What You Can Expect From Me
Artistic + Unique Images
I love to try new things, break all of the rules, experiment with different techniques and create images that would be nearly impossible to recreate. I want to give you unique photos that aren’t just recreations of Pinterest images. That include motion and genuine emotion.
Heart + Soul
I’m the type of person who puts in 110% into everything I commit to. I want these images to blow you away, to be unique to you, your love story and really capture the essence of who you are as couple. I'm going to pour everything I've got into this.
A Personalized Experience
I want to be here throughout the whole process for any concerns or questions that arise. I want to give you recommendations and advice if you need it. I want to be a friend, someone you can rely on and trust to help make your photos everything you've dreamed of.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Many Photos Can We Expect?
I wanna spoil ya’ and give you so many photos that you have no idea what to do with them all.
For WEDDINGS I deliver a minimum of 800+ gorgeous hand-edited photographs and 200+ for ENGAGEMENTS.
How Long Do We Have to Wait for Our Photos?
I don’t want you to have to wait around forever because I’m just as excited as you are to show your photos to everyone. I ALWAYS post some sneak peeks to tide you over.
Weddings are delivered in 6-8 weeks or less, Engagements are delivered in 4-6 weeks or less and Wedding Films are delivered in 2-4 months or less.
How will you send us our photos?
I send over all the edited photos to you in an online proofing + print ordering gallery where you can view the images, share with family + friends, download them, and order professional quality prints through me if you wanna.
For weddings I also send over a flash drive of the images for you to keep forever and ever.
We are awkward. Will you tell us what to do?
Yes, yes yes! The very beginning of a shoot always feels a little awkward as you get used to being in front of a camera, together (it's totally normal.) I have a ton of little tricks and poses that will help you relax right into those gorgeous natural feeling images.
I also really can't say enough good things about doing an engagement session with me before your wedding. It just makes the photos on your wedding day SO much better because you get used to how I work and "pose" and you get over the awkward parts pre-wedding when we have a limited time frame to actually get into the really natural images. Trust me, it's SO worth it.
Do we need a second photographer?
I photograph about 75% of my weddings solo. I feel more than confident in being able to capture the moments you would expect and provide tons of variety (I always shoot with two cameras equipped with various lens lengths so I can get a variety of up-close and far away images.)
With that being said if your wedding is really large (250+ guests, a bridal party with 16+ members,) your getting ready locations are really far away from each other and/or your venue, or you just have a lot of activities going on at the same time, it might be essential to have a second photographer.
Also, if you book me for photography AND videography there will be someone else with me that day to make sure nothing is missed. More than likely that someone will be my fiance, Nate who is a wiz at recording great sound for video and capturing amazing footage and images!
Will you travel for weddings?
Heck yes! I’ve been all over the U.S., England and France. I love traveling and would be more than willing to explore somewhere with you.
Typically I require 2 nights of hotel accommodations, airfare, and a rental car. In some cases only hotel accommodations may be applicable so just send me an email and we can talk logistics.
Do you have insurance?
How do we make it official?
I require a signed contract (that outlines a bazillion worst-case-scenario-situations) and 25% of the package fees up front as a non-refundable retainer to secure your date. The rest I split into 3 payments that are spread out with the final amount due one month out from your wedding date.
