What is the first step?

I’d like to get to know you and your partner. A relationship with my couples in the time leading up to their wedding day is a priority to me. I’ll be beside you on one of the most important days of your life. You should feel comfortable! Also, I’m very easy going so we’ll be fast friends. Beware, I’m a belly-laugher.

How will you act on my wedding day?

I prefer a documentary style of wedding photography but will also give simple direction to create the best photographs. While I try to act as a fly on the wall, I’ll also care about you, your experience, your family, and will be a friend. If I notice you starting to feel anxious on your wedding day, I’ll remind you to take a deep breath and focus on those excited butterflies in your stomach. You’ll soon be with your best friend to say “I do!”

Can I see a full wedding gallery before booking you?

Of course you can! I encourage you to ask to see full wedding galleries from any photographer you consider. The amount of deliverable images depends on the amount of booking time, a second photographer, and the events of your day.
Here's a link to a real client gallery from an 8 hour day with a second photographer:

I don’t have a planner. Will you help me with my wedding day timeline?

Of course! Not sure why it’s a life skill, but I have a knack for wedding day timelines. I’ll ask you how many hours of photography coverage your budget will allow, what events you’d like to take place on your wedding day, how many family members you’d like portraits with, and more. Then, I’ll create a timeline and send it over for your approval. Piece of cake!

How will you take payments?

To book me as your wedding photographer, I require 25% of your wedding total as a deposit to claim your wedding date on my calendar. I won’t book any other shoots on your wedding day. My time and attention is YOURS.
The remainder of your wedding fee is due 30 days before your wedding date. If you decide that you’ll need more time while you’re enjoying your wedding day/night, I’m glad to stay later. Additional hour fees are due 14 days after your wedding day. I understand that all situations are different and am happy to restructure payment times and amounts if needed.

When will I receive my pictures?

I take great care when going through the images of your wedding day. I’ll select all of the best images and will remove anything repetitive. After that, I’ll creatively edit each image. Editing time is around 6 weeks. I know you’ll be DYING to see some images and will want to share them with the world. You’re not the only one. I can’t wait to see everything and cant’ keep myself away! I’ll send you preview images right away.

What will I receive?

You will be given an online viewing gallery for your wedding day. All images from the gallery will be available for download. Each site visitor will have their favorited images saved separately. You’ll be able to share your site link with all of your family and friends if you choose! You’ll have already purchased the digital images in your main fee. You can print the images as you please for years to come. I’ll also enable a shopping cart feature for easy access to high-quality, professional prints and products.
