      Working with Me

      What will working with me on your wedding day be like?

      There are a lot of different ways to answer this question, but the easiest way to describe my wedding photography approach is in a ‘documentarian’ style. Documenting the day is more of a hands-off approach; for the most part I will be observing and photographing events as they unfold with little intervention and direction. I prefer to photograph a wedding organically as it happens, as opposed to creating posed or unauthentic moments. That said, throughout the day I will occasionally step in and offer my advice on placement, location and lighting, but I avoid outright-directing a wedding so that you can experience your wedding day as you should…I want you to truly live in those moments. To create image diversity, I will add in traditional photography as well as creative and artistic photography (my favorite part!)

      practice makes perfect

      Your Engagement Session – What to Expect & How to Prepare

      The Engagement Session provides a great opportunity for us to get to know each other before your wedding day. The Engagement Session is complimentary, consider it a gift for booking a wedding with me. Your are not obligated to participate, however I strongly encourage it. Knowing and trusting your photographer is an important key to creating genuine photographs that depict who you are as a couple. It is important to me to develop an authentic connection with my clients.

      Wear something that makes you feel comfortable and confident. Patterns, bold colors and accessories photograph very well. Feel free to get creative with your wardrobe. While it is great to complement your future spouse in photos, that doesn’t mean that you need to wear matching outfits. If your other half is more comfortable in solid colors, try choosing something with a little texture. Subtle patterns are a great way to add contrast to your images. Be creative, and let your unique personality shine through.

      Plan a fun activity! Incorporate a shared interest or hobby into your session. Often times, our pets are our first “children”. I love animals – feel free to bring your pet(s) along for some fun!

      And remember, practice makes perfect. Practice your posing and smiles before your session. Trust me, it will make a difference.

      getting ready for the big day

      Your Wedding Day – What to Expect & How to Prepare

      I will be capturing one of the most important milestones in your new life together – something I take very seriously. Your wedding day will be a day full of emotion…and scrambling to get everything done on time! My best advice on your wedding day? Slow down. Take your time and enjoy yourself. Live in these moments. I know that this is much easier said than done. With so many thoughts racing through your mind, I will help to remind you to slow down, smile and above all – enjoy each and every moment.

      As a wedding photographer, it is very important for me to document the day as it is really happening – you’ll find that I will be quietly moving about in the background in some situations, and in other situations I may intervene to lightly pose or direct you.

      On your wedding day, things might not go exactly as planned. To keep stress at a minimum, I strongly encourage you to allow for extra time for photography. In the event that tasks run longer than anticipated or that anything “unscheduled” happens, having extra time padded between events will ensure that we will not miss out on photographic opportunities. During the timeline planning process, we will iron out all of the timing details to ensure that you will have peace of mind on your wedding day, rather than scrambling to accommodate any last-minute hiccups.

      Timeline Planning

      Let’s be real – weddings can be overwhelming to plan. There are so many options, so many vendors, so many moving parts…coordinating all of those variables can be stressful. But it doesn’t have to be! Throughout the planning process, I will be there for you to offer advice and help you construct a wedding day timeline that incorporates all of those important moments, while allowing us time to be creative with your photography.

       

      Creative Photography

      Make time for creative photography.

      If there is anything I would implore – please make ample time for creative photography. Most of your day will be covered in a more photo journalistic and documentary style; I will primarily photograph events as they unfold. To create diversity throughout the day, we will plan several segments dedicated solely to creative photography. Let’s work together throughout the timeline planning process to ensure we have scheduled “alone” time for us to step aside, find a beautiful setting and landscape, and work together to execute creative images that will amaze you.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      How many images will we receive?

      This is a difficult question to answer because every wedding is different! For an average, 8 hour wedding, I will deliver approximately 300-600 fully edited photographs. This of course varies depending on many factors, but I will produce a minimum of 20 images per hour of coverage. Photography is my artwork, so I do not deliver unedited, raw image files. I personally edit and retouch every image before delivering your high resolution files.

       

      When will we receive our wedding images?

      Your images will be delivered approximately 8-12 weeks after your wedding day. Your wedding images will be cherished for a lifetime – a fact I take seriously. I personally edit all of my photographs, and I do take the extra care in making sure what I deliver to you is of the highest quality. I know that waiting for your images to be completed is hard…so I’ll provide ample sneak peeks along the way.

       

      Do you offer professional prints & albums?

      Absolutely. Every wedding package includes a high resolution download gallery where you can easily order prints from a professional lab on a variety of paper types and settings. A typical print order will ship within five days from the time your order is submitted. For my fine-art, archival prints, a custom order must be placed via email.

       

      Do you travel?

      Yes, I love to travel! Whether you’re eloping or hosting a destination wedding, I would love to travel with you to document your celebration. I love to travel and see new places when I have that elusive free weekend…you can view my adventures over on my personal blog.
