When you get married, you are committing to a future together.
So if you are thinking weddings are full of waste and you’re super not interested in contributing, you’re not alone!
A more sustainable wedding is in reach.
Let's work together to make the wedding industry more sustainable, one celebration at a time.
On average, weddings with 100-120 guests lead to 400-600 pounds of waste.
In just ONE DAY.
What's more, according to a 2020 study by the sustainability consultancy Edge Impact, the average American wedding emits 57,152 kilograms of CO2. To offset this, you would need to plant 2,722 trees.
WE CAN, AND MUST, DO BETTER.
Much of this waste can be minimized, composted, or recycled if you are intentional about it. By making sustainable choices, you can create a wedding that not only celebrates your love but also respects our planet and communities.
I am here to be your sustainability buddy and help you plan a meaningful and impactful celebration that cuts down on waste and emissions. Together, we can make sure your day is environmentally friendly without compromising on details, decor, or FUN!
DID YOU KNOW?
From quotes and contracts to your final gallery, everything is digital to reduce wasted paper and ink.
When you do print, I offer ways to get your prints in the most eco-friendly way possible by recommending labs that share our values of sustainability and holding on to memories!
I drive Maple, my Nissan Leaf, which is a fully electric vehicle. 90% of the weddings I photograph are within an hour of my home (many are much closer than that) which keeps my emissions low!
I try to make it as easy as possible for my couples to be conscious of their impact while also making sure they have a phenomenal wedding day! You are never alone in this journey!
I only take 25 weddings each year to make sure that my couples receive the absolute best service possible. I leave time in my schedule for regular exercise and time with my family and friends to avoid burnout so I am super-duper ready for your wedding day. Sustainability is more than being eco-friendly!
Best practices for a sustainable gathering
By hosting a love-filled, environmentally-friendly event, you’ll highlight your shared devotion to this important cause in a beautiful, impactful way. Through this, you’ll inspire your friends and family and be a blueprint for future sustainable celebrations.
I’d like to invite you to make your wedding more sustainable, so we can continue celebrating weddings for eons to come!
I am a member of 1% for the Planet, a non-profit that encourages businesses of all sizes to donate at least 1% of their annual sales directly to environmental organizations, which means your wedding will be supporting environmental non-profits approved by 1% for the Planet right here in the Twin Cities!
