2. What’s your process like leading up to my wedding?
3. Can you help me with prints and albums?
4. How do you direct your clients?
5. What is your style?
6. How do you choose what’s important to photograph?

I value communication + comfort as well as capturing stunning images for you. I believe great communication and feeling comfortable with your photographer are the keys to getting the images you always wanted.

My process starts with getting to know my clients so I know exactly how I can best serve them. I do this through questionnaires, engagement sessions and helping them with timelines and shots lists.

I definitely can! Prints are so important after your wedding day. you don't want to just leave all those beautiful images on your computer or USB.

I use my own special mix of posing and prompts with gentle guidance. This means you'll never have to worry about how you look AND you'll have fun doing it!

My style is cinematic with a touch of realism. Your colors are going to be just like the day you got married. your images will be filled with  a mix of candid images and posed photographs.

I choose what's most important to photograph by observing the moments that unfold, knowing who is most important to you and by asking what is most important to you.

I deliver images via USB, customized with my clients names. I want you to have a copy of your images, instead of an online gallery that expires.

I deliver 5 to 7 sneak peeks within 24 hours of your wedding. The rest of your images are then hand edited and delivered within 8 weeks.

I quote 50 to 75 images per hour of shooting. This means you'll receive between 500 and 750 images from a 10 hour day.

Most of my packages include an engagement session. I believe engagement sessions are a great time to get to know your photographer and what it's like to work with them.
