Yes - most of my couples will utilize my insights to figure out the best location as well as the best time of day for photography at that location.
I do. More and more, I have focused on elopement photography, but I do still take on several larger weddings each year.
My background has created my current style. I have worked as a photojournalist at a newspaper, was trained in commercial photography at Brooks Institute of Photography, and own/operate a Family Portrait Studio. Combining all of this at your wedding, I know when to be a ninja to blend in and let things happen, but I'm also not afraid to speak up and help you look your best with a quick posing tip.
Light - I'm always looking for and using the BEST possible light - whether that's available from the sun or reflected off a building, or if I need to bring in an accent light or reflector, I'll make you look the best I possibly can!
Ultimately, I want to make photos that look/feel natural and celebrate who you are.
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.
How many hours of coverage do you normally provide?
I've landed on coverages of 5, 7 and 9 hours for bigger weddings, and 1, 3 and 5 hours for smaller/more intimate weddings. I've done as long as 18 hours, and as many as 4 days in a row - so it's up to you and what you'd like for your wedding day. My suggestion, if you're thinking about 18 hours, split things up and do a second day of coverage - we can go explore and create epic photos without rushing your wedding day.
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.
Day After Sessions are the ultimate solution and make for endless opportunity to create epic photos!
