I am a complete extrovert who can get a long with anyone I speak to, I love to visit and shoot at new locations, smile with all joy and capture long lasting memories.

This is where you will find my favorite part of my website! You will find special moments that my couples have shared and the love they have for each other. You may be able to picture your own wedding through these photos and the ones I can capture for your day.

This portion of my website you will find the engagement sessions. Engagement sessions is an important part of the way I work so we can get to know each other before the wedding. It will allow you to be comfortable in front of the camera and you will get a good feel of the way I work.

While starting my business in 2008, I have been photographing weddings nonstop and loving every moment of it!

With every wedding, I make sure to give you the experience you deserve and provide you with detailed information from start to finish. I know that this is new to you, that is what I am here for. I will help you along the way so that beautiful photos will be captured and will last a life time.

My Philosophy

Once you have secured a date and venue, it's time to schedule our in person meeting. It is very important that we get to know each other so we can build trust. It gives a vision of how you see yourself on the wedding day and allows me to get to know you so I can capture what is most important. I love to hear all about how you two met, how he proposed, what you like to do as a couple, your theme for the wedding, and so much more.

Once we meet we are then able to schedule your engagement session. This is a big part of my process and allows me to truly get to know you and how you interact with one another. The engagement session is where I am able to show you how I work and allows you to be comfortable in front of the camera. I am a very happy and friendly person so we will get along great! The trust that is built during the engagement session really comes through the photos, that is how I am able to capture such great moments especially on the wedding day. You will get a feel of how to pose and I will be familiar with complimentary ways to capture your features and be able to inspire your beautiful and genuine smile! It is the best feeling when I am able to capture the glow on your face which comes from your heart.

Your Journey

This is the day that you have been waiting for since you were a child. You planned everything out from your dress, to the flowers, to the venue, and even which bridesmaids you wanted. You have been tirelessly planning everything out and you want to make sure that all of your intricate details are captured. That is what I am here for! I want to help your dreams come to life and last for many generations.

The Wedding Experience begins at $3,000. For more detailed information, feel free to email us through my contact form. I am currently photographing a select number of weddings and engagement sessions per year.

The Investment

* Do you travel for destination weddings? 
Yes, I LOVE to travel! So far I have had the privilege to photograph in Northern and Southern California, Hawaii, Texas, Louisiana, North Carolina, Virginia, Oregon, Nevada, Wisconsin, and Montana. 

* What is the turn around time for receiving photos? - 
To get the best quality of photos to pass my high standard of perfection it takes about three weeks to deliver your images.

*When did your love for photography begin?
I have always loved photography longer than I can remember. I have always had a camera in my hand photographing everything in site. Of course, from all of those years of playing around I have grown to love photography as my life long career. It is just amazing to look back at where I started from and how I have grown into the photographer I am today.

* Do I work with a second photographer?
My second photographer is amazing! I always recommend choosing the package that allows you to see from two different angles.

* How many photographs do I deliver?
I am constantly taking photos, on average I typically deliver about one image per minute when I am photographing. Factor in the travel time to each location and meal break.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Holly was incredible. She was engaged, excited, helpful and super responsive from the moment we met her. She provided a lot of questions to help think about how the wedding would proceed and how she would be involved. I felt very at ease throughout the process which is a tough thing to do. At the end of the process, the pictures were incredible. We were seriously impressed with so many of the pictures. The only tricky part is trying to pick out the best ones! We actually bought an additional photo book since we enjoyed her work so much!

Holly D Photography has been my absolute favorite vendor ever! I flew out to her area a few days after the proposal to visit my family in July of this year. There, many friends and family supported her and her amazing work. It was just within those few days of visiting that I was confinced and excited that she was available to do a last minute engagement photo session with us. The pictures are gorgeous! Immediately after seeing the engagement pictures she was hired to capture our wedding day as well. Holly came out to take our wedding photos and I am still basking in how beautiful they turned out. She is truley amazing and creative. It is obvious she loves what she does. And she has all the proof she needs by the outstanding results she delivers. Thanks again so much Holly D. You're the best!

Holly is an amazing photographer to work with! She went above and beyond in everything she did for our special day. Very flexible during schedule and locations changes and somehow managed to be very timely and professional through it all. Overall, the passion she has for capturing special moments are evident in the pictures she took. :)

Amanda & Jesse

Holly was an amazing photographer and an all around great person to work with. We quickly felt very comfortable with her, especially after we met up for lunch before the wedding on her suggestion to get to know each other a bit better. She was fantastic about keeping everything organized before, during, and after the wedding -- sending in a shot list went very smoothly, and we had so many compliments about how friendly and wonderful she and her aides were during the wedding from our guests. She took a very creative approach to making sure we got the shots we wanted (even some really hard ones!) and making everyone feel really comfortable and happy. We were very glad to have her with us for the wedding and are so happy with the over 650 photos we received. Holly put up an online gallery that we can use to order prints and share directly with family and friends (so they also can order prints directly if they want) and sent us a customized flash drive within two weeks of the wedding. The fact that she was willing to travel for our wedding was even better! Holly is an amazing, laid back, friendly, and professional person who made our wedding all that much better, and we would absolutely recommend her to folks looking for a great photographer.
