You’re making a serious commitment & a serious investment. I respect that because I could just as easily be standing in your shoes. If you’re choosing someone to tell your story, making a hard-earned investment, they damn well ought to do it better than the basics. I believe that the work we do should capture your story, in truth. The funniest details about you, the things you love the most, the moments in between. Your investment should be more than a service, it should be an experience that ends in friendship, laughter & moments the represent who you truly are. Your investment should be with someone who will work with you on every step of the way, feel like a part of your friend group, and truly believe in your vision whether it’s extravagant or the simplest notion. The artist you chose should be a person you blend with, whose work you love and makes YOU feel. I do things a little different, and I’m totally okay with that. I’m on a mission to show folks that images don’t have to be dreaded, don’t have to feel like a chore, and should be the exact opposite. The goofy stances I get in to get that shot I’m after, the ridiculous comments and inappropriate jokes that have you rolling in laughter, the unstaged beauty of you as you are. I also want my clients to get the most out of their investment, which is why I created customized guides that take you through planning every detail, lay out the best timeline for your day, and provide tips, tricks and vendor recs. In the end, I’m on a mission to change the way we think about images, and the way we tell stories. This is where your story becomes a part of that.
INVESTING IN FOREVER
I'm just like you.
Your investment matters. You've got dreams, goals and a life outside a single moment. I've always stood by the idea that I'd rather do it once and do it well than steal a deal and wish i'd done it differently. I chose to follow that value in the work I create too. I want you to have the chance to travel, to buy that gear you've been wanting, to invest in your life together. I also want you to make an investment that will give you something to treasure for the rest of your lives, not one that says we did the thing because we thought we should. I haven't had a single client I've worked with in 7 years tell me it wasn't what they'd hoped. We're going to keep it that way.
1% to Earth
YOUR INVESTMENT SUPPORTS THE PLACES YOU LOVE
Conservation is one of my deepest values. I want the work I do to reflect that in more way than one. Every year since I opened Erin Wheat Co. 9 years ago I have donated 1% of my gross income each year to environmental non-profits. When you invest in my work, you invest in the places you love. I’m also incredibly proud to be a certified member of 2% for Conservation, as well as serve as the Vice Chair for our Board of Directors. We work with individuals and businesses that donate 1% of their gross income & 1% of their time each year to conservation. Businesses are evaluated and a determination is made on whether they fit the organizations requirements for activism, environmental donation based on business size, time commitments, and support of local efforts. As a small business owner and one-woman show, this isn’t always an easy commitment to make, but it is one I don’t think twice about and I’m incredibly proud that my clients are all a part of this with me. In 2021 & 2022, we donated to Jackson Hole Search & Rescue, ILCP, the Alaska Conservation Foundation, NRDC, Greater Yellowstone Coalition, Idaho Conservation League, Leave No Trace, and Mountain & Prairie Podcast. Thank you.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
Our day doesn't quite fit into the packages above. Do you ever consider custom packages?
Heck yes. I value my community, the people I work with, the relationships we build more than anything else. If I can make something work for us both, I absolutely will. If you'd like to embellish something listed above, just ask. I'll build something that fits you.
What embellishments are available?
You want your package to cover everything you need. Let's do it. Added hours, second shooters (recommended for weddings with more than 150 guests), prints, albums, film edits, & adventure sessions are all options. If you decide the day-of you'd like to extend your coverage, that's totally cool with me. I'll invoice you for additional hours the next day.
How do we book?
In order to hold a date and get started working with me, all elopement packages require a 50% deposit and contract signed by you & your partner. All wedding packages require a 35% deposit and contract signed by you & your partner. Contracts are electronic, and payments can be made through your invoice with cards or bank transfers. If you need to make your payments another way, just let me know, I'm flexible! The remainder of your payment will be due 30 days prior to your day.
Do you offer payment plans?
I'm happy to work with you. I totally understand that for some of us, budgeting is crucial. The deposit must be paid in full in order to hold a date, but after that I'm totally happy to divide up your remaining payment in increments that work for you throughout the time frame leading up to 30 days ahead of your date!
