Weddings are no joke. You are showcasing your commitment to each other, whether its in front of all your friends and family, only close family for intimate weekend celebration or just the two of you eloping in an epic location. It takes time to plan and design your vision. And it should be YOUR vision.

If you looked through my work, got to know a bit about me and think we are a great fit to work together, let's hop on a call. I will tailor a custom offering based on your needs. After we get to know a bit of each other and I know exactly what your wedding day vision is and what your needs are, I will tailor a custom offering for you to review and approve.
book your date
To reserve your date you will pay 25% retainer fee upon signing the contract. The rest of the payment would be required two months before the wedding. This is to ensure that you will not need to worry weeks or days before your celebration who got paid or not.
Once you booked me we will start working on your timeline with your wedding planner. It will help everything come together and run seamlessly. Let the fun begin!
This is such an important session. I encourage all my couples to book an engagement session. Why? because we get to know each other more. Get you comfortable in front of the camera. You will know what to expect and be at ease on the big day.
Engagement session are a lot of fun! Unlike a wedding day, that can be quite restrictive, engagement sessions make an excellent opportunity to create unique and unforgettable pictures. You are not limited by time, location, or how many outfits you get to wear!
As the exciting big event approaches, with your planner, we will go over everything that is needed for the wedding day or weekend. We will schedule a call to go over the timeline and any changes that are needed to be made a month before and an email confirming all the details two weeks before the wedding.
You can expect to receive your photos within 6-8 weeks after the wedding day. You will receive a personalized flash drive and photos will be delivered in a private online gallery that will be live for one year.
You will be able to share the gallery with friends and family and create a folder with your favorite photos!
Prints take 3 weeks and albums 5-8 weeks of production once you approve the layout design.
If you haven't included prints and albums in your bespoke collection you can always reach out to me and I will guide you on the options.

Each couple is unique and your wedding is unique to you. It is the adventure of a lifetime that would be one of a kind.

DO YOU RECOMMEND WORKING WITH PLANNERS?
Absolutely! A talented wedding planner is there to serve you and bring your vision to life. This is what they do! A good wedding planner will be able to bring your vision to life and not just design wise but also help with the timeline and all little and big details that you might have missed. As a photographer it is more efficient to work with a planner as I will be able to focus on capturing your event flawlessly. You will not need to worry especially if your schedule is busy!
DO YOU SHOOT FILM OR DIGITAL?
I shoot both! Film is my main medium and I love shooting with it. It has such a unique quality to it, the way it captures light and skin tones, you just know it. I shoot with my digital camera for backup and dark scenarios, such as indoors with low light or outside at night and you have very little light.
DO YOU ONLY SHOOT WEDDINGS?
I believe in relationships with my couples and love to document their love story, which goes beyond a wedding day. Besides weddings I provide photography services for elopements. engagements (which offered exclusively to my wedding couples), boudoir, lifestyle sessions such as family and maternity and others. If you want to know more information about not wedding related sessions contact me here!
DO WE HAVE TO BUY PRINTS THROUGH YOU?
You don't have to buy your photos through me. However, I can not guarantee the quality of the photos. I work with a professional print house and hand check the print quality myself before shipping them out to you.
CAN I CUSTOMIZE A COLLECTION?
Yes! This is the way I work. Once we get off the call and we’ve discussed everything that you need I will tailor a custom offering that will be unique to your celebration. Let's talk about what you need.
DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS?
Absolutely! I love traveling and nothing will stop me from capturing your love story. Don't hesitate to reach out and ask all your burning questions! And it is not just for weddings that I travel. If you have a special location for an engagement session or any other type of session-I will travel to you.
HOW DO I HIRE THE RIGHT WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER?
Do your research on the different styles of photography art. Once you decide which style you love and want your celebration to be captured, make sure the photographer has that style. Also you want to make sure that you click with the photographer, remember- we are humans just like you. With enormous passion and honor to be able to preserve these moments. The most important things a photographer should care about is your photos and experience.
WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?
I shoot with film and digital cameras. For film I use Canon 35mm as well as Pentax 645 which is a medium format film camera. For digital I use Canon Mark IV. My cameras, lenses, and memory cards are always backed up, and all of my equipment is regularly serviced to ensure it continues to work properly.
HOW MANY PHOTOGRAPHERS WILL BE AT THE WEDDING?
I am the main photographer for your event. If its a small wedding I usually shoot alone and might have an assistant with me. For larger weddings of 70+ people you can add on a second photographer but it is not always necessary. It really depends on your needs and most importantly the location of the venue.
DO YOU SELL ALBUMS?
Yes! I create a design layout based on your favorite photos that you select. Once you approve the layout it is ready to be hand made and sent off to you directly. I also provide different sizes of prints that you will find out the details on the a la carte section.
