Hi, I’m Meme
Hello All! I’m Meme! It’s pronounced like, “Mee-Mee,” but you can also refer to me as your professional third wheel, The Cat Whisperer, The Mango Maven (I’ll explain later), The Shutter Queen, you know, whatever you’re into! I have a penchant for adventure, and making memories with you and your fiance is what I care about more than anything.
When I’m not out shooting, I can be found in any of the numerable coffee shops in Frisco, Texas, and my goal is to travel the world in search of the adventuresome, the untamed, and the eclectic couples of Earth.
For some back story, I’m just another millennial chasing my innate passion and pursuing what I love, man. I have a bachelors degree in Biology (disclaimer in the event that I ever rattle off random anatomical regions while directing during a shoot), and if you’re ever feeling ill I can probably diagnose what you’ve got for you - no WebMD required. Ever since I was a little snot-nosed kiddo, I’ve always had some sort of camera in my hands, whether it was a little a point and shoot or a Polaroid. But after undergrad, I bought my very first DSLR camera as a graduation gift to myself (because, treat yo self), and the rest is history. After years of live performance/concert/festival photography, I later discovered that I truly have a passion for capturing weddings, couples in love, and the spaces they inhabit.
I’d love to meet you, your pets, your families, and I want to hear all about your vision for your big day. And, I’ll try my best not to cry with you when you walk down the aisle (no promises, though). I love to laugh, I love to make memories, and moreover, I love people. Documenting weddings in the most authentic and honest way possible, is kind of my jam. Let’s be friends?

How would you describe your style?
Great question! I would say that my approach is documentary-style honesty. It’s journalistic in that i want to capture the day as it unfolds without staging or awkward posing, as i want your images to be a genuine reflection of your day in the most truthful, untainted way. I would describe my style as romantic, emotive, and authentic.
where can we see our photos?
digitally! I deliver all of my images to you in a personalized online gallery. This gallery can be accessed for up until a year from the shoot date. Images from your gallery can be downloaded in both high-resolution for printing purposes, as well web resolution for social media and web posting.
Is the retainer fee non-refundable?
for all sessions, I require a retainer fee and a signed contract. to make me your official third well for your wedding, the retainer is 25% of the total cost. for all other sessions, the retainer is 50%. The retainer fee is non-refundable, as it secures your date and time for you and you alone. In the event that you need to re-schedule, the retainer fee can be transferred to an alternative date.
wait, you travel? that’s great! What’s the cost?
i cannot stress enough how much i looove traveling, y’all. For weddings inside the continental u.s. and international destinations, let’s chat about either a flat travel fee or making other arrangements. I work with you guys to find the best rates available for lodging and flying, so that this remains feasible.
How many images will we RECEIVE?
No two weddings are the same, and I allow the flow of the day to govern this.I focus on the quality of the images obtained versus quantity. I will say that I am an avid overshooter, and I am very generous when it comes to the amount of photos I deliver! My full galleries typically range anywhere from 600-1000 photos, again just depending on the atmosphere of the day as well as the number of hours onsite. i just simply don’t like limiting either of us to a set amount of images from our session.
Do you offer prints? albums?
as of right now, I do offer prints and I do offer albums! yay!! I also include a personal print release with your contract, so you’re totally free to have any of the high-res images from your session printed through a print service provider of your liking. You can also order prints directly through your online digital gallery, or I can also offer recommendations for print service providers in your area.
What do I wear to my shoot?
my favorite question! i can absolutely send over some of my pinterest boards for you guys to take a gander at for some inspiration.
