WAHHHHOOOOOO. So if you’re here right now that means one of two things. 1. YOU’RE ENGAGED and 2. You’re a massive planner & I LOVE it.
Oooooh baby I love weddings. My passion. My dream. Allllll of it. Booking a wedding with me is not a one and done transaction - see ya in however many months. NOOO WAY. I will text or email you to help with planning. I will help you search far and wide for the perfect vendors you need. I will spend a day with you in an epic location for engagement photos - if you so choose. I will help you create your wedding day timeline. I will spend countless hours to help & serve YOU so that your day is everything you want it to be. On your wedding day, I will not only take photos, but I will help fix your hair, yell at annoying people in the way, and I will hold your dress while you pee. I will steal you away during the reception to snap those ever so dreamy sunset pictures, and there is a 100% chance that I will join you on the dance floor.

WHAT IS YOUR PRICING?
I would love to chat with you about pricing! My packages start at $3975, however, my packages can be customized to suit your budget. You can add on albums, prints, or canvas at any time after your wedding!
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN BUSINESS, HOW MANY WEDDINGS HAVE YOU PHOTOGRAPHED?
I've been photographing professionally for 4 years. I have been a self-employed, full time photographer for 2+ years (I was previously part-time while working as a nurse). I have photographed over 70 weddings as of 2019.
HOW DO YOU DESCRIBE YOUR SHOOTING STYLE? ARE YOU LAID BACK OR AGGRESSIVE? DO YOU TELL THE WHOLE STORY OF THE DAY?
This is a very good question. It is important that you have a photographer that is a good fit with your wedding. If you are having a somewhat laid back easy going wedding, you probably want someone who is unobtrusive and remains in the background for the majority of the day (except while directing shots). That is me, I am a pretty easy going relaxed person and have been told I have a “calming effect” on people. I take a more observant approach and focus on telling the whole story of the day by capturing lots of little details that might otherwise go unnoticed. However, I can certainly wrangle a rowdy group!
WHAT KIND OF EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE? DO YOU HAVE BACKUP EQUIPMENT?
I use all of the latest Canon equipment with backup gear: I have one Canon 5D Mark IV and one Canon 5D Mark III cameras and an assortment of professional lenses: Sigma 35 1.4 ART, Canon 50 1.2 l, Canon 85 1.8, Canon 16-35 2.8 l, Canon 24-70 2.8 l, and Tamron 70-200 2.8 G2.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SEE OUR PHOTOS?
You will see a sneak peek blog post of approximately 100 photos 24-48 hours after your wedding. Please allow 8-12 weeks for your final photographs to be delivered in your online gallery, a USB will follow.
DO YOU HAVE LIABILITY INSURANCE?
I sure do! If you need a certificate of proof for your wedding venue please let me know ASAP so I can provide a copy for you.
CAN YOU DEFINE YOUR CREATIVE STYLE?
I strive to document weddings from both an editorial and photojournalistic perspective. There are elements of each style that lend themselves perfectly to capturing the different parts of a wedding day. I like to see myself as a guiding force; creating a balancing act between providing direction and letting moments unfold naturally. I switch back and forth from being a fly on the wall, capturing moments from afar to being on the dance floor with you, getting in on the action.
DO I GET DIGITAL FILES FROM MY WEDDING DAY?
All collections include high–resolution digital files from your wedding day with a print release for personal use. What this means is that you can share your gallery with friends and family and download and print your pictures at any printing company of your choice. You are also allowed to share them on social media. Professional prints, wall art and albums only available through a professional photographer will also be available to order through your gallery.
HAVE YOU PHOTOGRAPHED AT XYZ VENUE?
It is possible :) But, if I haven't photographed there, I would love to do a site visit with your planner/you before the day arrives, if at all possible. I adapt well to new environments and always come fully prepared for any situation.
WE THINK YOU ARE A GOOD FIT TO CAPTURE OUR WEDDING DAY, HOW DO WE RESERVE OUR DATE?
Fill out my contact form to see if your wedding date is available. At the time of booking I require a 50% of your wedding collection retainer and require a filled out wedding contract. We accept payment by credit card via our online booking system. Once they are both received your wedding date is officially booked on my calendar. The remaining balance is due no later than 30 days prior to your wedding date.
