WHAT IS YOUR SHOOTING STYLE?

My shooting style is relaxed and natural. I aim to keep things simple and document the events of the day without making it a checklist. I find that being more relaxed helps others to just be themselves.

The photographs that I create come from a vision that represents you as a couple, or as an individual, and me as a photographer.

Rather than posing for every image, I focus on the in between moments, catching the connections that people make with one another. I love capturing light, pure happiness, and the natural tone of your every day life; because that is what you can relate to most years down the road.

WHAT MAKES A GOOD PHOTOGRAPHER?

Understanding, compassion, truth, connection, composition, and light.

WHEN WILL WE GET OUR PHOTOGRAPHS?

My timeline for family and portrait sessions is typically 2 weeks. For weddings and engagements, it varies from 4-6 weeks.

HOW MANY PHOTOGRAPHS DO WE GET?

For portrait and family sessions, I give you 60-200 photographs. For wedding collections and engagements, I give you 300-1000 photographs depending on the length of coverage.

 

WHAT ARE SOME ASPECTS WE NEED TO KEEP IN MIND WHEN PLANNING OUR WEDDING?

Just remember that this is YOUR day. Be who you are, love one another, and the rest will fall into place.

Aside from this, just be aware of lighting and location. I want to help you get the best images possible. Giving me at least an hour before sunset would be ideal. Scoping out the location ahead of time will give you a better idea of where to situate yourselves so that the lighting is good for both of your faces and figures. For location, sometimes less is more. Busy backgrounds can make for distracting photos. Just try to find natural, even lighting for the best images!

DO WE NEED TO CREATE A TIMELINE AND SHOT LIST?

Yes, please do! This will help me to stay organized and ensure that you get all the images that you most want to have.

WILL WE GET SNEAK PEEKS?

Of course! I want to be able to give you a little something to hold you over. It usually takes me about 72hrs to send you a couple of sneak peeks.

 

WE’RE AWKWARD IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA, WHAT DO WE DO ABOUT THAT?

I get asked this question often, even from people that you might consider very photogenic at first glance. Part of my job as a photographer is to help make you feel comfortable, spark a connection with you, and just let you be you! Just remain open minded, bring your personality, and remember why you’re there. Think of what draws you to your person or your family and reflect on that. I promise it will come out in the photographs.

HOW DO WE BOOK YOU?

All I need is a signed contract and a 30% retainer to secure your spot on my calendar.

Do you give the RAW files?

No. I believe that editing is half the magic that goes into your images and without this huge step the images are only halfway done. I promise to never leave any photos out that you’ll want/need, and if you feel I missed delivering a photo, just ask! I won’t let you miss out on your memories!

What if the weather is bad?

I always encourage embracing whatever weather comes our way. It makes for beautiful and unique photos. If the weather is too harsh, we can reschedule our shoot.

 

Anything I didn’t address?

Shoot me a message and I’ll take care of that!
I usually respond within a few hours.
