I tend to run from the “typical” wedding photos and work hard to find photos that speak about you two, your connection and your story.
Some have told me my work is:
However you describe it, I bring my background working as a photojournalist and a degree in commercial photography together to take the time to light when needed, find epic available light when it presents itself, using all of that to create photos that speak from my connection with each of the couples I work with.
How many photos will we receive?
My goal is to deliver a curated collection of photos that capture the story of your wedding day. How many photos that is largely depends on each wedding, the activities taking place and the guests.
I would rather focus on knocking each image out of the park for you, so rather than aiming for a number – I prefer to go into your wedding day capturing it as it unfolds vs. attempting to force a final number.
What is your background?
I found photography in high school while avoiding “drama” and “cooking” classes. I fell in love with creating photos and soon began working for the local newspaper. After a few years as a photojournalist, I earned my degree in commercial photography at Brooks Institute of Photography.
For a time I had visions of racing mountain bikes professional and chased that dream – I still ride, but I found out that I much prefer to ride for fun than to train.
How many hours of coverage do you normally provide?
Most couples will book me for Complete coverage. With Complete coverage – you book me, and the date is yours. Plan your wedding, and as your timeline comes together, we’ll review things and make sure I’m there for anything and everything that you want to have documented (and I’ll probably stay longer than that!) No overage fees, no last minute haggling about paying for more coverage the week of your wedding.
Just me, dedicated to telling your story – for the full day – whatever that may be for you.
My mom wants to know if you take family/posed photos?
I get it – my mom asked the same thing when I was getting married. And by all means, we’ll take the time to do beautiful posed family formals. Prior to your wedding we’ll figure out what groupings are important for your family and friends and we’ll make sure we plan for the time needed to knock those out of the park.
Can we create epic adventure photos on our wedding day?
I live for epic adventures – for pushing things to the limit (and maybe a bit past) – if you’re down to allow time for it, I’d LOVE to go on adventure with you on your wedding day – or even the day after.
I believe adventures doesn’t exist within a constrained amount of time – if you’d like to take things to another level, let’s setup complete coverage and/or a day-after session.
