Memories matter. And how those memories are photographed matters.
My style is about photographing your story as it unfolds before me. I love the moments in-between the obvious stuff. I love waiting for moody light, standing back, and anticipating the good stuff. I also like to request some time on your day to be alone with you in order to create some meaningful photographs for you. Wedding days are long so I love getting some moments with you where you are breathing and relaxed. Sure, it’s the biggest day of your life, but in the end, it’s just all about the two of your together and I’d love some time alone with you to let the magic happen.
This is why I like to talk in details about timelines and making the most of your big day. If this speaks to your heart, then I’m all in, too.
You don’t get married every day, so I’m sure you have a lot of questions on how this all works. I’m happy to answer some initial questions for you here. When you’re ready, I’m happy to meet and chat over coffee to get all the little details about your wedding day.
WILL WE RECEIVE DIGITAL FILES OF OUR PHOTOGRAPHS?
Of course!! You will receive your images through an online digital gallery. This gallery allows you to share and download the high resolution files of all of your photographs. You can also order special prints through the online system, as well.
CAN WE PRINT OUR OWN PHOTOGRAPHS?
Absolutely! You can print your images anywhere you’d like. Although I definitely have some recommendations on where you can get the best prints.
HOW MANY IMAGES WILL I RECEIVE?
You can expect a minimum of 50-60 images per hour of photography coverage.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECEIVE OUR PHOTOGRAPHS?
You can expect to receive your complete digital gallery in 8-12 weeks. During the busy months of May-December it can definitely take the full 12 weeks. I know it can feel like an eternity, but I like to make sure it’s all looked at closely and done right. Once you’ve waited, you have a lifetime to enjoy:)
DO YOU OFFER PAYMENT PLANS?
Yes. After the initial non-refundable retainer of $600, you have the choice of how you’d like to break up the balance. You can make payments on the balance at your convenience, too. However, the complete balance is due 2 weeks prior to your wedding day.
CAN WE EXCHANGE THE GIFTED ENGAGEMENT SESSION FOR SOMETHING ELSE?
The engagement, bridal or boudoir session is just a something I offer as a way to get to know each other before your wedding day. If you aren’t able to use the gift, I completely understand. However, it cannot be exchanged for something else.
HOW DO YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE? Authentic. My approach to your wedding day is, for the most part, to be that fly on a wall. My instinct is to document the day in an authentic, beautiful and romantic way. For the shots of the two of you, while I will definitely lead the way, I want to showcase your authentic selves and capture it as beautifully as possible.
DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS? ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS?
Absolutely! I love destination weddings and engagement sessions. Please contact me with details about your wedding and I will send you a separate price list for destination weddings. For destination engagement sessions, we can work it into your weddings package. I’ve photographed engagement sessions in Dallas, Austin, and NYC. I’ve photographed weddings in Los Angeles and various places in Mexico. I’m happy to add your location to the list.
HOW DO WE ARRANGE YOUR TRAVEL?
I will book my own airfare, hotel and transportation. Once it’s all agreed upon and included in your contract, I take care of the rest. If you do have specific pricing at a hotel that’s blocked just for you, I’m happy to stay where you are.
