How long have you been shooting?
I bought my first DSLR around 5 years ago. That's when I began shooting any and everything, but I developed a love for weddings and families. I've been shooting professionally for 4 years, and I've shot about 60 weddings total.
Where do you like to shoot portrait sessions?
Anywhere with great light. I encourage a place where you can get comfortable, have fun, and be intimate. My personal favorite place to shoot is right in people’s homes, where most of your memories are made.
What is your booking process?
Once we've either spoken by phone or met over coffee, I will send you a contract and a list of payment methods. For portrait sessions, I require a 50% deposit to secure your spot, and the remainder is collected right after the session. For weddings, I require a 25% deposit, and the remaining balance is due 10 days before the wedding date.
When can I expect my photos?
Editing takes time and I do not to rush the process to ensure that what you're getting is my best. My turnaround time for portrait sessions is 2-3 weeks, and for weddings and events it's up to 5 weeks. I don’t post everything I shoot on social media, but I will send you a set of sneak peeks within the week of your wedding/shoot.
How many photos can we expect?
It depends on the day and what exactly is in the schedule. A typical wedding of 6-8 hours is usually about 500-900 photos. For a portrait session, about 30 - 50. My delivery includes a private online gallery with high res, edited images for you to print and share.
What is a first look?
A first look is when the bride and groom meet before the wedding ceremony. This is typically done for a couple of reasons:
1. If your wedding ceremony begins at sunset, but you don't want to sacrifice daylight portraits. It also allows more time for portraits.
2. It gives you a chance to hug, kiss, and have alone time. It can be as intimate and special as you want. Sometimes its the only way you will get this kind of time together on your wedding day. Although it's not traditional, I find it to be way more emotional and intimate than seeing each other down the aisle in front of 100+ other people. But that’s me.
Do you shoot alone?
I shoot alone for portrait sessions and small weddings, but during larger events of over 120 guests, I usually have a second shooter. I choose second shooters who are professionals, who will happy to be at your wedding, and have a similar eye/style to mine.
What is your approach/process?
Photographing couples and families for 5 years has led me to understand that nobody is exactly the same. I mean, that’s a given, but it's the same when you’re in front of my lens for at least an hour. You might not get the same results as another couple, because your interactions, your chemistry, your love looks different than every one else’s. I always keep that in mind. The queues and prompts that work for one person, might not work for another. Trendy poses aren’t my thing either, because they will date and expire. I observe and let you be you, with gentle directions and little interference. I want you to see yourself in your photos, not a version you think you should be.
