I am so happy you have found yourself here! I love to capture moments that are precious beyond formal styled pictures or poses. Your story should reflect the authenticity of your wedding day, the unique love and bond between yourselves and those that are celebrating with you. It is so important for me to connect with clients that value capturing their story in a truthful and photojournalistic way. Trust between both myself and my clients to be able to create art in this nature is very important so that I can capture the story most unique to your relationship. 

cherish telling my bride and groom's stories through unscripted moments that piece together their wedding day as a larger story.

y biggest goal and what I value most is that every gallery I send shares your story. Therefore each gallery on average has around 100 images for each hour of the wedding day scheduled with the photographer. My galleries do not focus on just portraits, but mix in the quieter moments that you may not otherwise see on your wedding day.

01. How many photographs will I receive?

very wedding gallery is organized into each main section of the day so it is easy to find and locate photographs. As mentioned before, telling your story is extremely important to me, and I set up your gallery so that you may be able to see the story unfold. Each section of the gallery is organized in the time the events occur during the day. I’d be more than happy to send you an entire gallery to view. This is the best way to get a full picture of any photographer’s style and vibe beyond what you see on instagram or the website. Please ask away and I am happy to send over galleries!

02. What will my gallery look like?

bsolutely!! Most venues also will want this to be sent to them in advance. We go over this during our timeline together, but you can check with your venue if this is a requirement, and the contact information of the person best to send it to.

03. Do you have insurance?

hotographs will take 8 weeks to be edited and sent to you. Lots of care and time is put into each and every single photograph by myself during the editing process to deliver to you the highest quality.

04. How long will it take for me to receive my photographs?

make sure to photograph the entire wedding on two cards at once to ensure a backup during the day. Your photographs will be backed up on two different hard drives on my end immediately following your day, and I save your online gallery for two years before it expires. Photographs are precious, and I always recommend that once your gallery is delivered you take the necessary steps to back them up on a hard drive that you own separate from your download on the computer. Additional storage options are available through the Studio.

05. Will you have backups of my photographs saved?

shoot on two Canon camera bodies - Mark III and Mark IV with multiple lenses that I use throughout the day to grab different creative shots.

06. Do you have backup equipment!

es :) There is a beautiful professional company that I am linked to on your online web gallery that allows you to purchase images right away. The gallery also allows you to send the link to family members so that they may also purchase the images that are important to them or download the images directly to their hard drives. Additional pricing for albums can be sent upon request!
