If you want to walk away after working with me and think “damn…that was so much fun”, then you’ve come to the right place…let me tell you why…
Photos are supposed to be fun. No one wants to feel stiff and awkward in front of the camera, let alone remember that same feeling when looking at the photos later.
I focus on candid, natural movement rather than stiff, uncomfortable posing. My goal is to have you and your partner so in the moment that you forget I’m even there. By prioritizing prompts instead of poses, I’ll get you the real, authentic photos that you came for.
My mission: to provide you with a comfortable, fun, and laughter-filled experience. You'll get photos that you cherish forever + an unforgettable experience.
From the moment you clicked on my website, to the day I deliver your gallery and beyond, I am on your team.
Call me your friend, hype woman, or “the best decision you’ll make for your wedding” (if you want to take the word of one of my brides)
In all seriousness though, I am extremely passionate about what I do - photographing the best damn moments of your life.
I love witnessing the monumental moments like when you say “I do”, and I can’t even explain the feeling I get when I’m watching a bride dance with her grandfather, sharing a tear with her mom before putting on her dress, or locking eyes with her partner as she walks down the aisle.
Now, what're you waiting for? Let’s go make some memories!
"She is AMAZING! She took the best wedding pictures I could ask for! I had her do my destination wedding pictures and it was the best decision! No stress, she was great at communicating and got my pictures to me SO fast! She was super accommodating with my crazy planning and wedding party! Booking with Yumi was the best decision!"

Payment is collected online via zelle or credit card!
For regular sessions, 50% of the total is due at booking as a non-refundable retainer fee. The rest is due two days prior to the session.
For elopements & weddings, one third of the total is due at booking as a non-refundable booking fee, and the remainder is due one week prior to the wedding.
How Does Payment Work?
Fill out that contact form, friend!!
As long as I'm not on vacation, I will get back to you within 24 hrs!
Once the contact form is sent in, I will send you an investment guide and we can schedule a time to chat if you'd like! After you decide how you want to move forward, I will send you a project proposal with a contract and invoice. Sign the contract and pay the non-refundable retainer fee, and we're all set!!
How Do I Book You?
The likelihood of this is slim; however, in this type of situation, my second photographer is fully equipped and capable of taking over. This has never happened (knock on wood), and I don't expect this to happen at any fault of my own. I look forward to your wedding day just as much as you do, and it would crush me to not be able to celebrate you!
What Happens If You Can’t Be At Our Wedding?
If you decide to cancel, per the contract, you are forfeiting the non-refundable retainer fee and any monies already paid toward the total cost. Your non-refundable retainer fee secures your spot in my calendar, making it so that I am unable to schedule any other sessions for that time. In the case of having to reschedule, you can reschedule ONCE to a date that we are both available for without facing any rescheduling fees. After rescheduling once, your session is subject to additional rescheduling fees should you choose to reschedule again.
What If We Cancel/Reschedule Our Date?
I have a very strict policy in my business and I do not photoshop people to alter their body image.
I truly believe our society has placed extremely harmful expectations on women (and even men for that matter), and I choose to look at how beautiful my couples are by not feeding into unhealthy societal pressures. The most I use photoshop for is removing distracting objects from the backgrounds of images.
I do very minimal skin correcting and adjustments. I use editing as a tool to enhance images as a whole. I will not slim you down or add a six pack. Typically the only time I like to use photoshop is for removing distracting objects in the background!
Will You Photoshop Us?
At this point, I do not offer a lot of discounts. The experience you get with me is strategically priced to give you the best value for my work while still allowing me to pursue my dream of being a full time biz owner.
Returning clients, however, will receive a 15% discount on regular sessions (does not include weddings).
Do You Offer Discounts?
If you decide to book with me, I can go into further details with you later on. To simplify for now, if your session or wedding takes place outside of a specific range that I am located at that time, you will be responsible for any travel expenses that are incurred for me to provide you the experience of your dreams!!
This typically includes things like gas/mileage rate, airfare + overnight accommodations, etc.
