COVID19 has postponed ceremonies, made guest lists smaller, and invented the concept of the zoom-wedding.
At all times I do my very best to be in compliance with CDC, OHA, and my county's COVID restrictions. I will be wearing a mask, washing my hands, and giving you more verbal directions to maintain appropriate distance. I am happy to help with suggestions for wedding plans A-Z to make sure that your day is safe and joyful. If you need referrals for other vendors or additional services please don't hesitate to reach out.
Why do you love weddings so much?
Whenever you've done something for long enough people seem to assume that you're probably bored with it... I don't understand how this could even be possible with weddings.
I get to be part of someone's best day ever almost every weekend! How could that be boring?!?! While many weddings have similar stuctures the personality is all in the details. The facial expressions, hand-crafted invitations, seasonal flowers, tears, heirloom pieces for your something old, thoughtful vows, and of course the anticipation.
My superpower is capturing memories. And I can think of no better way for me to serve.
How would you describe your style?
My work is story-focused with every detail and candid moment thoughtfully composed. I strive for authenticity, not just in the relationships I cultivate with each couple, but also in how I view and capture their vision.
Most contemporary wedding photographers are self-taught, and while that would have saved me a lot of money, I have a formal education in photography. I frame things more like a designer, and search for emotion like a painter.
One thing that I did teach myself was post-production and the first thing I learned was that it's not magical. I maintain a very light hand in the digital darkroom and would much rather take 30 seconds to fix some rogue hairs than spend extra time on the computer.
What's included with your service?
Wedding photography includes an engagement session and all the wedding knowledge I've aquired to date.
Every couple receives a 30-day online gallery to share and a jump-drive with fully edited photos. The gallery also doubles as a shopping cart so that your friends and family can order prints at their own convenience.
What's your booking process?
Reserving my services for your wedding day is a pretty simple process. After confirming via email that I'm available for your date and location we'll meet in person or over Skype to ensure that we're a good match. You'll receive an information/welcome kit full of helpful tips, studio policies, and all the paperwork you need to make your reservation.
I require a 50% non-refundable* deposit to reserve your date with all your paperwork signed by BOTH of you. You'll receive copies of your signed paperwork and your deposit check in the mail promptly. Your balance is due one week BEFORE your wedding date.
What's your starting price?
I believe in telling your whole love story; in being your visual voice.
This begins with full-day service for maximum documentation and photographic opportunities. Wedding coverage starts at $3000, but most couples invest between $3500-$4000.
Elopements with no more than 10 people in attendance can be reserved starting at $750.
