It is so important to me to work with couples who are stoked about my work and connect to what I am doing. My relationship with my couples is deeply personal to me; it is so much more than numbers and budgets. Every wedding is so unique in nature and is not one-size-fits-all. I would love to hear more about your big day! Please contact me for detailed wedding coverage information and package options.

Commonly Asked Questions
Q: Why does wedding photography cost what it does?
That is an awesome question. I have struggled to put it into words, but I found an amazing article that explains it perfectly. Read it HERE!
Q: How far in advance should I book with you?
For your wedding, as soon as you book your venue! My wedding season usually books up 9-12 months in advance, but I still take bookings up to a few months before the big day if I'm still available. For portrait sessions, my weekends usually book up 6-8 weeks out, and my week days usually book up 2-3 weeks out. The sooner the better; it's never to soon to get you on my calendar!
Q: How do I book you for my wedding?
Start out my filling out my wedding contact form and I will get back to you asap!!! I will send over my pricing guide, we can have an in-person or Skype meeting if you want (although some people just choose to make things official without a meeting with is cool with me!), and then a 25% deposit and a signed contract will secure the day.
Q: How do you deliver my images?
I deliver my images to my clients in an online gallery that can be password protected if you want. You can download the high-res files from there and print them wherever, or you can print them straight from the gallery. Easy peasy.
Q: How long does it take to receive my images?
Turnaround time for portrait sessions is 2-4 weeks, turnaround time for wedding galleries is 6-10 weeks.
Q: How many images will I see from my wedding or session?
Weddings usually yield around 700-1200 final edited images depending on a lot of factors from how long I'm there, how many photographers I have with me, etc. Portrait sessions (such as boudoir, family, etc.) usually yield around 70-150 final edited images. Engagement sessions usually yield around 150 final edited images (sometimes more if we go to more than one location).
Q: What do you shoot with?
I shoot with two Canon 5D Mark iii bodies. The lenses I use are: 35mm 1.4, 85mm 1.2, 135mm 2.0, 50mmm 1.2, 24-70 2.8, and 45 2.8 tilt-shift, and a couple Canon Speedlites. If you aren't a photographer, you might not know what any of that means, but I am happy to explain and elaborate on what I use and why if you're curious!
Q: Do you work alone?
Not always! If you hire me to photograph your wedding, second shooters are available. For boudoir bash events, I have the best hair and makeup team to help me make you feel beautiful and pampered!
