The Wedding Experience
The worst thing you can do is hire someone you don’t like.
Think about it – your wedding photographer is there for all of the highs and all of the lows on one of the biggest days of your life.
You need someone around that you are so comfortable with that you can be in the moment without worrying about if it was captured.
A little about your photographer
I have a firm belief that my best skill as a wedding photographer is that I am very laid back but I handle changes on the fly with ease. Keeping you focused on the good parts of the day, anticipating unexpected moments, and blending into the group when needed helps you enjoy your day more. That results in better photographs. After all, what good is a photo if you didn’t enjoy the experience anyway?
You can expect good advice, witty banter, and some good old-fashioned street engineering to make your day better.
What i do differently
There’s no judgment here.
Real is better
If any of that speaks to you, I might be the right photographer for you. Limited availability, reach out now for pricing & availability information.
The Wedding Process
You value authentic emotion and having fun, you’ve learned a little about me, and you’re a fan of my images. In short, you are picking up what I’m putting down. Head on over to my contact page, fill out my form and I’ll be in touch as soon as humanly possible.
We’ll meet in person or over video and deep dive into the thing you’re most looking forward to, what you love about each other, and make sure we’re a good fit for each other.
Once we’ve built out a custom package for your wedding day and you’re ready to make it official – We’ll celebrate! Then you’ll sign a digital contract and pay the non-refundable retainer to reserve your date.
The engagement session is something you should both look forward to. It’s a casual guided experience that feels like a date you have always wanted to go on.
I’ll help you with outfit choices, talk over locations, and use this time to get you used to my posing style and prompts. You’ll leave feeling closer to each other. This will feel like a breathe of fresh air and relaxation in the middle of planning.
Planning for the Best Photographs
Without plans weddings are stress but with careful planning and consideration of the things you value as a couple, the day feels easier and more free. The timeline will be custom to you, but will also take humanity into account. In other words, you’ll have enough time built into the day to reduce stress and account for things to go off schedule a bit here and there.
Just a few months before the wedding day, I’ll send you a questionnaire asking you for family groupings, vendor details, and about any special things you have planned. I’ll follow up with a phone call to catch up and review the flow of the day.
The Wedding Day
The day is here, you’ve been planning and prepping for months. We’ve created a timeline that has an emphasis on the things you value. Today will be filled with laughs and experiences you’ll remember for the rest of your life.
The goal is to create natural looking relaxed images filled with authentic emotion. We’ll laugh together, and end the day with champagne.
The Reveal Session
Ten weeks later, all your images will be color-graded and retouched. We will meet in person or over zoom to finalize the custom design of your wedding album and order it to be delivered directly to your door.
A hundred years from now when technology has changed, the prints and museum-grade heirloom album will still be around for everyone to see your story.
Does this Sound like you?
While I would love to be the photographer for every couple, I can’t be everyone’s wedding photographer.
This is pretty generalized, but the couples I connect with the most are:
