2019-2020 Wedding Information
Hello! If you have navigated your way to this page, congratulations are probably in order!
So... congratulations on your engagement!! You have come to the right place! I LOVE CAPTURING LOVE!! I love shooting, stopping individual moments in time, and being able to convey a story that you will be able to look back upon and cherish forever.
MY PHOTOGRAPHY STYLE
The style I photograph in is most commonly associated with photojournalistic – that is to say that there is very little direction coming from me; you will spend the majority of the time enjoying the day with friends and family. I strongly believe that everyone, not constrained to a minute-by-minute shot list, should enjoy a wedding. We will make time for the posed shots you desire, but for the most part I will be busy shooting everything else. This is your day, and I believe that you should spend it with the people you love and who love you, not chained to a wedding photographer. Throughout your wedding day, I will collaborate with the other vendors to ensure a seamless transition between events; your only job will be to enjoy your celebration. There’s also a very good chance that during your engagement session and wedding day you might catch me laying on the ground, climbing into trees, or getting my feet wet in order to capture your day the best way I know how. I’m a firm believer of doing anything it takes to get the shot!
MY EDITING STYLE
Most of your photo magic happens behind the scenes, when I spend hours upon hours meticulously editing your photos. My signature style is vibrant, bold, and colorful. That is what you will see represented most in my portrait and wedding galleries. However, I have always edited my boudoir photos in a "moodier" style, and over the years, some of my wedding clients have asked for me to edit their engagement and/or wedding photos in that style as well. Instead of forcing myself to choose one style (which I honestly couldn't do because I love them both), I decided to offer my clients a choice of my two favorite editing styles: vibrant or "moody". You can pick the style that resonates most with you and your fiance - and if you can't decide, I'll gladly edit your photos in both my vibrant and "moody" styles, for an added fee (to cover the additional editing time).
MY WEDDING PACKAGES
Please take a moment to peruse my wedding package options and contact me if you have any questions or would like to book me as your wedding photographer! I ask for a signed contract and nonrefundable 30% retainer to hold your date and remove it from my booking calendar for other clients. Another 30% of your invoice total is due 3 months before your wedding date. The remaining balance of 40% must be paid at least 30 days prior to your wedding. I offer both complete packages and hourly a la carte options, so that you can select exactly what you want and nothing more or less, and can find something that fits in your budget. If you still find that my packages do not meet your needs, contact me, and we can work together on creating the perfect wedding package for you! (If you’re unsure about how many hours of coverage might work best for you, I’m more than happy to help you figure that out!)
All of my wedding packages include high resolution edited digital files with permission to print, delivered in an online gallery that is live for 10 years! If you want to purchase high quality prints, canvas, vivid metals, or albums from me after your digital files have been delivered, you can do so at reasonable prices, or you can have them printed on your own using the digital files from your gallery. I want you to love my photographs and display them in your home for many years to come, so I will gladly recommend printing labs to use, as well as those to avoid. Just ask!
i love to travel!
Do you love my photographs, but are bummed because we’re not local to each other? No worries! Don’t let distance stand in the way of you receiving the images that your heart desires! I will gladly travel to you as long as my expenses are covered!
