Choosing a wedding photographer is one of the most important decisions you'll make regarding your wedding day - once the cake is cut and the dancing is over, the only thing you'll have left will be your images! Because you’ll spend more time with your photographer on your wedding day than anyone else, it's so important to have someone who puts you at ease, can navigate the day, and help you remember it well.
Your wedding day is not about the photos, the photos are about your wedding day. I aim to be a constant observer, a chaos keeper, a storyteller, and your biggest fan. Your time in front of the camera should be enjoyed as much as your final images. Your finished gallery will be brimming with joyful images, candid moments, romantic portraits, and all the fun, preserved.
What is your shooting style?
I aim to be a combination of discreet and interactive on the wedding day. It's important for me to control certain parts of the day (like family portraits) to ensure we stay on schedule and to provide a great experience for you and your guests. A wedding planner or day-of coordinator can be a huge help with this! Other times, like the ceremony and the first dance, you won't even know I'm there. As much of the wedding day is photo-centric, I always work with my couples to create a thoughtfully-planned timeline that allows you to enjoy all aspects of the day while still providing breathing room to relax and have fun!
How many images can I expect?
On average, you can expect about 50-75 images per hour of coverage. The final gallery is a curated selection based on content and composition with images with unflattering expressions or technical flaws omitted. The finished gallery images are yours to keep, print, download, and share.
Is travel included in your pricing?
All wedding day travel fees are included in custom quote. Additional fees for engagement session travel may apply.
Do you shoot film?
I do! I'm a hybrid photographer - I use a mix of different mediums depending on my artistic judgment for any situation. I shoot a combination of digital, medium format, and 35mm film.
Can I customize a collection?
Absolutely. Contact me with your wish list and I'll send over a custom quote for your review.
When will we receive our images?
You can always expect a streamlined workflow and prompt turnaround from me! I know how it feels to be refreshing your email looking for the good stuff. My engagement sessions are delivered within 2-3 weeks and wedding galleries within 3-5 weeks.
How can we reserve you?
Once you've chosen your date and desired wedding collection, I'll send over a contract for your review. I ask that the contract be signed and 50% retainer fee be paid within 10 days to hold your date. The remaining photography balance is due 30 days prior to your wedding.
