WHAT IT’S LIKE HIRING ME AS YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER

im real, honest, + fun

The relationships I’ve built with my couples are so special to me. They are the reason I continue to do what I love, and fuel the soul of this business. I’m not the type of photographer that just delivers photos, takes the check and calls it a day. That’s just not me.

I’m the photographer that helps bustle your dress, keeps track of your timeline, makes sure your hair is not sticking up awkwardly, watches for hair-ties on the wrist, and always lets you know if you have anything stuck in your teeth.

I’m the friend that hugs you when your feeling nervous, the friend that is smiling so big when your reading your vows to each other, and the friend that you can trust with your memories.

I invest so much time into my couples from the second they book. I’m always a text away and here to guide them in the right direction. Whether it’s vendor recommendations, wedding timeline tips, wedding planning advice, or lighting advice for the dreamiest photos. I’m here for them.

 

How I approach my work

From the small details to the big feelings and every moment in between. They all matter.

My style of shooting and editing is reflective on who my couples are and how the day felt. The more I get to know you and your vision, the better I get to capture what means most to you.

Whether is taking a lot of photos of your guests having a great time at your reception! Or making sure I get all the special details that you’ve spent hours on planning! No problem! I will photograph those moments and details for you! I’m here for you.

YOUR PHOTOS ARE MY TOP PRIORITY

So here’s the thing, I know that there are cheaper alternatives for photography, but like everything in life…you get what you pay for.

To me, my client’s photos are my top priority! I am constantly educating myself to provide the best for my clients since their photos are important to me. I’ve worked in a variety of lighting situations from windy days to extremely bright days; from indoor to outdoor weddings. I also own top of the line camera equipment and just recently added a Photo Booth (guests love this!). I can also provide you with vendor recommendations, wedding timeline tips and wedding planning advice! I’ve got you!

FAQ

  • How many images are included?

    As a minimum, for weddings, I deliver at least 400. For sessions, I deliver a minimum of 30. I don’t put a set number on how many you will receive, because I don’t want you to miss out on any memories! Basically, I never put a cap or limit on what I deliver.

  • Do you give RAWS?

    Nope, I don’t. Because editing is half the process/magic that goes into images, and without that huge step the images are only half way done. I promise to never leave out any photo you’ll want/need, and if you feel I missed delivering a photo, just ask! I’m more than happy to check about on my images and send it over to you, I won’t let you miss out on any memories.

  • How do payment schedules work?

    For weddings, I require a $1000 non-refundable deposit at the time of booking to hold your date, and the remaining is due one month prior to your wedding.

    For sessions, I require 50% non-refundable deposit at the time of booking to hold your date, and the remaining 50% due the day of your shoot.

  • Can you photoshop us to look skinner/have clear skin in our photos?

    Even though I know photoshop, I don’t believe in changing your appearance in photoshop. I want to focus on making you feel and look beautiful, rather than unrealistic. So no, I don’t photoshop your bodies to appear different than they actually are. Yes, I clear up skin and remove distractions.

  • What should we wear for photos?

    Honestly, be yourself! Wear something that is comfortable and is your style! Sticking to neutral colors and refraining from bold + distracting patterns is best, but message me and I can help you choose outfits based on the location we will shoot at.

  • What if we need to cancel or reschedule?

    If you’ve already put a deposit down on a date and then have to move/cancel it, the deposit is non-refundable and a new deposit will have to be made in order to hold your new date. I do this because, I already have saved your date from any other potential clients and if we move your date I essentially lose money. Because I’m counting on that final payment to pay for bills, since I only take a limited amount of jobs per month, meaning that I depend on that money.

  • What happens if you can’t make it to our wedding?

    Heaven forbid this happens, but in the case of something crazy/out of my control happens, making me unable to make it to your wedding, then I will do my best to find a replacement photographer that I trust to come and take my place to shoot it. I’m not legally held to doing so, in the case of me or a replacement not making me or a replacement not making it to your wedding, you will be refunded.

  • What if we need to reschedule our shoot due to weather?

    We can reschedule if weather is really that awful, but some of my favorite sessions ever have been on overcast days, and extremely windy days! Embracing the weather makes for incredible photos. The only times I’ve rescheduled shoots due to weather is if my camera will be ruined by weather. We will make a decision together whether we need to reschedule or not.
