I believe that emotions and details are the moments worth remembering; from the elegant getting ready moments, the first look with your best friend and the teary-eyed dance with your dad - every heartfelt moment should be captured for you to cherish it for a lifetime. 
I strive for making each one of you comfortable enough to know that I have your back in whatever situation. 

        Every heartfelt moment should be captured, for you to cherish it for a lifetime. 

 Your love story is beautifully unique in its own way and it deserves to be celebrated!

02. Do you travel for weddings?

Questions

I love to shoot both! Film provides nostalgic and vintage touches to your gallery and it compliments digital as well. You can add on film to any wedding or session and in 2024 they will be included in my collections!

03. Do you shoot film or Digital?

Questions

Having a second photographer on your day provides more variety in your gallery. I can't be in two places at once right? So the second photographer acts as my second pair of eyes and captures extra moments throughout the day.
They are also helpful if the day runs behind, together we work double time and altogether you receive extra images in your final gallery. 

04. Why is a second Photographer important?

Questions

No. I do no't require engagement sessions with me. However they are very beneficial during the wedding photography  process. Engagement Sessions provide a way for you and me to get to know each other better, building a better connection with you prior to your wedding day helps me to capture your day more genuinely in a timeless way.

Plus you get to experience first hand how I work, what to expect and gain more confidence in front of the camera.

05. Are engagement Sessions required?

Questions

I book no further than 12 months out from your Wedding Date. This ensures that my style, philosophy and process correctly aligns with what you're looking for.
The majority of weddings book with me 6-10 months out.

06. How far in advanced can we book?

Questions

I specialize in capturing the emotions of the day, through genuine and timeless imagery. Through those images you will receive b&w moments, true to color and intimate film like candids. The majority of your gallery will be in color but some will consist of black and white. 

07. What variety of images do you provide?

Questions

While your wedding is being captured I am shooting in dual mode which automatically creates two copies of each image. When your wedding day has commenced, your images will be full stored on two different external hard drives and stored in the cloud. After this backup is successful, the memory cards filled on your wedding day will not be erased until you have received your final gallery.

08. What does your backup system look like?

Questions

Yes Absolutely! Your gallery has an integrated online print store where you can conveniently order from the BEST quality print labs that I have hand-selected for you. 

09. Do you offer Prints?

Questions

I'm glad you asked! You inquire through my online form on my inquiry page, If I have your date available we will hop on a brief Zoom call and make sure we’re the right fit, then I send you a contract + invoice that can be filled out online in a few clicks, then we celebrate! 

10. How do we book with you?
