What is your photography style?
My style is a mix of photojournalistic and editorial. I spend most of the wedding day capturing things as they unfold naturally, however, 9 years in this industry has taught me that there are times when I need to step in and help guide the process. While putting your gown on, I may have you move close to a window so we get beautiful, natural light; during family portraits, I'll be organizing and making sure everyone is lined up perfectly for the photo; and during your bridals, I'll be directing you similar to the way I did at your engagement session. For things like your ceremony and reception, I blend into the background and capture all of those moments candidly and as they unfold.
What does it mean to be a hybrid photographer?
I photograph wedding days on both film and digital cameras. This gives us the quality and dreaminess of film while also having the speed of digital, ensuring your wedding day is well captured with the best possible quality.
Do you have a second shooter or assistant?
Yes! All of my packages include a second shooter/assistant for your wedding day! I have an assistant for a number of reasons; a second photographer means I have someone shooting digital backups for us throughout the day, they're also there to help me when I need an extra set of hands or to help us stay organized with your family portraits, and if the timeline does not allow for me to capture a certain part of the day (because I can't be in two places at once!), my trusted assistant will be capturing those moments for us.
Have you photographed at my venue before?
If I haven't photographed a wedding at your venue, I've likely photographed at the venue while assisting another photographer! I photograph weddings across the country, so there are many times that I haven't photographed at those particular venues before, since they're out of state. So this honestly isn't a problem! If it turns out that I haven't previously photographed at your venue, I like to do a tour with you or your planner before the wedding day; and if your wedding is out of state, I tour your venue the day before your wedding! This gives me the opportunity to understand the light we'll be working in and to scout all of the perfect locations for your photos. Like I said above, I'm a planner and I like to make sure I'm highly prepared for your wedding day and I don't leave things to chance.
What is your process like?
I would love to chat about this with you! I believe in a luxury client experience, so I'd love to show you what you can expect from our time together and how I'll be supporting you throughout your engagement up to the wedding day!
Are you available for my wedding date?
Please fill out my inquiry form so we can find out! In order to deliver the highest level of client experience to my couples, I only accept a limited amount of weddings per year. So while I may have your date open, I may have reached my capacity for the year.
What are your prices and packages?
I would love to discuss my rates with you! After you've filled out an inquiry form, I'll be in touch within 24 hours so we can setup a time to talk either in person or over the phone. Once I've learned more about your wedding day, I can send over my four carefully curated collections. If your wedding day needs something a bit more custom, I can always create a customized collection just for you. Most of my collections fall between $4800-$9600.
How do we book you for our wedding?
If you liked what you heard and saw at our consultation meeting, fantastic, I'm so excited to be working with you! To reserve your wedding date, I require a signed contract and a non-refundable retainer deposit of one-third of your total package. After I've received your contract and deposit, you are officially on my calendar and I will no longer accept inquiries for your wedding date.
Have more questions for me? Great, I'd love to answer them!
