We believe in capturing meaningful moments between people in love. Working with Peaks x Pines to capture your love story should not only be fun - but also meaningful and memorable. We might take the road less traveled, but I promise, the views will be worth every step!
You're a crazy in love couple who knows your wedding day is the start of a brand-new adventure in your love story. And out of all the decisions you'll make while planning your wedding, photography is one of the biggest. Your photographer will be the ONE person who will be by your side all day long (other than your husband/wife, of course!).
I am here to serve you and I want you to trust in me 1000%. You should be smiling, laughing, feeling at ease, and being PRESENT throughout your wedding day. It's not about me or what I'm looking for as an artist, it's about giving you the most amazinggg experience ever and capturing your love in its own unique way. Just please don't mind me if I'm jumping around like a crazy person, I'm just SO excited about the photos we're creating together! By the time it's all said and done, I want you to feel it in your core - that you received more than just photos, but an experience that you will never forget.
Booking your wedding photographer should be easy peasy, so I've created a simple process where you can just sit back and enjoy being engaged. I have so much information to share with you to help guide you as you plan for your big day. Fill out my contact form so we can get the party started!
I get it. You work hard for your money and wedding photography is such a huge investment that you want to make sure you're making the right choice. As you decide on your wedding photographer, keep in mind two things. First, payment plans are available. And second, everything else that you're planning is temporary. Your wedding photographs is the one thing that will last forever. My goal is to create a beautiful and timeless images while giving you the most amazing experience ever. And by the time you receive your gallery you will feel it in your core that what you received were without a doubt worth more than what you paid.
The short answer is no. Trust me, you wouldn't want them! I often take 2000+ images during a wedding. I remove all the ones that are duplicates, out of focus, someone's blinking, etc. and only deliver the best of the best! I promise to never leave any images behind that you'll want/need. I won't let you miss out on your important memories!
You'll receive your gallery within 2-3 weeks for couples/engagement sessions and 4-8 weeks for wedding galleries. I send you a few sneak peeks within a few days after your photo session or wedding so that you can share them on social media!
You can print + create albums directly through your gallery! All prints and albums will be coming from a professional photo printing company. Or you can download the high-res images and print wherever you'd like! I like to keep things easy peasy lemon squeezy. (;
For engagement sessions you'll receive a minimum of 25 images and a minimum of 500 images for a wedding. However, I don't limit how much I edit or give back. I will include all the images that turned out amazing while removing all the duplicates or the ones where you're blinking.
I absolutely love first looks! It's a great way to just have a moment together and get all the jittery nerves out before the ceremony. However, I totally respect your decision to not have a first look. This is your day, you celebrate your wedding how you want! #youdoyoubooboo
My wedding collections have a base of 8 hours minimum. Additional hours are available to fit your wedding photography needs.
For weddings that are 8 hours or more, myself and another highly professional photographer will be there to capture every moment and detail of your day. For elopements or courthouse weddings, one photographer (aka me) will be there to document your special day.
Absolutely! I will send you a template of what typically occurs during a wedding day and we can make any changes that you see fit. This also helps me see what events are coming up throughout your day as well.
If I haven't, I can reassure you that it doesn't matter! I always go location scouting if your wedding is at a venue that I haven't shot at before. I promise that I will arrive at your wedding fully prepared and *pinky promise* that the quality of your photos won't be any less than amazingly beautiful. (:
That totally depends on your needs. A lot of couples who book their engagement session also use these images for their save-the-dates, website, framed prints for their guest tables, and of course social media! Plus - it's also a great way for you to get a little more comfortable in front of the camera and it gives us an opportunity to get to know each other a little more. (:
I do! My traditional payment plan is 40% due at the time of booking and the remaining balance due a month prior to your wedding date. But if you wanted to do a payment plan, once your 40% retainer has been paid, I can stretch the balance into 1/3's or 1/4's if that works best for you. Just let me know what you prefer, and I can make it happen!
I shoot with my handy dandy Canon 5DIII with prime lenses - along with many memory cards, batteries, and flash. They're with me at all times during your wedding day!
HECK YES I WILL. No love story is too far for me to travel. Nothing makes me more happy then when a couple wants me to travel to document their destination wedding/elopement. Additional travel fees do apply to weddings that require me to fly out of state or stay overnight.

Vikki was so great! She was really efficient and had fun with us while we took our wedding photos. I really appreciated how flexible she was with our schedule. Super communicative, I definitely recommend!
Diana + Paul
Vikki is an amazing photographer, she's really kind, she has a creative eye, she's patient, and on top of that she's really fun to be around. This girl puts her heart, time, and dedication and we're truly blessed to have her capture our engagement photos. If you're looking for a photographer, don't think twice on this one. I would truly recommend Vikki ❤️ to anyone who's looking for a photographer.

I just got our gallery and I'm surprised of the lovely photos we got that we just took in about an hour! What I love about Vikki is the number of options of photos that she made available for us! I liked that she knew what to do in such a short amount of time and was energetic and direct during our photoshoot which I believe helped my husband know what to do since he's not a big fan of getting photos taken LOL. Overall, we had fun and it was memorable!

Vikki captured moments at our wedding reception. I don't even know where to start with my experience with her! I absolutely loved every moment working with her. My husband and I can't thank her enough for working with us when we had to adjust the timeline the day of our wedding reception. She made the moments enjoyable and truly captured real moments. She is amazing, fun, and patient! Her work is amazing. I would highly recommend her and would choose her again and again! Thank you so much!

My fiance Jeffrey and I won an engagement session with Vikki and didn't know what to expect. We've never had a photoshoot before and we are so awkward haha. But somehow Vikki made us feel natural and comfortable with each other in front of the camera, and the hour went by super quick. She really tries to get to know you as a couple and reflect it through her photos. The pictures turned out amazing, and we knew we had to book her for our big day! We got so many compliments from our friends and family on our engagement photos. Can't wait to work with her again for our wedding!

We also won an engagement shoot with her and the pictures turned our better than I could imagine! Vikki is so friendly and fun to work with and she made our awkward nerves instantly go away. I can't wait for our wedding photos and would 1000% refer her to anyone looking to have a great photos taken and have a blast while taking them! Book her now!
