what to expect

When you choose to work with me, you can expect a blend of professionalism with an even-tempered approach. To begin our journey together, I find it very helpful to connect via either a phone call or video chat. This allows us to ensure compatibility and alignment with your wedding vision. During this initial conversation, I'm eager to learn about not just your photography needs, but the entirety of your wedding plans. Drawing from my experience and expertise, I'll make sure to present a collection with options that best suit your needs.

Once you've selected a collection, I'll prepare a contract for your review and signature. Upon confirmation, a 40% non-refundable retainer is required to secure your date. From there, I remain readily available for ongoing communication in the months and weeks leading up to your special day.

FAQ's

HOW DO YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
I hope you are able to get a feel of my style from viewing my portfolio. If I were to describe my style, I would say that I'm committed to ensuring every aspect of your special day is captured beautifully, so you can cherish these moments for a lifetime. At a wedding, my goal is twofold: to authentically document the moments and to ensure those images capture the essence of what's meaningful to you. Past couples have often remarked on the enjoyable experience of working with me, noting that I have an ability for putting them at ease in front of the camera.

WHAT CAN WE EXPECT IF WE HIRE YOU TO PHOTOGRAPH OUR WEDDING?
Expect nothing less than a friendly demeanor coupled with prompt, transparent communication and a positive outlook. With over 13 years immersed in the wedding industry and over 15 years devoted to photography as my full-time profession, rest assured, you're in capable hands. Leveraging my creative expertise, I'll ensure you not only feel and look your best but that your images are nothing short of stunning and unforgettable.

HOW LONG UNTIL WE SEE OUR WEDDING PHOTOS?
As someone who's famously impatient when waiting for photos, I truly understand the anticipation you might feel. That's why I'm committed to providing you with a sneak peek within a day or two after your wedding, ensuring you don't have to rely solely on others' cell phone snapshots. Your complete gallery will follow within 2 months after the sneak peek, allowing you to relive every moment of your special day at your leisure.

HOW DO YOU PREPARE FOR OUR WEDDING?
Success in any event hinges on preparation. Before your wedding day arrives, I'll be there to assist you in navigating your photography requirements. Whether it's planning family photo groupings, or accommodating any other specific requests, I'll ensure everything is meticulously organized. With this groundwork laid, you can relax and fully enjoy your wedding day, knowing that your photography journey is set to begin seamlessly.

WHAT IF I DON’T FEEL COMFORTABLE GETTING MY PHOTO TAKEN?
From my experience, I've found that nearly 95% of individuals express similar sentiments: they want to feel at ease and appear natural in front of the camera. Drawing upon years of experience working with diverse personalities, my primary aim is to ensure you not only look your best but also enjoy the photography process. I meticulously consider factors such as your outfit choice, lighting conditions, and overall setup to optimize every shot for exceptional results.
