You’re going to look epic. We’re going to have fun. I’m going to get dirty.
I describe my style as dramatic, modern, and vibrant. You’ll get imaginative, colorful, eye catching photos with lots of laughter.
WHAT’S INCLUDED? Every wedding or shoot of any kind includes all the high resolution images with printing rights, but no prints. About 700-900 final images will be delivered from a 9 hour wedding. Most other portrait sessions are 75-150 final images. All images are edited. A huge range of print options is available, and non-wedding sessions are encouraged to purchase a print credit.
DO WE HAVE TO DO THE ENGAGEMENT SESSION? YES, you do! The best wedding photos are made when my couple is extremely comfortable with me and the camera- that’s why I require my couples to spend a few hours with me before the wedding! I truly want to capture your most natural and intimate moments – so we have to get to know each other. Plus you get gorgeous photos and an afternoon of smooching your fiancee out of it!
WHAT IS THE FIRST LOOK? A First Look is a private moment for the wedding couple to see each other a few hours before the ceremony, and it’s the #1 way to have a more fun and relaxed day! I always recommend that my couples plan a first look, so they can complete all family and bridal party photos before they get married. Then it’s “I do”, grab a drink, and go to your reception- no more photo obligations or keeping your guests waiting. This also allows my couples to spend more time with each other on wedding day, and for shy couples to relax together before 100 people are watching them! Finally, it allows those with late afternoon ceremonies to have photos taken during daylight. Really, there’s no reason NOT to do a first look!
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT? I will send you a next day preview of a few favorites the day after your wedding or session. Within 30 – 60 days, you’ll see all the final photos in an online, shareable, password protected gallery. Additionally, I may publish a blog post with highlights from your session here on my blog, and use your images for any other promotion the studio sees fit.
HOW DO I BOOK YOU? First, see if your date is available! Then we’ll get together over ice cream or coffee to answer questions and see if we click. Phone meetings are also good! After we’ve met, I require a 30% retainer and your e-signature on my e-contract to book your wedding date. Sessions over $400 and sessions involving travel require a 50% deposit. Get in touch here.
DO YOU WORK WITH THE LGBTQ COMMUNITY? Of course. I support all love, marriages and families!
WHERE DID YOU GO TO SCHOOL? I didn’t! I’m self taught and have been running my own portrait and wedding business since 2009. I’m a member of Fearless Photographers which inspires me to push myself to create more awesome imagery at every event.
DO YOU OFFER MINI SESSIONS? No. To photograph people at their best, especially children, requires an investment of time. The most natural moments are those captured when everyone is comfortable together. For this reason, I don’t offer short sessions.
WILL YOU MAKE ME SKINNIER? Nope. I won’t make anyone skinnier, remove wrinkles or airbrush skin. Temporary marks such as zits are removed. Braces, dog leashes, spit, drool, runny noses, flyaway hairs and other elements you consider unsightly can be removed for a retouching fee ($50- $150 per session, $400-600 per wedding).
DO YOU TRAVEL? Yes! Destination weddings are available and I’ve traveled all over the US and internationally for weddings. There may be a travel fee for areas outside of Colorado. Inquire for details!
