Your images will be modern, candid, dramatic, and vibrant. More importantly, your day will be fun AF and your photos will reflect who you are as a couple.
All the images on my website are real couples, at real weddings, on real wedding days, shot in the last two years. I don’t work from a list of poses but rather put you and your lover into the best light so your candid, giggly, ridiculous, and tender moments look their best. Of course, if you need posing help, I am here for you!
SO WHAT’S INCLUDED? Shenanigans. Oh, and every wedding or shoot of any kind includes all the high resolution images with printing rights. About 80-100 final images will be delivered from each hour spent shooting, and all images are finished to the standard you see here on the website.
SO, THE ENGAGEMENT SESSION? Dooooooo it! The best photos are made when my couple is extremely comfortable with me and the camera- that’s why I ask my couples to spend a session with me before the big day! I want to authentically capture your most personal 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 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 (but do not require) that my couples plan a first look, so they can complete all family and party photos before they get married. Then it’s “I do”, grab a drink, and go to your hang out with your people. No more photo obligations or keeping your guests waiting. This also allows my couples to spend more time with each other, and for shy couples to relax together before people are watching them! It allows those with late afternoon ceremonies to have photos taken during daylight, and finally, all the adorable crying. Really, there’s no reason NOT to do a first look!
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT? After your session or event, I will send you a preview within 48 hours of a few favorite images for you to share. Within 30 – 60 days, you’ll see all the final photos in an online, shareable, password protected gallery. You can download your images from there!
HOW DO I BOOK YOU? First, see if your date is available! Then we’ll chat over the phone and discuss your desires. I require a $1500 retainer and your e-signature on my e-contract to book your event date.
DO YOU TRAVEL? Yessss! I’ve shot weddings in 15 US states and have been to 8 countries on five continents. Inquire for details!
DO YOU WORK WITH THE LGBTQ COMMUNITY? Of course. I celebrate all love, marriages and families!
WHERE DID YOU GO TO SCHOOL? I didn’t! I’m self taught and have been running this business since 2009. I’m a member of Fearless Photographers which inspires me to push myself to create more awesome and purely candid 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- $350 per session, $400-1600 per wedding).
