Whether you’re planning an intimate ceremony surrounded by your closest friends and family or an elegant celebration – extended cousins and all – the fact remains that the only tangible things you’ll have left at the end of one of the best days of your life is your boo and your photos.

These are the photos you will cherish for a lifetime, that your children and your children’s children will look through as they sit on your living room floor. These are the photos that you will frame, that you will hold, that will remind you of just how loved you are and will hopefully, in turn, remind you to share that love every day.

Frequently Asked Questions

• How long have you been shooting?

11+ years. I was 16 when I found my first SLR, it was in an antique store in a shoebox with a manual. I bought the whole set for $40, read the manual, and taught myself how to shoot film and use a camera.

The rest has been history.

• When can we expect our photos back?

4-6 weeks during slow season (November - March)
6-8 weeks during busy season (April-October)

• How many weddings do you normally take on per year?

30 ; I value providing my couples with the intentional time that they deserve and need. In order to best serve my couples it's important for me to limit the number of weddings I take on per year.

• What do you enjoy shooting most?

I've always been a big believer that love is in the little things... I really enjoy documenting all of the small moments that unfold throughout a wedding day. When families and friends come into the mix I really start to see how their love through a lifetime has made the couple who they are and helped develop how they love.

The little moments always seem to piece together the bigger picture.

Outside of weddings I really love working with other creatives - stylists, makeup artists and artists. I've found that through collaboration I've really grown so much in my medium and understanding of light, color and shapes. It also allows me to bring forth new techniques that I otherwise wouldn't develop.

• What should we wear to our session?

All of my clients receive an engagement tip guide where I go over a bit of outfit color theory and help you guys figure out which colors/clothing will best suit your environment.

• How do you approach weddings?

My approach is photojournalistic, yet remains unique to each couple - starting with our first phone call we delve deep into the connection you share and what you value most. Through understanding each of my couple's temperaments, concerns, and day-of needs, I am able to create an experience that is tailored to you.

On your wedding day, I only insert myself to guide you into optimal light for portraits, couples portraits, and group formals

(don't worry, you'll have fun through it all).

• How many photos will we get back?

While I don't like to give out hard numbers for this question you can usually expect 50-100 photos per hour of coverage.

• Do you shoot with backup?

Always. I always bring my backup gear to weddings. In addition to that your images are being backed up as I shoot onto two separate cards within each of my cameras. Your wedding images are backed up to two separate hard drives as soon as I get home and your wedding day cards do not get reused until your gallery has been delivered.
At all times there are three copies of your wedding day images until you full gallery has been fully edited and delivered.

If you'd like to know more about my back up process don't hesitate to ask.

• Can we get our photos ahead of your standard turn around time?

Rush orders are available and are normally outsourced to my editor.
The cost of a rush order is $1,500 and you can expect your images within 10 business days.

• Do you offer payment schedules?

Sure thing, 50% of the total balance is due at booking and is considered your retainer. The remaining balance can be split up into 3 payments. Your final payment is due two months prior to your event date.

• How do we book you?

If we haven't talked yet, we'll want to schedule a phone call or in-person meeting. It's important to ensure my couples are with the right photographer and that we're a good match for one another prior to moving forward. Once we all agree we're three peas in a pod it'll take a signed contract and 50% of your retainer to get your date in my books.

• What if you can't make it to our wedding?

While I would only miss your wedding if I were ill to the point of hospitalization/immobility, a highly trained professional wedding photographer from my inner community of photographers I trust with my business (and have worked with in the past) would take my place and shoot your wedding for me. I would still handle all of the culling, editing and image delivery.
But while we're on this subject, during high tide wedding season I take my vitamins daily, emergen-c with probiotics (daily) and wellness formula if I happen to sneeze. In addition to maintaining a strong immune system I actively run and do yoga to maintain my strength, stamina, and mental well being throughout your wedding day.
