Like the perfect venue or attire, your photographer should be a seamless fit. They're there for your intimate day, and you'll spend most of it together.

I specialize in suiting diverse couples, capturing beautiful photos and heirlooms for lasting memories.

That said, I'm trying to work with couples who:

1.) Are super freaking cool (or at least their friends think so!)

2.) Are incredibly in love with each other + not afraid to show it

3.) Aren't afraid to get a little wet or dirty if it makes for an awesome photo

4.) Understand the value of a photograph + what it can provide

5.) Will be supplying some kind of delicious dessert after dinner

(Well, okay, so maybe number 5 isn't that important...)

If this sounds like the two of you, I'M the perfect photographer to capture your big day! Let's connect!

2. Get Acquainted

Every couple deserves to have a wedding photographer that they can trust to do the job and vibe with along the way.

Let's chat, whether it's via phone or video call or a meeting in person. It serves as an opportunity to for you to discuss plans of the day, us to go over pricing and contracts, and more.

Plus, I want to know all the cheesy details about how you two met, how the proposal went down, and any more fun details about who you are as a couple... these meetings help me get to know you, too!

3. Seal The Deal

Once you choose a package, you'll sign a contract and pay a 25% retainer fee to secure your spot.

Once those two things are taken care of, you have officially booked your wedding photographer! (Do a little dance or give yourself a pat on the back!)

4. fun ENGAGEMENT or bridal SESSION



Prepare for a super fun engagement, wedding attire, anniversary, or boudoir session. We'll brainstorm ideas to make it feel uniquely you.

For an engagement session, you can keep it simple or go all out – the choice is yours! Whether you choose a tranquil park, your favorite spot, or a unique location, these sessions are a chance for your personalities and love to shine. Or we can celebrate your anniversary a year later in the same manner.

Or, consider a wedding attire session for elegant portraits in your wedding attire. Plus, if you schedule your makeup trial on the same day, you can test how your makeup photographs. (so it's a win-win, really.)

I also offer boudoir sessions as an option. These can be done solo or as a couple & make for a great wedding gift for your S.O.

These sessions are about capturing your essence, making every photo a treasured memory.

5. Final Details


A month before your wedding, we'll go over all the specifics for a seamless day via a questionnaire.

A week or two before your wedding, we can hop on the phone for a chat. Last-minute changes? No problem. Details you forgot to mention? Let’s get them sorted. Nothing to discuss? That's fine too, let's just check in to confirm we are on the same page.

Love Notes from Previous Clients

"I’m honestly convinced Aireal is wizard. I’m not sure how she manages to make me look good in all my pictures, but she does every time. She’s so easy and fun to work with and takes the time to make you feel comfortable. She goes above and beyond to help you get the most genuine smiles for your pictures too, none of those forced awkward smiles. Overall just a 10/10 experience, she’s the best!"

"Aireal was great to work with on our wedding day! She was one of the few WV photographers willing to travel to our wedding venue in Seneca Rocks, WV and really got our vision. Despite it being a torrential downpour on our wedding day, she did a WONDERFUL job of getting as many pictures as possible and making the rain/fog/clouds work in our favor for the pictures. We will forever keep these pictures and have received SO many compliments on them from our friends and families."

A Wedding at Bailey Barns Venue


"Aireal is the best! We chose her to photograph our wedding because she is an LGBTQ+ friendly photographer, which is pretty difficult to find in this area (West Virginia). We thought that her website was easy to navigate, and she has really detailed descriptions of packages, so you know exactly what you’re getting. She was super easy to work with both before and during the wedding.

We appreciated all of her check-ins and she even made a photography timeline for us to help us know when specific photos would take place. We were afraid we wouldn’t have enough time during our wedding to get everything captured but we actually ended up having extra time at the end. Aireal is super friendly and she made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. She also gave us suggestions of poses to do instead of letting us stand there awkwardly. Aireal could probably herd cats because she managed to get all of our family and friends to stand still. The finished photos are absolutely beautiful. We are so excited to fill our wedding album with them!"
