My approach to your day is Candid-Documentary, I am the photographer that steps back and allows you to live in the moments with your other half, your family + friends, while documenting the tears, the smiles, and all of the in-betweens. I’ll step in and direct when I sense that you are looking for what is next and during the parts of the day like getting ready + family portraits. I’m always observing + people watching(my fav!) for those candids and have my eye out for details that need to be documented too.

Hell yes! In your very first email back from me, you will be receiving a couple full gallery links of real weddings similar in style to the one you’re planning. So you can get an idea of exactly how your gallery is delivered and what you can expect when the day is all said and done :) 

Of course. These photos are yours to hold on to and look back on and you will be getting all of the usable photos, with my edits. I won’t deliver photos where you are blinking, or photos that are unflattering (because who wants those?) but all of the rest are yours! I hand pick every photo to be edited, in the editing process I have created a style to keep the colors as close to as real as they look in person, bringing out some warmer tones while still keep true skin tones and real greens and not saturating colors.

You can expect 400+ photos delivered in your final gallery, this number varies depending on hours of coverage + the events of your day. From this gallery, you can print + download High Resolution photos. The gallery link is also a great way to share all the photos with family + friends!

YESSS! I'm deeply in love with Black + White. Black and White roots back to my roots of shooting film, you can expect about 25% of the final gallery is delivered in B+W. There is no rhyme or reason, it's just how I see a photo when I'm in the editing process - the artist in me . Black and white freezes time, and really brings you deeper into the emotions of the photo.

ASAP! I know what it’s like to be photographed and excited to see the photos + share. You will receive a sneak peak of about ten images within 24 hours of your session or wedding, and a slideshow within 48 hours of your wedding. Your final gallery will be delivered within two weeks of your engagement session and within four weeks of your wedding.

I primarily shoot weddings on my own, but I do have second photographers along side of me from time to time. For Second Photographers they are an add on option, as we begin to talk about the details of your day, I will be 100 percent honest with you whether you need one or not, and talk about the options! My second photographers are chosen from my network and are full-time wedding photographers with similar style + experience as myself, that I have worked with before. 

Add ons to the package you choose can be extra hours of coverage, Engagement sessions, or 2nd photographers. We can chat and see if any of these may be a good fit for what you have planned. 

In addition, once your photos are all delivered to you, I highly recommend getting them off of your screen and printed in a tangible item that you can hold, enjoy, and pass down. I offer custom (gorgeous) leather albums, where I personally help you with the designing + ordering, through a professional album company that I love. I have sample albums for you to check out too! 

Of course, I recommend prints, they are a great way to display your favorite photos in your home, and also make great gifts. Through your private online gallery, there is a store where you can purchase prints through my professional lab. I too have samples of these for you to check out if you would like, the papers have an amazing feel, and are archival, so they last for years to come.

I believe meeting prior to your wedding is a game changer because then we actually know each other pretty well by the time your day rolls around. I highly suggest engagement sessions for this, because often times you’ve never been photographed before. This gives you a really good idea of what to expect on your wedding day and a sense of what it’s like to hang out! We’ll definitely be starting our session by grabbing coffee or a beer at a spot near by. My engagement sessions are a little longer than most so we really get to hang out and get to know each other. 

Fingers crossed this never happens. But not to worry, I have a plan in place for this and it’s covered in my contract. I will have a photographer that I know and trust (that same network of photographers that I have as my seconds) to cover the shooting portion of your wedding + I personally will still edit / deliver your photos to you.

Send me a Message through the ‘Book’ tab and let’s get this started! After a few emails back and forth, and a Phone Call or Facetime to get to know each other, you will save your date on my calendar by signing a contract and paying a non-refundable $1,000 retainer. Which is all done through my online booking website!
