So how does this work?
Fill out the form & book me
Whenever you’re ready, just fill out the contact form here! I’ll get back to you too as soon as possible so we can talk about your vision and discuss your needs. :) You'll receive helpful resources to help plan your journey and I'll be there to answer any questions you have. When you've decided on a package that works for you, we'll get all the booking forms out of the way and then the fun begins!
your Engagement session
Now you get to see how much fun and easier being photographed will be then you may think! Be prepared for fun, games, laughter, and love. This session gives us a chance to have some fun, get to know each other, and also gives you a chance to feel more comfortable in front of the camera to help you relax for your big day!
pre-wedding consult and your wedding
One month before your wedding we'll schedule a time to meet for coffee, wine, or tequila (in person or on zoom) and go over your questionnaire, discuss your timeline, and go over all the nitty gritty details to make sure I get your most important moments and so you feel prepared and excited knowing that I got your back on your wedding day.
gallery delivery & prints
After the guests have gone and the cake's been eaten, I'll back up your photos to multiple hard drives and cloud accounts and get started with the painstakingly loving process of editing the photos from your beautiful day. You can expect your private online gallery to be delivered in around 6 weeks, where you can easily print, download, and share your priceless memories.
How would you describe your photography style?
I love authentic images that are filled with emotion. I love warm earth tones that complement our beautiful PNW colors. I seek out genuine moments that make me FEEL something.
Most photos are lightly posed, meaning I’ll help get you into place first and then encourage interaction and real expressions by directing you with play and prompts to help you engage with each other while I document it all.
You never have to worry about what you'll do or how you need to act in front of the camera, I'm here to guide and direct you every step of the way. :)
I make sure to get a mix of both traditional posed photos as well as the candid documentary kind that I love. I want you to have authentic memories in both styles!
I am FOR: Genuine smiles, tickle fights, personality, playing chase, slobbery dogs, creativity, being yourself. My GOAL: To capture the emotion & connection between each of you. This life is precious and I’m here to celebrate your beautiful, imperfect selves.
When will my images be delivered?
Eeeee! I love this part! I know you're excited and I'M always so excited for my clients to see their love captured and how beautiful they are. Your gallery will be delivered via a private online password protected gallery 6-8 weeks after your wedding.
What if you cancel or cant attend my wedding?
Don't fret, my love, I haven't yet not been able to attend a wedding. :) But, as with any supplier, it is possible an emergency or illness could prevent me from attending your wedding (I'd have to be hella laid up though if that's ever the case).
In this VERY unlikely event, I will do my utmost to find a similar style photographer replacement from my trusted network of professional wedding photographers. In my experience from what I've seen within my network, there is always a talented photographer available to help if needed last minute.
If this is not possible, then the final, and absolute worst and last case scenario is that I will refund the money you have paid me.
I’m not photogenic at all!
Believe it or not, almost everyone tells me this before their session - and it never turns out to be true.
I love guiding my clients through having their photos taken, and I have a lot of tricks up my sleeve to make you look fabulous! When you’re having a great time, you’ll look more beautiful than you thought was possible.
And I want you to know and understand something: we always notice our own flaws WAY more than anyone else may notice them - if they even notice at all.
All kids see when looking at a photo of their mother is their beautiful mom.
All your partner see's when looking at a photo of you at your engagement or wedding, is how much they love YOU.
They dont see what you see. They just see someone they love. Always try to remember that.
What Happens if your equipment breaks?
We all know that from time to time technology can sometimes run into some issues. However, I make sure I have enough equipment to bring as a back-up on the day. I keep all my equipment well maintained so rest assured that I have taken every step I can to prevent problems and protect your images.
For extra peace of mind, I also always shoot onto dual SD cards in the camera simultaneously, which ensures multiple copies of each image, I make sure to back up the photos in 3 separate places after each wedding as immediately as possible, and I NEVER delete the photos from the original SD card until after gallery delivery.
Even after gallery delivery, I keep all your photos backed up in multiple locations for 5 years in case anything happens to your own personal copy for any reason.
Where should I print my images?
You can purchase prints, canvas', and more straight from your online gallery! Your heirlooms will be printed by a professional printing lab and delivered straight to your door.
I do not recommend printing your images at Shutterfly, Target, Walmart, CVS, or Costco. These labs are not designed to handle printing professional photography.
But I aint your momma, and I'm not going to know where you get them printed (just do it though cuz it's important). I do have to let you know, though, that I cant guarantee the quality or accurate image colors if you print from any other lab other than the one connected to your gallery.
