You book me! I send a proposal and to reserve your date, you’ll sign a contract and pay a 50% deposit. We’ll also schedule your engagement session or just a happy hour to meet up. I’m a get-to-know-you-in-person kinda person.
You’ll hear back from me within 24 hours. We’ll hop on the phone and get to know each other even more. We can chat all the details, pricing, and our favorite Parks + Rec episodes.
Fill out my contact form. I’ll learn about who you are, what plans you’ve already made, and what your priorities are for photography.
My philosophy for taking photos is the same as my philosophy for everything I do for my couples: I’m a guide, not a director. I’m not going to tell you exactly what to do. This is your day, and things should be exactly how you envision them. So I’m not going to put you in a pose that you feel uncomfortable in. And I'm not going to tell you that you absolutely have to do a first look. This is about you and what you want.
Your wedding should feel like a natural extension of the two of you, not forced or performed for anyone else. Your photos should look the same way. So I’ll guide you to interact, to get cozy in whatever way feels right to you, to move, and to enjoy one another.
I’ll send you sneak peeks within one week (yes, right away!) and your full gallery within 6 weeks. You can share the gallery link with family and friends, print right through my site, or just spend hours looking at them every day.
It’s wedding day! I'm ready to go, and you will be too. We’ll spend the day together, documenting all the big events, but focusing on those special moments in-between.
About a month before the wedding, I send you a detailed questionnaire so I can create a killer timeline and make sure I know absolutely every detail I need to know to make sure I capture your day exactly like you want to remember it. Then the week of the wedding, we’ll go over any last minute questions or thoughts either of us have.
I’ll check in often throughout your planning process. Not too much though, I’m not needy, promise. I'm available for questions and advice or anything you’re curious about or need help with.
