Authentic & Story-Driven Documentary Style Photography
From what to bring to your shoot, to how to not feel nervous, this quick guide covers everything!
Just hit next to get started!
You if fill out the contact form the first thing you’ll get is a automated message so you know I got your message.
Then I’ll send an email answering any questions and with more detailed pricing and info inside. From there you can ask any questions through a call or email.
If you chose to book I’ll send over the contract and booking info. Once the retainer is paid you’ll be booked!
Next that I will send the first of two questionnaires. The 1st is just basic info like venue location address, and names. I’ll also send a link to a hidden guide to help you keep planning and be informed of all options and ideas I have.
Then we’ll plan the engagement session. (Or bridal) I try to have them planned asap and done at least 2 months before the wedding. Once that’s planned you can send any other info you want me to have and I'll keep it in your file.
We've planned out the who, what, and where, so now it's time to shoot. I'll help you choose a location, time and outfit if you need it! And I’ll also provide education and tips on how to prepare.
Then we’ll do the shoot and I’ll edit the images and have them back to you in 2 weeks!
After the engagement session is done, it’s pretty smooth sailing. I’ll send the 2nd questionnaire 2 weeks before your big day!
This one will help me build your timeline. Along with any timelines and info you/your planner will come up with. My timeline is just slightly different as I’m running around capturing all the parts of the day.
Then it’ll be wedding time! By this point I’ll already know where to go and what to shoot, but you’ll be able to text me if anything changes last min. I’ll show up and start with details and keep going until the wedding is over!
While you enjoy your family and friends, I'll be set to capture the day as it happens!
Your photos will be delivered two weeks after your shoot via an online gallery. You do have print rights which means you can print everything where-ever you want!
However your gallery does come with a shop section and if you'd like you can use that for announcements, prints, and more!
From after you have your gallery our journey together will be over. However I do shoot maternity session 😉
(And just cutie portraits 😌)
Everything you need to know right here
My goal is to give you the best wedding photography experience possible! I always recommend starting with the 8 hour collection if you know you want a full day of wedding coverage from getting ready to the exit. I recommend upgrading to 10 hours if you are having a long ceremony or a late exit.
I put a lot of time and effort into understanding what you need so that we aren't insanely pinched for time when the big day comes! But I do offer hourly coverage from my people who know they want either just the basics or are having a more intimate wedding. If you don't know which would best fit you, just lt me know when you inquire and I'll help you figure it out!
Includes: between 2-5 hours of coverage, 2 questionnaires to help with planning, print rights, a full gallery of edited images
Includes: 8 hours of photography, a second photographer, an engagement session, 2 questionnaires to help with planning, print rights, a full gallery of edited images
Hourly coverage for weddings 5 hours or less
8 hours of coverage
Upgrade from 8 hour to 10 hours - 400
Add engagement or bridal session - 450
Add second photographer to hourly collection - $50 an hour
I usually deliver between 800 - 1500+ photos. The range is due to the length of the wedding, amount of location changes (more driving = less shooting), the timeline, and more. But on a whole 8-hour traditional wedding day about 1000)
Yes! I have a small network of other wedding professionals who both work with me and have their own businesses. In the event I couldn't shoot, one of them would cover for me.
They would also have a backup photographer second shooting with them. I would still edit and deliver the gallery.
I choose from a group of people I’ve worked with in the past!
Yes with full day coverage! It can be swapped for a bridal
or day after session.
For hourly you can get one as an add on.
Yes! 25% of the total cost is due as a retainer, and the rest can be scheduled almost however you like as long as it’s paid one month before the wedding. I do a default of 4 payments spread out between booking time and wedding time.
Through an online gallery delivery service called Pic-time! You’ll be able to download high-resolution photos, use the printing studio (if you like), and know that your wedding is double backed up to the cloud.
For weddings as long as the wedding is within 2 hours of my home base then no. Otherwise I will charge for gas and possible a hotel. This is something we can discuss either over email or on a phone consultation! If it is a destination wedding I simply charge the cost of travel and meals.
No! I will do a walk through of your venue the day of (and before if it’s allowed/doable) but I almost always see the venue the day of the wedding. I will ask if there are any limitations in the planning questionnaire so I can plan accordingly.
No, sorry! Raw photos are pretty much useless unless you turn them into jpegs. So you would need that software first. And second I never give out raws.
You can do that in your final gallery! I have a shop set up that uses reliable USA-based printers. They’ll ship everything directly to you! I can help with album design or you can do it yourself!
You can also just print at your favorite printing place. I do recommend being careful where you choose when it comes to larger prints! If a third-party place has bad results there's not much I can do.
If you’re interested in booking please fill out the form below! This is the best way to get in touch with me! On weekdays please give me 1-2 days to reply. On weekends it may take longer due to shooting weddings.
