Experience

So, Mika, what’s it like to work with you?

I’M SO GLAD YOU ASKED!! PHOTOGRAPHY IS MORE THAN JUST POINTING, SHOOTING, AND EDITING. IT’S ABOUT CAPTURING YOUR STORY THROUGH THE LENS IN A WAY THAT WORDS JUST CAN’T!

It’s about the pre-shoot planning, the communication, and the confidence you feel on the day-of. It's about capturing the moments you can’t put into words and telling your love story—loudly—without holding anything back.

Wedding photography is about documenting a glimpse of your happiness to look back on for the rest of your lives!! This is an honor I don’t take lightly. Your experience with me is not just about the photos I take, it’s about how much I care about you—from the first point of contact, to the moment I deliver your final gallery.

Knowing you personally is SO important to me! I wanna know every detail of your love story to ensure I can tell it in the best, most authentic way possible! Book a call with me by filling out my contact form.

LET's get to know eachother

Each & every proposal is completely customized to meet your exact needs. Need an extra hour on the day of? Got it. Wanna surprise your man with some boudoir photos? Yasss, girl! Planning a rehearsal dinner that you just need documented? I’m on it.

When you’re ready to seal the deal by saving your date in my calendar, I’ll email you an agreement to sign. You’ll pay a non-refundable 30% retainer to secure your date. Then pop the champagne, you found your wedding photographer!

MAKE IT OFFICIAL

Let's talk here about timeline meetings and when final payment is due.
Anything you need leading up to your wedding, let me know! Past couples have asked me to join them for their final venue walkthrough, timeline planning meetings, or just need vendor recommendations. 
I’ll reach out about two months before with a wedding details questionnaire for you! We’ll schedule a time to meet up and talk about all things timeline. Your final payment is due one month before your wedding.


1-3 MONTHS BEFORE

PRE-WEDDING

GO BACK

I don’t want you to stress about anything when we work together! The happier you feel on the day of your wedding, the better chance we have of your photos turning out authentic and relaxed.
I want the time we spend together to be worthwhile and more than anything, I want you to love the photos and feel completely like yourself in front of the camera. Whatever you need, I’m there for you.
I usually arrive 20-30 minutes early to scope out the area and get settled before I start shooting!! If I have a second shooter, they’ll have a timeline and be super prepared with their tasks for the day.


WEDDING DAY

GO BACK

You’ll receive sneak peeks within 24-48 hours. I’ll deliver your final gallery within 3-4 weeks. If it's a busy season, it might be 4-6 weeks. 

You can access your gallery link at any time through the “for clients” tab on my website.

THE HONEYMOON PHASE

GO BACK

Planning a wedding is hard, I get it! I don’t want choosing your photographer to feel like another item to check off your to-do list. I want to make this process as enjoyable and seamless as possible.

Our journey together

HERE'S HOW IT ALL WORKS

~ Josephana and Peter

10/10 would recommend!

We really appreciated her efforts to communicate in a timely fashion. She did a great job keeping everyone on task and finishing photo sessions in a timely and organized manner. We also appreciate how friendly she was to not just us, but our families and guests.

~ Jennifer and Ben

What I loved most about her was her customer service. She responded promptly, and was transparent every step of the way. Mika is so detailed though the entire process that it translates into the most incredible, breathtaking photos. She is patient, kind, fun, professional, and most importantly, reliable. Mika put my mind to ease during some of the most stressful months as a covid bride, and for that I'm forever grateful for.

I chose Mika for her talent in photography!

Choose Mika!

Mika was the best photographer we could’ve asked for. She’s so sweet and has a great eye. She captured our day perfectly.

She's so sweet!

~ Bethany and Matthew

Mika will meet every expectation you have and exceed it. She is so personable, and you can tell she loves her job and her clients. Choosing Mika will take off loads of wedding day stress because she comes prepares with a schedule and a hug for you. We hope Mika will be part of our family for a long time!

Mika caught every aspect of our wedding day!

kind words

I value quality over quantity and I personalize packages because each client has different needs. On average, a typical 1-hour session will have 25+ images, a wedding has 200+ images. Again, it all depends on the client, session, and length of wedding day.

HOW MANY IMAGES DO YOU DELIVER?

No, I don't. RAW images take up a lot of room on your devices, I deliver professionally edited high-resolution images in an online gallery sent to your email. These images can be downloaded onto your phone or computer.

DO YOU DELIVER RAW IMAGES?

I edit your photos true to life, natural, and bright! I’ve found that this editing style is the most timeless way to enjoy your photos forever. 

WHAT'S YOUR EDITING STYLE LIKE?

Sneak peeks usually take about 24 - 36 hours after your portrait session and/or wedding day. Portrait sessions are delivered about 2 - 3 weeks after your session. Weddings are delivered about 3 - 4 weeks after your wedding day. During busy season, galleries can take a little longer to deliver.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO RECEIVE MY IMAGES?

I’ll send you an email when your gallery is complete! In that email, you can access the permanent link to your gallery, OR you can always find your link in my “For Clients tab. This link never expires so you can enjoy them forever!

HOW WILL WE RECEIVE OUR PHOTOS?

Yes, you can purchase high-quality prints through your online gallery after I deliver the session to you.

CAN I BUY PRINTS FROM YOU?

Yes!! I’ll walk you through natural posing, easy story-telling, and simple connection that will make you forget the camera is even there. Before you know it the session will be over and you’ll be feeling confident and excited to see the final shots.

WE'RE AWKWARD IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA, CAN YOU HELP US?

Every wedding is different, but in general, I do recommend a second shooter! Read my blog post all about Why You Need a Second Shooter

WHAT'S A SECOND SHOOTER? DO WE NEED ONE?

Heck YES, all the time! Do I pack my flip flops or my snow boots? Let me know where you want me and my bag is practically already packed.

DO YOU TRAVEL?

Of course!! Payment plans are built-in and only apply to wedding packages. After paying the non-refundable retainer, your balance is split into two payments all paid a month before your wedding date.

DO YOU OFFER PAYMENT PLANS?
