Welcome. I'm glad you've made it here, and I'm excited that you're interested in working together. Your wedding day is a collaboration between your adventurous love, and my vision of how to photograph it. The more trust and understanding we have between each other, the greater the photographs we can create. My work is not for everybody, and hopefully, since you've made it this far, you know you're in the right place. I am passionate about what I do and therefore I want to take on work I feel completely inspired by and fitting to the way I see things. 
I tend to shoot very intimate & mostly outdoor weddings. Cliff-side with your closest friends + family; on the coast with couples who make time for a little adventure in their day; non-traditional, no-wedding-party, get-ready-in-a-cabin kind of feels. Of course, everyone does things their own way, and that's what makes each wedding I photograph unique. You don't have to fit a mold, and you don't have to be super outdoorsy, but my type of people do things their own way - my passion is photographing people in their most natural and comfortable state - while being themselves.
So if you're following your heart to the fullest, let's meet in that place and make some beautiful frames of a day that's made to celebrate you + your commitment to love.

-


Q: How do we book?
A: A 50% deposit and signed contract is needed to hold your date & book your session. Remaining 50% due upon date of shoot.
I'll need both you and your fiancé's e-mail address to send out the contract for electronic signature. 

Q: How can we pay you?
A: I accept payment via Paypal (there is a fee), Square cash, Venmo & good ol’ fashion check-in-the-mail.

Q: Do you travel for weddings & photo sessions?
A: Yes, I most definitely do! If you can provide me a place to stay & pay for my transportation, I will be there. 

Q: What do we get?
A: You’ll get way more than your money’s worth. One-two hours of shoot/adventure time for engagements & shoot-time of chosen collection for weddings. A complete set of the edited hi-res images delivered in an online gallery for you to download & use for whatever you like.
Share them with friends & family, print them for your walls, use them for life.


 


Q: What equipment do you use? 
A: I use a Canon 5D Mark III, prime lenses (meaning, they don’t zoom so I move around a lot; reason being, better glass & wider aperture to let the light in.)  a tilt-shift lens, and a mounted flash when it gets too dark for my camera to see.

Q: Do you bring a second shooter? 
A: I offer a second photographer as an add-on. If you will be getting ready separately or you think you’d like some extra angles on your day, this is for you. 
(recommended for larger weddings especially - I can only be one place at one time).

Q: Do you back up our photos? 
A: I do, but it is completely up to you to keep your files safe once they are in your hands. I recommend cloud storage (online) as the best way (Amazon prime has unlimited photo/video storage), as hard drives and flash drives will eventually fail.

Q: What is your turnaround time?
A: Turnaround time for weddings is 4-6 weeks; this allows me the time I need to edit, create albums, and get the full collection of images delivered.
