experience A Sweet Focus wedding.

Effortless Execution

Having photographed hundreds of weddings, I expect the unexpected. I know when to step-in, and when to step aside. Your photographs will be beautiful, and reflect the experience of your wedding day. Our timelines and shot-list will be in place months before so you can relax and enjoy the day, knowing I am capturing it all right beside you.

Words from A Sweet Focus Bride

“Merinda and her Sweet Focus were truly phenomenal. Several weeks before my wedding, Merinda gave me a call to go over the wedding schedule in detail; I really appreciated her professionalism, organization, and attention to detail that contributed greatly to making my wedding day flawless. Merinda’s incredible talent and her enthusiastic, pleasant personality sets her apart. I never stressed about pictures, because I knew that Merinda and her team would get the perfect shots-and they did. All of the photos were stunning, each picture captured our happiness and emotions throughout the day so perfectly. My husband and I will treasure our wedding photos for the rest of our lives, and we are so grateful that we chose Merinda to capture these unforgettable memories.”

Endless Support

You’re the center of my photography experience. Our journey begins far before the day of your wedding. With so many exciting details to experience, including engagement planning, engagement sessions, and the wedding day of course, I’m there to guide you through the entire process. I make sure to send you everything from monthly newsletters to wedding day planning tips. Together, we’ll cover it all from first looks, to garter tosses, and shot must-haves. You’ll be ready for your big day.

Words from A Sweet Focus Bride

“Merinda helped our day run smoothly by keeping us on a schedule, which was difficult because of the large wedding party. Her assistant also went above and beyond from taking photos to fixing my veil and holding my bouquet when needed. Hands down she was the right choice for me and she would be for you too!”

Ever-Present Moments

Calm with sounds of laugher, that’s my approach. On your wedding day, you have my undivided attention; I’m100% present for you and your celebration. I’m drama free, nonjudgmental, and overjoyed to be a part of your day. When I’m not capturing romantic photos of you, you will probably find me smiling ear to ear grabbing shots of your favorite cousin dancing with her little girl, or your grandma getting her groove on. I know I’ve done my job when I see you’re relaxed, and your guests are being taken care of – it’s all about creating memories.

Words from A Sweet Focus Bride

“There probably aren’t enough characters for me to truly describe how amazing it was to have Merinda with A Sweet Focus as our photographer for our wedding. From our first meeting, I could tell she was the perfect person to capture the importance and beauty of our day. Our photos are all so spectacular my parents cry every time they look at them! She made my husband and me feel like models, which is exactly how you should feel on your special day! If you are looking for someone who is laid back, organized, and knows how to capture the perfect shot then book with Merinda! She was the best thing I did in planning our wedding besides actually marry my husband!”

Everlasting Memories

Your wedding is the very first day of your new family history, a celebration of two families uniting as one. I collect memories beyond the details and the poses – I capture the candid moments. You’ll have an abundance of images to take home and look back on, beautiful memories that will last forever. That’s the perfect wedding day recipe! A little posed, sprinkles of details, and a lot of love and laughter.

Words from A Sweet Focus Bride

“A Sweet Focus helped document our special day and created photo memories that will last a lifetime! I was not sure of the exact places to take wedding day pictures, but she was full of ideas and willing to call places even to try and reserve spots for photos. I was vague with my ideas and descriptions of spots to go for photos, and she helped make my ideas reality! Last night, we received the link to our organized wedding gallery and loved the photos!! Even though it will be SO DIFFICULT to choose which photos from the MANY that we love to print for our album and hang in our home, we cannot wait to get them printed!”
