As a photographer, I am a lover of intricate details. Shoes, jewelry, cuff links, perfume bottles, bow ties, pocket squares, love notes, flower crowns, rings, handkerchiefs, table arrangements, dessert bars, etc. (My list could honestly go on forever!) I believe that the small details are what set amazing weddings apart, and I strive to tell a story with each and every event I photograph.
I would describe my style as organic and documentary, with a mix of editorial. I love allowing certain moments to take place naturally, but will never turn down an opportunity to style the perfect shot! My clients and couples tend to be joyful, genuine, loving and absolutely crazy about each other! I truly value the lifelong friendships this job brings me; my clients are some of my favorite people in the world!
A quick glimpse at what to expect when booking, planning, styling, shooting and receiving your wedding images...
You filled out an inquiry form, heard back directly from me, & fate has determined we are the perfect fit! Hooray! The next step to becoming an official HSN Bride is completing a formal contract & paying the retainer fee. Once that is finished, it's on to planning your engagement session!
To help you in the planning process, you will receive an official HSN Engagement Session Style Guide! This covers all the nitty gritty details: date, time, location, along with what to wear, bring & expect!
Engagements are the perfect opportunity to get to know one another & for you to become comfortable in front of my camera. You will laugh, play & sail through your session stress-free. No cheesy smiles or awkward poses. Just you & your love doing what you do best... loving each other!
We've coordinated back and forth about your day, but now it's time to do the major planning over coffee, Skype or even a phone call! Together we will discuss your itinerary, shot list and all the important details. Feel free to ask any last minute questions before the big day arrives!
All our hard work and planning has come down to this! My number one priority is that you enjoy & soak in the entire day. I will be your personal paparazzi, capturing every moment from beginning to end. We will laugh, cry, & most importantly DANCE together all day!
Wedding galleries typically take four to six weeks to deliver. You will receive an online gallery of high-resolution, hand-edited images for viewing, sharing & printing! Your USB drive of images, along with the print release, will arrive via mail as well.
If you chose a wedding package with a custom designed album (or are interested in ordering one) we will begin the design process after the gallery is delivered. Together, we will hand-select our favorite images, design the layout, choose a cover & finalize all the details before it is printed and shipped directly to you!
All wedding packages include a complimentary engagement session, eight hours of continuous wedding day coverage, an online gallery of high-resolution images (for viewing, sharing, & downloading) and the digital files with a print release!
Engagement and couples sessions include a two hour shoot at the location of your choice, two outfit changes and an online gallery of 40+ edited images for viewing, downloading, sharing, & ordering prints.
Family portrait collections include a one hour session at the location of your choice and an online gallery of 30+ edited images for viewing, downloading, sharing & ordering prints.
Maternity collections include a 1.5 hour session at the location of your choice, 1-2 outfits and an online gallery of 30+ edited images for viewing, downloading, sharing & ordering prints.
Mini sessions are held throughout the calendar year at various locations chosen by the photographer. The mini session calendar is released each spring and bookings are scheduled on a first come, first serve basis. Dates will be released on the blog, Facebook and Instagram, but the very first to find out will be those on the early bird email list!
