Thank you so much for being here
Let me share more about the process and experience of having me as your photographer.
I understand that this process of finding a photographer is probably all new for you. So I want to break things down and make them as simple as possible to reassure you that the decision you make is indeed the right decision for you. Below is a little info to give you an idea of what to expect from me.
How it works
What I'm about
Your wedding day is about the two of you! It's about your friends, your family and most importantly it's about you having one of the best days of your life. This is exactly what I focus on too. This is why my approach is journalistic and documentary in style. I want to capture you, your friends, and your family as they are and tell your story as it is.
What is your style?
As a creative, storytelling photographer, I aim to artfully record and present the authentic story of your day. By using a hands off documentary approach this allows you to truly experience the magic of your wedding day. I do that by unobtrusively capturing candid moments as they happen, without directing or intervening. This inconspicuous approach helps me capture the natural magic of your day, revealing the true essence and character of yourselves, your guests and your experience. When the time is right, I will also take a more active role in offering direction in ways that don't feel awkward or posed.
How many images will we receive?
My goal is to tell your story… fully, completely and beautifully. In doing so, I emphasize quality over quantity. I would rather give you a few hundred amazing photographs, than a couple thousand “so-so” ones. That being said my couples usually receive 400 to 800 images, depending on the length and nature of their celebration.
When will we see our photographs?
My fiance is uncomfortable having his picture taken. How can you help him on the wedding day?
I aim to wow you with a couple “sneak peeks” within a few days of your wedding. I take great care in making sure all your edited photographs will look stunning for years to come, and completion takes anywhere from 6 to 8 weeks (depending on time of year). When your collection is complete, your online gallery will be made available for you to share with all your friends and family.
I'm a very calm, mellow person who tends to blend into the scene rather than bring attention to myself or my cameras. That, combined with the documentary style, will put you at ease within the first half-hour of your getting ready time. The only time you’ll really be aware of the cameras is during the family group photos and creative portraits. During this time, I will guide you through everything so you can just be yourselves while I take care of the rest. In addition, I make it a point to talk with each of you, and even your parents if possible, before your wedding day so we can get to know each other. The goal is to be good buddies (not strangers) when the big day is finally here.
