yes, this is me burying my couple under her veil or 'mosquito netting' as lovingly referred to by one of my fab couples! i chose this shot for my bio because it's ME and the way i work. i want nothing more than for you to enjoy the photo part of your day, as much as the rest of your day. maybe more! i mean you get to be 'in love supermodels' for the day! no overly posed stiff awkward UGH & why?! type experiences allowed. lets have fun and celebrate and get some real & beautiful memories for you to hold on to for as long as you both shall live. ;)
Frequently Asked Questions
DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE OF WORK
sun-washed, slightly moody, & colorful. timeless, romantic & natural. i love film photographs and the simple beauty they reflect. rich colors, soft tones & full of ethereal light. so i find myself emulating it with my digital work.
WHAT CAN WE EXPECT WHEN WORKING WITH YOU?
i know being in front of a camera can be a bit nerve wracking, this is why i am behind it! lol! no worries though! when we work together my goal is to keep things relaxed light hearted and fun! i have had many clients tell me that they were so nervous and had no idea what to expect..only to end up having alot of fun! thats so important! if you are having fun, you forget the nerves and can focus on how much you love your lover...i will do the thing i do and as a team we will produce images you will love for your lifetime!
DO YOU HELP PLAN YOUR PART OF MY DAY?
absolutely! i create timelines for 99% of every couple i work with. it just makes sense for me to help guide you, since i know what i need to cover your day properly. i will send you my suggestion based on your ceremony & reception start time and we will plan from there!
DO YOU PREFER WE DO A 'FIRST LOOK'?
there are many advantages to seeing each other before your ceremony...takes the edge off nerves, you get to hold each other, get most of your photos done saving your guests from downtime in between. plus you can actually enjoy your cocktail hour this way! but its not a must have on my list. if you want to stay traditional DO IT! staying traditional has perks for me ...doing photos after the ceremony usually means softer dreamier light! so whatever you choose, i am good with!
HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT SHOT LISTS
short answer...not needed. covering 300+ weddings in a little over 13 years has given me the experience needed to cover weddings properly. from relaxed moments with your girls pre-ceremony to guests tearing up the dance floor during your reception and of course all the moments and traditions in between....no worries! we've got this!
CAN WE SKIP THE ENGAGEMENT SESSION?
of course! it is complimentary in your package so there is no deduction if you decide this. but i do encourage you to go ahead with it...this is the best way for you to see how i work. if you have nerves about being in front of the camera, this helps ease those...kind of like a warm up for the wedding day if you will! but beyond those things, it will give you photos of one of the most celebrated times in your love. who doesnt want that??!
