This is why I love to start with a video chat. Let's be honest, you can only tell so much from a website! Through a video chat we are able to connect, get to know one another, and see if we would be a good fit for each other!
Just as much as you should secure a photographer who is skilled and knowledgable, you should find someone who you connect with! The relationship that you have with your photographer can be reflected in your images. When I connect with people, I am inspired, and when they connect with me, they're comfortable!
The experience you have with your photographer is reflected in your photos
Don't leave without saying hi!
I'm so glad you found me! Reach out and let's get to know each other a bit. I want to hear all about you and this time in your life!
Fill out an inquiry form and let me know what kind of session you're interested in!
It's okay to have fun
Get in Touch
Too many times people tell me that they are worried about being awkward in photos, but honestly - I love the awkward. I embrace the awkward.
Photos should be fun and not too serious! We can run around, make each other laugh, play some good music and capture memories instead of poses!
A: I suggest looking into booking your photographer as soon as you have your date figured out. Most couples book within three days of inquiring with me! I open my calendar 18 months in advance.
Q: When should we book our photographer?
A: Definitely! Most venues these days won't allow photographers to shoot there without insurance. It was one of the very first things I set up when creating my business!
Q: Do you have insurance?
A: Oh lord no, you don't want that! I generally end up with around 2,000-5,000 images following a wedding. A good portion of them are unusable images ... out of focus, overexposed or uninteresting. There are a lot of practice frames from throughout the day. It's my job to cull through these images and select the images that do the best job of cohesively telling your story.
Q: Do we receive all of the RAW files?
Q: What do your wedding photography packages include?
A: All of my wedding photography packages include delivery of high resolution professionally edited digital files in an on-line gallery. Other available options are an engagement session, a bridal or boudoir session, a second shooter or additional hours of coverage. Feel free to ask for more details or suggest a custom package. I love getting creative with packages!
Q: Do you take breaks? If you require a meal break, are we required to provide the meal for you?
A: I try to stay busy during the whole day, but a wedding day is long and takes a lot of energy. In order to keep my energy up, I do ask that I am provided a hot meal on your wedding day (probably a good time to mention that I follow a gluten-free vegan diet due to some food allergies). I do pack snacks to eat throughout the day to try and keep my energy up, but there is nothing better than a hot meal after a hard day of work! Not only is it incredibly appreciated, but it helps recharge me so that I am completely ready to go for photos during the reception.
Q: What kind of camera equipment do you typically bring with you on a wedding day?
A: I shoot with two camera bodies during a wedding and an array of lenses. I prefer to shoot prime lenses and joke that I have a built-in zoom (my legs haha). I do carry back up batteries, memory cards, etc. I try to shoot primarily with natural light, but I am aware this is not always the case so I do bring some lighting gear with me. Here’s my entire kit if you’re interested in checking it out!
Q: How long until we receive our finished gallery?
A: I share preview images and sometimes a small gallery in the days after your wedding. The full gallery of all images is typically ready in 8-9 weeks for weddings and 2-3 weeks for engagement photos. You’ll receive your photos through a link to your gallery for viewing, downloading, sharing and ordering prints.
Q: Do you have experience shooting in different lighting situations?
A: Yes! I am comfortable working in all types of lighting conditions. I can use available light (my favorite), or I have the ability to work with flash.
