On a wedding day, that imperfection is what guides my lens — a shadow falling asymmetrically across your shoulder, the chaotic clinking of glassware amid setting sunlight, the wrinkled hands of your grandparents entwined as they sway to their favorite Dean Martin tune… Imperfection is what sets your wedding apart from every other.
Imperfection is also the first flash of evidence of something else I see as essential to my work: authenticity. My images are meant to be relics of who you really were during a moment in time — they are evidence of you feeling truly loved, beautiful and in awe of the world around you, all in your own particular way.
I look for subtle emotional cues, unexpected collections of people/places/things and the way your wedding interacts with the real environment it’s staged in. If I am doing my job right, your gallery will be a visual distillation of what you care about, how you affect others and the distinct nature of the love held between you and your partner.
This phase includes your inquiry, a discovery meeting to ensure we are a good personal fit and that I understand your priorities, followed by a proposal and booking.
During this phase, we will take your engagement photos if that is something you opt to do, and I may connect with you or your planner about your aesthetic direction.
These will be the final few months before your wedding, during which I will work with you or your planner to home in on the logistics of your celebration.
What we’ve all been waiting for! I will shoot your wedding day. You will receive a few images very shortly after so you can spread the news.
I will take a deep breath and evaluate your day. Then I will edit and curate your wedding day so that as you relive it, it is both beautiful and contextualized.
Your gallery will be available on an online platform that allows you to view and download your images in both web-size and high-res formats. I will deliver your gallery within six to ten weeks. Delivery times are really dependent on my workload. Please note that weddings that take place earlier in the year tend to have shorter delivery times and those closer to the end tend to have longer delivery times. This may be a good time to mention that I limit the number of weddings I take specifically so that I can put a lot of time and energy into the ones I do work on.
Your gallery will be connected to a shop full of amazing print product vendors and they offer everything from loose prints to calendars to fine art wedding albums. You can work on the selections yourselves or you can hire me at an hourly rate to design products for you.
After our discovery call, you will receive a proposal based on what we discussed. It may include an engagement session, rehearsal dinner coverage, a second or even third photographer — all depending on the needs of the event. A signed contract and a retainer amounting to 50% of the total estimated fee is required to confirm your booking and ensure your date is held. The balance will be due 30 days prior to your wedding date.
