up early and worked very hard throughout the day, traveling between all of our various locations to capture all of the shots we had requested. She even suggested a few locations for shots following the ceremony that I never would have thought of! 

Looking over my pictures now (which were ready 2 weeks after the wedding!! ) and I am amazed at how many special, beautiful memories she captured. We had a large wedding, 200 guests, and she did a great job at capturing shots with almost everyone. Throughout the day Greer did a great job suggesting different poses and capturing many different shots/angles while still including some beautiful artistic images. 

I would definitely recommend Greer as a photographer! She was a pleasure to work with and the images she captures are exquisite!

Greer photographed our wedding on St.John in the U.S. Virgin Islands. It was a pleasure working with Greer. Unlike many couples we did not have a clear vision of what we wanted from our wedding photography. Greer helped us realize our vision. The final product far exceeded our expectations. The color and quality of the photographs were amazing!

Greer has a sweet and genuine demeanor. She is a true professional. We were impressed by how easy it was working with her. We were grateful to have a photographer we were comfortable with. We did, after all, spend a lot of time together on our wedding day. The day of the wedding, we barely noticed her taking pictures during the ceremony and reception, yet she was able to capture all the right moments. We had just the right balance of formal and candid shots. Thanks to Greer we have a beautiful collection of photographs from our wedding day. 

Greer is a wonderful photographer to share your wedding day with. I would trust her with any special occasion.

Our idea of a perfect wedding was to elope to a beautiful tropical setting in St.John. Since, friends and family would only experience the event through the photographs, it was imperative that we had a photographer who would capture and translate the laid back, simple yet elegant aesthetic we wanted. Barefoot in the sand, but with excellent champagne. In my business, I view portfolio's daily, and I knew upon seeing Greer's work that she would produce amazing images. But she was also an incredible joy to work with and to have in our company. So relaxed, yet so professional. She knew exactly what she was doing and understood exactly what we wanted. We couldn't be happier with the pictures that we have from that day. For our perfect wedding, we had the perfect photographer in Greer.  

Thanks again, Greer! 

Noah & Rita

Greer is amazing!!

Our pictures are absolutely beautiful. And all of them exceeded my expectations!

Greer is so sweet, and we felt so comfortable with her. All of our family and friends loved her as well.

I would 100% recommend Greer to a friend.
