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.
How I Work
Every wedding package begins with 6 hours of coverage, minimum. My base packages include coverage from myself with the help of my assistant. A second photographer can be added to any package. 8 hours of coverage seems to be the sweet spot. The gallery I deliver to you will tell the entire story of your day, from hair and makeup to your uncle’s crazy dance moves.
Most decisions I make during the day are based on light. Great use of light will take a good photo and make it amazing. I will use natural light in most situations. If an external light is needed, it will be used in a way to replicate the look and feel of natural light.
My assistant, Katie, is my right hand that does a multitude of things for me. One of the most important jobs that Katie has is to help with light during the reception. We work together as a team. She hold the light in a specific way while I shoot. 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 your Wedding
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. My editing style is very natural. I am striving to make sure you look like the best and most natural version of yourself. 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.
