Now that you know a little bit about me, I’d like to let you know a little about my style and my process. My favorite images are almost always the moments through your wedding day that happen organically. I love the moment that the bride and groom see each other for the first time, whether that is before the ceremony or when the bride walks down the aisle. If you decide to see each other before the ceremony, I will set you up in a spot with great light, and then shoot from afar with a long lens. This is your moment and not one that should be posed or interfered with. Of course there will be some posed photos throughout the day, but I promise that you will not be smiling at the camera for lengthy periods of time.
Every wedding package begins with 6 hours of coverage, minimum. Most clients choose an 8 hour package and sometimes will add an hour. I like for the gallery I deliver to you to tell the entire story of your day, from hair and makeup to your uncle’s crazy dance moves.
How I work
I mostly shoot solo. A second shooter can be added to any package. Most wedding days you will see myself and an assistant. There are a few reasons why I prefer to be the only shooter. One is that I have never felt that a wedding gallery has been lacking with just myself. Second, another shooter can often turn into someone that I need to try to avoid getting into my shots. My assistant provides a service that a second shooter does not. My assistant helps to light the reception in a way that cannot be done by a second shooter. This light is essential to my process. I use that extra little boost of light off of my camera to allow the ambiance of the room to come through. All of the hard work you have poured into that space will be captured in the same way you meant for it to be seen. It also adds texture to the photos that cannot be achieved with a flash on top of my camera. I feel that this adds a special element to my work.
After the shoot
I ask clients to be patient when it comes to the editing process. I am meticulous about my editing, and this is where the majority of my time is spent. I pour through every single photograph to make sure that each one exceeds expectations. Wedding clients can expect a Facebook sneak peek a few days after their wedding, a blog post before their photos are delivered, and photo delivery within 4-6 weeks.
Delivery of images
I deliver all images through my online gallery, hosted by Pixieset. My clients may download all of their photos off of this site. My clients also have the ability to purchase professional prints through the same site. Unlimited digital downloads are included in the price of all photography packages.
Wedding Packages begin at $2,145. Images are included in all packages. Albums are also offered.
