Fair warning, we just might become friends. I make sure my clients are taken care of, and help them every step of the way. This includes Style Guides for Lifestyle Portrait, and Engagement sessions; a bottle of champagne for saying "yes" to me as your wedding photographer; It simply means you'll never have to wait more than 24 hours to hear back from me. And so much more you'll find out when you become a PMP client. The icing on the cake will be your photographs, elegant in style, classic and timeless, true family heirlooms for generations.

INVESTMENT BEGINS AT $3000

It was over 10 years ago when I photographed my first wedding! And it was after photographing over 100 weddings that I became a bride myself. Being on the other side of things made me realize the immense importance of a wedding photographer. I only photograph 12 weddings a year, so I choose my couples as much as they choose me.

INVESTMENT BEGINS AT $500

I firmly believe in having engagement portraits done with the photographer who will be capturing your wedding day. It's the perfect time to get comfortable with each other, learn some posing tricks, and feel like your photographer is a friend tagging along on your wedding day.

My very first client was a 6-month-old baby, who's now 14! I had the honors of photographing one of my senior's weddings a few years after her senior session. Whether my clients start out as wedding clients and become portrait clients, or portrait clients who become wedding clients, I love that I can keep serving them through all their live's milestones.

Poly made us feel comfortable, and it is very clear she truly loves her job and is passionate about capturing emotions in her work. She would ask us questions about each other, getting us to show real emotions and honestly fall a little more in love. I would recommend Poly to everyone! She is not only an absolutely amazing photographer; she is the sweetest, most thoughtful person!
